With Winter quickly approaching, it’s time to start trying out new holiday makeup looks! We have curated 5 of our favorite holiday makeup looks for you to recreate ASAP this Winter so you can be cute and on point all season long.
The Bolder the Better
Bold, bright blush has been all the rage lately in the beauty community and we are still not over it! We are taking colorful rosy cheeks into the Winter for a wind-kissed look. To recreate this, you can use either a powder or a cream depending on your skin type. For powder blush, we love our Skin Perfecting Powder Blush Act in Berry Beautiful or Pretty in Peach for a natural flush of color to the cheeks. To take it up a notch, reach for one of our Silky Pout Creamy Lip Chubby in one of the four available shades for a more pigmented flush of color on the cheeks.
A Monochromatic Moment
Another trend that we have been loving for this Winter is monochromatic makeup for the eyes and cheeks. This trend consists of using one color, particularly a shimmer, and applying the color all over the cheekbones, brow bone, and eyelid. We love using our soft illuminating Skin Perfecting Powder Afterglow Illuminating Powder for this trend as it is neutral enough to wear for day-to-day makeup looks but still a super fun take on the trend! With this Afterglow powder, take a fluffy blending brush and sweep the color over the cheeks before taking a small eyeshadow brush to apply the same highlight all over the eyelid up to the brow bone.
*PUR Pro Tip: We also love applying this shimmer to the inner corner of the eye for an extra pop of highlight!
Keep On Glowing!
A trend we have seen season after season has been glowy, dewy skin—and it is here to stay! During the cooler Winter months, skin tends to get dry and flaky due to the harsh weather. Because of this, we like to lean for a heavier moisturizer and more hydrating skincare routine. One way to up your hydrating skincare routine and add to the glowing skin trend is our Go with the Glow Niacinamide Drops. This multitasking serum helps you achieve a more radiant-looking glow thanks to ingredients such as Niacinamide, Vitamin C, and Squalane.
We have been seeing a lot of graphic eyeliner looks on celebrities and on runways, and it looks like this trend is here to stay for Winter. A graphic liner consists of a sharp, precise liner on the eyelid in places other than the lash line. We recommend using On Point Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner Pen to achieve this look as the soft felt-tip applicator will make it easier to apply and control the liner. This eyeliner formula is also waterproof which means it will help to resist smudging and fading for all day wear so your *super cool* graphic liner look will last all day and night.
Classic Holiday Glam
We couldn’t list Winter trends without mentioning the classic holiday makeup look of a shimmery, sparkly eye with a bright red lip. This look is timeless as the look is simple enough to put together but glamorous enough for every holiday party. For the eyes, our 3-Piece Eye Polish Kit in shade Gilded Copper is the perfect shimmer to apply on the lid as it is a one-step eye look for easier application. Plus, as a bonus, the three-piece kit also includes best selling Fully Charged Mascara to complete the eye makeup look. For the lips, our 4-in-1 Duo Dual-Ended Matte Lipstick + Lip Oil in shade Single 4 Tonight is the perfect pop of red for the holidays, plus it has a transfer-resistant formula for a saturated lip stain that is comfortable and stain-resistant.To learn more about makeup trends and our best selling beauty and skincare, head to purcosmetics.com
