Winter beauty favourites

My favourite winter beauty products

It’s been almost a year since I last made my Winter Beauty favourites; it’s so interesting to see how your routine and most loved products change over time. Here are my holy grail items lined up for winter!

My favourite winter beauty products

 The wonderful Tanya Burr Face Illuminator is stunning in its rose gold packaging.You get so much product in one tube – it’s a giant amongst my other products! – and it gives a lovely natural glow to the face when mixed in with foundation. It blends really easily, is lovely to use for dull skin in winter or to take a break from heavy foundation. It is also lovely to be supporting another blogger at the same time!

My favourite winter beauty products

The sugarplum shades from the Bon Bon palette are so addictive and the shimmer shades are perfect to wear when you’re feeling all festive. The shade Satin Sheets also makes for a gorgeous highlight that is perfect for the season, with its little gold specks of shimmer. See my full review of the palette here!

My favourite winter beauty products

This Barry M Strobe Cream is the highlight I had been looking for! I love how it leaves a dewy, rather than shimmery, finish so is perfect for every day use. It gives pale skin the most ethereal, angelic glow.

My favourite winter beauty products

Lolita Lempicka is my favourite fragrance for winter. It’s sweet, floral and dreamy with a pinch of anise, so reminds me a little of liquorice! The bottle is so pretty too, I love the fairytale-esque apple design and gold adornments. I would love to collect the other perfumes in the range, they look and sound adorable! 

My favourite winter beauty products

I have been reaching for these gorgeous sugarplum shades so many times lately! I love using them as a cream blush as well as lip and all of the Melted products I have tried have incredible staying power! The formula can be a little drying if worn every day, especially in winter, so I like to alternate with lipbalm.

My favourite winter beauty products

Some things never change and winter is always made sweeter for me collecting the Babylips Holiday editions! They are the perfect winter lipbalms, so soothing, hydrating and perfect for chapped lips and I love all the pretty shades and quirky, delicious scents. My favourites are Blueberry or Pumpkin Spice!

Thank you so much for your darling words – wishing you a lovely weekend from us and little boy! ♡

    Such a pretty post, I was thinking of doing something along the same lines like Christmas/winter essentials. Your winter beauty favourites are adorable, those two illuminating products sound gorgeous, and Tanya’s done well with her collection. I really want to try the holiday baby lips range now, I hadn’t heard of it before! Sending winter wishes! πŸ™‚ xx

    Tanya's face illuminator seems perfect! And that packaging is gorgeous. I wish my skin wasn't oily, I refrain myself from trying out glowy products because of that. The Barry M highlighter sounds perfect, sometimes shimmery highlight can be too 'in your face' and going for dewy finishes is more natural. πŸ˜€

      Thank you so much Julia! You have the most beautiful complexion, I am so envious having dry, sensitive skin haha, I do love a dewy highlight; maybe a shimmery one for special occasions πŸ˜€ β™‘

    I keep meaning to see if I can get some of the Tanya Burr makeup shipped to the states. Everyone has such great things to say about it and it looks gorgeous! Plus I do love the idea of having a nice illuminating product to liven things up in the colder weather!
