Jewel Tone Eye

This winter will be every makeup enthusiast favorite season to live your makeup fantasies out loud and what makeup lover doesn’t fantasize about jewel tones, vibrant blues, pretty pinks and gilded golds. Jewel tone shimmers are 2021’s number one focus, it’s all about our eyes! If you have been eyeing blue shadows now is your moment to dive into the blue abyss! To achieve this look we used Glamazon Beauty Cosmetics Eye shadow Palette in the color “Yemaya” this palette has so many amazing jewel tones in it but two of my personal favorites are Yemaya, Saroya and Solstice are trending everywhere this winter!

Colorful Smokey Eyes

This winter there is a new trend in town and it’s smoking hot! It’s a smokey eye! There is nothing new about a smokey eye, you say? Well your wrong!  This smokey eye involves applying a pop of bold color to your once brown or black smokey eye and it is a game changer. Try emerald green, bright purple or bold gold. This trend is not for the shy beauties because you’ll get noticed wherever you go!

No Makeup Makeup 

This winter feel free to live your best life being a minimalist showcasing your natural beauty and if you love the look of barely there makeup this is for you. This winter cream highlighters, lip gloss and matte eye shadow will be your go-to products. Instead of opting for the usual shimmering eye this winter, grab your hydrating primer and hydrating foundation and create your own healthy glow! Yes even in the dead of winter you can glow up… and don’t be shy to go all in when using your eyeliner!

For primer and moisturizer try Mystical Veil Face primer 2-N-1 you can moisturize and prime at the same time! $27  for a foundation that truly looks like skin try Glamazon Second Skin Foundation, this foundation is a go-to amongst celebrities who really want to have the look of glowing dewy skin without the heavy feel. For an amazing eye shadow palette with matte and gorgeous shimmers try Glamazon Beauty Nubian Queen Palette $36.

Nothing like Terracotta

The Terracotta makeup trend took over fall and I am happy to say that this trend will still be here for winter. This look dominated the runways during NYC and Paris fashion week and we just can’t get enough of it! It was used at Chanel in Paris, Alberta Ferratti with alluring eyeshadows, and Brandon Maxwell’s show who dove in on the look with terracotta blush. Tommy Hilfiger, who did exactly what I would do, used terracotta all over eyes, cheeks and lips. Its the new nude we cant live without. Lets face it this look dominated the runways globally and now this trend should  dominate your makeup bag!

Product suggestions to achieve this look can range from coral to deep bronze and terracotta, mix these shades up to create dimension.
