Dos and Don’ts of Makeup During Winter for a Flawless Look
We all have different levels of love for the winter season but the drop in temperature leads to dehydrated skin due to a decrease in humidity. During such a sharp shift in the weather, our skin tends to become dry and flaky, lips chapped and nails brittle. Therefore, to maintain the radiance and glow of the skin we need to be a little mindful while choosing makeup products. Little changes like using a creamier moisturizing, hydrating primer, liquid foundation, and much more can be helpful.
Also, using makeup products that are infused with care ingredients and contain SPF becomes paramount of importance. Does this mean that you need to purchase new and different products? No. All you need is to upgrade the skincare regime and apply the products that are suitable for winter makeup. To make it easy for you we have made a complete rundown of dos and don’ts that needs to be considered while doing makeup in winter.
Dos and Don’ts of Makeup During Winter
For any makeup – subtle or glam, the base should be strong and the canvas should be smooth. Achieve it by following the below-mentioned points.
Don’t: Never skip a primer, we repeat NEVER! The primer is the most basic and important part of the makeup routine. It is an expert in covering the pores and providing deep hydration to the skin. Ensure to add a primer that is suitable for any type of weather so that there’s no hassle of changing it throughout the year. Face primers infused with vegetal glycerine and other hydrating ingredients.
Do: Often, during winters, you may have noticed the foundation dries out and the makeup leaves patches on the skin. This could be the result of using a matte foundation. For a flawless and smooth base, use a liquid foundation that is infused with care ingredients and loaded with SPF formula. We recommend using SÉRY Satin Flawless Longwear Foundation, it is curated with Hyaluronic Acid and enriched with UVA-UVB filters that cast protection against harmful rays.
Do: If you are someone who blends foundation using a brush then it might be time to switch to blending with a damped beauty blender for a smooth dewy base.
Don’t: Use a Translucent Powder just to set the under eyes. Dab a little amount, don’t swipe. Avoid using it all over the face, otherwise, you might end up having dry skin.
Eye makeup can make or break the look. Perfectly kohl eyes with lifted lashes can accentuate the makeup by adding a glamorous touch to it. Keep the eyes natural and free from the winter blues by using waterproof eye makeup products.
Do: You might relate to using waterproof mascara during summer but are certainly confused about why is it necessary during winter. A waterproof formula is a must because the eyes tend to tear up from the temperature and wind chill.
Don’t: Everyone loves fuller and lifted lashes but be mindful while trying to achieve them. Applying more mascara over the one you’ve been wearing all day is a NO-NO. Before touching up, you must prepare the eyelashes. You may do this by moistening a fresh spoolie brush and combing the lashes before adding the next coat.
Everyone wants to have bold and luscious lips, but the freezy winter is capable of taking that away. Let’s see how we can make our lips stand out in the windy winter.
Do: Ensure to keep those lips hydrated. No one likes chapped and dry lips. Therefore, applying the lip balm and exfoliating them in the morning is highly advisable. Choose the lip balm that has SPF protection.
Don’t: If you are a fan of bold and dark lips don’t opt for liquid matte lips colors because the formulation of such lipstick is majorly intended to give an intense matte effect which is not at all suitable for winter.
Do: Use lipsticks that are infused with the goodness of nourishing ingredients because it lends intense hydration and moisturization required for the lips. We recommend using SÉRY Matte Care Lipstick. Yes, it’s matte but extremely suitable for the winter because it is crafted with the essence of Shea Butter and Vitamin E that lends intense hydration to the lips and gives a moisturized effect.
