The Best All-American Beauty

Julianne Moore - American Beauty

Awards season is now in full swing, and with eyes firmly trained on the US of A, we felt it was high time to celebrate all things American. Home to some of the world’s most dazzling women – as well as some of the most scientifically advanced cosmetics (and cosmetic procedures), Americans expect the very best, and as such – the States are creating some cutting-edge skin care, hair and make up.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour KitFrom Beverly Hills, we have the likes of Anastasia Soare – architect turned brow technician – who’s personally responsible for Kim Kardashian’s flawless arches, and whose {Brow Wiz} is a firm favourite of Brow Queen Delevingne. Her {DipBrow Pomade} is phenomenal – the perfect wax/mousse hybrid, that tints and sculpts and holds with just one easy sweep – and her latest sensation, the {Pro Series Contour Kit} enables you to cheat your way to cut-glass cheekbones.


Kevyn Aucoin The Creamy GlowThis week sees us celebrate our Kevyn Aucoin anniversary – it’s two years since we launched this stunning colour range, and we’ve all developed an addiction to the buttery {The Sculpting Powder}, sensational {The Curling Mascara} and beautiful, colour-pop {The Creamy Glow} blush. The legacy of make up artist legend, this is colour for sophisticates – chic, sleek and stunning in its simplicity


Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme MaskClinical skin care brand Peter Thomas Roth takes its turn in the spotlight. Providing potent, skin-transformative solutions for all of the common complexion concerns – from fine lines to acne (and everything in between) – we’re launching beauty guru Anna Gardner’s (Vivianna Does Makeup) favourite face mask, and might just have a little sumthin’ sumthin’ more in store. Watch this space…


And this is just the tip of the iceberg. We’ll be bringing you new products from your favourite US names; {Jouer Cosmetics}, {Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare} and {David Kirsch} to name a few – as well as brand new brands that are causing a veritable storm across the pond. Subscribe to our newsletter, and visit the blog daily, to make sure you don’t miss a trick (or a treat)!
