Just like how you swap your mini dresses with cute sweaters and your lightweight moisturisers with thick, cream-based ones, your makeup, too, needs to be upgraded come winter. Unless you want to end up with flaky skin and patchy makeup, we suggest making some tweaks to your makeup routine right now. Ahead, we’ve listed down five products you need to include in your winter makeup kit for flawless skin.


01. Moisturising matte lipstick

Moisturising matte lipstick

Flaky and dry lips are quite common during the winters and your beloved matte lipstick might be adding to your woes. That’s why you need to turn to a moisturising matte lipstick like the Lakmé Absolute Matte Ultimate Lip Color with Argan Oil this winter. Infused with moisturising argan oil, this matte lip colour works to hydrate your pout and give it a glamorous and comfortable matte finish that is perfect for this season. Available in 12 gorgeous shades of reds, pinks and nudes, you’re never running out of options with this one.


02. Hydrating primer

Hydrating primer

Your skin needs all the love and care in the winter season, and that means swapping your makeup essentials like matte primers with nourishing ones. Our go-to is the Lakmé Absolute Undercover Gel Primer. Enriched with Vitamin E, this primer not only ensures your makeup stays on for a long time but also works to nourish and moisturise your skin. It softens blemishes and makes sure your makeup blends seamlessly into the skin for a flawless look.


03. Creamy foundation

Creamy foundation

For the winters, it is always a good idea to swap your matte foundations with liquid and creamy based ones. Our favourite is the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation. Formulated with Moroccan argan oil, this serum foundation blends easily on your skin, keeps it moisturised and lends a dewy, radiant look to it. What we love is that it is available in 10 shades that are perfect for all Indian skin tones. So, make sure you get your hands on it right away!


04. Liquid highlighter

Liquid highlighter

Give all your powdery makeup some rest during this winter. And that goes for your highlighters too. Turn to a good liquid highlighter like the Lakmé Absolute Liquid Highlighter to give your skin a natural and glowy finish. This lightweight highlighter comes in three gorgeous shades that work to give your skin a dewy, radiant and oil-free look.


05. Tinted moisturiser

Tinted moisturiser

Since winter without moisturiser is like beach vacation without a straw hat, we suggest you add a tinted moisturiser to your vanity to give your skin the benefits of both skincare and makeup. We trust the Lakmé Absolute Hydra Pro Tinted Moisturiser for this. With hyaluronic acid and pentavitin in its formula, this tinted moisturiser gives long-lasting sheer coverage and nourishing and moisturising finish to your skin and leaves it smooth, supple and fresh even in the gloomy winters.
