Winter make-up isn’t only about changing your foundation shade.
Here are a few tips on what to look out for when choosing a foundation for winter months:
Add some shine by swapping out your mattifying foundation for a dewy foundation, embracing a more radiant glow.
Choose a foundation with adequate hydration such as hyaluronic acid, adding the moisture shot it needs. I am in love with the Oxygenix Foundations. It offers hydration, it is buildable, has an SPF 30, and looks flawless throughout the day.
When we leave the house, we usually want to look good. That is why we spend so much time getting ready. We pick out the right outfit, wear the right makeup, do our hair, and with time to spare, we even tweeze our eyebrows. The list is endless, and for some of us, the process steals hours from our lives. The good news, however, is that you might be able to speed the whole thing up. It's as simple as knowing your skin tone.
There are two basic skin tones -- cool and warm. You can decide what you are by investigating the color of your veins as seen on the underside of your arm. If the veins show through blue, you've got blue or white undertones, meaning you're a cool skin tone. Those with green veins have yellow undertones and are therefore warm. But there are much more specific descriptions as well.
Think of your skin tone like a natural foundation. It's your starting point. Everything else is determined by that foundation. You can use that starting point to help you pick out everything from the right makeup to the right nail polish, and if you do it correctly, you'll be amazed by the results.
When in doubt, hire an expert. This is a unique skill that makeup artist offer, and you will want to take full advantage of. Plus, it's fun to watch the magic happen. It is our mission to find the perfect foundation for your skin tone and type. Your foundation will be seamless, time saving, and you will look flawless throughout your day.
