January is normally a very long cold and miserable month here in New England, but we’ve lucked out this year with fairly temperament weather that hasn’t dipped below 30 degrees Fahrenheit much! I’m sure this stroke of luck thanks to Global Warming (tear) will not last long. Today, I’m rounding up some of my monthly beauty favorites that I’ve been using a lot lately.
Kevin Murphy Antigravity Spray – My hair has thinned out a lot in the past year, so I’ve been spritzing this volumizing spray in my hair before blowdrying it or even if I’m going to let my hair air dry. The directions online say to apply it to dry hair, but I’ve been using it as a spray to wet hair. My hairdresser recommended this product to me and used it on my wet hair before blowdrying too, so I think it’s okay to go against the rules. I definitely notice a difference when I use it and appreciate that it doesn’t make your hair feel like there’s extra product in it or weigh it down.
MAC Kinda Sexy Lipstick – This is such a nice everyday shade that can be worn from day to night. I love how it provides a subtle amount of color to my lips that I can easily take from the office to date night. I’ve been carrying this color around with me in my purse lately and loving it.
Topshop Glow Highlighter in Polished – I’ve been loving this shimmering white highlighter on my face this winter. The wear lasts all day and it’s a perfect color for my skin during extra pale season. I apply it along the strobing parts of my face and just think it provides a nice beautiful glow.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes in Nude – This is a nice drugstore beauty find that I use to line my bottom waterline. It subtly makes my eyes appear brighter, more awake, and helps reduce the appearance of eye redness. I hear this is a good technique for older women to use to help the eyes look more fresh.
Smith’s Rosebud Salve in Strawberry – This is handy to use for on the go in the winter. I don’t like to carry the tub along with me in my purse, so the tube is great for travel. It helps keep your lips moisturized and soft for on the go.
Aesop Resurrection Aromatique Hand Balm – Okay this is definitely the Holy Grail of hand creams. Yes, it’s flipping expensive for hand cream but so worth it in my opinion. I reserve this for special use because of the cost, so I apply it every single night before bedtime. It’s important to massage it into your hands, nails, and cuticles thoroughly to really reap the rewards of this hand cream. Your hands will be soft when you wake and it really helps build strong fingernails which is something I use to struggle with until I started using this product. I’m in love and the smell is heavenly too. This is definitely a bedside beauty staple must.
