The most wonderful time of the year… and of course it’s December, when everybody starts caring more about other people, shares love and kindness. Even though it’s only because of Christmas spirit, I still love it.
Want to share with you my favorites for this time of the year. Luminous face, dark red lips, bright eyes and soft hands- it’s all what I love for winter.
Let’s start with the face.
For my foundation, I’m using Maybelline Fit Me Luminous + Smooth foundation in colour 220. Very pigmented for medium to full coverage. I love how natural it looks on my face and it’s not a matte finish. Definitely face has more luminosity and is perfect for day and night. To brighten up I’m using True Match Concealer from Loreal in colour 4.N Beige. Very easy to apply, brightens up my under eyes area and also covers all the imperfections. More about it you can read Here as I wrote a full review about it. To finish up and settle the foundation and concealer, I add a little bit of Loreal True Match Minerals Skin-Improving Foundation in colour 4.D/4.W Golden Natural. You can use it alone if you want to have a super natural look for every day, or use it as a powder to set up your makeup as I do. It keeps the shine on your face and so you won’t get a matte finish (what I love !), but fix the foundation very well. Same as for concealer, you can read more about it Here and also check the matte finish powder.
For my eyes
My all time favorite Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume-Plumping Lash Primer, it’s my 4th or 5th already and I guess I will never exchange it to something else. It not only makes the lashes ready for applying mascara, but gives a lot of volume and curl. But due to the Pure White TM Complex after 8 weeks of using it, your natural lashes has more volume and curl itself. I feel like doesn’t matter what mascara I apply after this primer it simply looks fascinating! So following for mascara, currently my favorite is False Lashes Concentrate Curling Top Coat Mascara from KIKO. You can use it alone as a mascara, or you can use it as a top coat on any other mascara. (so many times was said mascara! :D) It has a curled brush, which makes application even more easier. So every time I use these 2 heroes, my lashes looks long, curled, with lots of volume but still natural.
And my two favorite shades for the lips this month is
Super Stay Matte Ink from Maybelline. You can read more about it Here
A classic red in a shade 20 Pioneer and a darker one, more like a bordo in a shade 50 Voyager. These two colours are simply perfect for winter time.
TIP: after applying it, don’t touch your lips until is fully dry, otherwise you will have empty spots on your lips with no colour left. So give a few minutes to dry it out fully.
I use them almost every single day to work or going out and now couldn’t imagine myself not having them in my bag.
Last but not lest in my new favorite hand cream
My mum bought it for me the minute it was released as I am crazy about passion fruits and of course it’s in a pink colour and it’s from IKONA. I’m quite sure that you can get it only in Lithuania, but if you have a chance, definitely get it. The same as my lipsticks, this one is not leaving my bag! It makes my hands so smooth and moisturized that I can’t stop using it. It has olive and almond oil, goji berry extract and glycerin. Actually would be a perfect Christmas present!
And that’s it, all my favorites for this time. Hope you enjoyed reading it and will find it helpful for your next trip for makeup shopping!
