We wear makeup for a variety of reasons—to feel our best, to honor a special occasion, to look pretty, and a host of others. Whether you follow the latest makeup trends or not, the looks this winter are so showstopping you won’t want to miss them. Look at these winter makeup tips and start planning which ones you are going to try.
Step aside, gold, there’s a new metallic in town! Copper shadows have been showing everywhere from the runways to Instagram all season, and we cannot get enough. This earthy metallic is equal parts glam and down to earth, and converts easily from day to night. Swipe on a penny-colored shadow before work in the morning and you will be looking fabulous all the way through dinner and drinks.
Fierce, full eyebrows have been coming back for several seasons, but this winter they are stronger than ever before. Women everywhere are embracing their brows’ natural fullness, while others are using the world of eyebrow pencil, pomade, and powder to give them the fullness they crave. Strong brows set the tone for your whole face, and they can make a statement with or without heavy makeup elsewhere.
Everywhere you look, women are looking up at you through thick, gorgeous lashes. Using the amazing mascaras that are available, falsies, or even eyelash extensions, you can make your eyes pop with full lashes. Minimal eyeshadow and soft lip make your doe eyes the center of attention, or you can opt for a smokey eye to up the drama. Whatever look you choose, emphasize your eyelashes to bring your look to the next level.
Dramatic Lipstick—plum, dark and vampy colors, even black
This winter, dark lips go perfectly with minimal eye makeup to create an other-worldly look. This season’s dark lips aren’t just the cranberry shades you might expect; instead dark plum, blackberry, deep mahogany, and even black are showing up everywhere, proving that the classic red lip isn’t the only way to make a statement.
Colorful Eye Makeup
For a look that is drastically different from the dark and vampy lips, try out colorful eye makeup. Technicolor hues like turquoise, burnt orange, and pink look perfectly on trend. You can choose to do a dab of shadow in the center of your lid or a subtle sweep of colored eyeliner; both looks brighten up the cold winter days and add a lovely pop of color. A generous amount of mascara balances out this look, keeping it sophisticated.
Radiant skin is the perfect complement to any makeup look, and this season’s dewy highlight ups the ante with ultra-shimmery formulas and less structured application. Forget the complicated contouring tutorials you watched last year, and update your look with a toned down look that is youthful and effortless.
