Despite already being halfway through November (definitely a little behind on this post!), I thought I would go ahead and share with you the products that in my November makeup bag. For me, November means acknowledging that winter is indeed coming/here (it’s snowing outside as I write this), and that’s reflected in my makeup choices.
Benefit Rockateur Blush – This is a rediscovery from my collection. I purchased it last winter, but it ended up getting pushed to the back of my drawer. I love the shade, it’s a dark rosey tone with a little some simmer to give it dimension. I’ve been wearing this non stop, it pairs perfectly alongside the darker lips and eyeshadows I’m wearing this month.
Almay Smart Shade Luminous Primer - With the colder weather, my skin needs all the luminosity that it can get. This primer is great, because not only does it give my skin a much needed glow, it also helps my makeup last all day.
Flower Cosmetics Eyeshadow Quad in EQ3 Foxy Browns - I was super excited when Flower Beauty launched in Canada, and immediately rushed out to pick up some of the products. This quad is perfect for the smokey eye looks that I love for the cooler months. All the shades are super buttery and pigmented.
NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk – These butter lipsticks are amazing! They’re pigmented and glossy, but can be worn sheer or build up. As with October, I’ll still in love with dark lips, this shade reminds me a sheer more hydrating version of MAC’s Heroin.
Clarins Instant Concealer in 01 – In addition to needing some serious glow, I also need to hide the redness that comes with winter skin. This concealer is a new favourite! It’s not drying on the skin, and offers serious lightweight coverage. Fast becoming a favourite.
Maybelline Brow Drama – This fall has been all about the brows for me. I’ve always maintained them, but now I’m starting to actually work with them, and not just ignore them. This brow mascara is perfect, because it defines, fills in some sparser areas and sets everything in place, in one smooth motion. Perfect for 6am makeup time.
So there you have it, the items featuring prominently in my November makeup bag.
