Winter Wonders! Products We Swear by During the Cold Winter Months

Selections by Jessica of Fancy Face Inc.!

Even though winter and the holiday season can be full of warm and happy moments spent with friends and family, it is anything but warm outside with the harsh, drying effects of the wind and cold weather. Needless to say, your skin and beauty routine will require some extra love and care to help you look great and party-ready during these cold winter months.

Here we turn to one of our amazingly talented Fancy Face makeup artists, Jessica, who shares some of her favourite products to use this winter. 

KOPARI Coconut Lip Love – Hydrating and glossy, perfect for the winter. Not sticky at all and cruelty free. It also smells like the beach so who wouldn’t love it! 

            

Tarte Cleansing Cutie Scrubber – Picked this up about 2 months ago and I have been obsessed. It really takes your cleanser to the next level and actually feels like it’s getting all the dirt & build up out of your skin! 

                     
Ouai Haircare Dry Shampoo Foam – the ultimate dry shampoo. This will keep your hair clean and smelling fresh foreverrrr! 
                           
CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion (for normal to oily skin) – An amazing face cream that leaves skin feeling smooth and hydrated. Best part? DRUGSTORE item!! 


               
Too Faced Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette – I love every single colour in this palette. I’ve been using it nonstop since the Sephora sale and have nothing but good things to say! I’m also a sucker for things that smell amazing. 

          
Dose of Colors “Undressed” Lip Gloss – The best nude gloss. Pigmented enough that it is perfect to wear alone or on top of a lipstick. 


                 
Lancome Teint Idole Ultra Long Wear Foundation – My go to foundation for any time of year! Lightweight, full coverage, and longwearing. 


                
BECCA Aqua Luminous Perfecting Concealer – It’s that time of year when our skin transitions to being more on the drier side. For me it’s especially under my eyes and around my nose. This concealer is perfect as it’s so hydrating but still gives great coverage! 


        
Josie Maran Pure Argon Oil – If you haven’t yet tried this you are missing out! I put this on after cleansing my face and let it soak in. After a few minutes I’ll put my facial moisturizer over top. Since I have oily skin (but I get dry patches in some areas), I only do this at night for extra hydration in the winter! Can be used on skin, hair & nails! 
              
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Cruella” – Of course, I had to finish off with a red lip for the holidays. Loving this one especially because it doesn’t dry my lips out and it lasts! 

Decleor Paris Aromessence Neroli Amara Oil Serum – This serum is very effective against the cold weather and is meant to be applied before your moisturizer. Its ingredients include Neroli essential oil, parsley, hazelnut and sweet orange essential oils. Try it to give your skin a hit of hydration and radiance boost, while the calming scent of the oils soothes your senses.

Bobbi Brown Extra Repair Moisture Cream – an essential part of any skincare routine is the moisturizer. Bobbi Brown has been a global top-seller for a long time, and this cream is a lightweight version of their iconic Extra Repair Moisturizing Balm that is especially suitable for normal to dry skin, particularly those with dry skin patches. It’s perfect for layering and prepping skin for foundation and makeup, and is absorbed almost instantly with minimal waiting time.

Top 5 Lip Colours for Spring 2017

Spring is almost in full bloom! When you do your annual Spring cleaning, why not include your makeup and beauty products as well? Now is the perfect time to do a full revamp of your makeup bag. After a long and dreary winter, the new season ushers in some bright and bold colours. Here are our top 5 favourite lip shades for Spring 2017, with inspiration taken from this season’s fashion shows and our favourite celebrities. 

Matte lipsticks seem to be all the rage this season. This crimson red, “Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour” from MAC has an instant skin-brightening effect. Pair it with fresh, dewy skin and natural eye makeup.

Coral and electric orange lip colours have made a comeback in recent years, reminiscent of the groovy 70s. We love the Semi Matte Lipstick from NARS in the shade “Breaking Free”. This shade pairs perfectly with bronzed skin and dramatic lashes. 

If you are after a more subtle, natural shade, but don’t want to go completely nude…Stila’s Color Balm Lipstick in the shade “Jessie” would be the perfect choice. It’s not quite nude and not quite pink; more so a chestnut rose. 

Floral hues are a must for Spring. For a fun pop of pink, we recommend NARS’ Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in “Damned”. One swipe will make you feel instantly sexier. 

Transitioning from winter to spring this year means embracing sparkle. While glittery, metallic lips might not be appropriate for every day wear, it can be the perfect choice for an evening out if you want a bold and dramatic look. Lancome’s Le Metallique Lip Lacquers come in a wide range of beautiful shades.
