3 Winter Makeup Looks Get Earthy: Taking Taupe to the Next Level

Winter Makeup Gets Earthy: Taking Taupe to the Next Level

Earth tones are considered a summer makeup essential. If you’ve put your warmer neutrals away for winter, it’s time to break those babies back out. Warm makeup hues resuscitate dreary winter skin in a heartbeat.

Most of us deal with some degree of less than glowing skin once the depths of winter are upon us. When highlighter alone simply isn’t cutting it, it’s time to turn to earth tones.

For winter makeup, think deeper earthy hues and intense tones. Rich bronze, mahogany, terracotta…even dusky greens and dramatic burgundy. Those brown lip colors you’ve been waiting to put into action are just right. The look is natural with a punch.

Earth tones are easy to pull off and universally flattering. Choose from the products below, and complementary looks, to find your perfect winter makeup look.

3 Winter Makeup Looks Using Earth Tones

Winter Makeup Ilia Beauty Gypsy

Look 1: For a super natural look with a hint of drama, play up lips. Start with Kjaer Weis Cream Blush in Desired Glow on cheeks. Perfect paired with Ilia Beauty Lip Gloss in Gypsy and a swipe of buttery Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow in Magnetic.

Winter Makeup Ilia Beauty Take On Me

Look 2: Neutrals with glam factor work for day or night. Think intense eyes. A brilliant, berry-toned copper does the trick nicely. Try creamy, dreamy Ilia Beauty Silken Shadow in Take On Me. A good coat or two of black mascara and a nude lip let eyes do the talking.

Winter Makeup Ilia Beauty Solar

Look 3: Want to take your neutral look outside the box? Go for something unexpected. Yellow-greens, robust golds, and deep berries take this natural look to the next level. Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow in Green Depth is a green with gold shimmer. Or try RMS Beauty Eye Polish in Solar – a golden bronze you can layer for intensity. Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Captivate is the ideal coppery-bronze shimmer to play up either shadow.
