Melanie Morris discovers a new haul of make-up?and skincare heroes this May.

GET LASHED!

Did you know mascara is actually a creamy white shade before pigment is added? At least, it was, until the labs at YSL Beaute? got busy, and created a totally clear product, changing the game for coloured ones. This month, the Paris beauty house launches a collection of nine jewel-toned mascaras, €35 each, to bring lustre to lashes. Choose from rose pink, violet, emerald green, gold, silver, blue, turquoise, brown … or inky, pitch black, or combine different shades on the top and lower decks for a flash of brilliance.

BRUSH LOVE

Fuschia is on fire right now! With a storm of new launches, it’s standout is the limited edition smart black leather barrell of 15 roffessional brushes, €75. Totally transportable, it sorts you for every make-up eventuality.

A BRIGHT NEW DAWN

Clean, groomed hair, or an extra half hour in bed? We’ll take both, thanks to Shu Uemura’s fab new Color Lustre Dry Cleaner. This spray product acts like dry shampoo, without any powder or nasty telltale odour. It freshens, banishes oiliness and adds sheen, texture and volume, but with none of the usual heavy stiffness other products leave behind. An impressive reinvention of the category and essential for the car, desk, or handbag; you will truly wonder how you survived without this gem; €27 from Shu Uemura salons.

TAKE A BROW

Get your brows waxed at any participating Benefit counter nationwide, or at the South William Street store in Dublin through May, and all Benefit’s profits will go to two amazing charities as part of their Bold is Beautiful initiative: Daisy House and Look Good Feel Better. What’s more, the ????????owner of each pair of freshly-groomed brows receives a free, full-size Gimme Brow grooming/colouring product (worth €25.50) to stay on fleek.

NATURALLY DOES IT

This spring seems to have been all about masks, and our love continues with Origins By All Greens Foaming Mask, €36, which is so much fun, it’s almost like a party trick. Apply the freshly-foamed mix of supergreens, clay and coconut-derived cleansers and then leave it to work its magic. Over about ten minutes, the formula removes visible and invisible environmental nasties, unplugs pores, and gently deep cleans the face. Then washoff for a super- soft, squeaky-clean and clear complexion.
