Winter skin must haves


Winter is here, and if you’re at all like me, you’re skin is super dry and unruly. Here are the products I’ve been using to attempt to combat the cold dry air this time of year. I use the Beautycounter facial oil in the morning under my makeup, and apply the Kiehl’s oil at night. I’ve also started exfoliating my lips (about once a week) with a homemade sugar scrub. I just mix equal parts brown sugar and honey and gently rub it on my lips for a few seconds. Wipe off with a damp washcloth and finish off with a good lip balm. I love this Bite Beauty one! Happy New Year, friends! Stay warm out there and don’t forget to moisturize!

Bite Beauty agave lip balm

*side note: I’ve been using the beautycounter facial oil for over 6 months, and I’ve noticed it has helped my fine lines fade away quite a bit! I highly recommend giving it a try it you’re wanting to keep wrinkles at bay!!


The perfect foundation


I just started using this foundation stick by Lancome.  I was skeptical of a stick because I usually use liquid foundation, but this formula is so creamy, and it really blends in like a dream.  You can start off with a little, and then build on it if you are wanting more coverage in certain areas.  I am seriously a total convert.  This stick is truly amazing!!  (Side note:  I put on a facial oil before using it, which helps it to go on even smoother and keeps my skin looking dewy!)
