Running this Saturday and Sunday, the city-wide Made Up Leeds festival aims to showcase some of the biggest names in beauty and feature dozens of offers from cosmetic shops, restaurants and bars.
Former Made in Chelsea star Georgia 'Toff' Toffolo and ex-Love Island contestants Kaz Crossley and Alexandra Cane were among those already confirmed for appearances during the free event.
Now organisers have revealed that male beauty vlogger Lewys Ball, drag queen star Michael ‘Gisele’ Allan and celebrity hairdresser Andrew Barton will also be attending.
They will join E4’s Body Fixers star Danny Richo and mother-daughter make-up artists and Instagram sensations Shaheen Kauser and Sanna Nosheen – known as Mummillion and Lookamillion.
The festival, backed by LeedsBID, will also see involvement from Leeds' retail sector, including John Lewis, Debenhams, Trinity Leeds, The Merrion Centre, St Johns Centre, Harvey Nichols and The Light.
Andrew Cooper, chief executive at LeedsBID, said: “Made Up Leeds aims to celebrate beauty for all and we’re incredibly proud of the diverse line-up for the first ever event.
“It’s fantastic to see such big-name brands and retailers join forces to create something really special for the city, and we’re expecting thousands of people to head to Leeds for the jam-packed event.”
