best of {winter beauty}

December 28, 2011


Oftentimes when it comes to be Winter, I change up my beauty routine. I seek more moisture, festive colors and skin savers. Therefore I thought I’d round up some of my current (and most beloved) beauty products for this time of year. Especially if, like me, you’re hitting the stores this week for some post-Christmas shopping 🙂

1. Bliss fabulips lip balm, $16*

This new lip balm from a favorite of mine, Bliss, saturates in moisture and is just what I need to escape chapped lips. (Another Bliss favorite here.)

2. Benefit Hervana Blush, $28*

I have a major obsession with Benefit (examples here and here among many others) so was uber excited to get to try out their new blush Hervana. It is the perfect subtle glow that gives you the “I’ve just been outside and my cheeks got all rosy” look without having to actually bear the elements. (Also, very excited to try these when I get back to New York.)

3. butter LONDON ‘Chancer,’ $14*
butter LONDON nail lacquers are awesome and this is the perfect red for this season.

4. Estee Lauder Pure Color Gloss in Garnet Desire, $20*
With my lips being a bit more dry during the winter, I tend to reach for glosses over lipsticks and the Pure Color ones by Estee Lauder not only smell fantastic, they give a sweep of instant color to punch up your look.

5. DDF Salicylic Wash, $38

Even though it’s cold out, my skin tends to flare up year round and I recently bought this wash to fight the oh so lovely acne popping up here and there. It’s mild yet powerful, hardly has any scent and is in a huge bottle that will last me months.

6. Estee Lauder Pore Minimizing Skin Refinisher 1oz, $46*
My morning routine has consisted of using this pore minimizer as a little secret weapon. Combine it with your primer in your palm and you’ve got a perfect palette off of which to apply makeup.

7. TRESemme Dry Shampoo, $5

One word: lifesaver. My hair tends to get brittle at this time of year so I aim to wash it every other day. To get me by the in-between days, I rely on this super cheap dry shampoo.

What products or tricks get you through this time of year?
