8 Amazing Makeup Must-Haves for Winter You Simply Need to Try ...

Winter Makeup is by turns vibrant and subtle. One thing's for sure, it's definitely different from the cosmetics and looks that were popular in summer and fall. This season, most winter makeup encourages a natural look, but you still need certain items to achieve it. On the other side of the coin, there are a lot of bright, vivid trends. Stick with me, I'll show you exactly what kind of winter makeup you should be looking for in your stocking this year.

Too Face Full Bloom Lip & Cheek Color

Too Face Full Bloom Lip & Cheek Color Price: $21.00 at sephora.com
This winter makeup item kills two birds with one stone, which is always great. Orange, coral, and similar shades are extremely popular this season, and they look great on lips and cheeks. Since you can use this product on both, you can save some money by investing in a lip stain and blush without having to pay for two separate products!


Make up for Ever Rouge Artist Intense

Red lips are incredibly popular this winter as well. Actually, just look for a dark but dramatic lip color, whether it's red, raspberry, or burgundy. When you're going for red shades, though, here are a few tips. For one thing, if you wear them during the day, keep everything else simple; generally, dramatic colors are best for evening, though. If you have fair skin, look for red shades with an orange base. If you have gold, yellow, or darker toned skin, look for blue or pink undertones.


Dior DiorShow Mascara

Dior DiorShow Mascara Price: $24.50 at sephora.com
Another winter makeup staple is a good mascara, because long, lush eyelashes are a must. I love DiorShow Mascara, because it doesn't tend to clump or make my lashes stick together. Your mileage may vary, but this one is definitely my pick for gorgeous but natural looking lashes! If you want a more natural look, go for shades of brown instead of black.


Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner

Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner Price: $20.00 at sephora.com
This winter, you need a good eyeliner as well, but not just any eyeliner. While thick, retro lines are in, something else is heading the pack. Purposely smudged looks are gorgeous this winter, in part because then you don't have to worry about smudging your eyeliner yourself when cold winds make your eyes water.


Anastasia Long Wearing Brow Pen

Anastasia Long Wearing Brow Pen Price: $21.00 at sephora.com
Thick, dark eyebrows are in this season too, so your winter makeup kit has to have a good brow pencil. I recommend this one because it lasts a long time, and because you can easily match your coloring. I also recommend checking out eyebrow tutorials, especially if you want to try this look but aren't used to penciling in your brows to make them look thicker.


Anastasia Brow Gel

Anastasia Brow Gel Price: $21.00 at sephora.com
If you're going to pencil in your brows, even partly, then you definitely need a good gel. Gels are great for shaping and holding on your color, so even if you don't want to buy the aforementioned pencil, if you invest in a good gel, then all of your eyebrow pencils will last a long time. Seriously, this product changed the way I look at my eyebrows!


Makeup for Ever Pure Pigments

Makeup for Ever Pure Pigments Price: $19.00 at sephora.com
Another winter makeup staple is bright eye shadow. Specifically, shades of orange and yellow are totally on trend. Now, you have to go easy with the rest of your makeup when you try this trend. Done the right way, however, it's bold, daring, and absolutely stunning!


Urban Decay Naked Palette

Urban Decay Naked Palette Price: $48.00 at sephora.com
Last but not least, there's the natural trend. I know this is pricey, but you get a ton of colors, plus primer and a fantastic brush. This tray has everything you need for any foray into the neutral look, along with some blue and green for highlighting. On those days when you just want a little brown, beige, or cream on your eyes, a naked lip, and nude cheeks, this is all you need.

I've used a lot of these winter makeup products myself, especially the eyebrow cosmetics – I have a serious obsession with my eyebrows, y'all. I also love the fact that natural, neutral colors are in, because they're easy to use when you just don't have the time or the inclination to go with brighter winter makeup choices. Remember the tips for wearing a red lip and don't forget to emphasize all your best features! What are some of your favorite winter makeup trends?
