Selfridges The Beauty Project 2014
Britain’s favourite department store is in the middle of an epic beauty-focused event that has me tempted to jump a ride to London. Selfridges is taking a look at the business of beauty from a holistic point of view with The Beauty Project, an in-store and online event running until June 12.

A fragrance lab, yoga, manicures, dairy-free delights in the food hall and more are taking place in their London, Birmingham and Manchester stores but the one thing that has me super excited is something we can all enjoy from the comfort of our own home. For this special event a bunch of top beauty brands have created special-edition releases exclusive for The Beauty Project. Thank to the awesome international shipping option at Selfridges, no one has to miss out on these limited edition beauty must-haves. Continue Reading

Next Generation Skincare Classics

There are some beauty products that have such a cult following that the brands have dared not tinker with them for decades. They are the products that are considered “classics”, the staple of a beauty regime for thousands (if not millions) of women. Every beauty brand hopes to have just one of their products rise to such infamy but few rarely do. So why on earth would the lucky handful of brands that do have such a product decide to reformulate it? There is only one answer – technology.

I’ve been taking a look back at some of the beauty worlds most popular products and I’ve seen that in the past 2 years many of the skincare products have been reformulated. The reasoning behind it appears to be the technological advances rippling through the beauty industry. New ingredients, better ways of harvesting and preserving ingredients, the desire for more natural/organic ingredients and of course, plain old science can now tell us more about the human body than it ever has before thus making beauty products have a new requirement to perform and prove their results.

Take a stroll with me as we look at the next generation of some of your favourite cult beauty products.  Continue Reading

WWD (Women’s Wear Daily) is the industry insider in all things fashion and beauty. A few days ago WWD Beauty Inc announced first annual list of the power players who are shaping the beauty business today.
