7 Recommendations To Keep Up With These Makeup Trends
Whether you're ready or not, winter is around the corner and now we have to bid farewell to sunny days and humid monsoons. While most of us have a season which we prefer more; here are a few things which we should keep in mind during the transition of the seasons. It's now the time for cosy sweatshirts, Christmas lights and new year parties with our favourite new makeup looks.
In order to prepare ourselves for the festive season ahead, we have combined a few winter makeup trends which you might see in many parties and on social media. These are inspired from metallic 90s eyelids to shiny and bold lip colours. We’re going to give you tips and tricks and product picks which will help you in recreating these trends. Since summer makeup trends will never go out of style - flushed cheeks and natural, no makeup skin will also be included in these trends. Let's start!
If you live for summer’s golden hour glow, then this is the perfect makeup look for you to try. Dewy skin - which looks glazed isn't going anywhere anytime soon. We recommend that you invest into a good hydrating range of skincare products and prep your skin respectfully. Using a moisturiser such as the Gush Beauty Glow Getter Moisturiser will definitely help since it is a makeup primer and moisturiser, in one product itself. It gives you a natural rosy tint for you to obtain a no makeup look.
As it is rightly said, it’s all about a pop of pink! This trend is a quick way to revive life into the face and apples of the cheek. Here, it is better to use a cream blush formula which actually ends up blending better than powders and gives out a radiant look. One of our go-to-products for this is the Ilana Dream Blush - Cream Blush & Lip Tint With Hyaluronic Acid & Aloe Vera (Peachy Peach). This is a long-lasting, easy to blend lightweight gel which will give your cheeks, eyelids and lips a very seamless and creamy, matte finish colour. You just have to dot, blend and glow; it is available in 5 poppy colours.
Brands have now started creating a range of lip products which promise to give that extra shine, suggesting that vinyl lips will still dominate this season. Bold lips actually end up highlighting the texture of the lips & the tone around the mouth. It's best to start with a lip care routine to get best results.
Step 1 - Exfoliation, followed by colour correction if it is needed.
Step 2 - Use a lip pencil and map out the shape of your lips.
Step 3 - Apply lipstick with a lip brush so it looks professional.
We would recommend lip products such as the Kiro Lush Moist Matte Long Lasting Lipstick, Hibiscus Petal (Berry Pink) which is a combination of nourishing natural oils and intense pigments. You have the power to transform your entire look with just a simple swipe.
This is the best way to do a spin on an old-school classic makeup look. Not only can you experiment with your eyeliner shape, you can also add bright colours which can add a fun and playful twist to your look. It can be pastel shades since they are in full swing currently or even blues to violets. You can opt for the Disguise Cosmetics Velvet Glow Multistick | Rose Gold Stormborn or the Gush Beauty Eye Love To Glow Set which definitely works well as a highlighter, eyeshadow or eyeliner for that matter.
The Gush Beauty set consists of an eyeliner and a glow moisturiser which works very well for those who want to blur skin imperfections. The eye liner is actually a double ended achiever; being a kohl pencil on one side & a felt tip on the other!
If you want shades that will accentuate your beautiful eye colour, this is the makeup trend for you! Giving a fresh approach to sultry eyeliner looks, this tries on jewel-toned hues like rich blues, violet and gold which give depth and dimension; leading to a powerful makeup look. In order to incorporate this into your makeup routine, you can try the Disguise Cosmetics Satin Smooth Eyeshadow - Metallic Pink Rose 208 which is a talc-free eyeshadow powder. Available in individual shades, this gives out a super pigmented look and allows your lids to shimmer and shine!
One can also try different textures at one time; be it matte-finish or glossy finish or dewy finish. In order to get shimmery eyelids, add a cream blush or an eye gloss. You need to be extremely mindful about how you highlight your face too. Focus on the sides of your face in order to ensure some parts of your face look flattering! Use the Kiro Prism Perfect Duo Highlighter Sandy Rose to witness a luminescing miracle & find your new makeup box staple. This highlighter helps in taking you from a natural glow to a glamorous party look. You can also try the Ilana Celestial Pop Cream Highlighter + Luminizer - Sun which is the most natural glow you can find. It doesn't crack, flake or dry out your skin and is the perfect bronze shade match for Indian skin tones.
In this season, less is sometimes considered more. One should kickstart Christmas and New Year festivities by opting for lightweight formulas which keep the skin tone even and comfortable. Opting for cream products or a tinted serum actually helps in keeping the skin hydrated and feeling great all day. You can opt for the Ilana Soft Blur Cream Concealer & Foundation With SPF 50 (Beach Please) which conceals, protects and leads to flawless skin. You can use a brush or even the tips of your fingers to blend this into your skin.
What matters is that we are improving our choices on a day-to-day basis and inspiring others in the process. Each of these brands have cruelty-free products and will surely help in saving the environment. Have fun this winter season but also ensure that you are doing your best when it comes to taking care of the environment! We hope you enjoy following these trends as much as we enjoyed listing them down!
