Hi Guys ,
Look who’s being productive on the blog this week! I’ve been thinking a lot the past month on how I could change up my makeup and incorporate different products into my daily makeup routine and make my “look” more “Winter appropriate” so I decided to sit down to a lovely cup of tea as the rain beats down outside and write about the products that can simply change up the look of your makeup to make you look like you’re ready to take on Winter!
In the colder months some women tend to get a little drier than usual , so I swap my usual L’Oreal infallible matte foundation for the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, this is a very dewy foundation so it will give you a glow even if you suffer from dry skin.
Winter is all about those dark red , cranberry lips and a staple in my Winter makeup is the Kate Moss Rimmel Lipstick in 107 , this is a much raved about , much loved product in the beauty community and so it should be. It’s an amazing dark red that just makes a statement!
Golden eyes is a must for the winter , it shows off a bit of glitz and glamour and adds that sparkle to your eyes , personally I love golden eyes for the Christmas season because to me it just reminds me of how festive this time of year is! I love adding the Maybelline Colour Tattoo eyeshadow to the center of my lids because it makes your eyes appear bigger and sparkly , keeping with eyeshadow I found a 15 warm coloured eyeshadow Palette on ebay a while back and thought that it would be perfect for creating warm toned looks for the winter. I adore the redish brown in the center for a crease colour to add something a little different to the look.
I don’t know about anyone else but i love glitter during Christmas , sometimes it can be a little bit of a task trying to get rid of any residue it leaves behind , but it adds something new to your makeup. I got the Collection Glam Crystals a while back and wanted to try something different with them , I actually add this to my inner corner of my eye when I do all matte on my eyes , I feel it really makes my eyes pop and its something different and cool for the winter.
Blush is a huge element that could change your makeup for the better during this season! I find deeper blushes to be amazing for this time of year. The Catrice Illuminating Blush in ” I am Nuts about You” is the perfect colour to be going into Winter with.
I tend to use less bronzer during Winter , because I feel I want to keep my makeup looking as season appropriate as possible I also change my foundation to a shade lighter than usual because I feel it flatters the deeper colours a lot more I find highlighting and contouring during the Winter to look a little full on so I do tend not to use a lot of contour and only highlight slightly so I look as natural as possible.
Thanks so much for reading guys , hopefully you found some of this helpful , if you would like a mini tutorial on this look , feel free to comment below and I’ll get to it! if you have any questions leave them below and I’ll get back to you!
