Winter is a time to break out boots, sweaters, and hats! It is also a time to change up your daytime makeup routine. Check out these awesome Winter Daytime Makeup Tips!

Winter Daytime Makeup Tips I first realized that it was time for a trip to the drug store when my foundation started being too dark for face. My husband even mentioned that the color was too dark. Even though, I do not take the sun, I still get more sun in the summer than I do in the winter. I decided to try a new foundation after doing a little research on some beauty blogs and beauty forums. The Rimmel Match Perfection in Ivory and the Rimmel London Stay Matte Long Lasting Powder in Transparent are top notch. I want my entire look to be matte and not glittery. Shimmery skin and blush is for spring and summer. The transparent long lasting powder allows you to show off your natural beauty.

Bronzer & Blush

Bronzer and blush are a must for winter as this is when you are at your palest. I went with Loreal Paris True Match Blush in Barely Blushing and NYX Matte Bronzer in Medium.

Eyebrows & Mascara

Eyebrows and Mascara are the most important part of my makeup routine. I bought an inexpensive brow pencil with a little brush at the end by Jordana in Medium Brown and Cover Girl Clear Mascara (I got this one half off!)  Always go lighter than your hair color for day time. For years. I made the mistake of buying dark brown because my hair is dark brown and never used the pencils because it was too dark for me. Lighter colors look more natural. Use the pencil to fill in the brows pressing lightly and avoiding the first millimeter of brow closest to your nose. After you are done filling in your brows, use the clear mascara to set the brow in place.

How to do brows, use bombshell cover girl mascara and burt's bee tinted lip balm for a winter look

My mascara is the new Cover Girl Bombshell Volume by Lashblast in very black. It is sooo awesome! It was also on sale for buy 1 get 1 half off. Love a deal! The Bombshell double sided. Use side 1 first to volumize and side 2 second intensify and seal in for an intense dark all day finish.

Winter Day Time Makeup Tips

I chose a moisturizing tinted lip balm by Burt’s Bees in Hibiscus. I love the way it feels and it keeps you from getting chapped lips while adding some fabulous color to your lips.
