From Makeup to Nails, These Are Spring’s Most Important Beauty Trends

At last, spring is on its way. After possibly the longest winter of all time, it’s time to pack away those cosy layers and muted colour palettes and step out into the sunshine. Trust me—things are looking bright. And it’s not just our wardrobes that will be embracing a cheery seasonal shift, either. Though I’m often conflicted about beauty trends—preferring instead a more year-round approach to skincare staples and tried-and-tested products—I’m definitely embracing a more playful approach to makeup and haircare for spring. After all, with brighter days ahead of us all in senses, what better time to step outside your comfort zone and enjoy a little beauty experimentation?Ahead, I’ve spoken to experts in all things makeup, skincare, hair and nails to narrow down the beauty trends that wil...

The £42 Face Mask That Celebs, Our Fashion Friends and Makeup Artists Swear By

There might be plenty of truth in the old adage of not judging a book by its cover but I have to admit that I regularly do: especially when it comes to beauty products. Which is why, when a certain chic-looking face mask started cropping up all over my Instagram feed a few years back I was convinced that I'd love it before I'd even applied it to my face. Even today I'm hard-pressed to scroll through Instagram without spotting a tube of this on a fashion girl's bathroom shelf or peeking out of a makeup artist's backstage kit. So when I heard that celebs like Jessica Alba and Kim KW swear by it too? Well, that was just the icing on the cake. Heck, even a jet-lagged Jeff Goldblum has given this skincare product a whirl: it's that iconic.So, what exactly is the £42 face mask that has been m...

I Spent 30 Minutes with Rosie HW’s Makeup Artist, And This Is What I Learned

When it comes to natural-looking, glowing makeup, there really is only one person I’d go to for tips. You see, Nikki Wolff (aka @nikki_makeup) is the undisputed queen of healthy-looking radiance. All too often, as a beauty journalist, I find myself bamboozled by the tips that makeup artists offer up. As someone that only learned how to apply eyeliner last year (I’m not even joking), I struggle to engage with the Avant Garde looks all over my Insta and TikTok feeds. All I ask is for easy-to-achieve, natural-looking inspo, and that’s why Wolff is my go-to. Her trademark fluffy brows, juicy skin and plumped-up pouts have basically come to define everything we want from our makeup looks as of late. As well as being a Dior Makeup ambassador, she has painted the faces of Joan Smalls, Bella Ha...

7 Low-Effort Makeup Looks I’d Like to Copy and Paste From Instagram

It’s been a long time since I’ve worn makeup (aside from dabbing a little concealer under my eyes for early morning school drop-offs that is). With almost a year spent working and staying home, you would be right to assume that my makeup bag has started gathering cobwebs in the corner of my bathroom. As someone who never used to leave the house without wearing mascara and lipstick, I have rather missed my makeup!While I predominantly turned my focus to skincare in 2020—which is certainly not a bad thing—this year I’m officially ready to liven up my visage with makeup again. Because the reality is a little makeup makes me feel strong, confident, and ready to tackle the day—even if it's just a simple look. In fact, easy, low-effort makeup looks are what I’m all about right now—something t...

New make-up, skincare and hair products you need on your radar

We've tested all the new launches to bring you the best of the best The life of a beauty addict is rarely dull, thanks to dozens of brand new make-up, skincare and hair products launching almost every week. New launches usually come with a lot of hype, but at times it’s hard to tell whether that hype is actually warranted. Nobody likes to splash their hard-earned cash on something they then regret buying. Fortunately for you, the Marie Claire online beauty team gets to test the lot before they hit the shops – from the best mascara to the best eye cream and best moisturisers for dry skin. We’ll be bringing you a break down of the best new releases you should be fighting to get your hands on before they sell out (which trust us, they probably will do). So, what’s good in...
