I would like to thank Amritkaur for sending the Winter Express to my station.

So let's start with today's topic!

Winter is here and I must tell you that I just loveee Winters! Chilling breeze on your face, loads of cloth, holding piping hot coffee/chai in your hand and sitting under the blanket are a few things I enjoy in this weather. Winters also give us thee chance to experiment a lot with our makeup and bring out all the dark and hidden colours.
I have a few tips and tricks up my sleeves and would love to share them with you all. These are just a few basic things that we sometimes forget or miss but they can make a lot of difference in the way we look.

So let's get started!!
  • The most important and basic requirement for a good makeup is your happy face. Our skin becomes very dry during winters and some of the face cleansers make them even drier. So, swap your cleanser with a gel/cream based one. They help retain the moisture and helps the makeup to glide on smoothly.

  • Moisturise your face as required! We are always worried that our skin is feeling dry and we tend to go overboard with moisturising. On the other hand, use only required amount of moisturiser. Use a regular one all over your face and then a heavy one only for the places that needs it like nose, cheek. Over moisturising will not let your makeup sit properly, thus giving you an uneven base.

  • Mix some facial oils with your foundation and go for a lightweight one. You need to understand what and how much makeup your skin actually needs and go along with it.

  • Use cream based makeup products instead of the powder ones. Powder ones tends to make our face look dry and lifeless.

  • It is time to bring out your red, plum, maroon and dark lip shades! These just look gorgeous in this weather. Just go bold!

  • Our cheeks go red due to the chilly winds. So do not overdo with the blush! Use natural blush colours to make your cheek look all healthy and glowy.

  • Play with your eyes! Experiment with blue, black, plum and green eyeliners and kajal. Go for defined and extended liner looks.

I hope these tips are helpful and you can enjoy your makeup and the weather together. Don't hide your face under the caps but make them stand out by applying a few of these suggestions.
Do let me know if you found any of these tips useful.

Now, it is time for the departure of the Express train. So meet the Winter Express next at Zainab's station. Stay hooked to this journey with the Winter Express!

Until then...
Ciao!!
