Getting ready isn’t just about what clothes you take out from your closet, what shoes you put on when you run out the door or which necklace you decide looks best. Dressing up also includes your makeup. With social media only getting increasingly popular, makeup is making a huge impact on the fashion world.

On a lazy day, when I’m between Netflix shows, I often find myself watching makeup tutorials or fashion hauls. I love trying new beauty trends as much as buying new clothes because makeup is just another form of self-expression through products and style.

Winter is the perfect season to experiment with new beauty trends. With the holidays, new years and the start of a new semester, there are plenty of occasions for dressing up.

This Fashionista started out with a pretty basic face. She then added a pop of gold, glittery shadow to make her green eyes really pop. Glitter eye shadow is the perfect way to add some sparkle to your outfit without actually wearing full-on sequins. She finished her look with some black eye liner, mascara and a nude lip to bring it altogether. This look is a perfect accessory to her little black dress and showcases her features without overwhelming her face.

When putting together any outfit, always be sure you have a stellar makeup trend to match!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this look, start with a neutral base and add some sparkle with a single eye shadow. After some black eyeliner and mascara, finish the look with a natural lipstick and you’re ready!
