If you spend any time on social media, you’ve probably seen the quiet luxury hashtag doing the rounds. This fad started in the fashion world and quickly evolved into a larger lifestyle trend that also includes beauty. It’s all about spending more but investing in fewer quality items that look as good as they work and feel.
Want to get on the quiet luxury bandwagon? Here are the premium products we recommend.
1. A bubble bath
There are few things in life as luxurious as slipping into a steamy tub. The only thing that can make it better is a glass of wine on the side and the addition of bubbles. This bath and shower gel by Molton Brown has notes inspired by the Arabian Desert. It also contains a shimmer which is left on your skin afterwards for a gorgeous all-over glow.
2. A classic lipstick
You don’t need to wear a lot of make-up to look expensive. You just need to invest in the right one. For this trend, it’s got to be a flattering lip colour in a comfortable-to-wear formula. This one by Bobbi Brown delivers maximum colour and contains ingredients that nourish and repair your lips while you wear it. It also comes in a bougie gold tube.
3. A silky moisturiser
Moisturiser is a crucial step in any skincare routine. There are a lot of them to choose from, but this lifestyle trend requires one that feels good and delivers results. For this, you really can’t beat this rich caviar-infused cream by La Prairie. By using this day and night, it will gradually make your skin appear more youthful, firm and lifted. Apparently, fancy food makes for fancy moisturiser!
4. An energising eye mask
We all have to work hard to afford what we have. This trend requires that even if you work hard, you don’t look like you do! Our eyes are the first giveaway as they can become puffy with dark circles. Banish them and soothe this delicate area with these stick-on eye masks by Skin Republic. Leave them on for as long as possible to get the best results.
5. A statement nail polish
In order to look elegant, you have to look well put together. This means that your nails should be neat, however long they may be. They should also be manicured, with red being a popular choice of colour. That’s because this shade, especially ones with orange undertones like this lacquer by DIOR, is universally flattering. This hue can also make your hands appear more youthful.
6. A dreamy sleep mask
Did you know that beauty sleep is a real thing? While we are sleeping, our skin cells regenerate and old ones are shed. The skincare products we apply at night can play an important role in this process. One to consider that can also elevate your bedtime routine is a sleep mask, like this creamy cult classic by Sisley Paris. You’ll wake up radiant and refreshed.
7. An all-in-one elixir
When it comes to luxury beauty brands, few of them are more prestigious than La Mer. This serum is one of their best because it feels amazing on the skin and produces noticeable results. It is designed to strengthen your skin’s protective barrier and soothe your complexion. Take it up a notch by using it along with gua sha tools for a relaxing facial massage.
8. A signature scent
As this trend contains the word “quiet”, fragrances should be cosy and familiar but understated. Strong, loud scents can have the opposite effect and be offensive. This is why this beloved cologne by Jo Malone London is a great pick. It’s a unisex scent with timeless appeal and contains citrus, marine and soft musk notes. Spritz it on your pulse points for an instant mood boost.
