Attention all. Winter is coming. Insert opening credits. Tan tan tada, tan tan tada
Okay for those who GOT that reference, high five. That said, this winter we’re veering far far away from the classics by giving blue lids and the much-imitated crimson lip a cold shoulder. We’re talking frosted pouts, salmon cheeks (and yes, we obviously threw in a Khaleesi inspired look for you. You’re welcome).
This season’s woman is unapologetic, fierce and not afraid to take it from subtle to statement. It’s time to take the path less traversed. It’s safe to say that vivid makeup needn't look clownish or scary as long as you play by the rules. That’s why you’ve got us. So, gear up as we approach the end of winter 2018 with for some of the most emulated trends that’s going to send major chills down everybody’s spine.

Okay, so this is not your regular blush situation. Inspired by that crisp flush you get when there’s a nip in the air, chilly cheeks aka broad blush is basically naturally blushed skin with a twist. For those that just don’t seem to achieve that flush naturally, all you need to do is fake it (now, we’re familiar with that concept, so piece of cake). Except this time, we want you to push the envelope and get a salmon pink blush traded across your cheekbones and all the way to your temples. So basically you blushing, only this time freshly baked strawberry macaroon.
Why so blue you ask? Let us explain. It’s true that blue lipstick can look cheap and garish when not done right. See, that’s where we step in tell you exactly what you should invest in. Start by layering your lips with a navy-blue lip liner, dab some metallic-blue eyeshadow or lipstick over that and seal with a clear balm. The sheen from the balm keeps it from looking too flat and matte against the mouth. Draw out a crisp gold streak right below your waterline to complete the look and keep the rest of your canvas clean.
We’re going to start by saying that you don’t really need platinum blonde locks to pull off this stunning Khaleesi-inspired look. We swear by the old gods and the new you will not be disappointed. Start by highlighting your brows, sweeping on some earthy silver shadow and a liquid based berry blush. Don’t forget that one of the most significant part of her look are those delicious glassy flushed lips. Lock this majestic trend by styling your hair with two low twisties to give it that extra accuracy. Warning. Don’t be startled if you spot two gorgeous dragons just hanging outside your window.
Stop everything you’re doing, because we’ve got just what you need to brandish the prettiest frosty lips EVER. This winter get your hands on a creamy, gold-flecked formula to rock an icy pout. Something less chalky and a heck of a lot cooler. If you’re uncertain always remember that the secret to trying something new is by upgrading with a color you already know and love. If you ask us, go for a bronzy pink shade with a kiss of metallic. All works. Stunning on literally all skin tones, this swanky trend is begging to be instagrammed.
LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
When it’s a little cold outside we usually reach out for our hot chocolate or your favorite blankie (with faded spongebob prints on it, perhaps?). But this breezy month, we’re going to let you get all warmed up with a little sunshine
for your eyes. Sunset eyes, because orange has never looked this good. We’re talking a wash of a cozy orange with a golden undertone all the way up to your brows. Seal this look with tousled waves and a cinnamon tinted lip balm. Nothing more, nothing less. After all, a little sunshine on a chilly day never hurts. Right?
