Au Natural Winter Beauty Look
This is my go to (quick and low maintenance might I add) winter beauty look. It creates that fresh après ski glow - sans the crazy icicles in the hair and goggle marks on your forehead. So even if you don't make it out onto the slopes, no one has to know...
- First I put on a face oil or moisturizer to lock in moisture and rejuvenate my skin from the harsh dry elements. If my skin isn't super dry I'll use a simple clean moisturizer for sensitive skin like Accure. But if I feel like I need heavy hydration (most winter days) I stick with a face oil - either Kora Organics Noni Glow oil or a pure rosehip oil (any will do, just look for one that says 100% pure organic cold pressed). Make sure you are also drinking lots of water to keep yourself and your skin hydrated.
- Then I'll apply Baeo bare kiss lip balm to moisturize my lips (made with essential oils, and is safe to use on baby and children so you know it has to be pure and good for you!)
- A moisturizing SPF tinted cc cream provides subtle coverage that still lets your natural skin and beauty marks or freckles shine through. I use COOLA Organic SPF 30 Unscented matte tint. This will protect your face from the deceivingly strong winter rays.
- Rosy cheeks & lips - A good cream blush to create that rosy fresh winter look - I also find it makes the eyes pop. I rotate between using Herbivore Coco Rose Lip Tint, in Coral or Olio E Osso, in French Melon. I like to apply lightly on my upper cheek bones with a sponge or my fingers. Then I'll apply it on my lips.
- If you want to add a more glossy finish to this super natural look I like to apply Glossier highlighter on my brow bones, on the tops of my cheek bones, and in the cupids bow of my lips.
- I don't like to use much on my eyes. At most, I'll curl my lashes and use a brow brush to make them stand out. If I do wear mascara Ill lightly apply Juice beauty photo-pigments ultra natural mascara.
The key to this look is to minimally accentuate your own unique features, keep the makeup application super light so that your skin shines through, and add a subtle pop of color on your cheeks and lips.
