The cool weather is here and just like your wardrobe, your beauty routine should be updated. The wind, cold and lack of sunshine can leave skin looking dull but adding more exfoliates, oils and hydrating products into your every day beauty routine will do just the trick. Here's 19 products that will keep your skin looking it's best, even when the weather is not.
1. Diorshow new look mascara in black
This mascara is my go-to for big dramatic lashes. Perfect for a night out.
2. Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder
Switch up your shimmery bronzer for a lighter mat one. Swipe a little product on temples, cheekbones and the outer parts of your nose.
3. essie nail color in Stylenomics
Just picked up this colour. A deep green with dark grayish tones. Gives you that dark fall look without it being completely black.
4. Butter London nail lacquar
Have fun by having one sparkly nail, especially great for the holidays.
5. Marc Jacobs beauty lip gel in 131 Saboteur - deep marroon
Ditch your bubble gum pinks for deep hues like purples, maroons and reds. Keep the rest of your makeup light while focusing on a dramatic lip.
6. Lancôme Artliner 24h bold color precision eyeliner
Finally overcome your fear for a cat eye as these liners make it super easy to apply (it's like a pen!). Do a subtle cat eye for day and go bolder for night.
7. Make up forever HD invisible cover foundation
Try this foundation which has a little more coverage but leaves you with a natural look. Especially great for in front of the camera.
8. Fresh sugar lip polish
My lips get super dry this time of year so the best thing is to keep exfoliating.
9. First Aid beauty ultra lip therapy
Keep a lip treatment handy and apply after exfoliating, under lipsticks and at bedtime.
10. Caudalie Vinosource SOS morning eye rescue
Keep eyes fresh and awake with extra hydrating products.
11. Lush Buffy body butter
Scrub away dead skin cells with this natural body scrub bar. It leaves skin looking and feeling super smooth.
12. Nature's Bounty extra strength Vitamin D
Since we lack sunshine in the fall and winter it's important to get it elsewhere, which is as easy as taking a vitamin every morning.
13. Nuxe Crème fraîche de beauté
This formula is super hydrating and feels luxurious. Keeps face from feeling and looking dry and will give you that extra little glow.
14. Living Proof no frizz shampoo & conditioner
Fight static season by switching to a no frizz shampoo and conditioner.
15. Caudalie divine oil
This stuff is amazing and should be on your beauty shelf year round. Apply after a shower or bath for ultra soft skin that looks and smells incredible. Also use whatever is left on your hands and run through the ends of your hair to avoid frizz.
16. Josie Maran argan cleansing oil
If you get dry skin like moi this is a great formula to remove make up and cleanse face without stripping away any extra oils.
17. Tan Towel to go classic
Feeling pale? Just swipe these little towelettes all over and reveal a natural sun kissed glow. Keep them handy for those "escape winter vacations".
18. Bliss two-day detox
Detox from the "overeating" holidays also known as Thanksgiving, Halloween and Christmas.
19. Estée Lauder advance night repair
Apply this "miracle in a jar" every night before bed and you will surely notice a difference. Another trick? Apply a drop to your foundation for that "dewy" look.
