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.

Bridal Hair Jewellery

The perfect dress and makeup are undoubtedly two things at the top of every bride’s wishlist, but a bride’s look is not complete until she finds the perfect hairstyle…plus the all-important shiny pieces to bring the whole look together.

Here we talk about the essential pieces of bridal hair jewellery.

The Veil

Yes, it’s not technically jewellery, but how can we discuss bridal hair and fashion without mentioning the most iconic piece that a bride wears on her wedding day. I know some people may choose to forgo a veil nowadays, but your wedding day is basically the only time you can wear a veil without looking weird. So go ahead and wear one if you want!

This stunning Amanie Pearl Veil from Blair Nadeau should be all the reason you need to wear a veil, and it is simply too breathtaking to not mention on this blog! The jewels in this veil come courtesy of the hundreds of Preciosa pearls, which are hand applied on this single tier non gathered mantilla style French tulle veil.

The Hair Comb

When wearing a veil, it’s a good idea to keep your hairstyle and accessories somewhat simple to keep your look from becoming too cluttered.  Either of these jeweled stunners from Kleinfeld would be a perfect complement to wear under a veil. They manage to add some sparkle without stealing the show away from the veil.

Filigree Luna Comb

Nevoux Comb

The hair comb can also be worn alone without a veil and pairs especially well with a side-swept hair style.

The Crown or Tiara

Even though your veil may be too beautiful to take off, you might want to for the reception just so you have an excuse to wear another piece of jewellery. If you do plan on taking it off, make sure you have someone (preferably one of our stylists) on hand to help you remove the veil correctly and re-position your hair style and hair accessories if necessary. Your hairstyle might get ruined if the veil isn’t taken off carefully and correctly.

Why not replace the veil with something even more dramatic like this Adeline Gold Starburst Crown? Adhering to the 2017 collection’s celestial theme perfectly, this crown contains a variety of differently-sized starbursts that are hand painted and finished with a shimmery iridescent coating, and of course a few Swarovski pearls and crystals.

Or perhaps you are a Games of Thrones fan? This medieval-inspired crown made of golden brass stamped filigree medallions will have you feeling like the Queen on the Iron Throne at your wedding, but we all know how infamous weddings are in Westeros…

Eve Gold Bridal Crown 

The Headband

Wearing a bejeweled headband certainly makes for a bold and unique fashion statement. Similar to the crown or tiara discussed above, headbands, or diadems as they were called in ancient Greece, also signified royalty in some ancient cultures. Feel like a princess in one of these delicate creations by Elsa Corsi.

The Sarah Halo headband features three round clusters of Swarovski Crystal with Vintage Rose cushion cut center stones that are meant to rest on your forehead, as well as a double layer of crystals that swags at the back, making it as beautiful from the front as it is from the back.

The Tina headband features a striking lattice design of marquise flowers in the front, which can be worn directly on the forehead or higher up on the crown.  Powerful and feminine at the same time, we’d like to imagine that this stunning piece is what Wonder Woman would wear on her wedding day.

The Look from Behind

You want to ensure that your guests will have something to dazzle them during your long walk down the aisle, and for part of the ceremony as well. This understated string of Swarovski Crystals from Elsa Corsi gives you the circlet look from behind without committing to the whole crown. It’s the perfect look for brides who opt to wear their hair down.

Jeweled Hair Swag 

The Flower Girl

Don’t let the cute flower girls be the only ones who get flowers. Flowers tucked behind the ears instantly evoke feelings of carefree days in the sun. Bring a bit of the beach into your wedding day by adorning your hair with silk flowers, which are just as beautiful as and more enduring than the real thing.

This Flora Silk Flower Hair Comb is made from the Peau de Soie silk, the ‘queen of all silk’. Each of the three beautifully crafted blooms are hand pressed using traditional millinery irons, and in the center of each lies a beautiful hand wired Swarovski crystal and pearl stamens. The perfect complement for a side-swept do.

Remember, if you can’t choose just one piece to wear, then change it up! Wear one during the ceremony and reserve the more dramatic piece for the reception, when it’s time to let your hair down and party.
