Winter Makeup Hacks
20th Jan 2023
Winter can be harsh on your skin and makeup. Cold temperatures, dry air, and harsh winds can leave your skin feeling dry, flaky, and chapped, while your makeup may smudge, smear, and fade. However, with a few simple hacks, you can keep your skin and makeup looking fresh and flawless all winter long.
Invest in a good primer. A primer creates a barrier between your skin and makeup, helping to protect your skin from harsh winter elements and preventing your makeup from smudging or melting. Mehron’s Velvet Finish Primer is infused with ingredients your skin will love like Aloe Vera Extract and Vitamin C. Another great option is Hydro Prep PRO™, a vegan hyaluronic serum that instantly hydrates the skin. This professional formula absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave a greasy or sticky residue. Hydro Prep Pro™ is intensely hydrating with hyaluronic acid attracts that up to 1,000 times its weight in water - helping to hydrate and plump the skin. Vitamin B5, Pacific Sea Kelp, & Allantoin help to soothe and condition the skin.
Opt for cream-based products. Cream-based products are more hydrating than powder-based products and will help to keep your skin looking plump and healthy. Mehron’s CHEEK Creams and L.I.P Creams are lightweight, buildable, and won’t dry your skin out in these chilly months.
Use a setting spray. A setting spray is a great way to lock in your makeup and prevent it from smudging or transferring. Try Mehron’s Barrier Spray™ to keep your look set through the harshest of conditions.
Remove everything with a good makeup remover that’s gentle on the skin. Mehron's Makeup Remover is formulated to be gentle on the skin, making it suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is free of harsh chemicals and irritants, which can cause dryness, redness, and irritation.
With these winter makeup hacks, you can keep your skin and makeup looking beautiful all winter long. Remember to keep your skin hydrated, use a primer, and invest in long-wearing makeup products. Don't forget to also protect your skin from the cold and wind by covering your face and hands with a scarf or gloves, and by drinking plenty of water to stay hydrated from the inside out!
