Bare beauty

BareMinerals' new Ready Makeup Series uses cutting-edge technology and natural ingredients in its new formulations that render chemical binders, fillers and synthetic elements unnecessary. Caffeine and cucumber extracts in the Eyeshadow 2.0 Duos (HK$210) - there are 22 to choose from - reduce puffiness and gently smooth the eye area to promote even application. The Blushes (HK$230), in 10 shades, are water-resistant. Available at bareMinerals counters.

Ooh la la chic

Nail polish inspired by the beauty and fantasy of Paris at night ... oh my! Check out Estee Lauder's Pure Color Line. Take the Beyond Black collection: five deep shades (HK$160/9ml) - rich blue to dramatic green - with just enough glitter to catch your eye and amazing colour payoff. For amplified lips, go for the Vivid Shine Lipsticks (HK$210/2.5g) - moisture, dimensional shine and long-lasting coverage, all in one tube. Available at Estee Lauder counters.
