Winter Beauty Must Haves...

I've been doing some beauty features for my friend Sarah's final major project, and it got me thinking about what my favourite beauty buys are right now. I've already raved about my love for winter fashion, and this year I'm loving winter beauty just as much. Natural glowing skin, vampy lips, big bold eyes - it's my favourite look out there, so what better to write a post about...

Clockwise from Top Left:

1. Chanel is the only option when it comes to lipsticks. Long lasting, bold, and beautifully matte, there is no other than match the standard of this lipstick. With vampy reds and purples being the height of beauty right now, Chanel’s Rouge allure in shade 109 Rouge Noir is perfect. 

2. This new scent from Lancome really is the epitome of beauty this season, literally. La vie est belle is a French expression meaning life is beautiful, and with this feminine and floral fragrance you really will feel like the belle of the ball.

3. The world renown Liz Earle cleanse and polish is perfect for all skin types and ages. It’s rich and creamy consistency removes daily grime and make up leaving skin feeling clear, smooth and clean – exactly what you need in these cold and icy winter months.

4.    For big bold eyes, there is nothing better than this magnascopic mascara. Thick, long, and well defined lashes can be yours with just a couple of brush strokes. This is by far my favourite mascara. I tend to layer it on top of a thickening Rimmel one as this is mainly for length, but either way it is incredible. Once you’ve tried this, you’ll never look elsewhere.

5. I've already expressed my love for this conditioner in another post (here) so it seems only appropriate to include it in my winter must haves. The Body Shop banana conditioner is incredible for giving hair that beautiful shine that we all wish for. Soft to the touch, and very lightweight, this product does not leave anything in your hair except the beautiful fruity smell! It will be the best £4.50 you’ve ever spent, we can guarantee you will never look back.

6. Skin needs to look natural and glowing this season, and there is no better way to achieve that look than with a bit of trusty MAC. My friends always rave about their studio fix fluid and studio fix powder combined  and how it gives their skin a flawless matte finish. It has full coverage, stays in place all day, and contains protection from UVA rays to keep your skin in tip top condition all year round.

7.  Barry M is the perfect go to when it comes to bold and fun nails. This amethyst glitter shade is ideal for the party season. It looks great on its own, or on top of other shades of nail polish. Easy to apply and extremely durable, this will take you through from Christmas Eve to New Years Eve no problem.

8. I want this in my life! This overnight treatment contains naturally derived cashmere proteins with a blend of conditioning agents which penetrate deep into the hair shaft repairing broken bonds and protecting the hair from further disintegration. The treatment slows down the ageing process keeping your hair healthy, helping it to grow longer before it dries out. It's also said to help your hair hold its colour for longer, could you wish for anymore!?
