1. A deep coloured pout
Deep coloured lips and winter makeup look is truly a match made in heaven! The deep, dark and rich tones of berries and red lipstick is the perfect addition to any winter makeup. If you aren’t fond of darker eye makeup, applying a deep berry or dark red lipstick is the perfect way to add that oomph factor to your makeup ensemble.
To get the perfect pout, start your lip makeup by prepping your lips first. Use a lip balm to hydrate your lips, so they don’t look chapped or crack through the day. Choose a liquid matte lipstick and apply it to the contours of your lips. It is advisable to use a liquid lipstick formula while applying dark lipstick, as this prevents your lipstick from smudging and transferring all around your mouth. Once your liquid lipstick has dried down, you can apply some gloss or lip balm on top of it for that additional shine. And voilà, your deep-toned pout is ready to rock those winter parties.
2. Blushed cheeks
Flushed cheeks are truly an iconic winter makeup look. The touch of rosy tint to your cheeks makes you look fresh. The flushed look is one of the best looks of winter makeup for Indian skin. It adds life back to pale or even dusky skin and gives your skin a healthy glow. While doing your face makeup, your blush application will elevate your look and add the perfect kiss of flush to your skin. After setting your foundation and concealer with some powder, take some powder blush on your brush. Concentrate the pigment on the apples of your cheeks and diffuse it while moving towards your temples. This method of application makes it look very natural while adding the perfect amount of colour to your skin.
If you aren’t in the mood for a full face of makeup, a great winter makeup hack would be to use a creamy lipstick or tinted lip balm as your blush. Simply take some product on your fingertips and warm it up slightly. Apply it on your bare skin and you’ll have a beautiful flush!
3. Glowy base
Glowy makeup this winter is the perfect winter makeup look. It is time to add some glow to your skin and beam like a goddess. This base makeup is the perfect way to apply winter foundation for dry skin. It ensures glowy skin that doesn’t look too dry. Start by prepping your skin with some dewy and smoothing primer. The next step would be to apply some stick highlighter under your liquid foundation. This will create a glow from within look, and help you shine from the beginning. Make sure you choose a foundation shade that matches you well, or you may look too wahsed out. If you are having trouble in finding the right shade, you can use the Maybelline Fit Finder tool. With this tool, you can virtually try different foundation shades from the comfort of your home.
After applying your concealer, contour and blush, it is time to glam your skin with some powder highlighter. Apply some highlighter to the high points of your face. This winter makeup tip is perfect to shine like a diamond this season!
4. Colourful eyeliner
Winged eyeliner is a classic winter makeup trend. It looks chic and goes with every winter makeup look. However, it is time to change it up slightly for the holiday season. Add some colour to your eye look in the simplest of ways. Switch out your black liquid eyeliner for a coloured eyeliner. If you aren’t a fan of brighter colours for the winter, you can venture into navy or brown eyeliners. These add a slight pop of colour, while still looking chic. You can create a classic wing or even experiment with a puppy eyeliner or foxy eyeliner.
5. Brown smokey eyes
This classic adds the perfect touch of sultry to any look. Applying brown eyeshadow to your eyes, really uplifts your entire look. If you have deep black, brown or green eyes, it will make your eyes pop. Simply take your favourite nude eyeshadow palette and start by applying a matte brown eyeshadow across your lids.
