Beauty buzz: Colour news

Hair-raising innovations you need to know about:

GENTLE: Garnier Olia $16.99 (1) is the first home hair colour powered by oil rather than ammonia. The result is 100% grey coverage and shinier, healthier locks.

LUMINOUS: Wella Professionals Illumina

Color (2) promises hair

with 70% more light reflection for a sheer, natural and amazingly shiny look. This one is salon only.

CASH SAVER: Schwarzkopf New Ultimate Colour $25.99 (3) is the first multi-usage home colour foam. There’s no mixing required and you can store the unused product until you need it again for a root touch up.

COPPER LOAD OF THIS

While black eyeliner can look harsh, copper browns are almost universally flattering.

On my hit list at the moment is MAC Powerchrome Eye Pencil in Copper Strip $48. This chunky, super-soft pencil with a metallic finish is ideal for drawing a thicker line or filling in the whole lid. Or, for the natural option, try Eye öf Hörus Bronze Amulet Goddess Pencil $39, a subtle, non-metallic bronze/brown that stays in place all day.
