1. Maximize Moisture. Foundation can stick to dry patches of skin and accentuate them not pretty. To help parched skin, mix equal parts moisturizer and foundation, then apply.
2. Brighten Up. Fight wintertime drabness with a bolder than usual blush or eye shadow. A Bonus to experimenting in the cold weather: Makeup won’t be subject to humidity and sweat, so it’s likelier to stay put.
3. Troubleshoot Redness. Camouflage all over redness with a green-tinted moisturizer, like Physicians Formula Redness Correcting Moisturizer.
For an on the go fix (best for smaller areas like the nose), take Smashbox Photo Finish Color Correcting Adjust Foundation Primer with you, and pat it over trouble spots. Shop Now for Physicians Formula Powder Palette Color Corrective Powders, Multi-colored Corrector, Green.
4. Be Carefree with Liner:
In the A.M., prep for tearing eyes by roughly lining your upper lash line and then smearing the liner up to the crease. It will look like a veil of color. If you touch it or mess it up during the day, it’ll blend right in. Try Almay Intenser i-color Eyeliner.
5. Treat Lips:
A lip color with built in moisturizers helps keep chapping at bay. Two to try: Cover Girl Nature Luxe Gloss Balm and Fresh Sugar Passion Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15. Both have SPF to boot.
