Discover some of the trends and movements on Mariam’s radar this season and how they’re impacting the beauty world.
No. 1 — Colourful Cosmetics
In the wake of the no-makeup-makeup look, colourful cosmetics are making a comeback. Whether it’s a dramatic-blue smoky eye à la Dua Lipa or a swipe of pastel-purple polish, there’s a fun way for everyone to join the bright side.
GREEN FLASH™ LED NAIL POLISH IN BOIS DE ROSE (15 ML), $28
No. 2 — Celebrating the 1970s
I’ve been obsessed with all things 1970s in home decor and design for some time. (Let’s just hope Jell-O moulds don’t make a comeback!) It’s also the decade that saw the advent of Biologique Recherche’s Lotion P50—the game-changing exfoliator is turning 50 years old.
BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE LOTION P50T (250 ML), $130
No. 3 — Hair Restoration
What was once a hush-hush procedure is becoming increasingly common, with men flying from around the world to Istanbul for discounted hair-transplant procedures. Recovery is lengthy and difficult to conceal—and a good reminder to all to make scalp care a priority—but by all accounts, the results are worth it.
MANTA HEALTHY HAIR BRUSH, $45
No. 4 — The Return of the Blockbuster
Barbenheimer was the talk of the summer, breaking box-office records on opening weekend. Personally, I couldn’t be happier that the big-movie-theatre experience is back, especially when there’s a chance that Tom Cruise himself might randomly pop in. There’s immense value in storytelling—consider film school the new MBA—and this is one medium I love to experience.
No. 5 — Blue Zone Living
Blue Zones are areas of the world where residents live much longer, healthier lives than most. It’s a way of life that’s inspiring research around the world, including the development of the new Biologique Recherche Masque Caviar Vert, which is made with mineral-rich seaweed from the Japanese Blue Zone on Okinawa Island.
BIOLOGIQUE RECHERCHE MASQUE CAVIAR VERT, $54
No. 6 — Below the Neck
The 360-degree approach to skincare and wellness has translated to an increased interest in what’s happening from the neck down. Online searches for body oil are way up, and there are plenty of options to try that offer sensoriality and skin benefits, like firming and smoothing.
OLVERUM FIRMING BODY OIL (100 ML), $98
