Rihanna has basically reinvented the highlighter, lifting it (with Fenty Beauty’s high-impact Killawatt Duos) from gentle glow to the final, crucial step in one’s big, bold beauty routine.

Chanel are launching a 3D-printed mascara brush, Le Volume Revolution. Micro-cavities in the brush allow the mascara to be built up without having to re-dip between applications – and each bristle has been printed in millimetre-scale. This is the future.
Asos.com have launched Crayola beauty, for those of us with a need to colour over the lines. There are 95 shades of Face Crayon and 58 different products, each one vegan, for eyes, cheeks and lips. Prices start at £9.
This summer, the 90s are back, and visible all over your (Glossier) lip-glossed, (MAC) glitter-eyed face. Balenciaga hailed the return of the scrunchie. And for those who want to take it further, Sun Of A Beach Ombré Spray by Ouai is a nourishing version of our old favourite, Sun In.
