Armand Beasley, bespoke beauty expert and fellow Mancunian, feels right at home setting up shop with a bespoke beauty lounge at the rear of Selfridges beauty hall at Selfridges Exchange Square.
Armand, has clients ranging from Goldie Hawn to the Queen of Malaysia and has worked at both The Oscars, and The BAFTAs. He has now teamed up with the worlds leading department store, Selfridges who have won this award for the third year in a row. During their Beauty Project initiative, Armand will be on hand to offer specialised, advanced tailoring to every beauty need. His unique approach will revolutionise everyday beauty routines, leaving his guest feeling empowered, confident, and indulgently pampered.
Armand has set up a quant beauty salon for him to treat his guest to a mini getaway and a fresh face. The STYLEetc team got a chance to sit down with the beauty expert himself to learn a few tricks or should I say treats, to enhance ones beauty both inside and out.

Grace Jones- I believe she has great skin!
