Au Naturale Supernatural Metallics: Shimmering Neutrals Duo
This eyeshadow cream duo features the shades Lyra, a crisp golden yellow, and Vela, a light golden bronze. These pretty shades are super easy to apply. Just use your finger and swipe the product across your eyelid to instantly add some warmth and glow to your eyes (bonus - it can also be used as a highlighter). This particular set is pretty neutral, but the shades add the perfect hint of warmth for the winter months, and the shimmer can add a festive touch to any holiday party.
They also are certified organic, and Au Naturale assures that each ingredient used in all of their products is ethically and naturally sourced and factually healthy. All of these things mean that you’ll probably glow inside and outside while shimmying the night away in these eyeshadows.
RMS “Un” Cover-up Foundation and Concealer
The RMS “Un” Cover-up works both as a light coverage foundation and concealer created using raw, food-grade, and organic ingredients. RMS also makes sure all of its products exclude any harmful ingredients or chemicals. Even though the “Un” cover-up cream foundation only comes in sixteen shades (after applying, the shade will adjust to your skin tone), this product has the best benefits for dry skin in winter. It moisturizes, heals, and hydrates skin, while also reducing the look of pores and making skin look more radiant. This foundation is the perfect choice to keep your skin healthy and glowing through the cold, blustery months.
Crystal Créme Shimmer Lip Crayon in Molten Chocolate
If you want to combine a dark lip and shimmer, then look no further than Bite Beauty’s Crystal Créme Shimmer Lip Crayon in Molten Chocolate. This color is described as a “Shimmering cocoa plum with maroon pearl,” and the lip crayon features mineral shimmer, orange peel wax, and grape skin extract to create the perfect hydrating lip product.
It even has a built-in sharpener so you can keep your lips looking clean and precise through the changing seasons. Bite beauty guarantees that this is the sophisticated version of glitter and that you can feel great about it being clean, vegan, and gluten-free.
