A Winter Wonderland of Makeup Do’s & Don’ts By Celebrity Makeup Artist Suzanne D. LIPSTICK HIGHLIGHTS WINTER TO SPRING A red lip is the highlight of this winter to spring season. Playing with different shades to compliment your skin tone, a range of soft, pinkish reds to a bold, classic to a luscious black cherry, reds whirled their way in loud and proud. Being that this color creates its own statement, keep the cheeks and eyes simple. Blush your cheeks with a more neutral tone. You can also try using an apricot or a light pink to add a hint of color. Both are a nice compliment. My Tip For Playing With Reds: Work backwards this season. You typically save the darker looks for the evening, right? Have fun with it! Try using a darker red during the day and a pinkish red for your evening dinner.

Blues And Greens For Eyes For the eyes, blues and greens have been a big hit this winter and made quite the impression on the runways of New York Fashion Week. Apply either color along the lash line and give it a good smudge, apply to just the outer corner of the eyes or if you want to really have fun, apply all over the eyelid and top it with a shimmery eggshell or

frosty white under the brow. For those of you with brown eyes, an emerald or a lime green pairs beautifully and gives your brown a vibrant pop. Those with blue and blue-grey eyes can try a deep, rich, royal blue. Try adding a baby blue shimmer to the inner corners of the eyes for a little extra dimension. For my green and hazel lookers, play with a bold, bright green. That would really exaggerate your color. You can pair this with a red, coral, pink or nude lip.

Less Color Can Also Be Glam IT’S UP TO YOU! For those of you that prefer a less colorful approach, another look this season is, well, you! A bare face is another top choice. (Does that ever go out of style?!) A flawless application with gently kissed cheeks, light shadows on the eyes paired with a slim, black eyeliner and nude lips is always a winner. The highlight of this look is the brows. Yes, ladies. Hello Audrey Hepburn! Use an angle brush with a powder (there are eyebrow pallets but if you don’t have one, just use an eye shadow) or pencil and swipe on a color matching your hair. Fill in a smooth clean line along the bottom of the brow, fill in throughout the brow, then define a line along the top. The fun part with this is the shape. You can give yourself a more pointed arch once you hit your peak or smooth it over for a softer arch. Start by filling in your actual brow then add another swipe along

the top to make them appear thicker. Play with it until you reach a thickness you like. With such fun and vibrant styles along with one’s own natural beauty, the best part is a little mixing and matching.
