5 Winter Makeup Looks To Try  

1. A deep-coloured pout 

Deep-coloured lips and winter makeup look are 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 this winter makeup product is the perfect way to add that oomph factor to your makeup ensemble.


To get the perfect winter makeup pout, start your lip makeup by prepping your lips. Use a lip balm to hydrate your lips, so they don’t look chapped or cracked throughout 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 lip gloss on top of it for that additional shine and extra oomph. 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 a rosy tint to your cheeks makes you look fresh. The flushed look is one of the best winter makeup looks 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 winter makeup. 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 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 is another great winter makeup idea. This is the perfect time to add some glow to your skin and beam like a goddess. This base makeup is the perfect time 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 washed out. If you are having trouble finding the right shade, you can use the Maybelline Foundation Finder tool. With this tool, you can virtually try different foundation shades from the comfort of your home and discover a shade that matches your skin tone and undertone with ease. 


After applying your concealer, powder, and blush, it is time to glam your skin with some powder highlighter. Apply some highlighter to the high points of your face such as your cheekbones, the bridge of your nose and cupid’s bow. 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 slightly for the holiday season. Add some colour to your eye look in the simplest of ways. Switch out your black liquid eyeliner for coloured eyeliner. If you aren’t a fan of brighter colours for the winter, you can venture into the brown or navy 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, depending on your mood and outfit.

5. Brown smokey eyes

The classic smokey eyes add 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 even more. Simply take your favourite nude eyeshadow palette and start by applying a matte brown eyeshadow across your lids. Top this with a shimmery brown eyeshadow with gold flecks. You can also use a matte brown eyeshadow to smoke out your lash line. If you are unsure of how this will look, you can use the Maybelline Virtual Try-On Tool. With this tool, you can virtually try out different eyeshadow shades, and other winter makeup products, and create vivid eye looks effortlessly.  


These winter makeup ideas are sure to add the perfect touch of glam to your holiday parties. So, what are you waiting for? Get ready to dazzle everyone with your winter makeup looks right away!
