The reality is that every season comes with its skincare challenges. Now that winter has officially arrived you can expect your skin to become more prone to dryness and dullness. The good news is that circumventing winter damage and keeping your makeup flawless is not that hard with a little effort. Here are a few makeup tips for winter to keep you looking gorgeous and fresh.
Flawless Coverage with Skincare Benefits
When it comes to coverage, look for products with moisturizing and hydrating benefits. Hyaluronic acid is all the craze these days and our BH Naturally Flawless foundation has been reformulated to include this amazing ingredient. Our foundation provides medium to full coverage with a natural satin finish and comes in 24 shades to flatter multiple skin tones.
Also, don’t forget to use primer as a base for your concealer and foundation. Primer is especially beneficial for uneven and oily skin and it helps your makeup last longer. Try our new Perfecting Primer, a convenient twist-up stick of sheer, creamy complexion correction that keeps your makeup looking fresh and flawless all day. Our lightweight formula instantly blurs the look of large pores, fine lines, discoloration and other imperfections.
Lastly, conceal and reveal your best side. Hide imperfections, neutralize discoloration, and brighten your complexion instantly. Our Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer is a fave and has been used by celebrities like Cardi B for her pregnancy photo shoot.
Consume Foods that Make your Skin Glow
Have you heard the cliche, “you are what you eat?” When it comes to your skin that’s pretty true. For example, consuming broth like a chicken or vegetable broth daily can aid digestion and help skin glow. Some other beneficial foods include avocado, carrots, pumpkin and salmon which contains omega-3 fatty acids, shown to reduce inflammation and the signs of aging in the body and on the skin. But don’t take our word for it. Do some googling to discover the best foods for your skin.
You may not be getting a tan this winter, but it’s easy to embellish your features in a dreamy spectrum of color! Brighten the face with a bold lippie, dusting of glitter or highlight, or burst of blush this season to show your true colors and feel the winter glam!
Red lips are a holiday classic that go great with any outfit or technique. Pair with a little black dress at your company party for sultry vibes, or uggs and a cute scarf to make snow angels with your besties. Not to mention… red is a fresh and fierce hue that adds a little edge in the winter season. Can you say fire and ice vibes? Try our Liquid Linen Long Lasting Lip Color in Maria to look ravishing in red - or choose from multiple other shades for a pop of pink or peach! Pssst… don’t forget to pair your lovely lip with bold and brilliant eye effects - courtesy of our Take Me Back to Brazil - Rio Edition palette or our Eyelights Eye Toppers!
At last… cheeks! Add a pop of captivating color with our Classic Blush palette - a set of 10 rich hues ranging from pinks and roses to cocoas to look cheeky in the cold weather. Looking for a little shine? You’ll sparkle brighter than the holiday lights with shimmery items like our Spotlight Highlight and Duolight Highlight palettes. One swipe on your nose, cheeks, or forehead and you’ll be merry and bright all season long!
There’s a reason everyone tells us to drink more water… because it’s a winter MIRACLE! Take a break from hot cocoa, eggnog, and peppermint lattes to drink more water, your body will thank you!
It can be tempting to blast the heater during the colder months, but did you know the dry air can make your skin start to crack and chap? EW! Combat this pesky problem by drinking multiple glasses of water per day, even if you don’t feel thirsty. Not only will it keep your skin gorgeous and glowing, but it can also improve your immune system and keep you from catching a dreaded winter cold!
One look at our Instagram feed shows tons of holiday makeup tutorials, candy cane eye art, and strategically posed selfies in front of the tree. The options for makeup techniques are endless! Draw inspo from your friends and faves to step up your beauty routine this season. Whether it’s your best friend and the red and green cut crease she finally mastered, or a step-by-step tutorial on the sparkly eye from your fave YouTube superstar… don’t be afraid to experiment with new colors and techniques!
The beauty community is all about empowerment, showing the love to other gorgeous guys and gals who express themselves through makeup. We know we’re inspired every time we pick up palettes from fab influencers like Sylvia Gani and ItsMyRayeRaye - with each shade picked by the beauty superstars to represent their own ultra-glam style.

Of course, sometimes inspiration is right there in front of you. Ask friends for makeup tips and tricks or even give each other holiday makeovers to bring out the beauty in each other. The holidays are all about giving, and the greatest gift of all is a good time with friends… especially when there’s makeup involved!
