The Edit | The Winter Face

It definitely feels like Winter has set in now, because of this i've found i've been going for a more simple makekup look; mainly so I can spend more time in bed where it's nice and warm. One of my favourite things to do is where a bright lip which looks best with minimal eye makeup and natural skin.
The Edit | The Winter Face
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Starting with that natural base, i'm still loving the Rimmel Lasting Finish Nude foundation as it feels very light on the skin whilst nicely perfecting everything. It doesn't cover deep redness or all blemishes so I dab on some Maybelline Fit Me Concealer where needed which blends very easily due to it's creamy consistency. To set things in place with the Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder which is finely milled so helps to give a natural finish to the skin.
Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil
To add some colour, yet keep things simple i've been reaching for the Illamasqua Cream Blush in Dixie. This is a great rosy pink shade which just gives a nice glow to the skin. For brows i'm still loving the Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil which defines the brows nicely whilst looking natural. This has definitely become a big staple in my everyday routine.
Clinique High Impact Mascara
For eyes i've been liking something easy yet a little smokey. To achieve this i've been using the Maybelline Color Tattoo Leather Effect in Creamy Beige. This is matte, deep beige shade that looks great alone or as a base to a smokey eye. Most times I wear it alone with a few coats of the Clinique High Impact Mascara, i've been using this sample or a while and i'm so tempted to get the full size. It's one of the best all round mascara as it adds volume and length to the lashes.
MAC Craving Lipstick
Finally for lips, this is where I chose to add a bit of colour. The first option is the most bold; Revlon Cherries In The Snow. This is a lovely pinky, red shade; even though it's bold it's very wearable. If I want something a bit more neutral i've been reaching for MAC Craving lipstick, this is a warm pink with a hint of plum, yet it's a little bolder than most nudes. It's a great everyday option if you want something a little deeper but not too in your face.

Those are some of my go to products i've been using to quickly get ready yet still look some what put together. I can quickly put all of these on in around 10 minutes which means more time in bed or extra time for a much needed coffee in the morning. What are some the products you're reaching for this Winter?
