When your skin is being brutally assaulted by the harsh winter winds, make up should come to rescue. Right? But it’s not as simple as that. Applying makeup can get tricky during the winter season. What with the dry and flaky skin! Okay okay, before you start getting worried, please note that we at Salosa have put together a to-do list for you to get that makeup right on track and brave the winters.
The first and foremost thing to do is to keep your face as moisturized in the dry winters as possible. Well, that is basically setting the stage for your make up performance! So delicately exfoliate your skin first with a gentle scrub and then moisturize it well. At Salosa, we also offer various services like hydrating rejuvenation facials and revitalizing facials to make sure you have soft skin during the winters.
TIt’s a common myth that we don’t need sunscreen during winters, but like we said, it’s simply a myth. Don’t skimp on protecting your skin from the winter UV rays. Wear a sunscreen which has at least SPF 30.
Now that the stage is set, it’s time to start applying foundation. Try and use your fingers to apply the foundation so you can identify the patched or dry areas and work around them well. A creamy foundation is usually good for the winters.
The creamy aspect applies to your cheek products as well. Do make sure you use a blush which is not extremely powdery in nature as that can make your skin look even drier.
Again, you need to prep your lips before you decorate them. You should first exfoliate the flaky bits of your lips and then use a good dose of good lip balm. Opt for creamy, moisturizing options when it comes to lipsticks. Whatever happens, say no to mattes this season and also to any lipstick that claims to have a long wear formula.
Well, the simple tips for eyes are to tear proof your eye make up, use a cream based eye shadow and then use a nice metallic shade to get that perfect smoky look for the winters. Click here to checkout more on eye makeup.
