I cannot speak for all readers, but I have developed a tendency to avoid bothering with fun lipstick or blush when I know that they will soon be smudged away by scarves impetuously wrapped in hopes of survival through this bone-rattling weather. Fortunately, the Spring/Summer 2013 Gods smiled down on us when they provided a way to be in style while under wraps: the statement eye! Some popular practices of the statement eye include the strong brow, lush lashes, and bold liner.
These frosted days are the perfect opportunity to experiment with bold eyes, as opposed to the statement lip that many of us jumped to as tangerine, berry, and red hues were abundantly popular. They are the perfect inspiration for your look as this wave of low temperatures rolls over our coasts and sneaks up the sleeves of our winter coats. If you are entirely covered in warm layers like my friends and I in this weather, then prepare to pump up your stare! Feel free to wrap your scarf as many times as you need to in order to stay warm, because these looks won’t fade or smudge as you begin to bundle. Granted, I do suggest waterproof products to battle tearing eyes if you are extra sensitive to the wind!
With the eyes at the center of attention, don’t let the rest of your face face the winter blues! Remember to moisturize and exfoliate your skin and lips when the combination of the chilling temperatures, windy walks, and dry heating indoors are dulling your complexion. Remember that even when the clouds come out, there is still a strong need for SPF to keep skin healthy and glowing. Look for moisturizers and BB creams with at least SPF15 to get the job done! Highlight the eyes by sticking with naturals and neutrals for the rest of your makeup. Looking to dress it up a little more? Go for a dewy, luminous look like that of Balmain with a little illuminator, highlighting, and a touch of shimmer to your lips to bring this bold look to the next level.
Stay ahead of the curve by pulling out these eye-catching looks now along with Spring/Summer 2013‘s safely secured, scarfed, and set hair! Whether it’s pulled back for the sake of of fashion or the force of mother nature, weather these cold days with hair and makeup that is synchronously runway and real world approved.
Talk about CHIC options for saving face!
