Ski Style

As most of you know, I am in Vail, CO. Skiing is something Kevin taught me and we try to do every year together. Kevin's grandparents have a time share up here in Vail so we always go for a fun vacation!

Plus it works out perfectly because the good snow comes to AZ in the winter and to CO in the spring so we can usually get in two trips a year. :-)

Now I may not be a beauty blogger, but over the years skiing I have some beauty tips for you to look cute while keeping things to a minimum. Grab your skis (or snowboard) and let's go!!

1. Wear Sunscreen
This is the most crucial of the beauty tips. Anything SPF 30 and above. This will help protect you from those long days on the slope.

Love this stuff! And it is only 4.99!

2. Minimize Mascara
I do not like waterproof mascara, and if you do, you can do this on the slopes, but I have found that if I just keep mine to a minimum and it won't run and you will look glamorous!


3. Moisturize
Do not skip this step. All the cold wind blowing as you ski will need a nice moisture layer to protect that beautiful skin!
4. Skip the Blush
You will get rosy cheeks from the wind and cold. No need for blush. Add some additional lotion with sunscreen so you do not have chapped cheeks!


5. Use lots of Chapstick
Forget lipstick. Your lips will have color in them from all that exercise, so just keep them from being a chapped, hurt mess! If it has SPF in it, even better! Then keep it with you and reapply!
6. Control your Hair
The girls in the ski modeling photos will have long gorgeous locks coming down the mountain. But reality is once you reach the bottom it will be a tangled mess. Put your hair in a cute bun, pony tail, braids, or even pig tails. It looks nice under the hat! Almost looks like your hair is down...without it being down. ;-)
Fake smiles when it is freezing everybody!

7. Less is More
Do not waste your expensive MAC makeup when your face will be hidden behind your goggles and scarves. Keep it simple and not too much!

8. Have fun!
Now I can dream of looking amazing and sexy on the slopes. Who wants to give me lots of money for this dream....anyone?!

Apres Ski is so fun. My Pinterest board proves that I dream of the perfect wardrobe.

  1. Like we've talked before, I've been skiing my entire life and just this year I noticed more and more signs of "long hair prohibited" and they want it up so its not a safety hazard. I also will join your "I'd like money for cute snow outfits" campaign, every year I fall in love with them - but then I just make myself pretty for Apres and we're good!

    Have fun - I love Vail, never have skied it (I hear its one of the harder ones however) but love the town :)

  2. Hope you're having a blast! I've never been skiing or snowboarding before and I'm always so impressed by people who have the coordination to do it. :-)

  3. Cute outfit!! i alsolike the white coat one. Stylish and pretty. Thanks for the tips. i don't use Chapstick because it doesn't work on me, so I use Cover Girl Lipgloss and it makes my lips so soft.

    Keep having fun and careful on the slopes. :)
