Before the first snowflakes fall, the fields and forests are definitely worth visiting. Deep dark green and deep brown hues can still be captured on some trees and form the perfect inspiration for this year’s cool season makeup trend. Eyeshadow in red, matte brown on the cheeks and burgundy for the lips. Discover with us the seductive look of winter.
When it’s cold outside, your face can get a bit warm when it comes to makeup too. Because red and brown set the trend this season.
In the corridor
The big fashion houses from Gucci to Altuzarra already showed it on the runway and ensured a significant look with their prediction of dark red trend on the lips and eyes. Givenchy was at the forefront of this league. The models walked the runway with strongly emphasized eyes and lips and presented the fall / winter 2013/2014 trend not only in fashion. Even the eyebrows, warm golden tones and reddish bronze were applied to their lids. Strongly accentuated brows and a matte burgundy lipstick complete this look, which is not entirely suitable for everyday wear, however.
In all the days of life
Anyone who has ever done bright red lips in broad daylight knows the answer to this distinctive style. It is similar with dark burgundy colors on the eyes or lips. So don’t do it Givenchy style right away, first decide which part you want to emphasize. This is followed by the agony of choosing a color, which is not easy for everyone. Depending on the undertone of your skin, opinions differ here, because your pale colleague’s rich lipstick doesn’t have to flatter your olive complexion too. Try different shades of color to highlight your lips and complexion. Keep the different shades directly in front of your face and decide not only based on the color of the back of the hand whether this shade suits you. Remember that lipstick is always a shade darker on your lips than on your skin.
The art of transformation
Makeup has an incredible effect. Using special techniques, full faces can be shaped, eyes enlarged and lips made up. Therefore, special care is required when handling red and bronze eyeshadows. If used incorrectly, your eyes can quickly appear sickly and tired. Therefore, it is better to avoid deep burgundy on the lower lash line and emphasize this area with a bright gold that perfectly complements this trend. Women with narrow lips should also keep their hands away from dark red lipstick and definitely work with a second lighter color on the inner lip area. This way it is optically elevated and doesn’t look as narrow despite the dark look of the trend.
