Swatch Fest: Winter Lipsticks

Hello lovelies,

Its that time of year where we all wear bolder, berry toned winter lippies. Here’s a few of my faves that I wanted to share with you all.

MAC Lipstick- Ruby Woo

A classic red that I’ve been obsessed with. My tip is to apply the lip liner first as it makes the application so much easier and the finish looks a lot better. Please note, I did not use the lip liner below and totally regret it. The only down fall with this lipstick is, it has a matte finish so its a bit drying for winter.

Beauty Blender

Applying my foundation with a Beauty Blender is a must! Its vary rare that I use a brush to apply my foundation, however some foundations do work better when applied with a brush. For me the Beauty Blender is easy and creates the most flawless base ever! Click here for a comparison to the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.

MAC Eye Kohl- Teddy

I’ve been so time poor in the morning that I haven’t had time to wear eyeshadow on a daily basis. My go to when I’m running late is to apply some Teddy eyeliner to my top lash liner and waterline for some added definition.

Hylamide Photography Foundation*

This is a goldy toned liquid highlighter, but can be used mixed in with foundation or primer. Personally, I like it as a liquid highlighter as a base to my powder highlighter.
