A golden glow in winter can be a beautiful thing. But the trick here is restraint and a masterful hand. You'll need a lighter colour than for summer - it's about enhancing with warmth, not overpowering with tan. A good rule to start with is using a kabuki brush to dust an "E" shape on both sides of the face, start on the hairline, along the hollows of your cheeks, then along and under the jawline.

DO: only go one shade darker than your complexion.

DON'T: use all over the face, this is the road to overbaked ruin.

"For something light I go with M.A.C's Prep + Prime BB Beauty Balm which gives a great natural look. I finish my everyday look with M.A.C waterproof mascara - essential when I'm in and out of the pool."
