Our top picks for April.

1. You could ap­ply Physi­cians For­mula Mu­ru­muru But­ter High­lighter in Cham­pagne ($11) with a brush, but then you wouldn’t get to en­joy its se­ri­ously ad­dic­tive suede­like tex­ture. 2. Dior For­ever Un­der­cover 24H Full Cov­er­age Foun­da­tion ($64) is the most pig­mented foun­da­tion the brand has ever re­leased. To max­i­mize cov­er­age, pat onto blem­ishes be­fore smooth­ing out over skin. 3. Hair­styl­ist Frédéric Fekkai’s lat­est en­deav­our is Bastide, a 25-year-old beauty brand he ac­quired in his home­town in the south of France. While the hand lo­tion is di­vine, the Huile Seche Epatante Dry Oil Mist ($68) is not to be missed. 4. We call this our “If I wear it, sum­mer will come” shade. Ap­ply one coat for a sheer wash of colour and then layer for more depth. Clove + Hal­low Lip Crème Lip­stick in Flam­ing Coral ($25). 5. There is al­ways one shade in your pal­ette you use up faster than the oth­ers. Smash­box has iden­ti­fied that, dou­bled it, added two com­ple­men­tary hues and pack­aged it all in a shape that doesn’t take up your en­tire purse. Photo Edit Eye­shadow Trio in Show­mance ($26). 6. Find­ing the right shade of nude nail pol­ish is al­ways a strug­gle (so many un­der­tones to con­sider). Luck­ily, CND has added four new hues to its lineup. This is our favourite of the bunch. Viny­lux Weekly Pol­ish in Un­masked ($12.50). 7. Don’t be put off by the cush­ion­tip ap­pli­ca­tor of this lip­stick from Dutch makeup artist Ellis Faas. It’s as sim­ple to ap­ply as any an­gu­lar tube, and it’s as com­fort­able as it looks. Hot Lips Lip­stick ($47.25). 8. “I couldn’t un­der­stand why [makeup brushes] were the ugly child of the fam­ily,” says makeup artist Matthew Waite­smith, so he founded Ar­tis, a luxe brush line de­signed to be er­gonomic for per­sonal use, high per­form­ing and de­cid­edly gor­geous to look at. Flu­enta 5 Brush Set ($305; Oval 6 brush pic­tured). For de­tails, see Shop­ping Guide.
