THERE’S A HORTICULURAL AIR BLOWING THROUGH THE NEW SEASON MAKE-UP COLLECTIONS, which will be instore next month. Having created Roselip, the first solid lip colour, back in 1918, Guerlain now brings us KissKiss Roselip Tinted Lip Balm, which is packed with hydrating goodness thanks to the presence of rose oil (in six shades, £26.50, 01932 233887 from 3 August). Meanwhile, the moss green and pine-cone brown in Chanel Les 4 Ombres palette in Tissé d’Automne, (below) £40, were inspired by a woodland glade, and the Joues Contraste Blush in Alezane (below, £31, 020 7493 3836 from 14 August) delivers a country-walk-fresh definition to cheekbones.
Give your tips a dip with YSL’s La Laque Couture Pop Water ‘wet look’ varnish. Wear alone for a subtle wash of colour or flash it over a pale shade and it’ll add a hit of neon. £19, yslbeauty.co.uk (below).
Get your hair back on track this Tuesday as styling tool brand Ego Professional celebrates National Blow-dry Day with free spruce-ups at its pop-up blow-dry bar at London’s Waterloo Station. Proceeds from the sale of limited-edition versions of the Ego Trip mini dryer and straightening iron set (from £47.95, both below) will go towards its promise to donate more than £52,500 to Macmillan Cancer Support. egoprofessional.com.
