Keeping some color in your face during the cold winter months can be tricky. Many automatically think bronzer is the only way to warm up a pale or ashy face during the colder months. The problem is, bronzer doesn’t always work for everyone. Sometimes it’s too noticeable on very fair skin, creating a slightly orange look — not cute! Check out some tips on how to perk up a pale complexion — without getting the not-so-cute tangerine effect!
When it comes to brightening up your winter face, tinted moisturizer is the real winner. Look for one that’s extra light and comes in a few different shades, like Lancôme Imanance Tinted Day Creme, so you can make sure it blends in with your fair skin tone. Smoothing on just a small amount will not only add a touch of color, but also improve the skin’s texture.
After the moisturizer, dust some blush on your cheeks to give your face a healthy, flushed look. Blush blends in seamlessly on top of moisturizer, making for natural and non-cakey color. Try swiping on a light pink blush (we like NYX Cosmetics Powder Blush in Angel), and then rub it in gently with your fingers. The color will melt right into your skin, creating a rosy flush that looks 100 percent windblown.
