Saks’s beauty celebration, Cirque de Beaute, is taking place today on the Fifth Avenue flagship’s main floor through this evening. It’s a pretty major event with a lot of stuff going on, so here’s the TL;DR:
For starters, this is an actual rendition of the circus with performances throughout the day, and a live performance from Cirque du Soleil’s Paramour musical going down at 7 p.m.
There will also be dozens of makeup artists hanging around, armed with loads of products from Bobbi Brown, Estée Lauder, Chanel, Dior, Dolce & Gabbana, and pretty much every other brand carried at Saks.
On top of that, you can preview new and upcoming summer beauty collections, including MAC’s Fashion Pack and Tom Ford’s Orchid Soleil fragrance. Plus, services — like La Prairie and Burberry Beauty facials — will also be on deck. Here’s the entire rundown of what you can expect.
