The goal: Dramatic definition
The find: ANNABELLE® Black Kohl Liner
A swipe of kohl eyeliner is the easiest way to bring attention to your eyes, either alone or smudged over your favourite shadow. Available in stunning matte, metallic and chrome finishes, the long-lasting pencil glides on with ease and won’t budge or bleed.
The goal: Crease-proof colour
The find: Rimmel London Wonder’Cloud Eye Shadow
To prevent your shadow from travelling into nooks and crannies, opt for a stay-all-day formula such as this pick from Rimmel London. The plush whipped texture blends beautifully, plus it’s waterproof and formulated with a built-in primer, so there’s no need for touch-ups.
The goal: Look-at-me-lashes
The find: L’Oréal Paris Cosmetics Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara in Blackest Black
For lashes that make a statement, opt for a formula that offers exceptional volume and length while keeping eyelashes soft and supple, like this gem from L’Oréal Paris. Crafted with over 200 bristles to catch every hair and formulated with a smooth-glide formula for your silkiest lashes yet, this mascara will make a major impression.
The goal: Luscious lips
The find: Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipstick
Loaded with nourishing ingredients like vitamin E and avocado oil, this iconic lipstick from Revlon offers maximum colour payoff without drying your lips. Choose from a variety of highly pigmented shades and finishes — crème, matte, pearl or sheer — for a lustrous, kissably soft pout, no matter the occasion.
The goal: A flawless finish
The find: NYX Dewy Finish Make Up Setting Spray
For longer-lasting makeup that’s truly radiant, ditch the powder and complete your routine with a spritz of glow-getting setting spray. This lightweight pick from NYX offers an illuminated finish that enhances your foundation while feeling weightless on the skin.
The goal: Salon-worthy shine
The find: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel™ Nail Polish
Breathe life into your at-home nail routine with a long-lasting polish, like this standout formula from Sally Hansen. (We love the dusty pink shade “Rose & Shine.”) Complete the look with a coat of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel™ Top Coat, which has an easy-to-remove, chip-resistant formula that mimics the look of a gel manicure sans all the fuss. The result? Durable, high-shine nails that beg to be admired.
