1. Bio-Oil may be famous for making scars and stretch marks disappear, but it can also work wonders on your hair. I use it daily to smooth my top and hydrate my ends. Because it’s dry oil, it gets the job done without weighing hair down or making it greasy. The result? Well-behaved, glossy locks. Bio-Oil, $13.
2. Love the idea of lip liner, but hate the telltale outline? Here’s a good trick. Apply liner along your cupid’s bow only, then blend down and sideways. The line will soften, but the colour will stay put. Repeat in same area on bottom lip. Apply stick, stain or gloss as usual. You’ll have natural-looking, but defined lips all day long! Try M.A.C Lip Pencil, $16
3. You don’t need to drop a wad of dough to get a doe-eyed look, just try Maybelline New York Great Lash Mascara, $.6.50. Launched in 1971, the mascara became an instant hit among models and make-up artists alike due to its ability to deliver long, healthy-looking lashes. It’s still a favourite today— one is sold every 1.2 seconds somewhere in the world. Need another reason to try it? This year it joined the 40-club, so it’s finally one of the girls.
