Come winters, all of us tend to swap our lightweight, gel-based moisturiser with something a lot thicker, creamier and more winter-appropriate. But are you following the same strategy when it comes to your makeup products as well? No? Well, then this article is just for you.

If you’re still using the same foundation and blush that you loved throughout summer, then it’s time to switch things up a little bit. In order to battle the cold months, you must include more hydrating and illuminating products in your beauty routine. Ahead, we list the makeup swaps you need to when the temperature drops.


01. An illuminating primer

5 makeup swaps you need to make for winter

Wearing layers of makeup over dry winter skin not only delivers a cakey finish but also makes your skin look dull and lacklustre. To avoid this, gently exfoliate your skin several times a week to get rid of dead skin and apply a generous amount of the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer. It will help give your skin a subtle glow under the foundation and keep your makeup from clinging onto the dry patches on your skin.


02. CC cream

Wearing a full-coverage matte foundation is a big no-no during the winters as they can enhance the dry patches on your face. Instead, switch to a lightweight CC cream like the Lakme 9 to 5 Complexion Care Cream. Enriched with skin-loving ingredients, this CC cream moisturises, brightens the skin while also providing decent coverage for a natural-looking finish.


03. Liquid concealers

It is time to bid goodbye to your lightweight concealers and opt for a thick, creamy concealer instead. Liquid formulas have a thicker and creamier formula that sits really well on the skin. Additionally, since liquid formulas are also easy to blend, they conceal dryness quite easily. The Lakme Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer is perfect for this. It not only helps to conceal imperfections but also brightens dull and tired skin.


04. Cream products

Winters is when you should totally give up on all your powder products and switch to creamier formulas. This includes your blush, compact powders, highlighters, etc. Powder formulas end up highlighting dry patches, and that’s something you definitely don’t want. Cream formulas, on the other hand, tend to blend and sit on your skin flawlessly, making it absolutely perfect for the winters.
