BEAUTY OIL

They fell out of fash­ion in the ’60s but are back with a vengeance. Mainly be­cause they can be used on the face, body and even hair. Top-qual­ity oils are also won­der­ful for smooth­ing rough cu­ti­cles. TRY: (1) The Jo­joba Com­pany 100% Nat­u­ral Aus­tralian Jo­joba ($19.95, the­jo­joba­com­pany. com.au)

TONERS

Toners are used post cleans­ing to re­move residue. They’re also de­signed to help skin re­turn to its nat­u­ral pH bal­ance. This means any serums and/or creams that you ap­ply will be bet­ter able to pen­e­trate the skin and be more ef­fec­tive. Some toners also con­tain pow­er­ful es­sen­tial oils de­signed to boost feel­ings of well­be­ing. Win-win.

TRY: (3) Musq An­tiox­i­dant Toner ($40, musq.com.au)

LIP­STICK

Ev­ery­one looks bet­ter with a pop of colour on the lips and cheeks. A pinky rose is flat­ter­ing on all skin tones and one prod­uct can be used for both. Choose a cream­based ver­sion so that lips re­main soft and smooth. Ap­ply to the ap­ples of the cheeks and blend. Swipe on the lips, press to­gether and then pat with a fin­ger. TRY: (4) Char­lotte Til­bury Beach Stick in Moon Beach ($55, char­lot­tetil­bury.com/au)

SHIM­MER

A touch of shim­mer along the brow bone and the high points of the cheeks is both flat­ter­ing and on trend. For a nat­u­ral look, swap the pressed-pow­der high­lighters for a touch of lip balm in­stead (yes, se­ri­ously) and then ap­ply to the lips too. Re­mem­ber, a lit­tle goes a long way. TRY: (5) Go-To (Pinky-Nudey) Lips! ($17, go­to­skin­care.com)

PRIMERS

Primers are a must if you want skin to ap­pear with­out flaws such as vis­i­ble pores, fine lines or sun spots. Some con­tain light-re­flect­ing par­ti­cles for a sweet glow, oil-ab­sorb­ing par­ti­cles to re­duce shine and ac­tive in­gre­di­ents to fight the signs of age­ing. Oth­ers also in­clude sun­screen. TRY: (6) Colore­science Skin Mat­ti­fy­ing Face Primer SPF20, ($75.90, 1800 648 851)

Cot­ton buds are the ul­ti­mate beauty tools. Use them to blend and smudge eye shadow for a cool smoky look, or to fix any lip­stick mishaps.
