Winters for my beauty regimen are long & dry- & kind of sad. When thinking of the topic I wanted to talk about red lips, glittering eyes, rosy cheeks…but then I decided to be honest. Brutally. What product do I NEED to survive? & here they are!
Smashbox Photo Finish Hydrating Under Eye Primer– This won’t come as any surprise if you saw my haul & review earlier in the winter season! I suffer from dry undereyes much of the cold months & even have to battle eczema in the area. This undereye primer helps brighten, plump, & hydrate the area leaving my undereyes looking great…& not like leather.
It Cosmetics Hello Light Creme Illuminator– The best of the best in natural illumination…without any powder! It Cosmetics really puts the most amazing ingredients into their products & many of them are absolutely dry skin friendly. This one is gorgeous & you have to see my full review here!
Bite Agave Lip Mask– Dry lips during the winter? You’re defintiely not alone. At least I’m there with you- we can sit in the shame corner together. But wait…there’s an option! Over the winter I’ve totally fallen in love with this lip mask which I’ve been trying to apply every night to really get a deep treatment. I also want the tinted options!
It Cosmetics No. 50 Serum Collagen Veil Anti-Aging Primer– The most hydrating, flawless primer I own. Everything about it makes my skin look plumper, less dry, & just overall better. Plus it makes even drugstore foundations look high-end! I have a full review here! If you have dry skin in winter or throughout the year I’d say this is a must!
Water– Maybe most of you will consider this one lame- but I’m way serious. Although water intake is super important year round- I really try to focus even more on it during the winter when every glass really counts. It aids in weight-loss & overall health & I’m a firm believer it helps my dry skin! Pictured here is a bottle from Icelandic Glacial– a tasty natural spring water from Iceland.
