We’re always on the search for new and interesting makeup brands, and more often than not we’re using something, not from the UK. So, here are some of the German makeup brands you need on your radar and thankfully you can get these all pretty easy in the UK too.


Zoe Boikou found the German cosmetics brand in 2008, and since then it has gone from strength-to-strength. The brand started with just 10 brushes for makeup application. Now you can shop more than 50 makeup tools, to guarantee perfect makeup application every time. There's also makeup from the brand too which comes in 100 colours.

Their brushes are highly acclaimed because of their quality and softness, but their makeup products are just as good too, including vibrant eyeshadows, silky blushes and creamy lipsticks.

You can shop Zoeva on and Selfridges.

Healthy and radiant skin is the core philosophy of the Eucerin products, so we imagine pretty much everyone is going to love using them. Tested to the highest dermatological standards, these are products you'll go back to time and time again, quite simply because they work, and they work really well.

When shopping Eucerin you'll notice that there are standout products you'll want, but you can also buy into their tailored routines which target specific skin concerns you might have.


Eucerin is available to buy at Boots, Escentual and Look Fantastic in the UK.
