Time for a style update! We’re bringing you the trendiest looks of the season that are both cutting edge and still wearable, with some new twists on classic looks and throwbacks to other seasons. Show that not only do you know your beauty trends – you can also set them too. Have heads turning in the best way this winter with some of these stylish looks of the season.
Focus on the lips—and make it bold!
If there’s one thing we know about winter style (that we will not ever tire of!), it’s that the colder months are all about that dark lip. We love a variation on a deep red, like a wine shade or dark purple hue, as long as it’s eye-catching! You’ll want to do very light, clean makeup for the rest of your face to really let the lip shine. Eyes should be primed with a neutral color to almost appear like a clean blank canvas. For the rest of your face, use highlighter only to emphasize the high points of your face – a touch of shimmer on the cheekbones, a pop on the tip of your nose and cupids bow, etc. A look like this makes the lip the main attraction – and keeping it light everywhere else creates a contrast between the eye and lip.
Monochromatic is IN!
Monochromatic looks are stylish, chic, and open to interpretation! You can stay within the same color family for a more wearable variation, or make sure your lips and eyes are the same exact color for a super modern look. While some prefer an all matte look, some like to play it up with a little shimmer to mix it up. Luckily, we’ve got a look that appeals to both! We’re thinking nudes, pinks, and neutrals are big this season, and you can incorporate these colors easily into your eyes, lips, and cheeks. Our favorite combination: try a sleek matte eye, a glossy lip, a shimmery highlight, and a touch of blush that incorporates the same color palette to pull the whole look together.
Bright eyes, baby!
We want those eyes to POP, and using a light eyeshadow is the perfect way to put the attention on them. You can brighten them up by using a shimmer or a pearlized shadow in a light neutral shade, like a champagne, beige or white. Tip: we love a white shimmery shadow for the season, because it’s reminiscent of the winter snow outside! Apply a sheer layer to keep it natural. You can apply to the entire lid, or just the inner corner of your eyes for a quick brightening trick.
Summer in December
A bronzer will be your best friend this December. Bronzed looks with rosy pinks will let you feel like the summer never ended. After all, a bronzed glow never goes out of style — even in the winter! Using rosy hues that give the impression of flushed cheeks will bring more dimension to your look and give you healthy, glowing skin. Bring a touch of color to the lips, too — but make sure you’re using those lip treatments! Dry, cracked lips are no joke in the winter time.
