DROP IT LIKE IT’S HOT

Meet beauty’s take on DIY — BIY! Cre­ate the cov­er­age that you want with Clin­ique’s BIY Blend It Your­self Pig­ment Drops, $85. Add the de­sired num­ber of drops to your mois­turiser (1 = sheer cov­er­age, 2 = medium, and 3 = fuller) and blend be­fore ap­ply­ing your cus­tom flawless base. Win­ter got you look­ing too pale for your favourite foun­da­tion? Don’t bother buy­ing a new shade; be mis­matched no more with Aus­tralis’ Match­maker Shade Ad­just­ing Drops, $24.99. They come in both light and dark so you can eas­ily ad­just, no mat­ter the sea­son.

SLEEP­ING BEAUTY While you’re young, it’s im­por­tant to pre­vent age­ing as much as poss — and sleep­ing on a silk pil­low­case can do just that. Go-to’s Face Case, $70, is hypoallergenic, made from 100% Mul­berry silk and, un­like a cot­ton case, elim­i­nates fric­tion be­tween your face and the pil­low, re­sult­ing in less face creases come morn­ing and fewer per­ma­nent wrin­kles in your fu­ture.

Ac­tress, mu­si­cian and fash­ion muse Char­lotte Gains­bourg has col­lab­o­rated with Nars to cre­ate an e†or­t­less makeup col­lec­tion that em­bod­ies her chic and min­i­mal­ist per­sonal style — some­thing we’re cer­tain she gained from be­ing style icon Jane Birkin’s daugh­ter. We love the Mul­ti­ple Tint, $62, a ra­di­ant and ut­terly for­give­able lip and cheek for­mula that pro­vides a sub­tle Œush of colour in sheer berry, poppy red and light pink shades. For a berry-bit­ten pout, ap­ply a swipe of the Lip Tint in Prom­ise, $41, to the cen­tre of the lip and dab away any ex­cess. The col­lec­tion launches May 30 at Mecca Cos­met­ica and Mecca Max­ima.

Hav­ing a good hair day every day — even when trav­el­ling — just be­came doable thanks to the new ghd Wan­der­lust col­lec­tion. Don’t com­pro­mise by us­ing use­less ho­tel hairdry­ers; take along the ul­ti­mate travel com­pan­ion that is the Travel Hairdryer, $119. It is way lighter than tra­di­tional hairdry­ers yet still prom­ises 85 per­cent of the power, and the han­dle folds down for easy pack­ing. Your per­fectly mane­tained in­ter­na­tional In­sta­grams will thank you for it.
