Make Up Must Haves – Winter 2018

Generally I like to keep my make up routine super simple, mainly because, Kids. lol. However even on the *rare* night out, I still stick to my usual favourites. In winter my skin gets absolutely smashed, it doesn’t appreciate the cold air – and dries up immensely. I try to limit the use of foundations / tinted moisturisers – as I find when I use facial products to remove them at the end of the day, that they really impact on the dryness in my skin. Most days I use the Perricone MD moisturiser – as I really need that additional moisture in winter.

These are my ‘go-to’ products, and a very rarely stray from this pack! I love love LOVEEE the Smashbox Contour sticks – and for a novice like me, they are so easy to use. Honestly, none of these products require a degree to use – they are all very simple and user friendly, which is why I constantly finding myself staying with them.

I’ve also got the it Cosmetics illuminating concealer (it is located right next to the CC cream in Sephora) and it is fab for those days where you just didn’t get enough sleep, or when you’re trying to hide your ‘puberty in your 30’s’ lol. You definitely need need to rub it between two fingers before patting it on, to warm it up so its more workable. I unfortunately forgot to take a photo of it whilst I was doing these images. But it’s definitely amongst this group of faves.

I hope you found this little round up useful and find some new favourite products amongst these :). As always I love to hear when you try products I’ve suggested, and your thoughts!
