24 Beauty Brand Activations

From Sheet Mask Cafe Popups to Custom Hair Care Labs

— June 28, 2017 — Business
These beauty brand activations range from sheet mask-specific cafes to custom hair care labs that give visitors access to a premium and personalized product range. When looking at memorable makeup and fragrance-themed events, standouts include Benefit Cosmetics' 'GlastonBrow' pop-up -- a brand activation that was modeled after fast food restaurant drive-thrus -- along with Thalys' scent-based travel agency pop-up which spotlighted the brand's signature fragrance collection.

When looking at skincare brand activations, Nordstrom's K-beauty pop-up and the Body Shop's temporary retail space in London are just some notable examples. While Nordstrom's in-store Kiosk introduced North American audiences to popular Korean beauty must-haves, the Body Shop's narrative merchandising informed consumers about the brand's natural ingredients and versatile product range.

Unisex perfume pop-ups, razor blade-swapping retailers, and cinematic beauty activations round off this list and speak to consumers' growing desire for exclusive and monumental shopping experiences.
