Which are the beauty products that I can't live without?  My must-haves are dependant on the weather, the season & where I am.  I have selected a few products that I adore to fill you in on.  Hopefully they will inspire you're winter beauty regime.  

My beauty look is natural with either a smoky eye or a red lip - never both.  I like a gentle base in the winter applied to a well moisturised dewy complexion.  These are products that I travel with and apply daily.  They work hard for their price tag and compete with the best.  Clinique's Smart Custom moisturiser is gentle while hydrating, brightening & strengthening the skin.  It leaves my skin plumped and fresh.   

I must have trialled at least twenty foundations over the past six months & again Clinique's a winner for delicate skin.  Their Superbalanced makeup is oil free, streak proof & contains antioxidants.  It looks really natural whilst giving enough coverage.  Top this off with my secret weapon of Clinique's chubby stick sculpting highlighter to give defined cheekbones.  

For an easy smoky eye that lasts I find L'Oreal's Super Liner Smokissime does the job perfectly.  It's sponge liner tip means drawing a line is simple and the product sets really quickly.  It then doesn't budge until you remove it at the end of the day.

My final beauty pleasure is a new edition thanks to the gorgeous guys at L'Occitane in the form of one of their two new fragrances.  This collaboration with french patisserie Pierre Herme produced a fresh, feminine fragrance that awakens your senses even at 5am when it's cold and dark.  You must try Jasmin Immortelle Neroli Eau de Toilette, it's delicious!

Got the blues?

Need something to brighten your day?  These Valentino flats should do the trick.  Feminine cornflower blue and nude leather gets seriously punk'd up with silver eyelet and buckle detailing. Style with the simplest black jeans and a crisp white shirt.  Yes please.

Love, Style, Life & L'Oreal

Who doesn't love a great book?  

After pre-ordering mega blogger and illustrator Garance Dore's  'Love X Style X Life' back in the summer I was excited to have it dropped through the letter box.  Garance also sent me a beautiful box of her favourite L'Oreal products after entering a competition for the book's launch.  I'll let you know shortly if I love them as much as her.  Congrats GD x

Carine Roitfeld x Uniqlo

Yes, Carine Roitfeld is one of my biggest style icons and yes, I made sure I was around to shop her collection with Uniqlo the minute it launched.  Carine, in my opinion, is completely fabulous and constantly inspires my wardrobe choices.  The former model, writer and editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris first started to inspire my style at 22 when I look my first job in fashion in London and stocked up on black blazers.  Since then the blazer collection has grown as have the silk shirts, crisp white mens shirts and black leather mini skirts.  

Carine's collection for High St brand Uniqlo launched this week with a beautiful edit of boiled wool blazers, long-line silk printed shirts, classic pinstripe suits and neckerchiefs.  I made a few purchases and refrained from shoving the whole collection into a basket!  This long-line, 100% silk, camouflage print blouse is one of my favourite pieces and works with jeans and a lace bra or for work with a blazer and leather trousers.  

If you're super quick you may fine the odd piece still online or in their Regent St store.
