Beauty: tinted lipbalms that deliver — You may recall a time in the early 1980s when "colour adaptive lipbalms" were all the rage. Sheer lipsticks - often pea green, inexplicably - that went on clear and, reacting to the wearer's unique pH, developed into the perfect pink shade for their skin. Or so was the theory.

In The Shoe Closet: Marian Keyes

Beauty: contouring — For someone who adores makeup, I find the current craze for contouring a bit saddening. It appears that not only were our arses too fat and our mons pubis too hairy, but now our heads are the wrong shape, too, and need faceting like an emerald before we can so much as nip to the Co-op.

HD makeup: how to look camera-ready at all times — It was around 1998 when I began to hear rumours that high-definition makeup was on its way. The showbiz and beauty industries were fizzing with stories of American televisions actors and news anchors, mortified to suddenly see every pore, blemish and wrinkle amplified by the newly introduced and extremely sharp high-definition picture, throwing hissy fits and demanding better makeup to disguise them.

American Beauty - Sali Hughes Beauty — Sali Hughes bought all of the US beauty products so you don't have to I've been lucky enough to spend the past week in New York, working on some new videos for the site (coming in a couple of months).

Beauty: bad hair day? Try one of these brilliant cheats — Since cutting off five inches of hair, I've become obsessed with how much time one can save on styling - not only by shortening your hair (clearly, some short styles can be more labour-intensive even than long ones), but also with some guile and very little skill.

Beauty: bargain cover-ups for the New Year — It's January, which means most of us are poor from present buying, haggard from partying and spotty after bingeing on Ferrero Rocher and Miniature Heroes. So it seems to me a good time to mention some bargainous skin cover-ups that you can buy with little associated guilt.

Beauty: Sali Hughes’s greatest hits of 2014 — As I look back on all the products I tried, loved, hated and dribbled over in 2014, it occurs to me that several of them not only made the grade, but have also taken up permanent residence in my everyday kit.

In the Bathroom with Marian Keyes: Pt 2 — Sali rifles through best-selling author Marian Keyes' make-up collection, and discusses her love of foreign pharmacies and grey clouds. Part One can be found here.

Beauty: all I want for Christmas is the scent of iris — It seems impossible to begin to make recommendations for Christmas scents (and I can't claim to be bowled over by any), so I'm narrowing things right down to one ingredient with which I'm currently besotted: iris.
