Inside the new-look Beauty Hall at Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2, bigger and better than ever!

The Beauty Hall at The Loop has always been a game changer for travelling. Now that it’s double in size following a massive redevelopment, not only can you get over 90 premium brands for less, but 30 of them are brand new to Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2. Buckle up for an inside look into your new favourite beauty destination, which officially launched last weekend.

The words ‘one zip-lock clear plastic bag’ and ‘100ml liquids only’ are ingrained in the heads of frequent flyers. Let’s face it, it’s near impossible to cram all of your holiday essentials into one tiny space, and no one wants to sacrifice a concealer for a highlighter!

But fear no more, as the Beauty Hall in Dublin Airport’s Terminal 2 is now double in size, and with at least 15% off beauty essentials, and up to 40% off selected fragrances, it’s now easier than ever to stock up on your must-have items – for less!

At its official launch on Friday, October 25, travellers were treated to exclusive offers across fragrance and beauty, in-store entertainment by DJ Mo Kelly, and some real-life painting courtesy of MAC, whose artists painted a male model live at the Beauty Hall.

And if you’re planning on stocking up for a winter getaway, there’s no need to add another piece of luggage to your haul. With the convenient Click & Collect and Shop & Collect services, you can choose to collect your purchases on your return journey. For more information on Click & Collect and Shop & Collect, see below.

Here are some of our favourite travel-friendly make-up items, available at the Beauty Hall at The Loop now.

Vita Liberata Ultimate Travel Collection, €20.50

Irish people aren’t blessed when it comes to naturally sun-kissed complexions, so self-tan on a beach holiday is a necessary travel buddy. This Vita Liberata Travel Set is the perfect way to make sure your tan stays topped up and fabulous while you’re away. It includes a pack of two pHenomenal Organic Tan Infused Cloths, a carry-on friendly 50ml Self Tanning Gradual Lotion, 50ml Body Blur shade Latte and a 3g Minerals shade Bronze.

Lancome Idole Eau de Parfum 50ml, €57.50

This ultra-slim bottle not only radiates light, it’s the perfect size for travelling. And who doesn’t want to smell like roses and jasmine? The Beauty Hall now has exclusive fragrances, see here, as well as up to 40% off selected fragrances.

Clinique All About Moisture Update, €35

This set is a travel exclusive to the Beauty Hall at The Loop. It’s the perfect combination for dry skin – air travel depletes skin of moisture resulting in tired-looking skin. Clinique’s Moisture Surge replenishes skin to moisturise and hydrate, working non-stop for 72 hours. Ideal for a long-haul flight, and it fits in your carry-on. For more travel exclusives, see here.

NARS 2019 Cult Classics Set Travel Exclusive, €65

NARS is just one of 30 new luxury brands to the Beauty Hall, meaning all of your favourite beauty brands are now under one roof, with at least 15% off. This travel set has all the essentials you’ll need for a weekend getaway, and will definitely get you through security in a flash with its travel-friendly sizes.

Jo Malone Travel Candle Variety Collection, €65

Your favourite cult products, like Jo Malone, are still available in the new-look Beauty Hall. This trio of miniature candles – exclusive to the Beauty Hall – ensure that you have a luxury fragrance wherever you go. Blackberry & Bay will bring childhood memories of blackberry picking. English Pear and Freesia has a golden and mellow bouquet, and Lime Basil & Mandarin is the Jo Malone signature citrus. A beautiful addition to your luggage, or a glam gift that you can pick up at the airport on your return flight, using the Click & Collect and Shop & Collect services.
