From dolphin skin and fuchsia eyes to 1990s glamour, Brown Thomas’ Planet Beauty Director discusses the new season’s looks

From anything TikTok would throw at us, it’s unlikely any of us saw “dolphin skin” coming. But yes, for F/W 2022 what Vogue described as a look that “harks back to the silky, iridescent skin of these marine mammals” is one of the key beauty trends.

It’s a buzzword, but what it really is is hydrated, radiant and plumped skin—fresh and shiny,” explains Triona McGinley, Beauty Director for Brown Thomas and Arnotts. “It was ‘glass skin’, it was ‘dewy’, now it’s ‘delphin’. Hydration is really important; Look for foundations with a moisturizing formula.”

“Pretty incredible,” she adds with a lopsided smile, which TikTok can throw at us.

The result of McGinley’s expertise, Planet Beauty opens its doors on Dublin’s Clarendon Street on Thursday 13th October. Planet Beauty — which first launched in Brown Thomas Dundrum in early 2022 — is partly a response to what McGinley describes as a customer. “Hungry for new brands”. Post Covid-19, people are better educated about skincare and makeup, she says. “They are more aware of well-being, of caring for their skin.”

With approximately 60 new makeup, skincare and hair products, Planet Beauty is “a fun, educational and experiential product space. A lot of the brands are new, a lot of them are owner-managed, which means they started this business for a reason,” says McGinley. She adds that the creator may find a niche in the market or have a very technical background. She cites a skincare line that evolved from treating burns.

The Planet Beauty team is brand independent. So the starting point is what is best for your skin and not a single product line. “So it’s not totally brand dependent, it’s a mix,” says McGinley. “It’s about expressing yourself.”

When it comes to makeup, glamor is back this season — but McGinley says it’s “more of a toned-down” look. The focus is on the skin and eyes, as seen in the photo shoot on these pages. “People are demanding a softer, smokey brown eye look; a black eyeliner; a purple lip; sculpted cheekbones. It’s dramatic, but not overly dramatic. The glamor of the 1990s is definitely back.”

Fuchsia, as seen all over the F/W 2022 catwalks, can also be seen in beauty trends. “Either on the eyes or on the lips,” says McGinley, adding with a smile, “Mix, mix, mix!

“Definitely the red lip is back. Choose a matte lipstick, and you would use a liquid gloss – it’s a mix of matte and glossy. It gives your lips a natural shine.”

Above all, she says, it’s about experimenting. See what works for you.
