Winter Make-up Bag Staples

I do tend to switch up my makeup quite regularly, specially when the seasons change. Lately I have been wearing the same look daily. I really love natural looking skin, golden eye and a trusty winged liner. These are the products I use:

makeup staples


  • Dior Diorskin Forever Foundation: I have been obsessed with this for months. I really love its medium coverage and natural finish. If you want to know more about this foundation she my review here.

  • Bobbi Brown corrector in light to medium bisque: This is a great corrector to counter act dark circles. But you do have to be careful and use it sparingly as it can cake-up. I recommend to use a good moisturizing eye cream with it, and if you have very dry skin I wouldn’t recommend it for you.

  • Maybelline The Eraser Eye Concealer: This is a great drugstore concealer, I layer it up on top of the Bobbi Brown corrector and blend. I really like how it helps to brighten the under eye area.

  • Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer: Another great drugstore concealer. This one is a bit more brightening. I only use it when by dark circles are quite bad. I layer it up on top of the Maybelline concealer in a V shape and blend it using a beauty blender.

  • Hourglass Ambient lighting palette in Surreal Light: I won´t go on about this too much as it’s the only thing I have been talking about for months. I have been using this palette daily, specially the blush in Surreal Glow and the highlighter in Surreal strobe light. I also sometimes use the Bronzer in Surreal Bronze light. It definitely helps beat the winter dull face some of us tend to have around this time of year. Check out my review here.

  • Sun Beam Benefit: I also like adding an extra subtle bronzy glow to lighten up my complexion. I really like this highlighter, it works just as good in summer and in winter.


  • Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palette: I love neutral eye palettes and I do have quite a lot in my collection. I have been using the Chocolate Bar palette quite a lot recently because of its rich warm tone browns. It also has love golden shades, excellent for this time of year.

  • Rimmel Glam´Eyes Liquid Liner: I have been using this liner for years. I love it for its fine and flexible nib. It doesn’t have a felt-tip, the applicator is made out of thin hairs, very similar to the ones you can find in a nail polish or on an eye brush. The hairs are perfectly shaped into a fine point helping with a precise application.

  • Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir Mascara: This is a very black and volumising mascara, it also gives nice separation and length. This is the only one I have been using since I tried it a few months back. You do have to be a bit careful, to many coats can give you clumpy lashes. In my opinion two coats are enough to give you nice long and volumised lashes.

  • Benefit Gimme Brow Brow Gel: Benefit has really upped their brow game with the re-vamping of their brow range. This little brow gel is perfect when you don’t really have too much time to spend on your brows. It does a good job a filling in the gaps and making your brows stay in place. Review here.

  1. The lighting palette looks incredible, as well as the too faced one. Those golden shades are so perfect for this season.

  2. I also use the Too Faced Primer Potion and love it. The highlighting palette looks amazing and like something I want to try. :) The Maybelline Age Rewind concealer is awesome too. I don't have dark circles but I do have some acne and scarring so I like to use it for that. I followed you and would love if you followed me back when you get a chance. :)

  15. I've been meaning to try the bobbi brown corrector for ages but I use my benefit erase paste religiously and I think they might be quite similar.

    1. I haven't used the erase paste but they do look quite similar. The Bobbi Brown corrector has a wider shade range, so it´s a good one to choose if you struggle finding your perfect shade.

  16. What a great selection!
    thank you for that!

  18. Wow that Hourglass Palette looks absolutely fabulous and it is so nice to change up your daily makeup with the seasons. I tend to do the same kind of smokey brown eye no matter what time of year, but I do tend to change up my lip colors depending on the season.

    1. Yeah, I think its easier to change your lip colour than the rest of your makeup. But once in a while its nice to try out new things.
