Now that we are into February, I'm really beginning to feel Winter's harsh effects on my dry pale skin. I don't know about you guys, but this time of year really takes a toll on my self confidence. I've written about this before with some clarity, but I'll admit that at the moment my eczema is the worst it's ever been and I blame the ridiculously dry climate I live in. I want to scratch my legs off!

In an effort to distract from all that, I've been enjoying some rather romantic looking products to bring life to my face. With Valentine's Day in exactly one week, I'm using rosy-toned hues on my eyes, lips, and cheeks. Products with a slight sheen or hint of shimmer are my go-tos this month to add some warmth to my complexion, and also to remind myself that Spring will be here before we know it! Each item is listed below.

1. Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Flawless Filter: I love mixing this in with my regular foundation, concentrating on my cheeks for a "lit from within" glow. It's far too glowy for my preference on its own, but when mixed with other foundation it really is a lovely product for instant dewiness.

2. Ouai North Bondi Perfume: I can't get enough of Jen Atkin's The Ouai line, and this soft, beachy scent takes me back to Summer where I always long to be - when my skin isn't dry and itchy!

3. Charlotte Tilbury Eyeshadow Palette: I've used this palette so often that I forced myself to take a break from it last month, but now is the perfect time for these warm buttery shades. A little goes a long way because they are so pigmented, but they certainly add just the right amount of definition to the eyes.

4. Jo Malone English Pear & Freesia Creme: I keep this in my bag and apply to my hands throughout the day. It's very nourishing without feeling greasy. I linked the large size because the set mine came in sold out during the holidays.

5. Sara Happ Lip Slip: I really can't decide which I prefer more, this or the Laneige Lip Mask, but for the moment this is what I'm reaching for to tame dry lips. It glides on smoothly and just feels SO LUXE. Bonus - it smells divine and lasts for hours.

6. Tarte Exposed Blush: This made all the beauty blogger rounds a few years ago, and it's still one of my favorite Winter blush shades. It brightens up dull, lifeless skin and looks great no matter what other products you use alongside it. Exposed is a timeless neutral blush.

What beauty products are you currently using? I'm always interested to hear what you're loving in Winter. I need all the help I can get!
