Product swaps you need to make to up your makeup game this winter

We can already feel the effects of winter on our skin and hair. The constant dryness, the frequent moisturiser application and hot oil massages. You have also replaced your regular moisturiser with a creamier one to combat dry skin. But is that all your skin needs to look its best?

If you wear makeup on a regular basis or want it to look perfect at all the upcoming parties you’ll be attending, then it’s time you upgrade your makeup products. The same foundation and lipstick aren’t going to help. Your skin is drier and needs constant hydration during the colder months. Therefore, we are going to help you make the right product swaps to up your makeup game this winter.


Hydrating foundation

Cream blush

Winter calls for a hydrating, liquid foundation, cause no matter what your skin type, your skin is going to feel dry. It’s time to swap your current creamy or matte foundation for a richer, hydrating formula such as the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45. Apart from giving excellent coverage, it will also keep your skin moisturised and supple.


Liquid concealer

Cream blush

Sure, concealer sticks might be easy to work with, but nothing works better in winters than liquid concealers. The Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer blends like a dream and will not settle into creases or fine lines. It will leave you with flawless, smooth skin, without any dry patches.


Creamy lipsticks

Cream blush

We know you love wearing matte lipsticks, but winter targets your delicate lips first. That’s the reason you have to keep petroleum jelly or a lip balm handy all throughout winter. You should also swap your regular matte lipstick with a creamy formula such as the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. The best part about this lipstick is that you can also use it as a blush to give your cheeks a naturally flushed look!


Gel eyeliner

Cream blush

You can continue to wear your trusted liquid eyeliners but the application may not be as smooth because the skin around your eyes tends to get drier during winter. Instead, opt for gel eyeliners such as the Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Gel Eye Liner, available in five stunning shades. This eyeliner will allow you to experiment with several different eye makeup looks this party season.


Cream blush

Cream blush

dry skin and could end up looking unnatural. Instead, swap it with a creamy formula, like the Lakmé Kareena Kapoor Khan Lakmé Absolute Cheek Contour which blends like a dream and sets as a powder finish.
