Do you have a season of holiday parties planned? Winter special occasions call for a special makeup look, and this season is all about lighting up those shorter days. Here are 3 tips to light up your winter makeup.
Winter Makeup Trends
The top winter makeup trends this year draw on the brightness of the season–tinsel, lights, and sparkle. Follow these three tips to get the look yourself.
Light Up Your Eyes
Metallic eyeshadow comes in a variety of shades, not just traditional metallics, like copper, silver, bronze, and gold. However, those traditional colours make a terrific base for your eyelid palette. They complement nearly any other metallics you apply. Don’t worry about toning it down. This is the season to be festive, so go glittery over the whole eyelid, including the crease and up to the brow. Pro tip: use a lighter shimmery shade for just below the brow.
Make Your Cheeks Glow
Rosey cheeks are iconic of the winter season. They bring to mind laughing and playing in the snow, and then coming in to a hot cup of cocoa. Go for a natural-looking glow with rose-toned blush on the apples of your cheeks. Then finish it off with a shimmery light pink highlighter above the apples.
Get Your Lips Party Ready
It’s time for those holiday parties, and the right lipstick can make all the difference in going from your everyday look to a special occasion style. A deep cranberry is festive without being too dark. It’s also a shade that looks great on anybody. Go ahead and find one with a bit of metallic shine to it to keep your holiday makeup glowing.
