Less Is More: How To Accentuate Your Eyes With This Winter Eye Makeup

Your eyes are the windows to your soul, so you should accentuate them! This season, bring out those eyes with these winter eye makeup ideas.

These winter eye makeup tips are sure to make your eyes pop!

When the weather changes, so should your makeup. We're not just talking color palette or type of products. We're talking about the application. It’s fun to create a dramatic look but just because it’s the winter season doesn’t mean your makeup needs to be as heavy as the snowfall. It’s a common misconception that more is less when it’s actually the other way around.

In fact, the one thing you want to go a little heavier on is your moisturizer. It’s easier for the skin to chafe and chap due to the dry cold air, and a good winter moisturizer will keep your skin from feeling the harsh effects of winter and help create a beautiful smooth canvas for your makeup application.

Now, back to your makeup. Whether you go for a dramatic look or a more subtle look, your eyes are the easiest feature to play up. In order to create this cool winter eye makeup look you only need four things:

  1. eyeliner;
  2. mascara;
  3. an eye shadow palette with three colors;
  4. a dual-sided eye shadow brush.

Your palette should consist of color shades that bring out your eyes, shades that contrast and compliment your eye color at the same time. 


For Brown or Black Eyes

Create a little intensity with black eyeliner. Use a palette with mossy green, deep purple, bronze gold, charcoal, mocha, and silver. A signature look for brown eyes would include a pairing of bronze and mocha, with black eyeliner and black mascara.


For Green or Hazel Eyes

Your color palette should include rosy pink, bronzy gold, eggplant, and wine red. Your eyeliner should be a lighter color as well, like purple, brown, or charcoal. For green/hazel eyes, a signature look may consist of paring bronzy gold and eggplant, with brown eyeliner and brown/black mascara. 

For Grey Eyes

Brown eyeliner and an eye shadow palette with silvery grey, bronze, coral, and purple will make your eyes pop. A killer color combo for grey eyes is a brown eyeliner and brown mascara with silver and purple eye shadow.

For Blue Eyes

Brown or bronze eyeliner is your best bet. With that, your palette should consist of champagne, rich brown, and medium brown or slate grey. A great combo includes champagne with a slate grey eye shadow and brown eyeliner and brown mascara. 

Bring It All Together

When creating a complete look, make sure to blend the colors that complement each other and bring out your particular eye color. The trick is to use a light hand and less of the actual product.

The application is simple. First, apply the lighter eyeshadow to the inner part of your eye and then use the darker eyeshadow in the crease and outer part of the eye. Afterward, apply the eyeliner along the top of the eyelid and the waterline. A general rule of thumb is to smudge the eyeliner using a smudging tool so that you don’t disrupt the eyeshadow. This simple application makes for a simple but dazzling winter eye makeup look!
