MODEL OBSESSION
For years, we’ve been hearing buzz about the French company Bioderma and its must-have makeup remover that supermodels reportedly love to stockpile (Gemma Ward is said to be a fan). Lucky for us, we don’t have to get a modelling gig in Paris to shop for this cult fave: welcome Bioderma Sensibio H20, $21, to our drugstores. It’s extra-mild, so sensitive types will like it, too.

FEED YOUR FACE
Food Network celeb host Ellie Krieger (who moonlights in New York University’s department of nutrition) was on hand to help launch the Garnier Nutritioniste skin-care line to Canadian beauty editors. Her good looks, manners and sense (“Eat healthy to look healthy”) turned us on to this new antioxidant-rich skin care. She suggests teaming up these goodies with skin-boosting foods (such as tomatoes, avocados, salmon and blueberries) to jump-start flawless skin from the inside out. We show Garnier Nutritioniste Ultra-Lift Anti-Wrinkle Firming Moisture Cream, $20, with vitamin A and omega-3 and -6, and Gar-nier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Daily Regenerating Moisture Cream (above), $19, with vitamin C and lycopene.

AVOID A DRY SPELL
Quench your eyes with Shiseido The Skincare Eye Moisture Recharge, $50. We smooth it over our under-eye concealer, giving our peepers a midday drink. Soothe your face with Boots N°7 Intensive Moisture Face Mask, $24. This creamy masque hugs the complexion while softening up parched skin. Hydrate your lips with rich-to-the-touch Biotherm Nourishing Lip Balm, $19. Allow it to sink in for a few minutes before putting on your lipstick.

 

HAIR HELP!
Question: My regular hairbrush is tearing out my pricey extensions.
Answer: Get a grip on the Acca Kappa Extension Brush, $58. A smart combo of long nylon bristles and shorter boar bristles detangles without disturbing your freshly fused extensions. Also a plus, its sturdy and round rubber base won’t get weak or wonky, preventing unnecessary tugging that can loosen those locks.

 

MADE FOR TV
Cargo Cosmetics is hoping celebs will get hooked onto its new Blu_ray Pressed Powder, $32. It’s made to make stars look flawless in HDTV (such as Brad Pitt and Britney, the worst-looking high-def stars, according to TV industry analyst Phillip Swann). Pixel-friendly photochromatic pigments correct redness, while micro-fine particles hide blemishes and cover up wrinkles sans a heavy-handed movie-makeup finish. (BTW: Angelina Jolie took the top spot on Swann’s list of high-def “Honeys.”)
