Winter Warmer Trinny London makeup look

My winter warmer Trinny London everyday makeup look

I’m not paid to write any of these blog posts or film these videos – this is actually what I put on my face most days. Recently, however, I was sent two TL products*, which I promptly slipped into this winter warmer Trinny London everyday makeup look.

The below routine is a slight change on ones I’ve shared with you previously … you can catch up on my previous makeup posts featuring Trinny London here:

I’m still wearing makeup even though I’m staying at home

My winter warmer look is a look that helps me feel all sun-kissed and glowy – defying how cold it feels out. This might seem kind of strange when many places in the southern hemisphere are in the depths of winter but, for me, it signals the optimism that comes knowing that spring is just six weeks away.

As for my love of TL?

One of the most asked makeup/beauty questions I get is: “am I still buying Trinny London makeup products?”  Short answer: yes. Long answer: there are TL products I’ll never stop buying and I’m just as likely to be seduced by new releases too.

I’m completely on board the TL cult train. I’ve gone from someone who’s mostly worn powder over her foundation and powder eye shadows to someone who loves the feels and look of cream makeup products. It took me a while to be convinced they wouldn’t simply slip off my skin but once I’d given it a good go and broken my previous makeup habits, I was all in. 

I was initially seduced by the convenience of the jars or T-Pots that click together to create a highly portable makeup kit (or “stack”) but have stuck around because the products really suit my 53-year-old skin.

Since my last post, I’ve even booked a virtual appointment … something that evolved out of COVID times when the TL stores in the UK couldn’t open. 

The Zoom appointment was great (my wi-fi not so) but it did lead me down the path to finally trying the TL “foundation” Just a Touch. I was more confident in choosing my colour with the makeup artist’s help. Trinny’s concept with foundation is definitely less is more and only putting it where it’s needed. It took me a bit of time to be confident of that but she’s right. Yes, I’ll still reach for a long-lasting foundation for an event or photoshoot, but for the everyday I brush in Just a Touch over BFF and BFF Eye. I look fresh, evenly toned and ready for the day.

  1. I need guidance on what make-up will best suit me. I’m 70 yrs old have olive skin, brown eyes, and ash blonde very short hair, original hair colour dark brown

  2. Hi Nikki
    Thanks for the make up up date. I too have been interested in using the Trinny of London products, but was nervous about what skin tone I have. I noticed you were using the BFF cream in the medium. it suited you, but I would of thought that you were fairer than that, as your hair seems naturally quite light? Which skin tome were you matched to? I think I need to go back to the website and review my skin tone.
    I have been using the It cosmetics your skin but better (in Medium) for a few years now and it is the best CCs that I have ever tried, I had been getting it from the USA when visiting.

      Hi Jean, yes initially I was buying and wearing Medium/Light – my match2me colour but didn’t notice much of a difference so tried Medium and very happy. I also love IT Cosmetics CC Cream and wear Medium in that one too – way more coverage than BFF but great for me to have as an alternative to a foundation.

  3. Hi Nikki,
    Thanks for your post. I’m really keen to try Trinny London, but always worry about buying without being able to try first, especially makeup. Also, is there anywhere in Australia to purchase her products, or are they only available online from overseas? Thanks!

  4. Hi Nikki
    I followed your guide for the summer makeup with TL and am really happy with it but will expand my collection of pots with some of your winter options.
    Thanks so much for inspiring me to do just a little bit more with my makeup – thought at 75 I was past it!

  5. Hi Nikki I’m looking at booking a TL virtual appt too however due to the AUS time difference they have no appts available in daylight hours – all are between 5.30pm to 5.30am ☹️
    Did you find light was an issue when you had your appt? Could the assistant get a good read on your skin tone, colours etc?
