The Only 5 Winter Makeup Trends You Need for 2019

No one wants to wear outdated makeup styles.

But it can be hard to keep up with what’s on trend, especially when you already have a busy schedule. You barely have time to apply your makeup, let alone keep up with new techniques!

That’s where Stylu comes to the rescue.

We’ve got you covered with the only 5 winter makeup trends you need for 2019. (And our mobile hair and makeup professionals in Toronto are on top of it, ready to put these trends to work so you don’t have to lift a finger.)

Here are the winning looks…

Best Makeup Looks For The Winter

Glitter lips

Winter is truly the season for glittery makeup, not just a slight shimmer. Bring on all the sparkle for the season when the sun glints of the ice.

Apply a base coat of lipstick and then top it with glittery eyeshadow to get this look. You’ll want to make sure you add a setting spray over the glitter afterward, to keep it from traveling across your face.

Red lips

Red lips are not only classic, they can look quite festive, which is a nice way to liven up the cold winter months.

Here’s the thing about red lipstick though…

You really have to find the shade that complements your natural skin and hair tones. For those with darker complexions, reds that lean towards the orange spectrum look best. If you’re on the pale side, berry shades that lean toward the blue spectrum will look better.

Coloured eyeliner

Going along with the bold winter styles, many makeup trendsetters are showcasing coloured eyeliner — blue, purple, green, orange, silver. You can wear it on the waterline, above the top lashes, or below the lower lashes, depending on the look you want to create.

Creamy colours

You know how it is with makeup application in the winter. If you don’t take extra care to exfoliate and moisturize, you can end up with flakey looking makeup because of the dry skin beneath it.

Powdery makeups are the worst offenders.

To help mitigate the problem, our beauty professionals suggest switching to creamy blush and eyeshadow for the drier months.

More glitter

Finally, the biggest trend we’ve seen on the runways and from various makeup experts is lots of glitter this season.

We already talked about the lips. You can also use glitter to line your eyes or with your eyeshadow. Or you can tap a light, neutral coloured glitter into inner corners of your eyes to make you look awake and alert. It adds instant brightness.

Keep in mind that if you’re going to do the glitter look, you should stick with just one area to glam up, especially if it’s for your daytime look.
