Avoid using too much powders as it absorbs the natural oils of the skin and make it look very dry and lifeless around winter season.
6-Use hydrating mist or setting sprays:
If you want to keep your make long-lasting in winter season then setting spray are better than powders. As sprays and mist reduce the flakiness on your face and it absorbs the excess powder and textured foundation.
7-Mix essential oil in your foundation:
If you have full coverage or matte foundation and you want to work with it in winter seasons. Then you can add a few drops of essential oils like argan oil or almond oil and you can make your foundation more hydrating and give your skin a healthy glow.

As we know that brush go a little bit harsh on skin than a beauty blender. Brush can raise the dry patches on skin and application of foundation is not as smooth as it suppose to be. Try to use damped beauty blender to avoid this problem as it is a dab motion so there are less chance for dryness to get visible.
