Winter makeup tips for women
- Choosing lipsticks: Red is the classic choice to wear in the wintertime. Even if you find it too audacious and raw to wear it round the year, winter gives you the opportunity to experiment with different shades of red. No matter your skin tone, you cannot get wrong with tints of dark pink, red and burgundy. However, dark lipsticks look particularly nice on pale and light complexions. Girls and women having tanned or dark skin can go safe with shades of deep palms, berries and warm reds. If you are blessed with an olive skin tone, then anything, ranging from nudes, oranges, pinks and reds will look great on you. Use a coordinating lip liner to finish the look. There are some more things that you should note:
1. If you are not confident enough to carry a glossy, luscious look, then try the matte shades, but make sure that you moisturize your lips underneath. No one would fancy seeing vibrant shades of lipstick on dry, chapped lips.
2. If you do not want to make any experiment with shades of red, then try warm tones like berry or mauve. You can mix and match between various shades.
3. If you do not like lipsticks, then try using lip balms. Find warm shades like red currant, berries and honey. A wholesale distributor can show you stuffs to loot!
- Get your mascaras: Beat the dreariness of winter by highlighting your eyes with various shades of mascara. If you have always wanted to wear ‘weird shades like blue and purple, then winter is the time to give them a try! You can even try shades of navy, burgundy and auburn. Make your eyes look alluring, without ‘overdoing’ the eye makeup. Any of the above mentioned shades will guarantee to add a subtle color, adding some depth to the eyes.
- Eyeliner: As it is the case with mascara, winter is the time to try to be different with the shades of your eyeliner. Give a conventional ‘blackest blacks’ a break and pick chocolate brown, jungle green and navy blue. Steal the show with a bit of shimmering eye shadow. However, to complement this look, you should consider using a nude or light lipstick.
- Eye shadow: Silver eye shadows are the classic choices for the winter. Shades of silver and white, when paired with a very soft black liner can add a contrasted effect! The whole look is accentuated with bold red lips! Or if you want to don a sultry look, and then use shades of cinnamon and dark brown to create the magic.
- For glowing cheeks: You might not want to use as much of bronzer as you need to do in summer. However, a little amount of bronzer on the cheeks will keep you look blushing. A creamy blusher can also do in the glitzy evenings.
- Trendy nails: Once again, dark shades of nail polishes are best for the cold chilling days. Keep the frosty look aside and give your nod to dark purple, burgundy, blackberry, navy blue or copper. These shades will look best on finely trimmed, filed, just to your fingertip nails.
