1) Get Glowing
Dry, dull winter skin can benefit from a boost of luxurious hydration and dewy luminosity from a lightweight BB Cream. Your easy BB covers all the bases… moisturizer, sunscreen, concealer and even skin treatments for a barely-there natural look that’s just refreshingly pretty.
2) Winter Warm Up
A fresh bit of sun-kissed color can warm up dreary winter days. Try adding a touch of bronzer to your moisturizer or BB cream. Don’t be heavy-handed. You want fresh, subtle radiance, not just-back-from-St.-Barts color. And while you’re at it, try switching your blush from powder to cream in a dreamy peachy shade. Hit the apples of your cheekbones and you’ll look fresh and flushed.
3) Lip Bomb
Freshen up your lipstick with a peachy pink shade that takes a nude lip and kicks it up just a tad for a soft, feminine, just-kissed look. Top it all with a coat of gloss to visually plump out the little lip lines. You could even try a plumping variety that stimulates collagen for a more naturally full pout.
4) Brows that Wow
The quickest way to reverse the years with makeup is to perk up your brows, filling in sparse patches and shaping as you go. Full brows look more youthful, so don’t overpluck. For a more natural look, try one of the new brow fillers that actually imparts hair-like fibers to the brow line. This will give you a softer appearance than the old pencil and shadow standby.
5) A Natural Eye for Beauty
The standout in our fresh-faced look has to be the eyes. But not in a dramatic, smokey eye sort of way. A bold pop of luscious lashes is divine with the more natural face and lip. Try a brand new bottle of one of the lengthening varieties of mascara Deep rich lashes and a touch of soft pink highlight in the corners of your eyes will really make your eyes sparkle.
