7 Trendy Eye Makeup Tips For Winter

Beauty chooses no season. Thus, even in the cold, snowy freezing winter, let your inner goddess fires up the entire place with your hot fiery eyes matched your innocent alluring look, all with a touch of some eye shadow, mascara and eyeliner.

Winter season is one of moments perfect for holiday retreats, parties and gatherings with your colleagues, friends and families. Different people from different places gather to meet because of the coming of holiday vacations. So don’t let the chilly atmosphere and critical crowds worry you from making you the best, go out, wear some makeup and let everyone gaze at you – bragging your looks, making your beauty stand out and run the winter with your irresistible beauty.


Though eyes and shapes of faces differ from one person to another, these are the top trendy eye makeup tips for winter 2012 to 2013 that will truly bring you to stardom.

1. For women who have small eyes, their secret solution is eyeliner. It can really be a godsend lifesaver for people who want to have some depth on their eyes. Just apply a little amount of eyeliner on the top lid to give you an oozing expressive look. Also, in case you’re fond of using liquid eye liner, just put little lines in the inner and outer corner of the eye then connect it in the middle. Pencil eyeliner however, should always be put in the bottom lead as it is much better to use. A perfect night out with your friends with a cat’s eye beauty makes you look sexy and attractive.

2. Though smoky eyes never come out of trend, this time, make it look more stylish and innovative. Redefined it in a much unique and creative way by using bi-colors. Use the darker shades of brown, taupe and golden, to ensure that the eyes portray a much darker revealing tone. Don’t forget also to pair it with gray and blue, black and gray or golden and brown to unveil its dazzling effects making it more dramatic to see. With these stunning eyes, you can just wear nude makeup and lipstick to complete the whole thing.

3. If you love experimenting colors, then this is the best trendy make up for you this winter. All you have to do is to choose these playful yet sweet eye shadows of pink, beige and brown. A shade of chocolate and purple is perfect too. But if you want to have that powerful and luminous look, then choose the shades of silver and golden. Put a touch of pinkish blush and complete your makeup with orange lips.

4. If simple yet mesmerizing look is what you desire this winter, then play with lighter eye shadows on the top of your entire eyelid. You can also extend it up to your brows. Wearing a mascara or eyeliner is not really an option if you want it to be as plain as possible, just wear a light red lipstick and pink blush so you can get the simplest yet trendy style you want.

5. Daring and tantalizing eyes are the trends and hottest this winter season so if you have a skin of porcelain, think no more and choose the dazzling orange color for your eyes to emphasize its luminous and sophisticated detail. This makeup is best for special occasions and important gatherings.

6. Since winter needs warm looks, purple eye shadows bring fire to your eyes. Drawing your inspiration from the look of retro makeup, the color makes you stand out. Just make sure to use it with moderation and put fine lines at the roots of your eyelashes to emphasize details.

7. If you want to have that rebellious yet sexy look this winter, then it all depends on how you do your brows. Just keep your brows natural in terms of shape and color. Then buy a creamy texture eyebrow pencil and apply it carefully to reveal its natural glow. Using a special gel, style your brow upwards to complete the look you desire.

Our eyes play a very important role on our face. It is a portal of beauty which reveals our goddess within. With a simple touch of fashion and latest and hottest trend in makeup, one single touch of color makes a significant difference in your chilly winter season.

Urban Decay Is Better Than Ever

I have loved Urban Decay eye shadows ever since trying them for the first time a few years ago. The combination of punchy color intensity, product wear and price point is difficult to beat. Yet somehow, Urban Decay has outdone their own star product by releasing their new eye shadow formula.

Urban Decay Eye Shadows

The improved eye shadow has a creamier texture and retains that intense color payoff we love, with plenty of added benefits. It is easy to apply smoothly without getting powdery and with less glitter fallout, one of the most common complaints about the original product. It wears better than the original without eye primer and stays put without smudging or creasing. Urban Decay’s original eye shadow was already their best-selling product, but they made it better anyway.

The added ingredient of capric/caprylic triglyceride, or fractionated coconut oil, improves application, wear and color intensity, but it is also an excellent skin conditioner. This magic odorless shelf-stable oil has an indefinite shelf life and is used in many creams and skin products as a skin emollient. While Urban Decay has not been marketing this product as an eye shadow with skincare benefits, the ingredient is ideal for maintaining and improving the delicate skin of the eye area.

Some of the sheerer colors have greatly improved pigmentation in the new collection, including Asphyxia, my personal favorite. Some other great colors to try are Peace, X, Psychedelic Sister and Free Love. The new collection features a few fan favorites that have never been released as singles, such as Mushroom, AC/DC and YDK. The only downside is that some colors have been discontinued, including Lounge, Jones, El Dorado and Hot Pants. Urban Decay provided a chart to offer replacements for these and other shades, but it is just not the same.

The new formula is also available in Urban Decay’s latest palette releases, which is usually the best value. These include Naked 2, the Vice Palette, the 15th Anniversary Palette and the re-released Feminine, Dangerous and Fun palettes.

Urban Decay is a cruelty-free company that appears on PETA’s list and the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics’ Leaping Bunny list. The company meets the most stringent requirements for avoiding animal testing on their products and source ingredients that were tested on animals. Urban Decay is a favorite among animal lovers, activists, vegans and vegetarians.

My Bobbi Brown Wishlist

When it comes to iconic cosmetic companies Bobbi Brown stands out. With a focus on natural and feminine shades, I already own a number of Bobbi Brown products and, at any given time, I have more on my radar. Here is a wish list of items that I am currently coveting.  These items are from Harrods which, if you are looking for Bobbi Brown UK items, is a great place to shop.

(1)  Caviar and Oyster Palette

I can’t tell you how many times I have almost ordered this. With four matte shadow shades and four shimmer shades, it is perfect for creating smoky eye looks or sparkling highlight looks for an evening out on the town or for parties. It comes paired with a shimmering highlighter for your cheeks to create a sparkling glow. The entire compact will also fit nicely in your purse. The shades are all universally flattering and versatile.

(2) Bobbi Brown BB Cream

I love BB creams, and Bobbi Brown reportedly has one of the best outside of the Asian companies. I been wanting to try it for some time and simply have not gotten around to it yet. If you have good skin, you can wear a BB cream alone. I like to use BB creams as a primer and put a tinted powder over it since I have some hyperpigmentation to hide. A good BB cream will act as a multi-tasker by providing coverage, skin care, and SPF protection all in one. The Bobbi Brown version offers SPF 35 protection.

(3) Uber Nude Lip and Eye Palette

This lip and eye palette is perfect for the neutral and nude shadow lover. That certainly includes me! It includes two lip shades, a shimmer gloss, and three matte shadows. It is great for everyday looks, while the shimmer lip items allow it to be dressed up a bit as well.

(4) Full Coverage Brush

I would love to try the Bobbi Brown full coverage brush and see how it compares to other similar brushes such as Urban Decay’s good karma optical blending brush. This type of brush has become popular for creating perfect foundation looks by stippling on the makeup and then buffing it. I have had great results with the UD brush and suspect that Bobbi Brown would make an even better one. Hopefully I will try it out at some point!
