There’s a TBL Good Night Serum too (as well as loads of other products worth exploring). R1550 from

What if red could talk. Would it shout wear me proudly, or whisper slip me on discreetly? Either way, this collection from Chanel works. Two oversized eyeshadow palettes with matte and satin shades (both include the wonderful matte sienna red shade), eyeliner in rose, nails in watermelon. Red rises to a crescendo on the lips with Rouge Allure Velvet in soft mauve beige, delicate dusty orange, deep sienna red, and iconic and bold dusty red. Available in Chanel stores or online at

These 100 per cent natural Superfood Make-Up Foundation Set balms from SA skincare brand Eco Diva Natural are a first. Packed with power superfoods, vitamins and antioxidants (so your skin is consistently being hydrated, rejuvenated and recharged when you wear it), the silky textured foundation glides on, lasts a good eight hours and leaves you looking like you aren’t wearing make-up at all. Just flawless, silky-smooth, even-toned glowing skin. Because it looks like you’re make-up free, they’re popular with men who want to hide blemishes, too, and can be worn by those suffering from skin conditions like psoriasis, pigmentation, premature ageing, acne, rosacea and eczema. Four base shades, which you can blend to get the perfect shade for your skin, and they’re packaged with a washable bamboo artist palette, two wooden artist scraper tools and a shading and highlighting tutorial.
