Winter Makeup Routine

One of my favorite things about the weather changing is experimenting with new makeup products. For many years this was more of a hassle and tragedy than fun as I have naturally dry skin skin. By changing up my nightly skin care routine I'm now able to have more fun with my makeup! Taking care of my skin first has taught me to never flake out on moisturizer. My winter makeup routine consists of mixing foundation, concealers, and anything else I can think of, together to make my skin nice and dewy even when it's only twenty-something degrees out and your humidifier is busted.

Check out my recent favorite products and I also have a new video too! You can find it at the end of this post.

After priming my skin, I like to mix a generous amount of the Clinique Moisture Surge with my Laura Mercier foundation and eye concealer to amp up my skin even more. The foundation itself is already pretty hydrating, you have to shake the tube at least ten seconds to mix the pigments and liquid together before applying. 

Another recent favorite is this Amazonian clay 12-hr blush in Exposed from Tarte. I love their products and blushes and asked for a more winter appropriate shade for Christmas and I have been loving this color ever since. I focus my blush color towards the edges of my face and pretty high up on my cheek bones.

To set my makeup I've been using the Make Up Forever HD powder. I love translucent powders. This pressed powder feels amazing on my fingers and makes my skin look amazing once I've finished my makeup routine. 

I've been hooked on Revlon balm stains for what feels like years and I can't get enough of the shade, Crush. It was perfect for the fall months and I guess it's perfect for the winter months too since I can't stop using it. My complexion tends favors deep wine and berry colors more than it does bubble gum pinks and certain reds.
