Kate Moss in a can and Disco Tan: July’s best in beauty

IMAGE beauty writer HOLLY O’NEILL on what’s now and what’s next in beauty this July. 

SWEET NEWS

Introducing MAC’s new dessert-flavoured lipgloss collection, Oh Sweetie, €19.50 each. With flavours like Banana Muffins, Strawberry Mousse and Sugar Cookies, they’re (almost) good enough to eat.

PLAY IT COOL

The hair range from Sam McKnight – the man behind that Princess Diana crop and 200 Vogue covers – has hit Brown Thomas. If you only buy one thing, make it Cool Girl, €29, described by him as “Kate Moss in a can”. Need we say more?

Kate Moss’ hair is undone but done, cool girl hair, with a barely there light wave. It’s an easy, effortless style that anyone can create and this gives hair that rock n’ roll, mussed-up texture.”- Sam McKnight

HEAVEN SCENT

Le Vestiaire des Parfums are unisex fragrances that interpret centrepieces of the Yves Saint Laurent wardrobe with dedications to the house’s signature clothing, like Trench, Tuxedo and Leather. The latest nod is to an iconic piece that has defined the house’s history, Blouse – the sheer blouse that scandalised the 1960s. So what does a fragrant composition of the blouse smell like? It’s floral with sensual damask rose bud, pink peppercorn, fresh citrus and powdery white musk. In short, it smells how you would imagine a Saint Laurent blouse looks: silky, timeless, elegant and sexy. Le Vestiaire des Parfums Blouse, €215 for 125ml, is available exclusively at Brown Thomas.

PACK IT IN

Instagrammable packaging, body positive campaign imagery, organic and vegan – Isle of Paradise is truly the millennial of tan. Going on holiday? Pack a bottle of Disco Tan, €19.99, for an instant glow with added shimmer.

HAIR THERAPY

Alfaparf Milano is the first haircare brand to launch a range to protect hair against pollution. With a new three-step in-salon treatment, the first of which is a Detoxifying Mud Treatment, hair is cleansed with purifying kaolin clay and activated carbon. As Ronan Markey, MD at Sebastian Marks puts it, “Pollution gets under the cuticle and raises it, causing yellowing, dullness and damaged hair. The mud is like a sponge, absorbing impurities and toxic substances from the hair.” The Semi di Lino Detoxifying Mud Treatment is available in Alfaparf Milano salons from €25.

CREATE YOUR OWN

CYO products are versatile, multi-tasking heroes that can be mixed and layered for fun, creative experimentation, from the double-ended Two Clever By Half lipstick and liner duo, €7, to the All Eyes & Cheeks cream shadow and blush combo, €6. Bonus: everything is under €9.50. Available exclusively from Boots.

How to recreate the glossy, lived-in hair at Victoria Beckham AW21

“The hair look really was inspired by the early 90s,” says Victoria Beckham. “I like the idea of quite heavy hair, heavy fringes, that hair that looks like it’s been slept in a little bit, with a little bit of a bend in it.” Here’s how to recreate the lived-in luxe look from her AW21 show.
