MAC Mineralize Multi-Effect Lash

How many minerals are in your mascara? Now you can enjoy the benefits of the 77 styling, softening, separating miracle-workers in MAC’s new Mineralize Multi-Effect Lash, the first to include the brand’s nourishing and perfecting 77-Mineral Complex. Add an innovative brush that evenly coats lashes from root to tip, lengthens and leaves an inky, glossy sheen, and you’ve got yourself one wedding-worthy beauty bestie. 

Cooper by Trelise dress

Channel the star power of Stevie Nicks into your bridesmaids’ ensembles with Trelise Cooper’s Fleetwood dress. A little bit boho, a little bit glam, its bell sleeves and lightweight tiered skirt are made for a summer celebration, and you’ll bask in the glow of the gold sheen that elevates the look from daywear to decadent. 


​Sometimes even the most organised among us need a little support, and if wedding-planning stress is keeping you up past your bedtime, SleepDrops have your back. The all-natural potion is a soothing blend of herbs you can take before bed or when you wake in the wee hours and has no drowsy after effects. Just dispense a few drops under your tongue for a solid, restorative snooze. 

Kiehl’s Oil Eliminator range

Banish bad skin from your beau’s life with the new oil-eliminating range from Kiehl’s. Comprising an exfoliating cleanser, 24-hour moisturiser and shine-control toner, the regimen promises to rebalance skin and minimise enlarged pores. Formulated with actual space-age technology (the ingredients that give the moisturiser its weightless feel were used during a mission to Mars in ’97!) they’ll help ensure you’re greeted at the end of the aisle by a groom with sexy skin.
