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!
Black Sooty Eye
You’ve mastered charcoal and have lived in your nudes, but have your gone to the dark side? If not, now’s the time to go for it. Black smudgy eyes that have a shiny finish are the perfect wintery slick update to the classic smoky eye.
Dark Lip Colors
Winter brings on dead-of-night darkness by 5pm, which makes it the ideal season to try richer, deeper colors on your lips. Sexy, bold and statement-making, they work for all skin tones and range from deep chocolates to black cherry and violet.

Winter skin can often look and feel dull, dry and lifeless. What better way to amp up your coloring, boost your glow and hydrate your skin than with a blush that sinks in and imparts a natural-looking sheen. While it’s still cold outside go for shades of pink or red, which mimic that rosy blush you’d get from an all-out day of skiing.
