tarte must-have products for winter
Even thought the groundhog saw his shadow, looks like we still have a few more weeks of winter left? The harsh, dry Canadian air can wreck havoc on our skin. During the cold winter months, the dead skin layers become more prominent, resulting in dryer skin and chapped lips. There are simple ways to get your glow back, without having to resort to tropical vacations (although that would be nice).
Try to stay away from powder products. These tend to make the skin look dull and dry. Instead, opt for a rich and creamy foundation like tarte Amazonia Clay Full Coverage Foundation. It’s an incredibly thick, yet rich and creamy, long-wearing, full-coverage foundation that provides a flawless finish. It’s formulated with UVA/UVB SPF 15 protection, along with Amazonian clay that instantly adjusts to meet and address your own unique skin concerns. Whether you’re looking to reduce the appearance of pores, conceal discolouration and imperfection or just ensure you have a perfectly flawless complexion, this foundation can do it all. Not only does it have a blendable and buildable texture that’s completely weightless once applied to the skin, it stays in place for upward of 12+ hours. It comes in an array of shades and retails for $51.
Because your foundation is only as good as the brush you use it with, try pairing it with tarte The Buffer Airbrush Finish Bamboo Foundation Brush. With this slightly thicker foundation, the application process can totally change the way it looks and feels on the skin. This large, fluffy, dense, synthetic brush effortlessly allows you to evenly spread on the liquid foundation for a smooth and flawless finish. Use soft circular buffing sweeps across the entire face for seamless, airbrush effect. You can easily achieve a full-coverage, yet lightweight, finish with only the smallest amount of product. The brush helps to seamlessly blend in the foundation into your skin for an extremely natural, your-skin-but-better effect. It retails for $44.
If you’re skin is feeling extra parched, add a few drops of tarte Maracuja Oil. This cold pressed oil from the maracuja fruit pulp helps to nourish, protect and bring life back into dry, dull skin. Its thin, clear texture absorbs into the skin within seconds, without feeling thick, greasy, oily or heavy like other oils. Not only can you mix it into your foundation for a healthy glow, you can also use it nightly as an overnight treatment oil. It instantly helps to smooth out fine lines, moisture and nourish, while calming and soothing the skin. It adds a little brightness back into the skin for a radiant and youthful appearance. This oil retails for $60 for 50ml.
Kissable lips starts with a good exfoliator. tarte Lip Facial Lip Scrub is a gentle twist-up lip scrub that helps to resurface, condition, and protect the lip. Simply twist up and apply the pencil-style tip directly onto your lips. Its micro-fine raw sugar acts as a natural exfoliator to slough off all dead skin cells by gently massaging your fingertips over your lips. The beneficial moisturizing shea butter and rainforest of the sea antioxidant complex deeply penetrates the skin acting as a nourishing and conditioning treatment balm. After the sugar is broken down and almost dissolved, simply remove with a damp cloth. It leaves skin silky-smooth, perfectly plumped and extremely moisturized. It retails for $21.
