Cargo Suited to a Tea Set
At first glance, Cargo’s Suited to a Tea Set appears to be another palette of cream-based eyeshadows. But looks can be deceiving, because rest assured, this palette is so much more. Press shades like Bloomsbury into lips and top with gloss to create DIY custom shades for lips that wear from day to night. That’s not all; pink powders can be used to give cheeks a flirty flush. Now that’s something to blush about.

Tweezerman Eyenhance Brow Definer and Highlighter
The art of achieving Lily Collins-quality brows takes more than a heavy-duty brow pencil. In fact, behind every bold brow is a soft highlight placed strategically to define statement arches. Tweezerman’s Eyenhance Brow Definer and Highlighter Duo is a dual ended pencil wizard that offers two-for-one defining and highlighting benefits. It comes complete with a sharpener, which you will need for regular use.

Philosophy Amazing Grace Multi-Tasking Oil
This is one philosophy we recommend embracing. For all its natural conditioning oils, this multi-tasking oil will you have you singing “Amazing Grace.” In true double beauty form, this product can be used in the bath or on the body to moisturize skin. Wear it on its own as a sweet floral musk fragrance, and if that’s not enough, the oil works just as well on hair. Run a drop of oil through strands for maximum shine.

Revlon – Base & Polish
We all know better than to take shortcuts with nail care, but ColorStay Gel Envy Longwear Nail Enamel covers colour and care in a single bottle. Polish-wearers will want to get their hands on their 1 colour + 1 base system, which speeds up the painting process with its double-serving colour plus base formula. While choosing from these shades is no easy task, we suggest taking a cue from the white manis spotted on the Spring/Summer 2014 Band of Outsiders, Calla and Prabal Gurung runways.
