January, post Christmas indulgence is always a time when we need to try and get our skin back into good condition.Cold air means chapped lips and cracked skin which is a huge no no! One very important thing to remember during the chilly months is to keep your body hydrated and drink lots of water to keep your lips fresh and your skin smooth! You also want to change your make up products to blend in with the fall and winter seasons.

Hide It!

A yellow base primer or concealer can add an instant glow to the skin & create a lightening effect, and help to erase the signs of fatigue. How can you not love that? MUA’s Yellow Pro-Base Prime & Conceal cream helps to soften and balance out pink tones, and it’s also great to use for neutralising pink-toned blemishes and fading out under-eye circles.

Big Brows Do Wonders

A larger brow look gives a polished finish, whereas a skinny brow has an ageing effect on the features. Start by brushing brows into place. Then take the MUA Pro-Brow brush, dip it into the pressed powder and use small, light strokes to gradually build a thicker-looking brow.

Subtle Eyes

Use an eyeliner in chestnut brown or golden cooper for a younger, brighter illusion. If you want to wear eyeshadow for night time, forget bold, trendy shades. For subtle eyes, choose an eyeshadow that is two shades darker than your skin tone, using a matte or satin textured shadow from the Hall of Fame Eye Shadow Palette. Blend it through the crease of your eye for added definition.
