Winter-proof your colour cosmetics
With the onset of winter season, give your make-up regime a makeover too. Make-up artist Annalia Zhimomi says maintaining a well-moisturised skin is a necessity
New Delhi: With the onset of winter season, give your make-up regime a makeover too. Make-up artist Annalia Zhimomi says maintaining a well-moisturised skin is a necessity.
After cleansing, toning and moisturising, "the next step is to prepare and prime your skin with a primer so that your foundation is applied smoothly and evenly."
"I would recommend investing in a high quality primer as it makes sure that it lasts longer. It also avoids patchiness, clogging of pores, breakouts and even works in improving the quality of your skin," Zhimomi told IANS.
Women with dry and mature skin should use a hydration primer.
For those who have oily skin or a mix of oily and dry skin should try mattifying primer. For discoloured skin, one can apply colour corrector primer.
Women should be careful while selecting foundation too.
"For dry skin, liquid foundation with dewy effect or a crème based foundation are good. They should be applied with a beauty blender (sponge) as it avoids skin from becoming flaky," she said.
"Oily skin should be tackled with a mattifying light weight foundation and it must be sealed with powder as this will help the make-up to last longer," she added.
Another important tip she shared is foundation should be applied with the help of a buffing brush in circulation motion as it helps minimise pores.
For lips, she says stick to dark rich colours.
"One can go for velvety and berry shades like red berry and plum hues," she said.
