Beauty News Of The Week: Filter-Worthy Makeup, Online Aesthetic Consultations & A Serum Of Our Dreams

The 411 in the beauty world right now.
Hourglass expands its iconic Veil Collection
Meet the brand’s Veil Eye Primer ($48) and Veil Soft Focus Setting Spray ($80, above). The former features a weightless formula enriched with vitamin E and antioxidant-rich ingredients to combat dryness and prevent eyeshadow shades from caking up on the lids. It also creates a perfect canvas for any eye makeup to evenly – and easily – go on while preventing it from creasing or fading off. The latter is an ultra-fine mist that helps to set makeup for a reported 24 hours thanks to its water-resistant properties, while hydrating skin. The lightweight formula helps to give a soft-focus effect and blurs out imperfections for a smooth and radiant complexion. Book tele-consultations with doctors at IDS Clinic
Need professional skincare advice urgently during this circuit-breaker? From now till May 4, the homegrown skincare and aesthetics brand will be offering tele-consultations for its customers.

A clinic therapist will also be present to assist with product usage and recommendations.  Charlotte Tilbury dropped a serum of our dreams
Known as Charlotte’s Magic Serum Crystal Elixir ($170), this supercharged serum aims to target dryness, dullness and roughness, all while strengthening the skin’s resilience for a healthier complexion. It is powered by the brand’s Tilbury Magic 8 Complex, which works alongside a host of superior ingredients like a Holistic 5-Crystal Complex, wrinkle targeting peptides, vitamin C and polyglutamic acid, which is said to be four times more hydrating than hyaluronic acid. With such high-tech and effective ingredients, this aims to treat enlarged pores, improve elasticity and firmness, plump up fine lines and wrinkles, and intensely hydrates for smoother, younger-looking skin.    Clarins offers personalised DIY skin rituals
