We all know that this year has been a year like no other. Most people are at home more often and many are not wearing a lot of makeup. When people are home, they tend to wear more comfortable clothing, spend less time on their hair and when they do venture out, they may not be thinking about wearing makeup since half of their face will need to be covered with a face mask.
However, the holiday season is upon us and this is a great time to break out of your habits and spend a little more time on yourself. You can rediscover your joy of makeup this winter by using these makeup tips from celebrity makeup artists.
Even though life looks different right now and our full face might not always be visible, our eyes are always a feature that you can apply makeup to. A cat eye is a big trend right now since it brings the drama. You can go for a more subtle cat eye or you can be more dramatic. You can also enhance the look by adding shimmer or glitter and you can also play around with color.
Going along with your eyes, your eyebrows are another area that you can get creative with. Fluffy, natural-looking eyebrows are trending right now. You can get this look by using shaping wax or gel and brushing your eyebrows in an upward motion. If you have some areas that look a little bare, you can use a brow pen to fill it in.
Incorporating more color into your eyes is another big trend right now and you can add drama to either your eyes or your lips, or both! You can experiment and play around with color and decide if you prefer a more monochromatic look, or you can choose either your eyes or your lips to take on bolder color.
Lived-in liner is another popular trend right now and is currently a makeup style being used by Lady Gaga. The lived-in liner look is a smudged, smokey look that you can get by using a soft eyeliner pencil. You can use a gel pencil or a gel crayon eyeliner and once you line your eyes with it, you can take a smudging brush to get the final shape you are looking for.
Although the holidays may look different this year, that does not mean that you have to give up the glam. There are creative ways you can celebrate with your loved ones and still express your individuality with your makeup.
