It’s winter, and no matter if you are hitting the slopes, or curling up to the fire, it’s important to look your best. Looking for tips to fight winter beauty woes and achieve the perfect winter look? Why not get advice from the experts!?
Sisters Sam and Nic Chapman are the stars of the UK’s No. 1 YouTube beauty channel, Pixiwoo, and the faces behind top makeup brush brand, Real Techniques. They offer tips, tutorials and advice to women around the world on how to achieve the best and hottest looks. Here is some advice they offer in terms of winter makeup:
- Use a hydrating primer before applying your foundation. Too Faced Primed and Poreless Face Primer works great on dry, dehydrated skin and brightens skin for a fresher and younger looking glow.
- Keep your foundation dewy. Benefit Cosmetics Hello Flawless Oxygen WOW protects skin against environmental stresses, and boosts cellular respiration for a flawless complexion. To keep skin looking great, remember to always use a brush or sponge to apply, and never your fingers. The oils from your fingers can transfer to your skin, resulting in blemishes. Try using the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge for an even application.
- Polish off the look with a translucent powder that keeps your look fresh without looking cakey using the Real Techniques retractable kabuki brush. Add a sunkissed glow with a sweep of bronzer using the Real Techniques retractable bronzer brush.This winter wedding tutorial is full of ideas that you can use even for the every day.
- Get a natural glow. Using a copper or gold eye shadow to create a natural smokey eye can be a great look in the winter. It is natural, while still adding a hint of drama to the eyes. Use an eyeshadow like the Ulta Beauty Aztec Gold Eyeshadow. This shadow sweeps on great using the Real Techniques shading brush.
