3 Winter Must-Haves

I don’t know about you but my skin deals with a lot of friction during the colder months.  Think about it… From walking through whipping wind to sliding that chunky turtle neck over your head to sitting in an office with one too many space heaters, then back home to more indoor heating, your skin doesn’t really get a break. This leads to chapped, red skin which, if we’re honest, isn’t so cute to look back at in holiday photos.  We want to keep you looking fab as you take on winter so here are 3 must-have items that won’t be leaving your makeup bag until spring has sprung!


 VICHY Aqualia Thermal Eye Balm

As sad as it is, our tans are fading and those designer bags under our eyes are trying to become our top winter accessories. Fight those dark circles with Vichy’s Aquaria Thermal Eye Balm. When you smooth this refreshing and lightweight serum under your eyes not only will you reduce puffiness but you’ll be locking in moisture! So say goodbye to that basset hound look, power through the day, and shimmy your way to your winter activities.


NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dolce Vita

I’m not going to lie, I initially received this bad boy as sample. I fell in love with it instantly! The formula is incredibly soft, glides on like a dream, and doesn’t cause your lips to dry out or peel.   The color is a variation of the mauve tone we all adore but with slight hint of red.  It will definitely perfect your pout as you smirk at that cutie across the room. 


The Estée Edit Skin Glowing Balm

Moisture is key during this time of year, no surprise there. Keeping this in mind, I recommend adding the Estée Edit Skin Glowing Balm to your beauty trove.  This product is a tad denser than your average summer tinted moisturizer, but isn’t as heavy as that foundation you only whip out for VERY formal occasions. As a bonus, it adds a youthful glow while keeping your skin hydrated even after you’ve trekked through sideways sleet to your daily destinations.
