Let Self-tanner Warm You up

Let Self-tanner Warm You up The first thing you can do is fake a tan. Self-tanner has come a long way since it first hit the shelves. There’s no reason you have to look like you haven’t seen the sun in days even if it’s true. Apply a very light layer of self-tanner to your face after you apply it to the rest of your body. Be sure to blend it well to avoid streaking.

Discover the World of Contouring

Discover the World of Contouring Contouring is a hot trend in the makeup world right now and it’s easy to see why. The darker shades add definition to your face, making it look slimmer. The lighter shades of a contour palette are for highlighting, adding a bit off shimmer and punching up your eye makeup efforts. I got the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit for Christmas and have had so much fun playing with it. Contouring and highlighting are unique ways to give your face color.

When you accentuate your cheekbones and refine your jawline with the perfect shade, you can truly transform your appearance. It's almost like sculpting where you become the artist and your face, the canvas. Experimenting with different contour techniques can also incredibly enhance your features for any occasion. Whether aiming for a dramatic evening look or a subtle daytime glow, contouring allows for personalized beauty expression. The key is blending, so it appears seamless and natural. So grab your brush, and let your creativity take the lead!

Get a Sun-kissed Glow with Bronzer

Get a Sun-kissed Glow with Bronzer Many people think that contouring and bronzing are the same but there’s a difference. Contouring is for defining where bronzer is more for warming up your all over skin tone. Bronzer can be a bit tricky. It’s important to make sure you find a shade that doesn’t overpower your other makeup. Avoid any bronzer that goes on with an orange tone.

Bronzer is an essential part of any makeup look. It can add a natural sun-kissed glow to the face and help to warm up the complexion. When choosing a bronzer, it’s important to pick one that is the right shade for your skin tone. Avoid any bronzer that has an orange tone, as this can look unnatural. It’s also important to blend the bronzer well so that it doesn’t look too heavy or patchy. To apply bronzer, use a large powder brush and sweep it across the forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin. It can also be used to contour the face to give the illusion of higher cheekbones and a slimmer nose. Bronzer is a great way to add some color to the face and give it a natural, sun-kissed glow.

Don’t Neglect Blush

Don’t Neglect Blush Blush is one of the easiest ways to add color to your face. Most of us have some blush in our makeup bag even if we don’t use it daily. Cream blush is a great choice for the winter months. It applies easily and the finish is dewy yet natural. I love Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blush in Pink Frosting.

Blush should not be an afterthought in your makeup routine. It can instantly bring life to your cheeks and create a healthy, youthful glow. For a sun-kissed look, opt for warm shades like coral or peach which complement any skin tone. Powder blushes work well for oily skin, creating a matte finish that lasts all day. Remember to blend well to avoid harsh lines, as the key to a perfect blush application is making it look like a natural flush. If you're feeling adventurous, try a pop of color with a brighter hue for a fun, energizing look.

Switch out Your Eyeliner

Switch out Your Eyeliner This’s something we don’t often think to do but it has a big impact. Most women tend to wear brown or black eyeliner but why not mix it up? Try navy, purple or even a charcoal if you’re a little nervous. The slightest changes in eye makeup can really make your eyes pop. Be prepared for a lot of compliments when you try this!

***

Venturing beyond the typical hues can be surprisingly refreshing and it's a simple way to introduce a dash of unexpected vivacity to your look. Metallic shades like copper or silver can also offer a little sparkle for evening wear, while bold colors such as teal or emerald green can be enchanting during the day. Remember that the texture of your eyeliner can affect the outcome too—a pencil gives a softer line, while a liquid or gel can provide a more dramatic and precise look. Dare to experiment and embrace the transformative power of color on your eyes!

Go for a Bold Lip

Go for a Bold Lip Nude lips have been so popular as of late. But they don’t add a lot of color to your face which is what you’re craving in the middle of winter. Tuck your nudes back for awhile and try something a bit more colorful. My current favorite winter lipstick is NYX Extra Creamy Round Lipstick in Doll. Not only is it a lovely rosy red but it’s very affordable.

Pinch Your Cheeks

Pinch Your Cheeks Don’t you hate when you’re out and you notice you look pasty and pale? Your blush is at home so that’s out. When you’re in this spot, lightly pinch the apples of your cheeks and watch a natural flush appear. You may feel a little funny doing this but it works. This’s actually a trick women used before they had access to true blush products.

These’re some ideas for adding color to your face. What’s your favorite way to do this? I love talking makeup with you!
