You asked! Honest Answers.
Winter might feel dry and dull but your skin doesn’t have to look the part. We went to LA-based celebrity makeup artist and licensed esthetician, Shekinah Garner, for her tricks for keeping radiant, dewy-looking skin during the harshest conditions.
“As much as I’m on the lookout for the hottest new shades of lip cream or shadow palette, I’m equally scouring the market for for new discoveries in anti-aging skincare,” she says. “‘Cause let’s face it: We’re all aging and as I always tell my clients, preventing signs of aging is easier than reversing signs of aging!”
She gave us her 3 must-have beauty faves plus a host of tricks:
My new favorite glow-enhancing, hydrating, smell-good luxury product… is from German leaders in skin care, BABOR. They just launched their DOCTOR BABOR BOOST CELLULAR Bi-Phase Ampoules, which are packed with vitamin C, bistorta root, sea buckthorn extract and meadowfoam seed oil. These naturally derived yet extremely effective ingredients improve not only the tone of the skin but also the texture, while giving an undeniable glow. I’m obsessed with this fluid/oil emulsion and love how each “dose” or “serving size” is perfectly encapsulated in little glass vials, ensuring that the integrity of the ingredients are preserved. They literally don’t meet air until they are broken open and pressed into skin. This impresses me because who else does that!? So innovative.
Next on my must-have list for winter.. is Elevated Hydration Mist from Honest Beauty. Cold weather season is notorious for leaving skin feeling a little less hydrated and plump. I love having a hydrating mist in my bag to pull out at anytime and use over any makeup look I’m rocking. You can give your skin a drink of water with just a simple easy sprits of this ultra fine mist. It doesn’t disturb your makeup at all and feels so refreshing, instantly relaxes tight dry skin, and smells amazing. I’m a big believer in hyaluronic acid, and this product is infused with it. (In case you didn’t know, this amazing acid attracts moisture and locks it in!) I won’t leave the house without this with me this winter!
Last but not least is the little do-all… Magic Balm. Honest Beauty really out did themselves when they released this little must-have! It’s literally so multi-purpose, I can use it on my cuticles, under eyes, lips, pretty much anywhere needing some extra care when the temperatures dip toward freezing.
