Winter Beauty Picks

Winter Beauty Picks
I feel like this Winter has been one of the coldest I can remember. Although it's not even February yet and I'm already dreaming of the warmer, Spring days, I have been embracing this season fully. This has made me reminisce over the past couple of months and the beauty products I have been loving. From deep hydrating treatments to fresh, new makeup additions, I am sharing with you my top Winter beauty picks today. 

The Lush Prince Charming Shower Cream has been a new addition to my bath time routine as this marshmallow scented offering nourishes the skin whilst you bathe, keeping my dehydrated body moisturised. Another way I've been ensuring that my dry skin is kept at bay is by body brushing using my Mio Body Brush. This enables me to exfoliate my body quickly, whilst promoting circulation, I like to do it both dry and in the bath for an all over glow. 

Luckily I got quite a few new perfumes for Christmas so my collection is now overflowing. My top pick is currently the Paco Rabanne OlympĂ©a fragrance which delivers a grown up, lingering scent that has notes of salty vanilla, cashmere wood and green mandarin. 

I have upped my skincare during this season, but I haven't trialled many new products lately as I've opted for old favourites instead. The Aesop Fabulous Face Oil* is perfect for my parched Winter skin as it gives me a radiance boost which is great for under makeup, whilst it works as a dreamy overnight treatment. Another skincare favourite of mine has been the Pixi Glow Tonic, which pretty much does what it says on the tin - Add a healthy glow, whilst banishing dry areas and pesky blemishes. 

Although I love dewy skin, I do like to control how much glow I have. I've recently re-discovered the Nars Soft Velvet Loose Powder, a flesh toned face powder that helps to banish excess oil and keep my makeup looking fresher for longer. As for blusher, I have been smitten with the NYX Ombre Mauve Me Blush lately as it perks up the skin without adding any excessive glitter to the face. I've been loving using a matte brown eyeshadow through my crease and a highlighter, specifically The Balm's Mary Lou Manizer in the inner corners of my eyes to brighten and define. Talking of highlighter, the Cover FX Moonlight Enhancer Drops were introduced to my routine back in the Autumn, but during these Winter months I have been reaching for it more and more to give a healthy sheen to my cheeks. 

What have you been loving using this Winter?
