Beauty: Favorite winter beauty products and my routine


Happy Sunday loves!

Today I want to share my favorite beauty products for winter with you all.
Skincare is so important to me, especially in winter! My skin can be a mess if I use products that are to rich for my skin and it can get dry if I do not hydrate well enough. I think I’m probably not the only one with this problem and that’s why I am sharing this today.

Besides skincare products I also decided to share some of my favorite make-up products. The items above are some of the beauty products that I use daily or a lot. Of course I have way more favorites but it would become a very long list to share!

Check out a little bit of extra information and where to buy after the read more button! Maybe you can make someone very happy with one of these products as a Christmas or late-Sinterklaas gift! 🙂

Every morning I start with a splash of water and start doing my make-up. I normally don’t have the patience and the time to really cleanse my face really good in the morning. If I do I use the Philosophy Purity cleanser.

Philosophy purity cleanser is my cleanser of choice ever since I started using it! It does its work perfectly and really gives my skin what it needs. It doesn’t dry my skin out and it also works really well with a cleansing device like the Clarisonic! I’m actually planning on getting the Clarisonic Aria today as there is a discount action today at ICI Paris XL!

Update: I just got the Clarisonic!! 🙂

I always use a moisturiser or a day cream. I sometimes use the moisturiser from Clinique in combination with a day cream but at the moment I am hooked on the Origins GinZing moisturiser. It’s actually all that I need at this time.

Origins GinZing moisturiser. I started trying out this moisturiser about a month ago and so far I am really happy with this product. It’s pretty light and airy and the structure is gel-like which is perfect. I never like heavy cremes as they are too rich and make my skin too greasy.

My favorite lip balm is the Labello Hydro care, a very moisturising lip balm perfect for winter. I really need it during the colder months! When I want to look extra glamorous I use my Glamglow lip plumber, it’s a lipgloss with a cinnamon extract in it. Your lips start tingling a little bit – not in an annoying way – and it makes your lips plumb up a bit. Love how it looks! My current favourite lipstick is the Urban Decay ‘backtalk’ vice lipstick. The color is perfect and the finish is amazing as well! A pinkish nude matte lipstick which is perfect for every occasion!

When I want my make-up to be perfect I use the Smashbox Photo Finnish foundation primer. It’s a silicon based primer which makes your skin flawless and makes sure that your make-up stays in place all day. Much needed when you need to have your make-up on point for more than a couple of hours! I don’t think I can do without this product anymore!

In the winter I need a pretty light foundation, duh, the Dior nude skin foundation in color  010 Ivory is the best one for my winter teint. It matches perfectly and it looks like I am not wearing foundation at all! I always apply my foundation with my beauty blender 🙂

For a little bit of color on my cheeks I use the Chanel blush in color 64, pink explosion. A lovely color which you can build up very well. WAIT! We can’t leave the door anymore without our brows on fleek! I get my brows in shape with the Anastasia Beverly Hills dip brow pomade in the color taupe. Now we are almost ready! I am a huge perfume lover and  my absolute favorite is Yves Saint Laurent manifesto l’exilir. I honestly think I will buy this one for eternity! And now we are ready for the day.

Before going to bed I always cleanse my face more thoroughly. I use my cleanser and a tonic. Can’t wait to start using the Clarisonic Aria for my evening cleansing routine!
What is your beauty routine?

      I try to do my best but my skin is a little bit of mess right now. I actually just bought a Clarisonic device to keep my skin glowing during the winter times 🙂

    Great post. I am definitely going to buy me the Philosiphy cleanser. Unfortunately, I live in Miami so we don’t have winter but I can still put to use some of your tips.

    Ooooh how is the Clarisonic? I would quite like one of those as they look like they would really clean your skin. I do have a pretty basic beauty regime but I do have a really bad habit of sometimes going to bed with my make up on…..I know disgusting isn’t it?!

    hmmm that moisturizer looks great! I do love the Origins Gin-Zing eye cream so this sounds great! Great picks!

    I really want to get myself a Clarisonic but I can never seem to find it in discount and they’re just so expensive to me as a student ???

    These all look like great products! I have heard amazing things about the Dior foundation and you can’t go wrong with a clarisonic!

    I love my glamglow lipplumper as well!❤️
