4 ways to customise your own beauty routine
These services cater to *your* top beauty needs
First there was custom-colour makeup that adjusts its shade according to your skin tone once applied (like Ciate London Custom Kiss and Smashbox O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Colour). Now there's a next level of made-for-you beauty, with these four services taking into consideration your wants, needs and biggest beauty concerns before whipping up a customised solution on the spot. Cue better hair and perfectly matched makeup shades that are unique to you.
Kérastase Fusio Dose
There’s never just one hair issue we need help solving, and Kérastase knows that. Whether you need deep nourishing, strengthening and repairing, a more radiant colour with high shine, or a densifying treatment, you have the option to choose two boosters as part of the Kérastase Fusio Dose in-salon treatment. Upon arrival a consultant will have a one-on-one chat with you to find out your biggest hair woes. Then they will recommend a combination of boosters to address your primary and secondary hair concerns. Available exclusively in Kérastase consultant salons, the customised treatment is mixed on the spot and is applied post-shampoo, and only needs to be left in for a few minutes.
Bobbi Brown Palettes
If you love makeup palettes but always find you never even use half the shades, these tailor-made pan palettes are for you. Available in two, three, four or six customisable palettes, you can fill these personalised tins with your favourite eyeshadow and blush shades. Each palette comes with a built-in mirror making it perfect for taking all your must-have colours on the go.
Concoction Couture Hair
If you're still on the hunt for the perfect shampoo that meets the multi-level needs of your hair then it's time to go custom. At Concoction they’re all about providing you with a super shampoo that is made for your hair’s specific needs and wants. Firstly, you get to choose your shampoo base blend of either Black Pepper & Citrus, Lemon & Verbena, Bakhour, or Rosemary & Mint. Next, they add two 10ml super-serum shots to your shampoo, which has been chosen for you depending on whether your hair needs more moisture, a curl booster, added volume or to amp up its colour. Step three is simple – everyone gets given the Cashmere & White Lily Conditioner, which is a nourishing conditioner that’s suitable for all hair types.
The Lip Lab
Despite the thousands of lip shades out there, are you still trying to find that one perfect shade for you? Located in Paddington, Sydney, The Lip Lab is the first company of its kind in Australia to give you a truly customised lip shade. In three steps you can choose from a range of colours, include flavours such as strawberry, blueberry or citrus, and add anything extra like SPF, lip plumping benefits or anti-ageing ingredients. Your consultant makes it right then and there by heating, mixing, and cooling your chosen shades into lipstick moulds. In 15 minutes your custom lip colour is ready to wear.
