Finally, the beauty collection we've all been waiting for

It's here. The ZARA Beauty Collection is now available to buy and we couldn't be more excited.

The brand has dabbled in beauty products in the past - there was the odd lipstick and as of last year they have an ongoing fragrance collaboration with scent-guru Jo Malone. But this is its first-ever proper curated collection. Aimed at inclusivity, the products are for anyone and everyone, no matter a person's gender, age or skin colour. They are setting that tone with the hashtag #thereisnobeautyonlybeauties.

Created under the direction of British make-up supremo Diane Kendall, the range feature stunning cruelty-free formulas, beautiful refillable packaging and over 130 dreamy colours.

'When ZARA approached me to lead the creative direction of ZARA Beauty, I saw an opportunity to make something that everyone would want to use,' Kendal explains. 'ZARA has always reached such a diverse audience, and I wanted to bring that same big vision to beauty with a collection that is clean, refillable and accessible to all.'

What should you buy?

Honestly? Everything. There is something for everyone in this collection, but here are our favourite products that will help with your Zara shopping hacks...

Stiletto Demi-Matte Lipstick, £9.99 | Zara

Stiletto Demi-Matte Lipstick - Zara Beauty

This is your everyday, chuck-it-on-whilst-on-the-move lipstick. It's hydrating, so won't gather in your lip's creases, but the colour payoff is punchy enough to last. Comes in 10 shades.

Nail Polish, £5.99 | Zara

Nail Polish - Zara Beauty

There are a whopping 39 colours of nail polishes to choose from and each one exudes pure joy. We'll take one of each thanks.

Large Shader Brush, £10.99 | Zara

Large Shader Brush - Zara Beauty

Every make-up bag should have a brush like this in it. It's the perfect blending brush - you can use it to diffuse your eyeshadow or even to buff your concealer in. It's an absolute staple. (And an absolute steal.) There are six brushes in the collection and everyone of them would be an asset to your kit.

Face Time Trio, £17.99 | Zara

Face Time Trio - Zara Beauty

We love a face palette that has everything you could possibly need to sculpt your face. No faffing necessary with three separate products. They feel like velvet on the skin and look like it too. There are three options for different skin tones.

Eye Shadow Palette, £17.99 | Zara 

Eyeshadow Palette - Zara Beauty

There's a party in this palette and your eyes are invited. As restrictions lift, we're ready to go all out with our make-up looks and we know precisely which beauty brand is going to help us get there. (Psst, it's you Zara.)

The full collection is now available on the Zara website, so what are you waiting for? Go spend that money that you've saved in lockdown.
