Hey there, lovelies! Today, I want to take some time to share some of my winter beauty faves with you all! Last fall, my sister encouraged me to do a beauty round-up post, as she loves getting makeup and general beauty suggestions from me. Well, I took her recommendation and it was a hit! You all expressed that you enjoyed it, so I decided to make these seasonal beauty posts a reoccurring series here on CWS.
WHAT I’M LOVING FOR BEAUTY THIS WINTER:
I thought it’d be practical if I separated all of my beauty favorites into categories! The categories I’m sharing with you today are: hair care, skin care, nail care, and lip care! Enjoy, beauties!
SKIN CARE FAVORITES:
Nip + Fab Glycolic Fix Scrub // When it comes to skin care products, I always need to have a productive scrub on hand at all times. This scrub by Nip + Fab is by far one of my favorite scrubs. It gets rid of dead skin cells and leaves your skin feeling polished and energized. I was sent this product complimentary by the brand, but once this tube is all gone (which will be very soon) I’ll be purchasing this myself from now on. It also has the best grapefruit scent ever!
OLLY’s Undeniable Beauty Gummy Supplements // OLLY has been sending me PR samples since the summertime and ever since, they’ve become my go-to for any kind of vitamins or supplements I need. These Undeniable Beauty gummies are a blend of Biotin, Vitamins C, E, and Borage Oil. Biotin is essential for the growth of healthy hair, nails, and skin cells! My nails tend to peel easily and my hair takes forever to grow, but since taking these Undeniable Beauty supplements since October, I’ve been noticing a change! They taste great, too!
bareMinerals SkinLongevity Vital Power Infusion Serum // I was never a serum girl until my best friend Kristen from A Classy Fashionista made me try bareMinerals SkinLongevity. SkinLongevity helps to nourish your skin with essential minerals and hydration to reveal softer, more supple & youthful skin. It’s a skin care routine must have! Grab your’s here for $10 off the regular price!
LIP CARE FAVORITES:
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Hex // Over the past year, I have pushed myself out of my nudes and pinks comfort zone when it comes to lip colors, and I have embrace dark lip colors. I just got this UD Vice Lipstick in Hex with a gift card I got for Christmas and I am in love with it! It’s perfectly matte and stays on for hours.
Revlon ColorStay Lipliner in Nude // Believe it or not, the first time I ever wore lipliner in my life was just a few months ago. And oh my gosh, it has changed my lip game! I’ve been loving Revlon’s ColorStay Lipliner in Nude, as it works with all of my neutrals and is easy to conceal with my darker lip colors.
LipSense Lipstick & Starter Kit // A few weeks ago my good friend Katelyn recommended that I give LipSense a try, as I’m a huge lipstick lover. She sent me a starter kit (1 color, 1 gloss, 1 oops remover) and I fell in love after the first day I used it. I applied my LipSense at about 10:00 am and it didn’t come off until I took it off at about 10:00 pm. No joke. I’m being for real right now. Yes, I ate and drank and it stayed on! LipSense isn’t just great because of its long-lasting wear, but also because of its exfoliating process.
HAIR CARE FAVORITES:
L’Oreal Paris Hair Expert Color Vibrancy Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner // Earlier this week I received a new voxbox from Influenster and it was for L’Oreal’s new Color Vibrancy Intensive products! I started using them the day after they came in the mail and in just a few days of using it, I’m seeing a different in the vibrancy of my color. As a blonde, I need my hair to always stay as bright as it can. The way the shampoo and conditioner nourishes my hair is perfect to fight any wintertime dryness!
KERACOLOR Purify Plus Lite // This leave-in conditioning treatment is a holy grail product for my blonde hair! So if you’re a blondie, listen up! This is a keratin based treatment that helps to neutralize chlorine and trace minerals to preserve the color and vibrancy of your hair! It also helps to stop mineral build up, while providing softness, shine, and body!
NAIL CARE FAVORITES:
OPI Nail Envy Nail Strengthener // I am a sucker for anything nail polish related. I enjoy getting my nails done professionally here and there, but honestly I’m too rough on my nails to want to pay the money to keep them up, haha. I do enjoy painting my own nails, though! I have been using this nail strengthener since the summertime and it’s a lifesaver! If you’re dealing with weak nails, give this one a try!
Essie in After School Boy Blazer // Essie is one of my favorite nail polish brands, as they have a great color variety and are very long-lasting. This blue-black shade is perfect for the wintertime blues.
China Glaze in Below Deck // This winter I have been flocking to the deep purples and mauves for everything – sweaters, scarves, and nail polish. This neutral purple hue brings me life during the winter.
There you have it – my winter beauty favorites for this year! Let me know if you have any questions about any of these products! I’d be glad to help you out. 🙂
