Favourite winter lipsticks!!!

P1110667

Hello makeup loves!

I can’t believe that it is already November, this year has gone so fast. As many of you will know I have spent the last year travelling around the world…..finally though I am back! I love winter- except for the cold weather- and I love that makeup wise you can start wearing deep, dark lipsticks. So, I thought I would tell you my favourite purple lipsticks for this winter and the great thing about most of these lipsticks is that they can be found in most Boots and Superdrug stores and accommodate for every budget!

First up is the new Maybelline Super Stay 14hr Lipstick in ‘Always Plum’, this lipstick lasts forever without drying out your lips and has a nice creamy texture. This is a matt plum colour and looks great alone or teamed with a lipgloss.

Up next is Revlon, and their AMAZING deep purple lipstick in ‘Va va violet’. I have used this lipstick on many photoshoots because the colour is so intense and beautiful. this is not long lasting so be aware that you will need to re-apply. This colour looks amazing on dark skin tones. I have included a photo from a shoot that I used this lipstick on.

Another great purple lipstick is another one by Maybelline from the ColourSensational range. The colour is ‘Midnight Plum 338’, and this is a slightly lighter plum colour than the deep Revlon. This colour differs dependent on skin tone and lip colour so be sure to try before you buy. This lipstick has very small flicks of shimmer through it and looks very pretty on lips for parties.

My last favourite lipstick is one from my Inglot palette, number 85. This is a long lasting lipstick with a semi-matt finish, highly pigmented this lipstick it fantastic for photoshoots. All of the Inglot lipsticks have a beautiful creamy texture to them and they feel lovely on your lips. Mmmmm……

Moving onto lipgloss I recently discovered this beautiful creamy gloss by Laura Mercier in ‘Mauve Plum’. It looks fantastic on top of the 14hr Maybelline lipstick from above. Purple lipgloss is great if you are a bit uncertain about statement lips as they are a lot sheerer than lipstick.

Finally Shu Uemura have a fantastic dark purple, very sheer lipgloss thats perfect for giving a high shine to a matt lipstick. The colour is 059N. It smells yummy too……

Winter beauty ‘must haves’!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells, Jingle all the way…….

I am already super DUPER excited about christmas and am preparing to put up my tree and decorations on the 1st December! I love this time of year where you can wrap up in so many layers you look like the abominable snowman and get away with it. Its also a great season to experiment with cooler makeup colours such as whites, blues and silvers. Here are my favourite beauty products that are going to make this winter AWESOME.

‘Fever’ MAC Blusher is my favourite colour for flushed winter cheeks. This is a very pigmented blush so go easy when applying. You can see this blusher in my ‘November makeup products’ tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxTQsFukRrg

MAC Snowglobe Christmas Collection 2011 are amazing! I love the packaging and my favourite one is the blue palette. For $45 you get 6 gorgeous and highly pigmented eyeshadows in great winter colours- sparkly white, silvers, greys, blues and purples. Great for experimenting with those cooler colours.

`Honey-Love`Matt lipstick by MAC is my nude lipstick of choice this season. You can team it with a nude eye or any colour that you wish to use as eyeshadow. Such a versatile lippy is a `must have`for this season of cold winter days and evening christmas parties.

Inglot eyeshadow in 395 the perfect shimmery colour that can also be used as a highlighter.

Benefit ‘They’re Real’ mascara is great to achieve false lashes without the hassle of glue and a fiddly strip lash. Great for fluttering your lashes at all the christmas parties you will be attending.

MAC cream highlighter in ‘Pearl’ is my all time favourite highlighter/illuminator. Blend above cheek bones and under brow bones for an instant party glow.

Make sure that your lips are juicy red and kissable this holiday season! I love GOSH Red Lipgloss.

Have fun and be merry……
