Right now, the cutesy Topshop Tour Bus, a white van covered in a stylish heart print, is parked next to hustle and bustle of Union Square, kicking off a four-day tour of giveaways and appearances across the city. Today, their makeup team took the wheel and gave away makeup tutorials to the first lucky few that showed at the busy square. We also snagged a free makeup bag that will be perfect for all our summer highlighters, crayons and tints. If you go—they will be parked at Union Square until 7pm tonight—don't forget to pick up a golden key from the Topshop staffers for your chance to win one of their exclusive in-store prizes. These keys will be available on every stop on their summer tour.
The next stop on their beauty tour will be Washington Square Park starting at noon tomorrow. Personal shoppers will be on hand with trend workshops to ensure girls will be at their full potential of summer hotness. Styling tips and tricks will be given away like candy. Day three will commence at McCarren Park with fun-filled hands-on activities. We can't wait to get our hands dirty for Topshops DIY white tee makeover. The tour will end at the Topshop Soho Flagship on Broadway and Broome Streets, where we hear there will be a beach set-up that you can access with a $50 purchase.—Joann Pan
