Makeup that stands up to winter

Despite the wind, the snow and the cold, it is possible to make it to the office or an appointment without having your foundation crack and your mascara run. Here are some tips and tricks for keeping your makeup looking impeccable despite drastic weather changes.

The cold season

During the cold season, skin reddens and dries up as soon as we step foot outside. The first must-have is a good hydrating cream enriched with SPF (yes, even in the winter!). Next, for a smooth complexion, use long-lasting makeup, and to help absorb excess oil, opt for a compact powder. Some top picks include, Lise Watier’s Mineral Compact Powder specially formulated with tourmaline, vitamins A and E and camomile extract for a velvety, natural finish, or Marcelle’s Quad Pressed Powder, perfect for evening out your skin tone and sculpting and defining your features thanks to its four handy shades.

Eyes

For eye makeup that doesn’t run or rub off, your best bet is a waterproof crayon and mascara. Some recommended picks include CoverGirl’s Liquiline Blast Eyeliner and LashBlast Volume Blasting Mascara for high-volume eyelashes, or L’Oréal’s Voluminous Mascara. In addition to being waterproof, these three products promise a long-lasting finish that won’t wear off.

Lips

Seeing as your lips are your face’s most sensitive feature and considering their intolerance to extreme cold, it is crucial that you keep them hydrated to prevent chapping. Avoid licking them and instead of applying your regular lipstick, opt for a more hydrating lip balm. A few excellent balms that are vegetable oil based include Biotherm’s Lip Butter, a hydrating balm that softens and plumps lips, and Clarins’ Hydraquench Moisture Replenishing Lip Balm, a refreshing gel that soothes dry, chapped and damaged lips.
