Beauty | Golden Rose

I don't know about you guys, but this Arctic weather we've had recently has really payed havoc with my skin - My face doesn't agree with the cold at all. I've upped my skincare routine (which I should have probably posted about before doing this - oh well) but I've also altered my daytime makeup routine too, in order to give myself a more rosie style glowing complexion. Here are the products I've been using...





Rimmel true match perfection foundation: It's no secret I've been using the same foundation now for a good eight years or so now, yes I know how boring this is, yes I know what a bad beauty blogger I am, but after almost a decade I've stepped out of my comfort zone!! Shock horror!! I opted for the true match perfection foundation today as it gives a much more dewy appearance, is light reflecting & pretty much perfect for rejuvenating my skin. The coverage is light to medium, applies like a dream and strangely smells absolutely delicious. I'm excited to keep using this over Spring/Summer.

Rimmel wake me up concealer: This pretty much does what it says on the tin, I wrote a blog post a little while ago about this go to concealer. It's fab & gives an amazing amount of coverage as well as giving me that much needed brightness. I've been using this for a little while now and it doesn't seem to be making a dent in the tube... Maybe it's everlasting? Wishful thinking Claire!

Benefit brow zings: Could I have used any other brow product? At the moment for me, this is the ultimate in brow grooming - I need to try the Anastasia brow wiz, that seems to be doing to rounds at the moment doesn't it, but for now I'm sticking with my original.

Urban Decay naked 3: The most amazing palette I think I've ever owned, I couldn't not make use of the rose gold hues this palette has to offer! I used the shades burnout & buzz underneath my eyes to add to the rosie glow. I've really been enjoying colour underneath my eyes recently, rather than on the lid as I think it gives a much more interesting look.

Makeup Revolution blush: I've hit it off with most Makeup Rev products, but their blushers are out of this world! I own eight (oops!) and love them all but I think the shade 'now' works best with this look because it's the pinkiest & the rosiest one I own. These blushers are all incredibly pigmented, so a little goes a long way - I can't imagine using anything else!

Dior addict lipstick: An oldie but a goodie of mine. I used shade 681 Icone, which I'm pretty sure is out of stock at the moment. I'm not normally a barbie pink type of gal, but I think it works perfectly with this look.

How have you guys been combating the bitter cold weather we've been having? I could really do with a really rejuvenating face mask to add to my skincare routine if you have any recommendations?

Lots of love | Claireabella.x

  3. Really lovely make-up look! Winter is really tough on our skin, isn't it?! I tend to use a heavier face moisturiser during winter, and make sure I'm keeping up with my skin care routine and not getting lazy. I love lots of face masks from Montagne Jeunesse; they're super affordable and have loads of varieties and plus, they are cruelty-free! I love the self-heating fudge sauna mask for a lovely warming experience. xxx

    1. Yeah, I feel like I've been really struggling recently, more than previous years too. My skins taken a battering! I'll have to try the Montagne Jeunesse one, it's not a brand I've heard of tbh but i'll do some research definitely! X

  4. The Makeup Revolution line still hasn't hit my local Superdrug - it's really frustrating as I always see people rave about their products and they're so cheap too! xx
