Spate’s 2024 Predicted Beauty Trends Report has dropped, detailing the trends, claims, and concerns it predicts will move the needle in skin care, hair, makeup, fragrance, and bath and body care this year. Following CEW’s State of the Industry: Global Trend Report, Spate’s in-depth analysis of the trends to watch is a must-read. Today at CEW, we highlight several forecasted game-changers, including the wellness-meets-beauty trend, as well as consumer craving for foodie fragrances. 

L’Oréal hosted 28 beauty journalists from around the world at The Art & Science of Fragrance event at the Carrousel du Louvre yesterday. The company showcased the storytelling, composition, ingredient sourcing, and sustainable packaging behind its fine fragrance portfolio. “As part of L’Oréal for the Future, our responsibility is to lead the shift toward a more mindful luxury beauty and to create the codes of luxury beauty of tomorrow, pairing desirability and sustainability,” said Marie-Pia Schlumberger, the group’s sustainability director. Speaking of scent, The Fragrance Foundation has announced that Gilles Andrier, CEO of Givaudan, will be honored with the 2024 Hall of Fame Award at its annual awards ceremony in New York City at The Lincoln Center in June.

In Milan, iconic department store Rinascente’s first Beauty Fair is in full swing, featuring a mix of indie and prestige makeup, skin care and fragrance brands. Hosted on the third floor of the flagship store, the event runs through March 11 and features in-store masterclasses, complimentary treatments, and demos.

Closer to home, Sephora has just launched online the Soft Services premium body care range, founded by Rebecca Zhou, and will roll the collection to 300 U.S. stores on Friday. “We are thrilled to partner with Soft Services as we continue to grow this exciting, emerging category of prestige body care,” said Brooke Banwart, Sephora’s SVP of skin care merchandising.

At NYFW, Sandy Liang made a strong beauty statement by sending models down the runway wearing sunscreen, creating a glowing, fresh-faced look while conveying a message the NYC-based designer feels strongly about. “I watch YouTube videos of dermatologists who have taught me so much,” she said. “I think it’s cool to educate people that just because it’s not hot doesn’t mean that you can’t get sun damage.”
