On the cusp of warmer weather and brighter days ahead, Selfridges senior beauty editor guides you through the most exciting Spring Summer 2023 launches and trending products you need to know.
The Glow getter title goes to Hermès Plein Air H Trip Iridescent mineral powder
The gorgeous (and refillable) packaging houses lightweight powders embossed with the luxury brand’s iconic ‘H’ logo. Swirl your brush and apply wherever you’d like a natural-looking glow.
Supercharge your skin with Westman Atelier Skin Activator serum
Renowned make-up artist Gucci Westman is known for creating juicy, radiant skin. And after five years in the making, her first foray into skincare has arrived. Skin Activator is an all-in-one serum packed with 12 active ingredients to supercharge your skin – from hyaluronic acid to peptides, antioxidants and niacinamide. Together, they strengthen the moisture barrier, plump the skin and protect from future damage.
The make-up for the big day: Jenny Packham x Bobbi Brown collection
Bobbi Brown’s latest collection with Jenny Packham is a curated edit of bridal favourites housed in limited-edition Art Deco packaging. You’ll find the Extra Lip Tint (a pink balm that’s always in my handbag), Highlight Powder in Blondie Pink and the perfect nude eyeshadow palette for the big day (and beyond).
The multi-use palette: Gucci Palette De Beauté Quatuor
Gucci Palette De Beauté Quatuor includes three powders and a cream formula, which are designed to be used on eyes, cheeks and lips to encourage layering colours and textures.
Bespoke skincare with Kiehl’s Ultra Pure High-Potency Serums
These three exclusive-to-Selfridges Ultra Pure High-Potency Serums from Kiehl’s champion that less-is-more idea. Each one is dedicated to delivering potent levels of a wonder ingredient: hyaluronic acid to moisturise and plump, glycolic acid to smooth texture, and niacinamide to minimise oil and blemishes. Add one (or two) to your routine for a supercharged hit of whatever your skin needs.
NARS The Orgasm limited-edition collection is back
Perfectly timed for the sunnier months, NARS has launched a collection inspired by its iconic Orgasm shade (the OG viral blush) in summery peach-pink tones. The limited-edition collection includes a radiant blush quad and a multiple-cream blush stick. It has a range of sunset pinks, golden shimmers and a matte brown to create all kinds of sultry, smoky eyes.
#Trending: Charlotte Tilbury Matte Beauty Blush Wand liquid blush
“Spend a minute scrolling through TikTok, and Charlotte Tilbury’s viral Beauty Blush Wands will make an appearance. I find the original blush wands a little too shimmery for every day, so this subtler, more matte finish is right up my street. The water-light texture blends into the skin in seconds with a brush or fingers if you’re on the go.” says
Just what the doctor ordered: Dr. Barbara Sturm, Microbiotic collection
This new Microbiotic range from Dr. Barbara Sturm is Selfridges senior beauty editor’s latest skincare obsession. Designed to balance acne-prone teenage skin, the simplified routine treats the skin but, crucially, doesn’t strip or disrupt the skin barrier.
The exclusive preview: Dior Summer Look 2023 collection
Inspired by the blue skies and golden hues of the French Riviera, this year’s Summer 2023 collection from Dior is, as expected, très chic. Launching exclusively at Selfridges, expect two new limited-edition colourways of their popular eyeshadow quads, a new shade of the viral Lip Glow Oil and the Dior Forever Natural Bronze that comes in raffia-inspired fabric packaging.
Refined brows with REFY Brow Tint Gel
REFY is to brows what Burberry is to trench coats. Brow Sculpt regularly flies off luxury department shelves, so anticipation was high for the arrival of the Brow Tint. The round applicator coats and defines each hair to enhance your natural brows and holds them in place.
