I always love winter because of the color shades for this season: something muted, mature, something high fashion. Being a student with lots of morning classes, I am thankful for winter to come so I can wear my makeup with all the colors I love and be rushing in the same time because you can’t go wrong with it! It will never be too bright, under-blended or something.
So here is my go-to makeup look this cuffing season!
It’s simple, it’s nice and it’s ON TREND!
My skin has lots of pimples and acne scars, to have an airbrushed skin, I used Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. This is my all time favorite foundation because it blends so well and the coverage is on point! You can see the swatch (before and after) here . Even in the winter time, my face is still oily as hell so I always need a powder, I used Origins Brighter by Nature, it does a good job in oil controlling.
One thing I will never go out without is my eyebrows makeup, it should be on fleek! Girls if I don’t put anything on my eyebrows, you will barely see them! Since months I’ve been using Benefits eyebrows shaping kit (see the swatches here) and I will keep using it until I hit pan because I am in LOVE with it! This product does provide every tool you need for your eyebrows: a wax, a powder, 2 brushes and 1 tweezer. It holds up through out my day and gives me a natural looking brows.
The eyeshadow game is quite simple here, I just applied Maybelline Color tattoo eyeshadow in the color Bad to the Bronze all over the lid and up in the crease with my finger. (see the swatches here) It gave my hooded eyes more dimension without being too harsh. Finished my eye makeup with strong curls from Shu Uemura lash curler and Rimmel Scandal eyes mascara (see review here). Unfortunately, this mascara sucks!
The winter time doesn’t stop me from a bronzy look. I used Physicians Formula bronze booster bronzer everyday to get some colors and dimension for my face without stepping up a contour game. (see swatches here). This bronzer looks really nice and natural in person, it’s not too orangey nor too red.
These days I have huge love for blushes and I keep buying them even though I will never use all of it. Especially when I just need one blush to go with all my looks!! Yes, I’m talking about Tarte Amazonian clay blush in Exposed! It’s a type of nude that everyone can wear for any occasion.
Finished up my look with Stila liquid lipstick in Amore (see swatches here). This color is SO winter-y and high fashion! It’s kind of Kylie Jenner’s color, but better because of a slight plum hint! This color is in a warm tone that I’m so thankful of it! All the Jenner colors I saw lately were in a cooler side and it doesn’t look good with my Asian skin
So that was my go-to makeup look and it seriously took me 15 minutes maximum to do it (in sleepy mode though)! What is your winter makeup look? Please share with me I love to read about it!
Have a good day! xoxo
