Keely, our year-10 work experience student, shares her favourite beauty buys for winter – and I have to say, we’re pretty impressed! Not only has she chosen a great line-up of winter-worthy products, but she’s also written like a real beauty buff. Here’s her first ever beauty blog, totally unedited. Pretty awesome for a 15-year-old, don’t you think?
Has the cold season hit you unprepared? Is your skin dry and looking dull? Are you finding the products you use in summer just don’t cut it?
Then I’ve got just what you need. These products are winter essentials, all super moisturising to keep you looking alive during the battle against the cold.
Cracked lips are not a good look. A lip balm is essential for keeping lips smooth and soft. Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm is a good, inexpensive lip balm that smells great and leaves your lips feeling fully moisturised.
Winter will suck the moisture right out of your skin, leaving you with unhealthy looking cracked skin. The Body Shop Body Butters are both great smelling and are thick enough to tackle even the worst cases of dry skin.
When winter comes, unfortunately so do dry and cracked lips. A great lipstick that won’t sink into those cracks is the Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter. This lipstick will moisturise your lips and leave them looking very glossy.
Keeping your hands and nails healthy in winter is just as important as the rest of your body. MOR Marshmallow Hand and Nail Cream is an extremely rich cream perfect for restoring and protecting.
For winter, your foundation generally needs to have more moisture in it. Stila Perfect and Correct Foundation ($72, http://www.meccacosmetica.com.au) is perfect for winter. Not only does it provide a good coverage but also gives your skin the hydration needed to beat the winter chill.
Treating yourself to a scrub 2 or 3 times a week will help to soften and brighten your skin. For the face, St Ives Naturally Clear Blemish Fighting Apricot Scrub is perfect. This scrub contains a natural Exfoliant, which leaves your skin feeling and looking smooth after each use.
