As the season changes, so should your makeup

As the seasons switch, so does our make-up. When that summer glow goes, we might want more coverage, and as with our wardrobes, we can gravitate towards richer palettes and textures with our beauty look. Regardless of trends and personal preference, with the temperatures dropping, winter skin can instantly become dehydrated – a primary concern for make-up preparation. Our makeup experts remind us that your make-up will never look the way you want it to without a good skincare regime. They recommend exfoliating twice a week in addition to applying serum and moisturiser daily. Choose a hydrating base Often during the summer, when we are glowing and tanned, a lightweight foundation is enough, whereas in winter we tend to look for a foundation with a little more coverage. Look for a base that not only naturally exfoliates, but offers a buildable yet breathable semi-matte coverage without feeling drying on the skin. Faux your glow If you do go for a fuller, more matte looking foundation but you still want that glow, you can use highlighters to add it back in a natural-looking way. Buff onto the highs of your cheekbones, a tiny bit on apples of the cheeks – under or over blusher – and anywhere else if you want a dewy radiance. Pick softer colours to suit your skin type If you want to add some richness to your usual look and go for a softer lip colour, you need to find the right shade that works for your skin tone. For skin tones with a pink base, go for pinker deep plum and berry shades. For warmer, more yellow-toned skins, try a dark colour with brown or orange tones to them. Neutral skin tones suit either. Deeper palettes also work beautifully on the eyes, but choose one area to focus on to keep your overall look clean and modern. Switch up your textures Try to change up the textures of your make-up a little, too. So, if you are going for a matte foundation, add some sheen to your eyes or lips whereas if you are going for highlighted skin, go for a matte lip. Think of this as wearing a mini dress with flats, or a chunky knit with heels – beauty, too is all about balance. ………………………………………………… Image Courtesy: Denit Slava
