So many beauty e-tailers have sprung up in the past 10 years that it's hard to know where to start if you're looking to buy cosmetics online. Luckily, we've found the perfect site and to celebrate, we've teamed up with The Beauty Kit to give one lucky Irish Tatler the chance to win the ultimate beauty hamper worth over €150.
When it comes to shopping for beauty, we know how important it can be to swatch everything. After all, there’s no better way to find your perfect foundation shade, or test whether a particular red lipstick hue brightens your skin tone. However, with the current global pandemic, swatching is officially cancelled due to the risk it holds of spreading coronavirus. What's worse, is thanks to the level five restrictions that are currently in place, you can no longer pop to your nearest makeup counter or pharmacy to stock up on your beauty essentials.
That's exactly where beauty websites come in. Once reserved for fashion and homewares, there is now a whole host of makeup and skincare website which have better shade-matching tools than ever meaning you can easily shop for products with confidence. (And if you slightly miss the mark, most places give you the option to exchange or return.) Aside from allowing you the luxury of shopping from the comfort of your couch or bed, there’s an undeniable convenience factor associated with ordering a moisturiser or mascara with the touch of a button.
The only difficult part? Knowing where to look. So many beauty e-tailers have sprung up in the past 10 years that it's hard to know where to start and who you can trust if you're looking to buy cosmetics online. Cue The Beauty Kit.
