winter eyeshadow trends

Think bold colours, thick liners and smoky tones. These are the eyeshadow shades to rock on your lids this winter.

When we think of wintertime, our thoughts mostly go to cosying up in bed with a hot chocolate, coffee or tea, dark mornings and earlier nights to stay out of the cold. crisp air and shorter days. 

But winter is also a great time for experimenting with winter fashion and new makeup trends. 

From bold eyeshadow looks, to smoky eyes, graphic liner and even a touch of glitter and shimmer, here are our picks for eyeshadow trends to rock this winter. 

Soft Eyeliner

Colour Palette: Browns, Burgundy

We’ve definitely seen this trend all over Tik Tok with brown eyeliner.

Brown eyeliner is a softer option for eyeliner as opposed to black, and can make the eyes pop and make the eyelashes appear longer.

Smokey Eye

Colour Palette: Browns, Blue, Burgundy

Wintertime is the perfect time to wear a smokey eye for a bold eyeshadow look. 

Before you get intimidated or scared, remember a winter smokey eye doesn’t have to be a traditional black smokey eye; and actually a brown, burgundy or blue smokey eye is quite the trend this season.

Using an eyeshadow stick or smoking out an eyeliner by blending it with a small, dense eyeshadow brush is a great way to smoke out the eyelids.

We’ve seen graphic eyeliner as a trend for a while now, but it is continuing to remain popular this season.

If a soft eyeliner isn’t your thing, a bold, graphic eyeliner might be for you. 

From all different shapes and sizes, double eyeliner, coloured eyeliner or graphic lines will be the trend you want to try this winter. 

Try with a gel eyeliner with a small eyeliner brush, or try spritzing your eyeshadow with setting spray, and dipping your eyeliner brush into the wet eyeshadow to create a paste, which will allow for abstract eyeliner looks.

For brown eyes, any colour will match, but green or blue’s are in season.
