Passengers travelling through Dublin Airport’s T2 can enjoy The Loop revamp. The final element of the upgrade is a new beauty hall, which is Ireland’s largest at 944sq metres. It offers 90 brands, including 30 new brands, across categories of fragrance, skincare, makeup and hair care.


It showcases global favourites and niche brands such as Ireland’s first Maison Christian Dior boutique, Byredo, Nars and hourglass. There are innovative new digital try-on tools and shade-matching technology at makeup counters, to provide a bespoke experience, skincare consultations are now available at Clarins, La Mer and Clinique; an engraving service is available at Estée Lauder and M.A.C; while personalisation on fragrances is offered exclusively at Le Labo. This is also the first travel retailer globally to house haircare innovators, Living Proof and luxury beauty brand, hourglass Cosmetics.


The new T2 Beauty Hall opened at the end of October and passengers enjoyed a host of exclusive beauty experiences and treats to mark the occasion, including live body painting demos by M.A.C. artists and a special calligraphy event hosted by Jo Malone London.


The completion of the new beauty hall follows an overhaul of The Loop’s entire facilities within T2, as a new confectionary department opened recently, and a new flagship liquor store began trading last summer. The new-look confectionery department in The Loop at T2 has a special emphasis on luxury chocolates from home and abroad. The new Chocolatier Collection celebrates the finest Irish chocolatiers, including Butlers, Lír, Lily O’Briens, The Chocolate Garden and Skellig’s Chocolate, as well as Belgian maestros Guylian and Leonidas. In addition, travel favourites such as Kinder and Toblerone and Irish brands such as Mileeven Honey and The Lismore Food Company are available.


Buyers across the new The Loop at T2 have actively sourced brands and products that are taking steps towards sustainable production and offer vegan-friendly beauty with brands such as bareMinerals, Toofaced and REN, as well as vegan-friendly products by hourglass Cosmetics and Pestle & Mortar.


Sustainable practices extend beyond beauty to Belgian chocolatier, Leonidas which sources cocoa from its own cocoa plantation, where free education and healthcare is provided to its workers and their families. Meanwhile, Guylian has spearheaded ‘Project Seahorse’ – an initiative dedicated to preserving seahorses, their habitats and other marine life globally.
