Really good winter makeup tricks are so hard to come by! I've searched all over for winter makeup tricks that are easy to follow and that actually make sense to use in the winter. The winter time is not all about deep, dark colors and hues that you'd never be caught dead wearing in the summer time. It's more about how you take care of your skin and how you can really bring out the beauty, even if the backdrop is all snowy white. So girls, are you ready to explore some of my makeup tricks specifically for the winter?
1. Oil-Free Moisturizer First
One of the most important winter makeup tricks that I do every day is put on an oil-free moisturizer. This will ensure that your skin stays beautiful and that you don't get overly dry. The biggest thing that you've got to think about when the temperatures start to drop is your skin becoming dry and hard to cover. So moisturize, girls!
2. Light Foundation
When you are putting on your foundation in winter, make sure that the foundation is light, airy and that it covers. You don't ever want something that is going to be super heavy, and while you might need some additional coverage, why not go with some lighter formula concealer? Just because it's winter, don't get into the heavy, liquid foundation!
3. No Heavy Glosses
What a lot of women do when the temperatures drop and the snow hits is stock up on heavy lip glosses. That isn't the case this winter, girls! Drop the heavy and weighed down glosses and instead, opt for something that is light, opt for a stain or even just some chapstick!
4. Skip the Dark Hues
Just because it is winter, doesn't mean that you have to dress all in dark – or do your makeup in dark colors! Ladies, this season, you need to skip all of the dark hues. Instead, opt for something that is lighter, something that is a little more colorful and will make you pop!
5. Two Coats of Mascara
Mascara is extremely in this winter ! This winter makeup trick is all about adding in at least two coats of mascara. Be careful though, you don't want to get any spider lashes, so instead of letting it dry, just keep adding mascara until your lashes are plump and long!
6. Pinky/Peach Blush
Want to know what blushes are in this season? This winter makeup trick is all about the pinks and the peaches! Of course, blush colors depend on exactly what your skin tone is, but don't go with anything too dark. Instead go with coral or even something with a tiny bit of orange base!
You'd never believe it, right? Pastels in for the winter? It's true! The light blues, light pinks and even light yellows and oranges are all in for the winter! Whether you are trying to make your eyes pop or you are trying to ensure that your cheeks stand out, go with some pastel colors!
8. Waterproof Liner
Finally, to beat out the snow and rain, make sure that you are using eyeliner – waterproof eyeliner, that is! For me, I use a liquid liner (Chanel of course!) and it works wonders! No matter what the weather is doing outside, I know that my liner will stay put because it's waterproof.
So girls, there you have it! All of my top winter makeup tricks that really do work! What other winter makeup tricks do you ladies have to share? Any I haven't mentioned?
