Winter’s Makeup Shake-Up
Nude makeup is so last winter! The newest winter makeup trends are all about impact: electric eyeshadow, berry lipsticks and metallic pigments that are applied with finesse.
This season celebrates metallic hints: a little silver swept under the eye, a little brushed on the centre of the lid while the rest of the face is left bare. Glitter is definitely for experts who can replicate the sophisticated finish from the runways. While makeup mavens have been playing with it for years, you too can add a bit of glitter to your look in case you want to go from a day look to night look in seconds. The must-have colours for eyeshadow are copper, navy blue and metallic plum. Use them all over the eyelid, smoke them out at the crease to intensify the look, or mix them with other colours from your arsenal. Try using taupe in the outer corners of the eyes and dust some glitter right in the middle to make your face pop. Applying mascara after eyeshadow is also a must to sharpen the look.

Gold seems to be ruling the fashion charts this fall. This time, it’s taken the form of yellow sparkle on the nails. Perfectly manicured tips topped off in gold look amazing, irrespective of the shape of your nails. The eternal smile curve in gold takes on a new suave look this season, creating negative space on the nail. Nothing screams sexy more than those perfectly done-up nails!

If you’re going to wear one lip colour this fall, make it a deep shade of red. Dark coloured lips have always been a fall/winter trend, and they are definitely here to stay. You don’t even have to be a fashion risk-taker or a celebrity to pull this one off. There’s always a deep shade of red, plum, or burgundy out there that perfectly matches your skin tone. So pick up your darkest black currant or deepest cherry red to add a little edge to any look. There are many makeup ideas & palettes that’ll work really well with this look. You can either top off the look with a heavy dose of black liner, colourful shadow – or no makeup at all.
Ensure melt-proof makeup this festive season. Invest in a good foundation or a bb/cc cream to hide imperfections and get that dewy, flawless complexion. This will instantly blur the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles like a pro. Always remember that makeup tricks don’t work unless your base is flawless.

Spidery and segmented lashes are back in vogue. Apply lots of mascara and stand out in style. Among the simplest of eye makeup tips, here’s how you can recreate this look: swipe some mascara on both your upper and lower eyelashes for emphasis. Instead of using an eyelash curler to create a traditional, fanned out look, focus on just a few key sections of lashes that look like, well, spider legs! Remember that best eye makeup is not about following makeup trends but picking those that look the best on you.
