It’s the new year and more newness is set to arrive, all reported here in our Best of Beauty for January 2024. We kickstarted the year with exciting news on the innovations front. The Consumer Electronics Show 2024 (CES 2024) in Las Vegas, Nevada brought to light several great beauty gizmos that had us stunned with awe—did you know we can dry our hair with light?— and reworking our beauty wish list.

It’s also awards season, so we’ve been showered with plenty of inspiration from celebrities on and off of the red carpet. We all saw how smoothly Rosamund Pike manoeuvred around a ski accident and arrived at the 2024 Golden Globes looking like a million bucks anyway, right? The Critics Choice Awards was not short on hot beauty looks either, with Dua Lipa leading the charge with her red-on-red look that’s essentially just the ‘Tomato Girl Summer’ trend on overdrive.

In preparation for more festivities, we’re also bookmarking these Chinese New Year 2024 beauty drops that have graced us with their arrivals. The brands are going all out this year, so you’ll be seeing the mythical creature embellished onto unique, limited edition packaging that will be a classic treasure to keep for years to come, or even gift it to friends and family born in the Year of the Dragon. Expect iconic Lancome products dressed up with London-based Chinese artist Jacky Tsai designs, Rituals’ apt The Legend of the Dragon collection, and more to be included in the roundup.
