First, if you have dry skin, you can choose a product that has a creamy and thick texture that can moisten and hydrate your skin well.

Choose Light Foundation for The Complexion
Now we get into the complexion product! As you can see from the picture, the “I’m cold” makeup focuses on a healthy and natural skin look. Therefore, we recommend you use a foundation that has a light texture and light coverage just to even your skin tone. Don’t worry if your skin has a lot of blemishes, because we will give you a solution for that.
Then, if you have oily skin, you may prefer the foundation that has a semi-matte finish to make your skin looks healthy. Meanwhile, if you have dry skin, you can use a dewy finish foundation. Apply the product all over your face with beauty tools whether a beauty sponge or brush. And make sure you blend it well until it looks merges with your skin.
Hide Your Imperfections Wearing Concealer
As we told you before, we have a solution for you who have a lot of blemishes on your skin. I know, sometimes it will make you feel not confident, and light coverage foundation can’t cover it. But, you don’t have to get worried! Because you can use a concealer that can hide all the blemishes on your skin. The concealer has a higher coverage over a foundation that’s why it can cover well your imperfections.
There are two types of concealer, which are liquid concealer and cream concealer. For this makeup, we suggest you wear a liquid concealer because it will give a natural finish. Furthermore, apply the product on the area that needs extra coverage like acne, dark spot, and dark circle. Wait a few minutes until the condition is half-dry, then you can blend with your fingers, beauty sponge, or a concealer brush.
Make a Dimension to Your Face with Bronzer
After using complexion products, I believe your skin will lose its dimension. This is the first thing that causes your makeup to look unnatural and tacky. So, you need to bring it back by wearing bronzer. We don’t recommend you wear a contour product because it will make your makeup look too much. Then, for the product, you can prefer that has a cream texture to make your makeup natural.
Choose the color of bronzer that has 1-2 shades below your skin tone. Furthermore, you can start to apply it under the cheekbone, jawline, hairline, and nose. It will help you to get the V-shaped face effect in a while. Don’t forget to blend until the product merges with your skin and it looks like your natural face dimension.
Blush is The Key to This Makeup Look

Usually, we don’t recommend using a lot of blush, but now, you need to put in as much as you can. Blush is divided into two types, which are cream blush and powder blush. And we want you to wear both of them to make it looks bold.
If you feel confused with the color of the blush, you can go on with the pink or mauve color that’s suitable to the vibe of winter. Furthermore, the thing that you have to remind is, to apply the product under your eyes, not on the apple of your cheeks. Don’t forget to make it cross your nose to get a cute look.
