5 Steps To Include In Your Winter Makeup Routine

Base Makeup Steps In Your Winter Makeup Routine
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 iin protective layers, your face remains exposed to the elements so switching to a 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 hot cocoa in the evenings. Everything, from your skincare regimen to makeup step by step, 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 moisturising benefits so your skin is hydrated all day long.

Moisturise, Moisturise, Moisturise
Among all winter makeup tips, mositurising is top on the list. We couldn't be more emphatic, if we tried. Pick a moisturiser that hugs your skin in the same way you hug your bff. Moisturising 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 our skin type. You could also mix your primer with your favourite moisturiser 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.

Use a Toner
Before you moisturise your face, use a natural cotton pad soaked in a toner to remove any flaky skin. Use one without alcohol, so your skin does not dry out.

Revamp your routine including the above, and you can say goodbye to that dry, lifeless and patchy winter face forever.
