Cheaper Than A Designer Dress …

We all need a little designer treat in our lives from time to time, but if you can't afford the couture dress you want, a cheaper way of owning a label is to treat yourself to a bottle of scent.

Under the directorship of Sarah Burton - who designed the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress - this is a glorious piece of luxury. The scent is based on night flowers ...

How To Clean Skin Gently

Cleansing oil is one of the best ways of removing make-up at the end of the day. The oil breaks down make-up, attracting dirt and impurities like a magnet and lifting them off the face in one sweep. The new Simple Cleansing Oil, £6.99 (Boots) is a great bargain. Made from 100 per cent natural grapeseed oil, you only need a small amount to remove make-up. Adding a little water turns it milky and makes it go even further. A couple of tips - never use oil to remove eye make-up as it's ...

Layer Those Lashes

We use primer before everything these days ... foundation, eyeshadow, lipstick ... so why not use it to enhance mascara? We've been using a lash primer for a while now, and it makes a huge difference to the look of lashes. It stops mascara clumping, makes it last longer and keeps the colour true. We love this new Autograph Lash Primer, £15 (marksandspencer.com) which is a rich black and great value for money. It's also perfect if you want a pared-down look - use it on its own and it ...

Cushion Colour At A Great Price

If you've never tried a 'cushion foundation', give it a go. Seriously, it's brilliant. So easy to apply, and it covers every single blemish, but allows skin to shine through so it doesn't look like a mask. Lots of premium brands have launched their own, but we've found this little Max Factor gem, which at £12.99 (Boots) is a real bargain. Miracle Touch comes in five shades, and contains a cushion-type sponge which soaks up the foundation and applies it evenly to skin. It has the coverage ...

Sweet-Smelling Shampoo

We don't often think about how shampoo smells - it's more about how it volumises, thickens or conditions. However, now we've thought about it, shampoo that smells amazing seems like a jolly good idea. Charles Worthington has paid great attention to scent in the new hair collections. Each range contains FragranceLock Technology, which basically binds the scent to each hair strand, so the scent lasts all day. It's not overpowering, so it won't clash with perfume, it just smells clean and ...

It's a tissue mask, so really easy to use - just pop in on exfoliated skin, sit back and relax, and when you peel it off you'll notice fine lines and ...
