Let’s face it, you probably haven’t been wearing much make-up this year. In the craziness of 2020 and the UK lockdowns, it’s been a year of embracing comfy clothes for working from home, wrapping up for our daily walks, and hiding our faces behind another fabric facemask. But fear not, make-up—the season of sparkle is finally upon us!
And after this year, we couldn’t be more ready for the festive season’s appreciation of all things glamorous. While our Christmas parties might be socially-distanced or done via video call, we’ll still be getting in the swing of this year’s make-up trends (even if we’re on Zoom and wearing our pyjama bottoms underneath our glittery top).
Here are a couple of our favourite winter make-up looks to help keep our spirits up even if we’re locked down:
1. Ultimate cat eye
"Cat eyes are an easy and sexy way to play up your eyes and feel done up," says Daniel Chinchilla, the celebrity make-up artist behind some of Ariana Grande’s most iconic red carpet cat eyes. "What I love is that you can go as natural or dramatic as you want."
2. Get that glow
"Winter usually leans a little more matte when it comes to skin and makeup, but changing it up and giving the skin a glow is going to be huge this season," says Sarah Tanno, celebrity makeup artist to the likes of Lady Gaga.
To get the look, she recommends "sweeping blush and bronzer above the cheekbones from the temple to the nose and draping a highlighter across the top to find your best light."
3. Fluffy brows
Once upon a time it was all about the over-tweezed brows, but fluffy natural brows are now on-trend.
"I like this trend because by brushing the brows up and making the hairs straight," says celebrity makeup artist, Patrick Ta. "It changes the face shape and creates a more angled look and lifts the face."
