1 ATKIN­SONS What The Bri­tish per­fume house started with a hum­ble rose-scented d hair po­made made with bear grease e in 1799, and went on to be­come the e of­fi­cial per­fumer to the Bri­tish Royal al Court in 1826. The re­vived brand ex­udes a sense of gran­deur with its s orange and pur­ple colour scheme, and clas­sic-look­ing bot­tles. There’s also o an air of play­ful­ness in its tongue-in­ncheek lit­er­a­ture and the fas­ci­nat­ing g rein­ven­tion of its bear em­blem as a dandy mas­cot. We love The Nup­tial Bou­quet EDT T (100ml), $188, of lilies, vi­o­let leaves and white musk is a mod­ern take on Queen Vic­to­ria’s bri­dal bou­quet; and Fash­ion De­cree EDT (100ml), $188, is a patchouli scent in­spired by pre­cious silk bro­cade packed with dried patchouli leaves. 2 IL­LA­MASQUA What Known for its bold, edgy and the­atri­cal makeup col­lec­tions, this Bri­tish la­bel wants to en­cour­age women to use colour for self-ex­pres­sion. You’ll find its prod­ucts highly pig­mented and long-last­ing. We love Lip­stick, $34, gives you ex­actly the colour you see on the stick. It’s avail­able in 32 hues, and right now, we’re go­ing gaga over the shade, Li­able, that bright­ens all skin tones. 3 IN­N­IS­FREE What Great for those with del­i­cate skin, this South Korean brand de­vel­ops skin­care, makeup and body-care prod­ucts from nat­u­ral in­gre­di­ents that are cul­ti­vated on Jeju Is­land. It’s eco-friendly too, as it uses re­cy­clable pack­ag­ing. We love In­n­is­free The Green Tea Seed Serum (80ml), $36. Use it af­ter your cleanser and be­fore your toner to keep your skin hy­drated. This boosts the ef­fi­cacy of skin­care prod­ucts that fol­low. 4 BRAD BIOPHOTONIC What Cre­ated to com­bat the harm­ful ef­fects of air travel – de­hy­dra­tion, low oxy­gen lev­els and UV dam­age – this was orig­i­nally de­vel­oped for a pri­vate air­craft com­pany. The uni­sex skin­care for­mu­las are made with bio-fer­mented plant in­gre­di­ents that re­sist ox­i­da­tion and can be ab­sorbed read­ily into skin. On top of that, all the prod­ucts are stored in chic Miron Vi­o­let glass bot­tles to pro­tect the ef­fi­cacy of the ac­tive in­gre­di­ents. We love Brad Biophotonic Es­sen­tial Elixir Multi-pep­tide Youth Regenerating Serum (50ml), $120, strength­ens the skin against pre­ma­ture age­ing. 5 IOMA What Founded by French sci­en­tist Jean Michel Karam, who also de­vel­ops pres­sure sen­sors for air­planes and blood pres­sure sen­sors for med­i­cal uses, Ioma of­fers off-the-shelf skin­care so­lu­tions and cus­tomised reg­i­mens. A con­sul­ta­tion be­gins with you look­ing into the Ioma Sphere, a patented de­vice that anal­y­ses your skin’s con­di­tion. We love The Be­spoke Youth Rit­ual, $430, a set that in­cludes an Ac­tive Base Day and Ac­tive Base Night, is cus­tomised to your skin’s im­me­di­ate needs. Each prod­uct works as a serum and mois­turiser. 6 ORBIS What This Ja­panese brand is about cre­at­ing healthy skin from in­side out with its range of beauty and diet sup­ple­ments, and 100 per cent oil-free skin­care prod­ucts that fo­cus on keep­ing skin well mois­turised. We love The wa­ter-based makeup re­mover and cleanser, Orbis Cleansing Liq­uid, $20.50, which elim­i­nates wa­ter­proof eye makeup while leav­ing skin hy­drated. It leaves no oily residue, too!
