Whatever The Weather Products


I don't know about you but when the days get shorter and the evenings get colder my skin tends to go on a mental breakdown. Whenever the seasons start to change my skin for the first month or so it goes through some changes to adapt to the weather. Fussy skin I know. My skincare and makeup routine always tends to change with the weather, I ditch bb creams for foundations and everything tends to be a lot more coverage for winter. I decided to share with you some products I've found great for winter but are also great for summer too - products that can handle any season, whatever the weather!

Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation - review
Having purchased this back over the summer I can tell you from my own experience this is a great foundation for all seasons. I didn't use this all the time in summer as like I said before my skincare changes and I tend to switch it for something lighter. But, this foundation never melted off in summer it stayed put and since it is winter now I've recently returned to this for thicker coverage. Winter is a bit of a messy month in the UK with rain, wind, sleet etc and this foundation has definitely stayed put all day long through all weathers! High coverage, dewy finish and lasts all day long - brilliant.

Dr Lip Nipple Balm
This product is the definition of 'a little goes a long way' I always grab this product whenever my lips start to feel dry or sore. I don't use this through the day as the coverage is a little thick and sticky but, I apply this over night and by morning my lips are back to soft and smooth! This lip balm can handle all weathers because even in the summer when my lips were feeling a little sun-burnt or just down this always helped them! Definitely recommend this if you suffer with chapped lips.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Primer
I go on about this eye primer a lot and in one of my previous posts I've even compared it with Urban Decay's primer potion and I always said this was better value. I've used this primer every single time I go to wear eyeshadow. Even in the hot months I thought my eyeshadow would naturally melt off with the heat but this amazing product stops it from happening. My eyeshadow still looks great 5 hours later its incredible. I seriously recommend this eye primer if you want to be wearing eyeshadow all day long!

Benefit High Beam Highlighter
This is an oldy but goody product to me as it has always been one of my favourite products for dewy highlights. This definitely tackles those horrible wintry days and it definitely keeps your face looking upbeat and healthy. I always prefer cream to powder highlights in winter especially though because I feel like my skin sometimes needs that extra bit of layer whereas, I'd feel like a powdery highlight would eventually drop off if that makes sense. Try and keep your eyes peeled in Boots stores for these sample sizes as some stores are selling Benefit stocking fillers.

Makeup Revolution Blushing Heart*
This is a newbie welcomed to my makeup drawer but I am already in love with it. I love this blusher it reminds me so much of the Too Faced trios. I think this is perfect for both summer and winter as you have 3 different colours or if you are feeling fancy like I do you could swirl your brush in all three! I love the finish these give my cheeks and I can't get over how long lasting they are as well. £5! Everyone needs a blushing heart added to their Christmas lists!

What are your products that survive whatever the weather??
