Do wear dark lipsticks

One of the best things about winter makeup is taking out that standout lipstick shades and play with them. During this season, opt for darker lip shades such as burgundy, plum, wine and deep red. These shades are perfect for winter. Avoid wearing warmer lip shades as they signal warmer weather.

Do check for foundation shade

This is a very common mistake people make when it comes to winter makeup. Wearing the right foundation is the key to achieve a flawless look. Our skin becomes lighter during winters, so the foundation you were using in the summer might not work for you in the winter. It is better to invest in a new foundation to complement the natural colour of your skin. 

Don’t use too many powder products

Our skin tends to get drier during winters so it is good to avoid powder products which will only make your skin dry. Choose moisturizing versions of the powder products such as cream blushes, highlighters and bronzers. This will help you achieve the perfect winter look without making your skin dry.

Do opt for copper and gold eyeshadow

Gold and bronze eyeshadows are perfect for fall and winter. Moreover, these colours can easily transition from a day to night look. Add a little bit of shimmer to the eyes and complete the look with a dark lip. This simple yet standout look is great for parties and can be worn in the day with a nude lip.

Don’t use purple or blue to line your waterline

Purple and blue eyeliners look amazing but unfortunately, they don’t look so happening during the winter season. Instead, opt for the classic black kohl eyeliner – you can play around with it and create a cat-eye as well. This look can never go wrong.
