Unless you have been living under a highlighter-free, internet-resistant rock, you will have heard of Huda Beauty

Huda Kattan owns one of the most popular beauty inspiration and makeup tutorial Instagram pages on the net, and boasts a following of 21.8million. 

As well as being one of the world's biggest beauty influencers, the mum-of-one has also created a seriously popular makeup brand. 

Huda Beauty is a favourite among beauty YouTubers, with the pigmented palettes and liquid lipsticks being spotted in the collections of every influencer worth their salt. 

The collection hasn't been available specifically in Ireland since it's launch, but that's all about to change. 

Brown Thomas is about to play host to the super-hyped beauty brand. 

Taking to Instagram, the Irish institution shared a video of Huda discussing the Irish launch.

'Ireland I am coming for you!' Huda herself exclaims in the video. 

'Hey everyone, it's Huda from Huda Beauty, and we are so excited to be finally touching ground in Ireland.'

'We are launching in the Brown Thomas beauty lounge in Dublin, and also on BrownThomas.com.'

There's no word yet on an exact date but we'll keep you posted. 

We'll be dusting on the highlighter and sharpening our elbows…



Beauty fanatics listen up!

Following the successful launch of her second Estee Lauder collection, Victoria Beckham has announced that she is coming to Brown Thomas' Grafton Street store this week.

Revealing the news on Instagram, the pop star turned beauty mogul shared a video with her 17.2 million followers.

In the clip in we see Victoria write the letters XVB on a mirror in a lipstick from the collection. The caption reads: “Excited to be coming to @officialbrownthomas in Dublin this week! See you there!! x VB”

The new lineup includes 18 brand new products, along with 10 favourites form the first capsule including the Morning Aura Illuminator and nude lip liner in Victoria.

Exact details of the upcoming appearance are yet to be confirmed, though rumour has it the star is due to be in store this Wednesday.

But don't worry, we'll be sure to keep you posted.



When you think of getting a piercing, Claire's Accessories and tattoo parlous are probably the first places that spring to mind. Brown Thomas? Not so much. 

However, all that is about to change. 

If you're in the mood for an up-market ear piercing, Brown Thomas will be playing host to a pop-up with none other than the iconic piercing concept Maria Tash.

Known for the cultivation of the 'curated ear,' Maria encourages her clients to make the most of their ear piercings through an individual combination of intricate, interloping jewellery and unique piercing placement. 

As outlined in Brown Thomas' Insta story today, the piercer has created individual ear looks for tonnes of celebs, from Beyonce to Britney to FKA Twigs to Miley Cyrus. 

Global piercing specialists from Maria's studio will be piercing in a week-long pop-up at the Brown Thomas store on Grafton Street, from September 2 to September 9. 

Check out some of their amazing work below, and book your appointment online.

Is it still too early to mention the 'C' word?

Yes, is the answer – but try telling that to the folks over at Brown Thomas.

A new Christmas section has launched at the Cork, Limerick and Dublin stores, offering eager customers some of “the most luxurious and stylish” festive gear around, and we're just not sure how to feel.

The windows will also be decked out with extravagant displays of festive nonsense.

According to NewsTalk, Brown Thomas creative director John Redmond says: "Our aim is to offer that special Brown Thomas magic to our much valued customer, the season begins when our windows open."

And while that all sound fantastic, we reckon the magic may have worn off by the time Christmas actually rolls around.

Needless to say, Twitter is divided about the controversial move.

18 weeks and counting, ladies!



In desperate need of a new lippy?

Well, today is your lucky day – or tomorrow, rather.

In celebration of International Lipstick Day on Saturday July 29, MAC cosmetics are giving customers the opportunity to get their hands on one of the brand's cult lipsticks completely free of charge.

But, there's a catch.

As the old saying goes, there's no such thing as a free lunch and so you will need to spend a minimum of €50.00 in order to avail of the offer

The colours available are Cyber, Stone, Fleshpot, Media, Captive, and MAC Red.

This limited promotion will run in Arnotts and Brown Thomas stores all over the country for one day only.

So, if your makeup bag has been looking a little sparse lately, this is the perfect excuse to stock up on all those essential beauty buys.



As part of a collaboration known as The Textile Project, students from the National College of Art and Design have seen their creations hit the shelves of Ireland's most luxurious department store this week.

Tasked with creating beautiful, colourful and printed fabrics, twenty students from the college rose to the challenge, with two of the patterns ultimately used to create a limited edition silk scarf and candle wrap.

The scarf has been produced in Ireland by CREATE alumni Sara O’Neill while the exclusive wrap decorates a White Pomegranate scented candle which has been produced by Max Benjamin in Enniskerry.

Inspired by everything from the distillers press in the NCAD to the changing profile of the Dublin skyline, the students also saw their prints adorn the iconic Brown Thomas shopping bag.

Truly impressed by the students' creations, John Redmond, the Creative Director of the Brown Thomas said: "The brief was to work with the 2nd year students to embrace colour, pattern and textures in their design and we feel the work that the students have delivered has far exceeded all our expectations."

"What’s really exciting about this, collaboration is that we have developed two products that will be sold instore – a limited edition candle and silk scarf using these beautiful vibrant prints!”

"This project provides an opportunity to showcase the creativity, innovation and skills that NCAD students acquire and develop during their studies," added Angela Kelly, Head of Design for Body and Environment at NCAD.

The products are on sale until stock lasts and the exhibition runs until June 14, so if you want to support Ireland's next generation of designers, you know what to do!



Brown Thomas has just unveiled their first ever Beauty Lounge, and it looks as sumptuous, secluded and serene as you could imagine. 

The stunning new beauty boutique features a living wall covered in plants, as well as luxurious pink velvet furnishings.

Not only does the new lounge look amazing, but the beauty treatments available are giving us life.

"We are delighted to introduce the first ever Brown Thomas Beauty Lounge on Dublin’s Clarendon Street," reads the BT website.

"Dedicated to the best beauty services, the luxurious lounge will house Ireland’s first blowdry bar from Aveda and manicures, pedicures, brows and lashes from Nails Inc."

The new beauty bonanza of a boutique is open from 7am, so if you have a big event right after work, you can get your blow dry and your mani before you head to the office for the day. 

The price list is astonishingly affordable, with eyelash extensions coming in at €30.00 and brow tinting costing €10.00.

Their braiding bar charges €19.00 for plaited styles, so get booking before festival season!

We're also extremely intrigued by the Unicorn Manicure, which sounds absolutely amazing.

The salon is also promoting a 15 minute Need for Speed manicure, which definitely suits our mad schedules. 

The new Beauty Lounge sounds completely dreamy and we can't wait to see it for ourselves!



It's time to get excited about gym gear, because Lululemon is officially open for business in Brown Thomas. 

The brand has previously only been available online, but now the yogis of Ireland can rejoice in the knowledge that the brand is available in our Emerald Isle.

Brown Thomas launched the new brand this morning, and the Lululemon section on Level 2 of the Grafton Street store is ready for a retail rumble. 

"A Vancouver based brand, they are the leaders in healthy living with an amazing range of athletic wear including running, gym and yoga."

"Discover Lululemon in a new, relaxing and inviting space in our Dublin store this April," reads a description on the Brown Thomas website. 

We're sure there is already a legging-clad queue out the door, so if you didn't make it down, the brand is available online. 

The high-quality work out gear range at BT will include clothing and accessories.

We can't wait to elevate our gym gear game to the next level. 

Check us out on Snapchat later at @shemazingie, because we'll be popping down to Brown Thomas to have a peek at all the covetable workout gear. 



Even though Halloween is still ten days away, many shops and department stores have already put up their Christmas lights and trees.

Brown Thomas has always been one of those stores that go all out for the festive season, and they went ahead and decorated their windows today – a full two weeks earlier than last year.

The display is somewhat more traditional than previous years, and it was met by some joy, as well as some cynicism.

Here's what the people of Twitter had to say about it:

Well… What do you think of this early display?


Making its glorious debut just last year – the arrival on these shores of personalised jars of Nutella brought SHEmazing! out in a cold sweat of chocolatey, hazelnutty, sugary goodness.

And now it's the confirmation we've all been waiting: personalised Nutella is back and it's available RIGHT NOW.

Allowing you to brandish the otherwise humble jar, Brown Thomas Dublin is offering the service from today.

For those in other parts of the country, fear not: Brown Thomas Cork will be also doing the same honours from this Friday, with Limerick following suit from Tuesday, October 18. 

Individual personalised jars will be priced at €5.50 or when presented in a gift box priced at €7.50. Need something really 'WOW' for that special someone? Then present the personalised jars in a boxed gift set complete with a Nutella mug (priced at €20) and a Nutella spatula and bread board (priced at €25).

Heres to tubs of Nutella all round this festive season! Yup, that's pretty much every Christmas present we can think of sorted.


If you're heading to Brown Thomas this weekend, get ready for YEEZY mania.

September 24 will see Kanye West's new YEEZY BOOST 350 V2s hit the shelves of Brown Thomas in Dublin.

Apparently, Kanye has changed the shoe game this year and redesigned his famous footwear with "premium materials" and "unmistakable aesthetics."

The 350 V2 will see a brighter version of the runner, as a streak of solar red covers the middle of the shoe with the words… or letters… 'SPLY-350'.

So, if you fancy having the "world's most influential and sought-after shoe," then you'll need €220 to spare.

And, if you don't fancy waiting in line, you can also sign up for a chance to buy the latest version here. No more quese… Sweet!

Gwan, Yeezy…



While the rest of us have our fingers crossed for another few weeks of sunshine and beer gardens, the good folk behind one of Ireland's most iconic department stores have decided that it's officially time to turn our backs on summer, and usher in the yuletide.

Unveiling its renowned Christmas Market in its Dublin, Cork and Limerick branches this Thursday, Brown Thomas have reminded us that there's only a mere – wait for it – four months and one week until the big day.

We know, we know. How disorganised do you feel right now?!

From Christmas trees and decorations to gift ideas and general seasonal merriment, the dedicated festive spaces in the store's three branches will be your one-stop-shop for all things Christmas-related.

As long as you don't mind having to take off your sunnies before venturing in, that is.

And for those people who have everything gift-wrapped by October? Go wild!
