Beauty editor SARAH HALLIWELL rounds up the NAMES WORTH LEARNING this season …
MAN RAY, the American visual artist, becomes a name to know in beauty this month as his images are celebrated in this eye-catching Nars collaboration. The gold case with four Velvet Matte Lip Pencils (€57) is calling our name …
New into Space NK is RMS Beauty, founded by make-up artist Rose-Marie Swift. A dedicated advocate of non-toxic beauty, Swift has created modern classics without the nasties, such as metallic Eye Polishes with mineral pigments. Grafton Street, Dublin 2.
It’s not a mainstream name in Ireland, but French skincare line PHYT’s has been a stalwart of natural and organic beauty since the 1970s, with a lasting dedication to chemical-free beauty. We love this zinc oxide-based SPF (€39), while the cleansing range is gentle and excellent; all ideal for sensitive skin. Find it at Virginie Claire, Harold’s Cross; we highly recommend Virginie’s facials using Phyt’s, too. www.vclaire.ie.
Skincare expert Romilly Wilde’s first scent, Idle, is addictive, with woods, green mandarin and bergamot, jasmine and juniper: it softens to a bright jasmine that’s green rather than sweet or heavy. Something a bit rare and alluring for autumn. £90stg. www.romillywilde.com.
THIS MONTH WE’RE WEARING…
The irresistibly bold Tatouage Couture Lip Stains by YSL (€35.50) – our pick is hot red Rouge Tatouage; KISS NY Fine Precision Brow Pencil (€11.99) is cheap and cheerful for subtle fill-ins.
