That means you put away the light foundations and summery eye colors and bring out the oil based moisturizers, protective foundations and matte eye shadows in fall and winter colors like grey and brown.
Winter make up should begin with an oil based day moisturizer which prevents skin from drying out due to the low humidity and cold. At night, it’s important to use a heavier moisturizer with essential vitamins and other skin rejuvenating ingredients immediately after the shower in order to seal in moisture. When you choose a foundation for winter, the matte finishes are more appropriate than shiny bright finishes. The eye shadow colors should reflect the colors in your winter clothing to create a unified and polished look. In addition, puffiness under the eyes which is common in the winter can be downplayed through skillful use of very pale yellow under eye cream.
It’s typical for people to have paler skin in the winter than they do in the summer. Winter make up should be applied in a way that adds color and vitality to your skin tone. In the summer the face is rosier due to sun exposure with its dose of Vitamin D. In the winter, the lack of sun means winter make up should include a light tint that matches skin tone without being obvious. The basic foundation should be one shade lighter in order to make the skin look brighter.
These are just a few tips for the application of winter make up that can make your skin look healthy and glowing despite the darker colder weather.
