The 4 Best Makeup Looks For Winter 2015/2016

Showbiz Nov 25, 2015

The weather is getting cooler and the days are getting shorter. Winter is coming soon, and looking your best this season is so easy with these easy-to-achieve looks.

The top 4 makeup trends for this winter are:

1.Red Lips

A red lip is always a classic. The red shades this season range from a true red to a dark crimson and even to berry tones.
*Best Tip
Apply the same shade of red lip liner to your lips. Lip liner is great for evening out any asymmetry or creating the illusion of a larger lip. Fill in your whole lip with the liner. Blot. Then apply lipstick with a lip brush — as it gives a much more precise line. Blot again. Use a little pressed powder around your mouth to prevent lipstick from bleeding. Drinking with a straw helps keep lipstick perfect for hours.
I love the Beautiful Moisturizing lipstick by Elizabeth Arden. The high-pigment colour lasts 12 hours with a single swipe —and all while moisturizing your lips! This product pairs perfectly with the Beautiful Colour Precision Glide Lip Liner in Red Door Red. It defines lips with ease and is smudge-proof, waterproof, transfer-proof and colour-extending. Don’t be afraid to be bold! All shades of red look so gorgeous on all skin tones.

2.Burnt Orange, Gold and Metallic Eye Shadow

To make your eyes pop, gold and burnt orange really make a statement. Whether you apply the shadow just as a liner or all over the lid and blend it out, these shades complement all skin tones.
I love the M.A.C eye shadow called Rule. It has a little bit of burnt yet vibrant orange. It pairs perfectly with Bobbi Brown Burnt Sugar or on its own. I adore experimenting with blending or adding a burst of burnt orange to the corners of my eyes and a gold all over the lid — or vice versa.

*Best Tip
Apply moisturizer, foundation or concealer to your lid for added staying power.

3.Strong Brows

Strong brows are back and better than ever. Whether you use a pencil, a damp eye shadow with an eyeliner brush or a wax or gel, it’s easy to achieve the fuller look.
I love “Gimme Brow” by Benefit. It comes in two different shades — light and dark — and the colours are truly universal. The brush is tiny, so it’s perfect for filling in any bare spots with precision. It’s also perfect for grooming. I have swum while wearing Gimme Brow and it didn’t budge, but it still washed away easily with a makeup remover.
*Best Tip
If you have hard-to-tame brows, spritzing a brow brush or a clean mascara wand with hairspray and brushing through your brows will keep them in place.

4.Dewy Skin

Flawless, dewy skin is in. Mèreadesso’s Tinted Moisturizer is my go-to. Not only does it blend effortlessly to create a beautiful, even glow, but you can also layer it for extra coverage, like a concealer, for areas like your under-eyes and blemishes. It’s also chockfull of minerals and antioxidants, and it comes in a variety of shades to suit every skin tone.
*Best Tip
A little goes a long way. Make sure to blend in to the hairline, chest and where the skin is exposed for a uniform look.
