Diego dalla Palma have introduced the Nudissimo Foundation (£28.50) and Compact Powder Highlighter (£21.50). The ultimate duo to create a soft matte base for your client with illuminated features.  Rich in sebum-absorbing properties, the oil-free foundation gives an ultra-natural finish to the skin and avoids looking heavy or cakey.  Innovative waxes reduce skin expression lines, wrinkles and imperfections while enhancing the natural luminosity of the skin.

The Compact Powder Highlighter is available in 3 universal shades. Ultra-fine and multi-faceted pearls create a creamy texture that is silky upon application.  Ideal for both face and body, define and illuminate cheekbones, neck and décolleté for an all-over, natural glow.

Available now online from marksandspencer and in selected Marks and Spencer stores.

DHC has introduced a line of products harnessing CoQ10: Coenzyme Q10, or ubiquinone (you-BIK-kwi-none).  The vitamin-like antioxidant acts to protect skin from harmful environmental stress.  It is produced naturally in the body but its levels decrease dramatically over time.

CoQ10 Milk (£34.50) is a lightweight, antioxidant-fuelled facial milk that promotes firmness and helps neutralise free radicals at the surface level. Features olive oil, collagen and sodium hyaluronate to hydrate and protect skin’s natural moisture barrier.

CoQ10 Eye Cream (£31) helps to improve the appearance of dark circles, fine lines and crow’s feet. Antioxidants including vitamins A, C and E fight signs of visible ageing, and shea butter and squalane deeply hydrate the delicate eye area.  The olive oil-infused formula easily absorbs for layering over additional treatments and under make-up.

Quick Gel Brightening Moisture (£54) simultaneously tones, hydrates, and primes skin for make-up. Can also be used as a hydrating mask treatment. Daisy extract and vitamin C help brighten.

Available from DHCuk, feelunique, lookfantastic and Harvey Nichols.

The curved tweezer-style applicator allows you to securely hold and place your client’s lashes as close to the lash line as possible for the perfect fit.  Using this also makes it easier when applying adhesive to the strip lash band and waiting for it to become tacky. Insta-ready in seconds.
