Five resolutions you'll actually keep
09 January 2019
Are you tired of all the new year, new you clichés? Us too. It’s time to set some realistic resolutions, starting with your beauty regime. Be it sustainable or vitamin C-infused, read on to discover Fabled by Marie Claire's top five products to set you on the right track.
SHOP ALL BEAUTY
1. New year, new hue
Benefit Chachabalm, £15.50
Move over millennial pink, Pantone has ‘Living Coral’ as the cult colour to be seen in this year. Set the tone with a subtle tint of Chachabalm – Benefit’s multitasking makeup buy, which starts as a mango tint and turns to a juicy coral on the lips, conditioning and hydrating them at the same time. Press it onto the apples of cheeks or dab onto your lips instead of a lipstick for an instant January perk-me-up.
2. Yes to (more) SPF
Zelens Daily Defence Sunscreen SPF 30, £55
Start the year off on a sensible note and add more SPF into your year-round skincare routine. Wearing it via your makeup alone isn’t enough to protect your skin, so start with a high-factor sunscreen then layer with an SPF 15+ foundation or tinted moisturiser for easy bonus points.
3. Clean beauty
Beautyblender Liquid Blendercleanser, £16
Indulge your inner Instagram-star Mrs Hinch and wash your brushes more regularly. Squeeze a drop of gel into warm water, swirl the bristles and rinse, then reshape and dry the brush flat. This Beautyblender cleanser is both paraben and sulfate-free and works on brushes, as well as your Beautyblender sponge. Experts recommend doing this weekly to boost performance and ensure your brushes last longer – though realistically, cleaning them once per month should suffice. It’s also a lot easier than stripping your bed, but with similar levels of smug.
4. Conscious beauty
REN Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream, £32
The beauty industry is in major self-improvement mode for 2019. Expect to see a rise in sustainable, recyclable, waterless, vegan, plastic-free, organic and anti-animal testing launches across makeup, wellness and skincare. We can thank Sir David Attenborough for that one.
Fabled by Marie Claire loves REN’s Evercalm Global Protection Day Cream – not only does it reduce redness and sensitivity but it also contains bioactives that benefit skin health for a truly natural glow. REN is spearheading the clean beauty mission. The goal? Zero waste by 2021, starting with a plan to produce 100% recyclable packaging.
5. Take your vitamin C
The Ordinary Ascorbyl Glucoside Solution 12%, £9
Mark 2019 as the year that vitamin C went big time. The Ordinary’s serum is the ultimate choice, thanks mainly to Ascorbyl Glucoside – a water-soluble derivative, which ensures it both brightens and evens out skin tone and simultaneously glides on like a serum.
