Doing graphic eyeliner with colored eyeliner is also a great choice. The bright pop of color and the edgy patterns would be perfect for the parties and night outs.

  1. Dark lipstick

Winter is synonymous with dark lipstick. Vampy purple, classic oxblood, bold grey, or gothic black, there are so many options to choose from. Dark lipstick looks super chic. This is the perfect season to play with darker hues and make a bold style statement.

If you’ve not worn a dark lipstick and want to experiment, we suggest you buy an affordable lipstick first and get used to the idea. Once you feel comfortable, go on and splurge.

  1. Smokey Eye Look 

The quintessential style of a smokey eye is unmatched. Play around with colors to create a purple or blue smokey eye. It complements all skin tones and would amp up your party look.

Wear a nude pink lipstick to highlight the eye make-up. We recommend that you make use of the sale season and buy a good eye shadow palette. It’ll make life easier.

And the good thing is that you can use a highlighter in multiple ways (use it as an eye shadow; as a top coat to make your very own metallic lipstick; as a body luminizer).
