Today I want to talk about my winter beauty favourites. To be honest, I haven’t been trying out a ton of new makeup recently because I have so much and want to actually use out the ones I do have. But there are some products that I’ve been loving even more now that it’s winter.
During the winter months I LOVE to have a fresh-faced glowy, natural look to my face (except during the holidays in which case give me ALLL of the glam!). All of the products that I’m sharing today help me achieve that look in one way or another. Some of these products are skincare, because let’s face it – your skin definitely has different needs when its cold and dry outside. The rest are makeup, and I’ve chosen them specifically because they work the best for my dry winter skin and help me achieve that overall glowy, natural makeup look that I’m after.
Let’s get started with SKINCARE.
NuVsio Mineral Balm – I’ve raved about this product before and I love it even more now that we’re in the heart of winter! It contains ancient minerals that help provide a barrier to your skin to protect it, repair it, and support healthy glowing skin. Umm yes please! I love this for keeping my skin hydrated and protected during this cold, dry weather.
Frankincense Essential Oil – OK, so maybe this isn’t your “typical” skincare product, but trust me this is a MUST-HAVE! It promotes the appearance of healthy-looking skin and leaves your skin literally GLOWING! I use it every night before I sleep and my skin has never looked better.
Young Living Poppy Seed Lip Scrub – Winter weather means dry, chapped lips and nobody has time for that! I love this poppy seed lip scrub because it helps exfoliate away all of that dry skin while leaving your lips soft and smooth.
Young Living Dry Skin Serum – OK, this one I don’t use for my face but it would definitely work for that as well. If you’re like me, then you have a SERIOUS case of the dry winter hands. No joke guys, my hands get BAD! Like embarrassingly dry and cracked. And what’s worse is that my job involves washing my hands A LOT, which results in them getting even more dry. I recently started using this dry skin serum and WOW. It massages right into my skin without leaving my skin oily, and it makes my hands so soft and hydrated.
Now for some MAKEUP.
Maybelline Superstay 24H Foundation (shade 330 Toffee) – I have been LOVING this foundation ever since I started using it. It offers great coverage and looks so natural on the skin without feeling too heavy or cakey. I’ve been using this all winter when I want to achieve a full face glowy goddess look.
Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour blush (shade Feisty) – You know how your cheeks turn all rosy and pink when you spend too long out in the cold? I kind of love that look (to a certain extent of course!). I like having a little extra colour to my cheeks in the winter to help achieve that glowy look, and this blush just does it for me. I don’t have to use too much and it looks great all day!
Lancôme Monsieur Big – Between the big chunky scarf, your hat, and all of the other warm winter gear you need to bundle up, it sometimes feels like your eyes are the only thing left showing. Because of that, I like my eyes to stand out, which means I need a mascara that makes my lashes look bold and beautiful. The Lancome Monsieur Big mascara does exactly that plus some, which is why it’s one of my absolute faves!
Tarte Creaseless Concealer (shade 325 Medium Sand) – As I mentioned above, I like my eyes to stand out, and dark circles under your eyes just don’t cut it. A good concealer is KEY to achieving a fresh face. I’ve been loving this Tarte concealer all winter because it doesn’t dry out my under eyes, gives me really great coverage, and keeps it bright throughout the day.
ColourPop Crème Lux Lipstick – I absolutely love the formula of this lipstick because it is so creamy and hydrating, which means it does NOT dry out my lips. Umm yes please! In the winter months, I love a nude lip to keep with that fresh-face natural look, and the shade Pinkies Up is perfection. It’s a rosey nude which gives the right amount of colour while still looking natural.
Tarteist Pro-Glow Palette (shade Lit) – Last, but certainly not least, you cannot achieve a fresh, glowy look without HIGHLIGHT. I’ve been absolutely loving this highlight from the Pro-Glow Palette because it works perfectly with my complexion, gives me the perfect amount of glow without being too subtle or too intense, and takes my makeup to the next level.
I’ve been reaching for all of these products literally ALL winter long! I use them daily and have been loving the way my makeup looks so natural and fresh. Even when I go out somewhere special and opt for a full glam look, I use these products as my base and build from there. They have definitely become my ride-or-dies this winter.
