This winter weather is unkind to us and to our skin. Luckily, we live in a world with an abundance of make up and skin care products.
If you’re looking for some basics that create a healthy glow, because we’re all ghostly right now, look no further. My winter babe essentials consist of Natura Bissé Oxygen Cream, Chanel Les Beiges Healthy Glow Fluid, Benefit Gimme Brow, and Avène Cold Cream Lip Balm.
Dry skin is not a cute look on anyone. The Oxygen Cream makes your skin feel refreshed with its rehydrating powers. It helps smooth out your skin so that you have an even canvas for whatever is applied next.
The Healthy Glow Fluid works as a highlighter for your skin. It brightens up your complexion—we can all use some major brightening during this time of the year— while also masking little imperfections. It’s extremely light, so the skin underneath can still completely breathe.
Benefit Gimme Brow is a must have. It makes eyebrows look fuller, while simultaneously darkening them. Love.
I require lip balm on me at all times. My lips get dangerously dry. No one wants to kiss a girl with flakey lips. Not chic. The Cold Cream Lip Balm prevents this indecency from happening and leaves a shimmery coat on my lips. Chic.
If I feel like getting more dressed up, I put mascara and lipstick on in addition to my winter babe essentials. I use Benefit They’re Real! Mascara and MAC lipstick. The mascara works in a light and natural way, enhancing your already beautiful lashes. I mean, what’s worse than goopy eyelashes?
My lipstick color choice ranges from nude to very dark purple. I wear MAC’s Myth when I want a light color on my lips and switch to MAC’s Smoked Purple when I want something more badass.
But I’m still badass when wearing a light lip.
