I always like to change up my makeup with the seasons, normally for Winter I like to go for richer shades like gold eyes or berry lips! Not only do they add a festive pop but they also help inject a little life into my makeup as in Winter I’m normally super pale and my skin can get quite dry! Here is my go to look right now…
I really like to keep things simple for everyday as normally I don’t have much time for makeup. I always start by filling in my brows, for a softer look I use the Soap and Glory Archery 2-in-1 Brow Pencil and Brush in the shade Dark Chocolate. For the lid I like to first use a warm brown through the crease, my favourite shade is MAC Soft Brown. I then apply a soft simmery colour all over the lid, this deep gold is my favourite right now, it’s a Morphe Pressed Pigment in Socially Broken. Then using a small angled brush I pressed some black eyeshadow along the lash line, I always like to do this if I’m not doing liner as it helps you lashes look fuller! To finish the eyes I applied a nude liner to the lower lash water line and applied some Benefit They’re Real Mascara.
For my skin I like to use a hydrating and illuminating primer like MAC Strobecream, I then go in with a lightweight foundation – NARS Sheer Glow is still my favourite even in Winter! For concealer I use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla and set it using the Kat Von D Lock It Brightening Powder in Petal. I always set my foundation using the Kat Von D Lock It Setting Powder before using the Urban Decay Shapeshifter Palette to highlight and contour. I don’t usually apply bronzer in Winter, instead I’ll use a brown coloured blush like MAC Harmony.
For my lips I love a good mauve tone, here I’m wearing one of the New Look Velvet Matte Lipstick Crayons in Toffee Apple but MAC Velvet Teddy is one of my favourites! If I’m after a berry tone I love the Kate Moss for Rimmel Matte Lipstick in 107!
What’s your favourite look for everyday?
