Winter is synonymous with dry skin and chapped lips. Obviously then, you need to pick your winter makeup carefully to make sure your makeup doesn’t end up looking patchy or cakey! One way to make sure your makeup is winter friendly, is by hand picking the texture of your lipstick and foundation such that it works with (dry and dehydrated) winter skin.  

Let’s take a look at what lipstick texture is perfect for winter and how to wear them...

 

Matte lipsticks

As much as we love matte lipsticks, they can end up drying out post application. So when you are planning to wear matte lipstick (especially liquid mattes) you will need to do a certain amount of preparation before applying, just to avoid over-creasing or chapping!

To wear liquid matte lipsticks you need to follow these basic steps; start by moisturising your lips with Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. Then exfoliate your lips using a brush and follow that up with a lip balm. Finally apply the  Lakmé Absolute Matte Melt Liquid Lip Color. Top that up with a primer for a long lasting effect and lastly dab some highlighter for plumpness.

 

Glossy lipsticks

If you thought those glossy lips are a thing of the ‘90s, well you are wrong. Women who want to make their lips look plump and lush pick glossy over mattes. Glossy lipsticks are also highly reflective and look great in most dark wintery shades like berries and browns. They’re also available in various colours that can either be worn as is or you can use them on top of any other matte lipstick for a long lasting lip colour!

We suggest you go with the   Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Colors that come infused with the goodness of Argan oil which will keep your lips moisturised and the glossy texture will give you a lush look to wear in winter. If you pick a dark winter friendly shade, your lips are more than winter ready!

 

Satin lipsticks

Satin lipstick texture is considered one of the most common textures and we say they are also the best for winter. Satin lipsticks offer a balmy sort of a finish. Using these lipsticks adds a hint of colour to your lips; like that of a tinted balm which is perfect for the season. The Lakmé Enrich Satin Lip Color range we think is just the lip colour range for winter.

PS: These require regular touch-ups as they can’t stay put for long hours.
