A summary of Lisa Eldridge’s quick and easy makeup tips in the video

  1. Don’t be afraid to use a foundation one shade darker than normal provided you use a really lightweight formula and buff it very well into your skin.
  2. Add a dewy pink or rosy gold toned highlighter on your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose and just above the cupids bow.
  3. Choose a tan blush shade to add warmth to the face. Avoid heavy orangey or pink tones in winter.
  4. A creamy concealer is best to offset winter skin dryness. Lightly brush it under the eyes and to cover redness around the nose.
  5. Layer a little lip balm on top of your lipstick and blend for the perfect stained and dewy lip look.
