In these cold, harsh winter months it can be hard to keep your skin fresh and bright, rather than dull and a wee bit too pasty. Obviously radiance peels and bottle tan are brilliant helpers, but on days when you need a quick fix simply follow these steps and you'll be faking a snow glow in no time-
PRIME: Before popping on any other makeup make sure to use a primer that gives your skin a bit of a glow before you even get going. I'm loving the Laura Geller Spackle in 'Champagne' because it warms up the complexion and adds a touch of sparkle as well as doing the whole standard smoothing out thing.
POP: The main way snow works to beautify the complexion is by giving you those rosy, pinched 'just got in from building a snowman' cheeks. But you won't need no snowman if you add a pop of peachy pink cream blush to your apples instead. I haven't left Benefit 'Majorette' alone for over a month now...
GLIMMER: To really amp up the glimmer and glow, you need to get highlighting. Rather than going for something strong and obvious, go for a softer powder like theBalm 'Mary Lou Manizer' that you can dust over the forehead, brow bones, cheeks and nose to really wake up the face on winter mornings.
LINE: The hardest area to fake a wake up has to be the eyes, but you can help to eradicate redness and give the illusion of widening by putting a nude coloured pencil in the waterline. Both your eyes and purse will thank you if you purchase the brightening dual ended bargain that is Maybelline 'Big Eyes'.
