Winter-Inspired Makeup Tutorial

Now is the best time to make the most of the winter weather and create and fun look using some frosted shades. Any baked eyeshadow palette works for this look, and don’t forget to mix with a splash of water to create a shade that says on and doesn’t budge!

1. Moisturise your skin with a light formula which comes with an added SPF. After the moisturiser has settled into your skin (this could take just a few minutes), it’s time to apply the foundation. Use a flat foundation brush to evenly distribute the product across your face.

2. Set any problem areas with a translucent powder – forehead, chin, and cheeks. Lightly dusk across the t-zone or any other place where your skin becomes oily.

3. If your eyes are feeling puffy from a lack of sleep, apply some concealer and blend with your fingers. This creates a natural finish which won’t emphasise your pores.

4. Prime your eyes with a creamy primer, since this will allow the makeup to stay on for longer. Use either with a flat concealer brush, or for even better coverage, pat with your ring finger until it settles into the skin.

5. Take a flat shading eyeshadow brush apply a neutral colour over your entire lid. To make the product last for longer, buff the product well into the lid.

6. Use a slightly darker shade, and apply this onto the hollows of your eyes. This colour should slightly create a contour on your eyes.
