You want Eva Longoria lashes, but getting a full flutter takes time – think
lash-yanking curlers, mascara (make that two coats!) and falsies.
All you now need is 20 seconds with ModelCo’s Turbo Lashwand Heated Eyelash
Curler (right), £22 (available in March).
Place the end of the heated wand at your lash roots, then move it upwards as
if you were applying mascara.
Hold it in place for a killer curl that lasts seven hours. Victoria Beckham’s
a fan of this Aussie best-seller and we can see why.
Unless you’re BFFs with a manicurist (we wish!), the only way to a
Katy-Perry-worthy mani is to use foil transfers that need trimming,
sticking, blasting with a hairdryer for an age, then filing.
Phew, we need to lie down!
Nailease The Instant Manicure Nail Varnish Strips (£5.99 for 20) cut the faff
out of falsies.
Just press a transfer on each nail and file it down so that it’s the right
They last up to 10 days and your regular remover will whip ’em off.
The only thing that used to perk up a dishwater-dull complexion was a
yawn-worthy ritual of cleansing, toning and steaming.
Last year, celebs including Gisele Bündchen were buzzing about the Clarisonic
Classic, £155, an electric brush that gives skin a car-wash-style deep
clean. Now, a travel-sized version, the Clarisonic Mia Sonic Skin Cleansing
System (right), is launching on March 11. At £120 it’s still not cheap, but
it removes six times more make-up than cleansing does. But if your wallet
won’t stretch that far, try Garnier PureActive Exfo-Brusher, £7.65, which
cleans and buffs skin with its nifty built-in bristle applicator.
Highlights are wonder face brighteners – just check out Emily Blunt’s new
caramel do. But the hassle (and cost) of touch-ups every eight weeks doesn’t
brighten our days.
See ya, salon. Spritz John Frieda’s new Go Blonder Controlled Lightening
Spray, £6.99 (left), on damp hair and it’ll disguise growing-out roots. The
brightening formula (a blend of hydrogen peroxide, citrus and chamomile) is
heat-activated, so the more you blow-dry, straighten and curl those tresses,
the lighter you go. Bright on!
