Winter Make Up and Beauty Tip’s What do you wear in the Winter?
Hi this Maria MUA and CEO of The Color Box By Maria and we have a few tips for you in regards to Make up and winter the winter months. Many cosmetic companies launch autumn/winter collections full of darker shades for eye and lip makeup colors; dark grays, plums, burgundies, deep Spanish reds, and dark chocolate browns tend to be the popular colors.
The fall/winter fashion shows tend to give the direction as to what colors will be used for these seasons. Many of the products are of a matte finish which look better in the winter, however there are no rules for which colors to use on a seasonal basis. But remember you have a natural look, a daytime look, a nighttime look and even that glam bam runway look. Make sure that choose that make up look that is appropriate.
Cracked lips are the number one problem in winter. If your lips are super dry, leave the lipstick alone and use tinted lip balm. This is available in many different colors. You will get smooth, healthy-looking lips with a beautiful sheen. Make sure the balm has SPF and UVA/UVB protection. Invest in exfoliating products for your lips regularly throughout the cold months. That way you will get rid of the dry flakes on the surface of your lips.
Blush is a key item to the winter makeup. Blush gives your skin and wakes up your whole face. Use the powder formulas work better in the winter rather than the gel or cream. The color of your blush is up to you and your taste. Lay off the bronzes because they do not look great in the winter. Use that proper brush to apply your blush.
Hands and Nails
I have to admit that when you get older you tend to loose moisture in your hands. I also wash my hand frequently so this alone causes a loss of moisture. I carry lotion with me in all my handbags. My favorite lotion is from the Bath and Body Works line, Lay It On Thick and Look Ma No Hands. It is a very thick yet a little goes along way. When in doubt, sleep with cotton gloves on after applying a thick layer of hand cream to your hands. In the morning your hands and cuticles will be soft and moisturized.
With these few tips not only will you be stylish and in fashion with the best of the girls on the runway but you will be well protected for the winter.
