Really good winter makeup tricks are so hard to come by! Our industry experts have compiled winter makeup tricks that are easy to follow and that actually make sense to use in the winter. The winter time is not all about deep, dark colors and hues that you’d never be caught dead wearing in the summer time. It’s more about how you take care of your skin and how you can really bring out the beauty, even if the backdrop is all snowy white. So girls, are you ready to explore some of my makeup tricks specifically for the winter?
1. OIL-FREE MOISTURIZER FIRST
One of the most important winter makeup tricks that our industry experts do every day is put on an oil-free moisturizer. This will ensure that your skin stays beautiful and that you don’t get overly dry. The biggest thing that you’ve got to think about when the temperatures start to drop is your skin becoming dry and hard to cover. So moisturize, girls!
2. Light Foundation
When you are putting on your foundation in winter, make sure that the foundation is light, airy and that it covers. You don’t ever want something that is going to be super heavy, and while you might need some additional coverage, why not go with some lighter formula concealer? Just because it’s winter, don’t get into the heavy, liquid foundation!
3. NO HEAVY GLOSSES
What a lot of women do when the temperatures drop and the snow hits is stock up on heavy lip glosses. That isn’t the case this winter, girls! Drop the heavy and weighed down glosses and instead, opt for something that is light, opt for a stain or even just some chapstick!
4. SKIP THE DARK HUES
Just because it is winter, doesn’t mean that you have to dress all in dark – or do your makeup in dark colors! Ladies, this season, you need to skip all of the dark hues. Instead, opt for something that is lighter, something that is a little more colorful and will make you pop!
5. TWO COATS OF MASCARA
mascara is extremely in this winter ! This winter makeup trick is all about adding in at least two coats of mascara. Be careful though, you don’t want to get any spider lashes, so instead of letting it dry, just keep adding mascara until your lashes are plump and long!
6. PINKY/PEACH BLUSH
Want to know what blushes are in this season? This winter makeup trick is all about the pinks and the peaches! Of course, blush colors depend on exactly what your skin tone is, but don’t go with anything too dark. Instead go with coral or even something with a tiny bit of orange base!
If you have a fair complexion you may wonder about beauty tips for pale skin. Porcelain skin is absolutely gorgeous. With these 5 beauty tips for pale skin you can make it even more fabulous.
1. AVOID NEUTRAL LIP COLORS
If you have a light complexion it is best to avoid light lip colors. Nudes and light browns won’t do your fair skin any justice. In fact you will look more dead than alive.
2. GO FOR COLOR
Since we know neutral lip colors are out, what are some beauty tips for pale skin? Women with pale skin look best in bright lipstick. Try reds or corals. Think of Scarlett Johansson with her beautiful porcelain skin and bright ruby lips.
3. AVOID NEUTRAL EYE SHADOW
Pale skin doesn’t do well with neutral eye shadows. Creams and beige will wipe out your complexion instead of giving you dimension. Avoid them at all cost
4. DON’T SKIP BLUSH
Ever! It still confuses me why so many women think blush is not a necessity. Blush gives your face color, definition and warmth. Always apply light and add more as needed.
5. NO LIGHT CLOTHES
Unless you want to look naked from a distance, I strongly urge you not to wear whites and creams. The colors are too light and will blend in with your skin tone.

You will need:
NYX Studio Photogenic Foundation
NYX Concealer Wand
1. Apply NYX foundation to your cheeks, forehead, and chin using a foundation brush, sponge, or clean fingertips. Blend the foundation all the way to your natural hairline with long, light strokes.
2. Continue blending over the jawline and onto your neck to achieve a natural, seamless look. Check your face and neck in natural light to make sure the foundation is completely blended in all areas.
3. If under-eye circles or red spots remain, do not add more foundation; it can look heavy and cakey. Instead, try NYX concealer wand.
Tip: Choose the shade of your foundation carefully. When testing out shades, pick one that matches the tone of your jawline exactly. It helps to use a mirror outdoors to see how shades look in natural light.
Tip: Begin by applying a small amount of foundation then increase amount to achieve the degree of coverage that suits your skin.
Tip: For daytime, mix your foundation with a light SPF moisturizer before applying for a smoother, more sheer application.
