TOP 10 BEAUTY DISCOVERIES YOU NEED TO KNOW

Words: Anna Heaton

Looking for some spring-ready beauty inspiration? We’ve picked some of the most exciting new discoveries to hit our Beauty Halls this month – from the soon-to-be-iconic Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton collection to a skin-enhancing foundation from Hermès, new feel-good fragrances to a briliant Project Earth pick and the next-generation supplements.

The MAJOR launch

Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton

Are you palpably excited for the second series of Netflix’s cult period drama, Bridgerton? Well, now you can pair your weekend binge-watch with some beauty looks to match. Pat McGrath Labs has partnered with Netlfix and Shondaland to bring you (an exclusive-to-Selfridges) collection, from luminescent highlighters and decadent eye shadows to punchy-yet-pillowy lipsticks. Whether you’re looking to channel the rose-tinted cheeks of Daphne Bridgerton or the pigmented plum lip of Queen Charlotte, you’ll have those romantic period drama looks sorted.

#Trending

BYOMA

If you’ve spotted its dopamine-inducing packaging on your daily scroll, it’s because Byoma is one of the hottest tickets in beauty right now. Their formulas are all about looking after your skin barrier (this is your skin’s natural armour that protects it from trans-epidermal water loss and environmental effects). The simplified (but over-achieving) formulas are enriched with a patented tri-ceramide complex combining fatty acids and ceramides to protect and nourish all skin types. What’s not to like?

Light, luminous skin

Hermès – Plein Air 

One of our most exciting launches of the month is the hotly anticipated Plein Air collection from Hermès. The hero is a 10-shade Natural Enhancing Complexion Balm, which blurs the lines between make-up and skincare while also featuring a mineral-based SPF. Its light, creamy texture makes for a seamless application and its satin finish leaves skin with an effortless, fresh-faced natural radiance. Follow with their Radiant Matte Powder, which promises to mattify without compromising on glow.

Feel-good fragrance

Jo Malone London – Night Collection

Certain scents go beyond self-care – they have the aromatherapeutic power to alter our mood and emotions. Jo Malone London’s brand-new Night Collection does exactly that, thanks to scents of Lavender, Moonflower and Moonlit Camomile, which are renowned for relaxation. “Whether you’re going out or nestling at home, those are the moments when you can truly start to relax, to escape and to dream,” says Céline Roux, Global Head of Fragrance at Jo Malone London. We couldn’t agree more.

Skincare to try

Kate Somerville

If you’re yet to try Kate Somerville (the eponymous skincare brand from the renowned LA facialist), then you are in for a treat. The entire collection is the result of Somerville’s own expertise, leading dermatologists and cosmetic surgeons, and while it’s tough to choose our favourites, the acclaimed exfoliating treatment and blemish-buster Eradikate, and her comforting Goat’s Milk Moisturizer with antioxidant jojoba and plumping polypeptides, sit in the upper echelons of skincare.

Next-gen supplements

Vida Glow

A new generation of supplements was one of our big beauty predictions for 2022, and thanks to the likes of soon-to-be-cult Vida Glow, the future of ingestible beauty looks undeniably bright (your skin included). Vida Glow’s daily supplements are backed by experts with formulas that promise to firm skin, thicken hair, strengthen nails and supercharge skin radiance – a list of benefits we can all get behind. Each formula provides targeted cellular-level nutrition to the deep dermal layers of the skin, reaching depths that topical product simply can’t. 

Project Earth pick

Paula’s Choice – Skin Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment

We’re all a little guilty of paying more attention to the skin on our face than on our body. So, to get your skin prepped for the warmer weather to come, this Skin-Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment nourishes and gently exfoliates for a more even tone thanks to its rejeuvenating antioxidants. The best bit? Paula’s Choice’s products are backed by science, are entirely cruelty-free and really do work. They’re a bestseller for good reason.

Minimalist make-up

Westman Atelier

If you fall into the beauty camp of make-up minimalism (think: glowing, flushed skin, groomed brows and soft stains of colour), you’re going to love beauty brand Westman Atelier (helmed by American make-up artist, Gucci Westman). Its collection of effortless, hybrid products is packed with skin-loving ingredients, all thoughtfully chosen for their specific benefits. We love the lip suede for its chic colour palette and nourishing, collagen-boosting effects, and the Vital Skin foundation stick gives a dewy, buildable finish that goes on like a charm.

Nature-inspired scents

Byredo – De Los Santos

There’s a reason that every new Byredo fragrance is so hotly anticipated. Consistently offering an innovative take on fragrance, their scents are strongly evocative of the moment in time or setting it represents. Designed to be reminiscent of nature, De Los Santos is no different – an aromatic fragrance balanced with amber, clary sage, ambroxan and fruity notes. Perfect for the freshness we associate with spring, each inhale will transport you to a pine-lined trail through a forest. Heaven.
