We’ve got a packed week planned at the Bridges, with mini makeovers, competitions, tips and tricks and lots more to check out at the centre from 1 to 6 July.

Brands from Debenhams to Boots and even Hotel Chocolat are getting involved and every shopper who spends more than £20 on beauty products can claim a mystery gift on us.

To give you some inspiration on what to look out for this week, we’ve picked a selection of our favourite products for summer.


Debenhams, Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess Mineral Infused Matte Bronzer

The forecast in the North East isn’t always reliable so invest in a high-end bronzer to achieve that effortless sun-kissed glow, whatever the weather.

Price £28


Hotel Chocolat, Coffee Body Scrub


Keep your skin looking and feeling its best with a body scrub. Not only will it leave you silky smooth, but it has a delicious coffee aroma, too.

Price £16


Lush, Manta Lipstick Refill

Lush has some great lipstick colours for summer and their new refillable design is great for the environment, too: which is an easy way to cut down on single-use plastics.

Price £8.50


Boots, Benefit High Beam

Perfect for day or night, High Beam is on hand to help you achieve a dewy glow. Apply it under makeup for a subtle shine or use on your cheekbones for a dazzling highlight.

Debenhams, MAC The Disney Collection Princess Jasmine eye shadow palette

If you can’t celebrate summer with a touch of shimmer, then when can you? The new limited edition palette from MAC has nine gorgeous shades to choose from, all inspired by Princess Jasmine.

Superdrug, Eylure Strip Lashes No 109

False eyelashes are an easy way to transform a look and there are plenty of styles to choose from. Go thick and dramatic for a night on the town or light and wispy for a bit of a lift at a daytime event.

Price £7.75


The Body Shop, Pinita Colada Body Butter

Whether you’re heading off somewhere exotic or spending summer in the city, keep your skin hydrated and smelling amazing with The Body Shop’s range of body butters.
