Makeup to Beat Dull Winter Skin
Say goodbye to dry and dull winter skin! We’re all feeling a bit grey, dry and dull this winter over here at BeautEssential HQ. Instead of wishing our year away dreaming of summer holidays and sun kissed bodies, we’re embracing this season and switching up our makeup bags to get the faux glow! We’ve rounded up the team’s top picks for getting through these winter months to get great winter skin.
KARAJA INSTANT GLOW PRIMER NO 1
Perfect the base and everything else will fall into place. This primer gives a beautiful dewy glow to skin before you go in with your foundation. Thanks to the pearl pigments designed to softly diffuse the light. The sheer formula is also hydrating with Vitamin E and Jojoba oil to combat dry skin. This is one to get you looking healthy again, even on no makeup days.
NOTE LUMINOUS MOISTURISING FOUNDATION SPF15
Now that party season is behind us, we’re shunning heavier matte foundations for lighter formulas like the NOTE Luminous Moisturising Foundation. The satin finish is perfect to smooth over any dry skin patches instead of highlighting them. Plus, the formula contains sweet almond and macadamia oil for moisturising and anti-oxidant properties. The natural coverage will keep your skin looking luminous and healthy for your everyday makeup looks.
HE-SHI FACE AND BODY TANNING GEL
The lack of sunshine and daylight hours are leaving us feeling a bit grey, pale and tired looking. And we’re forever thankful to fake tan for giving our skin a little out of season bronzed pick me up. The He-Shi Face and Body Tanning Gel is a perfect pick due to the multipurpose use for both the face and body. This one is highly moisturising, making it ideal for dried out winter skin. The “see where it goes” formula is quickly and easily absorbed due to the incredibly light and smooth texture, so you won’t be left standing in the cold waiting to dry off.
J.CAT LUXE PRO POWDER IN PEARL LUMINIZER
What do you do when you need to set your face to ensure it lasts all day, but you don’t want to look matte and flat? Enter this beauty: the J.Cat Luxe Pro Powder, especially the Pearl Luminizer shade. This silky soft and ultra fine loose powder can be used to set your makeup so it won’t budge. More importantly, it does it without looking cakey thanks to the fine pearl pigments that add a natural looking healthy glow to the skin.
LA GIRL SKIN ILLUMINATOR
Did you really think we’d make it through this list without mentioning highlighter? We see it as an essential makeup step all year round, but your lackluster winter skin is craving it even more. We’ve picked out the multi-purpose LA Girl Skin Illuminator as the top choice. The BeautEssential team love using theirs as a liquid highlighter on the high points of the face, alone all over the face for radiant no make up days and mixed into foundation for a glow turbo boost.
