As the temperature starts to drop, it’s time to switch up your makeup routine. Here are some tips to help you stay looking your best during the colder months.

In cold weather, our skin gets dry and flaky for a number of reasons: low humidity, windburn, central heating, and more contact with water (washing hands, snow). So, the key is to use makeup that will protect and hydrate your skin. Here are my top tips for keeping your makeup look fresh in winter.

This is very important to the skincare routine because cold weather can make your skin dry and dull, so you need to hydrate it before putting any makeup on. First, I recommend using a good body lotion all over your skin, but pay extra attention to hands and elbows that are even drier in winter. After that, focus on dull areas like cheeks, chin, and around the nose with a hydrating serum or moisturizing balm. If you have redness or broken capillaries on your cheeks, you can use a primer with a green tint to cancel the redness. Now it’s time for foundation, concealer, and powder if you need to.

Why does my makeup look bad in the winter?

The colder months can be tough on your skin. Your skin can become dry, cracked, and inflamed between the dry air and harsh winds. Unfortunately, this is also when your makeup may not look as good as it does in the summer. We’ll discuss some of the reasons why your makeup may not be looking its best in winter and offer tips on how to overcome these challenges.

When the temperatures drop, and the air gets dry, your makeup is more likely to look “cakey” or flaky. So, what’s going on? Well, humidity keeps our skin moist and hydrated — it ensures that our skin doesn’t lose too much water and become dry and scaly (like a snake). But as we all know, humidity drops significantly during the winter months.

Dehydration of your skin from cold air and indoor heating is a leading cause of dryness and flaking — it can even lead to eczema flare-ups. In addition, many of us experience “winter itch” as our skin gets drier and more cracked with time spent indoors. This is why it’s so important to use a hydrating moisturizer or face oil to prevent your skin from getting too dry and conditioned with heavy creams that will exacerbate the problem.
