At the start of this year, I wanted to create a series of looks throughout 2017 to give inspirations for wearable makeup ideas with the varying seasons. I’m a bit late to this one, but there’s still one month of winter left and lots of time to rock a bold deep lip. For today’s post, I’m providing a tutorial and inspo for a winter makeup look featuring bright eyes and bold lips!
I actually really love wearing bold lip colors and winter is the perfect time for it! I feel like it instantly makes me look more put together and as if I actually spent time getting ready.
I am using the Quo Eyeshadow Palette in No Pressure which is a spring 2017 launch for this winter makeup look. There are four light shimmery shades in this palette. The pigmentation is pretty sheerbut since I’m going for an every day look, it works out well. I patted the taupe shade all over the lid and then I went for extra brightness by putting down the golden shade in the center of my lids.
I used the March Jacobs Highliner in Blacquer to tightline my eyes. Since I want to create a bright look, I didn’t want to take up my lid space with black liner.
Equally important is what you do on the bottom lashline to complete the look. I used the Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Amber Haze about 2/3 of the way through. Then I used the bright gold color on the inside 1/3 of the eyes. I find lining the bottom half of the eye helps to balance out the look and a lot of people skip this step!
Winter makeup is not complete without some statement making lips. I’m using the Ciate London Liquid Velvet in Pin Up and it’s the most gorgeous brick red color. It has a hint of the trendy brown but has more berry in it to make it wearable for every day. The formula is really great and I’ve previously reviewed it on the blog. You can also choose any of your favorite bold dark shades as the rest of the look is so neutral.
I finished off the rest of my face with the Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Lashes Mascara and Pixi Beauty Sheer Cheek Gel to keep things simple.
Hope you guys enjoyed this look and I can’t wait to starting creating some spring makeup ideas!
