Winter beauty secrets
Going between indoor heating and arctic temperatures really takes a toll on your skin, often leaving it dry, tight, and chapped. So, during the winter months, it's especially important to opt for your most lightweight and hydrating products.
Start your makeup routine by tapping a hydrating serum into your skin. Avoid foundation, which can emphasize dry areas and flakiness, and choose a BB cream instead. This miracle product acts as complexion perfector, moisturizer, primer, and SPF all in one.
When it comes to winter makeup looks, it's best to draw attention to the eyes rather than the lips- lipstick is drying and right now your pout needs all the hydration it can get!
Start by applying a shimmery champagne eyeshadow on the eyelid and inner corners of your eyes to attract light, giving you a wide-awake look. Define your eyes by tightlining the upper lashline with a black liquid liner, before lining the bottom lash lines with a charcoal eyeliner and gently smudging it. Finish with two coats of volumizing mascara.
Give your lips a slick of ultra-hydrating balm and you're all set!
