Hydrating Makeup Routine for Winter

My skin is not its best self in the winter. Between the weather, the heat, and the fact that I should really remember to drink more water, I woke up on this cold January morning with very, very dry skin. (Not the New Year New Me look I was aiming for.)

Thankfully, my makeup bag has the skin-nourishing jane iredale formulas needed to revive my dull winter complexion so that I can leave my house looking glowy even if I did not wake up that way.

Prep with Hydrating Skincare

I start by prepping my face with BeautyPrep™ Hyaluronic Serum followed by BeautyPrep™ Face Moisturizer to plump my skin and give it a much-needed boost of hydration. (I cannot recommend the Hyaluronic Serum highly enough – it saves my skin in the winter.)

The Skincare Makeup System

Next, I use Smooth Affair® Brightening Face Primer to blur my pores and help my makeup last all day.

I am super pale and sunburn easily so foundation with SPF is a must year-round. My favorite SPF foundation is PurePressed® Base because it has the buildable coverage I like but still lets my skin breathe. 

I tend to apply most makeup with my fingers, but I use The Handi™ Brush for PurePressed® Base. (Pro tip from the jane iredale Educators: apply PurePressed® Base with The Handi™ Brush using downward strokes to help the minerals lay flat against your skin.)

That’s followed up with a quick spritz of POMMISST™ Hydration Spray to set the minerals.


A lot of bronzers can appear orange on my skin tone but the Glow Time™ Bronzer Stick in Sizzle blends in nicely, providing a subtle contoured look.

I add Glow Time® Blush Stick in Balmy to the apples of my cheeks for a flush of color and dust the golden highlighter shade from Moonglow Bronzer Refill across the top of my cheekbones.


PureBrow® Brow Gel

After a quick application of PureBrow® Brow Gel in Clear to tame my eyebrows, I sweep the golden highlighter shade from Moonglow Bronzer Refill onto my eyelids – it’s a great multitasker. For a bolder eye look, I add in a little Mystikol® in Dark Topaz.

PureLash® Lengthening Mascara in Jet Black is my go-to mascara as it lengthens my lashes without causing irritation when I’m wearing contacts.


Just Kissed® Lip & Cheek Stain

To finish off the look, I swipe on Forever Peach Just Kissed® Lip & Cheek Stain, which successfully moisturizes my chapped winter lips and provides a subtle red tint (my favorite). One of the many things I love about the Just Kissed line is that each formula adjusts to your skin’s chemistry, creating a shade that’s unique to you.
