When upgrading your closet, you also need to refresh your makeup choices because the drop in temperature will likely collide with the fall in moisture level of your skin too.

To completely eliminate unsightly skin dryness along with a host of other skin concerns, we have curated a list of essential winter makeup tips that you must keep in mind and put on your to-do list during the cold season.

Even on summer days, the foremost step to preparing your skin is to use a good hydrating moisturiser. The skin needs an extra boost of hydration during winters, which a regular moisturiser cannot fulfil, especially if you have dry skin. To overcome this, you should apply face oils or serums or use a nourishing moisturiser that sits well into your pores.

In winter, it is recommended to stick with liquid and cream foundations for a flawless base application. The flowy consistency makes it easy to blend with both a brush and hands. Liquid foundations and concealers will assist you in creating a flawless makeup look and prevent the skin from drying. 

Pro Tip:

One of the most effective winter makeup tips is to mix your regular foundation and moisturiser to form a quick DIY hydrating base. This will save you the hassle of purchasing a dewy foundation along with a host of other winter makeup products

3. Avoid using Powdery Makeup Products:

Even if you are thoroughly following a proper hydration routine before applying your makeup base, your attempts to create a flawless look will go to waste if you use too many powdery products. Normal and oily skin types can still use compacts or translucent powder. However, women with dry skin should certainly adhere to such winter makeup tips and consider shying away from powders as it may further cause flaking.

Pro Tip:

One of the best winter makeup tips would be to use pressed powder to set your makeup as it is less drying on the skin. You can apply it to the skin by using a makeup sponge or brush.

4. Use Liquid Blush and Highlighter:

Also, for achieving a smooth lipstick application, don’t forget to moisturise your lips with a hydrating lip balm of your choice. If you are creating a party makeup look, you can also opt for lip gloss. Never deal with chapped lips ever again through the application of lip balms, cream lipsticks and gloss. They will ensure that your lips are soft, supple and hydrated throughout the day.

Pro Tip:
