"I love dry lips," said no woman ever…but most stains tend to leave our lips parched. This emollient formula from TopShop ($16; topshop.com) gives off a glossy sheen that eventually fades into a gorgeous stain, and lasts for hours.

The lighter formulas, like Estee Lauder's ($38; esteelauder.com), provide a bit of moisture without feeling too heavy or sticky and most versions contain SPF to protect from strong rays. Try using a shade deeper than your complexion to help warm up a pale winter complexion.

Powder formulas can feel a bit heavy, but this featherweight liquid ($48; spacenk.com) creates a subtle rosy stain that blends easily and stays put. Plus, the click style dropper delivers the perfect dose.

Milky cleansers can be great for dry winter skin but when the temperatures rises, switch to a gel cleanser for a deeper clean that helps eliminate shine. We like Garnier's version which contain charcoal to help draw out dirt and oil.
