As you put away your summer wardrobe, you might want to do the same for your foundation as well because the drop in temperature is likely to coincide with a drop in your skin moisture levels too.
While you can cover the rest of your body in protective layers, your face remains exposed to the elements so switching to a face foundation and a base makeup routine that takes care of dryness, dullness, dry patches, and flaking that accompanies 'Winter Face' is as essential as that cup of hot cocoa in the evenings. Everything, from your skin care regimen to makeup, needs to change, to battle the winter dryness so that you always look your best.
Here are some winter makeup tips indicating what you need to put on your to-do list ASAP:
Switch Your Foundation It's time to retire your mattifying foundation before patsy becomes your nickname. Opt for one that has moisturizing benefits so your skin is hydrated all day long.
Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise Among all winter makeup tips, moisturizing is top on the list. We couldn't be more emphatic if we tried. Pick a moisturizer that hugs your skin in the same way you hug your BFF. Moisturizing your skin at night and a few minutes before you apply your foundation in the morning ensures that the moisture is locked in.
Time to Prime A step in the makeup routine that's almost always given the step treatment, priming is an effective way to ensure that your makeup does not fade or budge through the day. For the winter months pick the best face primer according to your skin type. You could also mix your primer with your favourite moisturizer and skip the foundation altogether.
Dampen Your Beauty Blender While it's always advisable to work with a damp beauty blender, during winters it's almost a must. Our makeup experts' advise at MyGlamm is to gently pat your foundation into the skin with the beauty blender instead of rubbing it in.
