Make Up & Beauty Trends For Winter 2013

Winter is coming so it is time to get prepared for the oncoming fashion trends for the coldest part of the year. There are many styles that are in right now, all the way from the catwalk and red carpet to the humble high street, and it can be confusing keeping up with what’s trending in makeup. But this is why this nifty little guide is here, so that you can find out what is hot!

Vampire Colour Lips

The hottest shades of lipsticks at the moment are colours that give a vampire like look. This includes striking wine red lips, plum purple and various shades of dark and purpley reds. These shades are right on trend at the moment but you can also use soft rose pink lipstick too. Experiment and choose a colour that really suits you and your face.

Bold Eyebrows

Thick eyebrows have been a steadily growing fashion style for a few months now but they are here to stay at least a while longer. Bold and wild eyebrows are easy to wear since all you have to do is stop trimming and attending to your brows. This look is quite divisive but some ladies can really pull off the bold brow look, so why not give it a try?

Peach And Pink Blusher

Skin inevitably gets paler in the winter due to the lack of sunlight so a great way to complement the loss of colour is by using a suitably lighter shade. Peachy and gentle pink blushers make the perfect substitute for your usual colours during the cold season and happen to be highly fashionable at the moment, so long as they are used subtly. These shades can help to make your face appear brighter in dull weather.

Smokey Eyes

Smokey and smouldering looking eyes are all the rage right now, so make sure to stock up on plenty of dark coloured eyeshadow, eyeliner and even lipstick to add a stronger effect. Obviously black is an essential colour for this look, but grey, green, silver and blue also work great too. The great thing about the smokey eye look is that you can choose how you want to wear it.

Back To The 60’s

1960s makeup is heavy on the eyes, with dramatic, defined shadow and doll-like lashes. Flickr

Makeup styles of the 60’s are back once again and some of the decade’s signature techniques have become a part of the winter fashion trends. Thick curled lashes are a trademark of the 60’s and pale or nude lipsticks and creams are ideal for drawing attention to the eyes and adding subtle colour to paler skin. This retro look is one that is most welcome in its return.

Cat Eyes

The perfect cat eyeliner is ever fashionable, very flattering for most eye shapes and delivers a sultry, mysterious look. Flickr

Feline looking eyes is a fashion style that goes all the way back to the Egyptians but it is been resurrected for this season once more. Catlike eyes are achieved by using eyeliner and eye pencil to create feline statement lines with a curve from the corner of the eye and by wearing long curled lashes. Cat eyes are a stunning look that is easy to recreate and use so it is a great trend to get on board with, particularly if you are a cat lover!

Au Naturel

Creating a nude skin effect and maintaining the illusion of being barefaced is a great look at the moment that enhances your natural beauty. Creating the effect is simple and all that is required are pale or gentle colours that match your skin tone, and the idea is to give the impression of bright and healthy looking natural skin.

These are some of the most interesting fashion choices of the season and ones you can easily recreate and implement into your own style. So be prepared to enhance your cosmetic collection with the hottest makeup for this coming season.
