Are you ready for winter? Follow these make-up trends to keep your glow intact

Are you ready for winter? Follow these make-up trends to keep your glow intact Pallabi Dey Purkayastha Unlike the other three seasons, winter calls for a separate make-up kit altogether. | TNN | Oct 26, 2017, 18:08 IST Now we all know that winter, even by Mumbai standards, is a time when our skin loses its moisture and feels stretchy. Unlike the other three seasons, winter calls for a separate make-up kit altogether. To make things simple, we bring you a list of six make-up essentials that you should keep handy when it gets too cold outside. Moisturise before make-up: It is criminal to put even a tinge of foundation or BB cream without moisturising your skin first, which is highly dehydrated around this time of the year. Add a nice and preferably heavy (if you have very dry skin) day cream or moisturiser to your beauty regime. Once applied, wait for five minutes for the cream to settle into your skin. Lip balms to the rescue: Before your lips could take the weight of your lip liners and lipsticks, prepare them with a good quality lip balm . As it is, lips tend to get extra chapped during the cold season. Ditch foundations for BB creams: For a daily look, be it at work or dinner dates with friends, you can stick to a light to medium coverage beauty benefit (BB) cream. Foundations, when it gets cold, makes your face look cakey and the skin tends to emit white flakes too, which could prove to be very embarrassing in a social gathering. Move over concealer sticks: While concealing dark circles or blemished skin is of paramount importance to some girls, opting for a liquid-based concealer is a better option on a cold day. It not only helps to camouflage your flaws well, but also keeps the moisture level in place. Time for blush, bronzers and highlighters: Although the next three months are going to be mostly dry and gloomy, adding a hint of shimmer could up your make-up game. Be it a coral-hued blush or a silver highlighter , add it to your make-up must-haves list and shimmer away! Bright, off-beat lip colours: Since you are skipping quite a few steps as far as make-up is concerned, it is only fair that you balance it out with a rush of bright lips— neon pinks, tangerines and even the wackiest shade of purple. Remember Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's bold lip colours at the red carpet of an international film festival? Now is the perfect time to take cues from her.
