Softly softly


For me, winter make up is simple, soft, and about looking after your skin.  I wanted to show you a few of my essentials for this time of year.  I very much have two skincare seasons, may to september is light and fresh and october to april is rich yet delicate.  I cant get enough of Japanese brand DHC and their Q10 foundation is natural and lightweight, but still with enough coverage to take care of those winter blemishes.  I use NO 02 and keep my skin pale in winter.  

recent favourite is & Other Stories eye colour palette in 'Plush Earth' which is the most beautiful collection of nudes, bronzes and burnt reds.  It goes on smoothly and blends well.  £12 for the palette means it is well worth a go.

Another great winter product and a sort of vaseline upgrade is M&S pure baby wonder balm which i use as a lip balm and on any dry areas of skin.  Its also great to brush through eyebrows to get the cara-factor.  So many uses and at just £6.  Enjoy xx
