On Rotation: Hello Winter5.1.15
Looks like I'm spending yet another winter freezing my arse off in the nation's capital. This calls for some seriously winter-friendly products.
I can no longer just sweep powder foundation all over my face as a base. Fortunately the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation is balancing enough to keep my combination skin feeling comfortable and looking shine free throughout the day. To inject some life back into my complexion, I'm switching between NARS Sin and Tarte Natural Beauty. NARS Sin is a deeper berry shade with golden shimmers running through it, making it a perfect option for vampy lip looks. Tarte Natural Beauty gives that I've-just-been-running-through-snow look that goes with just about everything, particularly a red lip.
I'm forcing myself to experiment with the NARS The NARSissist Eyeshadow Palette just to try something new. I get a little comfortable using the same few eyeshadow palettes and products so it's time to break out of the comfort zone and see what looks I can create with a palette of fifteen different shadows. I shall report back with some of the looks I end up creating.
Dark lips, yes please. For everyday use I'll be sticking with something more wearable like MAC Plumful but this is definitely the time of year for bold lip options too. At the moment I'm switching between the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils in Train Bleu and Dragon Girl. For a bold that isn't matte though, MAC Rebel is definitely the way to go.
What products will you be reaching for most over the next month or so?
