1 AU NA­TUREL

“French girls pre­tend they’re not pay­ing at­ten­tion to the way they look, but they are – a lot,” laughs Is­abel Marant. If only we could pull off that no-ef­fort beauty look mod­els do so well at Marant’s shows.

2 CLEAN BEAUTY

Emma Wat­son, Anne Hath­away and our favourite green god­dess De­li­ciously Ella are all stead­fast fans of the green (in all senses) brand. Grown on Tata Harper’s own land – elim­i­nat­ing a pol­lut­ing pro­duc­tion line – and free of GMOs, tox­ins and syn­thetic chem­i­cals, you can see why she’s got an all-star fan­base.

Hands up who takes their vi­ta­mins? Yup, us too! Now hands up who feeds vi­ta­mins to their hair? Thought so, nei­ther do we. Sis­ley’s hair care range with omega rich plant oils and vi­ta­min in­fu­sions will fix that pronto. Sis­ley Vo­lu­miz­ing Spray

Ev­ery beauty geek in the USA has been ob­sess­ing over this new skin­care line that prom­ises to use low­haz­ard in­gre­di­ents. That’s be­cause ap­par­ently even nat­u­ral prod­ucts can be harm­ful to the skin. Sign us up!
