10 Winter Beauty Musts

 With the temperature dropping day after day, Winter is fast approaching, so here is a look at our top ten beauty buys that will help you relax on those frozen solid days, and put you at ease when the wind is out in gale force on your way to work. These ten essentials are pretty and practical - the perfect excuse to indulge.

1. Fake it
Clarins Delicious Self-Tanning Cream, $42
 In Winter, it's impossible to have a natural tan if your naturally pale (unless your privileged enough to jet off to sunnier clims for a while), so faking it is the way to go. Clarins have designed a tub of foolproof self-tanning cream for a carefree tan job that's quick and easy.

2. Combat rainy days with waterproof mascara
Dior DiorShow Waterproof Mascara, $24
 There is only one thing worse than getting caught in the rain - and that's facing your friends and/or colleagues with streaky mascara afterwards. Stock up on a waterproof mascara to see you through the rainy season so you don't end up looking like Taylor Momsen after a downpour.

3. Add an on-trend nail polish
Givenchy Vernis Please! Nail Lacquer, $15
 Givenchy have released this limited edition sizzler which provides a twist to the usual red polish. Stock up on limited edition and statement shades to be ahead of the game for Winter - think Chanel's plum metallic shade, named Paradoxal (check it out here).

4. Select your Scent
Gucci Guilty, $55
A perky fragrance with floral notes can keep your dreaming of Summer days while your stuck inside, or try out a deep musk to get in a wintry mood. Gucci have just released their Winter fragrance "Gucci Guilty" - the alluring gold bottle is deeply luxurious.

 5 - Perk up your cheeks
NARS The Multiple - Orgasm, $38
 Give washed out skin a makeover with a touch of blush or bronzer, or try the hit 'Orgasm' by Nars, guaranteed to give your winter complexion a glow in one slick.

6 - Go Smokey
Guerlain Écrin 6 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palette
in  Champs-Élysées $84
Smokey eyes are a must for all those Christmas parties - make it unusual with a touch of violet, easily achieved with the glamorous Champs-Élysées palette by Guerlain, new for Winter.

7 - Quench thirsty skin
Clinique Moisture Surge Extended Thirst Relief, $34 - $46.50
 Winter can be harsh on your skin, so make sure to step up your beauty regime to include a moisturizer that will keep your skin looking peachy, even after a frolic in the snow. Clinique's moisture surge promises to hydrate and comes in a simple gel.

8 - Avoid wind-blown hair
Phyto Spray Laque Hair Spray, $18
Wind can spoil your perfectly prepared hairstyle in an instant, so don't shy away from a good hairspray when the winter winds start blowing. A good hairspray should hold your hair and add a little body.

9 - Soak it up
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Bath and Body Collection, $48 - $90
 When the cold days hit, there is nothing like dwelling in a hot bath and relaxing with a glass of your favourite Merlot - try Victor & Rolf's Bath and Body soak for an enveloping floral experience.

10 -Pucker up with classic red lips
Yves Saint Laurent ROUGE VOLUPTÉ
Silky Sensual Radiant Lipstick SPF 15, $34
Classic red lips are back with a bang for Winter, so transform into a seductress with a red pout and a black cocktail dress to add to your mystery, or wear it with a crisp white shirt, black tailored trousers and heels for an instant daytime hit.
