Whether you are looking for evergreen pieces or trendy but affordable, off-the-runway seasonal looks, Zara has it all. With a finger on the pulse of the fashion community, Zara delivers what customers want, when they want it. Following in the footsteps of fast fashion brands like H&M and Topshop, Zara has recently launched a cosmetic line called Zara Beauty. You can now deck yourself out from head to toe, and face to toenails with a full Zara ensemble.
Launched on 12 May in Europe, the US, Canada, Mexico, China, South Korea, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, Zara Beauty will also launch in the Middle East in June 2021. From there, Zara will continue to plot the map with Zara Beauty in their stores worldwide. We don’t have a clue when Zara Beauty will hit our shores, but for now, you can eye them on Zara’s website.
Zara Beauty’s Vision
Zara Beauty was meticulously put together under the creative direction of critically-acclaimed British makeup artist, Diane Kendal. Through her years of working with prestigious brands like Tom Ford and Marc Jacobs, Kendal has developed a makeup ideal that is inclusive and caters to diverse needs.
Inspired by the slogan: “There is no beauty, only beauties”, the campaign featured models of diverse skin tones. This solidifies the message that there is no one interpretation of “beauty”.
Zara Beauty’s Collection
With inclusivity at the heart of Zara Beauty’s launch, they have also made it accessible from a price point perspective. They promise great quality at a steal – the products range from an affordable USD 8 to USD 26.
The launch features an impressive collection consisting of over 130 colours, six lip products (matte lipstick, satin lipstick, demi-matte lipstick, tinted balm, lip oil, lip gloss), six-shade eye-shadow palettes, smaller shadow duos, a matte-black eyeliner, loose metallic pigment, bronzer, blush palettes, highlighter, 39 nail polishes, and six makeup brushes.
