Winter Makeup Bag Essentials

As we hit the peak of winter, it's time we embraced the dark hues, warm glows and that flawless foundation look. These are our go-to winter products that ensure a long lasting look. After all, who could pass up a statement eye, especially when it lasts till the end of the day. 

 

1.  Lancôme Teint Miracle Foundation

If you're like us and hate that cake face feel, then it is time you met the baby sister to Lancôme Ultra Wear Foundation, Teint Miracle. This foundation is the perfect match for winter skin, giving it that healthy glow we miss during the cold months. It hydrates and nourishes dry skin but it avoids oil and conglomerating on the surface. This allows for a flawless look that lasts all day while avoiding any unwanted acne.

 

2.  Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick

From an easy foundation application to the birth of my favourite concealer - ever. The Hourglass Vanish Foundation Stick was gifted to us for what we thought was the perfect compact foundation. It was not until one morning where we forgot our foundation, that we began concealing our under eye and our favourite concealer was born. Silky, hydrating and providing the ultimate coverage - this compact baby has it all.

 

3. Estée Lauder Pure Colour Love Lipstick

If you were after the ultimate statement red lipstick then look no further than Bar Red. This shell-shocking drop from Estée Lauder's newest range has us in pure love. Known for their chic and sophisticated take on beauty, each lipstick has an angled tip for perfect precision when applying. Yes, you can skip the lip liner altogether. 

 

4. Essie Winter 2017 Nail Polish

Nothing says "I have my shit together" quite like a fresh and seasonal coloured manicure. The new winter 2017 range from Essie has a plethora of stunning hues from dashing golds to our favourite and featured, ready to boa. Splash some on a pair of manicured hands to top off any winter outfit with that "I've got my shit together" look.

 

5. Mecca Cosmetica Enlightened Lit From Within Illuminating Balm

Meet your makeup bag's new best friend. The Mecca Cosmetica Illuminating Balm was born after the success of its sister, Lit From Within Illuminating Primer. This guy will follow you wherever you go, giving you that polished, glowing feel from start to finish. The warm and easy to apply balm complements the skin tone without overpowering the upper cheek area. A natural looking glow is enhanced through hydrating ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil and Castor Seed Oil, giving your skin everything it needs to combat the winter air.
