Hey guy! So I’m currently in Dubai right now but wanted to give you a quick update on my winter beauty essentials. I know I’m long overdue for a beauty post, so hopefully this will answer some of the questions you’ve been asking beauty-wise. There’s nothing I love more than than plump, hydrated skin. After lots of partying over the holidays, I definitely had to turn to a few of my favorite products to get my skin back into good shape – or at least fake it a little, I’m sharing a rundown of everything I’ve been loving, using – and flew all the way to Dubai with me.
Fresh Crème Ancienne Supreme Face Serum – I am obsessed with this serum. The price may look insane but it’s worth investing in. It’s great for fighting signs of aging, dryness, and dullness. I feel like I get instant results and it always gives me that boost I’m looking for by the next morning.
Fresh Rose Hydrating Eye Gel Cream – I keep all of Fresh’s different eye creams on rotation because they actually absorb into the skin. As of late, I’ve been using the rose one because it’s cooling and helps depuff tired eyes (great for combatting the visible effects of being jet lagged).
Fresh Rose Hydrating Gel Cream – This face cream is an all-around great moisturizer for anyone who needs a kick of hydration. It’s full of hyaluronic acid and packed with antioxidants to help protect your skin from external factors like pollution. I find it so soothing and great for wearing under makeup.
Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – I have used Laura Mercier primers for years as they’re the best out there. When my skin looks more lackluster, I’ll use the Radiance Primer, but most days, the original one is just fine. It creates the perfect amount of slip for blending foundation in and makes it look flawless. I always have this on hand when I need my makeup to last all night.
Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation – My favorite foundations are those that don’t look like foundation at all. This Dior one is full coverage but feels weightless on the skin and looks natural. It covers up imperfections like a dream while smoothing out any textures! I wear shades 35 or 40 – and will even mix the two.
Diorshow Brow Styler – If you want your brows looking natural but full, look no further. The fine tip shape on this one is great for filling in sparse areas and the color is so on point. The best part about this brow pencil is that it doesn’t smudge or fade throughout the day.
Persona Identity Eyeshadow Palette – I have been using this Persona Cosmetics Eyeshadow palette non-stop – and not because Sona is one of my good friends, but because the color, texture, and quality are AMAZING. I love how the warm colors look on my skin and that they can be mixed and matched for the most stunning effect.
Givenchy Liquid Eyeliner – It’s not everyday that I wear eyeliner, but when I do, I like an extra extra fine tip that’s intensely black. The one from Givenchy is a must-have for me because it goes on opaque with just one swipe. The brush tip makes it so easy to create thin or thick lines for a personalized makeup look.
Lancome Monsieur Big Mascara – Whenever I need just one thing to make my eyes pop, mascara gets the job done. This is one of the best volumizing mascaras out there, and it really creates that false lash effect everyone craves. Perfect for dramatic makeup – or whenever you’re going out.
Lancome Star Bronzing Powder – I prefer bronzers that aren’t so gray and neutral looking since my skin is more tan. This one has the perfect amount of red in it and makes my skin look sun kissed all year round. I’m also a fan of the formula as it’s so blendable and easy to work with.
Tom Ford Cheek Duo – Tom Ford’s beauty products may be expensive but they are so worth it. This cheek duo will make your skin GLOW like nothing else on the market. The formula is hard pressed so you don’t deal with fall outs, and I love that it’s sheer but also super buildable.
Persona Matte Liquid Lipstick – I’m def more of a matte lip kinda girl as you probably already guessed, and this is one of my go-to products. It takes only a quick minute for this lippie to dry down then stays put no matter how much drinking and eating follows.
I’m always game to try new products, so drop your favorites in the comments!
