•The Beauty Edit Inspired By...Red•
We’re sure you already know that the official colour of of Autumn/Winter 2017 is red – hard to miss when it has been broadcasted everywhere across the fashion sphere. We also know that you’re already well-versed in the reds that suit your lips, and have stocked up on more than enough to last you through the grey British winter.
However, what you may not know is that one trend followers’s love for red simply cannot end there. There are still so many bases to be covered. Just think – body oils! Cream blushers! Hair dye! The possibilities are endless, and trust us, we know: we’ve all but spent the past week trawling the internet for anything rouge and beauty, in hopes of satiating our
blood redlust. Read on for the best of our findings (and some Christmas gift inspiration)…
Lola’s Apothecary Body & Massage Oil in Delicate Romance
‘Tis the season to start caring more for our bodies, as temperatures drop and freezing winds bring winter to our doorstep. Indoors, radiators are wreaking havoc as they dry the air around us and draw moisture out of our skin. Body oils pose the perfect answer to this, as oils are extremely hydrating and help strengthen the skin’s natural lipid barrier. Lola’s Apothecary is a firm favourite amongst beauty editors, so we couldn’t help but throw this in just for its rosehip-based body oil.
£38, available at lolasapothecary.com.
Kjaer Weis Lipstick À Deux
The perfect gift for any lipstick lover. Kjaer Weis presents a staple duo: The Red and The Nude. Since we’re in love with rouges right now, the star of the show here is KW Red – a classic sports-car crimson. But if it insists the company of a delicious shade like Brilliant (nude with a hint of peach), we’d be more than happy to oblige…
£72, available at contentbeauty.com.
The Konjac Sponge Co. Mini Pore Refiner in French Red Clay
Drier weather means drier skin – and build-up of that could easily lead to dullness and flaky skin. I’m sure that, like us, you’d much rather keep that at bay. Konjac Sponge Co’s pore refiners are an effective and eco-friendly choice for the job, made of 100% vegetable fibres and super soft on the skin. They’ve just released an adorable Rudolph edition too (potential stocking filler, perhaps?).
£6.99, available at konjacspongecompany.com – and use code cleanbeauty to get an extra 10% off! Expires 15.11.17.
Lush Henna in Caca Rouge
Did you know that henna is not only great for body art, but for dyeing hair too? Lush’s Caca Rouge is your ticket to those gorgeous Sansa Stark locks we all love. Autumn 2017 is no better time to flaunt your inner redhead, especially when everyone else is doing it too!
£10.95, available at lush.com.
Butter London Patent Shine 10x Nail Lacquer in Her Majesty’s Red
Of course, the festive season wouldn’t be complete without a gorgeous manicure to match our new party dresses. Her Majesty’s Red is a shade that speaks for itself – a deep, blood red that is the ideal complement to cool-toned skin, and a staple that will keep you looking regal from autumn to winter and beyond.
£18, available at feelunique.com.
