Unboxing: YSL Summer Beauty Look 2019 | Clozette


Planning your beauty essentials for a holiday is just as important as planning your wardrobe. Putting on the perfect outfit can improve how you acclimate to new surroundings while putting on the perfect look can drastically improve your mood. A simple switch of the eye shadow or a new fragrance can take your vibe from everyday to vacay in just under a minute. 


YSL Beauté’s Summer Beauty 2019 tastefully packs the escapism and exoticism of Marrakech into a convenient, pocket-sized form. Inspired by the city's vibrant lifestyle, the hues play with bold shades and rich neutrals that you can dial up or down depending on your preference. The Couture Eye Palette Summer Look 2019 brings to mind verdant gardens and tropical blooms serving as oases from the scorching sun. Meanwhile the Mon Paris Face Palette lights up your complexion with the glow of a promising romance. Cap it all off with a spritz of the Mon Paris Parfum Floral with notes of fresh pear, peonies, and white musk for the sweetest escape.

Summer bears many scents, especially in the tropics when seasonal fruits and flowers are in bloom. Sometimes, though, the sweating brought about by excessive heat can also cause an unpleasant odour. Which is why aside from a good deodorant/antiperspirant, a good fragrance is a must to keep you smelling fresh this season. Here are some of the Community's picks for their summer scent.

Net-A-Porter Beauty has established itself as a luxe beauty destination for the discerning woman. Their curations are an eclectic mix of cult favourites, classics, and up-and-coming brands in the industry. Every year, we look forward to learning about the new names and products to take note of when it comes to updating our skincare arsenal. This year is no exception and we were met with plenty of promising labels offering solutions to our concerns. Here, we’ve rounded up the Net-A-Porter Beauty trends this season and the brands to know now.


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #1: Female-Driven Beauty


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trends

Mimi Luzon 24K Pure Gold Treatment, SGD291.48/~USD212; Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste, SGD39.92/~USD29; KNC Beauty All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask, SGD43.72/~USD32 for a pack of 10


We support a strong, independent woman, and here are three who are carving a name for themselves in the beauty industry. Mimi Luzon is the go-to aesthetician for some of the modelling world’s familiar faces such as Jessica Hart, Elsa Hosk, and Irina Shayk. Her 24K Pure Gold Treatment mask is the secret to the models’ glow and who wouldn’t want to look like them?


Meanwhile, Lixirskin was founded by French doctor Colette Haydon, who has 20 years of experience in the industry. Her Vitamin C Paste is a hit in Asia, packing the powerful L-Ascorbic Acid into a formula more potent than most vitamin C-derived products in the market.


Finally, KNC Beauty is the brainchild of Kirsten Noel Crawley. Smitten by lip masks on a Tokyo trip, she decided to create a “cleaner” option using natural collagen. Her All Natural Collagen Infused Lip Mask is an Instagram hit.


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #2: Power Masking

Aside from the usual potent serums and active-rich creams, masks are gaining mass appeal for their quick treatment approach. This Net-A-Porter Beauty trend isn’t just limited to the face, as more masks have been created to suit different body areas. Dr. Barbara Sturm’s Deep Hydrating Face Mask promotes cell renewal through its active ingredient, Purslane. Meanwhile, Sarah Chapman’s Chin and Jaw Masks firm the skin for that defined and sculpted jawline. Finally, Wander Beauty’s Baggage Claim Rose Gold Eye Masks are a luxe option for soothing and brightening tired under-eyes.


Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #3: Wholesome Health & Wellness

Angela Caglia La Vie En Rose Face Roller, SGD63/~USD46; Dr. Nigma Talib Hydrating and Plumping Serum No. 1, SGD153.98/~USD111.95; WelleCo The Super Elixir with Caddy, SGD166.65/~USD121


Health, happiness, and glow are the keywords of this season’s Net-A-Porter Beauty trends. There’s a growing focus among women on looking healthier as opposed to simply looking younger. Crystal-based products like Angela Caglia’s La Vie En Rose Face Roller are a hit for their healing properties. Naturopath expert Dr. Nigma’s Hydrating and Plumping Serum No. 1, meanwhile, is praised for its elasticity-improving qualities using plant stem cells and marine peptides. Finally, WelleCo’s The Super Elixir with Caddy is supermodel Elle Macpherson’s secret to vibrant skin and peak energy levels, calling it “an investment but cheaper than a good face cream." We’re sold.



Net-A-Porter Beauty Trend #4: Clean, Considered Beauty

Riding the wave of ethical conscientiousness, consumers are now demanding cleaner options for their skincare and Net-A-Porter Beauty is happy to deliver.

Their Ultra Marine Cellulite Night Cream makes use of sustainably sourced marine ingredients to combat cellulite. Lastly, Kjaer Weis is the go-to for gluten-free cosmetics made from natural and organic ingredients. Their Cream Blush gives the skin an instant youthful glow with minimal effort.

Net-A-Porter’s beauty trends this year also cover haircare. Scalp scrubs, serums, and masks are only some of the ways brands have updated their commitment to healthy, beautiful hair. Favourites include superstar hairdresser Oribe’s Supershine Moisturising Cream, which acts as a frizz-fighting moisturiser for thirsty hair. Celebrity hairstylist to Gigi Hadid and Karlie Kloss, Larry King’s Velvet Texture Clay offers instant body and texture for extra oomph.

Meanwhile Joanna Czech’s Facial Massager is sculpted with cooling zinc and aluminium alloys to speed up circulation and direct oxygen to the skin.
