Don’t get stuck in a make-up rut: we’ve rounded up the new products you need to freshen up your look.

Looking to change up your beauty look this season? We’ve rounded up the 10 make-up essentials you need to try right now.

We’re all guilty of playing it safe with make-up every now and then, but there’s no time like the present to overhaul your beauty routine by introducing a pop of colour. After all, a slick of vibrant lipstick or gloss or a hint of bronzer is a quick way to help send winter on its way.

But before you rush out to your nearest beauty counter to stock up on new products, it’s a wise idea to assess your current make-up situation.

1. Revlon Crystal Aura Liquid Allow Eyeshadow ($22). 2. Bobbi Brown ‘The Essentials Palette’ $80. 3 Tom Ford Extreme Lip Spark in Powertrip ($88). 4 NARS Mini Most Wanted palette, $43 from MECCA. 5. Giorgio Armani Lip Maestro ($62).




Start by arranging your make-up into groups determined by how often you use to products. Bin anything that’s past it’s best before date – you can find out how long you can safely use make-up for here – and get rid of products that have been placed in your “never-use” pile. While it can be tempting to hold onto products that you haven’t got around to using, it’s a good idea to be ruthless and clear out any regrettable purchases that you’re never going to use.

Once you’ve worked out what’s missing in your make-up bag or is in need of an upgrade, check out our 10 make-up essentials you need now.
