IMAGE beauty writer HOLLY O'NEILL on what's now and what's next in beauty this June.
Glossier, the antithesis of heavy-duty contouring, is beloved by millennials for its natural aesthetic, affordable price points and minimalist Instagrammable packaging. At last, they’ve started shipping to Ireland from glossier.com, so look out for Boy Brow, Cloud Paint and Stretch Concealer, coming soon to a social media feed near you.
Irish cosmetics company Modern Botany is pioneering natural beauty, with each new product more impressive than the last. Their newest offering? Natural antiperspirant that really works, €25, packaged in recyclable glass packaging.
The new Kérastase Résistance Extentioniste range is training hair to reach new lengths. The collection of lightweight shampoo, conditioner, lengthening mask and scalp serum will send your hair to bootcamp, fill it with nutrients and help it reach its full-length potential while nourishing the scalp and hair from the inside out. It’s perfect for brides looking to strengthen or recover their hair’s condition; if your wedding is six months away, get using now to ensure long, healthy hair in time for the big day.
Your favourite childhood pen has had a make-over. The Clarins 4-Colour All-in-One Pen, €36, includes three creamy eyeliners and a glide-on lipliner.
“Spending a whole life trying to draw a perfect line is quite tedious. Better to pass off the unsteady ones as high style. Go forth and drink coffee.” Terry Barber, MAC’s director of make-up artistry.
If you know her bestselling Tattoo Liner, you’ll know that Kat Von D doesn’t say “budge-proof” lightly. The latest additions to her vegan and cruelty-free collection are all about long-wearing brows. There’s brow brushes for perfect control and blending, a micro-blade-effect pencil- and-spoolie, and a semi- metallic powder that mimics the natural brow’s sheen. The standout is the pomade – available in 16 rainbow shades, including White Out for customising your own shade, and Bleach for bleached brows without damaging the hair. Whether you choose pomade, pencil or powder, your brows are going nowhere. Available now at Debenhams.
