‘Tis the season to be merry and glam, right? Due to understandable reasons (wear that mask) the focus will be on the eyes, and glowing skin plays a leading role this season as well, according to our beauty expert, Ana Bribiesca Hoff.
Not quite ready to bid farewell to your summer, sun-kissed glow? This season we maintain our glowing complexions with products like Augustinus Bader’s The Face Oil that will instantly nourish and hydrate. $230. At NeimanMarcus.com.
A monochromatic look, like this dusty rose hue, gives this trend a winter-perfect twist. Try a multi-use crème formula like Stila Complete Harmony Lip & Cheek Stick on eyes, lips, and cheeks. $26. At StilaCosmetics.com.
