BEAUTY BAR: Marvelous in Mauve

BEAUTY BAR: Marvelous in Mauve

Now that it’s actually beginning to feel like winter, it’s time to not only update our wardrobes for the season but also our beauty routines. This may mean switching to lighter foundations as our summer tans (sadly) fade away, as well as changing up our eye shadow palettes and lip colors from summer/fall to more wintry shades. By no means does this have to be a lamentable change, though, as this Fashionista proves.

This Fashionista is rocking the perfect winter beauty look, consisting of matte bronzer and a shimmery mauve eye with a rosy gloss. The reason she went with matte bronzer and blush was to avoid shimmery or glowing powders that would create a more dewy, summery look. Specifically, she used “Milk Chocolate Soleil Matte Bronzer” by Too Faced to create the perfect contour, and NYX blush in the shade “Amber.” As for the eyes, this Fashionista made a statement by going for a shimmery mauve eye using the Morphe 35t palette and a bold cat-eye using Stila brand liquid eyeliner. The sparkly, mauve eye shadow truly complements her chocolate-brown eyes and (self-proclaimed) paler winter skin. This Fashionista used Amplimascara to lengthen and thicken her eyelashes, and the L’Oreal Brow Stylist Definer to perfect her brows. The mauve theme was continued in this Fashionista’s lip color, which was the perfect wintry mixture of pink and purple. She achieved this lip color by layering Colourpop lip gloss in “Finder’s Keepers” over Colourpop liquid lipstick in “Lumiere 2.”

This winter beauty look doesn’t end with the makeup, though. This Fashionista managed to update beachy waves into this season by curling her hair with a 1.5 inch curling iron and then tousling it out to leave her with natural, loose waves. She accompanied her winter makeup look with an all-black ensemble consisting of a floral cropped sweater, ripped jeans, booties, and a jeweled light blue choker.

So, don’t stress over winter makeup. A fun look for the frosty season can be as simple as finding the perfect matte bronzer and blush, and going for a bold eye shadow and lip color in shades that complement your eyes and skin. And, as this Fashionista proves, mauve should be mandatory during the winter!
