Winter Makeup

With Winter in full swing (although we really have not gotten much snow) I thought I’d share the makeup that I wear on a daily basis during the winter. As a teacher, I have to get up pretty early in the morning and get out the door on time. That being said, I will snooze my alarm clock until the very last minute (don’t we all) and I am usually in a rush when it comes to applying makeup. Since this is a problem every single day, I end up wearing the same makeup look every day. It’s very simple and I can do it in about 10 minutes!

The first thing I apply is this Argan oil from Physician’s Formula. It has a little glitter in it and I love the way it moisturizes my face before I apply the rest of my makeup. I will also prime my face with the Makeup For Ever smoothing primer. I have used this for a long time and I have found its the best primer for blurring the pores around my nose.

For foundation I have been loving the e.l.f. oil free spf 15 foundation in porcelain. I use foundation every day, but of course you can always skip this part. This foundation has a pump and a medium coverage. For me, its perfect for every day! I also use the e.l.f. concealer in fair. I like this concealer, but it comes in such a tiny bottle!


To set both my under eye area and my whole face I use the RCMA no color powder. This is still my all-time favorite powder!


Next, I fill in my eyebrows. To me, this should be the easiest quickest step so I use the Anastasia dipbrow pomade in taupe to quickly fill in my eyebrows. Not going to lie, I’m pretty sloppy about filling them in so most days my eyebrows are definitely sisters and not twins!

To finish up my face, I bronze up with Benefit’s hoola bronzer. With my skin being so pale, this color works nicely if I just apply a very light amount. I put on Wet n’ Wild’s blush in mellow wine and I dust their blush in rose champagne over my cheekbones for a subtle highlight. I love Wet n’ Wild’s blushes – so many colors and so affordable!


For mascara (an everyday must for me) I coat my lashes in Benefit Roller Lash. This is the best mascara of ALL TIME! Seriously, favorite mascara ever. Plus, right now I’m using a mini bottle and it’s just too cute.


Last but not least, I apply NYX Liquid Suede cream lipstick in Soft Spoken. This is the perfect lip for every day. It’s not too nude but it’s not too bold for everyday wear. It applies so nicely and lasts a really long time!

And that’s it for my everyday makeup essentials! This might seem like a lot of products to some, but this is really what I use everyday, and I can do it quickly. I hope you enjoyed this post and maybe found some new products that will become your new essentials!
