Hello my pumpkins and welcome back!
Today I am going to share with you all of my makeup tips for Fall and Winter. I was invited to a talkshow to share all of those tips but the interview will air in like a month so while we all wait for it to come out, here are the tips:
This is more going to sound like a skin care tip but think like a good skin care routine is a good makeup!
Don’t forget to clean your face because so many pollutants and chemicals accumulate on your skin which makes your skin dirty, this can cause acne and your foundation won’t apply flawlessly. For winter, since it gets colder, your skin becomes more vulnerable, it can easily get irritated and it is dry so I suggest you use a milk-based cleanser or an oil based cleanser. Those two formulas are very gentle on the skin and won’t irritate your skin!

You can also exfoliate your face using a gentle facial scrubs. This will help clean your face more intensively and deeply.

Don’t skip on your moisturizer, even if you have an oily skin. For your foundation/concealer to not look cakey or patchy and to look smooth, it is important for you to moisturize your face and under eyes. If you have an oily skin, you can use a moisturizer that is water-based, it will help you control the shine and at the same time, keep your skin smooth.

For Dry skin: Timeless Skin Facial Moisturizer by St. Ives
If a simple moisturizer is not enough to hydrate your skin, you can use an overnight treatment or a facial mask.
Don’t forget to moisturize your lips, they can get very dry too. Also, it’s a good tip if you intend to wear a matte liquid lipstick!
Stay away from powder foundation, they can make your face look dull and cakey. Plus, any powder soak up the oil of your skin, this is ideal for summer, but in winter, it will take away the only thing that makes you glow!
It’s better to use a liquid foundation with a formula that is convenient for your skin type: if you have an oily skin, use a mattifying foundation, for example.

For a natural extra glow, you can use a liquid/cream highlighter that matches your skin tone. A liquid/cream highlighter will give you this natural dewy look, unlike a powder highlighter.

Don’t skip on your bronzer/blush because in winter, you lose the color you got in summer and you look more or else, pale. Therefore, the bronzer will give back color to your face. I suggest a cream bronzer because it makes your skin look more fresh and youthful.

After all of these cream products, it’s better to set your makeup with a translucent powder. This loose powder will only lock in your makeup, making sure the products don’t move around and it makes your makeup last longer. This product is obviously a powder, but unless powder foundations, a translucent powder does not add any coverage and prevents your concealer from creasing.

If a loose powder is not enough, you can set your makeup with a setting spray!
