Trend: Rich Creams
It feels as though there's a new face cream launched every minute, so we've sifted through the latest arrivals to bring you our three fresh favourites – for this week, anyway. And here they are: a top-end refining concentrate, some night-release retinol, and an antioxidant-rich cream.
This week I try … dental imaging

The lowdown My lower teeth have begun to crowd each other and my incisors are a little crooked, so I am at Pitt Street Dental Centre to have some dental imaging done with the Invisalign Outcome Simulator. Dentist Andy Kumar runs the scanner over my upper and lower teeth to show me how they look now and then to simulate how my future-perfect teeth might look if I were to have them treated with a dental process called Invisalign, a system that uses a series of clear, removable, custommade aligners over a period of months to straighten teeth. Think of them as the "new braces".
Pain factor Just trying to overcome my highly developed gag reflex.
Downtime Sixty seconds for the scan and 10 minutes for the consultation.
Results The images were quite compelling as they showed how even my teeth could look if I signed up for the Invisalign treatment, which costs between $7000 and $12,000.

Statement eyebrows are certainly in the limelight, and the secret to getting them bold and shapely is to taper the tail end into a neat point, which also creates a lifting effect. Try Garbo & Kelly's waterproof brow gel in clear, blonde or brunette ($38, adorebeauty.com.au), to set the shaping work in place.
How do I choose the best bronzing powder for me?
Pick a bronzer that is three shades deeper than your skin tone. For fair skin, try peach-based tones; golden hues will complement olive skin nicely, while those with a darker complexion should go for rich bronze shades. Use a powder brush to work the bronzer along the hairline, bridge of the nose and sides of the cheeks.
