Do you struggle to pick the right makeup for your wedding, especially in winters?

So, if you want to look like you just came out of the salon till the last wedding photograph, focusing on a smooth base is crucial. Once you have aced the pre-makeup steps, you can easily apply makeup to achieve flawless skin. This is your guide to radiant and non-cakey makeup if you have an upcoming winter wedding.

Skincare Tips from Experts
You must have heard of trending Korean skincare routines, which focus on cleansing and moisturising. Its fame traces back to getting radiant and flawless-looking skin throughout the year.
As a winter bride-to-be, you must imbibe these habits before the wedding –
1. Kickstart with Cleansing
Your skin attracts impurities and dust from the atmosphere. Hence, it is vital to remove all gunk from your face. For oily or combination skin, use a gel or water-based cleanser. For dry skin, use a cream-based cleanser.
The infamous Korean skincare routine advises double-cleanse for best results. Femica promotes a clean and efficient skincare routine so everyone can look their best, even in the coldest weddings.
2. Toning is Essential for Tight Skin
A toner helps to eliminate any traces of impurities left behind after cleansing. Additionally, it helps shrink pores and gives a smooth appearance to your skin.
3. Serums for That Dewy Glow
Apply AM and PM serums to give an extra boost to further glowing skin. These active acids help reduce signs of ageing and boost skin tightening.
You can use hyaluronic acid, vitamin C and niacinamide during the day. At night, you can use retinol-infused face and eye creams. Retinol is the holy grail for getting rid of wrinkles.
4. A Dollop of Moisturiser for a Supple Bounce in Your Skin
After your face absorbs all the serums, finish your skincare with a moisturiser. Moisturisers act as a barrier between your skin and the environment. Thus, there is the prevention of moisture loss, rehydration and enhancement of the skin to hold water.
5. Keep Calm and Exfoliate
You can exfoliate skin once or twice a week to remove dead cells. Regular exfoliation will lead to bright and glowing skin. If you spend a lot of time outside, you can scrub your face thrice a week to reduce tan.
Pro-tip: Use soft hands to scrub because the scrub beads may irritate the skin layer.
6. Start the Day with a Smile and End it with a Sheet Mask!
Chemical products often strip off the skin’s moisture. So, after cleaning and scrubbing, you can apply a hydrating sheet mask to rejuvenate the skin.
Pre-Makeup Routine with Femica
A pre-makeup routine ensures a smooth canvas, so the makeup can glide on your skin smoothly. You can also achieve a flawless base by applying a hydrating serum after your regular CTM routine. Femica skincare products come in a range for dry, oily and combination skin.
You can choose from mild to heavy serums depending on the choice of your makeup base. However, ensure that your serum is rich in nourishing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or vitamin E. These ingredients keep moisture locked in the layers of your skin.
Next, use a hydrating primer if you have dry skin and wait for 1-2 minutes before applying makeup. Our Femica makeup products are cruelty-free and environment-friendly, which makes them safe for your skin.
1. Foundation for the Perfect Base
You can pick a water-based foundation to achieve a smooth, dewy makeup finish. It feels light on the skin and does not lead to cracks or clumping.
Pro-tip: Use a damp beauty blender to blend the foundation for a smooth finish. After 10-15 seconds of application, dab it on your face to remove any excess product.
2. Conceal Those Dark Circles Like a Pro
Next, apply a concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone. Set it with a setting powder and use a setting spray to fix the products. You can choose your perfect concealer shade from our range of Femica makeup products.
3. Go for a Hydrating Lipstick
Regular matte lipsticks without moisture can lead to chapped lips. Finish your look by going for a hydrating lipstick that is rich in vitamin E and hyaluronic acid to prevent any chapping and dryness.
4. A Hairstyle to Turn Heads
It can be a difficult task to set a bun uptight or keep those highlighted hairs in a fixed shape. If you want your hairdo to stay put till the last selfie, invest in Femica haircare products. You can find hairsprays, hair setting equipment, hair curlers, etc., to achieve your vision.
