New beauty trend: customised beauty products
At a time when purchasing make-up and skincare products is as simple as a click of the mouse and the options are endless, it’s strange to think that things could get any easier – or any more convenient.
The fact is, a new trend is upon us, and while customised beauty is still fairly new to the scene, the very concept is enough to convince anyone that it’s going to be huge. Some brands have already jumped on board this trend, offering tailor-made, customised solutions for treating hair and skin – and even creating the perfect make-up palette. Check out how you can customise your beauty kit…
The problem when buying most make-up palettes is there’s always one or two colours that you know you’ll never use. Seems like a bit of a waste, eh? Well, the brains at Bobbi Brown now offer customisable mirrored pan palettes that you can fill with your favourite Bobbi Brown eyeshadows and blushes. Choose a 3, 4 or 6-pan palette, then select shadows from the range of shimmer, sparkle, metallic or matte shades – and don’t forget a blush or two!
Concoction Couture Haircare
When shopping for haircare products, it’s so hard to choose between the nourishing shampoo and conditioner, the colour protection range and the serum that promises to smooth your strands – I’m a girl, I want it all! Concoction Haircare is a range of shampoos that can be customised with ‘SuperSerum shots’ to suit your hair type and concerns. Simply start by choosing your fabulously fragrant Base-Blend (Lemon Verbena, Bakhour, Rosemary & Mint or Black Pepper Citrus) and then add two ‘SuperSerum Shots’ (Back to your Roots, Beautiful Brunette, Curl Me Up, Gimme More Moisture, High Definition Blonde, Ravishing Red, Thermo-Straight and Turn up the Volume). Then, mix to create your tailored ShampYou®! Your customised shampoo also comes complete with a nourishing Crème de Concoction Conditioner enriched with natural essential oils of Orange, Patchouli and Lemongrass.
Concoction Couture Haircare (230ml Base-Blend + 2 x 10ml SuperSerums, $29.95, Crème de Concoction Conditioner, $32.95) can be purchased at www.concoctionaustralia.com.au. Also available through David Jones and selected salons nationally.
