Winter Makeup Essentials

Summer is over (and so are those uncomfortable heatwaves!) and now, Winter is well and truly coming, meaning that it’s time to update and stock up on some winter makeup essentials for your collection. 

When it comes to updating your makeup range for the upcoming season, it’s important to make sure you have products that will help boost your complexion, as well as keeping your face moisturised and hydrated. Currently, dark and pigmented tones are in and on trend this season, so invest in these shades to take your look to the next level. 

Here are some winter makeup essentials you didn’t know you needed: 

All about that hydrating base 

The winter chill will make your face much more prone to dryness, so it’s important to use a hydrating base before applying the rest of your makeup. It’s best to choose a concealer and/or foundation that gives your face a dewy finish, as well as using a smoothing primer beforehand to help the foundation and/or concealer ‘sit’ or ‘rest’ on the face. 

A face elixir in your makeup bag will allow you to spritz your face and keep it quenched while on the go. 

Lip scrub and lip balm = the perfect pair

The colder temperature can cause our lips to dry out and crack, so keeping them exfoliated and moisturised is essential in the cold weather. Exfoliate your lips with a lip scrub to buff away dead skin and apply lip balm regularly to keep your lips nourished. 

A cheeky cheek tint 

Give your cheeks a natural rosy glow with a cheek tint. Whether you’re opting for a day-to-day minimal makeup look or going for something a little more glamorous for the upcoming festive parties, a hint of pink hues on your cheeks will add beauty to your complexion. Alternatively, use a highlighter to give your face a luminous and sun-kissed glow. 

Dark, deep, daring red lipsticks 

Bold red lips and deep berry lips are common trends for the winter season and are perfect for Christmas, so choose a dark-coloured lipstick with a satin or matte finish. To accentuate your bold lips, apply lip liner before applying your chosen lipstick. 

Jewel-toned eyeshadows 

For a glamorous makeup look for any of your upcoming festivities, apply a jewel-toned eyeshadow – along with mascara and eyeliner – to make your eyes pop more than ever. Choose from a range of metallic and gem-toned hues, such as pink, purple, gold, blue, peach and green. 

Glittery nail polish 

Keep your nails in check this winter and make them sparkle with some glitter nail polish. Apply the polish on its own, or apply as a top coat after applying a dark-coloured nail polish (burgundy is a good choice).
