Information about us

 1.1 We are FB Beauty Ltd and the Site is operated by us. We are trading as Makeup Academy from the Site. We are registered in England with number 06981955 and our registered office is Third Floor, 49 Carnaby Street, London, W1F 9PY which is also our main trading address. Our VAT registration number is GB976642082.

 1.2 You can contact our Customer Services Team by email at [address] or by telephone at [number] if you have any questions about our Products or orders you have placed with us.

How the contract is formed between you and us

1.3 You may place an order to purchase a Product advertised for sale on the Site by following the onscreen prompts after clicking on the item you are interested in. You will have an opportunity to check and correct any input errors in your order up until the point at which you submit your order by clicking the “Make Payment Now” button on the “Order Summary” page.  

1.4 After placing an order, you will receive an e-mail from us acknowledging that we have received your order and giving an order number and a summary of your order. Please note that this does not mean that your order has been accepted. Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm our acceptance to you by sending you an e-mail that confirms that the Product has been dispatched (Dispatch Confirmation). The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

1.5 The Contract will relate only to those Products listed in the Dispatch Confirmation. We will not be obliged to supply any other Products which may have been part of your order until such Products have been confirmed in a separate Dispatch Confirmation.

1.6 If we are unable to supply you with a Product, we will inform you of this by e-mail and we will not process your order. We might be unable to supply you with a product because that Product is not in stock or is no longer available, there is a problem with authorisation of the payment card you have provided, or because we cannot meet your requested delivery date. If you have already paid for the Product, we will refund you the full amount including any delivery costs charged as soon as possible.

Our Products

1.7 The images of the Products on the Site are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that your computer's display of the colours accurately reflect the colour of the Products. Your Products may vary slightly from those images.

1.8 The packaging of the Products may vary from that shown on images on the Site.


1.9 We will deliver the Products to you in accordance with the delivery option specified by you when you placed your order (e.g. next day or standard delivery). We are unable to track orders sent by royal mail standard (or similar) and it may take more than 30 days for your order to arrive after we send you the Dispatch Confirmation.

1.10 We will deliver all Products comprised in your order in one delivery. We will deliver directly to the delivery address specified in your order. Please see delivery information for details of where we deliver and the available delivery options. We cannot deliver items within the same order to multiple addresses. Deliveries will be made to your door. We are not responsible for any additional carrying or positioning of products ordered.

1.11 If we fail to delivery any Products to you within 30 days from the Dispatch Confirmation then you may cancel your order straight away if any of the following apply:

(a) we have refused to deliver the Products;

(b) delivery within the delivery deadline was essential (taking into account all the relevant circumstances); or

(c) you told us before we accepted your order that delivery within the delivery deadline was essential.

1.12 If you do not wish to cancel your order straight away, or do not have the right to do so under clause 1.11, you can give us a new deadline for delivery, which must be reasonable, and you can cancel your order if we do not meet the new deadline.

1.13 If you do choose to cancel your order for late delivery under clause 1.11 or clause 1.12, you can do so for just some of the Products or all of them, unless splitting them up would significantly reduce their value. If the Products have been delivered to you, you will have to return them to us or allow us to collect them, and we will pay the costs of this. After you cancel your order we will refund any sums you have paid to us for the cancelled Products [and their delivery].  

International Delivery

1.14 We deliver to the countries listed on this page (International Delivery Destinations). However there are restrictions on some Products for certain International Delivery Destinations, so please review the information on that page carefully before ordering Products.

1.15 If you order Products from our site for delivery to one of the International Delivery Destinations, your order may be subject to import duties and taxes which are applied when the delivery reaches that destination. Please note that we have no control over these charges and we cannot predict their amount.  

1.16 You will be responsible for payment of any such import duties and taxes. Please contact your local customs office for further information before placing your order.

1.17 You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations of the country for which the Products are destined. We will not be responsible if you break any such law.

1.18 Once delivered, the Products will become your responsibility and, except in relation to Products that are:

(b) do not conform to the description given on the Site; or

(c) have been incorrectly delivered, we will not be responsible for their loss, damage or destruction after they have been delivered.

1.19 Ownership of the Products will pass to you when:

(a)We have received full payment of all sums due in respect of the Products (including delivery charges); and

(b)the Products have been delivered to you.

Price and Payment

1.20 The price of any Products will be as quoted on the Site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.

1.21 The prices quoted on the Site include VAT but exclude delivery costs, which will be added to the total amount due once you have selected a delivery service from the available options. Our delivery charges are as advised to you during the check-out process, before you confirm your order. To check relevant delivery charges, please refer to our "Shipping, Delivery and Returns" page.

1.22 Prices might change at any time, but changes will not affect your order if we have already sent you a Dispatch Confirmation, unless the rate of VAT changes between the date we send you the Dispatch Notification and the date the Products are delivered to you. If the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.

1.23 Payment can be made by most major credit or debit cards, by completing the relevant details within the “Billing Information” section of the "Check Out" page.

1.24 By using a credit/debit card to pay for your order, you confirm that the payment card being used is yours. All payment card holders are subject to validation checks and authorisation by the card issuer. If your card issuer refuses to authorise payment we will not accept your order and we will not be responsible to you for any delay or non-delivery of the Products. If your payment card is refused by the card issuer, we are not obliged to inform you of the reason for the refusal. We are not responsible to you if your card issuer or bank charges you as a result of us processing of your payment card in accordance with your order.

1.25 The Site contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that some of the Products listed on the Site may be incorrectly priced. We will rectify pricing errors as soon as possible after we become aware of them. If a Product´s correct price is different from the price stated on the Site, we will normally, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or reject your order and notify you.

1.26 The website may offer 'Web Exclusive Prices' on selected products which will be cheaper than store prices.

Our cancellation, returns and refund policy

1.27 If you are a consumer, you have a legal right to cancel your contract with us from the date we send you the Dispatch Confirmation until 14 days after the day on which you receive your Products.

You will lose your legal right to cancel your contract with us if you use the Products.

1.28 To cancel a contract between us, you just need to let us know that you have decided to cancel. The easiest way to do this is to complete the cancellation form on our website.

Alternatively, you can email us at or write to us at 49 Carnaby Street, London, W1F 9PY.

Please note that we are permitted by law to reduce your refund to reflect any reduction in value of the Products, if this has been caused by your handling them in a way that would not be permitted in a shop.  

1.30 After you cancel your order and return the Products, any sum collected by us from your payment card will be refunded in full, including the costs of delivery (except for the supplementary costs arising if you choose a type of delivery other than the least expensive type of standard delivery offered by us).

We will refund any money received from you using the same method originally used by you to pay for your purchase, unless you specifically request otherwise. Refunds for Products purchased as gifts can only be given to a payment card in the name of the person who placed the order.
