4 Makeup Trends to Try Over Winter Break

0
0

Long breaks are the perfect time to give a different beauty regimen a shot—like a makeup trend you've never dared test before. It's an opportunity to figure out new looks that work for you... and learn which ones definitely don't. Plus, you'll be experimenting in the confines of your own home, so if the look doesn't quite hit the mark, nobody will know except for you. Need some makeup inspiration to get started? Below, we've put together the looks we can't wait to try this break!

Majestic Metallics

This pink/purple metallic eyeshadow that Tia Mowry has going on is a wonderful look that transitions wonderfully from fall to winter. You can make it as dramatic or subtle as you want it to be; it all depends on how much pigment and eyeliner you use.

Get the Look:

  • Make sure your face is matte as opposed to dewy so that the attention can be focused on your eyes.
  • Using NARS Duo Eyeshadow in Violetta ($35), apply the lighter color onto the inner V of your eye and blend up and outwards to the lids.
  • With the darker color, apply to the outer V of your eye and then blend inwards to your lids to achieve a daytime look.
  • For a nighttime look, apply more of the darker color to your lid and then add a metallic/shimmery plum (such as Sephora Collection Colorful Eyeshadow Shimmer in No. 33 Dying For Shoes, $13) in the outer V. Blend that into your crease.
  • Don't forget to finish it off with eyeliner and mascara!
  • To complete the look, just add a dab of your everyday go-to gloss, or a rosy gloss, such as Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gloss in Rose Petal ($14).

Leggy Lashes

All we want for Christmas is to learn how to recreate Kim K's look in about the 5 minutes we have from rolling out of bed in the morning to running to class. Fake lashes are a trend that, we believe, will never go out of style. The trick to perfecting them? Practice, practice, practice. As for wearing them during the day? Less is more.

Get the Look:

Glamorously Gothic

For a modern take on the gothic look, we look to Evan Rachel Wood for inspiration. This cool look is a more polished version of that middle school phase most of us went through, when we had no idea what exactly we were doing with makeup. Evan matches her lips to her eyes, which looks eerily fabulous.

Color Craze

Adding some color is always a fun way to drastically change up your eye look from day to day. If you have a colorful eyeshadow palette, your possibilities are endless (and cheaper than buying each eyeliner color separately)! The only thing that limits you is your own imagination. Use this break to experiment with a whole slew of colors and combinations. An icy blue is sure to turn heads as you hit up this season's holiday parties. You can even channel Peta Murgatroyd and match your eyes to your jewelry.
