10 Tips For Radiant Skin This Winter. Harsh conditions are here, henceforth we need to be prepared. Your face tends to get dry, flaky and irritated. But you have to show up somewhere, be it school, work or outings. There a few easy solutions are at least. The following winter makeup tips and tricks will help you look bright and radiant this winter.
1. Apply A Face Mask
It’s easier to run foundation over skin that’s well moisturized. To fight flakes, try a powerful creamy hydrating mask made with nourishing ingredients that provide intense and deep hydration. Start by using one once a week at night for five to 15 minutes and see how often you need to it.
Before you put on your makeup, apply a good moisturizer. Look for one with anti-inflammatory and moisturizing ingredients that combat irritation and flakiness. Put on moisturizers immediately (and generously) after you cleanse to help lock in the moisture you got when you washed your skin. Be sure the moisturizer has been absorbed into your skin before applying your makeup.
3. Prep Your Eyes
Your eyes can tear in the winter thanks to the harsh winds, sleet and snow. And that can lead to runny mascara and eye shadow. Prime eyelids with face powder to help absorb excess oil, which can cause makeup to smudge. Use waterproof mascara to prevent smudges and smears. Apply eyeshadow and eyeliner only to the upper lids to prevent these products from moving elsewhere.
4. Use The Right Cleanser
f you use a cleanser that’s too harsh, skin can get irritated, red or tight. And if it’s too gentle, you’ll have to wash hard or twice just to get a thorough cleanse. The right cleanser won’t strip away too much of the skin’s healthy cells or natural oils. And it will get rid of makeup, grime, excess oils and dirt completely.
5. Say Goodbye To Dry Lips
Lips dry out easily since they lack oil glands, and they flake when abused by bad weather, which can make lipstick look blotchy. That’s why it’s important to remember to exfoliate your lips to remove their dead, dry skin, helping improve their tone and texture. To polish up your pucker, remove dead skin by applying a lip balm. Then exfoliate gently with a damp washcloth. Next, apply cream lipsticks, which are moister than matte or long-lasting ones. Or try a tinted lip balm with sunscreen.
6. Take Advantage Of Blush
Blush can wake up your complexion and revive a washed-out face. Try a soft, peachy color if you have fair skin or a warm, terra cotta one if you have darker skin. Apply blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend toward your cheekbones.
7. Adjust Your Foundation
Your summer sun-kissed glow is sadly gone, and your skin appears duller in the season’s dimmer daylight. So, choose a base that’s at least one shade lighter than you usually wear. Use a hydrating formula that contains moisturizing ingredients like glycerin because skin tends to be drier in the winter.
8. Keep Makeup In Place
If your makeup often rubs off onto your scarf, hat or coat, try this trick to help it stay put: Apply a layer of translucent pressed powder, which is less messy than loose powder. It will help keep makeup on your face, which is where you want it.
Get used to wearing gloves and scarves to protect skin from cold winds, rain, and snow. Also, don’t forget the sunscreen. Winter sun can be just as damaging as summer sun, so apply a safe option like zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to any exposed areas
We tend to drink less water in the winter because we turn to hot drinks like cocoa and tea, but don’t forget that your skin needs hydration from the inside, out. A little warm water with lemon can be very refreshing and hydrating at the same time.
