When it comes to cosmetics, one shade does not suit all.

Here at PHOENIX Towers, we are constantly on the prowl for that perfect, skin-perfecting foundation. Expectant trips to endless cosmetic counters continually end in heart-wrenching disappointment, we thought that dream shade was too good to be true. So imagine our excitement on discovering the ultimate beauty mecca: a cosmetics laboratory which promises an end to our shade-matching woes. Call off the search, because we’ve found the perfect match for you.

Cosmetics à la Carte was conceived way back in 1971, when friends Christina Stewart and Lynne Sanders decided to solve every woman’s biggest beauty conundrum and create a line of cosmetics to suit every skin tone. Their philosophy was that our makeup should be as unique as we are – and it is the mantra which has allowed their Knightsbridge store to become one of the beauty industry’s most beloved secrets. Today, the store boasts an impressively star-studded client base – we even hear that Gaga herself likes her cosmetics made-to-order.

The brand offers products for the face, eyes, lips and nails – but the truly unique part is that each product can be tailored to your specific skin type and tone – created from a cocktail of pigments to provide a flawless match. The bespoke service is also good news for anyone who has experienced the heartache of a discontinued product: lipsticks, glosses, varnishes and shadows can all be brought back from the brink of extinction, recreated by Linda herself in her London-based lab.

It’s couture skincare, and that, we believe, is something to be very, very excited about.

Revolutionise your make-up bag with a bespoke beauty appointment at Cosmetics à la Carte, 19b Motcomb Street, Knightsbridge, SW1X 8LB.
