If you’re readying your remote for autumn’s big TV premieres, why not make the most of your couch time by coupling the return of your favourite programme with a beauty treatment that works while you watch? We’ve rounded up some product-and-programming pairs that give a whole new meaning to multi-tasking (not to be confused with multimasking!).
The TV Show: Keeping Up With The Kardashians
Returns November on E! UK
Without reality TV’s most ubiquitous sisters, the contouring trend would hardly be as popular as it is today. Study up on the make-up techniques that Kim, Khloé, and Kourtney made famous and become your own one-woman glam squad with the Laura Mercier Contouring Palette. The five-shade palette has everything you need to shade and highlight your cheekbones, and the high-quality powders are made to hold up through anything — even an ugly cry meltdown.
The TV Show: The Affair
Returns 28th October on Sky Atlantic
Pour yourself a glass of wine and prepare to dive back into the entangled lives of Noah and Alison while your complexion reaps the benefits of vino grapes in Caudalie’s Instant Detox Mask from the Vinoperfect Overnight Bright Set. Wine grapes contain the potent polyphenol resveratrol, which helps prevent wrinkles and soothe irritation (among other amazing benefits) when applied to skin. In the span of minutes between ad breaks, the combination of antioxidant-packed grape extract, purifying pink clay, and radiance boosting papaya enzymes sooth skin to act as a skincare partner that you can rely on.
The TV Show: The Walking Dead
Now showing on Fox UK
Will Rick Grimes’ severe brand of leadership save his new neighbours from the flesh-eating hordes in Season 6? If you’re feeling zombie-like yourself (who has time for sleep with all of these new shows?), then comfort your eyes during the ad breaks (or when you’re too scared to watch!) with Liz Earle Beauty Co Eyebright™ Soothing Eye Lotion. It calms and soothes puffiness with its blend of cornflower and aloe vera, so you’ll look more like one of the living come Monday morning.
The TV Show: Catastrophe
Returns 27th October on Channel 4
Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney return for Series 2 of this heartfelt Channel 4 comedy, and we’re expecting big things! Erase the effects of all that chuckling by slapping on a When™ The Last Choice Sheet Mask while you watch – it delivers a moisture boost with hyaluronic acid to plump skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines. No funny business here: these masks give serious results.
