A few things that make a difference.

With a push of a button or wave of a wand, these products are designed to make a new look easy.

Karen Murrell Red Shimmer
What other lipstick can be buried in the garden when it's finished? All natural ingredients empower this classic red lippy ($30), and its canister is biodegradable, so you don't have to be stingy when mastering a classy red pout.

Redken Powder Refresh 01 dry shampoo
A must-have for the gym bag or suitcase, this dry shampoo ($36) absorbs excess oil and neutralises odours with a couple of sprays. It's an impressive trick to hide that oil-slick look.

Kiehl's Clearly Corrective White Hydrating Moisture Emulsion
The final step in Kiehl's five-step skin regime to combat discolouration, this moisturiser ($82) enhances skin clarity using white birch, peony extract and other powerful, yet gentle, ingredients.

Clinique Bottom Lash Mascara
Do you find it difficult to coat bottom lashes evenly with a normal mascara brush? Clinique has the answer with one of the smallest brushes on the market ($30). Wash the long-lasting formula away with some warm water at the day's end. How easy.

Paul Mitchell Awapuhi Wild Ginger Hydrocream Whip
Awapuhi ginger is a plant extract favoured by Hawaiians and Paul Mitchell. Its nourishing sulphate-free properties make the volumising and smoothing product ($32.95) excellent for finishing off a blow-dry.

INIKA Certified Organic Liquid Mineral Foundation
It feels good to use organic products and this foundation ($65) is no exception. With antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, your skin is left tingly with natural-looking and long-lasting coverage.
