Explore the unexpected this winter with twists of colour and unique textures to brighten up grey days.
DARK AND STORMY
Keep things cool with rich plum tones and loads of lashes. Nude lips, raw skin and a high shine cheek will keep things balanced.

Whether peach, pink, brown or beige in base, a nude lip is a signature – unique to you and essential to any makeup wardrobe. Add a slick of kohl and a fluffy brow to give structure and a sultry edge.

JUST ADD COLOUR
A graphic wing is a modern classic, this winter, serve it with a twist against a zinging, block-shadowed lid. Keep the rest of the skin paired back and contrast matte textures with a translucent, wet-look shine on the cheeks.

Discover your inner impressionist and combine watercolour pastels with creamy highlights and translucent washes of colour for a dreamy, ethereal winter look.

LADY IN RED
A bright red lip will take you anywhere, so let your client’s pout take centre stage. Simply colour correct lids with concealer, set with powder and skip mascara to keep the attention where you want it to be.

Universally flattering, a soft and dreamy pink adds a translucent flush to cheeks and (well hydrated) lips. There are as many shades of pink as clouds in the sky – choose from soft corals and pastels to flatter fairer skin or lush raspberries and cranberries for deeper complexions.
