make up colours that mix well.

Ever sit there staring at your make up colours thinking which colour do I chose and wondering which colours would suit each other if put together. If you have a colour palette like this one below, you probably find yourself in a similar situation.

look after your skin in winter

I know we're already half way through winter so i'm a little late but here is some tips on looking after your skin in the colder months. We all know that our skin isn’t as fantastic in the winter as it is in the summer, and sometimes we think we don’t need to worry so much, but if you look after your skin through winter than your skin will look and feel better in the summer months.

You shouldn’t be slacking off with sunscreen during winter, still applying it to your face and other exposed areas. But especially don't slack off if you're hitting the slopes, rays reflect off the snow and are double the strength. Thankfully we are more clothed in winter so not so much needs to apply. Still, once you’ve hit winter, buy a new sunscreen so that’s its fresh.
Taking too hot of a shower in winter is actually dehydrated your body by up to four cups of water, this isn't healthy for your skin. Even though we all love hot showers, just suck it up and turn it down just for the benefit of your skin throughout the colder months. And remember to moisture after each shower to keep the moisture in your skin.
