What's In My Winter Makeup Bag

It's definitely getting colder and that just excites me so much. I'm definitely a winter bug, I love the layers and the hot chocolate. Oh and Christmas. Don't deny it, its coming..
My make up routine slightly changes when it gets colder as it my face starts to get a little bit battered with the wind, rain and snug scarves which means I change up my everyday products a litle bit so I know that they stay winter proof.
The foundation is key to any winter make up bag and I go for one with a thicker, buildable consistency rather than one that is just going to get blown off by the wind. I'm using the Maxfactor Whipped Creme foundation in 40 Light Ivory as it has a great staying power and I can really build it up and work it well into the skin. My skin, even though its oily, can get dry on the forehead area so I use the Nivea Express Hydration Primer which is so good for those little dry areas and it makes my skin feel so soft. Who doesnt want that?
My Hourglass Ambient Lighting palette is on my face all day, everyday because it's just so bloody good and if you don't have it then you're a fool. Its worth the ridiculous amount of pennies you pay for it, trust me! I have a huge thing for highlight so before I apply radiant light, I apply a little of the NXY Liquid Illuminate on the cheek bones to give it that little extra umph because I dont want to be dull during the winter.
We all know how it goes, the weather gets warmer, the lips get cooler. When the weather gets cooler, the lippies get warmer! and yes there are two Kate Moss for Rimmel London lipsticks in there but no, 107 isnt in there because everyone seems to be pulling out that lip colour for the current season. Instead, I have 08 which is a rosey brown colour and 03 which is light beige toned brown. I'm rubbish at describing lip colours, always have been, but they are really warm toned lip colours which are perfect for the colder weather and also, they're different versions of the Kylie Jenner lip which I know everyone has been loving lately! and of course, why wouldnt we all love to look as gorgeous as Kylie.. 

Does your make up bag change at all over the winter period? Let me know in the comments below!
