When your skin is dry and scaly, it often comes in the way of makeup application. This is why we often struggle with our makeup application during the winters. But beating winter makeup problems is actually about combating winter skin problems because once you have smooth, hydrated skin, applying makeup becomes super easy. If you’ve been facing makeup application problems, here are some ways to combat them...

Your primer doesn’t sit well…

If you have dry skin during the winters, primers can be a little drying for your skin. Our makeup tip is to first moisturise your skin, let your skin drink up the cream and then opt for a primer. If you ask us, this is the perfect season to use the Pond's White Beauty Winter Anti-spot Moisturiser that works as a skin lightening treatment along with a cold cream to give smooth skin—just what you need as a prep step when it comes to applying makeup perfectly in the winters.

Your foundation is flaking…
 

Your foundation is flaking…

While a lightweight foundation is ideal during the winters, it is during this season that we often face the problem of flaking foundation—it just doesn’t seem to set smoothly and it’s even worse, if you’re using a matte foundation that dries out immediately. What do you do in such cases? An effective pre makeup tip would be to first hydrate your skin! Your skin is dehydrated and dry and hence, doesn’t allow your foundation to glide on perfectly. So apply a serum that will add intense hydration to your skin. We suggest going with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum and applying it every night before going to bed so you wake up to hydrated skin. Once your skin feels well moisturised, then go with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Serum Foundation that gives your skin the goodness of argan oil. This way, your skin will get doubly hydrated.

Your chapped lips show through your matte lipstick…
 

Your chapped lips show through your matte lipstick…

It happens to the best of us—our lips are chapped and so dry during the winters that our lipsticks don’t look as impactful. You might try concealing it with a bright pink matte lipstick, but it’s going to show your chapped, cracked skin beneath. What you ideally need to do is apply the Vaseline Lip Care Total Moisture on your lips. This one instantly softens and soothes dry lips, thanks to its ingredient Vaseline Petroleum Jelly. Once you’ve finished this step, apply your matte lipstick.

Eyelashes often turn brittle and dry during the winters. Applying a drying mascara on your lashes can make matters worse. Make sure you hydrate your lashes every night by applying a bit of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on them. Also make sure you use a moisturising mascara—like the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara that contains D-Panthenol, which has intensely moisturising properties. So along with voluminous lashes, it’ll also leave them moisturised!
