Moisturize, moisturize and moisturize
Before applying makeup especially in winters, apply good liquid or cream based moisturizer. You go for a moisturizer which has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing ingredients that combat irritation and flakiness. Put on moisturizers immediately after cleansing. Make sure the moisturizer has been absorbed into your skin before applying your makeup.
Prepare your eyes:
Your eyes can make you cry in winters due to the harsh winds, sleet, and snow. And this leads to runny mascara and eyeshadow. Prime your eyelids with little face powder it absorbs excess oil, which can cause makeup to smudge. You can also use waterproof mascara to prevent smudges and smears. And apply eyeliner and eyeshadow only to the upper lids to prevent these products from moving elsewhere.
Use a right cleanser. If you use a cleanser that’s harsh for your skin, it can cause your skin irritation & redness. And if your cleanser is too gentle, you’ll have to wash your face twice or wash hard just to get a thorough cleanse. The right cleanser won’t strip away your skin’s healthy cells or natural oils. Pick up a right cleanser for yourself according to your skin type. You can also take help from your dermatologist.

Always use cream lipsticks, it moisturizes your lips.
Blush can wake up your complexion. Apply a soft, peachy colour if you have the fair skin tone, terra cotta one if you have a darker skin tone. Apply blush to the apple of your cheeks and blend towards your cheekbones,
Adjust your foundation. Your summer glow is sadly gone, and your skin appears duller in the season’s low lights. So, pick one shade lighter than your usual colour. Use a hydrating formula which contains moisturizing properties, since your skin tends to be drier in the winter.
Makeup in place:
Apply a layer of translucent powder, which help your makeup to keep on your face, which is where you want it.
