For most of us, winter is the hardest time of year to be inspired to get ready and leave the house. After all, your bed is warm and outside it is not. Your tea is green, but the leaves outside are gone. SPOILER ALERT: no matter how much you bundle up, you’ll still be cold. It’s a mess, but your makeup won’t be! Here are 5 HOT looks to rock this winter that will warm you right up*.
1. Metallic Blue Eyeshadow
Metallic blue to match your blue fingers when you forget your gloves at home. For a mesmerizing blue, try Charlotte Tilbury’s Midnight Seduction. It is a midnight-blue hue with a bit of sparkle that creates a metallic look. When applying glitters like this, spray some setting powder on your brush before picking up any product. Then apply it to your lid. Also, try to apply your eyeshadow before your foundation/face makeup because there may be some fallout.
This eyeshadow is a perfect match for wardrobe essentials such as women’s dark-colored apparel.
2. Bold Cat-Eye
This is the year you will final achieve that perfect wing! A bold cat-eye with some mascara is a classic. Rock this look for the “effortless-classy” feel. Remember: If you can dream it, you can achieve it. It’s all about the visualization. To start, without making a mark, line up the corner of your eye with the end of you eyebrow. Next, draw a thin line from the corner of your eye until about halfway to your eyebrow. Draw mini dots right above your eyelashes. Gently, connect these dots and the tip of the first line you drew. Fill in any empty spots, brush on some eyeliner, and you’re good to go.
3. Two-Toned Red Lip
One of the most popular colors for the winter is red. A way to spice up your bold red lip is to mix in another red shade. This red should be either a few shades darker or a few shades lighter than the original shade. To start, apply the darker shade more toward the corners of the lips, then apply the lighter shade in the middle of your lips.
4. Silver Eyeshadow
As eyeshadow or as eyeliner, you choose! If you are looking for a glittery eyeshadow to use as a liner, try Stila’s liquid eyeshadow in Diamond Dust, and you’ll shine bright like a diamond. You can place it directly on top of your black eyeliner or use it without black eyeliner! There are no rules!
5. Burnt Orange Lip Color
It’s cool for the summer, but burnt for the winter. Try a burnt orange lip color to compliment a basic shimmery eye. This bold lip will provide a pop of color while reminding you of the pumpkin spice latte days. Jeffree Star Cosmetics’ Pumpkin Pie is absolutely gorgeous for this look, especially because it has hints of glitter.
No matter what look you choose to rock this winter, you’re sure to look fabulous. Here’s to staying warm during this frigid winter!
