The Colors Everyone Will Be Wearing This Winter
Posted on December 14 2018
Winter is near, so why not change up your look? Fortunately, the transition from fall to winter is almost seamless. Vampy makeup looks are still on trend for winter and deep, rich hair colors are all the rage. One trend that has taken off this season...glitter. Add a touch of shimmer to your holiday look and unleash your inner glitter goddess. Here are winter's hottest trends:
Make a seamless transition from fall to winter with a fresh hair color. During winter, we typically see colors that emulate the magic of the season. This winter, we’re seeing a muted and minimal aesthetic when it comes to hair. When transitioning your hair color, it’s important to keep in mind colors that will complement your skin tone. Ashy and cooler winter hair colors look the best against light and fair complexions. Warmer, golden-based tones look best against tan and olive complexions. Popular hair colors this winter include burgundy, amethyst silver, pastel pink, muted lavender, caramel hot chocolate, deep mocha, silver, cinnamon, and copper.
Cheeks: The Korean skincare trend known as “glass skin” is trending this winter. This trend features a glowing, iridescent complexion, ideal for the colder months. To achieve this look, first, you need to stay hydrated from the inside. Try aloe-infused water if you can find it. Fair skin is also trending.
Eyes: Winter is the season to go all out with lashes. Whether you get lash extensions or just use mascara, give your eyes a full and dramatic effect with heavy lashes. Glitter and pigmented hues are also trending this winter. The NYX Sugar Trip collection is full of bright colors and endless sparkle.
Lips: Vampy lip colors are extremely popular during winter. Pair a deep red, wine, or berry-colored look with your holiday outfit. Ombre lips are also in this winter. To achieve this technique, start with your favorite lip color. Next, choose a lip pencil (in a dark shade) and a shimmery light powder (can be an eye shadow). Apply your main lip color, line your lips, and blend inwards towards the center. Finish with a gloss or balm to lock in moisture.

Traditionally, we’re used to seeing bright colors in spring and summer, and darker colors in fall and winter. Well, now it’s time to change things up. One of the biggest nail trends this winter is white polish. If you wear a lot of blacks, reds, and other dark colors during the winter, switch up your look by keeping your fingers pale. Here are five white (or almost white) nail polishes you need this winter.
If white is too flat, try a pale powder-pink shade like Allure by Essie. The pink tint gives off just enough color and looks great against all skin tones.
This greyish-white shade sets the scene for winter, resembling a perfect combination of snow and cement.
If you want the whitest of whites, opt for ella+mila’s I Need A Tan.
