Beauty: cushions — If foundation in warm weather seems all wrong to you, then you should check out cushions ready for spring. Like most modern beauty innovations, cushions come from South Korea, which also first gave us BB and CC creams. The technology basically pours very thin liquid skin tints, which would normally be too watery to apply, into a spongy cushion (similar to those used by bank clerks to wet their fingers to count notes).

Beauty: problem solvers

Beauty: next-gen brands — It's politically sensitive but nonetheless true that the launch of Charlotte Tilbury's own makeup in 2013 started a revolution and robbed many existing brands of market share and their equally sizable complacency. While they wonder how they can up their game to compete, a new generation of entrepreneurs seems bolstered by Tilbury's success and chutzpah.

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.

@JohnOfElmet @marksandspencer OED has both Halos and Haloes. And in any case, no need to drop e and add apostrophe.
