Winter Beauty Update

Winter Beauty Update

Introducing red
I am not a big fan of red as I don’t think it suits my skin tone but every winter nearing Christmas time I try to make it work. Wearing red on my nails is a Christmas must have, I currently have Essie´s Maki Me Happy paired with a glittery top coat.
As for red lipstick, its not that easy for me to find a good shade, I was really impressed with this red liquid lip colour by Trish McEvoy as it is a really good shade for me and incredible comfortable to wear.

Doubling up on hydration
The contrast between the cold streets and the warm heaters can really make your skin suffer. I don’t normally use hand creams but find it’s a must in winter. This indulgent Bal DÁfrique hand cream from Byredo is absolutely amazing and the scent is out of this world.

Returning the glow to your skin
Skin can become quite dull in winter. To get that summer glow I use a combination of face oils and illuminating primers. My favourite one by far is the Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow it just gives a subtle glow all over.

Staple lipstick
Every season I find a staple lip colour that I wear non-stop. This time I have fallen in love with the Audatious lipstick in Anita by Nars. This shade has always been a favourite in my collection but they have launched it in the limited edition gold packaging, it looks stunning!

Hope you have a wonderful holiday season; I’ll be back next Thursday.

Big hugs and kisses!

  5. Hi Vanessa,
    OMG, I love the limited edition NARS Audacious lipstick in the shade Anita too! :)
    I was lucky enough to receive it for Christmas and I've been wearing it ever since.
    I agree, the packaging is #onpoint - made for Instagram! :)
