My make up tends to stay the same throughout the year. I know what I like and I stick to that. However the one thing that does change are my lips, whether it’s from a classic nude to a dark berry, its something I love to swap out depending on the season or the mood I am in.
I love the classic natural make up look with a solid wing liner and a good lip colour. This post is to bring you up to date on what products I have been using lately and to show off the most gorgeous berry colour that I have been loving over the colder months.
Before we get into the application of make up and what I have been using, I need to talk about the base. For me a good skin routine will make every make up glow and look flawless. You do not need a full on 10 step routine to do AM and PM but a good basic routine will work wonders (if you do want a full on 10 steps routine that is also amazing).
Once I have cleansed and toned (I will do a full Winter routine very soon) I have been moistursing with the Elemis Hydra-Boost Day Cream, this product does what it says on the tin. Its a gorgeous product that helps to hydrate the skin so your make up sits lovely on the skin.
After this I do use a primer this again is from Elemis. Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm, this is a perfect 3 in 1, you can use it as a stand alone mositurser, primer for make up or an illuminating balm if you’re not wearing anything on the face.
I love this product as a primer, as it has the added radiance its brillaint under foundation for that glow!!
Now my skin is all hydrated and radiant, I will go in with my everyday makeup. Its super quick and easy. I can do this in about 10 minutes so perfect for before work. I do tend to stick to the same sort of finish throughout the year. I will just swap in diferent foundation and products as the year goes by.

The lipstick I have been obsessing over the last few months is the Bare Minerals Lipstick in Colour Queen. The reason why I love this colour is that it is so buildable and has staying power! I need more Bare Minerals lipstick in my collection.
