Winter is the ideal season to experiment with darker, bolder shades of eye makeup, but the cold dry winter also brings with it quite a few challenges, be it dried skin or winter winds that leave your eyes looking smudgy and makeup running down your face. Well we can’t let that happen now, can we? To help you go all out and experiment with new hues this winter, we at Salosa are here to share a few power packed tips that make sure you don’t have a worry in the world, with your eye makeup at least!
Wearing make up is as much of an art as painting a canvas, so the first thing you need to do is make sure your face is prepped and ready to take on the cold. Start with a gentle face scrub, to remove dry skin, after which use a gentle toner or water soluble cleanser, this works to restore the pH balance of your skin. Don’t forget to apply a layer of deep moisturizer, then use a liquid foundation to reduce blemishes .Once you’ve prepped the canvas it’s time to start painting those eyes.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul, the last thing you want this winter is smudgy, runny eye makeup. Waterproof makeup is the key, cold winds can reign havoc on eye makeup if you don’t use the right products. It’s time to switch to waterproof mascara and eyeliner. A good trick to conceal any smudges is to use eye shadow on the upper lids, so even if the winds get the better of you, you eye shadow does a good job reducing the obvious damage.
If you are down with the sniffles, it’s a good idea to keep your eye makeup to the minimal. If you’ve got a clean bill of health, winter is the best time to use bolder shades, go dark with deep blues, greys or black kohl to highlight your eyes, you can even experiment with deeper shades of eyes shadow to help make you eyes pop. Another look you can experiment with is using more metallics, try silvers or metallic shades of grey and blue.
We all tend to forget just how important a good brow shape is, when it comes accentuating the features of our face. Make sure you don’t compromise on your brows by pulling out the tweezers and trying to shape them yourself. Leave the eye brow plucking and shaping to the experts.
