Highpoint has created a bespoke and interactive beauty-focused event series to bring its customers a beauty experience that is both special and diverse.

The biggest names in beauty have come together for the launch of inaugural innovation event series, Architects of Beauty. Consisting of 15 different industry-led masterclasses, the program is designed to educate and inspire in the domains of makeup, skincare and fragrance. Architects of Beauty will be held at Melbourne’s Highpoint Shopping Centre from Friday 6 May until Sunday 22 May 2016.

The premiere event of the series will see beauty influencers Jodi Anasta (actress), Nadia Bartel (Highpoint style ambassador), Lindy Klim (Milk & Co. founder) and Erika Geraerts and Jess Hatzis (FRANK Body founders) share their industry insights and tricks of the trade at Behind the Blush, a special evening panel discussion on Friday 6 May.
