Bronzer in the winter?

Bronze and Silver Bracelet by Donatella Linari

Just because its winter doesn’t mean you need to looked washed out. Being that the right colored foundation takes away your natural color, you should put a little of the right color back in. By using a light bronzer to contour your face you’ll never feel too pale. Apply the bronzer from the  apple of your cheek back along your cheek bones and a little down your forehead, nose , and chin. You can then apply your blush on the apples of your cheeks, where you pinch them. Tanya Apter

Winter Make Up

Just as our wardrobes and color palettes change with the seasons, so does our skin.  Change up your skincare regime for winter.  The cold and heat are very drying.  No matter what products you use ( oil free, anti-aging, etc.), incorporate hydrating products as well.  Don’t be afraid to mix it up.  You can use a hydrating serum under an anti-aging day cream.  If your concern is breaking out, you can use hydrating products during the day under your makeup and more intense products while you’re sleeping and your skin can repair itself.  Also, use a gentle exfoliator at least once a week.  The idea is to remove the dry surface layer of the skin so all of your great skincare can nourish that new surface.
