Come winter, it is important to change your makeup and skincare routine to make it more suitable for the cold and dry climate. While skincare products keep your skin moisturised and supple, picking the right makeup products ensures smoother application and a flawless finish.

And if you are wondering how to make your makeup look spot-on as well as what changes to make to your winter makeup routine, then you’ve come to the right place. In this article, we have listed down six useful winter makeup tips that will definitely make your skin look flawless, radiant and soft throughout the cold winter months…

 

01. Don’t forget to exfoliate

01. Don’t forget to exfoliate

When it comes to your winter beauty routine, you simply cannot skip exfoliation. Using a gentle exfoliator such as the St. Ives Gentle Smoothing Oatmeal Scrub & Mask all over your face and neck helps to slough away dead skin cells, and gives your skin an incredibly soft and even texture. This allows your makeup goes on super smooth and look totally skin-like.

 

02. Use a thick moisturiser

We don’t need to tell you the importance of using a moisturiser during winters, but you must choose the right one for better results. A thick, hydrating moisturiser like the Lakme Peach Milk Soft Creme Moisturizer is perfect for the job. Packed with peach milk extracts, vitamin E and sunflower oil, this moisturiser will nourish and condition your skin to keep it baby soft and supple.

 

03. Use the right primer

To take your winter makeup game several notches higher, it is essential to use a primer. This product not only makes your makeup last longer but also evens out the dry patches, giving your foundation a smooth base to cling on. But not any primer will do. Switch up your regular mattifying primer with something a lot more hydrating such as the Lakme Absolute Under Cover Gel Face Primer. Infused with vitamin E, this primer creates a smooth canvas for makeup application and ends up moisturising and nourishing your skin.

 

04. Switch to a dewy-finish foundation

The cold winter weather already makes your skin look dry and itchy, and using a matte-finishing foundation can end up enhancing those dry patches. Therefore, we would highly advise you to use a lightweight, dewy finish foundation such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation SPF 45. Enriched with argan oil, this foundation not only delivers a glowing finish, while keeping your skin healthy and moisturised.

 

05. Opt for cream formulas

When choosing the rest of your makeup products, consider switching to cream-based formulas wherever possible. Cream blushes, lipsticks and highlighters sit better on dry winter skin and smoothes down flaky patches more effectively. The Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Lip and Cheek Colour is perfect for this. The creamy texture and lightweight formula blend quickly for a natural flush of colour.

 

06. Use some bronzer

One step that most women tend to skimp during their winter makeup routine is putting on some bronzer. Winter is when your skin tends to get really dehydrated, making you look super dull and lifeless. But merely swiping on a little bronzer from the Lakme Absolute Highlighter – Moon Lit can bring back a lot of warmth to your skin, making it look instantly healthier.
