December and mid January favorites

Ok so this is really really late but I thought I'll do a quick "favorite posts" as I have couple of products that have been must haves last month and this month.
My makeup needs have changed a bit in the last couple of months. I'm training to run a full marathon in April (wish me luck) and with the cold and snow that we have experienced most of my runs have been in the gym. My makeup has to be simple and quick (can't carry my vanity in the gym bag though wish I could). I reach for eyeshadows that work worn all over the lid, and mascara that does it all in one swipe. I simply don't have time to do all the blending and the countering these days.
Starting with MAC Pro Lash mascara. I love this mascara. I know MAC's mascaras get mixed reviews from a lot of people and I can't say that I love all of them, but pro lash is in the top 10 favourite mascaras for me. I love it because it lengthens, volumes, separates and does not clump. It's instant gratification type of mascara. Once coat gives results. I know this is a fave among MAC artists and I can really understand why. I totally recommend this product.

2. MAC mineralized blush in Warm Soul. This is a minzeralized blush that's a soft brown with tons and tons of gold shimmer thru it. Again a product that gives a bit of a glow so it highlights, it's a tan color so it bronzes the skin and a gorgeous blush to lift up the face. All in one. I took the pic below in direct sunlight so you can see the gold sparkles. When you put this on the cheeks there are no glitter particles. As most mineralized products this works into the skin and becomes more of a glow or shimmer with no glitter.
3. MAC woodwinked. Yet another MAC product. :) What can I say? MAC does some great products. I recently did a post about woodwinked so won't go on details. I love it because as I work into my crease it gives the appearance of two shadows. Perfect for when you're in a hurry.

That's about all I have been wearing in the last couple of months to get a bit of a glow and bronze but yet do it quickly. Craving pink at the moment though so going thru my makeup to find a pretty warm candy pink blush.

Hope you all have had an amazing week.
