With winter in full swing, it's important to customize your beauty routine to suit the lower humidity and cold, windy conditions. 

In the summer many tend to want more mattifying products to hold up against sweat and oils, but winter is a different story.

Additionally, styles and color schemes differ from season to season, so you may be looking for new products to suit the winter vibe.

Today let's take a look at Korean beauty YouTuber Risabae's recommendations for winter makeup.

Now that you know who she is, shall we take a look at there winter makeup for this 2021-2022 season?


Base

Espoir Pro Tailor Be Glow Stick Foundation

Price: 28,000 won

YouTuber Risabae Winter Makeup: Espoir Pro Tailor Be Glow Stick Foundation

Risabae's technique is to use one tone for most of your face that matches your skin tone well, and then one that is a bit lighter in the center of the face to brighten. She used the shades Ivory and Vanilla.

These days, since the air is dry it is good to use a foundation that is more moisturizing, so a glowy, dewy foundation is what she looks for in winter. 

This particular foundation she recommends unfortunately only comes in 4 shades, but you can use any dewy or hydrating foundation that works for you. For a stick foundation that has a wider shade range, you can check out Makeup Revolution's Fast Base Stick Foundation.

When blending, try misting your cushion puff then tapping it out.

It's best to apply only as much as you need and not overdo it or it can end up looking cakey.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Setting Powder

Price: 57,000 won

You don't want to use too much powder since it is drying, but just enough to lightly set your foundation in the areas where you experience creasing such as smile lines, around the nose, and around the eyes. Apply by tapping rather than in a sweeping motion.

Risabae uses the shade Pale Lavender.


Nose & Eye Contour

Peripera Ink V-Shading

Price: 8,400 won

When contouring the nose, pay attention to the shape and use a light hand so that you don't end up with an overly exaggerated look.

Start by applying your contour shade (Risabae uses Hazel Gray) just under the tip of the nose, then around the ball of the nose using short strokes, brushing up towards the center of the nose. After that, lightly add contour across the nose to add definition between the bridge and tip of the nose, then starting at the corners of the eye brush outward, working your way down to define the bridge.

To finish, blend by patting with a puff to make it look more natural.
