7 cute products keep your skin glowy
In the winter, skin tends to take a turn for the worse. You’re not spending as much time in the sun, which means less UV rays and harmful sun exposure, but it also means you’re probably a lot paler. And with the cold’s drying effects on skin, your face might be looking a little lackluster. Check out these products to fake a realistic, not overdone, summer glow, even in the dead of winter!
This blush comes in 13 colors that range from pink tones to bronze ones, and at $4 each, you can afford to try more than one shade. If you’re not sure which is right for you, a warm peach will work on most skin tones. And, this one comes with a handy blush brush in case you don’t have one already!

If you only wear a li'l bit, bronzer can give your skin a believable – not fake – glow, no matter what season it is. This one comes in three different shades, and two of them include a light shimmer for some extra sparkle. Try applying bronzer on the parts of your face that the sun would hit – your forehead, nose and cheekbones – for a healthy, sunkissed look.
NARS Bronzing Powder, $33, sephora.com
This nifty palette includes a blush, a bronzer and a mirror – all for just three bucks! When used correctly, you can wear both shades at the same time for a natural look – use the bronzer on your cheekbones and the blush on the apples of your cheeks for a sun-kissed glow.

Bonne Bell’s handy blush kits each include two powder blush shades, so you can use the lighter one now and save the deeper one for the summertime. They have a handy flip case and each comes with a brush so you can take them on the run.

If you’ve never used blush before, this is a great starter product, because the color adjusts itself to work with your skin’s natural tone. That way, you don’t have to worry about applying the wrong color! The blush comes in two shades, coral and pink, but the coral one is easier to use in the fall because it’s warmer and has a touch of gold shimmer, so you won’t need to add bronzer.
Stila Custom Color Blush in Coral, $20, stilacosmetics.com
This lightweight formula won’t weigh your skin down, which is great if your skin can be sensitive or oily. The bronzer comes in three shades, light, medium and dark, so you don’t have much guessing to do to pick what’s right for you. And it comes with a bronzer brush for flawless application!
