Fash­ion for­ward

They say Coco Chanel wore white camel­lia accessories be­cause they re­flected pure light on to her skin. But for a woman with more than a few idio­syn­cra­sies, Chanel cer­tainly proved to be one of the most in­flu­en­tial beauty lu­mi­nar­ies of her time. In­te­gral to her her­itage was that she knew how to pick (and cre­ate) a trend, a skill the House of Chanel cer­tainly didn’t lose when she died nearly five decades ago. The brand’s lat­est col­lec­tion in­cludes enam­els, lip­sticks and shadow shades beau­ti­fully matched to the sea­son and all em­i­nently cov­etable. Why buy? As if treat­ing your­self with a luxe beauty prod­uct wasn’t a good enough rea­son.

Faux glo

There may be less sun in win­ter to cre­ate a tan but that doesn’t mean you’re re­quired to walk around look­ing like you’ve stepped from the pages of the Vam­pire Chron­i­cles. Bondi Sands’ three-prod­uct GLO col­lec­tion is the lat­est in a line-up of faux tan­ners from the Aussie brand to add a pretty even glow to pale win­ter skin. Choose from ei­ther a matte or shimmery one-day tan­ner topped off with Glo Gloss Fin­ish­ing Glow, a makeup-like high­lighter that cre­ates a bronzed, dewy look. All prod­ucts are $23 and on counter this month.

Why buy? In­vest in nat­u­ral-look­ing lu­mi­nos­ity from the world’s best-sell­ing self-tan brand.
