Looking to change up your beauty look this season? We’ve rounded up the 10 make-up essentials you need this winter.
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 beat the winter blues.
But before you rush out to your nearest beauty counter to stock up on new products, itâ€™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 thatâ€™s past itâ€™s best before date â€“ you can find out how long you can safely use make-up for here â€“ and get rid of products that have been placed in your â€śnever-useâ€ť 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 youâ€™re never going to use.
