7 Beauty Hacks To Try When Applying Makeup In Winter

To maintain bronzy beauty routines, you have to know which beauty products and other things to take into consideration. The answer will be different from everyone as everyone’s skin is different based on diet, skin tone, skin type, and age. There are certain hacks you can try to your makeup routine to help your skin look best in winter.

Let’s see the 7 tips to keep your skin happy this winter.

Hack 1: Exfoliate

Skin suffers a lot in the colder months due to dry hair which causes breakouts. Using clarifying products can block the natural tendency and using them can actually add the problem of drying your skin. You can use hydrating exfoliate cleansers which will help you nourish, protect and heal your skin leaving it glowing and hydrated.

Hack 2: Use Oil Instead Of Cream To Moisturize & Add Oil Primer To Mix

During winter, our skin needs to get more hydration. Moisturizing creams are heavy and can block the pores. Instead, we can use oil blended with essential oils. Using thick and nourishing oil will leave the skin with oil finish better than heavier oils can.

After using oil to moisturize, applying oil on the skin is important as its acts as a moisturizer. Talking about oil primer, it helps to create a perfectly even canvas on which to build your makeup. Use appropriate oil primers to your skin before applying makeup, so you get a glowing and gorgeous finish.

Hack 3: Replace Foundation With Tinted Moisturizer

There are various options of hydrating foundations you can use. But a lot of them can be heavy.  Use a tinted moisturizer that will hydrate and brighten your skin giving you solid coverage. Make sure you are applying the product with a brush to let it absorb more evenly in the skin.

Hack 4: Use Cream Concealer

Stick concealers are tough to use except when they're warmed up, and this can cause your sensitive undereye area to stretch while you blend the product. You can use a more soothing formula which is lightweight, creamy and has really good coverage.

Hack 5: Use Cream- Blush, Bronzer And Highlighter Instead Of Powders

It’s time to bust out all the cream-based makeup products. You can apply with fingers or a makeup brush. Swipe the bronzer in the hollows of your cheeks and along your hairline, the sides of your nose and down your neckline. Blush should be applied to the apples of your cheeks and blended back toward your temples, while the highlighter is applied to the bridge of your nose, your cupid's bow and between your eyebrows.

Hack 6: Use Brown Mascara And Moisturize Your Lips With Tinted Lip Balm.

It’s a blessing to have a naturally glowing darker skin. You can understand the battle of pale skin during the winter. One little hack you can do is grab a brown mascara rather than black, which will be softer on your not-so-tan skin.

Lips get dried very often in the winter season due to lack of moisturizer. So, you need a tinted lip treatment to allow your lips to soak, leaving them to feel soft. 

Hack 7: Set Your Makeup With Hydrating Essential Oil Spray Over Powders

Its recommended setting your makeup with a translucent powder to keep in place. But in the high cold area, you can try using hydrating essential oil mist to protect the products applied on the skin. This will help lock in your look as well as sooth and moisturize, leaving you with a subtle, dewy glow.


Whether you are using all of these hacks as one or taking the ones that feel genuine to you, they are sure to help get you and your skin through the dry dull skin challenges still feeling beautiful and glowing!
