- Use tinted moisturiser
- Avoid thick foundation layers
- Stick to chapstick
- Carry a face mist, always
- Use makeup brush or sponge
Use tinted moisturiser
During winter go heavy on moisturiser and minimise the use of thick foundation formulas. In fact there are so many tinted moisturisers and CC creams available that offer the required nourishment as well as give an even skin tone. The Lakme Complexion Care Face CC Cream gives a smooth coverage, moisturises skin as well as offers UV protection.
Avoid thick foundation layers
Your skin becomes dry and flaky in winter and needs to be moisturised every few hours. Powder based and thick foundation formulas are a strict no during winter. After applying your moisturiser go for an oil based foundation which will offer the required coverage and keep the skin from drying during the day. The Lakme Complexion Care Face CC Cream blends flawlessly and keeps skin smooth and supple.
Stick to chapstick
Chapstick is your winter best friend, it’s that time of the year when you can skip lipstick altogether and opt for a tinted lip balm. You can even wear the chapstick under your lipstick to enhance the its colour and save your lips from getting chapped. The Lakme Lip Love Chapstick range has various shades of tinted lip balms that will help you get through winter like a breeze.
Carry a face mist, always
If you always thought face mists are a summer essential, think again. Your skin requires constant hydration in winter because of the dry and cold air. Instead of touching up your makeup with a compact powder that will accentuate your dry patches, freshen up your skin with a few spritzes of face mist.
Use makeup brush or sponge
Have you always relied on your fingers to apply base makeup? Winter will make blending foundations using fingers harder and won’t give the finish you’re looking for. Instead use a damp synthetic brush or a makeup sponge to tap or blend foundation smoothly and evenly.
