I have another seasonal beauty edit for you today! I thought I'd share my top beauty picks for winter. I haven't included facial skin care because I've spoken in depth about them previously. You can read all about them here. So without further ado:
I seriously feel the cold so slapping on cold body cream after getting out the shower is not something I want to do. But this offering from Vaseline takes all the effort out of moisturising. You literally spray and go, as the name suggests. This also relieves dry skin instantly and absorbs instantly, leaving behind no residue just super soft, nourished skin! A must for winter!
Along with my skin drying out in the colder months my hair does too. I used to swear by my trusty Lee Stafford hair mask but since discovering this, it has been somewhat neglected! This stuff is amazing! If dry, damaged, dull is your problem, this is your answer! This is blended with Argan oil and camellia oils to instantly relieve dry and dull hair. Leaving you with soft hair that's full of life. I use this every time I wash mine and leave it in for 5-10 minutes for best results!
For extra hydration which is essential (for me anyway) in winter this Elemis Flash been does the job like not other. I've been using this a primer for an instant radiance boost and smooth base ready for make up application. This has non greasy and has no residue - a perfect edition to any winter beauty routine!
What time of year is more perfect to rock matte skin than winter? Estee Lauder has you covered with this brilliant foundation. If like me dryness or dehydration is a problem and matte foundation can be a bit of no go, than this is foundation for you! This achieves flawless, matte (but luminous) looking skin in a long lasting formula - that doesn't cake or dry skin out. If you have really dry skin I'd recommend using a good hydration primer and moisturiser first.
My eye palette of choice is this beauty from Zoeva. It has a range of matte, shimmers and satin finishes all with rose gold and copper hues. I love a copper smokey eye and this palette is perfect for creating one. The rose gold shades offers a twist on this look which is perfect for the winter season. The formula of this palette is brilliant all the shadows are buttery smooth, easy to blend and well pigmented!
Trying to achieve those super model cheek bones is an all year round thing for me. And this contour kit from Maybelline is perfect. I have the darkest shade. The contour shade is a good cool tone so wont make you look like you've smeared round you face! And the highlight shade sets the contour off nicely - its not to shimmery or glittery, just a lovely subtle glow!
Winter weather calls for dark vampy shades! And this Revlon lips is no exception. Its a deep purple colour that's not for the faint hearted! But I love it. And the formula of these lipsticks is brilliant. They're infused with Vitamin E to instantly hydrate lips in a long wearing formula!
Essie Cashmere Matte Nail Polish In the shade Wrap me Up // £7.99
To tell the truth I'm actually getting a bit bored of dark nails now. I'm a lover of nude / white nails and I love they way they make me look super tanned. This polish is perfect for those days! Its from their cashmere matte line which means the finish is matte with a soft pearl colour. The shade is a lovely soft off white colour with slight pink under tones. I oddly cant find this on any Uk websites to link for you guys, I did however, get mine from Boots.
This shade sums up winter in a nail polish! This offering from Essie is a beautiful deep red wine colour with purple undertones. And was my go to all Autumn!
