Upgrade Your Winter Makeup Routine With These 5 Top-Rated Face Products!

Winter is in full swing--if you're from up north, you know what I'm talking about. As much as I am a summer girl who spends most of her days taking "instagrambale" photos at the beach, I can enjoy a good snow day once in a while. Playing around with different products is kind of my guilty pleasure, so I compiled a list of my favorite winter makeup products you just have to try! Did I mention they are all top-rated at Ulta?

MAC Lipglass- Oyster Girl

This product is my most recent find from Ulta and I have to say that it gives my lips this super frosted sheen that leaves me speechless. This gloss shade is my absolute favorite because I adore the look of a baby pink lip topper. The flecks of iridescent gold add a healthy glow to your pout as well! In terms of formula, this lipglass does have a sticky feel to it, as all lipglosses do. If you are searching for a cool-toned pink gloss for everyday wear, I highly recommend this baby! Whether you choose to wear it alone or use it to top off your lipstick, it will definitely not disappoint!

Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer

This bronzer has been an OG favorite of mine for years and has been an absolute staple in my winter makeup routine. This product is at the top of my list of favorite bronzers because of the fact that the formula is probably one of the best and because of the amazing price point. The Physician's Formula Butter Bronzer adds an island glow to my snow white complexion and graces my face with the scent of coconuts with every use. The color payoff is exceptional and the consistency is as the name suggests--smooth as butter.

Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray

Sometimes even our skin can use a glass of water . . . which is why during the winter months I always make sure I carry my Evian Natural Mineral Water Facial Spray whenever I feel my skin needs a light refresher. I love this product because of the compact size, which is great for on-the-go travel and I love that my skin is getting an extra dose of minerals with every spritz. Sometimes I even use this as a setting spray to add hydration back to my skin after doing a matte makeup look. We know how drying those powders can be!

Tarte Toasted Eyeshadow Palette

Cozy up by the fire and create a smokin' hot eye look using the Tarte Toasted Eyeshadow Palette! This palette is probably one of my favorites to play with, especially during the fall and winter months! This palette is filled with warm tones that will allow you to create some fireside chat friendly looks that pair well with any outfit. The names of the shades are super adorable and the pigmentation is seriously top notch!

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer SPF 30

I recently turned to Aveeno to help rescue my skin after a horrible run in with some skincare products I tried over the summer. I used to use Aveeno body lotion on my face (which honestly works all the same) but I tried the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer with SPF 30 and I am obsessed with the results! My skin is in fact POSITIVELY RADIANT!

As mentioned in my last blog post, I used to be a sucker for cute packaging, which is what caused my skin to go down a road that was hard to reverse. I never was one to rely on makeup to make my skin look better, but before using Aveeno, that's what I was stuck doing. I highly recommend this product for those suffering with dry skin because it is jam packed with great ingredients to improve your skin's texture! I used to have a hard time with moisturizers because if I was using something too heavy, I would break out. I had to find my perfect balance, which this product provided for me!
