Most people are not well-versed when it comes to wearing the right eye makeup. While neutral and light tones provide for a perfect summer look, chillier months call for darker and deep hues. These include shades of green, maroon, purple and red among others. While they may come across as OTT to those who are not fans of heavy makeup, a beautiful smokey eye is a must on cold nights out. They not only uplift one’s look but also go hand-in-hand with winter-wardrobe staples including trench coats, oversized blazers, leather pants and knee-high boots. As we approach the best time of the year, here is how you can be a sure-fire stand-out at your next outing!
- The Nude Eye
Hands down, this is for those of you who prefer to go for a fuller yet natural look. If you don’t want it to look to dramatic, opt for your favourite shade of nude, while blending it with a tint of dark brown. Finish it off with some gold glitter, winged eyeliner and light mascara.
- The Purple Eye
Purple is undeniably an overpowering colour if used as an eye shadow but the correct shade will never betray you. In order to be content with your look, make sure to use purple eye shadow as the base colour, while smudging your liner like charcoal and adding a pop of black eye colour at the ends. This will give you the perfect mix of black and purple. Remember to leave the remainder of your face natural and let the eyes do the talking!
- The Green Eye
A winter colour indeed, it will add drama and flair to your overall look! However, we recommend going for the dark green eye during nighttime. Silver and green complement each other more than perfectly and so, a tad bit of silver glitter will definitely be the best finishing touch to your look. Trust us, your friends will be green with envy at first sight!
