Amazing Metallics

Textured nail polishes are great for those of us who want a manicure that lasts for days without needing touched-up. Sparkles and metallic polishes tend to stick better to nails and don't show chips as much as smooth polishes. So the new bargain Barry M Molten Metal Holographic Nail Paints, £3.99 (Superdrug) are perfect for long-lasting colour. They glisten with sparkles and the metallic hues make them almost 3D, so nails don't look flat. There are four Holographic shades - Flare, an ...

Cute Lip Compacts

Lip balm is one of the most important items in our make-up kits. It does so many jobs - keeps lips moisturised and plumped, works a treat on dry patches of skin, smoothes eyebrows and even tames frizzy hair. So we love these Lypsyl Soft Touch Mirror Compacts, which at £4.99 (Superdrug) are a bargain. Soft lip balm and a handy mirror combined is a simple, but brilliant, idea. And there's even a choice of flavours - original, which is a warm oriental scent with orange, lemon and white ...

Try Some Double-Moussing …

While we're not slaves to fashion, we do like to try the occasional trend. And the latest one of double-moussing is a winner in our book. Used during London Fashion Week to give hair extra texture, height and body, the process involves using mousse on hair as normal, styling, then double-layering the mousse for added volume and lasting hold. L'Oréal Professionnel Rebel Push Up Mousse, £12 (lookfantastic.com) is perfect for this. A powder-in-mousse, it gives hair loads of texture, and is ...

Cheaper Than … An Eyelift

We spend a lot of time, money and energy trying to make our eyes look bright, youthful and sparkling. But under-eye puffiness, dark shadows and crow's feet have a nasty habit of showing up anyway. If you've ever fancied having the whole area de-puffed and lifted so you have the eyes of a Barbie doll, check out this fabulous little device. Sensse Eye Massager, £29.99 (Amazon) combines high sonic frequency vibrations with LED light therapy to help with puffiness and dark circles, boosting ...

Perfect Facial For Mother’s Day

Mums need a treat on Mother's Day, and this Facial In A Box by Antonia Burrell, £25 (antoniaburrell.com) is not only cheaper than a salon visit, it's also more personal. The kit comes with cleanser, polisher, plumper, repair, sculpting formula, mask and moisturiser, all small sizes, but more than enough to give your mum a really special pampering afternoon. It looks cute, the products are great quality, and this is better than a bunch of flowers as it means you'll be spending time together. ...

Multi-Tasker Saves Time And Money

Sometimes we just a quick, simple and bargain way to get ourselves out the door in the morning. If you don't have time for primer, concealer, foundation and under-eye illuminator, try a multi-use product like the new L'Oréal Paris Infallible Shaping Stick Foundation, £8.99 (Boots). It's a creamy stick that gives precision application, and is really easy to blend. Just pop it on the areas that need it most, blend with fingertips and you're good to go. Oh, and keep it in your handbag for ...

Customised Foundation For £4

We've always struggled with the eight-shades-suit-all foundation concept - surely there are more than eight shades of skin in the world?! That's why we're in favour of ways to change your foundation so it's bespoke for you and perfectly works with your skin colour, changing it if need be for different times of the year. Or even different times of the day. MUA Pro Custom Colour Foundation Mixer, £4 (Superdrug) comes in Lightening and Darkening versions, and it just takes a couple of drops to ...

Winter-Proofing For Hair

The rain, wind, cold temperatures and even a bit of snow aren't great for hair, which can look pretty bedraggled at this time of year. The quickest and most effective way of breathing new life back into hair is with a hair mask - it has all the nutrients you need in bucketloads and intensely hydrates and conditions hair. The new Garnier Ultimate Blends Argan Oil and Almond Cream Dry Hair Treatment Mask is on offer at Boots at the moment for £3.35 - from tomorrow it will be £4.99, which ...

Wake Up To Springtime!

It's about time we had some brightness in our lives, and this lovely bargain box of Bathing Flowers from Heathcote & Ivory, £10 (heathcote-ivory.com) is just what we need. In a new fragrance combination of Neroli and Lime Leaves, it shouts spring - and even, whisper it, a little glimmer of summer. Bathing flowers are fantastic value - you only need a few petals, not even a full flower, to have a relaxing, scented bath. And this bright, zesty scent will have you springing into life. ...

A Diamond Of A Collection

We were never huge fans of metallic make-up until last summer, when some gorgeous formulas began appearing that are more subtle than shimmering and more flattering than fantasy. This new Barry M Crushed Jewel Cream Eyeshadow, £4.99 (Boots) is just lovely. In eight shades, it has a creamy consistency that won't crease if it's worn over eyeshadow primer. It's not too garish or glittery, and just lifts the eyes enough to make them glimmer and sparkle. Our favourite shade is this Twilight mauve ...

Pretty Multi-Taskers

We all love a bobble - from being little girls, most of us will have used a hair tie hundreds of times. And how often do you slip one round your wrist for when it's needed? We love these from Eloise London - they have a great selection of hair ties that also make sweet bracelets. And at just £4.90 (byeloiselondon.com), you can afford a couple to stack them on your wrist and pop them into hair when you need to. Just the thing to cheer us up on a dreary January day ...

Customise Your Look

Skin is naturally paler at this time of year than in the summer, or even in the spring, but it doesn't mean having to fork out for different foundation shades. There are some great customising drops around, and these new ones from GOSH are some of the best we've found. In five shades for different needs, Mix & Fix, £9.99 (Superdrug) are brilliant for instantly changing the colour of foundation, concealer or tinted moisturiser. The key is to add a little at a time until you get the ...
