Winter to Spring Makeup Transition Tips

Wednesday, April 03, 2013

--Guest Post By Peter Smith

The official start of spring was March 20 – which means that we can all wave goodbye to the winter blues and we can say a big smiley hello to the start of a new season. Every woman loves spring, as it is the first indication of the awesome season that’s yet to come, summer.

Winter is great when it first rolls in, the romantic promise of snow and the comfort of wearing an oversized jumper sat in front of the fire seems great, at first. However, the romantic nostalgia of heavy layering soon wears off, and it doesn’t take long before we start to show the signs and strains of the long cold months.

Winter to Spring Makeup - Woman in Spring

The Effects of Winter on Women

The cardigans, knitted jumpers and heavy overcoats are one thing, but it’s the pale face and the damaged hair that really gets the girls down during the winter months. The dramatic temperature changes from the cold outdoors to the overheated indoors can cause havoc with our hair and can ruin the delicate facial skin. The lips in particular can suffer at the hands of the winter months.

These seasonal changes can have a dramatic impact on the day to day health and beauty regime. Suddenly it’s all out with the glamorous shades of autumn, and the day to day routine becomes a matter of protection against the elements. We might apply a little eyeliner here and a touch of mascara there, but our focus is on the protection of our skin, which means plenty of moisturising products.

The Start of Spring and The Changes to Your Makeup Routine

The start of spring should also mean the start of seasonal changes to your makeup routine. Your hair and sin no longer requires quite as much protection from the elements, and the change of wardrobe from greys, black and blues to pastel, natural and even bright shades means that you can make some changes to your beauty regime. Below are some great tips and products that can help you make a smooth transition from winter to spring.

Swap Heavy Foundations for Light Moisturiser

During the winter months you simply can’t be blamed for plying on heavy amounts of foundation to cover the condition of your skin and to bring a little colour to your face. However, this can leave your skin in a poor condition.

In order to prepare your skin for summer, you need to move away from the liberal application of foundation, and instead opt for a light moisturiser, such as Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint. This fantastic tinted moisturizer is the perfect start for your transition from winter to spring.

The Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint can be purchased for around $38, and is available in a range of shades including Pearl, Glow, Golden, Bronzed and Deep Bronze. This lovely light moisturiser is a great product and it will make the most of the first few rays of sun that come with spring, while helping to repair the damage caused by the long winter months.

Break out the Bronzer

You may be panicking that by reverting to a lightly tinted moisturiser that your face could lose a little colour, but there’s no need to fear as Jouer is here again to help save the day.

Spring is the time to prepare yourself for the upcoming summer months, so when you ditch the heavy foundation it’s time to break out the bronzer.
Simply apply a little of the Jouer mineral powder bronzer (available in a sunshine and suntan shade) across your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and your forehead to add some colour to your spring makeup.

Priced at around $25 to $40 this is an affordable essential for your makeup collection.
