Friday, January 10th 2014 0

Quick fixes for every eventuality

From dry skin to cracked lips, the bitter coldness of January can mean trouble for your beauty regime. Keep these little beauty saviours in your handbag so that you're never caught short...

1. Origins Drink Up Hydrating Lip Balm in Pink Guava, £16.00 from origins.co.uk
If dryness is something that you find in skin or lips, look no further than Origins’ Drink Up range. This lip balm gives instant comfort with a long-lasting surge of moisture. What’s more is that it smells fresh and gives a subtle glossy sheen so you don’t feel bare for skipping on your lipstick.

2. Ojon Rare Blend Tamer, £20.00 from ojon.co.uk
Curls tend to have a mind of their own when it comes to the dampness of winter wind. This Ojon tamer is an oil-infused mascara for your hair. Work it through flyaways to give a polished finish, or brush through unruly ends when you’ve been caught off guard to smooth out frizz.

3. Clarins HydraQuench Serum, £32.80 from escentual.com
When it comes to serum, this is my no.1 go-to. If you’re cooped up in a heated office all day and find your make-up going cakey by the afternoon, press a tiny pump of this over your skin for a quick boost of moisture. Skin will instantly look dewier and feel relieved of any tightness.

4. Illamasqua Cream Pigment in Hollow, £17.50 from illamasqua.com
It’s a safe assumption that we’re all still carrying a few extra pounds after our Christmas indulgences. Buff this into the hollows of the cheeks for a natural, defined contour and an instant slimming effect.

5. L’Oreal Paris Color Riche Collection Prive Lipstick in Cheryl’s Nude, £8.16 at feelunique.com
With MAC just launching a range of coloured mascaras and Urban Decay taking the world by storm with the Naked 3 palette, a nude lip is a great way to keep the focus on your eyes. Cheryl’s nude lipstick is a classic that will finish your make-up with a really pretty, feminine touch.
