Now that chilly weather is here, not only will you need to change your skin care routine, but your make-up bag will need a makeover too. Here are the absolute must-haves for the season. There are so many people who dread winter for the mere reason that it brings a challenge to maintaining healthy and well-moisturizer skin. Extra care and attention is needed during the winter season, because during the cold months, the oil glands situated just below the surface of the skin tend to become relatively inactive and produce less moisture than usual. The wind and cold conditions that it brings along only adds to the dryness. With the onset of winters, your makeup also needs to go major change.
Winter Makeup Tips:
Winter makeup requires extremely different approach than makeup for other season. Why? Because cold weather might be devastating for looks you work on for several hours. In this article we share some interesting tips for winter makeup.
- Use blackberry and copper color polish to darken your nails. It is perfect for the season and looks best on short, just-to-your-fingertips nails.
- Try colored mascara like navy, burgundy, and auburn that gives lashes a subtle color and some depth as well, without looking too obvious.
- Winters calls for more defined eyes. So, you should use a chocolate brown or charcoal liner along your upper lashes.
- It is a good idea to opt for neutral shades of makeup, such as light browns, grays, pinks and purples.
- If you want to draw attention to only one area of your face during winter, it is best to put emphasis on your eyes. A smoky eye look will work well during this time of year.
- Keep your lips moisturized in order to prevent them from becoming cracked and dry. It is a good idea to apply a lip-gloss throughout the day.
- A bit of sheen on eyes can be used too for a change, especially if you are using nude shades on your lips.
- Either your moisturizer or your foundation should have broad-spectrum sun protection.
- A light, matt foundation as well as a tinted powder, with a slight shimmer, look great in winters.
- For fragrance, it is best to stick to essence of essential oils, spices and other natural aromas.
