FOTD: A Natural Winter Look Featuring Cream Products

Monday, January 20, 2014

During the cold and dry winter days, I prefer to reach for my hydrating cream products. For today's post, I'm sharing a recent (natural) Face of the Day featuring items I recommend for those blustery winter days. 

On this day, I first prepped my skin for makeup by applying the Avocado and Mango Hydrating Facial Mask* from Michael Todd True Organics, which smells so good and leaves my skin feeling refreshed. I usually leave this on for about 10 minutes then rinse.

I then moved on to the makeup!

Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation* 'Fair' + Rimmel Match Perfection Highlighter and Concealer 'Fair' + MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Natural Powder* 'Light'

**The Tarte Maracuja Miracle Foundation may be getting discontinued, as it's been on clearance on multiple sites for months, but I'm not 100% sure. It's great for dry skin, so try it if you can!

Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Crème Bronzer 'Warm Tan' + Revlon Photoready Cream Blush* 'Pinched'

Revlon Illuminance Crème Eyeshadow 'Not Just Nudes' + Bobbi Brown Smokey Eye Mascara (sample size) + e.l.f. Studio Eyebrow Kit* 'Ash'

NYX Slim Lip Pencil* 'Nude Pink ' + Korres Cherry Lipgloss* 'Natural Rose'

This look is super natural and easy! What are your go-to winter makeup favorites?

  1. Your skin looks so flawless in this picture! Love the makeup! :)

  2. I think tarte's discontinuing that foundation! I really wanted it because it sounded like a perfect foundation for my dry skin! However, they just sold out of my shade :(

    Anyway, great post! You look gorgeous :)

    1. Thank you! I know I had a feeling too, I actually picked mine up over 6 months ago and it was on clearance then. I'll add a note on the post. Thanks again!
