No. 6: Lip and Cheek Stain

When it comes to everyday winter makeup, it’s all about rosy cheeks and lips. Instead of stepping outdoors every time you want to get that snow-kissed glow, we suggest investing in an all-in-one lip and cheek stain. The Body Shop carries a pink lip and cheek stain that we love, making any girl look like a holiday heart-breaker.
