5 Winter Make-up Tips!

As tans fade and coats get thicker, our make-up changes too. Here are my top five for you to try - say hello to the winter you!

Bold Lips!
Summer is for soft pinks, but winter is time to get serious. Berry colours work really well for strong lips, and deep rouges work especially if you have darker skin. Careful not to go to dark though, or you could end up looking washed out and pale.
The cold air is so much drier than the hot summer, and walking out of a hot room and into the cold outside a lot can really damage your skin. It will dry and flake, make up won't adhere as well and your skin will get oilier - spots on the rise!
Bronze and Gold!
Smokey eyes are considered the ultimate party look - but charcoal eye shadow is just too dark for winter. Try creating the same effect with a shimmer bronze, or gold works well for paler skin. Leave out the black Kohl and replace with a glitter liner for fantastic eyes.
Naturally Flushed Cheeks!
If you want to add a bit of colour to your pale wintry face, try adding a bit of natural blusher in jewel tones. Place either from the apples of your cheeks (the bit that wrinkles high on your cheekbones when you grin) and sweep up towards your temples, or brush into the hollows of your cheeks for a naturally flushed look.
Clear skin!
Either buy a new foundation for winter or don't wear one at all - the same summer shade makes you look like you applied fake tan: only to your face!
You will need a paler colour as your tan fades to save yourself from looking like a traffic light, or just stick to concealer and natural skin. Much less fuss!

I would like to thank a reader for suggesting the idea for a winter make up tips post, I really do love all of your suggestions, and if you have anything you would like me to review, post or research, let me know! Comment on the You! page and I will see what I can do!
