Winter is a whirlwind of festivities and gatherings. And amid all the chaos, planning the perfect makeup look can feel like a daunting task. With a calendar full of back-to-back events, ranging from your kid’s class party to an elegant work dinner, I recommend opting for the timeless elegance of a nude, soft glam look. Soft glam strikes the perfect balance between full glam and your everyday natural look, making it ideal for wearing throughout a busy day. A good soft glam look will provide you with versatility, allowing you to go from a casual gathering to a nice formal event, without ever feeling under-dressed or over-the-top. So here are my 4 tips on how to get a flawless nude, soft glam winter look this holiday season.
#1 Prep the Skin for Your Nude Soft Glam Look
One of the most important parts of any makeup application is starting with a clean and prepared canvas. The best thing you can do for your makeup prep is to properly clean and moisturize your face every day. Seint’s Skincare Routine is a great option to use both morning and night.
For deeper hydration, consider using Pomifera’s Plump serum daily and adding Seint’s Masque application twice a week to enhance your regular skincare routine. With Seint’s skincare regimen, Masque, and Pomifera’s Plump serum, you’re sure to have beautiful skin all year round. Taking care of your skin should be a top priority.

#2 Start with a Foundation that Smoothes Your Skin, No Cakey Finish Allowed!
The entire idea behind the soft glam look is that it’s an elevated natural look. This is achieved by focusing on getting flawless-looking skin without harsh lines or dramatic colors. This means that you need makeup that is both buildable and easily blended.
Enter Seint’s IIID Foundation – a cream-based foundation that has everything you need to create a dewy and flawless finish that mimics the natural highlights and contours of your face. With buildable coverage, Seint’s IIID Foundation allows you to achieve as natural or as full coverage as you desire. So with the right application, this makeup can also give you the perfect balanced look between natural and full glam.
Seint’s IIID Foundation consists of four parts: contour, highlight, lip+cheek, and illuminator. With a light hand and a good blending brush, you can achieve the desired natural look while still removing any visible blemishes and avoiding a thick and cakey texture.

#3 Don’t Skip the Blush!
Blush is an essential part of creating the soft glam look, but you also have to be mindful of the colors you choose. You’ll want to pick colors that complement your natural complexion. With the nude soft glam look, you’ll want to avoid bright, neon colors and lean towards more natural colors like beiges, pinks, and browns.
One good example of this is Rosewood Lip+Cheek color. Not only will it give you a natural rosy flush to your cheeks, but it also makes a pretty lip color and eye color. And even though this shade pulls rather warm, it can work for all complexions, even those with a cooler base. You can see what it looks like on me here, and how I make it work even with my cooler complexion.

#4 Create a Diffused Eyeshadow Look
Unlike with bold glamor, your eyeshadow look should be subtle and well-blended. Similar to the lip and blush colors, you should stick to neutrals, browns, and pinks. If you’re wondering what colors would look best with your eye color, you can use the following posts:
And while these posts provide great guidelines, keep in mind that it is best to opt for neutral shades in each section to get the nude glam look.
