The best of winter beauty is red lips, metallic or sheen-heavy lids, and creamy, glowing skin and cheeks. Bold and Beautiful eyes and lips are what winter is all about. Powder products often exacerbate dried out, winter skin, so stick with creamier, smoother beauty items.
These incredible makeup products will surely help you avoid the winter blues.
Gucci Eye Infinite Precision Liner & Brush: This versatile formula is everything. Create the absolutely best sleek wing or the most sensuous, wintery smoky halo. Use with the brand’s 23 Angled Brush for a more precise application. It’s easy, instant glam and pairs perfectly with red lipstick.
Shiseido Rouge Rouge Lipstick: Speaking of red lipstick, paint your pucker with vibrant and moisturizing red color this season…because you want to be extra festive. Rouge Rouge by Shiseido is my go-to collection when it comes to quintessential reds. There are 16 red shades included here — go find yours. I promise something in this set will suit you to a “T.” Also note that bold red lips will be on trend for Spring 2017, so get right on trend now!
Palladio Silk FX Eyeshadow Palettes: These gorgeous palettes feature a liquid-to-powder formula. The illuminating crystals let you intensify your eyes with day-to-night combos that’ll give your peepers some extra pow!
Revlon Colorstay Creme Eye Shadow: Cream shadows are a personal favorite for any season. But in winter, they’re my No. 1 choice. There’s nothing prettier than a dewy, creamy wash of color on your lids. These luxurious and long-wear shadows have a built-in-brush to keep messes to a minimum.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation: Skin tends to be drier in the winter, so this hydrating foundation is a great option to get a beautiful glow and to even out your skin tone.
L’Oreal Paris Visible Lift Color Lift Blush: This budget blush will keep your cheeks bright and youthful… like you just came in from a long, brisk walk in the frigid air.
Maybelline The Falsies Push Up Angel Mascara: Every season calls for a new mascara. Toss old tubes and grab this one. It will give you lashes for days.
