1 MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo, R250

When I have to dress to impress or am just feeling down, on goes my signature Ruby Woo – and instantly, it looks like I’ve made an effort. It can be drying, so moisturise your lips before application.

2 Blistex DCT Lip Protectant, R79,95

I swear by this super-moisturising lip balm – it lives in my handbag. I love lipsticks with drying matte formulas, so it’s important that I keep my lips conditioned. I exfoliate them weekly as well to help the lip balm; it tingles a bit once applied – which, for me, is a sign that it’s working!

3 Maybelline Master Strobing Stick Illuminating Highlighter in Dark, R1430

This is the best highlighter I’ve used in years: it’s not too intense and goes with my complexion. After applying foundation I glide it over my cheekbones, the bridge of my nose, my chin, and below and above my brows. I blend furiously and voila! – a fabulous glow that lasts the entire day.

4 ORS Olive Oil Wrap/Set Mousse, R99

I relax my hair.
