Cold Weather

How to maintain your glow while making the most of cold, harsh weather conditions? Whether you’ll be swishing down Aspen Mountain or lounging in the lodge, we’ve got expert tips from Heather Baker, one of the Beauty Stylists at our Park Meadows store in Lone Tree, Colorado.

It’s that time of year when we switch scenes from high-glamour holiday to the effortless radiance of après-ski! If you want to look (and feel) your best when you hit the slopes, here are a few tips for a healthy, radiant look.

1. Protect & Prep: First things first…protect yourself with CHANEL UV ESSENTIEL SPF 50. Next, prep your skin for foundation with Laura Mercier Hydrating Primer (this will not only help your makeup last all day but will also keep your skin hydrated in the dry mountain air).

Looking for a lightweight and waterproof foundation? Look no more: M•AC Face and Body Foundation is the answer. I love to apply this with a MAC 187 Brush.

2. Rosy Cheeks & Lips: To give your cheeks a flushed look, I recommend NARS ‘The Multiple’ Stick in ‘Orgasm’–you can use this awesome product on the cheeks, lips and eyes!

For cute and hydrated lips, apply Clinique Chubby Stick Intense in your favorite shade, then top with Jo Malone Vitamin E Lip Conditioner to stay smooth and moisturized!

 3. Eyes with a Touch of Shimmer: Trish McEvoy Eye Base in ‘Demure’ is perfect for a quick, easy eye. Sweep some of this primer (it has just a touch of glitter) all over the lid for a natural, effortless look.

Eyeliner is optional on the mountain, but if you want your eyes to stand out, try the stila ‘stay all day’ waterproof liquid eyeliner in dark brown for a more natural look.

Lastly, make your lashes long and beautiful with Dior ‘Diorshow New Look’ Mascara, then finish off with the Anastasia Waterproof Topcoat–it will make sure all that melting powder doesn’t give you raccoon eyes.

Now, my ski-bunny friends, you are ready to hit the slopes!
