Sure, the primary difference between summer and winter beauty is that once the latter comes, your makeup no longer melts off your face the second you put it on. (Win!) But if summer is the season of no-makeup makeup, then fall and winter give way to markedly more creative looks. And while there’s no stopping you from keeping your makeup minimal all year ‘round—I’m majorly guilty of it—the cooler weather is your ticket to try something new.
If you don’t want to wait until the first snowfall to start experimenting, look no further: Between the technicolor eye at Fendi’s fall show, the popsicle lips at Gaultier Haute Couture, Schiaparelli’s insanely gorgeous take on a sunset smoky eye, and the Twiggy-inspired spider lashes we saw at Jason Wu, there’s no shortage of winter makeup ideas that you can start wearing right this moment. 55 of ’em ahead.
