Want to learn a few tricks on how to stay gorgeous in the cold from Hollywood’s hottest stars? Read on!
Everyone who’s anyone has suddenly descended upon Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. See how stars like rising star Elizabeth Olsen still look so incredibly pretty even in freezing temperatures? Let’s discuss how you can do the same. Read on, beauty fans!
The keys to staying gorgeous in harsh winter weather are very simple:
Exfoliation – Sloughing off dead, dull skin will help generate and reveal healthy skin underneath. One of the best double-duty beauty products ever is a warming scrub that actually generates heat, like the amazing Philosophy Be Somebody Water Lily Hot Salt, Tub and Shower Scrub. For your face, a device that will help exfoliate gently is always amazing, like the Clarisonic Mia Skin Cleansing System.
Hydration – Even though moisture is flying all around you, staying hydrated is the only way to look good as the mercury drops. Go for the heaviest moisturizers you can find. Body butters like Clinique Deep Comfort Body Butter always work beautifully. For the face, I actually use night cream during the day when harsh weather strikes, like L’Oreal Skin Expertise Revitalift Complete Anti-Wrinkle & Firming Moisturizer Night Cream.
Keep it simple – Even when you see stars on the red carpet at Sundance, you’ll notice that they don’t really look like they’re wearing a lot of makeup, which works because snow + freezing cold + wet weather = melted face. Instead of using all over foundation, spot treat blemishes and troubled areas with concealer like Smashbox High Definition Concealer, then go for NARS The Multiple in Orgasm for a healthy flush to eyes and cheeks. Follow with two coats of an amazing mascara like M•A•C False Lashes Mascara, then finish the look with a gorgeous, natural lip gloss like NARS Lip Gloss in Stolen Kisses.
When it comes to fragrance, winter is the perfect time for a warm scent that makes folks want to nuzzle you. Try a gorgeous floral oriental like Alien by Thierry Mugler Eau de Toilette.
Just remember: even though it’s cold outside, that doesn’t mean that you have to look anything less than red carpet fabulous. Remember these beauty essentials and look just as gorgeous at the stars at Sundance!
Stay beautiful, BFFs!
