Now that winter’s arrived, you might be thinking of ways to update your beauty collection. This point in the calendar is the perfect time to replenish your makeup bag with some essentials for the chilly season.

Revamping your makeup supply may be easier than you think; most products are available from your local high street beauty stores and online retailers such as Lloyds Pharmacy.


The warm summer sun may feel like a distant memory, but it’s still possible to give your complexion a glow. Bronzer is perfect if you’re keen to add some colour to your skin. Whether you go for a product that is soft adn understated or you opt for a darker shade, adding this product to your collection is a great way to inject some vibrancy into your makeup bag.

Lip balm

This time of year can take its toll on your lips, leaving them feeling dry and sore. Chapped or cracked lips can be painful, and let’s face it, it’s not a good look either. Make sure you pick up a good quality moisturising balm to protect your lips from the elements and keep the hydrated and feeling great. You could even try a tinted balm to add a splash of colour to your winter look.

Waterproof mascara

From heavy rain to sleet and snow, the weather at this time of year can wreak havoc on eye makeup, so waterproof mascara is a winter must-have. Using a waterproof mascara will mean you’re ready for whatever the elements throw at you, helping you to avoid any unwanted smudges and keeping your lashes looking lush at all times.


As the festive season approaches, it’s likely that your diary will be filling up with exciting events, from office parties to New Year celebrations. However, indulging in a few long days and late nights can have its down sides when it comes to your complexion. To disguise dreaded dark circles and post-party blemishes, you may want to invest in a creamy concealer to keep your skin looking radiant and glowing despite the fact you may be feeling a little worse for wear.


Highlighter is another must-have beauty product that you should make room for in your makeup bag this season. When applied to your cheekbones, chin and temples, this makeup staple illuminates these areas to add depth and give a gorgeous, radiant glow. This is perfect for brightening up a dull complexion for any occasion.

Don’t let the change of season interrupt your beauty routine; keep ahead of the game with these five handy products.
