Makeup & Beauty Stuff I am loving this Winters

There are some makeup and beauty items that I am reaching for a lot this winters. I have tried to list a lot of things but these are not all. Like my fab India Rose water is not in the list or my Kama cleanser that I use everyday has not been featured. It’s just a little fun post I felt like doing, so did it with whatever things came in handy. Nothing too serious about it. πŸ˜‰

Here you go!

Eyeshadows : I am loving blues, purples and taupes this winters. Infact I find myself doing a plum eye makeup look every second day.he hee


Lipglosses and lip balms : Especially the Chanel and Estee Lauder lip glosses are so moisturising that even I have not put a lip balm underneath, they keep my lips soft and nourished. Lipsticks have taken a little back seat. I don’t believe I am saying this. πŸ˜›

Cream foundation and cream blushes : I love dewy look in winters so powder foundationΒ  and powder blushes have taken a major back seat. It’s all about that dewy glowy makeup for me and i find cream blushes give the most natural glow. If you have oily skin or large pores , try MAC beauty powder. you’d love the satiny look it give son your cheeks. πŸ™‚

Lip Scrubs and heavy creamy lotions. I am loving the lakme fruit moisture range , Almond lotion by Aroma magic and Lush Lip scrub. :-*

Face + lips

Khadi scrubs for exfoliating my body, getting rid of dead skin cells and keeping my skin clean. Loving my Maybelline eye and lip makeup remover. It doesn’t leave my skin dry and pretty decent for the price I have paid. πŸ™‚


L’occitane Dry Hand cream . This is the best hand cream I have ever tried. :worship: Thanks Aarthi. :-*

Body Shop Sweet lemon body butter + Winters + Dry Skin = :inlove: :inlove::inlove::inlove:

Hands and Body

MAC Fix+ Spray I have to have this with me all through winters. I spray this after doing my full makeup and it instantly gives dewy look to my face.

Make your own fix + by adding 3 portions rose water and 1 portion glycerin. Transfer it in a spray bottle and store it in fridge. It would stay good for a week or so.

Nail paints – Mostly matte, dark or very shimmery.

and no matter which shampoo I use I have to come back to my Fab India protein Conditioner. It take care of everything my hair ask for.

      those estee lauder glosses are ridiculously moisturising. they are showing their true worth in winters now when my lips are always in crappy condition :pain: :pain: :pain:

    1. Oh…even I like using nonmatte stuff in winters because then my oil-prone skin is well behaved and I can actually try creamier stuff. I keep matte for summer…

    2. huh?? matte foundations are supposed to be “in” during winters? I mean the skin gets dull as it is no..I love the moist dewy effect in winters, especially. πŸ™‚

      Thank you. πŸ™‚

  4. :smug: :smug: :smug: I would still brag somehow…you wait and seeeee…I will use their face ka cream as hand ka cream and hand ka cream as a hair conditioner or something :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: :smug: Me want LOCCCCCITANE in Bangalore…hope its somewhere I can go to and not some far off corner where my hubby would never take me 😐
