These Are the Products Emily Ratajkowski Swears By for Glowing Skin

June 30, 2020 at 06:30AM

Right now, we must admit that scrolling through Instagram doesn’t seem like the healthiest of ways to spend time. With workout videos, home tours and book reviews galore, it’s all too easy to fall into a comparison trap while scrolling through your feed. However, there is one particular Instagram movement happening right now that we think everyone can benefit from, and that’s the one where our favourite celebs show us what’s in their bathroom cabinets, including their go-to beauty products.

With literally everyone in their homes at the moment, even the A-list can’t resist giving us a little glimpse into their everyday routines. While we all appreciate a good nosey into anyone’s beauty collection, there is a handful of celeb routines that we are itching to see. And as if the social media gods are granting us one beauty wish at a time, the queen of glow, Emily Ratajkowski, recently took to Instagram to share her go-to skincare products of the moment.

In a quick Q+A session with her followers, one beauty buff wanted to know more about the model’s skincare routine. And just like so many of us, it turns out EmRata’s skin isn’t enjoying being locked up indoors much at the moment either. “My skin isn’t amazing right now. I’ve been picking a lot because I’m at home, but this is what I use,” she said before sharing an edited selection of products.

Don’t worry if you missed it—we’ve got you. If you’re as in awe of Emily’s perpetual glow as we are and want to know more about the beauty products she swears by, keep scrolling.

This rich cleansing balm removes makeup and impurities in a matter of seconds to reveal luminous skin. It’s no wonder it’s such a fave, really.

Developed by the A-list’s favourite dermatologist, Dr Dennis Gross, this particular moisturiser contains both retinol and collagen to help combat signs of ageing. And if Emily’s a fan, we reckon it’s worth trying out. 

It might be a little pricey, but this wonder oil is jam-packed with antioxidants and hydrating natural ingredients for a plump, glowing finish.

Well, isn’t this quite the surprise? This spot treatment contains salicylic acid to help unclog pores and minimise the appearance of blemishes. The fact that Emily Ratajkowski actually uses a £4 spot treatment is extraordinary. What’s more impressive is that it hasn’t sold out yet. 

Next up, the six affordable skincare brands that actually work.

I’m Convinced This Summer Dress Colour Suits Everyone

June 30, 2020 at 06:00AM

As someone who’s worked in fashion for quite a few years, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve been asked for wardrobe advice. One area in particular that people want to know about is which colours suit them. While I always think you need to just work out what you love and go from there, I do know that there is one colour that suits everyone.

A few years ago, my colleague and Editor-in-chief of Who What Wear UK Hannah Almassi wrote a piece on how red, and in particular primary red, is actually the most universally-flattering colour and suits all skin tones. Despite this, I’ve had a lot of people tell me that this colour isn’t for them.

While I’ve always been a fan of the hue, I hope that any red naysayers will be encouraged to opt for it, now presented with the above evidence. And my favourite way to wear it right now? In the form of a summer dress. Because, trust me, you’ll wear it every year from now on. Keep scrolling to see how Grece Ghanem is wearing red summer dresses then shop my edit of the best…

Style Notes: Bold red with white stilettos? Yes please. 

Style Notes: How elegant does this red halterneck look with mules?

The One Place I Turn to For Luxe Summer Outfit Ideas

June 30, 2020 at 06:00AM

Working as an editor on a fashion publication, I am always on the lookout for new sources of inspiration, particularity when it comes to putting together a winning outfit. In the saturated world of social media, it’s all too easy to get lost in a hole of cookie-cutter ensembles and variations-on-a-theme influencer feeds. The trick is to look to places that might not seem obvious, and for me that’s Net-a-Porter. 

It’s simple: if I’m struggling to think of new ways to style something I’ll simply search for similar pieces on the site and it’ll come up with countless examples professionally styled outfits. Or, if I just need some general ideas for new pairings, I’ll look in the new-in section and see what takes my fancy. Plus, as someone who always struggles more with high summer fashion, Net-a-Porter has been a godsend over the last month, with so many fab warm weather looks filtering in. 

Now that the temperatures are starting to hit the mid-twenties, it’s time for me to get my fix of new season fashion inspo. At the top of my list is Nicholas’ achingly-cool knitted vest and longline shorts get-up that I plan on recreating with my chunky Birkenstocks. I also have a serious crush on Bondi Born’s terracotta-coloured bikini and trousers set, which will look just as good for sunbathing in the park as it will on your summer holidays in 2021. Scroll down to see the four outfits that caught my eye this season and shop the looks. 

Style Notes: I love the terracotta hue of this matching bikini top and trousers. I’d just throw on a white tee to make it weekend-ready.

Style Notes: I mean, you really can’t go wrong eith a floral midi dress in the summer months, and this one caught my eye with its stunning ruffled, square neckline. 

Style Notes: This has got to be my favourite look out of my selection. The knitted vest feels very ’90s, but the longline shorts kick it into 2020. 

Style Notes: The minimalist dress is fast becoming the fashion girl’s go-to this summer and I can certainly see why. This floaty maxi will keep you cool in every sense of the word.

Small But Mighty: 51 Summer Buys From the Coolest Independent Brands

June 30, 2020 at 06:00AM

Whether you’re a shoe hoarder or a jacket fanatic, a dress lover or a bag addict, it’s safe to say that there is an independent brand to cater to your wardrobe needs.Thanks to word of mouth and the power of social media, theever-diversifying fashion industry is finally allowing niche labels to come to the fore. Big brands don’t have a monopoly over the landscape, as many customers are wanting to invest in original design and lesser-known styles.  

Sadly, some of these labels are being hit by the current crisis, and as a publication, we’re doing our very best to support the talent we love in any way possible. That’s why we’ve dedicated our end-of-month shopping gallery to these independent brands. Honestly, we were spoilt for choice, and we wish we could include every brand we came across online (although that would turn into a long article), but we managed to whittle it down to 51 summer-ready pieces.

Of course, we understand that many of you are tightening the purse strings right now, but we would love for you to show your support by giving your favourite independent brand some airtime on social media, posting a nice comment on its feed, or even just giving it a like—every little bit helps! But if you happen to be in need of a little fashion-based pick-me-up this month, scroll down to see the pieces we’re loving this summer. Enjoy!

10 Affordable Trends French Girls Are Wearing This Summer

June 30, 2020 at 05:00AM

It’s no secret that we’re enamored with French-girl style over here at Who What Wear. From the effortless basics they wear time and time again to the lingerie brands they love and the beauty products they swear by to their low-maintenance hair cuts, we love to delve into how to achieve that effortlessly cool, unconventional yet refined French-girl aesthetic.

So now that summer is here, we’re honing in on the affordable trends that french girls are wearing and loving this warm-weather season. From classics such as straw bags to runway-approved trends such as crochet, french girls are serving us some seriously chic style this summer. Scroll below to shop all the chic trends for under £150.

Effortless slip dresses are a staple in every French-girl wardrobe. This season, we’re seeing milkmaid gathered styles trending with delicate spaghetti straps. 

When it comes to swimwear, retro-inspired silhouettes reign supreme—think high-waisted bikini bottoms and balconette styles.

Shop matching Leopard-Print Underwired Bikini Top (£75).

Espadrilles remain a stylish and versatile classic in practically every French woman’s warm-weather wardrobe. They work well with dresses, skirts, and shorts alike.

French girls have been leaning into the prevalent ’70s crochet trend we saw all over the S/S 2020 runways—exuding a free-spirited summer vibe.

Straw bags practically define French-girl summer style. Whether you opt for a raffia tote or wicker basket bag, they are the perfect finishing touch to your summer ensembles.

Along with basic button-downs, tanks and tees, pretty vintage-inspired blouses are prevalent in a French girls summer wardrobe. Opt for one with exaggerated collars and billowy puff sleeves. 

A hair scarf is the It accessory of summer 2020. French girls have been embracing them—adding a chic retro touch to their summer looks.

There’s no question French girls have an affinity towards cardigans, even in summer. Opt for a lightweight, cropped cardigan to take on the trend.

When it’s too hot to wear straight-leg jeans, French girls opt for denim shorts instead. Prevent the casual shorts from looking too beachy by pairing them with chic accessories, polished flats, and a sophisticated handbag.

The free-spirited ’70s trend continues to be winning over French girls this summer, with oversize retro sunglasses reigning supreme.

This Under £15 Skincare Brand Will Change The Way You See Your Skin

June 30, 2020 at 04:07AM

It often takes a minute for beauty to catch up with conversations that have been circling in social media communities. Skin acceptance and skin positivity movements have been making their way around for a while, but there’s not really been a brand whose been able to capture it in an authentic way. 

Yes, un-retouched photographs of models are a huge deal but this authenticity needs to follow through in all areas of the brand. I’m talking everything from prices to how they’re engaging with their audience.

So, enter Skin Proud with their call to have us all embracing our skin. Not just one type of skin either, as the brand has made it a priority to make the products and language they use as inclusive as possible. Not a single person or skin type will be left behind and in an industry with so many barriers, it’s seriously refreshing. 

Skin Proud back all of this up with an affordable range of products under £15 that are cruelty free, 100% vegan and focus on transparency. 

Already crushing? Well, wait until you try the products. I was already fan-girling when I read up on the brand, but once the products landed on my face, it was a game-changer. 

I tried out the entire range of products that are super easy-to-use, look great in my bathroom cabinet and actually work. As in, after using Skin Proud my skin is softer, bouncier and more radiant than it was before. I’m well aware that I sound like I’m auditioning for a 3 minute TV advert here, but trust me, this is some good stuff. 

Want in on the action? Keep scrolling to read my review of the products.

I don’t know if I ate too much jelly and ice-cream when I was younger, but I’ll buy any beauty product that has a jelly-like feel. This moisturiser melted into my skin and felt like a breath of fresh air on an uncomfortably hot fan-free day. It honestly feels like splashing your face with water and the soothing rose flower and hyaluronic acid provide all the bouncy skin results. 

This serum is gentle yet oh so effective. If you’ve been nervous about giving retinol a go, then this serum that’s also filled with rosehip oil, hyaluronic acid and 0.5% retinol, might be just what you’re looking for. 8.5 hours of sleep later and my skin was exfoliated, tighter (in the best way) but still super supple. 

Thanks to the insufficient thickness of my yoga leggings, I’ve got a very sad case of dry patches on my knees. Luckily, this balm came into my life at just the right time and I’ve been slathering the jojoba and coconut oil base all over my sore knees ever since. They’re back to normal now and I credit this all-rounder with the transformation. 

It’s always a risky move when you try new skincare the night before hosting a Zoom event but the scent of this overnight mask reeled me in. In case you’re wondering, it smells like berry sweets in a bag of pick ‘n’ mix. That’ll be the nourishing cranberry seed oil and raspberry extract. 

I usually like thick, mascarpone-like masks so I wasn’t sure how well this super lightweight texture would fare. All I have to say is that I woke up to dewy skin that felt deeply hydrated and somehow changed how well my makeup application went. Sold. 

I haven’t been riding the hyaluronic acid wave and it’s for no reason other than that I got distracted by other ingredients. I always got the hype but there’s one too many half full bottles of the stuff taking up space in my bathroom. This one is set to be a keeper though as the refreshing gel is the perfect texture and as it delivers so much glow and hydration, I’ve not needed to use as many other products.

I must admit, I don’t rate eye creams at all as I am yet to find one that delivers on its promises. But, my under-eyes have been getting pretty dehydrated recently, so I put my skepticism to one side and tried this. With the mighty trio of shea butter, vitamin C and niacinamide (my ride-or-die); my hayfever eyes feel much less irritated and more moisturised. 

The texture of the cream is so light it disappears instantly when you applied; from this day onwards heavy eye creams are no longer welcome. 

Up next, how to make your skin routine more mindful.

I’m a Beauty Editor, and This Is My Daily Beauty Routine From Start to Finish

June 29, 2020 at 06:30PM

I have to admit that by beauty editor standards, my beauty routine is relatively low-key. Don’t get me wrong—I love an at-home beauty treatment just as much as the next person, but finding the time to sit down and spend hours upon hours tending to my skin, hair, nails and makeup isn’t so easy. And besides the time aspect of things, I also find myself getting bored very quickly. If you ask me, I’d say that my daily beauty routine is just like any other person’s, but perhaps with just a bit more product variety.

Then, every so often, I get a reality check. It turns out that actually, for most, a structured beauty routine doesn’t go that far beyond a daily cleansing (often just with a face wipe or micellar water) and moisturising. But that was before. Now, everyone seems to be itching to invest some of their recently freed-up time in their beauty routines.

As a result of this, I have been inundated with messages from friends and family wanting to pick my brains on exactly what beauty products I’m using during this trying time. And while I haven’t massively switched up my daily beauty line up, I have been taking advantage of having an extra couple of free hours in the day for a bit of pampering. Along with the rest of our lives, it’s reasonable that over the past few weeks, our beauty priorities are starting to shift too. For instance, I have pared my daily makeup routine right back and have found myself reaching for moisturising formulas that I would never usually favour.

So for those looking to expand their beauty horizons (or simply if you’re feeling a little nosey), keep scrolling for my current working-from-home beauty routine, from the minute I wake up to the minute I hit the hay.

I take three of these beauty supplements as soon as I wake up, and three before I go to sleep. I am by no means a huge supplement fan, but I have seen a few people rave about these on Instagram and thought I would give them a go. They are packed with skin-loving ingredients such as firming COQ10 and brightening vitamin C. I’m about three weeks into the four-week course and I can definitely say that my skin is in good shape at the moment. However, it is worth noting that I stopped my pollution-filled commute a few days after I started taking these too. As far as how I feel about supplements, in general, I’m still on the fence, but if my skin is happy while I’m taking them, then I’m happy. 

I always opt for a more gentle formula for my morning cleanse than I do for my evening one. I have naturally very congested pores so I need a cleanser that will work against grime and buildup but won’t leave my skin feeling dry and tight. This jelly oil cleanser is one of the best I have tried in a seriously long time. With some firm massage, the thick balm-like formula turns into sumptuous oil that leaves skin glowing beyond belief. Plus, the added massage really helps to plump and firm. 

My eyes are plagued with dark circles, even at the best of times. At the moment, with my sleep pattern all out of whack, my eyes are in a really bad way first thing in the morning. To help take down puffiness and boost radiance, I pop these super-affordable tissue masks on straight after cleansing and leave them on while I drink my morning cup of tea. Just 15 minutes later my eyes are visibly brighter and appear less sunken in.

I have really sensitive skin and my skin absolutely loathes vitamin C. I, therefore, get incredibly jealous when I see the out-of-this-world radiance and glow that it gives to other complexions. This morning mask, however, is pretty much the only vitamin C product that doesn’t leave my skin red and patchy. It’s a thick balm with exfoliating granules, and while I wouldn’t usually do a morning exfoliation, this leaves my skin so radiant it would be a crime to go to sleep and waste it. 

With a distinct lack of vitamin D, my skin is looking a little dry and lacklustre at the moment. This super-lightweight serum doesn’t clog my pores but gives my skin a well-deserved drink of hydration. Jam-packed with hyaluronic acid and glycerin, it’s one of the best affordable hydrating serums I’ve ever got my mitts on. 

People seem surprised when I tell them that I’m still wearing SPF every day during the lockdown. I can’t stress enough how important it is to wear SPF. At the moment, I’m working from my lounge, facing towards to big windows that the sun is shining right through. Sure, the UVB rays responsible for tanning (and burning) skin can’t penetrate the glass, but the UVA rays that cause ageing can pass straight through. This new formula from The Body Shop has fast become my daily favourite thanks to its second-skin, non-greasy finish.

After one week of going sans perfume, I recently picked up my daily spritz in a bid to make me feel a bit more human, and boy did it. This particular perfume is by far my most worn and most complimented since I discovered it last summer. It smells exactly like the name would suggest: fresh skin. Smelling as though I’ve just stepped out of the shower and wrapped myself up in a fluffy, freshly washed towel, a few spritzes first thing in the AM gives off the vibe that I’m a little more pulled-together than I really am—and that’s making all of the difference. 

I’d be lying if I said that I’ve been wearing a base every single day. However, for days when I have a few more Zoom calls than normal (or for our weekly Who What Wear UK Dress-Up Fridays), I like to give myself a hint of coverage. One pump of this skin tint makes my skin look juicy and dewy while helping to blur blemishes and pigmentation at the same time. 

New concealers come and go, but I will never, ever be without a pot of this stuff. I would never go to work without at least dabbing some of this heavy-duty concealer under my eyes, and why should that change just because I’m working from home? If you have dark under-eye circles like I do and hate the way that so many concealers create an attention-drawing sheen under the eyes, I urge you to try this. In fact, I urge everyone to try this. No concealer compares. 

Every beauty editor that I know has one particular product that they are so set on, any other samples that come their way in the same category get ignored. Mine is this. This matte bronzer is so perfect that I really don’t care for any other powder bronzer on offer. Lightly dusting this around the hairline and under the cheekbones in the morning gives skin a bronzed depth that I firmly believe only the actual sun itself could also achieve. Seeing as I’m not going to be basking in direct sunlight any time soon, this compact and I have never been closer. 

I’m not sure if you’ve guessed yet, but my current makeup situation is all about breathing some life back into my isolation complexion, and this liquid blush is no exception. It gives skin a dewy, glossy finish that looks so natural, it could just be real. 

I have never been one for pencilling in my brows, but with salon trips for waxing or threading totally out of the question, I’m using this putty-like gel to fix my unruly brows and get them under control. 

My eyelashes are naturally poker-straight and quite short. While the majority of my days are spent inside, I won’t be spending too much time on my mascara application. However, this super voluminous mascara only requires a couple of layers to make all of the difference. After just one zig-zag through my lashes delivers the boost of confidence I need to get started with the day. 

If I’m going to be washing my hands countless times a day, you can bet I want it to be an enjoyable experience. This cannabis hand wash might sound a little odd, but it smells incredibly citrusy and fresh and also contains amino acids to help prevent drying. 

With excessive hand washing comes dry, cracked hands. I’m trying to apply hand cream whenever I can to help soothe them and get them back to how they once were. This thick, nourishing cream from natural brand Haeckels not only smells absolutely heavenly and calming, but it’s also formulated with the brand’s signature seaweed extract for ultimate hydration. 

While I’m not usually a huge misting fan (I try to avoid putting any unnecessary product on my congestion-prone skin throughout the day), I can always make an exception for this stuff. Perfect for those with irritated skin or skin prone to redness, a few sprays of this mist over your face will offer instant relief. It’s calming sure, but it’s also full of moisturising goodness that leaves skin refreshed and dewy. 

I love this lip cream. It’s so calming and really helps to inject some moisture into my dry, chapped lips. However, my biggest gripe with it is that it’s a white cream which leaves behind a very unsightly cast. Since working from home, however, I have been slathering a thick layer over my lips at every given chance. 

My evening bath is seriously important to me. Not only does it give me an excuse to indulge in my most luxe beauty products, but it also ensures I set aside some relaxing alone time before I go to bed. My favourite bath salts for this are Goop’s The Martini. However, with everyone running themselves baths right now, it’s proving a little tricky to get hold of. To help fill the Goop-shaped hole in my heart, I thought I’d give these pre-bed salts a go instead. It’s safe to say I have not been disappointed. Filling the room with the most calming lavender and sandalwood aroma, leaving me totally zen, I never want these salts to run out. 

I know I said that I usually reserve my evening bath time for the more luxe products in my collection, but I make an excuse for this stuff. Costing just a tenth of the price of most other sleep-inducing body washes, this affordable option smells heavenly and leaves skin equally as soft and supple. 

My hair is long. It was already too long when I had to cancel my cut and colour appointment that was booked in two weeks ago. Now it’s out of control. While this range actually promotes more hair growth (not something I need right now), it also offers strands unrivalled nourishment without any unwanted weight. It’s like it was made for me. 

I really don’t enjoy moisturising my body, but I know I have to do it if I want soft, supple skin from head to toe. I find so many fragranced body creams irritating and other hypoallergenic formulas to be too thick and uncomfortable. This gem, however, as the three bears like to say, is just right. Post-bath, I massage a small amount of this into my limbs and it leaves them soothed, comforted and glowing. Plus, it fully sinks in with no greasiness by the time I climb into bed, which is more than I can say for some others I’ve used.

I’d love to say that this is the most expensive beauty product I own, but there is some ludicrously overpriced skincare out there. The Airwrap, however, is not overpriced. While the brush and cylinder attachments offer an extraordinary at-home blow-dry finish, it’s the smoothing brush attachment that I use every single day. After I have washed my hair, I give it a quick blast with the dryer attachment until it’s more or less dry and then I finish it off with the smoothing brush. It takes down any frizz and means all I have to do come morning is run a hairbrush through my lengths and I’m good to go.

Have I mentioned that my skin is super congested? While I do appreciate a great detoxifying mud mask and a gentle scrub from time to time, without using an effective salicylic acid cleanser in the evening, my blackheads get out of control. This particular cleanser has virtually cleared up my blackheads, helped reduce the size of my gigantic pores and costs under a tenner. 

Sensitive skin and glycolic acid don’t tend to gel too well, and my complexion is no exception. These clever pads work to gently exfoliate the skin using probiotics and natural extracts instead of aggravating acids. 

I am so pale right now that I am slathering on virtually anything and everything that promises glow. This new launch from St. Tropez has wormed its way into my daily routine thanks to its natural-looking finish and stellar hydration ingredients. Because I’m looking for all of the bronze that I can get, I apply this directly to my face and neck and let it sink in. Come morning, my skin looks so glowing I have to remind myself that I haven’t actually been to St. Tropez. Sob. 

If you haven’t heard of Curél before, I won’t shun you. However, I urge that you look it up as it’s Japan’s leading skincare brand for sensitive skin, and it’s wonderful. I have been working my way through this giant bottle of moisturiser for at least a month or two now and I’ve barely made a dent in it. Not only does it house my favourite hydrating and sensitive-skin-friendly ingredient ever (ceramides), it’s also excellent value for money. 

With the skin on my hands feeling particular sore right now, it’s prone to cracking around my knuckles. To keep cracked skin free from infection and to help soothe it, I apply a slather of Sudocrem to affected areas every single night.

Next up, 23 beauty products I turn to when I’m feeling out of sorts.

Toronto Upcycling Brand Scy By Julius Connects Creativity to Craft

June 29, 2020 at 06:55PM

We’re seeing many shifts in the fashion industry right now, from a broadening of the types of models shown wearing a brand’s clothing to the methods in which that clothing is made. And while plenty of large-scale labels will see their businesses go through a period of great adjustment as they modify their operations to be more inclusive and innovative, there are many exciting emerging lines that already follow this approach.

Take Toronto’s Scy By Julius; the one-year-old label launched by Julius Armand offers hats, handbags, denim and more, all made by upcycling primarily thrifted materials. “I basically decided, let me glue some cargo pant pockets on a pair of jeans and see how it goes,” he says about how he started to conceptualize the pieces that he eventually began to sell. (You can find an example of the style on the brand’s website.)

“I was always into fashion,” says Armand. “But it was never really accepted as a job by my parents. So, I went to school for architecture. After I graduated, I thought, this isn’t really what I want to do.” Armand decided to apply the ingenuity allowed for in architecture to a fashion design context, and he follows a personal approach to the pieces he makes, noting “It’s things I’d like to see myself in” when he’s mulling over ideas.

Armand also wants to inspire his audience to see themselves in his pieces, and is doing so by enabling members of the public to submit themselves as a model for the brand. “I want to see [different] people in my clothing,” he says of why he has opened up crowd casting for Scy By Julius images. “Especially if they’re someone who’s already purchased something–why not give them the opportunity to showcase what they bought? And it helps me show other people that they can wear it, too.” He says he appreciates the “interpersonal” relationship this visual democracy fosters. “It gives it more of an experience between me, the creator, and the customer,” he says.

Ever forward-looking, Armand also sees himself expanding his brand’s collections to include more elevated pieces in the future. “I’m going to take it as far as I can go,” he says of continuing to make upcycled wares while also experimenting with other facets of design. “I also want to branch out more into high fashion, and become better at my craft.” He says that right now there’s a kind of niche market for his work given the brand’s streetwear aesthetic, adding, “I want to make pieces you can wear everywhere.”
