Winter Makeup Trends 2022: The Modern Update

Winter makeup isn’t what it used to be.

In fact, our makeup kits of late are a far cry from the powder-filled routines of our past, colored with vampy shades of brown Lipstick and matte-finish Foundations.

As the weather cools down, we’re reaching for hydrating complexion-perfectors that err on the side of skin care. Cream formulas for everything from eyeshadow to blush is a given. And we’re rarely seen with a lip option heavier than an opaque gloss.

So rustle up a pen and paper and prepare to take notes, school’s in session, and we’re learning all about the new way to wear makeup in winter.

Switch: Powder for cream formulas

As far as we’re concerned, using powder makeup formulas at a time of year when our skin is at its driest is just plain dumb. Instead we’re trying to emulate the soft glow we’re usually seen Sporting in summer with a slew of dewy-finish cream formula products.

We’re talking blush that melts into the skin for a seamlessly blended flush, highlighter that leaves you with that highly-coveted glass skin finish, and cream eyeshadows that add a natural dose of color to the Lids, and diffuse easily with the light touch of a finger.

We recommend:

The Charlotte Tilbury Quick & Easy Makeup Kit in ‘Sun-kissed’ ($ 99 at Charlotte Tilbury) is one of those makeup concepts that sounds too good to be true. Yet here we are in a day and age where a 5-minute makeup kit can fit easily into even the slimmest of Purses.

Equipped with a Bronze eyeshadow stick, a creamy blush stick, and a translucent-finish highlighter stick, this kit is our best Buddy for days when we opted to hit the snooze button on our alarm in exchange for 10 more minutes in bed.
