If you’re a fan of the clean, sleek lines of Scandinavian design coupled with the purest of ingredients and the highest level of innovation (the founder of the brand Nikos Mouyiaris also owns a large, high-end cosmetics manufacturing company), then you’re going to love MAKE Beauty.
Founded in 2013, the brand prides itself on never blindly following trends, instead focusing on creative self-expression and encouraging people to approach beauty in an artful way. It’s the beauty brand for the arty smart set, with innovative products like the Moonlight Primer, which blocks out radiation from electronics and helps to protect against damage caused by heavy metals (a must for people who live in the city). For people with OCD, its lipglosses are even antibacterial.
Another reason we love the brand, it donates 10 per cent of all sales to the We See Beauty Foundation, a non-profit organisation that supports women-led cooperative businesses. MAKE Beauty is currently available exclusively at Net-A-Porter outside of the United States. The online shopping site is launching 30 of MAKE Beauty’s bestselling products across the categories of makeup, transformers and skincare; all of which are developed to layer and come in an array of unique colours, finishes and textures to create individual looks.
