Red Lipstick brings the wow factor to any outfit. Bobbi Brown has recently released a range of glamorous red lipsticks that go great with any skintone. Bobbi Brown’s metallic lip colour in Jewel Red is a fabulous, slightly shimmer lipstick that brightens the skin and looks amazing with painted red talons and heaps of mascara for a dramatic look.

Chanel’s New Polish: La Vernis Riva

Chanel Polish, Le Vernis Riva.

Almost every makeup guru has been raving about this exciting new shade from Chanel. Le Vernis Riva is a soft blue shade that is ultimately set to take over ‘greige’ for the party season. Watch this space because this is the shade every fashionista will be wearing by next season.

Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette

Bobbi Brown Crystal Eye Palette, £34.

This gorgeous collection of eyeshadow’s will definitely be on my christmas wish list. The metallic eyeshadows come in four bold pigmented shades. Purple and turquoise will look great both together and on their own  for a bold christmas look, and the silver and frost white shades are perfect for seriously glitzy eyes. The cut palette comes in a mini compact with brush – perfect for slipping into your handbag to take you from work to that xmas party.

Loreal Glam Shine Lipgloss

Loreal Glam Shine in Coral Strass, £7.99.

More of a gloss girl?  Loreal’s Glam Shine lipgloss is the perfect culprit for super sparkly, glossy lips. Always been a favourite of mine, this lipgloss makes your lips look beautiful and plump and it comes in dozens of shades so you can be a sparkly nude or beautiful berry shade. My favourite shades are Coral Strass and Sheer Cassis, both £7.99

Dior Skin Flash Radiance Booster Pen

Dior Skin Flash, £23.

Move over Touch Eclat, there’s a new radiance pen in town. Dior Skin flash does the same job, however contains a bit more coverage than its YSL counterpart. This wonder product covers dark circles, highlights and brightens the skin, perfect for those mornings after partying. A dab of this under the eyes keeps you looking super refreshed in seconds. A must for the party season.

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge

Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge, £16.50.

Bobbi Brown has really stepped up this year with their amazing must-haves. This Pot Rouge is most definitely one of them. The cream-based formula is for the lips and cheeks, used as a blusher or lip tint. You can either apply with a makeup brush or fingers and it gives that sweet, rosy glow to cheeks that looks great in Winter. This is more hydrating than powder blush and matte lipsticks too and there is a range of colours to suit every skin tone.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer

Laura Mercier Primer, £27.

It is important to wear a foundation primer underneath your makeup if you want it to last longer and look flawless, and Laura Mercier has been voted over and over again as the No.1 makeup primer in the UK. This is oil-free and creates an invisible barrier between skin and makeup, protecting the skin and smoothing out flaws before you apply makeup for a stunning finish. Make sure to invest in a good primer to prevent makeup melt-downs at that christmas party!
