For those of us who are “lucky” enough to experience every season, switching up your skincare routine for cold weather is an obvious must. But, don’t forget to winterize your makeup routine too! It only takes a few simple product and brush swaps to make the switch.

Here are 4 of our favorite winter brush pairings:

  1. Powder foundations can sit on top of dry winter skin, so buff a hydrating formula like Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich Foundation SPF 15 into your skin with your expert face brush for a supple look.
  2. If the lack of sun leaves your complexion a little sallow, skip the strong cheek contour and brighten up with a splash of pink blush swirled over the apples of your cheeks using the 300 tapered blush. Try MAC Powder Blush in Pink Swoon.
  3. Shimmery powders radiate on dewy skin, but looks flat and dusty on dehydrated skin. Choose an illuminating cream like IT Cosmetics Hello Light Anti-Again Cream Radiance Illuminator and run it over the tops of cheeks with your angled highlighter brush for a glowing effect.
  4. Super shiny or glittery glosses tend to dry out your lips, so choose a creamy lipstick formula to keep lips soft. Craving some holiday sparkle? Add a dab on top with your retractable lip brush.  Try Hourglass Femme Roughe Velvet Créme Lipstick.
