BEAUTY BAR: Makeup for the Cold Months

With the cold months in full swing and almost coming to a close (hopefully!), we must take advantage of the opportunity to wear winter inspired makeup before it’s too late! With so many different colors that represent the winter and autumn season, it is the perfect time to play around with colors that you normally wouldn’t because you can fit right in.

If you don’t know where to start in order to change your everyday makeup look to something that is resemblant of the winter months, I would recommend starting with your lips. They are the one thing that you can never really mess up, that is unless you don’t know how to draw inside the lines. All you have to do is find the perfect shade to match your outfit and taste, and simply apply! You can never go wrong with what you put on your lips so try on as many colors as you please. The most popular colors for lipstick this time of year are all of the dark shades including red and brown. However, don’t be afraid to try other eccentric colors out there such as purple, nude, and even yellow.

The next thing I would do to achieve a winter inspired makeup look would be to change up the eyes. There are a plethora of eye shadow shades and colors readily available, so I would recommend trying out multiple looks to see what you like best… the options are endless! I would try staying with the darker colors such as brown, gold, black, red, and purple to achieve a darker feel. Once that is done, finish off your shadow with some eyeliner and mascara, and you are set!

When achieving this winter inspired look, this Fashionista focused mainly on her lip color. She chose a bold burgundy color to stand out against her simple, yet gorgeous, eye makeup. For her eyes, she chose a light eye shadow and finished it off with a bold winged eyeliner.

I would recommend choosing one part of the face to use bold makeup on so that your look doesn’t look too overdone. For example, if you choose to do a bold lip, I would keep the eyes simple, but not too simple, just like this Fashionista did.
