Winter dryness can make your regular beauty regimen a pain. If you normally wear foundation but are hesitant to wear it over flaky skin, follow this advice from Liliana Grajales, a spa director and makeup artist based in South Beach, Miami:
• First, apply your daily moisturizer, and let it sink in completely, for at least five minutes.
• Using a foundation with a hydrating formula—Real Simple testers prefer Guerlain Lingerie de Peau Foundation ($59, sephora.com)—and gently apply as normal.
• Finally, lock your product with a translucent powder, which will help soak up oils that can accelerate fading.
