5 Must-Have Beauty Products For Autumn

Cheek to cheek

Inspired by a California road trip, Chanel’s global creative make-up and colour designer Lucia Pica drew from dawn mists, city skylines, and the gritty noir of downtown LA to create a collection that’s big on texture, films of fierce colour, and delicate suggestion. The hero Palette Essentielle for the face, €60, comes in three options – (from left) Beige Me’dium, Beige Clair, and Beige Intense – to highlight, colour and conceal. Creamy, buildable and beyond divine, this should be high on your winter wish-list.

STATEMENT PIECES

Decisions, decisions… Which of the 70 new Tom Ford lipsticks will we choose as our autumn statement? Opt between 50 Lip Colour Creams, €48 each, or plump for a more velvety finish with one of the 20 Lip Colour Matte bullets, €49 each. All bases are covered with shades from the most subtle nude to eye-popping brights.

SMOOTH OPERATOR

Fans of La Mer (and there are many) can get an invisible hit of their favourite Miracle Broth with the new Moisturizing Matte Lotion, €220. It’s formulated to glide on’skin, leaving no trace or residue, whilst nourishing with the original sea kelp recipe for a glowing, radiant complexion. Handy for winter mornings when every second?counts, this version of the iconic cream leaves the skin’make-up-ready?in a flash.

THE LAST ROSE OF SUMMER

L?Occitane has infused its gentle cleansing oil, €30, with precious peony petals for added luxury and efficacy.

MASTER STROKE

The fragrance world is about to be turned on its head, yet again, by Jo Malone… A woman who continues to innovate with everything she creates. September 4 sees the debut of the Jo Loves Fragrance Paintbrush, €45, one very clever girl-gadget in four of her signature scents. Infused in a gel formula which conveniently boosts the lifespan of top notes, and enables the fragrance to last longer on the skin, this is a paradigm shift in the way we’ll wear perfume. A couple of quick clicks and formula is dispensed through the softest of brushes to literally paint the body with bursts of Pomelo; White Rose & Lemon Leaves; Green Orange & Coriander; or Red Tru e 21. A perfect travel companion.

WELLA WOMAN?Huge congrats to Sharon Sheehan, owner and lead creative at AC Pure Hair in New Ross. She won the IMAGE Award at the recent Wella Trend Vision Irish heats. We’re delighted to have her on board as our new go-to expert, offering tips, trends and how-tos for the next year. She’s a woman with huge experience and an eye for fashion-not-fussy looks, so stand by for plenty of good hair days.
