January is one of our favourite beauty months for two reasons: it’s in the heart of summer (which we all know is the best season for having fun with our makeup looks) and the start of the year always inspires a fresh new approach to our skincare. This month’s new a-beauty products perfectly align with these sentiments of enjoying the good weather and setting in motion the good intentions we’ve all set for ourselves as the new year kicks off.

Best for upping your glow game

OUR PICK: Becca Light Shifter Dewing Tint

There’s glowing skin, then there’s next-level glowing skin. Becca Light Shifter Dewing Tint delivers on the latter, and then some. This high-wattage tinted moisturiser will have your skin looking ultra dewy and radiant in seconds. It’s the perfect quick fix for dull skin after a night of too many vinos.

Best for updating your skincare routine

OUR PICK: QED Skincare Minis

Making the switch to a new skincare routine can be hard, not to mention expensive. That’s why we’re loving QED Skincare’s new line-up of mini versions of their best-sellers. While they’d be great for travel, given that’s off the table at the moment they’re the perfect excuse to dabble in the skincare brand if you’re yet to discover the hardworking formulas of this Australian brand (they’re all about delivering targeted solutions for sensitive skin) and find some new favourites to replace those in your existing regimen that aren’t quite cutting it for you anymore. Our top pick? The Deep Hydration No Rinse Cleanser. It’s the ultimate no-fuss cleanser for lazy summers.

Best for low-maintenance beauty routines

OUR PICK: Salt by Hendrix Lip Butter in Sunset, Beach & Rose

Looking after our lips is something we tend to focus on more in winter, when things get particularly flaky. But those hot summer days can leave your pout cracked and parched, too. Every beach bag should have a pot of the newly relaunched Salt by Hendrix Lip Butter in it. The nourishing formula is packed with coconut oil, shea butter, cocoa butter and argan oil to keep your lips smooth and protected from the drying effects of the sun and saltwater. And the subtle tint is the perfect beach-to-bar makeover for a low-maintenance look.

Best for grounded travellers

OUR PICK: Glasshouse Fragrances Sunrise in Capri Candle

By now, any seasoned jetsetter will well and truly be itching for a holiday to an exotic destination. Unfortunately, we’re all still grounded for the foreseeable future. So what’s the next best thing? For a greater sensory experience than simply scrolling Instagram for visual inspiration, fill your home with candles that capture the essence of a destination with its scent. Our favourite right now: Glasshouse Fragrances’ Sunrise in Capri, which will transport you to the stunning coastline of Capri with its notes of sweet orange blossom, jasmine, creamy coconut and sparkling citrus.

Best for those who love a beauty shortcut

OUR PICK: The Quick Flick Quick Lash

When homegrown beauty brand The Quick Flick launched its eyeliner stamp, it changed the winged eyeliner game for good. Suddenly, beginners could get the perfect flick with ease. Now, their latest innovation, The Quick Lash, is making life so much simpler for those who love a winged liner and false lash combo. The way Quick Lash works is you use it to draw on your winged eyeliner like you would with any liquid eyeliner pen. The difference is the formula doubles as an adhesive, so you can stick your false lashes straight onto the liner for a fuss-free, glue-free application.
