Winter make up essentials:
Wearing the right colors:
With winter comes the need to look your best. Colors such as coffee, mahogany, burgundy, berry, mocha and cherry replace the summer pastels and frosted shades. Deep purples, grays, moss greens blended with sheer silver, gold, copper and platinum hues dominate the fashion circuits in the winter months. Glitter and gloss are an all-time trendy buy for stuffing up your make up bag. The citrus and spicy tones of make up are a rage during the chilly months.
It is recommended that you use a matt finish foundation during the winters. Either your foundation or your moisturizer must have an adequate SPF to block the harmful UV radiation of the sun that is prominent even in the winter months.
The smoky look for the party season is evergreen. You can blend shades of green, purple, mocha, blue or even neon colors to get a perfect smoky effect. Use silver, champagne or golden hues for the subtler look. Remember to wear nude lipstick and blusher with a smoke eye effect.
Black mascaras work wonders for your eyes during the winter months with eyeliners in dark blue, purple, kohl and browns.
The glitter effect is back with a bang. Mix your favorite glitter with your best body lotion and apply it all over your body. Remember it must be either on your body or on your face but never on both!
Rich and creamy shades are in this season. You can opt for rich pinks, browns, reds and coppers to get an instant glamorous look. Creamy blushers look great during the winters.
You can stick to the rich aroma of essential oils and create your own winter blend to rock the party. Spicy aromas such as cinnamon, woody and balmy fragrances are a big hit during the winters.
Try vitamin enriched lipsticks with build in moisturizers for the winters. Shades such as red, mahogany, caramel, coffee, mocha, wine and burgundy are a hit throughout the season. Extra sheen can be created by dabbing lip gloss for that sizzling sparkle.
You can do up your nails with a ravishing French manicure or color them with dark reds, burgundy, browns and rust. No winter make up routine is complete without achieving the perfect nails. You need to be versatile. Change your nail color as and when you feel the need to and moisturize your hands regularly.
With these winter make up tips you are likely to rock the party and sail gracefully through the winter months with ease.
