Tips on when to change your foundation for the season
As the seasons change, so do the results we want from our make-up, but when is the right time to pack up our summer foundations and switch to winter-ready foundations?
The answer? When you start to realise that your current foundation isn’t lasting as long on your skin due to the colder weather, or when you see a noticeable change in the weather.
Changing from a summer to a winter foundation is not all about changing your foundation colour or shade. However, the odds are you’ll be a little paler as your summer tan starts to fade – so it’s a great idea to have at least two foundations available, one the right shade for your tanned skin, and one a little lighter. Mixing them together can often produce just the right shade.
However, winter make-up isn’t only about changing your foundation shade. Here are our tips on what to look out for when choosing a foundation for winter:
- Swap your mattifying foundation for a dewy foundation. As shine isn’t a major concern in the winter, you can embrace a more radiant glow without the fear of an oil slick.
- Choose a foundation with adequate hydration, one that will inject your skin with the moisture shot it needs. We love La Prairie Anti-Aging Foundation SPF 15 for its nourishing and protective qualities.
