Spoiler Alert: you will see most of these products in my January 2013 favourites video since I have enjoyed wearing them so much!
On the skin I have been priming with Sibu Hydrating Serum followed by Murad Essential C Day Moisturizer. I skipped foundation and used Revlon PhotoReady Concealer (in the shade 02 Light) all over - focusing on the inside of my face and blending outwards with a synthetic buffing brush. This concealer is awesome and really works for me now that my skin is more normal/combination in the winter.
I powdered with Chanel Universal Loose Powder.
Under the eyes I used my trusty Armani Master Corrector (#1) and Dior Nude Concealer (Shades #1 and #2 mixed).
Now on to the fun stuff:
This Dior palette from their 2012 holiday collection creates the perfect brown smoky eye. I used the lighter shade all over the lid, the shimmery cool-toned bronze in the centre of the lid and the satin/matte brown in the crease and along the lash lines. The top two creamy products in the palette are an eye primer (the only disappointing product of the bunch) and a brow liner that works really well for me. It also comes with a mini DiorShow New Look mascara. At $40 this really is an awesome little palette. (Link)
I bronzed with my usual Dior Nude bronzer in shade 02, and added Tarte Exposed blush on the apples of my cheeks a bit heavier than I usually do.
To finish off, let me introduce one of my favourite lipsticks ever. I will need to do another blog post solely on it, or maybe just stop slacking and film a new favourite lipsticks video but until then, the shade is called Grace and it's by Hourglass (Link). Texture very similar to Tom Ford lipsticks and the shade is the perfect nude with a hint of peach. If you like YSL Rouge Volupte #1, #2, Tom Ford Blush Nude or MAC Shy Girl... give this a try. It's so good!
