When we think about no makeup-makeup, our minds typically jump to sunny, summer days, wearing our lightest SPF-infused tinted moisturizerand a touch of tinted lip balm — all while embracing sweat as an all-over, glowy look. But something we ought to collectively learn is that this cool, ‘grammable makeup look is just as achievable (and necessary!) in the winter. Since our skin tends to become dry and patchy due to colder temps, amping up your daily routine is a must — and brightening ingredients and tints will make a big difference this time of year, too.

We reached out to NYC-based celebrity makeup artist Megan Lanoux to walk us through her favorite winter skin tips. Read on for her best tips on caring for your skin and enhancing your natural glow — you may end up skipping makeup entirely.

Mask Like You Mean It

“I would apply masks as much as possible and use products that make skin glow. Sometimes I even double up on the masks and layer them with Patchology FlashPatch Rejuvenating Eye & Lip Gels.”


Give Your Skin a Break

“Giving your skin a rest from makeup is always a good idea, it allows it to breathe. A lot of makeup is loaded with chemicals so it’s extremely important to let your skin rest sometimes. Focus on skincare that is full of antioxidants and organic ingredients — it’s almost as important as taking your makeup off before you go to bed.”
