It may be time to put away the summer hues, but you can still rock a flawless face as long as you adjust your makeup techniques for the new season. Look perfect during your next holiday party with these seven tips!
1: Be Bold
Vibrant colors will keep you from looking washed out with your winter neutrals. Think about golden eyeshadow, purple cat’s eyes or bright red lips. Coordinate your colors with the day’s scarf for a stylish, fashion-forward look.
2: Exfoliate Regularly
Has your skin taken a beating from the wind? Start exfoliating on a weekly or even daily basis. This will eliminate any dry, flaky patches on your cheeks, and if you toss in a moisturizer after the fact, your skin won’t even know that it’s wintertime.
3: Use Airbrushes
Airbrush makeup like Temptu Pro will last longer and look better than its traditional cousin. As a bonus, it won’t rub off on your scarves and high collars. It spreads evenly and sticks carefully to your skin thanks to its unique application process.
4: Use Waterproof Mascara
Keep your eye makeup fresh and neat by investing in waterproof mascara during the winter months. Snowflakes that melt on your eyelashes have the same destructive powers as tears or rain.
5: Hydrate Your Lips
Chapped lips are common during cold temperatures, but you can prevent them from ever arriving with the careful, daily application of hydrating gloss or lipstick infused with UVA/UVB protection.
6: Don’t Forget the Blush
Put some color in your cheeks with a soft winter hue like sunset or dusty rose. Just be careful not to overdo it. A few minutes in the cold can turn a deep pink into a fiery red once your blood vessels start responding to the chill.
7: Embrace Winter Trends
Have you ever applied frosty sparkles to your eyelids? How about red-and-green eyeshadow for a Christmas gathering? Have fun with all the fads that come around every holiday season.
These are just seven tips for flawless makeup even when the weather is bitter cold. Don’t let extreme temperature stop you from looking great!
