The start of a new year is the perfect time to try out something new and bold. This winter, you can try out any one of the many new and daring makeup trends to add an exciting pop to any outfit.
1. Bold lips – Bold lips are making a comeback this season. Deep reds, burgundies, and even plums are the colors to wear right now. These lipsticks are an excellent way to add color to any outfit, and they’re not too bright or out of place for the grey winter days. The colors go from day to night seamlessly, making it an extremely versatile look. On the other end of the spectrum, pale lips are becoming increasingly popular. A soft, dull lip lends itself nicely to a combination with soft, natural skin, and a dramatic, darker eye.
2. Winged eyeliner – While it’s hardly a new trend for the season, winged eyeliner is still continuing on strong. The thing that gives this look its lasting power is its versatility. It looks perfect with almost any outfit. Thick line or thin, it adds touch of elegance and class to any ensemble. And, to compliment you’re liner, why not try out some of the season’s best shadow? Metallics are becoming increasingly popular as they can glam up any outfit and add an interesting twist in seconds.
3. Statement brows – With the rise of the new it-girl of the moment, Cara Delevingne, girls started embracing more natural brows hoping to emulate the 20-year-old’s signature look. Dark, statement brows have been showing up everywhere from red carpets to runways.
4. Dewy skin – Are you trying to figure out the perfect backdrop to all of these fabulous new looks? Try out a fresh, dewy complexion. It’s perfect either on it’s own or glammed up!
