NUDESTIX have collaborated with award-winning actress and Nudestix investor Hilary Duff to create the Daydreamer Palette (£70).  This is a customised collection of six ethereal shades for face, eyes and lips that transition from sneakers to stilettos, featuring cult-favourite products in new shades selected by Hilary.  As multitasking as they are versatile, the collection can be worn for a nude, soft, luminous day look or be amped up for a glam night look.  All products are individually packaged in NUDESTIX’s signature, reusable tin and enclosed in a holographic makeup clutch designed specifically by Hilary.  Available mid-October from Selfridges and cultbeauty.

Real Techniques have launched a Custom Collection range of 3-in-1 brushes.  Each brush features a slide mechanism in the handle that changes the density of the bristles, allowing you to take control of the level of coverage.  These can be used with cream, liquid or powder products, and retract fully so easy to keep in your kit, particularly if you’re travelling light.  Three brushes are available – complexion brush, contour brush and cheek brush (£11.99 each).  Available exclusively from superdrug.

Top up your client’s tan and give them a luminous glow with BarryM’s Sunchaser Tanning Boosting Drops (£7.99).  Enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamin E, these drops will soothe skin and leave it silky smooth while developing a beautifully natural tan.  Create the perfect custom colour by adding 1 – 3 drops into any moisturiser and applying to exfoliated face for a gorgeous, sunkissed streak-free complexion all year round. Want a deeper colour? Simply add more drops!  Formulated with a 100% naturally derived DHA. Vegan and cruelty free.  Available from barrym, Superdrug stores nationwide and larger Boots stores.

The new Algenist Elevate Firming & Lifting Neck Cream (£78) provides visible results within just 10 days on the décolletage and neck – the most delicate area of the body and the first to show signs of aging.  Infused with patented Alguronic Acid, vegan Celery Protein and a pro-peptide complex, it visibly improves firmness and tightens the skin.   Formulated to fit in line with Algenist’s commitment to 100% vegan ingredients and formulas without any added animal or animal-derived ingredients.  Available from cultbeauty, look fantastic and John Lewis.

The changing seasons can play havoc with your hair.  Cocosolis Organic’s Hair Oil Mask 3 in 1 (£29) is a natural 3in1 mask oil for intensive hair restoration and nourishment.   The power of natural oils prevents breaking, split ends and tangles leaving hair silky smooth, strong and shiny.   With a pleasant aroma of coconut milk, the mask repairs and revitalises damaged hair, giving it silky softness and radiance whilst stimulating its fast growth.  Free of mineral oils, preservatives, colorants, allergens, parabens, GMOs or ingredients derived from synthetic or animal origin and has not been tested on animals.  Available from cocosolis.

Guava & Gold’s Paradise Found Shampoo (£22) and Conditioner (£22) both combine the white floral facets of tuberose and Arabian jasmine with a base of comforting golden amber and pink cedar. The hydrating avocado and manuka oils are combined within a delicately glistening texture, to restore the hair’s natural strength providing shine and softness while evoking tropical beach memories through a long-lasting opulent scent.  Both products are paraben and sulphate free and come in elegant and 100% recyclable glasses bottles.  Available from guavaandgold.
