During the winter months, my complexion gradually fades to a lighter shade of pale, unless I am able to work a sunny vacation in there somewhere. While my wardrobe takes a turn for darker colors, I always try to incorporate some bold and bright looks, a tonal white story, and these days some muted pinks.  With that said, sometimes the best way to compliment a ghostly face is through various beauty tactics. I've never been one to use self-tanners or spray tans, so one of my favorite go-to's outside of a vampy red lip or a smokey eye is to play up my lashes. I love the lash extensions and the wake up and walk out ease they provide, but, unfortunately, for me due to allergic reactions, it's not an option. I rely on the astounding amount of temporary lashes out there whether they are strips or individuals. When I have the individual lashes done, I can make them last for a few days if I'm careful while washing and use a little extra glue. Otherwise delve into strips where you will find feathered, embellished, dramatic, or simple options by so many different companies, one that always seems to do it right is Shu Uemura. Look into the Shu Uemura and Karl Lagerfeld collaboration for fun spirited lashes. Why not experiment with natural makeup and extreme lashes as you trudge through these colder months? They are a wonderful pick me up!
