A Guide to Wearing Matte During the Holidays

Although typically associated with shimmer and glimmer, winter is also a great time to break out your most adventurous matte hues. Richly saturated lips and deeply colorful eyelids set the stage for a beautiful cold-weather look that’s appropriate for everything from holiday season parties to The Nutcracker showings at your local theatre. Thinking of experimenting with matte for the first time? Here are some important tips to keep in mind.

Make a Statement With Your Eyes

It’s usually the aforementioned shimmery shadows that make the boldest statement. But when applied properly, even matte eye makeup can transform your look into one that is stunning and seductive. Think in terms of your agenda. If you’re headed out, it’s more than appropriate to rock a deep, smoky eye and complement the look with bold eyelashes. Start by priming your lids with bareMinerals Gen Nude Eyeshadow Primer . Smooth the cream on and watch it transform into a matte powder before your eyes.

Then it’s time to dip into your favorite colors from the Jane Iredale Eye Shadow Kit  in Naturally Matte. Dust the medium shade onto your lids, using a light hand so that you can build color gradually. Then add some dimension by working the darkest color into the crease. Extend that color to the inner third of your eye and blend it just slightly upward. Apply the lightest shade to your brow bone for an eye-popping look. Don’t forget to add a few generous coats of mascara!

Give Your Skin a Little Boost

The right matte products can make a world of difference in how your complexion looks. The key is to select formulas that are designed specifically for your skin type. If you have dry tendencies, for example, seek out items that are enriched with hydrating ingredients to bring out the best in your complexion. The Revision Skincare Intellishade Matte SPF 45 is an excellent starting point. The moisturizing product dries down to a flattering matte finish and leaves just a hint of color on the skin.

If you don’t want to bother with foundation or like using a setting product as a final touch, consider Glo Minerals Loose Matte Finishing Powder . The translucent product is easy to dust on with a fluffy brush, and is expertly formulated to combat oily skin and prevent pesky shine from breaking through in the middle of the day. The best part is how flawless your skin will look after application—and for hours after.

Add a Pop to Your Lips

If the holidays aren’t the right time to add a dash of crimson to your lips, then there will never be a right time. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous, add a matte version of the color to your repertoire. The hues provided in the bareMinerals Go Bold or Go Bare Trio Matte Lip Kit  are especially fitting for this time of year. You’ll have your choice of a pale mauve-pink that’s ideal for the work day, a bold violet to punctuate your night-out looks, and a seductive oxblood red that breaks all notions of timidity and gives you a perfect excuse to finally rock red lips before the year ends.

Countdown to Holiday: 5 Steps to Fabulously Festive Skin

It may be the most wonderful time of the year for your social agenda, but your skin has other ideas. If the season’s low temperatures and brutal winds are wreaking their very special brand of havoc on your skin, you may find yourself wondering if there’s any possible way to restore your complexion in time for all of those events on the calendar. In a word, yes! We’ve rounded up five key products that you need in order to reverse the irritation, protect your skin, and prevent future issues. If you start now, your skin will be ready right on time. Here, our skin-loving picks for the season.

Cleanse Right

If you haven’t yet swapped cleansers for the season, make it a priority to switch from your standard to something more emolliating. Decleor Aroma Cleanse Micellear Oil ($20.99) is a dream for skin that’s disturbed by winter’s chill. Smooth and silky to the touch, it melts on contact and instantly removes even the most stubborn makeup. Watch as it transforms into a milky substance that gently and effectively gets rid of the gunk and leaves skin softer and healthier.

 

Treat Yourself

Just like you savor a steaming mug of cocoa on a chilly evening, your skin begs for a little comfort every now and then, too. GLAMGLOW has the solution with its ThirstyMud Hydrating Treatment ($50.99). True to its name, this elegant mask drenches your skin with essential moisture. It’s free of potential irritants, including sulfates and parabens, and is ideal for all types of skin. That’s a huge bonus for those who are typically sensitive. Use it at least twice a week to achieve a brighter visage that’s softer to the touch.

 

Glow Nightly

Your skin does most of its work overnight when you’re resting. That’s good news for the bevy of PM-friendly products that are formulated to rescue upset skin, like Dr. Brandt Glow Overnight Resurfacing Serum ($50.99). It’s infused with a time-release form of retinol that helps increase cell turnover. The end result: brighter, healthier, more luminous skin. Over time, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is diminished, dryness is reduced, and irritation is calmed.

 

Heal Dryness

Ultra-dry skin requires far more than a basic face cream. Karin Herzog’s Vita-A-Kombi Facial Oil ($38.99) is just the answer that most dehydrated skin types need in the face of brisk winds and low temperatures. If your skin has a tendency to feel irritated on top of being simply dry, this oil does a beautiful job of nourishing and gently coercing your complexion back to a healthier state. Apply it at night for best results; you’ll awaken with a calmer face—and hopefully a brighter smile when you catch sight of that glowing complexion.

 

Get Buttery

If you prefer creams to oils, the bareMinerals Butter Drench Restorative Rich Cream ($35.99) is a superb choice that feels decadent to the touch. With a thick, whipped consistency, this pampering moisturizer is infused with shea butter, amino acids, and peptides to both soften skin and reduce those pesky fine lines and wrinkles. Hints of bergamot and eucalyptus add a scent that is lively, yet not so bold that it’s cloying. The end effect is subtly pleasant and destined to treat your skin with the nourishment it so desperately needs in cold weather.
