There’s no denying it. We’ve got the winter blues. We’re missing warm summer nights and lazy days at the beach. But just because the weather is dull doesn’t mean your makeup has to be!
Here are our favorite tips to fake the sun-kissed look while you’re missing the sun.
- Obviously bronzer is your best friend in the winter. Make sure you pick one that has more brown tones rather than orange ones. The trick to using bronzer is to only use it where the sun would naturally hit your face: top of your forehead, your temples, bridge of your nose, apples of your cheeks, and chin.
Makeup Artist Tip: Don’t forget to shade your jawline and neck so your face doesn’t look significantly darker than the rest of your body!
- If you don’t want to use bronzer, you can still get a glowing look by combining a highlighter and blush with a neutral shimmer eye shadow. Make sure your eyes stand out with mascara or eyeliner.
- Stick with warm tones like pinks, golds, and browns in your makeup during the dark winter months, as they’ll help you achieve that natural glow.
Don’t forget to change up your skincare routine in the winter to take care of your skin! Make sure you are exfoliating regularly. It’s hard to do this during the winter because your skin is already so dry, but it’s important to slough off those dead skin cells. Try a deep moisturizer or a moisturizing facemask to combat dry skin issues.
