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.


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.
