Code8: The simple, streamlined, and scientific makeup line adored by celebrities and fashion houses alike
Keeping up with the latest developments of the makeup sphere is no easy feat, considering the saturated and fast-moving beauty market right now. Brands are dropping new collections on the daily (Colourpop); breakthrough formulations invented at the drop of a hat (Glossier's serum-highlighter hybrid); and new labels are popping up on the 'gram by the minute. So does the world really need yet another makeup brand?
Call us crazy but our answer remains a resounding 'yes' — particularly if it brings something new to the table. Take London-based makeup label, Code8. Unlike the Instagram-friendly, trend-crazy crops, the brand prides itself on high-performing, scientific formulations in universally flattering hues to suit every skin tone and undertone.
Think a curated, colour-conscious collection that promises budge-proof wear and effortless application. No grappling with indecision, touch-ups, or technicalities when it comes to your makeup. Instead, expect smart, simplified, and stellar formulas to transform your routine as you know it.
It comes as no surprise that the celebrities are all over the brand. Angelina Jolie, Billy Porter, and Renée Zellweger consider themselves fans; while established fashion houses Lanvin, Emilia Wickstead, and Helmut Lang opt to adorn their models with Code8's face paint. Difficult as it might be for mortals to differentiate quality amongst quantity these days, rest knowing this one is a winner.
