Now that it's getting nippier outside, I thought I would share with you all my Winter Beauty Essentials although it technically won't be winter for about another month.
Victoria's Secret Pink Warm & Cozy Supersoft Body Lotion: In the winter my body craves moisture! After I get out of the shower, I love to lather my legs & arms with a creamy moisturizer. I love this scent of Victoria's Secret Pink Body Lotion in the winter because it smells exactly how it's called: warm and cozy. And who doesn't want to smell warm and cozy when it's windy and freezing outside?
L'oreal Infallible Lipstick in Bold Bordeaux: Around this time of year is when it feels right to wear darker lips again. This lip color is the perfect shade, not too light but not too dark. The best part is that it is super buildable--you could definitely go a lighter berry shade for day, and add another layer for a more plum shade at night.
Aquaphor: Aquaphor is definitely at the top of my Winter Beauty Essentials list. While some people swear by Vaseline, I've got to say it just doesn't do it for me. I feel like my lips suck it right in and they never feel properly moisturized for more than twenty minutes. I'm also not really a fan of the way it is packaged in little tubs. Instead of dipping my fingers in a tub of Vaseline all the time, I much prefer a nice and neat tube of Aquaphor. Aquaphor seriously works wonders! A little bit goes a long way, so a tube of this will last you forever. I love to pat some on my lips right before bed, so that when I wake up in the morning my lips feel soft and smooth. In the winter everyone starts to get colds more often, and this is also great for relieving a red and irritated nose. I rub a little bit of this around it before bed and it feels so much better when I wake up.
Dark Colored Nail Polish: I love a darker manicure in the winter, and these two colors are definitely my top picks at the moment. Yes, I've jumped on board the craze that is Essie's After School Boy Blazer and I'm wearing it on my nails right now. It's the perfect dark blue/black shade and is a universally flattering color. The second color I picked out is a dark burgundy color, which I feel is definitely a winter essential. This one is from Lord & Taylor's winter collection of mini nail polishes.
