The shift in season implies it is time for an upgrade of your makeup routine to avoid the drying spell your skin will undergo otherwise. Here is a list of all the makeup mist-haves for this winter season.
If you get the “winter flake” then using a primer will help keep your foundation and concealer stay smooth. A primer is silicon based product so it moisturizes the skin lightly leaving a smooth texture for the next layers to settle on. Rubbing a little on the cheeks, under eye area, around the chose and the chin helps everything settle in place and prevents make up from sliding off.
A number 1 winter makeup must have is a hydrating foundation. The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea foundation and NARS Sheer Glow Foundation have some of the best results. Cosmetics CC+ Cream is also a promising product for minimal coverage in a busy day.
Tarte Shape Tape Concealer and Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer are all the treatment your dark circles need this winter.
Eye shadow Palette:
The Huda Beauty Obsessions Eye shadow Palette and the Tarte Toasted Eye shadow Palette have all the shades of vibrancy and nudes that you need to highlight your inner/outer corners and finish the crease with.
The secret to keep your lashes looking long is to be sure to use products that keep the lashes soft and Laura Mercier’s Caviar Volume Panoramic Mascara does just that.
Using a gel liner on the upper lid and a pencil liner on the waterline gives the eye a variety of texture and the subtle edge you need to stand out at a party.
A good bronzer is all you need to accentuate your face. My go-to is the Hoola Matte Bronzer by Benefit Cosmetics which sets like magic and balances the dewy foundation perfectly.
Blush and Highlighter Palette:
To create the perfect “red-carpet look” a must have is the KAT VON D/ Fetish Blush + Highlighter Palette.
Any lip balm available at the nearby drug-store will do the job but if there is one that will never fail you it is the Body Shop Vitamin E Lip Care SPF 15 which provides sun protection and conditions chapped lips.
The L.A. Girl Matte Flat Velvet Lipstick is a line with numerous shades and a texture so soft and velvety it provides the perfect matte finish to any winter make up look.
