Preparing Your Canvas

Before diving into the makeup tips for dry skin, it's crucial to prepare your skin properly and here is how you can do that. 

Start with a nourishing face wash for women, preferably a vitamin C face wash because it suits all skin types. This will help remove impurities without stripping your skin of essential moisture. Follow up with a hydrating serum, such as a halal serum. It will provide your skin with an extra layer of moisture, making it a perfect base for makeup. 

Once your cleansing and moisturising is complete, make sure you apply your primer before you begin your base makeup.Your primer will not only make your makeup last longer, but it will also blur out fine lines and wrinkles. 

The Foundation for a Flawless Look

Opt for a foundation that is specifically designed for dry skin. Look for keywords like "hydrating" or "moisturising" on the label. Apply it using a damp makeup sponge for an even, dewy finish. If you have extremely dry skin, and you need an added moisture boost, mix a drop of your favourite facial oil with your foundation. This will give your skin a luminous glow.

If you want a sheer and natural coverage then you can use a damp beauty blender to blend your foundation.But if you want full coverage then make sure you blend your foundation using a foundation brush.

Locking in Moisture

Like mentioned earlier, using a hydrating primer is essential for dry skin in winter. It creates a barrier between your skin and makeup, preventing moisture loss. But make sure you apply it before your foundation. 

Opt for cream-base makeup products when it comes to picking your blush and highlighter. Cream-based blush and highlighter products work wonders on dry skin. They blend seamlessly and give your skin a healthy, radiant flush.

Eye-Catching Eye Makeup

Invest in a quality eye cream because dry skin around the eyes can make makeup look patchy. Apply an eye cream rich in hyaluronic acid to keep the area hydrated. You can try the Iba Advanced Activs Triple Effect Eye Creme which helps in fighting against dark circles, wrinkles and preventing fine lines. 

Apart from eye care, opt for cream eyeshadows as they provide moisture to your eyelids and prevent creasing. Apply them with your fingers for an effortless look. Once your eye makeup is complete, you can then set it with a compact powder or a loose powder so that your cream based eye makeup products last longer.

Lips That Speak Volumes

Begin with exfoliation and Moisturisation before applying lipstick. You can gently exfoliate your lips and follow it up with a thick layer of lip balm. This prevents chapped lips and ensures a smooth canvas for your lip colour. After these two steps, you can easily apply a long stay matte lipstick or a transfer proof lipstick with ease.Becauses the lip scrub and lip balm will keep your lips hydrated no matter what type of lipstick you apply.

If you have extremely dry lips then choose creamy, hydrating lipsticks over matte ones in the winter. They keep your lips soft and supple throughout the day. 

Setting It All in Place

Finish your winter makeup routine with a setting spray to lock in moisture and help your makeup stay put all day. You can also use your setting spray in between your makeup steps for makeup to last longer and look flawless. Your makeup setting spray also makes your makeup absolutely waterproof and sweatproof.

Don't Forget Sun Protection

Yes, you still need sunscreen in winter! Look for a sunscreen lotion that provides both UVA and UVB protection. Apply it as the final step in your makeup routine to shield your skin from harsh sun rays.

You can try the Iba Invisible Sunscreen SPF 50 which has broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection. This sunscreen has a non greasy gel formula which gives your skin a beautiful matte finish without leaving any white cast. This sunscreen has been infused with witch hazel, aloe vera, and coconut water which makes it a perfect choice for all skin types.

Remember, it's all about prepping your skin, choosing the right products, and maintaining hydration throughout your makeup routine.
