Let's Talk Beauty: Winter Favorites.....

March 5, 2018

 Seasons come and go. With each season comes new things, aspirations, goals, and hopes. We are already in the third month of the year, and the new season, Spring, is just around the corner. I hope this new month and season bring you great joy and I also hope that you open your mind and heart to see beauty all around you.

In the fashion and beauty world, a new season means new trends, fads, and beauty products. However, before I get caught up in the new trends and beauty products for the next season, I wanted to share with you all my winter beauty favorites. These are the products that I have been loving and have been a staple in my beauty basket for this season.

My Favorites...

  ~ Makeup
  • Colourpop's Bae Area highlighter - I love this highlighter. It gives you a subtle glow and a little goes a long way.
  • MAC's blush in Fever - this blush is beautiful and I love how natural it looks on me. And it is pigmented as well. We tend to get paler during the winter, so using a beautiful, pigmented, pink blush helps bring color back to our face.
  • NARS radiant creamy concealer in Hazelnut -  I love this concealer and the natural finish it gives.
  ~ Skincare
  • The Ordinary - I have been loving the products from this brand, also they are very affordable. Check out my full review of this brand here.
  • Purity by Philosophy - this cleanser is an essential in my beauty basket. I have been using this cleanser since I was high school, and I keep going back to it whenever I feel like nothing else is working for my skin. 

 ~ Lipcare... we all know how drying our skin gets during the winter, and our lips are definitely no exception. These are the products I have been using for my lips...
  • EOS lip balm - I love this lip balm. I keep this lip balm in my crossbody body bag just in case I'm running late and I forget to grab a lip balm, then I use this one.
  • L'occitane's 100% shea butter - this has now become my go-to lip balm, and I keep it in my backpack so I don't forget it. You can use this product for anything- I just use it as a lip balm. It keeps my lips moisturized for a good period of time and it does not feel sticky at all.
  • Vaseline - this product is a must for all seasons, and everyone should have one in their beauty bag. 
   ~ Handcare... I feel like one of the areas most people neglect are our hands. It is so important to moisturize your hands right after you wash hands to avoid dry, crack hands. I have extremely dry hands and if I don't apply moisturizer, they look ugly and dry. I used to keep a hand cream in my bag pack but it wasn't as effective as this one.
  • L'occitane's hand cream - this product has 20% of shea butter and the smell is amazing. It smells like some type of baby lotion.

These products have been by my side this season and I love every single one of hem

I hope you enjoy reading!
