Fall/winter fashion is such a difficult thing for me. I can’t wear wool because it causes rashes, so big chunky sweaters are completely out. I can’t wear turtlenecks and I strongly prefer 3/4 length sleeves. I go shopping every winter looking for something interesting, but I always end up lost!
On to my favorites!
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge
Many dupes of the Beauty Blender sponge have come out, but I usually prefer the original because it is softer. In this case, I found that the Real Techniques sponge is as soft and bouncy as the Beauty Blender. In fact, the flat side makes it even easier to apply and blend foundation!
YSL Le Teint Encre De Peau foundation
It looks like this foundation has been discontinued in the US. It feels very light on the skin but the coverage is really good!
Milani Shadow Eyez in Sand Dunes (link goes to my review)
I also mentioned this product last month, and I am still enjoying using this as an eyeshadow base. It really doesn’t crease throughout the day!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush
I have a love-hate relationship with this blush. I love how it looks on my skin, but I hate how it looks completely different in the pan versus on my skin. For example, see the mauve tone at the end of the palette? It’s called Mood Exposure, and while it looks plummy in the pan, it looks bright pink on my skin!
