Winter Makeup Looks Worth Trying Right Now

Icy Eyeshadows For A Pop Star-Approved Look

Experimentation will be huge this season. The 2000s-inspired makeup trends are going to blow up. Expect to see some frosty blue shadows. Thanks to the pop stars aka Dua Lipa and Miley Cyrus for bringing it back. If you’re eyeing on the much-anticipated icy eyeshadow moment, this palette will do the trick for you.

The Under-Eye Blush Look For Minimalists

The undereye blush makeup trend involves applying blush on the apple of your cheeks directly under your eyes to add a pretty flush to your face. We are going to see the draped blush a lot this winter. While this technique isn’t new in the editorial world, it’s a fun one to welcome to mainstream beauty. 

Wine-Hued Make-up Is A Winter Win

Winter is just around the corner, and the fashion set has already zeroed in on lip colours we’ll all be coveting this season. After a long Hot Girl Summer, we’re honestly ready for a Chill Girl Winter. That said, burgundy will be making its usual appearance this winter. There’s nothing we love more than a bold statement lip to stand out at a party!

Frosty Inner Corners: The Dinky Beauty Detail Blowing Up RN

Spice up your go-to cat eye with a pop of baby blue (or your pastel of choice) in the inner corners. Not only does it brighten up your eyes, it’s a super easy way to wear colour that doesn’t feel intimidating. For even more dimension, use a deeper version of the shade for your inner liner. 

Smokey Eye Is Officially A Classic!

Beyond DP’s oh-so-chic off-white saree making the rounds on social media, it’s her experimental approach to makeup that stole the show.  Amalgamating the thick, arched rimming of kohl with a touch of smoke, laden with eyeliner and kajal on the waterline created a sultry look. She paired it with impeccably chiseled cheekbones and a defined nude lip. The makeup translates really, really well in pictures.

Glitter Accents Are Earning Likes Left And Right

While your instinct may be to go for cooler tones in cooler weather, a wash of golden shadow is a pretty reminder of sunny days to come. All you need is this eyeshadow palette to nail the look. The trend can be done using a light-reflecting highlighter, shadow or even a glitter lip.

A Wash Of Colour To Make A Statement

If you’re looking for a perfect daytime winter makeup look to wear with your matching sweat suit set, try Hailey’s soft wash of colour on your eyes, which can be dressed up or down. The more you blend out the pigment with a fluffy makeup brush, the softer and more diffused the finish, so spend some time with this one. 

This Soft Glam Is Just So Pretty

If you’ve the whole glamm thing for past New Year’s celebrations, change it up this year with a softer glam look made with monochromatic colours. The neutral eye and nude lipsticks combo very much still says, “glam,” but like, whispers it instead of screams it. 

Take A Nostalgia Trip With Disco Glam

Miley Cyrus has transformed from a Disney darling to an edgy It girl. That said, she took Disco makeup to the next level in her “Midnight Sky” music video and we are totes in love. The glittery lids teamed up with glossy red lips is perf for all the head turners out there! This makeup serves as a crucial cornerstone in the party girl’s arsenal.
