Tips To Achieving Glowing, Smooth Skin In The Winter Months

Tips To Achieving Glowing, Smooth Skin In The Winter Months by barbies beauty bits

While the weather outside may be frightful, this doesn’t mean your makeup and skin need to be as well.  During these cold winter months, our skin can sure be affected by these blistering cold winds. So today, I wanted to share with you a product that can help you to have that radiant beauty, even in the winter months.

Dry, itchy skin affects a lot of us and can be most prevalent during this time of year- when the humidity and temperature drops-making our skin particularly vulnerable to dryness and cracking. That is why it is important to take extra special care of skin during the winter, as no one wants to apply makeup to their skin when it is dry and flaky, highlighting our imperfections.

The Solution 
Boy do I have a product for you that can not only smooth the surface imperfections for an incredibly bright complexion, but it also includes rejuvenating ingredients such as retinol and milk protein 20 that condition, balance, and protect the skin from environmental stresses.

Studio Gear PRIME OBJECTIVE SKIN PERFECTING FACE PRIMER Review by barbies beauty bits

So, what is this product? It is Studio Gear’s PRIME OBJECTIVE SKIN PERFECTING FACE PRIMER.  I’ve been a big fan of this companies makeup brushes and that is why I was excited to try out this primer and just in time for the holidays!

With these temperature dips, my skin has sure been craving more moisture and by me adding this primer into my regimen I could really seal in and retain hydration, which sure is a plus.

The PRIME OBJECTIVE is a silicone based face primer that acts to “re-touch”, or visually diminish, imperfections in the surface texture of the skin. PRIME OBJECTIVE contains a sustained release liposome system with retinol that can help support cell turnover and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as a milk protein complex that can help to balance and protect the skin against environmental stresses. The “skin perfecting” effect of this state-of-the-art formula is further enhanced with optical diffusers.

Look For Key Ingredients

Fragrance Free
Another great thing about this product is that it is Paraben-Free and Fragrance-Free, which is essential when are face is exposed to these frigid temperatures as products with fragrances in them can also lead to additional irritation and dryness, which can result in premature wrinkles!

I was very excited to find out that this product also has retinol in it.  You see, there are tons of damaging elements that are skin is exposed to every day, like dust, pollutants, sweat, even makeup, all of which can age the skin. Retinol (Vitamin A) is a useful product that helps diminish these signs of aging and visibly contribute to improving the appearance of your skin.

Makeup Application
Aside from the skincare aspect, this facial primer helps to prep the skin for makeup applications. I’m sure we’d all agree that dry flaking skin is a nightmare to dry to apply makeup. 

If you follow my blog you know my thoughts on primers, they are a must.  Without them, your makeup will sit in your pores, create false wrinkles, while leaving a dull appearance...period! On the other hand, when you do use a primer, you'll find that your foundation will have a much smoother finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines and this primer has really help keep my facial makeup in place, while adding that extra glow just in time for the holiday season!

Tis The Season To Glam Up Your Beauty Routine by Barbies Beauty Bits and Glossybox

Need a little help with your holiday beauty look, well GlossyBox is here to help with their Holiday Limited Edition Box!  December's holiday box includes six full-size products worth over $184; now that is a gift! This box of holiday cheer contains skincare products, glitzy lipstick, eyeshadow, brow definer, and a healing cleanser that will help you to glam up your beauty routine this holiday season!

Beauty tips for the holiday season by barbies beauty bits

So let’s dive in!

Bow To The Brow
The holidays are a perfect time to show off your eyes, and your eyebrows are a key to this. Eyebrows form a frame around your eyes taking them from Plain Jane to Glamorous Brow, in a matter of minutes and the RETRO BROW – PRIME & EXTEND DUO, by NutraLuxe MD, does exactly this.  I love this product as it is an all-in-one-product.  It includes a pigmented primer that acts as a holding base and when fused with the cellulose fibers, amplifies the appearance of your natural eyebrow into full dramatic brows.

How to use:
• Step 1: Apply primer to each eyebrow.
• Step 2: Immediately follow with fibers on top of the primed area.
• Step 3: Finish with another coat of primer to lock in the fibers.
*Repeat steps 1-3 for a more dramatic look.

Now that you have framed your eyes, you are ready for the star of the night, your eyeshadow.  This month’s Glossybox Dome shadow comes in a variety of colors, and I was happy to get the burgundy color in my box as this color is a favorite of mine.  This eyeshadow has a metallic finish, perfect for the holiday season!

Add A Glow To Your Skin
There were three skincare products in this box, first is the SKIN & CO ROMA KIN & CO 'Truffle Therapy' Cleansing Oil.  I’ve seen this product at Nordstrom, so to get this in my Glossybox was wonderful.  I love that it is paraben free and boy is this fancy as it has truffle extract. While it is strong enough to remove your makeup, it is gentle on the skin for cleansing.

How to use: To achieve the full benefits of the cleansing oil, shake the bottle gently to mix the two phases. Saturate a cotton pad to gently and effectively remove your makeup and impurities.

Now it is time to let it snow, glow with  Babor masterpiece ampoule set.  Low humidity and cooler temperatures can leave your skin dry, flaky, and itchy. So having a product to protect your skin from drying out in the winter is a must.

This skincare duo pairs two types of ampoules to instantly repair and protect dry or dehydrated skin.

Daytime: Use Hydra Plus Active Fluid to get an instant moisture boost.  This product has hyaluronic acid which is a premier hydrating ingredient for skin helping to smooth out your complexion leaving it feeling softer, smoother, with a radiant, hydrated glow!

Nighttime: Give your skin a boost with black truffle and black seaweed.  The active night fluid helps to regenerate your skin overnight!

Last but not least is the AVANCÉ+ INVISIBLE PORES NIGHT DETOX SERUM.  This product has multiple benefits as well; it is kind of like a nighttime primer for your skin!

primer tips by barbies beauty bits

If you follow my blog you know my thoughts on primers, they are a must.  Without them, your makeup will sit in your pores, create false wrinkles, while leaving a dull appearance...period! On the other hand, when you do use a primer, you'll find that your foundation will have a much smoother finish while minimizing the appearance of pores and fine lines. While this is not a substitute for a makeup primer, it really helps to prep your skin for better makeup application.

This serum has some Anti-bacterial /Anti-inflammatory action to help minimizes your pores. It also detoxifies and encourages collagen synthesis & promotes cellular renewal.

Make sure your lips are mistletoe ready with bad Medina shimmery lipstick. Lips with a bit of glitz, perfect for a kissable pout!
