BEAUTY TREND; WARM UP YOUR WINTER MAKEUP ROUTINE.


MAXMAY_LAUREN2
The colder months have a way of wiping out your complexion – making it look dull and drab. Put a spring back in your look and turn up the heat in your Winter makeup routine with a few easy products and techniques!

Skin

Just because it’s Winter doesn’t mean you have to succumb to looking pale and pasty. Adding a vibrant gold luminizer to the high points of your face OR to your foundation, will add warmth and light to dull skin, for a more all over glow. I applied a pea seize amount of Laura Mercier’s Radiance Primer all over the skin before applying my Laura Mercier Silk Créme Foundation. Tip; To really make the skin glow I squirt a little more into the  foundation before applying it! 

Lips

It can be as simple as changing up your lip colour with Summery lip-stains like this Ellis Faas Hot Lips in Bright Orange. You can either apply as a solid long-wear lippy like I did here, or dab onto lips and wear as more of a stain. Either way, there is no denying this colour is one of the hottest colours on the scene right now.

Eyes

Summer may feel like a long time away, but with the right shades to add to your Winter cat eye it will feel like it never left! Blend Estée Lauder’s Pure Colour Gel Eyeshadow in Cyber Copper over your lids and up into the contour of the eye to give them the pick-me-up they deserve. Note; I used Revlon’s Colorstay Liquid Eyeliner Pen to perfect this subtle cat eye liquid liner. To master the Cat Eye Liner checkout my How-To guide here!
