As you do a major winter wardrobe haul, make sure to get on to some major winter makeup trends. We are loving the return of the classics – from smoky eyes to red lips and outdoorsy blush – reimagined with modern twists. For the beauty experimentalist, graphic shapes, neon flashes, and glitter sprinklings trended too.

So red

Velvety red lips were a firm feature on the autumn/winter catwalks. The bold beauty staple was generally paired with polished skin and minimal make-up, or with fierce wings of liner providing perfect balance to the graphic crimson lips.

Subtle blush

Fresh faced beauty is the order of the current season, thanks in part to an outdoorsy flush of blush. Add some colour to your cheeks and pair it with soft pink lips. Here is a pro tip – sweep the pink blush on your lids too because the trend for monotone make-up is here to stay.

Graphic eyes

Experimental eye makeup is a staple at fashion week, and this season the feel was retro-meets-futuristic. This season, anime-like Twiggy liner is the focus. Frame the eyes with black and white lines for a moodier, goth look.

Smoky neutrals

Time is now to put smoky eyes back on the fashion week map, with this dimensional smoked out eye makeup. Smoky neutrals on the eyes, cheeks and lips made for a soft monotone palette that oozed understated elegance.

Dewy lips

Lipgloss girls; rejoice. Whether thanks to gloss or balm, dewy lips in real skin shades are all over the ramp. Now high-shine needn't mean sticky, with modern make-up formulas that feel nourishing and lightweight replacing gloopy glosses.

Shots of neon

Flashes of colour brightened up the eyes at the numerous fashion weeks and we are all to take inspiration from it. For the former, classic liner was made youthful and cool, thanks to flaming pink flicks framing the upper lash lines.

Bronzed Goddess

It’s hard to resist a bronzed goddess, especially when everything else is looking pale and cold, which is why at the runways, bronzers really stood out to us, even though the rest of the makeup was kept understated. Dust some warm golden-brown bronzer low on the cheeks (lower than the ideal blush placement, but a little higher than contour) and on the sides of the forehead. In fact, give a wash of the same tone over the eyes!
