Job done


When your roots can’t be hidden any more and it’s a week until you can get to the colourist, that can be a really long week, right? A powder eyeshadow used as camouflage may take the edge off the line, but can look dull and flat; those wax touch-up crayons don’t really cut it, and trying to apply mascara to roots is a tangled disaster.

So hallelujah for a product that’s a real game-changer for sorting this problem. Wow Root Cover Up, €38.50, is a mineral compound that comes in four shades, is water resistant and looks incredibly natural. Needless-to-say, it completely covers grey.
