The Marie Claire Beauty Edit: Best of Beauty SS21

 Following on from the huge success of The Marie Claire Edit – our first-in-class shopping platform curated by our Fashion Editors and influencers - we’re launching our premium beauty shopping platform, exclusively with Net-A-Porter. Introducing, the Marie Claire Beauty Edit.

Our expertly curated Edit of Beauty Editor and makeup artist-approved products enables you to browse and shop the beauty brands you know and love with ease. Whilst also discovering new products and tools, from the likes of Irene Forte and Teresa Tarmey.

Shop The Shoot is our instantly shoppable beauty shoot, which was photographed by Kyle Galvin and styled by Contributing Fashion Editor Sarah-Rose Harrison with art direction by Craig Hemming. Filled with buy-now, apply-now and wear-now favourites, everything is available to purchase directly through the Marie Claire site via Net-A-Porter. Right now.

There are step-by-step breakdowns of each look, where our makeup artist, Louise Hall, and hairstylist, Ross Kwan, tell you which products they used and how.

There's never been a better time to invest in your skincare, have a play with your makeup and recreate a look. Or three?!


Jessica wearsThe Refrain of the Night necklace, £265, Alighieri | The Rhymes of Love earrings, £280, Alighieri 

For that chic slicked-back, wet-look style, hair supremo Ross Kwan revealed, "I always say, after washing your hair. The best way to achieve an effortless wet look is simply to use a hair treatment and leave it in. Oribe's Signature Moisture Mask is a favourite of mine. It's an intensely hydrating deep-treatment formulated to deeply penetrate the hair, with soothing, detangling and shine-maximising active ingredients. For extra hold on your slicked-back tresses, lightly apply a layer of gel along the hairline"

Our makeup artist-approved Edit of easy, everyday make-up staples that won't overcomplicate your routine always starts with skincare. "Your base is key," shares makeup artist Louise Hall.

Jessica wears from Left-Right | Resist Super-Light Daily Wrinkle Defense SPF 30, £22, Paula's Choice | The Eye Concentrate, £180, La Mer 

To achieve Jessica's dewy, glow makeup artist Louise Hall recommends applying a gentle lip balm, like Dr. Barbara Sturm's across your lips and eyelids.


Cathrina wears | Eden blouse, £485, Galvan London | The Infinite Offering necklace, £210, Alighieri | Platinum+ Professional Styler, £189, ghd

For sleek glossy hair, hairstylist Ross Kwan prepped our model Catherina's hair with Oribe's Super Shine Moisturising Creme before blowdrying. Spritzing her hair with Oribe's Impermeable Spray for a shine-boosting light hold.

Then straightening with ghd's iconic straighteners, fitted with contoured ceramic plates designed to prevent snagging, they're such a fuss-free way to create frizz-free, sleek styles. A favourite of our Senior Beauty Editor, Katie Thomas the Platinum+ Professional Styler is made with dual-zone technology which evenly distributes heat, holding an optimum styling temperature of 185°C. Don't forget your heat protection!


Marika wears | Paola and Francesca necklace, £280, AlighieriThe Edge Of The Abyss rings, £180 each, AlighieriThe Flashback bracelet, £165, Alighieri

Augustinus Bader's lightweight (vegan and paraben-free) The Body Oil, is a coveted favourite. It's so popular Net-a-Porter have just restocked after it sold out twice. Blended with nourishing and hydrating ingredients like Vitamin E, Argan Oil, Olive Fruit Oil and Squalane. It helps to even tone and create a smoother appearance, instantly sinks in without leaving behind a greasy feel.
