In the winter months we tend to cover up a little more, and we’re not just talking about clothing layers. As it turns out, believe it or not, this habit to bundle up transfers over to our beauty routine as well. We wear thicker foundations with more coverage, we swap our sheer lipgloss for a more opaque and darker hue of lipstick, and we pile on the moisturizer. For many of us, the thicker the better.
But then the days start to get a little warmer and a little longer, and soon our cloudy overcast turns into a bright, sunshiny day. When that happens our rich, creamy moisturizer begins to feel a little overbearing, and the full-coverage foundation we’ve been wearing for the last quarter feels a little too thick, and makeup even melts off our faces throughout the warm-weathered days.
If those aren’t signs that your beauty routine needs to change, we’re not sure what is.
