How To Choose a Foundation for Winter

During the winter months, skin can struggle to adjust to colder temperatures and loses a lot of its natural moisture. This lack of moisture can cause dry patches to emerge, so it’s important to provide heaps of hydration to help skin restore its glowing, plump-looking complexion.

When choosing a foundation for winter, I always suggest using a hydrating formula that perfects the look of your complexion while delivering skincare benefits. Thinking of foundation as an extension of your skincare routine is the best way to look and feel your best throughout the cold-weather season; applying a smooth, moisture-boosting formula will set your skin up to stay hydrated and healthy-looking all winter long!

Each of my skin-loving foundation formulas are infused with nourishing ingredients that help to improve the appearance of skin with every wear!

Summer vs Winter Foundation

My fabulous foundations are designed to be worn all year round, darlings! However, in the hottest of hot and the coldest of cold climates, your skin type wants and wishes may vary, which could alter your foundation preferences too.

During winter, the number one skin benefit you need from your foundation is deep hydration. Foundations that are rich with hydrating skincare ingredients help the skin to maintain its healthy-looking glow throughout the winter; this is an amazing, year-round benefit, but it’s especially important when facing winter’s chill. Hydrating the skin with foundation helps prevent dryness and flaking, and in turn, your foundation can look smoother and more seamless.

In the summer, people are searching for that dewy-looking, sun-kissed glow! Light-coverage options with a glowy finish are perfect summer foundations for getting a fresh-faced, by-the-beach complexion! Since temperatures soar in the summer, full-coverage options can be prone to being broken down by sweat and leaving unflattering patches on the face. A light or medium-coverage foundation wears more forgivingly and requires less touch-ups than a full-coverage option which is perfect for sun-soaked days – just tap on a little bit of Airbrush Flawless Finish pressed powder in the T-zone to prevent unwanted shine and your summer complexion has arrived!

Tilbury Tip: Don’t be fooled, darlings, you can absolutely wear your summer foundation in the winter! Glowy, light-coverage options like Hollywood Flawless Filter can help skin to look luminous on winter days!
