During winter, my skin goes quite pale. It can also start to look a bit dry from the windy weather and time spent in front of heaters. When I’m not working I prefer to go makeup-free and just stick to my winter skin care products. But today I was doing an interview and wanted a healthy, dewy skin look.
Since I was rushing to the interview from another meeting, I only had a few minutes to fix my skin while I was in the car in the parking lot. Luckily I keep a few makeup staples in my handbag for these sorts of occasions.

I made a little video afterwards to explain what I used to get that fresh, dewy skin look. Just three of my go-to products were needed:
- PÜR Air Perfection CC Cushion Foundation. I use ‘Medium’ for my skin tone.
- PÜR Disappearing Ink Concealer Pen. I use ‘Light’ for my skin tone.
- NARS cream illuminator. My beautiful friend Kylie Gulliver put me onto this. I use ‘Hot Sand’ for my skin tone.
With these products, it’s pretty foolproof because they are all lightweight. Just start with a little bit of product. You can always add more but it’s hard to take it off if you go too far, especially when you’re in the car without a sink or any tissues!
With makeup, I really believe that less is more. I don’t want it to look like I’m wearing a lot of product and I want to avoid having the product visible on my face. That’s why I use my fingers to apply it to my skin. I’m not a makeup artist and I’m sure there are times when application brushes and sponges are best. But for a natural look, I find that the warmth from my fingers helps the product blend into my skin. Just make sure your fingers are clean before you get started.
