NEXT (New Zealand) - - At A Glance -

LISA MAT­SON LU­CAS PAPAW OINTMENT, $12 This is my go-to when I need to deal to dry lips and skin while on a job. It works quickly with dra­matic re­sults. I even use it some­times to give skin and eye makeup a high sheen fin­ish or to smooth dry hair ends. L’ORÉAL PARIS MAGIC RE­TOUCH, $20 This has been a life-saver for some of my clients. Once hair is styled and set it’s just a mat­ter of spray­ing the right shade to the ar­eas where greys and/or re­growth can be seen.

JULES ARMISHAW MAY­BELLINE NEW YORK GREAT LASH MAS­CARA, $15 I love the great wand on this mas­cara; you can really give lashes a good coat. It’s quite wet, which gives an even coat from roots to ends and helps to ex­tend lashes. BATISTE DRY SHAM­POO, $12 Spray your roots for an in­stant quick fix for vol­ume and tex­ture. It now comes in dif­fer­ent shades so you don’t get vis­i­ble prod­uct in your hair.

LAU­REN GUNN ARDELL BROW BUILD­ING FIBER GEL, $22 This is one of my favourites be­cause the tones are cool and ashy, mim­ick­ing nat­u­ral brow shades well. It has a good ap­pli­ca­tor and stays silky on your brow. REVLON PHOTOREADY EYE ART LID + LINE + LASH, $23.50 Such a steal, with two com­ple­men­tary colours in each tube. The wands make it easy to ap­ply, al­though I often use my fin­ger­tips. The tex­ture is silky so it can be eas­ily blended and lay­ered.

CHAY ROBERTS MAC STROBE CREAM, $25 I love to ap­ply this be­fore foun­da­tion to give the skin a sub­tle ra­di­ance. On the high points of the face it al­lows the skin to ap­pear more glow­ing but not greasy look­ing. LA GIRL PRO COV­ER­AGE FOUN­DA­TION, $22.50 The brand as a whole is great but I’m par­tic­u­larly im­pressed with their foun­da­tion. The light­weight for­mu­la­tion gives a light to medium cov­er­age with a slight satin fin­ish.

FIONA GOD­DARD MARIO BADESCU FA­CIAL SPRAY WITH ALOE, CU­CUM­BER AND GREEN TEA, $10 You can use this to re­fresh and hy­drate bare skin, or to set the makeup once fin­ished to give a beau­ti­ful dewy ef­fect. MECCA MAX SUN­LIT SKIN BRONZ­ING POW­DER IN LIGHT, $24 A great shade that won’t make you look or­ange! Easy to blend and comes in light, medium and dark so you can find a shade to suit your skin tone.
