As summer melts into cooler months, turn up the heat with these winter makeup tips and trends straight from the runways of Milan and Paris. They can freshen up your seasonal look or even transform your entire appearance. Some are fun, others are dramatic, but all are key features of keeping your cold-weather beauty routine fashion-forward.
One of the upcoming season’s strongest makeup trends is eyeliner. Inspired by maximalist eyes of the 1960s, it will feature big—really big—this winter.
At Prada, bold, black eyeliner was used on both upper and lower lids and topped with a streak of bright blue. Versace models wore long, sweeping strokes of liner from the inner corners of their eyes to their temples. Chloé took cues directly from the 1960s.
LaLa Daisy has a great collection of eyeliners that includes liquid, gel and pencil liners so you can get just the right look for day and night. Pencils are great for a softer, groomed look during the day, while liquids help you achieve a more dramatic look for evening and special holiday events.
Two interesting looks for winter spotlight brows. While natural-looking, well-kept brows still feature prominently, designers have created a striking look with bleached or barely-there eyebrows. Models at Proenza Schouler sported almost-invisible brows and at Mary Katrantzou and Altuzarra, natural brows were softened with pastel eyeshadow.
Another understated makeup trend this winter will be groomed minimalism, shown to perfection on the runways by Lanvin, Isabel Marant and Max Mara. This look is not new, but this season is seeing a dedicated focus on glowing skin, curled eyelashes and impeccably groomed eyebrows. The overall effect is subtle yet timeless and sophisticated, perfect for every occasion.
LaLa Daisy has everything you need to get your brows in shape for the holiday season. Try a combined brow treatment and tinted gel, an easy-to-use brow pencil or an enhancing serum to help your own brows grow. A mineral brow kit is a great way to encourage healthy brow growth while creating a custom shade to match your coloring.
The Eyes Have It
After you have decided on your seasonal brow look, it is time to focus on your eyes. With bleached eyebrows, or carefully groomed natural brows, if you want to create the nuanced, minimalistic look, keep your eye makeup subtle. LaLa Daisy stocks season-ready colors and accessories.
Choose palettes of soft neutral shadows to add depth to eyelids. For a subtle yet elegant minimal look, add a few strokes of black mascara—not too heavy—and finish off by curling your lashes.
For any winter makeup trend, the foundation for a great effect is healthy, glowing skin. LaLa Daisy has a wide range of skin care to meet every need.
From formulas by Peter Thomas Roth, that incorporate gold to give you luminous skin, to popular IMAGE Skincare that combines nature with science, you can have great-looking and healthy skin for any look you choose. Add a touch of delicate cheek color for a perfectly polished finish.
Have trouble keeping your pout perfected? Does your lipstick usually go rogue? No problem this season. Runways this year featured smeared, smudged lips that had been carefully created backstage.
Designers with Preen by Thornton Bregazzi, Temperley London and Topshop Unique, were inspired by “just-kissed,” mussed-up lips. Check out LaLa Daisy’s range of lip color to find just the right tint for your pucker.
After a long, hot summer, it is time to re-examine your makeup and skin care routine for a new season. LaLa Daisy has just what you need to care for your skin and update or change your look for winter and the holidays.
