Winter Makeup Haul

Now that Christmas and the New Year have come and gone, I feel that it is time for a makeup switch up! After seeing all the new makeup hauls after Christmas, the new product hitting the shelves at Ulta and Sephora, and that general spendy vibe, I usually find myself purchasing a bit too much around this time of year. Whoops….

I have been loving the brand Tarte and have been dying to test out all their products- luckily (for my bank account) I decided to just try out two. First was the classic Light, Camera, Lashes mascara. This mascara has a great applicator, goes on smooth, and never clumps. It is completely buildable, and can be applied lightly or heavily. Next from Tarte, I picked up the Amazonian Clay full coverage powder foundation. I have the liquid version of this goodie and love it, so I knew I would like this version. And boy was I right. It is so light, yet full coverage, and has an amazing range of colors.

My next splurge was the original Naked palette. I own the Naked 3 and adore it, so I knew the original would become a fast favorite. This palette is great on my skin tone, and has a complete array of brown-gold neutrals that are perfect for any season. I can’t wait to play with this a little more and maybe do some makeup looks?! eh? eh?

To work with my new eyeshadow palette, I picked up the Too Faced Shadow Insurance in Champagne. I saw a blog post a while back on this little goodie, and immediately went to pick up one for myself. These primers have such a great pigmentation and allow for the eyeshadows placed over top to shine immensely. This champagne color is delightfully shimmery and brightens up the face during the dark and drab winter. It can be worn alone or under shadow, and looks glorious either way!

Finally, I have jumped on the contouring bandwagon. The Anastasia Contour palette comes with three light shades and three dark shades. They come in a variety of shades- ranging from yellow bases to red bases (allowing for a variety of skin tones). I adore the way these colors are dark enough to shadow and highlight, yet not too harsh. I have been having a lot of fun with this palette so comment below if you’d like a post all about this treat:)

And that’s it for my little winter makeup splurge. I’m hiding my bank cards from myself now…yeesh.
