Winter is probably the worst time of the year for those with dry skin. Plus with all the parties lined up, wearing makeup seems like a nightmare, doesn’t it? Not when you have us! Nose peeling, flaking foundation, cracking concealer are all things of the past. We’ve got you covered with party makeup hacks for dry skin. Here’s how you can get flake-free long lasting makeup during winter.
- Use a creamy exfoliator
- Apply a nourishing serum
- Don’t skip primer
- Right foundation formula
- Use makeup brush or sponge
Use a creamy exfoliator
A gentle creamy exfoliator with micro beads is a winter must-have for those with dry skin. The St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Face Scrub removes dry, dead skin and impurities to give you smooth and soft skin.
Apply a nourishing serum
Serums are a lot more nourishing than creams, since you have dry skin opt for a serum such as the Lakme Absolute Perfect Radiance Skin Lightening Serum. It nourishes skin from deep within and makes it look smooth and illuminated.
Don’t skip primer
Primer is an essential step while prepping skin for makeup. It creates the perfect base for every skin type so that makeup glides easily while smoothing out pores and imperfections. We love the Lakme Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer as it is light weight, waterproof and gives a smooth finish.
Right foundation formula
While most people get the prepping part right, they choose the wrong foundation texture. The reason foundations are available in so many different textures is because each skin type demands a different formulation. Those with dry skin should go for a liquid nourishing foundation such as the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation With SPF 45. Its superior nourishing property keeps skin hydrated and gives a dewy look all day.
Use makeup brush or sponge
When applying makeup on dry skin avoid using fingers to blend the product as it can absorb all the moisture. Invest in a good foundation brush or makeup sponge to keep dryness away.
