Chantecaille’s new Mermaid Eye Matte trio is inspired by the work of three tireless conservationists, with 5% of sales going to Dr Lucy King’s Elephants and Bees Project, Dr Stephanie Dolrenry’s Lion Guardians and Angela Sheldrick’s Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Warm brown Bee, smoky grey Elephant and soft vanilla Lion have each been created with a velvety matte formula and water-resistant properties, and can be worn standalone for a classic neutral eye or layered for a bolder night-time look. £80.


Tapping into the booming wellness trend, the Bobbi Brown Remedies range offers six treatments designed to improve skin’s health. Themed around the idea of an apothecary, each numbered remedy targets a specific complexion concern — from dehydration to irritation — using potent infusions of natural ingredients, such as red algae, shea butter and mineral-infused water. Use individually or
you can layer with foundation. From £25.
