Lipstick on dry lips, too much blush and other common winter makeup mistakes
We're sure that every year, shortly before winter, you check whether the styles of your clothes are up-to-date and whether they will be comfortable in frosty weather. Likewise, don't be lazy and check your decorative and care products. Why is it important? If you use the same makeup creams/serums and color schemes as in the warm season, you'll make mistakes.
What should you not do when applying makeup in winter? What exactly prevents you from looking fresh and well-groomed? Find out in the OBOZ.UA article.
1. Excessively dry skin
The key to winter makeup is thorough skin moisturizing. On dry and flaky epidermis, any cosmetics will look untidy: it will emphasize all the irregularities. So, together with your beautician, choose care products rich in vitamins and oils. Apply them to the face, neck, and décolleté about half an hour before applying makeup.
2. Neglecting the primer
This product is an ideal base for makeup. It is applied before foundation or powder. The primer fills pores and fine lines, making the skin smoother and more even. In addition, in winter, it protects against chapping and frostbite. We do not recommend ignoring it if you want to give your face a fresh look.
3. Choosing the wrong shades
In winter, the skin becomes paler than in spring or summer. That's why we recommend choosing a foundation that is one shade lighter than the one you use in the warmer seasons. It should be added that nude makeup in winter makes the face look sickly. Light accents will help to avoid this. For example, line the upper eyelids with a black pencil or apply and blend rich eyeshadow.
4. Dry and unkempt lips
Remember to moisturize your lips regularly (before going out or before going to bed). Lipstick or gloss will look unaesthetic on dry lips. Also note that bitten lips with torn skin are not only ugly, but also increase the risk of infection.
5. Too much blush
Frosty weather often "draws" a natural blush on the cheeks. That is why it is better not to apply blush at all. Otherwise, give preference to light creamy textures. Darker shades will suit darker complexions, and cold pink and peachy shades will suit pale complexions.
