Windswept Beauty: A Guide to Looking Fresh and Flawless This Winter
When it comes to beauty for the everyday girl, Team MDC has you covered in spades. But even the most bona fide beauty experts can use a little inspiration straight from the runway. Our friends at Beautystreams specialize in breaking down the latest trends in high fashion so that you can make the look work for you, catwalk optional.
Nature beckons us to shake off the languor of summer and embrace the upcoming chills of colder weather. Brisk, fresh air is the ultimate beautifier, bringing a healthy glow to any complexion and windswept texture to the hair. Capturing the essence of the colder months of fall and winter, this look exudes a natural, effortless appeal.
And who better than Tommy Hilfiger to serve as the trail guide on this path into The Great Outdoors? His fall 2014 collection feels like a walk in the woods; while draped in chunky knits, cold front hats and puffy parkas for stylish protection against the elements. The models have an après-sport flush upon their cheeks, discreet shadow and glossy nude lips for a casual — yet feminine — approach.
Translucent foundation allows for a natural complexion to shine through (flaunt those freckles!) with just a touch of shimmer and a light application of mascara on the upper lashes. Be generous with blush on the apples of the cheeks to accentuate the sporty flush allure. Go for messy, windswept hair — such as an uneven side part, a hastily done ponytail, or a casual updo with stray strands teasing the face. This outdoor inspired look is ideal for city girls exploring the urban wilderness.
Get the Look: MDC Tells You How! Keep the palette fresh and natural with one major component to consider — blush, blush and then some more blush! Successfully achieve this rosy appearance by choosing the right shade to give your cheeks a natural flush. The whole point here is to keep it looking like the elements primped and painted your face, not your favorite brushes and handy beauty tools. Shhh, it’s our little secret!
