Winter Makeup Menu

As the gloomy and dry months approach, I’ve decided to switch up some of the products I use in my daily beauty routine to go along with this change. I thought it deserved an announcement, as I am loving this routine! 

 
I’ve decided to replace my light weight & natural foundation for a thicker one to add moisture and coverage as my skin is taking a toll from the sudden harsh weather! (expect a skincare update soon, as I am loving my current SC routine also!) 
 
Here’s the stitch
 
I added a primer back into my routine to coincide with my inevitably pasty foundation! I’ve been using an old cult favorite, MAC’s Studio Fix! An undoubtedly heavier feel and look, yet simply flawless coverage! Queue China Doll porcelain skin images; this will be you! Yes, even us oily skin gals can afford to add a few extra layers this time of year. We’ve layered our clothing so layer your makeup also? Yea, we’ll go with it. 😉 
The rest of my makeup hasn’t changed much except I’ve been using a warmer color pallet to compliment my winter wardrobe. 
 
Favorites as of late: (As seen in the picture above) 
  • Bare Minerals, 5 in 1 Cream Eyeshadow (Primer) – “Candlelit Peach”: a warmer base to go along with warmer shadows. Locks and loads your shadow & my mother uses it for concealer and swears by it… WINNING! 
  • YSL, Touche Eclat – “#5, Luminous Honey”: simply put, it’s an old cult favorite for a reason! You want to own this, girl! It’ll give you that lumi glow to you’re dull skin you’re having because of the dry weather. 
  • Dior, Bronze – “Original Tan”: No longer available but any bronzer will do. I’m in that, I’m obsessed with bronzer and have neglected all other blush options phase. Bear with me. 
  • Maybelline Color Riche Moisture Matte Lipstick – “Over Dyed”: *Insert heart eyes emoji here* Extremely rich payoff, truly matte, yet not too dry; best lipstick I’ve used recently, hands down! P.S. I was wearing a simple gloss for this picture, I will feature these lipsticks possibly in another post.

In light of my enemy, winter, stay warm!  
 
Best,
