There is a bit of the old and new, but they all are great and fairly simple to do. If you love to experiment with makeup and need new ideas to try, then continue reading. 

1) Natural Makeup Look 

In the winter months, people tend to wear more makeup, because it is harder to pull off stunning and colorful looks in the summer heat. Despite the usual trend of deep and plum colors for the fall and winter makeup, many have been enjoying the fresh face look. This is the perfect everyday look that literally anyone can try. No matter your age or skin type, this look is very achievable and would be a great addition to anybody’s makeup vault. 


2) Dewy Skin 

Cold weather usually brings dry and flaky skin. Makeup wearers pile on moisturizer and focus on obtaining dewy skin. Dewy skin is difficult for people with oily skin, so winter is the best time to try and achieve the look for everyone. The overall look is to promote a look of health and glow to your skin. This makeup is great for almost all skin types. Just play around with moisturizing and luminizing products to get this glowy look.

3) Bold or Graphic Liner 

There are multiple ways to experiment with this trend.  You can experiment with color, shape, or size. You can make it as bold or as subtle as you want. If you are someone who does not like being the center of attention, but you would love to try this out, I would suggest attempting a winged liner in another color than black. The makeup look showcased below is also a great and wearable look for pretty much everyone. 


4) Red Lip 

A red lip is the most iconic and universal look for the holidays. It is also the most adaptive makeup look. Just a few tweaks to customize it for your skin tone and undertone is all you need. A true looks great on everyone, but there are different hues you can get to exchange your beauty. Blue reds are great to make your teeth look white and look great with pale skin. Orangey reds look bomb on golden and olive-toned skin.

5) Muted Smoky Eye 

This look is best for girls that want to wear a smoky eye, but they fear being too bold in certain occasions. A muted smoky eye is a smoky eye that is more toned down. Instead of using dark and deep colors, swap them out for brown and other soft neutral colors. Also remember to smoke out our bottom lash line, because it really adds more seduction to the look/  It is a great look to have in your arsenal for that Holiday party at work or for that date you have coming up. It has all the sensuality of a smoky eye but toned down to be more wearable. 


6) Berry Lip 

Deep, berry lips have always been the rage during the cooler months, and that is because it looks good on almost everybody. All of the different shades of berry can tie your look together and give you the added edge that you may need. You can customize this look to make it wearable by downplaying your eye shadow. Cream or golden eye shadows would complement a berry lip quiet well. Dark lip colors can be scary, but if you are willing to try, give it a go and have fun with it.

7) Glossy Nude/ Pink Lip 

Is the berry lip not quite your thing? Need something a little more subtle? A glossy lip could be your new thing. For a while, everyone was crazy about matte lips, but times are changing. The glossy look is quickly making its way back to the forefront. Glossy lips were re-popularized this summer, and the trend is still going strong well into the colder months. The look is very natural and could be paired with whatever makeup you are comfortable with and still look classic and stunning.

8) Glittery Eyes

Every holiday season makeup brand come out with tons of shimmery eye shadow palettes for the holidays, this year is no exception. Nothing says, “Happy Holidays,” like a golden glittery eye shadow look. Golden and neutral shimmery colors are simpler and easy to pair with a lip combo with. But if you are a girl that loves color, you can always pick the color according to your eye color. Brown eyes look best with purple and earthy colors, like emerald green. Blue eyes look best with pink and grey. Green eyes look best with yellow, orange and brown shadows.

9) Big Lashes 

Is there such a thing as lashes that are too big? Not this season. Big lashes have been in trend for a while, but the latest eyelashes craze are wispy lashes. They can make your eyes look bigger, and they are great if you want to wear lashes but still show off your eyeshadow look that you worked for hard to create. These lashes are different because the focus more on the length instead of volume.


10) Soft, less structured eyebrows 

This is also called the “boy brows.” When the makeup scene became very popular, people loved sporting the structured and chiseled brows. If you have not tried this brow look already, well now is your chance. It is pretty easy and gives an effortless look. This look is great for people that have busy brows that they love, but feel like they still need to conform to the beauty of standard of “refined” brows.
