The colder months tend to wreak havoc on skin because in most seasonal climates you’re exposing your face to extremes in temperatures and lower humidity. It also no longer feels as appropriate to wear bright tones on the face, so there are certain colors that need to be taken out of your makeup bag until next spring. The tips I’ve given in the past on transitioning makeup and skin care for fall and winter seasons are all still totally valid, and I’ve added to them in this live video with some product recommendations (recapped below).
You’ll get to see two quick, fall/winter lip changes, and learn the must-dos for choosing the right hues, foundation, bronzer, and powder so you look fresh and youthful, not like a dried up, ol’ leaf!

Transitioning Makeup and Skin Care for Fall and Winter
I’ve been an international makeup artist in fashion and have worked with thousands of women just like you over the past two decades, and believe me when I tell you that trends which look cool on the runway, aren’t realistic for most people’s real lives.

3 Major Take-Aways
1) Nourish and hydrate skin even more.
2) Avoid dry, matte makeup.
3) Keep the lines of your makeup soft.
