My Winter Beauty Essentials

The great thing about this year is all the parties and celebrations, giving you plenty of time to dress yourself up using a whole host of products. These are just a sample of my winter beauty essentials.

Dark Berries
I know people rave about the dark berries and gothic purples for autumn, but these are my favourite shades to wear during winter too. I feel much more confident with a purple lip colour compared to a red, so this has to be an essential for me. Whether your choice be red, purple, blue or black(?) a dramatic dark lip is perfect for winter, post-Christmas and the party season.

Moisturise, moisturise, moisturise, ok, I admit that I am pretty terrible at this, but it's something that I try to do daily, specifically during winter. I moisturise my face daily without question and have seen massive improvements in my skin, but what I specifically mean about here is body moisturising. I'm sure we have all had those horrible hands that are harsh and tired looking caused by the dry weather. My personal favourites are Soap and Glory (Name) and the Sanctuary (name), both are perfect for repairing the skin during winter.

This is most likely the first and last time I will class glitter in any kind of essentials list! I don't know what it is, but their is something about Christmas and the party season that screams glitter at me. Although Christmas is over, I'm not quite ready to say goodbye. Whether it be eyeshadows, nail polishes or an all-out glittery dress, there is no escaping it this season. This year, I will most likely be wearing it as eyeshadow and nail polishes.

I wear perfumes all year round, but there is nothing better than 'spritzing' up around the holiday season. Whether it be for a work Christmas do or a trip round the Christmas sales, I don't know what it is, but I particularly enjoy wearing perfumes this time of year. My favourite at the moment has to be 'Jimmy Choo' Eau de Parfum. It's a beautiful scent, that works during the day, but is particularly fabulous at night.
