I hope you read this while sipping a hot chocolate or a warm cup of coffee. Yum !

When I think of winter beauty, I think of the three L’s; Lips, Lashes and Liner. No one knows how to work it better than our bad girl Rihanna!

Here are a few beauty must haves for this winter.

Deep red, purple, wine or plum lips colours have the ability to amplify a look in an instant or as Drake would say ‘0 to 100 real quick’. Here are a few of my current favourites.

Now to ensure that you don’t look washed out when rocking a dark lippy, bronzer will become your best friend! Not only will it illuminate and bring warmth to your face but it also adds definition. These are hands down my absolute favourite bronzers!

Eye makeup should be kept simple and clean. For a crisp, clean and precise line use a felt tip pen liner. This will give you more control over the thickness and style of the liner.

And to top off the look and your winter makeup bag coat your lashes in some of my current favourite mascaras !

These two mascaras amplify the length of your lashes and add thickness, depending on how many coats you apply.
