Barry M’s 35th Birthday

Some of the biggest names in the make-up business gathered at OXO2 for a star-studded event, hosted by make-up brand Barry M.

The night celebrated the 35th birthday of the brand, with a night of delicious food, plenty of pampering and cocktails made by expert mixologists. Entertainment was provided by DJ’s Maya Jama, girlfriend of grime and hip-hop artist Stormzy, and Leah Weller, daughter of Paul Weller.

Theming was provided by Collective Two. The team took full advantage of this unique blank canvas event space on the South Bank, adding stunning floral theming throughout. As they explored the space, guests discovered Barry M products hidden in the décor.

Guests enjoyed a selection of bowl food dishes served by award-winning caterer Create, including pressed lamb, evergreen, artichoke puree, bean blossom and sheep’s sorrel, as well as citrus cured salmon, wild asparagus, oak smoked crème fraiche and fingerlings.

Vegetarian dishes included clay-baked heritage beetroot, frozen goats curd, olive soil, rock samphire and summer vegetables with flowers, aerated truffle, elderflower and lotus root. For dessert, attendees tucked into miniature dessert canapés of meringue mushrooms, black forest roulade, pistachio moss cake and chocolate butterflies.
