Leeds will host its first city-wide cosmetics festival that aims to “look beyond beauty”.

Make Up Leeds will be a two-day event that will offer demos, tutorials and talks from influential speakers.

The festival, taking place on September 29-30, will include talks from British makeup artist and columnist Ruby Hammer MBE, who co-founded Ruby and Millie make up, as well as makeovers, tutorials and a meet and greet with Love Island stars Kaz Crossley and Alexandra Cane.

The full line up is yet to be announced and will be revealed in the coming weeks.

In total, more than 90 cosmetics stores, franchises, restaurants and bars are taking part with more than 110 individual offers available.

Andrew Cooper, chief executive of Leeds BID, commented: “Leeds is already firmly on the map for its incredible retail offering but we’re ready to build on that reputation and take it one step further – we want Leeds to become a beauty capital of the UK.

“Leeds is a city where beauty can be found in so many different forms. Made Up Leeds will reflect that diversity, whilst offering a platform to the best talent from Yorkshire and further afield.”

Commuters can also get glammed up at Harvey Nichols’ “Eyes and Lips” counters located at Leeds train station throughout the weekend.

Festivalgoers will need to sign up get their “Glamour Passport” and goody bag, which can be picked up at collection points across the city centre and includes a full list of offers, samples and information on speakers and demonstrations.
