The Snow Glow

As much as I have a love/hate relationship with snow itself (love looking at it, hate falling over in it) I always adore the fresh faced rosy glow it gives you and seeing as Christmas is just around the corner and dull winter skin is rife I thought I'd round up my favourite products that I use to create this pretty wintery look without the extreme weather conditions...

Rimmel Wake Me Up / Without a doubt my all time favourite autumn/winter foundation. This brings the dullest winter skin back to life with it's gorgeous glowy finish and also offers amazing coverage so the damage of all those Christmas parties/chocolate binges go undetected. Plus it comes in at under £10. Result!
Bourjois Delice De Poudre / Okay, so snow might not give you much of a tan, but no one wants to be pale for party season! Well this has just the right balance between matte and shimmer finish with a natural brown toned shade that leaves you looking bronzed and beautiful despite your face craving a hot holiday.
MAC 'Let Me Pop' Paint Pot / This eyeshadow is a new make up love which I picked up a few weeks ago. As much as I like a good dark smokey eye or delve into cranberry realms it's refreshing to brighten up those peepers with a bit of copper all round the eyes for a youthful wide eyed 'Ooo there's snow outside' look.
Benefit Watts Up / The ultimate product in creating a soft 'snow glow' complexion, Watts Up really is the most amazing wintry highlighter. The dual ended stick/sponge design makes application a dream and the finish is very beautiful. This is also one of Millie Mac's faves and you know that makes it a winner in my book!
Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch / This time of year is not only full of chilly weather, but also late night frivolities which means an under eye concealer should become your new best friend. I've tried quite a few of these 'Touche Eclat' dupes and this is by far the best as it both conceals and highlights ridiculously well.
Sleek 'Lace' Blush by Three / As a peach cream blush addict I struggle to find powder berry blushes that I love, but I've got to say I adore the middle rose gold shade 'guipure' in this palette. It gives you the perfect 'snowball fight' pinched cheek perk up with an added subtle gold shimmer which screams 'partayy time!'

How do you create the 'Snow Glow'?


  1. I've just bought the sleek lace blush palette too and I really like it!its the first time ive tried sleek blush but it seems so nice and pigmented:)xxx

  6. That sleek blush trio looks gorgeous!! Love it x

  7. I love the Rimmel foundation, however I find it is too shimmery so pick it with mac face and body which makes a perfect combo! I have been wanting to try watts up for years (literally!) but have never got round to it due to its high price! :( Rachel x

  8. Where did you get the jasmine candle? I am obsessed with jasmine, and can't find a candle that smells strongly enough - do you recommend it? xx


Thank you for making me a happy bunny!
