What makeup to choose depending on the season

  

what makeup

Although colours and styles can vary from one person to the other, there are certain guidelines that are recommended to follow in terms of makeup to make the most of the current season. While you might have already picked the colours and makeup stye in general that best suits, it is advisable to change and try new colours as time passes; remember that your skin will not always be the same and some makeup is more appropriate to certain age groups. Therefore, it is important to update foundation, concealer and colour palette throughout the years.

Winter
If you live in the Northern hemisphere, winter is festive season where bright colours like red are king, so you might want to consider indulging in richer, deeper colours, such as wine, chestnut and dark violets. The same applies if you live in the Southern hemisphere, as your skin is paler during the winter season and the colours of the clothes are lighter, so it becomes rather favourable to make your face look radiant and vibrant with colours full of life.
Don't forget, however, that you most balance this look out. If you choose rich shades for the eyes, opt for a lighter lipstick. Medium to dark jewel tone colours are a great choice for lips, but you need to try different shades to find the one that suits you best. If you have small lips, you might be better off choosing medium berry shades, while darker shades, such as crimson, are more suitable for full lips.
Winter is also the best time of year to wear a bold and sexy red lip shade. You just need to sample different shades to find that is right for you. Try as many as you can as there is an endless array of shades. Just remember that red lipstick has been around for way too long. It is the classic and most feminine lipstick colour out there, so the choices are infinite. Red is also a colour that can be used for many occasions, Whether you are wearing a fancy dress or rocking a black leather jacket, red lipstick can be the final touch of your look.
During the day, you might want to opt for lighter colours, go easy on makeup and wear the classic neutral eye look with a deep brown liner. In the evening, opt for a classic look and use a deep chocolate red paired with a bright gold shadow with a hint of shimmer.
Don't forget to moisturise your lips during this season, as lips teng get chapped with the cold and wind. This helps to make your lips look glossy which is a good look for the season. To boost this effect, apply a shimmery gloss over any darker shade to boost the glam festive look.
This time of year is also good for deep chestnut brownie tones on your eyes, which match really well with any berry or jewel-tone lipsticks. To help brighten up your face, choose charcoal grey and metallic earth shades. When you go out at night, however, you might want to choose darker eye shades.
Spring
When the flowers bloom, it's time for you to renew yourself and create a fresh look with light colours. Choose a champagne pink colour or any other neutral eye shade to get a fresh look. If you would rather opt for a whimsical spring look, you might want to try earth-toned shadows aimed at creating a soft smokey eye and pair with a peachy-pink or nude colour with a hint of pink. Whether you have blue eyes or brown, earth tone shadows are perfect for all eye colours. Use a soft rose colour blush for the cheeks to complete this look and it goes particularly well with light pastel eyeshadow.
Summer
Use of makeup decreases during the hot months as your skin will probably enjoy a nice complexion thanks to UVB rays. Although this tanned look might make you look healthier, you might want to take the necessary precautions as any darkening in the skin is an indication of damage. Make sure you wear sunscreen and protect your skin with the an appropriate foundation.
During summertime, opt for bronzers that give the skin vitality and a healthy glow without the harmful UV effects. Apply powder bronzer with a large dome brush with light strokes to the areas of the face that normally get the most sun exposure, namely the outer cheek area, temples and lower jaw line.
Fall
Emerald green and burgundy eyeshadow are the colours that will best suit you during this season, which is all about warmth and depth of colour. In the daytime, mix these shadows with lighter liquid eyeliners - metallic gold and wine would go really well paired with these shadows. Dark brown/black or true blackliner looks will be best paired with warm eyeshadows shades when you apply your makeup in the evening.
