Winter Makeup Tips

With winter comes with countless things you have to worry about, like, cold weather, icy roads (horrible for heels) and the lists goes on. The last thing you want to add on top of all of that is bad makeup, but fear not, if you follow the easy beauty tips below, you might not have to!


With the harsh wind-chill and even harsher snowfall, using a primer is the most important step to not only protect your makeup but also add extra moisture to protect your skin from dryness.

Eye shadow

Despite freezing in -100 degree weather, you can still project the illusion of warmth with your makeup look. For winter days stick to the warmer tones in your eye shadow palettes, and you can even try branching out to a daytime smoky eye look.

It’s not a winter look until you’re sporting a highlight as bright as snow. For that extra glow, apply your favourite highlighter before and after your foundation.

Lip Stick

Would it be winter if chapped lips were not one of your worst concerns? Instead of sticking to a clear balm, try elevating the look with a moisturizing lipstick, and keep it subtle with a nude pink. If you’re feeling daring, try going for a bolder look with a dark red shade.
