YSL Summer look Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones, $105: This new silky-matte bronzer gives an effortless tinted glow - without shine. It looks like you have been on holiday without risking sun damage.

Revlon PhotoReady Insta-Fix Highlighting Sticks, $33: A highlighting fan, I swipe this stick above the cheekbones, temples, on the cupid bows and brow bones, and my skin looks ten years younger.

Elizabeth Arden Sunset Bronze Prismatic Lip Gloss in Moonlight Kiss, $49: Wearing lip gloss makes you look infinitely more youthful. And the addition of the delicate lilac shimmer in this gloss plumps lips immediately.
Guerlain Meteorites Pearl Carousel Collector, $97: These tiny balls are a blend of skin-loving pigments. The fuchsia revives dull skin; yellow eliminates dullness, and the pearlescent white and soft mauve catches the light to give skin a radiant glow. Simply swirl your brush in the pot, and dust this magic powder all over your face. 

MAC Tendertalk Lip Balm in Candy Wrapped, $40: If 100 women used this balm, each would be sporting a different shade of pink. It what's known as a 'smart lip conditioner' that creates a personalised tint based on your skin's chemistry. And, it can double as a hydrating, rosy glow for cheeks a well.

Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara. $20: This is a makeup miracle. While you wear it, lashes are tinted black a little more each day - now that's what I call a multitasker.  

Bobbi Brown Instant Confidence Stick, $76: Just like a rubber removes pencil marks, this colourless matte balm, blurs fine lines and wrinkle, controls oil and reduces shine - a must for every makeup kit (on counter July).

The BrowGal Highlighter Pencil, $40: Originally designed to highlight the brow bone using the shimmery end, or for covering red spots post-plucking with the matte end, this double-duty pencil will conceal dark circles and add a touch of shimmer on skin as well - it's a makeup staple.
