Last week I showed you my winter essentials for the body, what I use to keep my skin soft and smooth through the winter season. Today I will show you my favourite makeup for winter. Winter makeup for me is all about darker berry colours that go with the darker clothing that tends to come with winter. Berry and Plum colours, to me, are perfect for the cooler weather and provides some warmth to my face on a cold winter day. Keep reading to find out my favourite winter makeup items.

1. Neutral & Darker Lipsticks: In the cooler months my makeup tends to go in the darker direction and my lips definitely show this change. I love berries and neutral colours for the winter season and these two Maybelline Colorsensational Lipsticks provide this perfectly. I love Make Me Pink for its darker berry like colour and Born With It for its neutral pink. The consistency of these lipsticks is also great, creamy and lasts quite a while. I often swipe them over some lip balm for more moisture and to tone down the brighter colour.

2. Berry Lips: Like the above lipsticks I am loving this darker lip lacquer from the new Rimmel Apocalips line. It is the perfect shade for a more night time look and the darkness of the shade is perfect for a winter look. I love the consistency of these lip lacquers, they are very opaque and not sticky on the lips.

3. Darker Nails: Are we sensing a trend here? For winter I like to go with more darker colours for most things from makeup, to clothes to nails. This OPI nail polish in Lincoln Park After Dark is a cult favourite in the beauty world. It is a VERY dark purple. It is perfect for the winter season to go with every outfit and is easy to apply.

4. Berry Cheeks: This blush by Rimmel in Genuine Plum is a gorgeous berry colour. It applies beautifully and warms up the face on a cold winter day. It has great lasting power and the colour is gorgeous.

I hope you are having a fabulous day,
