That flawlessly luminous glow starts at your skincare routine. Our beauty editor shares her secret to achieve glowing skin in the winter time.
1. Moisturiser is a must
Even the most expensive make-up won’t its best work on a canvas that isn’t properly prepped. Ensure your skin is hydrated with a good moisturiser so that what you put on top sits perfectly and goes on evenly.
2. Go cream
Cream products are your best friend. They nourish the skin while imparting soft romantic colour to the face, lips and eyes. Steer clear of matte products as they can make dry skin appear dull and flaky.
3. Be bold
In a rush? Be bold and wear a statement lip. It’s the quickest and easiest way to create a polished look with minimal effort. If you usually go for bright coral in summer, try a deep burgundy in winter.
4. Add shimmer
Skin can dry out majorly in winter, so choose a creamy foundation or primer that gives a radiant glow, or apply a cream or liquid highlighter to the tops of cheekbones after your base.
5. Fake the glow
Cheat your way to a glowing finish by applying a light mist of self-tanning face spray before bed, ideal if you have a mid-winter soirée to attend. You’ll wake up with a subtle luminosity without the usual self-tan admin.
6. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Nourish parched skin and breathe life back into your complexion with a hydrating mist. Heaters and low-humidity weather can sap skin of its glow, but a hydrating mist is an easy way to impart essential, refreshing moisture
