Ahh, the dreaded winter skin phenomenon, the bane of most people's existence during cold weather months. For all my foundation lovers out there, I bet you are starting to notice that your go-to makeup staples may not always cut it as biting winds, and dry air sucks the life out of our faces. Switching to one of these many hydrating foundations for our troubled winter skin may be in order if you hope to keep your makeup looking flawless.

Personally, in the colder months, I like to use a more full-coverage foundation so that I have a flawless base to work with. While it might have a steep price tag, the Estée Lauder Double Wear foundation is worth adding to your makeup collection. 

This foundation is heavy duty and lasts me a good six to eight hours before needing a touch-up. This product is both oil free and oil controlling, making this gem a winter must-have for our makeup bags. Its ability to blur out fine lines, pores and uneven skin give it major props in the beauty world.
