From an anti-aging miracle that perks you up in the blink of an eye to miracle fibres that plump up thinning hair: introducing the smart beauty breakthroughs to give you a confidence boost this summer
The instant eye lift
If you’re bored of waiting days, weeks – or even months – for skin-care results, Ren’s Instant Brightening Beauty Shot Eye Lift is the answer to your prayers. Turbo-charged with two types of hyaluronic acid, it works like a push-up bra for eyes, helping lift, brighten and tighten.
The smog-fighting foundation
Heads up, city dwellers – experts agree pollution is the new skin-ageing baddie that can cause wrinkles before your time. With an anti-smog filter and SPF30, Bourjois’ City Radiance Foundation keeps your complexion one step ahead, while the lightweight skin-perfecting base lets skin breathe.
The thinning hair cover-up
Desperately seeking a volume boost for fine or thinning hair? Meet Viviscal’s Conceal & Densify Volumising Fibres. Available in three shades, these tiny electrostatically charged fibres stick to strands giving you thicker, fuller hair in just 30 seconds – plus they withstand wind and rain. Genius.
The next-gen mani
Love the staying power of a gel mani but hate the hassle of a salon visit to remove it? Cue Barry M’s Sunset Nail Paints. Pick from nine super-shiny shades before you apply the hard-as-nails topcoat (sold separately). The paint sets to a gel-like finish in daylight, so it’s easy to remove with your everyday nail polish remover.
