Your Winter Glow Up Guide

Want to get your winter glow up on? Here are skincare and makeup tips to help you look and feel your best—plus a few gift ideas for your besties!

Your Winter Glow Up Guide

Ready to seize the season? With fall and winter coming, there are so many great winter makeup looks you can do! And let’s not forget about winter makeup gifts for the holidays. We’ve got the inspiration you need to get your glow up on—plus some treats for your besties, too.

1. Soothe winter skin

Lots of us get dry skin in the winter, which means it’s time for a more intensive skincare routine. Start your morning with moisturizing serums beneath your day cream. For extra-dry skin, try an emolliating night oil that you can use as a mask while you sleep. During the day, prevent chapped lips with SPF lip gloss. 

Whatever your holy grails, see if you can find them in travel sizes and put together baskets of your favorites as gifts.

2. Mask up (in a good way!)

This one is part glow up and part gift. Cooler, drier winter is also prime time to snuggle up to a spa day with a hydrating mask. Look for sheet masks, clay masks, or peel-off masks featuring hyaluronic acid to give your skin the moisture boost it needs. When you find your favorite product, pick up a few extras. They make great stocking stuffers!

3. 'Tis the season for spice!

Looking for a new scent? This time of year, it’s all about spices—cinnamon, pumpkin spice, apple spice, nutmeg, you name it! Savor the season with scented body lotions, matching body sprays and hair mists.

4. Find your shade

With temperatures cooling and everyone spending more time indoors, you might need to find a new foundation shade. Even if you wear a lot of sunscreen, sun exposure usually darkens your skin a shade or two. As winter approaches, your skin lightens a little. If you’d rather not buy a new bottle, get a foundation mixer in white and use it sparingly to get an exact match.

5. Bestow a golden glow

Love the bronzy look of summer? Winter makeup doesn’t mean you have to skip it. Add bronzer and highlighter to keep that golden glow. Sweep the bronzer around the perimeter of your face and over your cheekbones to create a warm, inviting look. Use highlighter on the high points—cheekbones, nose, and cupid’s bow—for a fresh-from-the-breeze face.

Want to give the gift of summer? Bronzing and highlighter palettes are winter makeup gifts that keep giving!

6. Everyone needs shimmer shadows

Want to make that smoky eye really pop? Then you need a go-to shimmer shadow palette. Swap out light lid shades for shimmers in gold, mauve, or another color for a party-ready look. Don’t forget to add a bright, luminous highlight at the inner corner of each eye.
