How To Get A Dewy Natural Makeup Look in Winter

Winter in New England is tough on my skin. Between stuffy indoor heat and harsh weather, it can leave my skin feeling dull, irritated and dry. There’s nothing worse than putting on makeup and it flakes off or looks cakey because my skin is so dry. There are a few great Clean at Sephora products that have been amazing for helping my skin look and feel hydrated and dewy all winter. 

Dewy, natural makeup starts with hydrated skin and I’ve been enjoying the new Farmacy 10% Niacinamide Night Mask.  It helps strengthen skin’s moisture barrier with 10% niacinamide, and restores hydration overnight. I love how it melts into skin with a light gel consistency. It doesn’t leave a mess on my pillow and I wake up with a hydrated, even-looking complexion in the morning. You only need a little bit of this product to wake up with skin that looks and feels refreshed, and pores that appear smaller. I used it on a wind/sunburn after a long day on the mountain last week and it made a huge difference the next day. The redness and irritation was gone.

I got this Tower28 Beauty SOS Save.Our.Skin Daily Rescue Facial Spray last spring and I absolutely love it. I use it before and after I apply my makeup and throughout the day. I keep one on my desk for a spritz throughout the work day to keep my skin hydrated. I love that it’s fragrance free and reduces redness and irritation. It’s one of my favorite treatments after a day on the mountain if my skin is a little wind-burned. 

I like to keep my makeup routine simple and natural looking. I just recently discovered this ROSE INC Blush Divine Clean Dewy Cream Blush. I love how creamy it is and that it’s infused with squalane and ceramides which help skin appear more hydrated. It’s buildable and natural (wearing shade Azalea above) and you can wear it as a lip color too! I also really like that you can buy refills to cut down on waste. I usually apply with my fingers but it blends really well with a brush. It’s super pigmented so you only need 2-3 dots of product for a gorgeous flush of color.

For everyday makeup I wear Saie Glowy Super Gel Lightweight Dewy Highlighter, Saie Sunvisor Moisturizing Sunscreen SPF 35, Ilia Limitless Lengthening Mascara, and MERIT Shade Slick Tinted Lip Oil in Bel Air. I’m all about quick and easy with products that make my skin look and feel good. Everything I’m wearing above is linked below!
