In winter, apply moisturizer before foundation. For the day, apply sunscreen lotion. Wait for 5 minutes and then apply foundation.

Use creamy foundation in winter. For oil skin, add a drop of water to the foundation, for lighter coverage. Blend with a damp sponge for an even finish. Apply foundation on the forehead and on either side of the nose. Using a damp sponge spread it evenly and smoothly outwards. Then apply it on the chin and smooth it along the jaw line, blending slightly upwards, towards the cheeks. Also, go downwards to the neck. Blend well and see that no lines of demarcation are visible.

Then apply powder to “set” the foundation. After applying powder, use cotton wool or a clean brush to dust off the excess. For winter, use creamy eye shadow, rather than powdery ones, especially if the skin is very dry. Creamy eye shadows are more difficult to apply, but they will not cause dryness and will give a better effect in winter.

Use glossy lipstick, rather than matte ones for winter. Matte lipsticks cause further dryness. Use a lip pencil to outline the lips and then fill in with color, using a lip brush. After applying lipstick, use a colorless lip gloss to add shine and a wet look. This is more appealing in winter.

In some cases, there is a problem of dark lips. This may become more obvious in winter. One lip may be darker than the other. To help lighten the color of the lip, you should apply an almond cream or almond oil and leave it on all night. While applying lipstick, apply a dark brown color on the lighter-colored lip. Then apply the lipstick of your choice on both lips. This will help to make your lipstick even-colored on both lips.

A Lip Balm will help to keep the lips in good condition in winter.

Pay attention to the following tips for winter make-up:

Apply a moisturizing lotion before foundation. Wait for 10 minutes and then apply foundation.

Avoid using excess powder. It gives a dry look to the face in winter.

Blending is important.

Make sure that the powder does not settle in the lines and creases, especially around the eyes.

Every night, after cleansing, apply almond cream or pure almond oil on the lips, leaving it on overnight.

Avoid very dark coloured lipstick, like dark brown or dark maroon.
