Recreate Winter Makeup Looks With DIY Materials

Winter makeup looks are one of my favorites because it’s a perfect time for me to experiment with all of my shadow and liners – I get to be really extravagant with them, as in extravagant and use DIY materials!

This year, don't subdue your look with demure pastel colors and muted makeup — go glam! Bold, glam style is in this winter season, and I'm here to provide some easy DIY tips to stay on-point, fashion-wise.

Based on a post from Allure, I've provided you with 3 DIY ways to get recreate of the experimental looks this winter season using craft materials. Read on and start rockin' your holiday style.


1. Crystals

When it comes to wearing rhinestones on your face, placement is everything! Confine crystals to the area around your eyes and keep them about the size of your pupil or smaller. Crystals are available at most craft stores and you can easily glue them on the lids or along the lash lines using Eyelash Adhesive so they stay put all day.



2. Temporary Gilting

Full-body temporary tats are now a thing (RE: Coachella), but you can make your own customized faux face tattoo designs with this easy DIY technique: Start with double-sided wig tape, such as Vapon Topstick. Cut the strips into the shapes and sizes you want, dust one side of the adhesive with loose glitter (Kendal tells Allure she uses Make Up For Ever Glitters, which come in several colors), and stick the other, clean side of the tape to your skin.



3. Paillettes

Sequins look incredibly cool as “face decor,” but aren't always so easy to apply. It's used by many makeup artists backstage–painstakingly using tweezers to individually pick up and place paillettes on models' faces. To make things easier, brush a thin film of eyelash glue on your lids, press your finger into a small pile of sequins (Make Up For Ever Extra Large Size Glitters are perfect) to pick some up, and then dab them on your coated lids and voila! You're done.
