Sometimes it too cold in the morning to do a full make up look, so in the winter I like to keep it minimal. Also I’m third year at uni now so in the morning I need a quick and simple look that I can do within 10 mins and just change the lippie every time. Not going to lie I usually stick to a set few lippies and need to start using them all.
Primer: I love the Too Faced Hangerover primer, its so moisturising and great for the skin in the winter months. To be honest I haven’t used any other primer since I got this one and I think I need a new one soon.
Foundation: I usually use my beloved Mac Studio Fix in the shade NC44 but this month I have been trying out the Make Up Forever HD Foundation and so far I am loving it. My foundation collection is definitely growing, and I want to try more.
Concealer: There are so many concealers in my makeup collection but I always reach out for my Maybelline Eye Eraser (can never remember the full name, ha). I love the coverage it gives and also how it brightens my eyes too.
Setting powder: I usually use either a shade from the Kat Von D palette or the Soap & Glory kick ass powder. When I’m travelling it’s easier for me to take the Kat Von D palette because it has a variety of shades and that means I don’t have to carry loads with me.
Contour: Kat Von D contour shades are my favourites and close second is the Bahama Mama powder by theBalm. Again I usually just have the KVD palette when I’m travelling but some times I like bronzing instead of contouring.
Eyeshadow: I don’t always wear eyeshadow but if I want to add a little bit of colour/sparkle then I just use the Mac eyeshadow in the shade ‘woodwinked’ its a pretty dual toned colour and doesn’t take long to apply and blend out.
Eyeliner: For my everyday look I’ve stopped doing eyeliner. I think it looks more natural when I don’t do it so I leave it out most of the time. But there are times when I feel like doing a liner to add a little bit extra to the look.
Mascara: I don’t have a specific one that I use everyday, I like using a different ones most of the time. I also like layering two together. I’m currently trying the Mac Zoom lash mascara and loving the length it gives to my lashes.
Eyebrows: Gel brow gel all the way! I finished the MAC brow gel a month and half ago so I started using the NYX brow gel. It’s not too bad but I feel like its more on the cool tone side, it does the job though so it’s okay for now.
Lipsticks: For winter I like staying more on the natural side, so I use more nudes. But there are times when I want something bold so I don’t have any set lippies. Some that I have currently been wearing a lot are: Huda Beauty Spice Girl; Mac Whirl and Colourpop Avenue. In my look today I’m wearing Colourpop Tulle.
Lip Liners: I don’t have any favourites that I always reach for so I just match the liner to the lipstick and go with that.
Finishing spray: I alternate between my finishing sprays but my favourites are UD All nighter spray and MUF Mist & Fix.
What is your winter make up look? Also let me know down below what you think of my look. Next time I hope to do a tutorial if I have the confidence, ha.
