Winter Makeup Looks You Need to Try Before Spring

The official countdown to spring has begun and we’re already starting to plan those light and bright makeup looks. But before we break out the fuchsia lipstick and neon eyeliner, let’s take advantage of these last few weeks of winter. Give the cold and snowy season a proper farewell by trying out these three hot winter makeup trends. It ain’t over ‘til it’s over!

Winter Makeup

Oxblood Lips 

Winter is all about the deep, dark makeup tones and we KNOW you’ve seen and heard all about this color. So now all you gotta do is give it a whirl! There are multiple avenues you can take with this deep wine shade, but the easiest way to work it into your makeup routine is by rocking it on your lips! Try swiping on an oxblood lippie the next time you step out for the night!

Gold Smoky Eye 

OK, OK, so you’ve mastered the classic charcoal smoky eye look. Great! But have you kicked it up a notch yet? Before the season of barbeques and beach days kicks in, try a festive holiday look for funsies! Go above and beyond with a pretty gold smoky eye that screams winter glam!

Matte Makeup

Come spring and summer, your skin will probably be light and dewy 24/7, so why not end winter with a bang by going for the polar opposite. Grab a matte foundation, eye shadow and lipstick and rock a glow-free complexion for a bit. You gotta get it out of your system, right?
