05 Jul Winter Make-up at its Best!
I love these images, and although this winter chill is pretty hard to take after a month in the tropics these pics made me smile! Vogue Australia has captured these two Aussie beauties at their best. This is a prime example of whats hot in make-up for winter. Once again as the weather has cooled so has the use of eyeliner, this season icy brown eye shadow should be used to define your eyes instead liner. Both these ladies have minimal eye liner on and you can see the effect it has on their eyes… It makes the colour pop!
Tips for the Perfect winter face-
Use an illuminator to make your complexion glow.
Hold off on the eyeliner, use varying shades of brown to define the eyes. Use one shade on the upper lid and a darker shade to define the lower lash line and the crease of the top lid.
Place a dab of Illuminate in the inner corner of the eye to open and freshen up the eyes.
Find a creamy frosted lip colour in nude or light brown for a full shimmering lip.
