Winter Makeup Trends in 3 Looks

While fall was all gold accents, plum lips and winged eyeliner... winter is going to be something more fabulous. I've put together a few snapshots of what sort of seasonal looks we'll see everywhere in the very near future. After all, Christmas is almost a month away and winter is as good as here!

Look #1 - Metallics and Illuminating Powders

We see LipstickOnYourPillow has kept the plum lips of fall and paired it with bright metallics on the eyelid, and a shimmer on the cheek. Bright metallics has been the thing to do recently, and every winter we see the same trend. It's also no coincidence that we're coming into winter and the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders are flying off the shelves. The average lady probably won't rock quite as dewy of a look as LoYP did above, but that lit-from-within glow makes everyone look sexy.

Look #2 - Super Natural

I think the next trend this winter will be a super natural look. Full brows, minimal blush or bronzer where the blush usually goes, and a frosty nude lip (paired with illuminating powders or highlighters). We all lament the passing of summer, and even in the throws of frigid winter I think we'll see a lot of no-makeup or super-natural makeup looks around.

Look #3 - Vibrant & Quirky

Come the holidays, every woman with an inner diva has to rock a red lip. I'll be looking for more orange/red-toned red lips instead of the cooler berry-toned or deep plummy looks of fall. I think we'll see a lot of color blocking with reds and blues or silvers on the face and not much between. It's fun, it's festive and it's unexpected. What more could a beauty ask for?

I hope everyone out there has a bright and beautiful holiday season. Thank you for your time, and stay beYOUtiful!
