This goes for everything: lips, face, body. I shared a few products I love in my monthly favourites, including the Lush Lip Scrub and Vasanti Brighten Up. Winter can leave my skin feeling dull, so it's nice to start with a clean slate. It helps keep my make-up lasting longer, even in the ice & harsh winds.
After all that exfoliating, you can't forget to moisturize. For me, I especially concentrate on my under eyes, lips, and hands. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream is the perfect multi-tasking super hydrator. I also try to make time for a few deep conditioning hair treatments.
For winter, I like to have a bold lip. After tips 1 and 2, of course, I think it wakes up my whole face and makes me look less dull. It also gives the chill another barrier to have to go through to get to my lips. I love mauve shades like this Manna Kadar Lip Stain in All of Me or a plummy burgundy. A little blush is also a go-to, I don't go too heavy as my cheeks will definitely gain their own flush from the cold.
Winged liner and lots of lashes are all year rounds for me. One method of definition that has been new to me is bumping up my brows. Finally, don't forgo the bronzer just because it's winter. I always have a bit of contouring going on. I love the Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Bronzer since it's matte-and smells like hot cocoa.
Sometimes the exfoliating and hydrating just isn't enough. That's when I fake it a bit more with some highlighting. The Hourglass Ambient Lightening palette is perfect for this. Incandescent Light is great for those traditional highlighting areas, and Dim Light I use basically everywhere to have a natural glow.
So maybe these tips don't particularly apply to winter. I pretty much have the same look going on year-round. But maybe some of the mentioned products caught your attention.
