How to Get Glowing Skin This Winter

Thanks to plummeting temperatures, unruly wind and blasting air-conditioning, winter isn’t excactly synonymous with radiant, glowing skin. The often harsh weather and other environmental factors can, unfortunately, leave once-radiant skin lacklustre and dehydrated. While a thorough skincare routine – packed with nourishing hydrating ingredients – is crucial to keeping skin luminous through winter, next-generation foundation formulations and highlighters can help get skin glowing in no time below. We’ve rounded up the best newcomers to the beauty world that will help you get glowing skin this winter.

The Best Foundations for Glowing Skin

The arrival of a new season is the ideal time to rethink your go-to foundation and Guerlain L’Essential Natural Glow Foundation ($102) has been created with 97 per cent natural-origin ingredients to provide skin with radiance for up to 16 hours. Skincare and make-up go hand in hand so Giorgio Armani has combined the best of both worlds with My Armani To Go Tone Up Cushion ($116). Packed with youth-restoring ingredients and anti-pollution protection, this clever little compact does much more than providing skin with a bright and dewy glow. YSL Touche Éclat goes full-coverage with new High Cover Radiant Concealer Pen ($69). It glides on just like the iconic original to create a natural-looking so make sure you pop it in your handbag for on-the-go touch-up.

The Best Highlighters for Glowing Skin

Summer has been and gone but that doesn’t mean your radiant, sun-kissed complexion has to disappear with it. All-in-one NARS Mosaic Glow Blush ($72 from Mecca) features a blush, bronzer and highlighter to get skin glowing in no time at all. Dior Diorskin Nude Luminizer in Pink Glow infuses skin with a subtle hint of iridescent pink. Not only will Westman Atelier Beauty Butter Powder Bronzer ($129) give your skin a tropical-island-getaway glow, nourishing ingredients including cocoa seed and mango seed nurture skin at the same time.

The Best Bronze Make-Up for Radiant Skin

Nothing says beats the winter blues like sun-kissed radiant skin. We’ve rounded up the best bronze make-up so you can forgo the sun’s harmful UV rays and get glowing the smart way no matter what the weather. 

Paring back make-up is the way to go for a barely-there beauty look has become a beauty world go-to both on and off the runway, and multi-tasking products make doing just that a whole lot easier. Use LancĂ´me Custom Highlight Drops ($55) alone to give skin a golden glow or blend with your favourite summer foundation for all-over radiance. 

No matter what your skin tone, you can’t go wrong with a trusty matte bronzer. EstĂ©e Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Powder Bronzer ($80) is a perennial favourite. Simply grab your bronzing brush and sweep across cheeks, shoulders and dĂ©colletage. The clever oil-control complex helps keep shine at bay even when summer heats up. 

It sounds too good to be true, but  Drunk Elephant‘s latest launch, D-Bronzi Anti-Pollution Sunshine Serum ($57 from Mecca Cosmetica and Maxima) mimics the benefits of vitamin D without the harmful side effects. Omega-rich marula and black currant seed oils boost the skin’s barrier function and potent antioxidants fend off pollution all while giving skin a healthy, sun-kissed glow.
While a laidback approach to beauty often rules the summer months, the festive season calls for a little fun every now and then. Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow ($38 from Mecca) in Bronzed Bell brings the party to your make-up look with its seriously glittery sheen. 
It might almost be too beautiful to use but YSL Les Sahariennes Bronzing Stones ($106) is perfect for defining cheekbones and giving skin a healthy glow. The long-wearing lightweight powder will transform your complexion in just a sweep of your bronzing brush.
