Found: Your Australia Day hair and makeup courtesy of Kirsten Dunst

Happy ‘Straya Day, Primpettes. Regardless of how you plan on spending this glorious day of our Nation’s, we’ve got a cracking hair and makeup combo courtesy of the Dunst that we just know you festival lovers, BBQ goers and everyone in-between are just gonna love.
First up, meet Kirsten’s The-Sound-Of-Music meets Big-Day-Out Braid. Equally as pretty as it is practical, this plait is perfect for stopping naturally curly or wavy hair from turning off-the-charts frizzy in a packed-to-the-rafters DJ booth. And it requires zilch product.
Next, you need to make friends with a flattering lip and cheek tint.
When it comes to long wearing colour, you can’t go past Benefit’s Benetint (blood red) or Posie Tint (sheer pink). Not only does it leave the prettiest flush of pink this side of a David Austin Rose Garden but the real hook of this multi-tasking product is the hygienic application brush which not only makes it a must-for nailing touch ups in the most inconvenient of places, like a portaloo and the back of a cab, but it also means you can share it with your pals without having to worry about the woes of double dipping like you do with a pot of gloss.
Buy it, free up some space in your satchel, then wonder how you lived without it: Benefit Posie Tint, $53.
Oh and last but not least, put your everyday kohl on the back burner and make the switch to a waterproof eyeliner and mascara to avoid any lower lash line product transfer from ending up under the eyes and cheeks. And skip wearing mascara on the bottom lashes while you’re at it.
When it comes to waterproof liner, my vote goes to: Prestige Waterproof Eye Pencil that you can pick up in eight shades for around $13.50.
What are your plans for this fine public holiday
