Beauty & Style
For the winter season, dry and flakey skin is bound to occur with the change in temperature. We can end up being overwhelmed with taking care of our skin and making it look as fresh and natural as possible.
With the change in temperature, the same summer foundation routine might not work the same way. The dry and harsh climate can make your skin look tired and dull. Changing out your foundation can do wonders for your complexion, a hydrating and moisture rich foundation can keep your skin looking lively all day.
Go for foundations that are meant for dry skin or promise a dewy finish. Matte foundations will give you a very cakey and unnatural appearance since dry patches will appear more prominent. An important tip is to always prep your skin with a moisturizer with SPF before your foundation application, apply it and wait 5 minutes before apply any makeup to ensure the moisture has sunk into your skin.
Here is our top 5 foundation picks for the winter season!
