"While doing makeup in cold and dry months, it's essential to make sure that the face is well moisturised. Before applying makeup, start with cleansing, toning and moisturising to ensure that the skin is soft and smooth and there is no dryness on the face," Taluja said in a statement.
She advises that women must use face primer post their skincare ritual, and then work their way on the makeup base.
"In autumn-winter, use a base with higher coverage to give a flawless look. A base with a higher coverage is thicker in texture, but can be used in winters because of the climate. But in the process of getting good coverage, don't make it cakey," said the expert.
"Use a dewy foundation to give a lovely sheen on the face," she added.
Taluja says bright colours are in vogue.
"Purple and violet hues, pink and red can be used. Dark smokey eyes look great for winters. A well defined winged eye liner is also very hot this season," she said.
