We all love the winter season, isn’t it? Wearing cosy warm clothes, sipping hot coffee on the go, getting ready for the holidays and trying many new winter makeup trends. Wow, winter comes bearing truckloads of fun and excuses to stay in warmth. But, as much as we love this season, sometimes, it becomes irritating for the skin because of the dryness and flakiness. At times, pulling off any makeup during winter becomes quite a challenging task. You might end up having patches that make you look like a clown. Tough! Isn’t it? Lay off your worries, because there are a few simple tips that are going to add a dose of hydration to the skin with intense moisturisation.
Follow CTM Regularly
Due to the low humidity, the cold climate steals moisture from the skin and excessive dryness starts taking over the face, which leads to dry and dull skin. In such cases, a Cleanse, Tone and Moisturise routine is of paramount importance because it revitalises the skin by locking the moisture. Use a moisturiser that is formulated with conditioning oil, Vitamin E, and biotin extracts. Never forget to add a layer of sunscreen. Walk in the sun or stay glued to your sunbathing ritual, but always ensure to add sun protection to keep the skin healthy.
Use Liquid Foundation
Since the skin is already much drier in winter, things can go south if you don’t use the foundation curated with the formulation that is suitable for the season. Dry patches, cakey makeup face, and uneven coverage will become a never-ending struggle. To avoid this, ditch the powder or matte foundation and switch to a liquid foundation that is fortified with skin-loving ingredients, lightweight formula and features powerful hydrating elements like hyaluronic acid. Ace your base with a liquid foundation that is expert in retaining moisture and provides sheer coverage with intense hydration.
Use Water Proof Kajal and Mascara
We know you are wondering, no sweat, no humidity issue and yet using waterproof eye makeup is a must during winters. YES! The chill winds and cold weather often make the eyes watery, to avoid smudges all over the face and that Panda eyes, use a waterproof Kajal and Mascara. Look for a formulation that is lightweight, enriched with ingredients like Jojoba Oil, Rosehip Oil that soothes the eyes, and has ultra-buildable properties.
Stick to Liquid Highlighter
Winter somehow takes away the glow leaving the skin looking flaky and dry. To retain the shine and radiance, add an illuminating liquid highlighter to the makeup routine to instantly elevate your winter makeup look. We recommend using SÉRY Glow Dots Illuminating Highlighter. This product is a big-time game-changer for winter makeup. Mix it with the foundation, moisturiser, primer or apply it on the bare skin, this multi-functional highlighter offers a heavenly finish. The cherry on the cake is its care ingredient – Shea Butter and Vitamin E which keeps the skin nourished and moisturised.
Add a Pop of Blush
Winter makeup look is incomplete with the flush of blush on the cheeks. The warmth of peach blush, poppy pink, brick red or deep berry, laced with creamy texture does the job effortlessly. Swirl the brush of blush on the cheeks, and little touch on the nose to achieve that ideal winter face makeup. For hydration, always choose creamy or liquid blush, it effortlessly blends and defines your skin with a healthy and nourishing touch.
Apply Lip Gloss for Moisturised Lips
Dry and chappy lips are the biggest challenge of the winter. No matter how many glasses of water we drink, our lips tend to get dehydrated and dry. Overcome this struggle by applying a lip gloss that is non-sticky and gives intense hydration. We recommend you use SÉRY Butter Shine Lip Gloss, it is infused with Shea Butter which gives lip nourishment and hydration without sticking at all. Winter dry lips problem solved!
Pick your winter makeup product that is formulated with a cream or liquid base because such products provide a great amount of hydration and keeps the moisture intact for all day long.
