Beauty Q& A

Cosmopolitan (Australia) - - Contents -

Q: I’M AFTER A NEW MAS­CARA. GOT ANY­THING GREAT I SHOULD TRY? A:

Mas­caras land on our desks all the time so it takes some­thing spe­cial for us to swoon. These two get high scores. The Revlon Mega Mul­ti­plier Mas­cara, $21.95,

ticks boxes with its rinse- off for­mula, mak­ing it per­fect for sen­si­tive eyes, while Mecca Max

Eye Max Power Cou­ple Mas­cara from Mecca, $ 38,

wins points for its pre- mas­cara mi­cro­brush, which gets at the tiny, hard- to- catch lashes.

Q: GOT AC HEAT’ S WAY TO FULL, NAT­U­RAL­LOOK­ING B ROWS?

A: En­list a brow pow­der. It will fluff up your brows, mak­ing them look big­ger. We love Ben­e­fit Fool­proof Brow Pow­der, $ 42. If you need to add a brow gel, ex­perts ad­vise ap­ply­ing before your brow pow­der to keep your arches full.

Q: HELP! MY SKIN IS TOXIC AND I HAVE SPOTS. A: Clear out your pores with detox­i­fy­ing washes and masks.

We love the new

L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Detox­i­fy­ing Gel Wash, $14.99. Spiked with three spe­cial clays, this cleanser has char­coal to draw out im­pu­ri­ties and give skin a pre- wash glow. We’re also slather­ing on

Kate Somerville Eradi-Kate Mask, $ 79.

It foams up on the skin to re­move dirt with­out drying you out.

Q: I LOVE FOUN­DA­TION BUT I NEED ONE THAT WON’ T IR­RI­TATE MY SEN­SI­TIVE SKIN. OP­TIONS?

A: Skin can be ir­ri­tated by added fra­grance and ad­di­tives, so look for for­mu­la­tions with kindto- skin in­gre­di­ents and no added nas­ties. We love new Nude By Na­ture Flawless Liq­uid Foun­da­tion, $ 39.95, and Flawless Con­cealer, $24.95. With no added nas­ties ( think parabens, sil­i­cone, talc and sul­phate) and added skin- nour­ish­ing Kakadu plum and lilly pilly, these nat­u­ral for­mu­la­tions de­liver flaw­less­ness and good­ness in equal parts.

Q: I’M AL­WAYS LOS­ING MY HAIR BANDS. ANY TIPS FOR ME?

A: We hear you! We’ve found a so­lu­tion to the dis­ap­pear­ing hair- tie dilemma. The Fore Hair Tie Bracelet, $ 59 ( Fore store.com. au), is both good- look­ing ( we love the rose gold) and able to stash a spare hair tie with­out cut­ting off your cir­cu­la­tion. Ge­nius.
