In the past touching up your roots was a messy proposition that involved bowls, brushes and invariably a few stains. Two new products are offering the hair-coloring equivalent of point and click. The Mixer by Colour Revolution comes in a syringelike applicator that eliminates the need for mixing-just aim it at your regrowth, squeeze out the formula, leave it in for 30 minutes, and then wash it out. Another shortcut: Revlon Color Silk Root Perfect, which features a built-in sponge applicator.

"I like to use a shadow that's a bit lighter than the liner, so you get dimension," he says. "If you use too much black shadow and liner on the eye, you can end up looking like the dog from The Little Rascals."
