Winter is here! With its chilly temps and snow-filled skies, it's not only time to swap out your wardrobe to seasonally appropriate ensembles...your makeup needs a boost, too! The most recent winter 2022 trends in beauty are here, and they're looking better than ever! This season, there's something for everyone, whether you want a subtle everyday look or a dramatic party-ready one. Below is our list of the twelve hottest makeup looks trending right now, ranging from classic red lips to wintry plum eyeshadow paired with magnetic lashes that will brighten up any gloomy, sweater-weather day.
Winter Look #1: Bold Red Lips
What could be more timelessly elegant than sporting a bold red lip once wintertime drops? This look is perfect for those who want to add a dose of glamour to their everyday style. The key to nailing this look is finding the perfect shade of red lipstick for your skin tone. If you have a cooler skin tone, opt for a red lippie with a blue-ish undertone. For warm-toned beauties, go for a red lipstick with orange/peach undertones.
Winter Look #2: Glossy Lips
Clear, sleek, high-shine gloss is a gorgeous way to add a little oomph to your pout. Swipe on some clear gloss and call it a day for those who prefer more subtle makeup looks! Or, wear your favorite lipstick shade and top it off with a glassy finish. This simple winter look is great for everyday glam or an evening out in the city with friends.
Winter Look # 3: Brow Definition
If you're looking to take your winter look up a notch or two, try center-stage eyebrows. Filling them in correctly frames your eyes, gives them lift, and brings your whole look together, whether you're wearing a full face of makeup or letting your brows speak for themselves. Use a brow gel for a more natural look or a brow pencil for precise definition.
Winter Look #4: Glowing Skin
Achieving a natural glow during the dry, skin-parching winter months can be tricky, but it's doable. Start by hydrating the skin before applying foundation. Use a highlighter above your cheekbones, cupid's bow, brow bone, and nose bridge. The key to this look is glow...not shine (skip the sparkles, please). A light dusting of face powder helps set dewiness in place while keeping your skin shine-free throughout day.
Winter Look #5: Classic Cat Eye Liner
This look is always in style, and it's perfect for winter. The key to a great cat eye is using a good eyeliner with a precise tip. The MoxieLash Magnetic Eyeliner in black features a thin tip that's extremely easy to use. It creates a sharp line that doesn't smudge or fade throughout the day—plus, it holds on magnetic lashes for 24 hours.
Winter Look #6: Berry Lips & Sultry Eyes
Bordeaux, wine, cranberry--whatever you want to call it, this deep burgundy lip color is super trendy for winter. To get the perfect berry lip, start by lining your lips with a dark liner pencil. Then fill in your lips with the lipstick, blotting afterward to create a stain-like effect. Paired with a subtle smoky eye, you'll have a chillingly-good, cold-weather look.
Winter Look #7: Flushed 70's Cheeks
Forget about the apple of your cheeks. That flushed look is now hitting a higher beat. Create the look by blending a cream blush to your upper cheek, right under your cheekbone.
Winter Look #8: Metallic Lids
The sparkle and shine of a metallic eyelid is perfect for winter. It's not too heavy, but it still gives you that extra something special to make your eyes stand out in the cold weather! Shades in gold, copper and rose gold add gorgeous dimension to any eye shape.
Winter Look #9: Punk-Rock Liner
Kourtney Kardashian isn't the only one feeling liberated with her punky looks—we are too. One of the biggest winter trends for 2022 is bold, extra-dark black liner. Think gothic, but more refined—black liner along your upper lash-line, lower lash-line, and of course...your waterline.
Winter Look #10: Chocolate Brown Lashes
Give your black eyelashes a break for a moment, Chocolate Brown magnetic lashes are here, and they're delicious. Beyond being easy to use and comfortable to wear, they'll give your eyes a boost of dark, rich color that will warm you up from head to toe. Apply them in seconds, wear them for 24 hours.
Winter Look #11: Ombre Eyeshadow
You might have seen the Tik-Tok trend that makes getting an ombre eyeshadow look easier than ever—well, it works, and it is incredibly easy. Just apply three of your favorite winter colors from lightest to darkest, starting at the inner eye. Use a blender eyeshadow brush to blend the colors together to soften the transition from one color to the next.
Winter Look #12: Monochromatic Lips, Cheeks, Eyes
Simple doesn't have to be boring. The modern, monochromatic look for winter blends sophistication with an effortless vibe. Apply a lip, cheek, and eyeshadow shade with a similar color. Swipe on some mascara and go, or add a touch of glam with magnetic lashes.
