Gorgeous Winter Makeup
This Season’s Best Makeup Trends
The weather has cooled off and it’s an exciting time to try winter’s new makeup trends. This season, the look is a combination of fresh, sexy and sophisticated.
Berry red lips
A chic deep berry lip is key for this season. Prep your lips for this intense color by exfoliating with a toothbrush or petroleum jelly mixed with sugar; this will create a smooth base for the color. Next, prime lips with foundation or a creamy concealer (this will create a blank canvas for the rich color) and apply the lipstick with a lip brush. Look for lipstick tones from raspberry to ox blood to black plum to stay on trend.
Simply smokey eyes
This season, eyes are emphasized with kohl or kajal-inspired pencils to create a smoldering look. Using the tip of the pencil, line the upper and lower lash lines. Next, using a cotton swab or smudge brush, gently smudge the color into the lash line to create the easiest, smoldering, smokey eye ever! If you feel the black is too much for day, try a brown or navy kajal pencil for a softer, tamer look.
This season, the idea is to look like you just went for a brisk walk in the crisp winter air or stepped off the ski slopes. Try a rose or peach toned blush to create the look depending on your skin tone. Light skin can try peach or pink tones, medium skin can try rose tones and dark skin can try raisin tones to get the look. To apply, start by smiling in the mirror and applying a small amount of blush to the apples of your cheeks. Next, blend the blush into the skin by using circular motions to create a natural look. If you need more color, you can build up, but it’s always better to start with less and work your way up.
