3 Winter Makeup Trends We Love
Well, it’s here folks. The first snowfall has hit the ground (and stuck) and despite having another month left of fall, winter is upon us, leaving our makeup routines in desperate need of a seasonal upgrade. Taking into account some of fall’s beauty trends, we have highlighted our top 3 “faces” that we can’t wait to try at one of the many events that will be held this season. Who says winter makeup has to be boring?
The Velvet Berry Lip: A personal favorite, the bold and velvety berry lip is back and better than ever. Perfect your pout with the perfect shade (I love Lime Crime’s Wicked Velveteen Liquid Lipstick), add a bit of black liner on the top of your lids and leave the rest of your look minimal for a look that is dramatic without being over the top.
It’s Electric: Injecting a bit of color into your beauty routine is a sure-fire way to keep your makeup looking fresh and flawless. Concentrate on keeping your skin looking lush (we love Bare Minerals’ Bare Skin foundation), add a bold cat eye lined in electric blue, skip the mascara and add a perfectly pinkish nude pout for a look that is worthy of the runway.
The Sparkle Factor: Metallics have officially made their comeback, and the new way to wear it is tonal and smoky. Expertly shape your smoky eye with the metal of your choice (gold, silver or bronze), use a shadow pencil for the edges of your lashes, add a shimmery bronzer on your cheekbones, lots of mascara, a nude lip, and you’re ready for a night on the town.
