Is your Foundation Shade Too Dark for Winter?

Have you noticed that in the summer you get darker therefore you need a darker foundation? So when winter hits, the make-up you bought in the summer no longer matches your skin tone. Throughout the year, our make-up needs change just as our wardrobe needs change. Winter is a notoriously hard time of year for the face which is often the only part of our bodies that is exposed to the elements. Foundation should be considered to be your second skin, only better, so using the right tools can help keep your face looking fresh and natural through the coldest winter months. Today, we’ll take a look at some tips for choosing and applying the best foundation for you in the winter. During winter, the skin tone can be quite different than it was during the summer months. In order to keep your face looking natural, always choose a foundation that closely matches your skin tone throughout the year.

Dr. Wright’s Tip

In winter, our skin tone tends to be at its palest, so make sure to test a foundation before you buy it. Try a small amount on your skin and let it sit for a couple of minutes and look at the results in the best light available. Testing is important even if you feel you’ve got a perfect match in the bottle, because the natural acid in our skin can change the tint of the foundation. If you tend to experience dryer skin during the winter months, try out a foundation that advertises hydrating properties.  Also make sure to watch your concealer. With the change of foundation color, it may lead to a change in concealer which could be pricey. Who really wants to buy two shades of foundation or concealer that can only be used in certain seasons? The concealer should also match your skin tone and it can help hide the appearance of dark circles under the eyes or red blemishes. Call Skin MD and Beyond today, and book for a foundation consult. Our make-up artists would be pleased to help you find the right foundation color for you within our PREVIA COSMETIC LINE.
