Winter dressing is definitely less of a stress than the summer counterpart. With the layers and knitwear comes a reduced body beauty regime, but there’s the option to add colour to the creams, blacks and greys wardrobe by way of a statement lip or a colour clash on your eyelids.
Winter beauty; it’s the epitome of stylised make-up, leave the risky neons in your summer collection and expand your berries, purples and smoky collection of your make-up closet.
Bold lips are always on-trend through Autumn and Winter, the darker you dare to go, the better; Style out bitten reds and nearly black purples with a monochrome outfit, keeping the rest of your face simple. A dab of gold pigment on your upper lip can take it into the evening and is an unexpected twist to an otherwise simple look.
If you prefer to experiment with your eye looks, then judge your trend by your eye colour. Subtle cranberries work with every colour, but blended with gold will accentuate any blue or green eyes, whilst worn alone will provide a great contrast with brown eyes. Add a slick of liner to the top lash line to polish the look and don’t forget an inner corner highlight to open up the eyes.
Experimenting with liner is another easy way to channel some catwalk trends for any colour phobes out there. Try a double flick at the outer corner, or reverse liner working the flick on the lower lashes rather than the upper. An easy way to add colour in (without going too overboard) is to grab a bright purple or blue liner and use it on the water or tightline (the strip of skin on the inside of the lashes). If you’re sticking with monochrome, then opt for white to keep eyes bright and awake whilst the nights get darker.
No matter where you’re choosing to channel the season’s beauty trends, it’s all about getting the hues of colour through tints and stains to keep it season appropriate. So stock your make-up bag with multi-use products to get the most out of your autumn/winter regime.
