Just read on this post to find out the Makeup basics for dry skin during winters.

Prep your skin


Most important step is to infuse skin with sufficient moisturizer so it stays smooth Apply facial serum follow with rich cream right after you get out of the shower to lock in moisture. Wait a few minutes to let your skin absorb the cream. Now apply a primer that should be creamy.



Now use concealer only where it is required, like on under eye circles and blemishes. Prefer a creamy formula based concealer if you have dry skin, and make sure that shade should match your skin tone. Apply in little stripes with a pointed concealer brush. Then blend using your ring finger for the lightest touch.



Take foundation that should suits your dry skin like Maybelline Dream Liquid Mousse Foundation and draws thick lines down cheekbones, the sides of your nose and above brows, and blend with your fingers. You can also apply it with the help of foundation brush or beauty blender. Gently blend it in rolling motion and cover your blemish and redness. If redness or blemish is still poking through, go back and hide it with an extra layer of foundation.

If you want a convincing, hydrated glow then you can apply a pearly highlighter underneath foundation.

Warm your face up

Pick a liquid bronzer and dust apply it all over your face, including the top of the cheeks and the forehead, the bridge of your nose and chin with a miniature stippling brush.

Let it Blush now

Try a cream blush for that glow-from-within effect. Apply to the apples of your cheeks, and then blend the color up toward your temples with your fingers.


Apply Shimmery Eye Base & Shadow

Let your eye lit up in winter. Apply a wash of sheer, shimmery cream shadow from lash lines to brow bones using your pointer finger. If you have fair skin then you should use silvery white shade. For medium to dark skin tones, opt for a champagne color instead.

Let your lips do all the talking now

If your lips are dry or at all chapped, gently buff with a damp washcloth and apply lip balm. Run a piece of ice over your lips before slicking on gloss to help color last all day and prevent it from bleeding.
