My Winter Beauty Routine

My Winter Beauty Routine

I am really feeling my winter beauty routine, and so, of course, I wanted to share it.  I love products that can make my skin feel soft and glowy, even in the darkest of winter days.  I’m currently loving these items in my beauty bag.

First, I moisturize fully with these products.  Something about the oil and moisturizer combination of these products handles my super-sensitive dry wintry skin and renders it soft and smooth and happy (which is quite an undertaking in the winter months).

Next, I apply Lune & Aster CC cream with a nude Beauty Blender.  I’d never used one of these before, but it works so well.  It’s also perfect for travel, which I’ve been doing a lot of lately.  And the nude color is my favorite because it doesn’t look dirty when it has product on it.

Next, I’ve been using Makeup Forever Ultra HD concealer (also applied with the Beauty Blender).  As the name suggests, it’s perf at blending.  Once those two steps are complete, I move on to color.

I am loving Laura Mercier’s Face Illuminating Powder in Addiction as bronzer.  It looks metallic in the compact, but goes on sheer with the slightest hint of shimmer.  It gives your skin a glowy touch of color, even in the dead of winter.  Thanks, Laura Mercier!  This is priceless!  I apply it with Marc Jacob’s genius bronzer brush.

Then I add Becca’s Flowerchild blush and Champagne Pop as highlighter (the compact with both products together is sold out, but you can buy each separately).  I use my forever-favorite Bobbi Brown Blush Brush to do this.

Next I line my upper eyelid with MAC’s Photogravure, quickly curl my lashes with Surratt Beauty’s Eyelash Curler, and top with MAC’s Extended Play Gigablack Lash Mascara.

Done and done.  It’s all super fast and super glowy.  Your face will look like a little bit of summer even on the coldest days!
