Our Senior Beauty Buyer, Tracy Van Heusden, shares her must-have beauty products.  With over 15 year’s industry experience, Tracy is well versed in separating the beauty fab from the beauty fad!

Tracy brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to House of Fraser from her time on the shop floor via Duty Free to the buying office. Growing up in South Africa her love of beauty grew whilst working in the beauty department of the well-known South Africa retailer Garlicks, during which time she helped launch Givenchy to the South African market. An eclectic beauty consumer herself, Tracy uses products from a diverse mix of brands such as Laura Mercier, La Prairie and Giorgio Armani Cosmetics alongside more luxury niche products such as Tom Ford Private Blends.
