Make Up

Winter-ise your makeup!

Along with your skincare routine, winter calls for a change in your make up palette too. Follow the runway trends to winter-ise your look this season!

Winter Warpaint:

Make-up for winters basically involves a little bit of common sense – the idea is to use crème-based stuff rather than drying powders. Even make-up shades can move from the light to the dark for smouldering winter nights! Take a cue:

  • Use a Hydrating Foundation—If you’ve been using a light or tinted moisturiser, the winters are a good time to switch to using a heavier, cream-ier foundation instead. Look for a foundation with moisturizing ingredients and botanical extracts to keep your skin hydrated and fresh. Try this Natio Natural Skin Foundation
  • Switch to Cream-Based Blush—Powder blush is no friend of dry skin. If your skin gets drier in colder temperatures, consider switching to a cream or gel blush—creams deliver dewy-soft color, while gels provide a quick-drying tint. Try this Lip And Cheek Stain from The Body Shop
  • Get Wine-Stained Lips—You know what works beautifully with the cold season? Mulled wine, of course, But you know what works even better for your winter look – deep, rich, wine-coloured lips. This winter, true red and shades of cranberry and wine are top choices. Use a cream formula lipstick rather than matte, and add a dab of lip gloss on top of your lipstick for a rich, glossy finish. We like SUGAR Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick – Poison Ivy.
  • Create Smoking Eyes—Not having to contend with sweat and monsoons to keep from looking like a raccoon, winters are the best time to experiment with eye make-up. This season, take a cue from the fashion lords, and go smokey. Don’t restrict yourself to black – try brown, mauve, or even khaki (as seen, in the latest Dior and YSL campaign) and neon (as seen, on Kareena Kapoor), to create smouldering eyes. Our picks are YSL’s Pure Chromatics Eye Shadow Palette 10 and Christian Dior’s 5 Couleurs in 308 Khaki Design.

Sneak tip: When choosing a moisturiser for the winter, look for products that come in a jar rather than a pump. Apparently, a pump or pour bottle has a higher water content and PH base that can dry out skin. This explains why all the rich, indulgent body butters come in jars, and not out of a pump!
