How to Adapt Your Makeup and Skincare Routine For Winter

Winter can be such a gorgeous season, but its dehydrating effects on the skin aren't always quite as lovely. We asked Jillian Dempsey, celebrity makeup artist and Avon's global creative colour director, what her tips are for adapting her makeup and skincare routines for cooler temperatures. Here's what advice Jillian had to give:

Moisturise like crazy: For well-hydrated skin, Jillian recommends using essential oils at night to lock in moisture. Then, apply your regular moisturiser on top for even more hydrating power. We love Jurlique Lavender Pure Essential Oil ($19).

Keep reading . . .What to invest in: Winter can be a bleak season, but that doesn't mean your makeup has to reflect your surrounding environment of grey skies and dreary rain. Jillian suggests livening things up by investing in some bolder colours than you'd normally wear. Try Avon's ColorSHOCK True Colour Eyeshadow Quads ($29.99 each).

As far as makeup textures go: "A lot of the time you get the dry flakes and things like that, and you don't want to add on something that will intensify whatever's dry on your face," says Jillian. Of course, whatever texture you choose will depend on the way your skin responds to cold weather, but for an easy way to add luminosity, a cream blush is a no-fail option. It'll give you an instant glow and definition without looking cakey, either. Check out Avon Soft Mousse Blush ($12.99) or Clinique Blushwear Cream Stick ($43).

Stockists: Avon (1800 646 000).
