Winter Beauty Favourites

Winter Beauty Favourites 

Hey everyone,

So from Summer to Winter I definitely change the products I use and personally I have always preferred the makeup looks and products that come with Autumn/Winter time. Winter is all about the dark, warm shades which suit my skin tone well. I love all the rich burgundy's and coppers; a lot of shimmery products are brought to the shelves which I adore as it just makes makeup christmasy and festive. I am a big fan of the dark lip so for Winter it's a must that I own a dark red, brown or purple lipstick. I like a nice glow to the face and body in Winter so I am always using a bit of bronzer or some sort of highlight & contour. Although I do love my Lauren's Way fake tan which I once did a review on, in Winter time my skin gets quite dry so I find using a gradual tan which is also a moisturiser works wonders. I always find myself doing a really dark, smokey eye in winter for special occasions so I gather together a little collection of dark eyeshadows I like. Having christmasy nails is a must during winter, I love wearing nail varnish with glitter in. Or just nail varnishes that are festive like colours. I get really dry and sometimes  quite sore lips in Winter so it is vital that I have a lip balm on me, carmex is my personal favourite. In Winter time you can get away with having full on shimmery eyes and a dark lip, that's what I love!
