Magic Mascara

Meet the Mirenesse Sexy Secret Weapon 24HR Mascara, $39.50. It’s nourishing, 100 per cent false lash effective, lasts for over 24 hours, washes off with warm water, smudge and sweat proof and comes with a “plastic fantastic” silicone brush that glides evenly over each lash. It’s the bomb!

Perfect Lips

It’s all about mineral make-up at the moment and the Australis Perfection Mineral Lip Gloss, $12.95, does not disappoint. The light, smooth mineral formula includes nature’s finest ingredients such as jojoba and vitamin E for a moisturising effect. The easy-to-use applicator is a gem for clumsy hands too! Grab one from Target, Kmart of pharmacies in a range of colours.

Super Luscious

If you want your lips to stand out more than Lady Ga Ga in a crowd then try Magma Explosion by Thierry Mugler, $48. These are like little pots of gold that promise to make your lips sparkle like never before. The texture is like supple, dry, translucent wax and it can be used on bare lips or over a colour. Definitely one to try!

Bright nails

Just in time for spring this Bright Collection, $19.95 each, from OPI was designed in conjunction with celebrity jean stylist Paige Denim. With cute names such as “Shorts Story”, “A Grape Fit” and “Green-wich Village” these loud lacquers will put you in the mood for the races, the beach or a girly night out!
