Winter 2011 Makeup Tips

This season it's time you stand out and try bolder makeup styles. From the daring eyeliner and smokey eyes to darker shades on your lips and nails, take a look to some of the hottest trends and winter 2011 makeup tips for you to try. You just have to practice in order to obtain a flawless makeup look with a minimum amount of effort.

If until now you weren't such a big fan of the eyeliner, for winter 2011 you have to step out from your shell, take chances and bring more attention towards your eyes.

Maybe you find it rather difficult to apply, but with practice and patience you'll certainly manage to do it right, especially now when everything is possible, every shape and size. Moreover, a red lipstick can add glam and femininity in an instant. Here are some makeup tips for you to draw your inspiration for your winter 2011 makeup looks.

• Eyeliner can be considered as a real lifesaver for girls who have smaller eyes and want to bring depth to them. You can apply eyeliner only on the top lid in order to add expressiveness to your look. If you use a liquid eyeliner, make smaller lines in the inner and outer corner and in the middle, then connect them. For the bottom eyelid it is preferable to use a pencil eyeliner. For a night out with your friends try the cat eye makeup for a sexy look.

• The famous smokey eyes makeup made a strong comeback among winter 2011 makeup trends, coming in so many different versions.

This season, the classic smokey eye makeup is gone and it was reinvented and redefined in a stylish and very creative way. You can try the bi-colour version, but make sure you keep the severe tone using darker shades of brown, golden, and taupe. Pair black and gray, golden and brown, or gray and blue.

Also, smokey eyes in softer colours work amazing with a nude makeup for the lips and skin. You can also try a bolder and innovative version as spotted at Chanel.

• This is the perfect season for you to play with different eye shadow colours, whether you choose sweet shades of pink, beige, or brown, or on the contrary, more powerful and warmer shades of purple or chocolate. We cannot forget the already popular metallics, such as golden or silver, for a luminous look.

• For winter 2011 you are allowed to use lighter eye shadow on the entire top eyelid, even going up towards the brow. It is not necessary to use mascara or eyeliner, but keep the makeup as simple as possible.

It is trendy and luminous, but you need to feel it and wear it with self-confidence.

• Orange is not just for the lips. This season it comes in a daring version for the eyes too. On a doll porcelain skin, a stunning orange makeup for the eyes can represent the detail that brings the attention to your look adding a luminous and electric touch. It is a great choice for a special evening event.

• We all love rebellious eyebrows! You shouldn't forget them as they play an important role for your look. This season, keep your brows as natural as possible when it comes to their shape or colour. Make a smart investment and purchase an eyebrow pencil with a creamy texture in order to add a slightly healthy glowing. After applying the pencil, style them upwards using a special gel.
