We know how tough it must be to tackle dry skin concerns, but applying makeup on dry skin can be a true nightmare in winters! Makeup can leave your skin with flaky patches and redness, and as much as you don’t want it to cling to your skin, it looks cakey and poorly executed. But let us assure you, your skin can achieve a completely smooth and luminous base if you work with the right products, use the proper skin care and follow the right routine to disguise those pesky dry patches on your face.
Just follow a few home remedies and skincare tips, along with using the best makeup for dry skin in winters, and you’ll exactly know how to slay your Winter makeup look if you suffer from dry skin concerns!
1) Start with Cleansing
We would recommend always starting with a fresh canvas which is the key to a flawless base. Next, wash your face, no matter what skin type you have. Cleansing your face is a crucial step in your makeup routine. It will help to slough off all kinds of dirt and dead skin cells that may have built upon the surface of your skin. Next, use a gentle cleanser like the Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW 3 in 1 Deep cleansing Skin Brightening Facial Foam ideal for dry skin and leaves the skin glowing and nourished.
2) Moisturisation is the key.
After the face cleansing, hydrate your skin well, focusing on the driest areas. Moisturisation should be a part of your everyday skincare routine, especially with dry skin types. Also, double up the benefits by using one that has SPF too! We recommend using the Lotus Herbals WHITEGLOW Skin Brightening Deep Moisturising Cream SPF 20 that delivers extreme hydration and nourishment.
3) Prep your Base with Primer
Primer is a miraculous product for dry skin needs that bestows your skin with a smoother base to set your makeup for the rest of the day. Before applying your foundation, apply a layer of the Proedit Silk Touch Luminizing Primer all over your face to hydrate and prep your skin.
4) Choose a Hydrating Foundation
When choosing a foundation for dry skin, opt for a liquid one that has a creamy consistency since matte & thick foundations can aggravate the patches even further. On the other hand, the Ecostay Intensive Serum Foundation has a weightless formula with a nourishing, age-defying formula covering all flaws without settling into the fine lines.
5) Fix & Set your Makeup
Avoid using setting powders and compacts if you have dry skin, as powders tend to look cakey. Instead, use a setting spray like the Finish-Up Dewy Makeup Fixer And Mist to set and keep your makeup in place for hours.
6) Get that Luminous Glow with Highlighter
Get yourself a radiant glow with a liquid illuminator. Dot the liquid highlighter above your cheekbones, on the bridge of your nose and onto your cupid’s bow. The Lotus ECOSTAY Illuminating Stick is the perfect pick that goes on smoothly and sets right away for an instant and lit glow from within. It enhances your overall complexion, defines your features and is available in four different shades to suit all skin types.
7) End with some Lip Care
Along with having dry skin, your lips also tend to look and feel extremely dry and chapped. While matte lipsticks look super chic and defined, they can aggravate lip dryness even further. That doesn’t necessarily mean skipping a matte lip colour but do some lip prep before the application.
Start by using the Colorkick Exfoliating & Hydrating Lip Sugar SPF 20 that heals dry and chapped lips & also works on enhancing the lip’s colour. Then, top it up with the Ecostay Butter Matte Lipstick that delivers a gorgeous buttery finish to the lips.
Now that you’re thorough with all the skincare hacks and makeup tricks, we’re sure that you’ll get through this winter season tackling all the dry skin woes like a pro!
