Making the switch from retail to beauty PR has me focused on testing, researching and trying out a ton of new products...and I love it! Although fashion will always be my one true love, I can't help but admit I am loving my fling with all things beauty. I thought I'd share a few of my favorite winter beauty basics for everyday. 
*All of these products have been purchased by myself and do not reflect my employer/clients!

1. Too Faced - Natural Eye: This eye color palette is just what I was looking for! I tend to stray from bold colors on my eyes, unless it's a special occassion. This natural eye kit has the right amount of soft + slightly sparkly shadows for everyday wear. At first I worried the hues would be heavy and glittery, but they go on perfectly and without looking cakey.

2. Tarte Cosmetics - Lip Lusters: Add just the right amount of moisture and smooth color for the winter. Sometimes, it can get boring to only wear lip conditioner and chapstick, these crayons add a soft pop of color and are not overpowering. 

3. EcoTools Brush Kit - I've been a devote fan of EcoTools for awhile now. To refresh my collection, I picked up a new set of eye brushes the other day. I love that these are an eco-friendly product, plus they are very affordable! 

4. Essie Polishes in ChinChilly and Wrapped in Rubies - I have a nail polish addiction - but really. I picked up these shades from Essie the other day and they have been on heavy rotation ever since. Chinchilly is the perfect neutral for the winter, not too light and with the righ amount of warm color. Wrapped in Rubies has a hint of metallic and shine, making it fun for holiday occassions.

Also in my makeup bag this winter are: a good BB Cream for light coverage and moisture, eye cream to help that sensitive skin, creamy hand lotions and sugar scrubs!

What are your winter beauty basics?
