Winter Makeup

This tutorial is part of my Winter Makeup post for Lipstick and Muffin Media. Watch the tutorial or read more below.

As the weather is getting colder, my makeup routine has changed slightly compared to my Summer makeup. In the Summer, I tend to go with a slightly more matte foundation since my skin gets oilier, and definitely a brighter and more colourful looks. In the Winter, as my skin gets a little bit more drier, I opt for a more luminous finish and darker bolder lip colours.

For today’s tutorial, I’m playing around with different textures & finishes. While the eyes (shimmery & matte) and lips (suede) might be bold, I’m keeping my base pretty light and luminous. To keep the makeup looking fresh, I added a rosy cheeks to tie the whole look together.

The look itself is inspired by old Hollywood glam – winged liners and red lips. It’s still a classic look, and I think you can do no wrong with a classic. In the Summer, I’d probably create a thinner softer winged liner, or I’d even skip the winged liner altogether and pair this look with a brighter red lips, or even perhaps an orange one. However, for Winter makeup, as I’ve said before, I go for a darker bolder lip colour. I paired this lip colour with a strong bold winged liner, and I also added a smudge of black eyeshadow along the lower lid to add a bit more intensity to the look.

Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this look! Don’t forget to check out the list of products used below.
