Is it just me or are we actually experiencing a real winter season this year? Although I’ve been enjoying the chilly weather, my skin has been facing a ton of dryness recently. Whilst the right primer can definitely help, I decided to do my research and figure out the best foundations for winter skin. Read on to see them all!

1. Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Hydrating Foundation

Infused with hyaluronic acid, this oil-free foundation is one of the most comfortable ones to wear during this season. Not only does it deliver a fresh and natural finish, but also doesn’t cake, oxidise or cause breakouts. Plus, it comes in an incredible range of 40 shades!

2. Make Up For Ever Water Blend Face & Body Foundation

When I came across this foundation, I immediately added a bottle to my shopping cart. Made up of 80% of water, this product is as lightweight as it gets. Since it is easily buildable, you can layer on more to get the amount of coverage you desire.

3. Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Stick

I know what you are thinking… but this stick foundation won’t emphasise the dry patches on your face. Instead, it targets parched skin to keep it healthy and moisturised, whilst providing medium to full coverage.

5. Neutrogena Hydro Boost Hydrating Tint

Although these tints come in limited shades, they do a fabulous job on dealing with dryness. Since they too are equipped with hyaluronic acid, they leave behind a moisturised and plump complexion.

6. Becca Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation

This water-infused foundation is a dream to work with. Apart from seamlessly sinking into skin, it also gives off a soft-focus, blurring effect that eliminates the need for any filters. What more could a girl ask for?

7. MAC Studio Waterweight SPF 30 Foundation

I saved the best for last. This fluid foundation keeps skin nourished, protects from UV rays and delivers a flawless finish. You can wear it all day without worrying about it streaking, fading or changing colour.
