5 Makeup Tips for Glowing, Healthy Skin this Winter

It can be a daunting task to be forced by the weather to change a routine that you have become accustomed to in the warmer months. However, makeup does not react the same way in the winter as it does in the summer. The below 5 tips are great ways to counteract the winter weather effects on your skin and makeup routine.

1. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

It is beyond important to keep your skin full of moisture in the winter. Most foundations lack a moisturizing component. Therefore, when you are putting your foundation on, that makeup is going to lift the natural moisture in your skin out and dehydrate your skin. There are ways that you can easily add moisture into your foundation routine. Before putting any makeup on your face at all, use a moisturizing primer.

2. Stay away from anything powdery

The entire point of putting a powder on your face is to soak up unwanted oils from your skin. During the warmer months, these oils can be a nuisance as our skin is well hydrated and is not in any need of additional oil. However, in the winter when skin is at its driest, these natural oils that our skin is producing are completely necessary to keeping healthy, hydrated skin.

3. Waterproof your makeup

The wintry winds, sleet, ice and snow can cause the makeup around your eyes to melt off. This can cause redness in the eyes and can even result in eye infections if there is enough buildup throughout the days you wear eye makeup. There is a simple solution to this. Wearing waterproof eyeliner and mascara will keep your makeup in the proper places even if the snow is landing directly on your eyelashes. It is quite easy to get your hands on waterproof eyeshadow as well.

4. Tinted lip balm

Even though liquid lipstick is currently the biggest fad, it can be very damaging to your lips in the winter. The skin of your lips is very delicate and it doesn’t take much to make lips crack and dry out. While it may look great, layering liquid lipstick only helps to further dehydrate your lips.


5. Don’t go overboard with your makeup

With your skin being so sensitive in the winter, it is best to opt for lighter amounts of makeup. The coldness and the wind of the outdoors is sure to add natural color to your face. So, save your products and your skin by not applying as much as usual. Focus on your eyes in the colder months.
