Update your makeup bag for winter

Posted on November 04, 2011 by terresa | 0 Comments

The sudden drop in temperature here leaves no doubt, winter truly is just around the corner!  And as the weather changes and the last traces of any tan you had fades into oblivion, you may want to consider updating the contents of your makeup bag for the season.

Comfort is key when the weather gets colder, so it is always a good idea to have a moisturizer that you can apply to hands, elbows or even your face when you really need some moisture.  Coconut oil is a great choice, you can easily transfer some from a larger container into a small jar, and because it is solid at room temperature, you don't need to worry about leaks or spills.

To add a little color back to your face, carry a bronzer that is slightly darker than your natural skintone and a blush with a rosier tone.  Satin Matte Blush in Antique Rose, Honey Rose and Desert Rose are great options, as are Bronzers like Maricaibo, Mauna Loa and Trinidad.

When the skies are dull, add a bit more brightness to your look with a Luminous Shimmer Eyeshadow with not-so-subtle sparkle.  Buttercream, Venus, Paris or Leone are easy to sweep all over the eye area and look great with or without a contour color.

Finally, switch from a drying lipstick to our moisturizing Organic Nourishing Lip Balm.  Cranberry gives lipstick-like coverage, but provides anti-oxidants and moisture at the same time.
