Fast-track your way to looking preened and party-ready with these top 5 beauty buys...
1. The emergency basic: , £65
Foundation patchy? Skin a bit dry? Brows need taming? Look no further than this rich, herb-scented balm, which is also perfect for massage, travelling, mixing with moisturiser and generally over-achieving in every skincare category.
2. The glow-anywhere skin highlighter: , £34
3. The light limb smoother: , £38
If body lotion feels like a to-do too far in your daily beauty checklist, try this one. It’s a serum, so it’s lighter and needs a lot less rubbing in, while the antioxidant-rich formula means more pay-off for your efforts. Expect legs and arms to look lovelier in a matter of days.
4. The does-it-all hair must-have: , £29 for 50ml
Hair oils are the new serums and leave-in conditioners rolled into one. Thanks to their modern, non-greasy formulas, they’ve become a product we can’t imagine our hair without. This one is especially lightweight and makes a useful, pre-wash conditioning treatment, too.
5. The perfect everyday nail polish: , £18
Work-appropriate, elegant and chicer than a true nude, mink is our favourite new neutral, and Chanel’s Frenzy is our favourite version. It’s luxe-y, the shade is spot-on and it suits absolutely everyone.
