Calling all singletons! Embrace your independence and do as the Chinese do - celebrate 11.11.11 (it's anti-valentine's for those who're going solo) - and show yourself some love with something from our edit of {most-wanted} {skin care} and {make up} must-haves. Think: Carrie Bradshaw's narcissistic 'wedding list' (minus Manolos)...

Yet to meet Prince Charming? It takes a lot of frog-kissing to find a 'Mr. Right' so make sure you're equipped for your quest with the Lipstick Queen's {Frog Prince} - this magical pH-adaptive lipstick (and gloss) go from green to gorgeous when applied. Pucker up!

In need of a good pluck? Look no further than Rubis's {Christmas Star Tweezers}. In gold or silver, these precision tools are Swiss-made and certain to leave you satisfied - gripping and eliminating even tiny hairs to leave brows beautiful (and top lips 'tache-less).

With party season fast approaching, ensure that you're prepped for fortuitous 'mistletoe moments' with one of Beauty Bakerie's long-wear {Lip Whips} - in a spectrum of stunning shades, from nude-y hues to high-impact {metallics}, there's a colour for every outfit and occasion.

Enhance your powers of attraction with Charlotte Tilbury's {Scent of a Dream} - a mystical fragrance that's sure to bewitch and bewilder. With joyful, confidence-boosting top notes, 'fleurotic' heart notes and an alluring, 'psychoactive' base that mimics your natural pheremones, it's both hyper-feminine and irresistibly seductive - perfect when you want to feel beguiling but emboldened.

Celebrate the liberty that comes with single status to stay at home and slip beneath a {sheet mask} - without the risk of inflicting a panic attack (we think sheet masks should come with a public health warning). Totally terrifying during, the results are well worth looking like a horror movie villain...

And because you're lucky enough not to share your precious sleeping space, invest in a {Silk Pillowcase} and sleep the peaceful slumber of a singleton whose sheets aren't being muddied by another. Kind to skin and hair, the silk helps to keep blemishes at bay, while leaving your face feeling soft (and looking lineless).

Happy Singles' Day people. Go forth and congratulate yourself for being AWESOME.
