Cold days are here and if you ask us, it’s the best season to get out of your comfort zone and experiment with new makeup looks (‘cause, less sweat y’know). And, you can go crazy with the colours and textures as there’s no such thing as too much brightness in pale winters. So grab the opportunity and try your hand at some hot and heavy winter makeup trends that we’ve picked for you.
All that Glitters
Our childhood dream turned into reality this season. The hottest (and prettiest) winter trend is glitter makeup, literally everywhere you can imagine: cheekbones, eyes, hands, lips, even hair. Go kira kira by putting a little glitter in your hair parting or cheekbones and your look is party-ready. But remember to not overuse it. Just a little is more than enough unless you want to be seen from outer space!
Maximalist and out-of-the-box makeup was the mantra on the runways this fall, be it over-the-top colours or graphic eyeliners. The conventional eyeliner was replaced with artistic and floating eyeliners and we loved it. Plus, black was rarely the choice for lining eyes. Pastel and bright coloured eyeliners sizzled on the ramp. Try Lakmé Eyeconic Kajal in Royal Blue for this trend.
Winter gives you amazing, no-sweat skin so why not just flaunt that? No-makeup look with glowing and radiant cheekbones is as effortless as it sounds. Good thing it’s a hot trend right now. The faux winter glow is easy to achieve. Apply liquid highlighter before foundation on your face and cover it with a water-based foundation. Highlight the highest points of cheekbones and apply a light blush to look naturally glowing from within.
The quintessential red goes well with the winter vibe too. Go bold with rich red matte lips or OTT with ombre lips by mix-and-matching red with shades like orange or pink. You can also dab some red lipstick onto your cheeks and eyelids to achieve the monochrome makeup look. Try Lakmé 9 to 5 Naturale Matte Sticks Lipstick in Scarlet Lane for the red hot look.
Game of neons
Light up the dull and gloomy winter nights with bright neon colours. Neon pink and orange in makeup are a hit this season. This trend is all about an 80s #rocknroll. Sport the neon look using bright pink eyes or tangerine lips (or both if you’re feeling EXTRA) for your next night-out.
