Thinking of Renewing Your Makeup Bag This Winter?

Check Out These Must Have Products

This summer has seen an increase in popularity in an array of spray tans coupled with a natural makeup look, bronzy shades of foundation, tinted moisturisers, vibrant peach and pink cheeks, bronzer, plenty of eyeliner, lashings of mascara finished with a soft pastel lipstick or lip-gloss….

It’s time to be a little adventurous in your choice of makeup shades and colours as you decide what your new winter makeup style will be. With so many yummy makeup brands and products out there it can be difficult to choose, I know that when I go makeup shopping I’m like a little child in a toyshop. I want everything! This month I thought I’d share my most loved new makeup products with you.

Definitely keep the tinted moisturizer in your makeup bag. My three favourites are: Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturiser SPF20 £34.00, Bobbi Brown SPF 15 tinted Moisturiser £29.00 and the NYX Tinted moisturiser £10.00.


With the festive, party season round the corner, which seems to begin earlier every year,) it’s good to get an arsenal of super-sparkly and metallic eye-shadows, heavy metal eye liners and plenty of iridescent lip-glosses.

YSL 2YSL Eyeshadows

If you really want to splash out then I try the YSL ‘Pretty Metal Fall’ and ‘Metal Clash’ five colour eye-shadow palette’s, not only is the packaging one the best I have seen in ages, each of these shadow collections contain richly pigmented colours that guarantee, once applied, to bring your eyes alive in hues of sparking colour! £42.50.


Moodstruck 3D Fibre Lashes  – (Hypoallergenic) is a must for every makeup bag. It really works and thickens your eyelashes unbelievingly well. £23.00.

Urban Decay LipstickUrban Decay Revolution Lipstick is another one of my favourite products. The lipsticks are lush and super creamy, the hydrating formula works well to prevent the lip drying effects of winter weather and the range offers a variety of richly pigmented colours with shades that range from lovely nudes to bright warm splashes of vibrant reds, purples, oranges, browns, peaches and pink colours. With just one coat this lipstick will give your lips a lasting, rich voluptuous look, well priced at £15.50.
