As New Year’s Eve is fast approaching, we are giving you some hints on how to get the perfect look on the craziest night of the year. This season, it is easier than ever to be fashionable. The accent is on either your eyes, or your lips, but never both. Plus, there are several different makeup trends, so everyone will find the one that suits them the most. We have smoky eyes, glittery and shimmery eye shadows, the ever fashionable cat eyes are back in grand style, and so are the bold dark red lips. One thing to keep in mind is that you should not match your makeup with the party outfit. It is a huge fashion no-no. If you are wearing prints and colours, the makeup should stick to neutral, and vice versa.
Here are the hottest holiday trends.
1. All-Over Matte Look
Dewy skin has been a standard for years, especially during summer. But trying to keep your skin fresh and glossy without looking greasy is painstaking for people with oily skin. This holiday season they have a reason to rejoice. The biggest takeaway from fashion shows was matte look. We are talking about deliberate and all-over matte look, but not the chalk-covered faces. It is more of a minimalist approach to makeup that includes a primer and mattifying face powder in the right shade. You can pair it with matte eyeshadow and matte lipstick, but it is better if you can go without.
2. Add Shimmer
Sparkles, shimmers, glitters , sequins – these should be your mantra this winter. Add drama to your look with silver, gold, or bronze metallic eye shadow. Think of your lids as of a canvas and apply the shadow all over them. Do not refrain from combining more colours. Creamy shadows are more dense and lasting, and you want your makeup to really make a statement. Add shimmer to other places, too, but do not go overboard and go with one place at a time. If you are going for glittery eyes, skip the lips and décolletage. Likewise, if applying shimmer to your cheekbones, use a lighter eye shadow.
3. Use Nude Makeup
A nude make up look is halfway between a freshly cleansed and completely done up face. If you need a break from colours and you want to look like, well, yourself, nude is the look for you. The secret is in polished and nurtured skin that looks natural and healthy. How can you achieve it? Use organic cosmetics and makeup for a start. You can find amazing organic makeup in the 100 percent pure UK collection.
4. Highlight the Inner Corners of Your Eyes
Apply just a hint of shimmery eye shadow on the inner corners of your eyes to draw attention to them. Use a metallic shade, but make sure it matches your complexion. If you are fair, champagne is your colour, for the olives, gold is the right choice, and for dark complexions, bronze is the safest bet.
5. Get Glossy Berry Lips
Red lipstick is back, but this time with a dramatic turn. Stand out from the crowd by applying a bold dark, nearly black, lipstick. The shade should complement your complexion, but luckily dark shades are suitable for all complexions, and all occasions. If you decide on a more vampy, or goth look, go for a completely black shade, but if you are aiming at a more girly style, a lighter one is perfectly ok.
