Rita Hazan’s temporary colour hairsprays (£12) in pink, blue and purple are ideal for adding vibrant highlights, streaks, tips and all-over colour without using tints, bleach or peroxide.
Go a whiter shade of pale with ILLAMASQUA Skin Base foundation in shade 01 (£33). This pure white foundation and is always popular in the lead up to Halloween due to its pigmentation and coverage.
