The bitter cold winter can be tough on our looks, so here are 3 tips to keep warm and look hot!
1. Make sure your hands are dry from the cold winter with your favorite pair of gloves. We personally like leather gloves; they are chic and protect hands beautifully- especially when they are lined. Remember to apply hand moisturizer a few minutes before donning a good pair. Keep it close by and reapply often.
2. Lips are always exposed to the elements so we need to avoid the dry, flaky consequences of leaving them bare. Make sure to re-apply lipstick, and use chap stick, lip gloss, or any lip balm at all other times to create a protective layer. Soft kissable lips are possible all year round if you take care of them!
3. Cold, grey dreary days are depressing, so try to occasionally head to the spa or salon. Make sure you take time to pamper yourself. Get a haircut, manicure, pedicure, back massage. Any of these are wonderful pick-me-ups, and come with the bonus of lovely lasting effects. Hang in there ladies!!
What works for a blonde may not work for a brunette… and certainly won’t for a redhead! With so many makeup products and shades out there today, how do we filter through all the eye-popping hues to find the right ones for our hair color? Ever the wiser big sister, Marie Claire magazine once again saves the day. Catering to all budgets and hair colors, this photo article not only gives you the best color advice but also a brief explanation as to why these are the right shades for you—all you redheads will learn that your makeup shouldn’t compete with your vibrant hair, brunettes will finally understand the importance of clean eyebrows, and blondes will stop overpowering their faces with too much color. So put down that shadow brush, set aside that tube of lipstick, and make sure that your makeup is working for you, gorgeous!
Although makeup is meant to enhance, it can also hide. And while Fashion Societe encourages you to preserve every unique curve and line in your face, we know that sometimes you may need to cover up a bit. The simplest tricks give you the power to brighten your tired eyes and plump your otherwise limp lips. Wield the power of makeup and you can make subtle enhancements or visual overhauls—be the best version of you or somebody totally new. There are dozens of tips to learn from but thanks to MSNBC, we’ve got five that will make you look younger instantly!

These 2 are applicable immediately with the exception of carrying eye base and a brow kit with you. Shouldn’t these things remain on throughout the day?? Come on, eye shadow base and brow makeup should be formulated to adhere to your skin all day.
What are your most important makeup tips and tricks?
Trish McEvoy: Always brighten your eyes by applying a highlighter on your upper lids. Don’t apply concealer under your eyes, apply it in shadows of the eye, spots that are darker. Always curl your lashes. Blend liner into your lipstick so it’s more natural looking, and always wear a little coverage on your skin.
What should every woman have in her makeup bag?
Trish McEvoy: [My] Eye Base Essential, eyeliner, crease shadow, brow kit, concealer, bronzer, blush, lip liner, lip color, and mascara.
