One does not visit the city of Amsterdam and not at least stroll through luxury brands department store de Bijenkorf. And that is exactly what I did when I visited the Amsterdam a week ago. First taking a look at the all the lovely bags from Balenciaga, Mulberry and Hermès then to Christmas decoration department. Walking through the store I noticed that de Bijenkorf had events going on at the cosmetics department called Art Of Beauty. The purpose of the event was to celebrate the wonderful feeling a new perfume, lipstick or cream can give you. The events are all associated with de Bijenkorf Amsterdam opening their newly renovated cosmetics department in November, which is said will be largest in The Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg.
During the Art of Beauty, de Bijenkorf had various workshops and in-store events showing what cosmetics can do for you. The weekend when I went, customers got the opportunity to get what de Beijenkorf called the “Coverlook” of the Art of Beauty. For the cover look, a M.A.C make-up artist would give you a touch-up after which you would be able to have your picture taken and shared on their social media page.
Do you also like (window) shopping at De Bijenkorf Amsterdam? What is the one place you always visit when you are in Amsterdam?
