Just when you thought it couldn’t get any colder, it did. But with this simple three-steps-to-toasty routine for medium skin tones, you’ll be warmed up in no time!
1). Start by applying your regular primer, foundation and concealer. This will create the perfect canvas for your glowing cheeks. Next, heat things up with a bronzer. For our medium-toned model, Kristen, we chose Youngblood Mineral Radiance in the shade Riviera. Grab a fluffy brush, pick up some powder, and be sure to tap off any excess before sweeping it across your cheekbones. You’ll also want to add a little to your hairline and across your jaw for overall luminosity.
2). Pretty pink cheeks are a 2016 staple, so of course blush is a must in our warm winter skin routine. Adding a little to just the apples of your cheeks will enhance your bronzer and soften the look. Youngblood Pressed Mineral Blush in Zin is a mauve-y rose shade that looks flawless on medium skin tones. Just be sure not to pick up too much on your brush at once. These blushes have major color payoff!
3). Now that your cheeks are looking rosy, it’s time to bring some light to your best features. Adding small dots of a creamy highlighter, like glo minerals GloBrightening Highlight Concealer in Medium, to the area just above your cheekbones and eyebrows and then patting them to blend will help lift and energize your face. No warm look should leave home without it.
4). Now that your glow is in place, you’re almost ready to trot out your new warmed up makeup. But there’s one last step—your lips! They shouldn’t compete with your cheeks. A glossy lip color in a shade slightly darker than your natural lips is the way to go. Kristen is using Youngblood Lipgloss in Fantasy.
Simple as that! You’re set to sizzle.
