You need warm air around your fingers. This is why mittens work so well. The most common mistake people make is wearing tight gloves, because they're comfortable. Loose gloves are warmer.

I just wear a pair of loose fleece gloves now it's got milder, but when things get extreme, and you need comfort, support, and warmth, you have to turn to science - wear a coarse wool glove underneath, that'll trap warm air in all the holes. Then slip a thin windproof glove over the top, that's not so tight as to squeeze the air out of the wool. This worked well for me in our recent freeze.
