Winter Beauty Essentials 

Winter can be harsh on your skin, so be prepared when the mercury drops. Even in the southern states, the air can be cold and dry. Here a few things I always like to keep on hand.

  1. Clinique Take the Day Off Cleansing Balm, $29.50,Sephora– This cleansing balm starts solid and changes to a liquid from the warmth of your hands. Removes makeup without  being greasy and a little goes a long way. I have combination skin, so I like to use this 1-2 times a week during the winter.
  2. Fresh Sugar Lip Polish, $24, Sephora– Dry, flaky lips no more! This scrub uses brown sugar to exfoliate and shea butter to moisturize. It also smells yummy, but don’t eat it!
  3. Korres Wild Rose Vitamin C Active Brightening Oil, $54, Sephora–  This oil is great on its own, or add a few drops to your favorite moisturizer. Has lots of good things like omega fatty acids, plus Vitamins A&C. It’s a bit pricey, but lasts forever. I’ve had my bottle for about a year and it’s still good to go!
  4. Dr. Jart+ Soothing Hydra Solution Sheet Mask, $6, Sephora– I LOVE sheet masks! They are so great for relieving dry, chapped skin during the winter. This one has aloe, so I always feel super-moisturized after using it. These masks normally have a lot of product, so I always rub the excess on my legs and arms. A nice, inexpensive way to treat yourself!

I hope you enjoyed!

5 Favorite Beauty Must Haves

Everyone has those favorite items that they cannot be without. Here are my top five beauty bag must haves!

  1. Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder, $38, Sephora– It’s pricey, but the container lasts me at least a year. After switching from pressed powder to this loose powder, my jawline breakouts are almost non-existent.
  2. IT! Cosmetics CC Cream SPF 50, $38, Ulta– I really can’t say enough good things about this foundation. It goes on smooth, has awesome coverage, and a high spf.
  3. Tarte Shape Tape, $27, Ulta– This concealer is great for under the eyes and is easy to blend. It comes in a variety of shades and can also be used for contouring/highlighting as well.
  4. Too Faced Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eyeshadow Primer, $20, Ulta– My favorite primer! I have used everything from Stila to Nars, and this works the best. Locks onto eyeshadow, while still allowing you to blend. As you can see by the faded tube, I use it everyday!
  5. Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Color Splash Lipstick in Set Sail, $21, Sephora– I received this in my Sephora Play! box recently and fell in love instantly! Set Sail is the perfect pink/nude color and will usually last me most of the day.

 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Now,  go find your favorite beauty 🙂
