Make-up & Hair Edit

This week the Urban Retreat Beautique brings you their edit of the best in Hair and Make-up for the party season. We’ve tried them all, seen the results and even found some useful tips along the way (it’s a hard job but someone’s got to do it!) So take a read of our top picks and tips to get glam for Christmas – and New Year - the fuss-free way.



MoroccanOil Repair Essentials Set

The beautiful white cosmetics case holds MoroccanOil’s Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner as well as their original hero product; the Oil Treatment.

The Argan Oil enriched within each product – the phenomenon that’s taken the hair industry by storm and is the value of liquid gold to us! – penetrates hair deeply to nourish fibres and smooth cuticles for an all-round hair care system. The result; luscious, glossy and gorgeously scented hair.
Top Tip:
After Shampooing hair, massage the Repair Conditioner through the lengths and leave in for at least 3-4 minutes. The hot steam from the shower will help the product soak into air and work its magic. Rinse thoroughly and just before or after styling, run a few drops of the Oil Treatment through lengths for added nourishment.



Laura Mercier Luxe Colour Wardrobe

The palette that keeps on giving. Rivalling any make-up bag, this double decker set held in a small, luxe compact is for ideal use anytime at home, travelling or on-the-go.

Complete with 8 fabulous shades for eyes, 3 Tightline Cake Eye Liners, 2 Second Skin Cheek Colours, 1 exclusive Face Highlighter and Laura Mercier's latest Longwear Crème Eye Pencil – and all the make-up brushes you need to go with – the palette is held together in a chic little case for the best in beauty gifting this Christmas.

Code Beautiful Code Mascara

Brand new to Beautique and topping our ever-growing list of loved mascaras Code Beautiful’s Code Volume Lash Mascara is a richly pigmented black mascara with added vitamins and nourishing waxes to encourage lash growth.

A day in the office followed by the after-hours office party? Transform your look with the tear-proof, water-proof and long-lasting formula that works for a day-to-night lash look simply and easily.
Top Tip:
Always dab the very tip of your mascara brush gently into a tissue to avoid the build-up of product on the end over-coating lashes and clumping them with mascara. Additionally, after brushing the product through lashes, be sure to close eyes and run the mascara wand over the top of lashes from the base to the tips to comb out any excess mascara and further fan lashes.


Laura Mercier Signature Brushes Luxury

Make-up. Our cosmetic bags and dresser drawers are brimming with it. From shadows to glosses and mascaras to liners; but getting the very best out of your make-up comes down to more than just the shades you pick. Application, application, application! Laura Mercier’s Signature Brushes Luxury is more than just a great gift this Christmas - there’s a perfect brush for every product and look you can think of.

The set of 10 full-sized professional brushes sculpt, highlight, blend, contour and define for true artistry at its best and most luxurious. All held together beautifully in a rich brown Tiger Wood box with lock and key.
Top Tip:
Make-up brushes can often trap excess make-up, oil and bacteria between the fibres so keeping brushes clean is imperative to maintain your investment in them – and prevent clogged pores and breakouts. Once a week after you’re done with your application, simply run your brushes under warm water and use an extra gentle make-up remover to delicately swish your brushes around in before rinsing them again. Wipe each one clean using a lint free cloth in a downwards motion to smoothen the bristles and leave to air dry for an hour or so after.


Unite U Luxury Shampoo and Conditioner

Enriched with a blend of Crushed Pearl, Hawaiian White Honey and Pure Argan Oil – possible the most decadent of hair products ever! – Unite’s aptly named U-Luxury range is sulfate-free and targets dull, limp and lifeless hair lacking vital nutrients. Results are visible and feel-able after the first wash and resilient shine is also enhanced.

The set of 10 full-sized professional brushes sculpt, highlight, blend, contour and define for true artistry at its best and most luxurious. All held together beautifully in a rich brown Tiger Wood box with lock and key.
Top Tip:
Although suitable for all hair types, the shampoo and conditioner are both very rich and luxurious so we recommend saving the luxury set for the worst of hair days to enjoy long-lasting and best results when you really need them. For daily good hair days, we also recommend Unite’s Moisturising and Volumising hair care systems to maintain hair health between indulging in the U-Luxury products.
