Come winter you make all sorts of changes in your home, wardrobe and skin care routine. Then why use the same makeup throughout the year? Your skin reacts differently to each season and it is important to winterize your makeup products in order to ensure your foundation does not look pale or settles into fine lines.

Here are 4 ways to winterize your makeup routine this season.

Get heavy on moisturising
 

Get heavy on moisturising

We all know that you should never start your base makeup on bare skin. It requires a layer of moisturiser to keep the skin protected, more so in winter when the harsh weather is wreaking havoc on your skin. Use a deeply nourishing moisturiser or gel such as the Lakme Peach Milk Soft Creme Moisturizer. Its soft whipped cream formula nourishes skin from within and keeps it hydrated for a long time.

Choose creamier textures

It goes without saying, the creamier your makeup products in winter the better. Swap your powder or matte foundation, lipstick and blush for a creamier texture. It will blend better and look more natural on your skin. We recommend the Lakme 9 to 5 Weightless Mousse Foundation, it blends effortlessly and conceals imperfections giving a smooth finish.

Give face powders a break
 

Give face powders a break

We know you like the matte look and frequent touch-ups during the day. But even after moisturising your skin these powders tend to settle into fine lines or look several shades different than your skin tone. Avoid face powders that will accentuate your dry patches. If your skin feels greasy, use blotting paper to get rid of the oil.

Shower some love on those lashes

Your skin is not the only victim of winter, to keep your lashes looking full and voluminous it’s important that you condition it too. Rub a little bit of the Vaseline Original Pure Skin Jelly between your fingers and apply it on your lashes before wearing mascara.
