Finding the perfect present for a loved one can sometimes leave you scratching your head until the very last minute. If you still need a gift for your mom, sister or best friend, why not put together a winter beauty survival kit?

Winter weather presents a tricky conundrum – the cold temperatures make it nearly impossible to get adequate sun exposure (leaving your complexion unfortunately pale) and the dry air sucks moisture out of your skin, making powder blushes looking cakey and unnatural.

While women often experiment with a wide variety of lip colors, and are quick to try out shadows of all hues, some ladies may be more apprehensive about donning different shades of blush, often sticking with a pink-toned powder. While rosy cheeks are delightful, why not try an earthy color.

Winter is almost here, which means cold and flu season is on its way as well. While many people prepare for the season by purchasing cough drops and tissues, glamour girls may be more inclined to stock up on beauty supplies to keep them looking great no matter how sick they feel.

Whether you have an early meeting or are running late to meet your friends for drinks, sometimes you don’t have a whole lot of time to create a flawless appearance. Luckily, makeup artist Jason Garner recently shared some tips with StyleList.com that he promises will have a big impact in a short amount of time.

When wearing a nude-colored dress, it’s hard to keep from looking washed out without a lot of makeup, which makes Elizabeth Moss’ recent look so impressive. At the 38th Annual International Emmy Awards Gala in New York City, Moss sported a flesh-toned gown and minimal makeup, and appeared more fresh-faced than ever.

Now that the summer sun has set, many women have broken out the bronzer in hopes of hiding their pale skin. But instead of a fake bake, why not brighten your complexion with a warm blush? It’s a quick and easy way to look fresh-faced and healthy.

While some women may think that a rock and roll appearance requires lots of smoky eye makeup and bold-colored lipstick, gals trying to look like a rockstar may want to put down the eyeliner.

While beauty trends can be embraced and interpreted by women of all ethnicities, makeup application techniques may vary depending on the color of your complexion. According to makeup artist Sam Fine, gals with darker skin should invest in bronzer, a cream concealer and pressed powder.

Now that the summer sun has gone away, women across the country may be looking for ways to add a bit more color to their complexion. However, ladies should be cautious of the amount of pigment they apply to their face.

While treating dull winter skin may require a steady regiment of lotions and creams, women may also want to pick up a few cosmetics to perk up their complexion.

Women with hectic schedules may often find themselves hard pressed for time when getting ready for a big night out – after rushing home from the office, hopping in the shower and selecting an outfit, there may be a few precious minutes left to apply makeup.
