Winter Wonders! Makeup Essentials

Here are some of the products I have been loving for the colder weather! These products are my most used product that have worked well for my skin and weather.


I have normal to dry skin, in the winter more dry, I decided to try out a new moisturizer. I used some of my points to get the Philosophy “back to nurture, replenishment” from Sephora and am in love! Β It is not too think, and have not had dry skin since I started using this. I apply nightly and in the mornings along with the Artistry Essentials replenishing eye creme, which smells and works amazing!

For my primer, the Porefessional and Baby Skin (drugstore-maybelline) are silk-like which provides me with a flawless application of my foundation to dry smoothly. I have been using Laura Mercier silk-creme foundation, for the purpose of how the finish is not dry. It does not dry up my skin nor is it too thick. It is a great long wear foundation and a little goes a long way!

During the winter my under eyes tend to look darker than usual, I have been using the Instant Age Rewind that contains vitamin C, I would not say it has helped treat my eyes, but does a great job covering it up! For my eyeshadows, I have been trying out new cream shadows and my favorite that I use daily is the Color Tattoo in 55 Inked Pink. It last all day, literally 24hr, and is a ice base for a neutral eyeshadow look.

No matter what time of the year, eyebrow game needs to be strong, I have been using the GimmieBrow from Benefit daily, I fee it sets them nicely without having to add more product like powders or pencil into the brow which at times can cause dryness. I have heard great things from Kat Von D, Tattoo Liner and it is amazing! I love the formula but the point of the felt is more percise than i’m use to, but it is long-lasting!
