We know makeup can't keep you warm. But toasty makeup hues are a pretty good cold weather antidote to heat things up. Picture this: artfully tousled hair, cheeks a flush and just-bitten lips. That's just what you need to get temperatures soaring. Almost as good as a steaming cup of hot chocolate. As a wise woman once said, dark lipstick is all you need to feel sunny on a winter day.
Red Retro Glam Anyone?
Red lipstick=Super Sexy. Swipe some on right now! What do some of the sexist women from Marilyn Monroe and Dita Von Teese to Gwen Stefani and Taylor Swift have in common? A red-hot pout. It'll transform your face with a wash of warmth. L'Oreal Paris Pure Reds Color Riche Collection Star Lipsticks- Pure Garnet is an elegant deep wine with undertones of brown and red, while Maybelline Color Sensational Lip Color-Fatal Red is a pure red with orange undertones. For cheeks nothing beats Ciaté London Blush Pop Cremé Blush – Darling. Tone it down by blending with a dot of foundation for a lighter flush. Finally, get your glam game on point with scarlet pinkies courtesy Nykaa Paint Me Red Nail Combo.
Wine Isn't Just For Drinking
Let's talk about the most decadent makeup combo ever—wine and chocolate. So what if Marsala was last year's Pantone favorite? A wine lippie (like Nykaa So Matte Lipstick - Wicked Wine 07 M or NYX Professional Makeup Butter Lipstick - Moonlit Night) will get you party-ready in a trice. Just keep the rest of your look low key; neutral eyes with a brown-gold shimmer and winged eyeliner. Wine is also the perfect glamorous nail polish shade (we adore Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - Wine Not) for this time of year. For a fun look go wine on the tips over a bottom shade of beige. Ooh la la!
Let's Go Orange!
A big trend on the catwalk that looks stunning on Indian skin tones—finally—is makeup in every shade of orange. From apricot and coral to mandarin and bronze with a hunt of shimmer. Wear Colorbar Pro Eye Shadow Quad - Splendid Touch blended around the eye area or washed over the lid, or dust some Faces Glam On Perfect Blush - Apricot 06 to bring a lovely autumnal flush to your cheeks. Finally, it's hard to not look invincible while sporting an orange pout thanks to Chambor Orosa Lip Perfection Lipstick – 523 Flamongo Orange, and flaming nails in Faces Hi Shine Nail Enamel - Orange Glitz.
