Seasonal makeup dilemmas solved
The great thing about winter is that the chilly weather allows you to feel more comfortable in your make-up. No more sliding foundation, sweaty upper lip (SUL), or perspiration mixing with your mascara.
However, winter does bring with it its very own set of make-up dilemmas, like finding a new foundation that suits your paler winter skin, discovering which lipstick shade is hot this season, how to get a glowing complexion sans sun and perhaps the biggest predicament of all – how to inject some glam into a grey winter’s day!
Thankfully, working at beautyheaven.com.au means I’m privy to the latest make-up products and make-up bag essentials. And this winter it’s all about a pop of colour.
The perfect base
Forget a lackluster complexion, this season it’s about getting dewy, radiant and glowing skin. Combine a lightweight but nourishing moisturiser with a touch of tinted foundation and illuminiser for a comfortable make-up base.
Farewell fake tan
I hear a gasp! Saying sayonara to your self-tanner doesn’t mean a putrid pallor. In fact it makes way for a beautiful fresh rosiness. Choose a rosy, satin-texture blush which screams vintage chic.
Make eyes pop
Adding colour to your winter make-up wardrobe (aka your make-up kit or make-up bag) is easy with Rimmel London Glam’ Eyes Eyeshadows. These colourful eye colours add a touch of bright to even the dullest of winter days. The eyeshadow pallette contains four eye colour shades and are available in various colour combination quads.
Bold brow how
A burly make-up trend this season is bold eyebrows. Pull back on the plucking and use an eyebrow pencil to emphasis your brow and fill in any bare patches. Strong, bold eyebrows are best teamed with nude, natural make-up.
Looking for the latest lipstick shade? The beauty news from Europe’s hottest catwalks is that soft browns, peaches and pinks are on-trend when it comes to lips this winter.
So when it comes to winter make-up looks, try teaming a radiant complexion with neutral lips and add a pop of colour via your choice of eye shadow shade. But remember make-up trends aren’t law. Break free and find your own unique make-up style and wear it with pride.
