Not all lashes are the same. That’s why it’s important to know your way around the mascara section of your local cosmetics store. From short, stumpy lashes to long, straight hairs, using the right wand and formula for your lash type is like finding the right shoes for that outfit.

Lip balm

Maintaining healthy lips is all about finding the best lip balm and sticking to it. A lip balm that has SPF with key nourishing ingredients to help hydrate and moisturise your pout, a minty flavour to help freshen breath and a tint to give lips that just-bitten natural look, is a definite must-have.

Make-up Remover

Eyeliner is a basic part of an eye-makeup design because it shapes and defines the eyes and makes the eyelashes look thicker.
