The weather outside may be cooling down, but these beauty products are hot hot hot! Between new brand and product launches and old classics that are always reliable, there are so many great beauty items to test out and rock this winter.
These are the items you need to add to your beauty cabinet, stat!
Fashion designer Jill Stuart recently launched her beauty line in the US, and if you're a fan of her feminine clothing designs, you'll no doubt obsess over her makeup products too! Take the Lip Blossom Velvet lipstick, for example: this creamy formula adds sheer, buildable color all while hydrating your lips—perfect for winter!
Also, the packaging is just as good as the product. The tube is adorned with a Swarovski crystal and the cap features a tiny mirror for those on-the-go touch-ups.
Removing makeup properly is the first step in any good skincare routine. An oil-based cleanser like DHC's Deep Cleansing Oil is just the thing! It helps to remove oil-based makeup products (like attracts like, after all), as well as dirt and oil that naturally builds up throughout the day.
Apply this cleanser to your dry face using dry hands for it to work its magic. Then rinse the cleansing oil away with water and follow up with a water-based cleanser for a squeaky clean face.
The original Urban Decay Naked palette may be gone, but you'll stop mourning once you get your hands on their newest Naked palette, Naked Cherry. Featuring 12 pink- and red-based neutral eyeshadow hues, you'll be using this palette to create all your holiday eye looks.
Use the lighter shades for a rosy everyday look, or go for the darker shades for a cherry-colored smoky eye.
Neutrogena's popular makeup remover cleansing wipes have long been a best seller, and now they come in convenient single packets for on-the-go use! We recommend stashing a few of these portable singles in your purse for when you need that random touch up. They're great for wiping away sweat after a workout class and removing makeup on the fly.
The singles are also great for quick vacations when you don't want to lug around a huge pack of makeup remover towelettes. Just pop however many you need for your trip into your makeup bag and go!
Dear Dahlia's dual palette is another great space-saving product. This compact features 2 powder eyeshadows, a multi-use balm, and a mirror—essentially you can create your whole makeup look with just this mini palette!
Use the eyeshadow duo for a neutral eye, and apply the balm to lips and cheeks for sheer color definition.
Dry weather can be so harsh on skin, and winter is the most dry time of year. Restore some much-needed hydration to your skin with bioClarity's Hydrating Masque. With hydrating ingredients like chamomile, coconut, and citrus, your skin will feel totally restored.
Apply the mask to your freshly washed face and leave on for 20 to 30 minutes, then peel or rinse off. Trust us: your skin will thank you!
Between Harry and Meghan's royal wedding earlier this year, and of course the obsession over Netflix's A Christmas Prince, people can't get enough of all things royal. Look the part of a princess with BH Cosmetics' new line of royally good lipsticks. From an understated nude to a rich red, these lipsticks are velvety smooth and will stay put.
Bonus points: the lipsticks come in a super fun pink sequin pouch that you can use to easily transport them or other beauty products with you!
During the dry winter months, don't leave home without applying a moisturizing lotion first! Aveeno's lotion is a classic that can restore even the driest of skin.
Because Aveeno's lotion is fragrance-free, it's perfect for everyday use and won't irritate skin, and unlike some lotions, this formula is soft and smooth rather than greasy. You'll use it all winter long.
