Win­ter make-up fixes

Make ad­just­ments to your beauty regime to get the best re­sults against the cold.



Very few women can go with­out chang­ing their foun­da­tion from one sea­son to the next. Our skin will go a lit­tle duller and lighter with less ex­po­sure to sun­light. You’ll need a lighter foun­da­tion that will match your new skin tone, prefer­ably one with hy­drat­ing prop­er­ties to sup­ple­ment the dry win­ter wind. The Body Shop Shade Ad­just­ing Drops R320


The eye area is ex­tremely sen­si­tive and takes more strain dur­ing the cold win­ter, mak­ing you teary, which may cause your mas­cara and eye­shadow to run. To pre­vent this, wear an eye­lid primer be­fore ap­ply­ing foun­da­tion, then go over the area again with a set­ting pow­der to soak up ex­cess oil. To com­bat a messy mas­cara sit­u­a­tion wear a wa­ter­proof mas­cara to avoid smudg­ing.

Take a dif­fer­ent ap­proach to high­light­ing in win­ter: look at achiev­ing a sub­tle glow in­stead of a glossy sum­mer­time shine. Layer the glow, use a creamy for­mula first (a creamy blush also works to add warmth) be­cause it won’t dry the skin. Then go over it with a baked pow­der high­lighter to set and en­hance the ef­fect. May­belline Mas­ter Chrome

Erase the no­tion that wa­ter­proof make-up should only be used in the swel­ter­ing sum­mer heat. It’s a beauty myth as win­ter comes with mois­ture of its own. Win­ter rains and mist will wreak havoc on a face. Do your­self a favour and in­vest in a wa­ter­proof make-up ar­se­nal. Get ev­ery­thing, from eye­lin­ers to mas­cara and liq­uid lin­ers. Lancôme Hyp­nôse Wa­ter­proof Mas­cara R500


Win­ter means dry, ashy and itchy skin and who wants that? Cream eye shad­ows and blushes are your win­ter must-haves be­cause they not only last longer, but also don’t set­tle into the creases, in­stead they make the skin look dewy and fresh.
