IMAGE beauty writer HOLLY O’NEILL on the must-haves landing on the beauty desk this April. 

GOING NUDE

Beauty trends come and go, but radiant, healthy skin will forever be in style. Chanel has reinvented the nude complexion with the ultra-fine Les Beiges Collection: a silky tinted moisturiser with SPF 30, a natural eyeshadow palette of matte and satin shades, warm multi-colour powders,a colour stick for a blush that looks like you spent a day in the sunshine, and three shades of sheer lip balm infused with emollient oils. The collection is perfect for those seeking a light, luminous finish. Launching April 27.

Elizabeth Arden March On Beautiful Colour Lipstick in Red Door, €26

LIPSTICK AND LIBERTY

Red is undoubtedly a bold, timeless and never-boring colour, but did you know that red lipstick was once a symbol of the women’s movement? In 1912, Elizabeth Arden marched down New York’s 5th Avenue for equality, handing out red lipstick to suffragettes as a symbol of solidarity. As we still fight for equality more than 100 years later, Elizabeth Arden is back in solidarity with women with a limited edition lipstick in the brand’s signature Red Door shade and signed by Reese Witherspoon, with 100 per cent of the proceeds donated to UN Women. The March On Beautiful Color Lipstick in Red Door is available now for €26.

SLEEPING BEAUTY 

Wake up fresh-faced with these new targeted formulas…

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, €85

Murad Retinol Youth Renewal Night Cream, €85, prevents future signs of ageing, minimising fine lines and improving skin texture with fast-acting, time-released retinol.

SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight, €85.

Refresh the skin with this overnight treatment, a true 10% glycolic acid that promotes cell turnover and reveals a radiant skin tone and texture. Use once every second night for the first week and build up to every night. And don’t forget to use SPF!

Dermalogica Sound Sleep Cocoon Gel-Cream, €86.50

This product works with the skin’s repair and recovery process to reduce skin fatigue and releases encapsulated essential oils to lull you into a deeper sleep.

STAR TREATMENT  

The five-star Spa at Muckross Park Hotel, Killarney has introduced The Organic Pharmacy, the certified organic luxury health and beauty brand beloved by Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker and Gwyneth Paltrow. We love the Rose Crystal Lymphatic Facial, a skin solutions facial customised for specific concerns from acne to psoriasis, and the Vitamin C and Papaya Enzyme Peel for resurfacing the skin.

Tom Ford Fucking Fabulous, €245 for 50ml

BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

The scent Tom Ford decided could only be described one way was an instant sell-out and Instagram hit, but there’s nothing light or summery about the notorious addition to his cult beauty line. It’s leathery, heady and spicy with key notes of vanilla, clary sage and bitter almond, but it doesn’t matter, does it? The fragrance you haven’t smelled but want to own is back in stock. Fucking Fabulous, €245 for 50ml, is just that, and is available now in Brown Thomas.
