Selena Gomez’s Rare Beauty will debut with 48 foundation shades, Glossier does hand cream, and other beauty news
1. Selena Gomez will launch Rare Beauty with 48 foundation hues.
Sound familiar? The songstress broke the news just a few days back, confirming rumours that the brand's first drop would comprise a 48-shade collection of both foundation and concealer. And while Gomez made no mentions about The Fenty Effect, she did attribute this decision to wanting "people to feel safe." Hey, we're all for it, either way.
2. Glossier is set to release — and donate — 10,000 hand creams.
The first 10,000 units will be issued to medical workers across the United States. This comes after their initial initiative, where they donated thousands of Glossier Priming Moisturisers, Soothing Face Mists, and Balm Dot Coms to hospitals and healthcare facilities around the world. Speaking of new releases, though...
3. Celebrity MUA, Patrick Ta, has invented a revolutionary new brow product.
One which makes it easy to get the feathery, soaped-up brows you've been seeing all over your Instagram feed, mind. Meet the Patrick Ta Beauty Shaping Wax, which comes in a clear and tinted variation. To use, spritz water or a setting spray on the wax, then run a spoolie brush over it before applying to brows. Ingenious? We have to agree.
4. Milk Makeup drops a new brow pencil.
Long-wear, water-resistant, and, uh, triple-tipped? That's right, its innovative design is apparently ideal for filling, feathering, and building dimensional brows like you wouldn't believe. Hit add to cart when it drops on the Sephora site 20 April.
5. Hourglass adds two new products to their cult-favourite Veil range.
That's right, the Veil family is growing. Enter: the Veil Eye Primer and Veil Soft Focus Setting Spray, which can be used in conjunction to maintain your beat face no matter the weather. Celebs in the vein of Rosie Huntington Whiteley and Claire Marshall already consider themselves fans.
