Beauty: Maximal and Minimal

The mood in beauty has never been more polarised. At one end of the spectrum, bold, theatrical looks – once the preserve of avant-garde editorial and edgy, urban stars – have become an increasingly popular choice for mainstream consumers. At the other, a pared-back aesthetic, radical in its very minimalism, emerges as a counterpoint, demanding a new approach to skincare and cosmetics.

From the catwalk to the beauty counter, via inspirations from both the red carpet and the web, Stylus surveys the two faces of contemporary beauty.
