Looking for some spring-ready beauty inspiration? Selfridges beauty experts have picked some of the most exciting new discoveries to hit luxury department store’s Beauty Halls this month.
The MAJOR launch at Selfridges Beauty: Pat McGrath Labs x Bridgerton
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 in beauty Spring/ Summer 2022: BYOMA
Byoma’s 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 formulas are enriched with a patented tri-ceramide complex combining fatty acids and ceramides to protect and nourish all skin types.
Light, luminous skin with 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.
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. 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.
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.
Selfridges Project Earth pick: Paula’s Choice Skin Smoothing Retinol Body Treatment
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, says Selfridges.
Westman Atelier is 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.
