Winter can do a number on your mood—yep, the winter blues are real. But just because the days are short and the temperatures are low doesn’t mean you can’t see on the bright side. Well, at least when it comes to your makeup, that is. Perk up your face, eyes, and lips with these colorful winter makeup looks, including shiny plum lipstick and an electric blue cat eye.

Winter Makeup Idea #1: Snow Globe Complexion

It’s time to shimmer and shine in highlighter! Add a touch of glow to your skin with a luminous lotion or powder. You can use highlighter all over your face for major pizzazz or just to targeted areas to highlight certain features. We’re partial to the following makeup tutorial.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Start with your skin care routine. Glowing skin starts with your skin care routine. Use a clay facial cleanser, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Cleanser, then follow up with a charcoal mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask. Finally, finish with the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin.

Step 2: Prime your face. Next up: Primer. Smooth the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Lock Makeup Primer all over your skin.

Step 3: Apply foundation. Use a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender to dab on a radiant finish foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation.

Step 4: Conceal imperfections. Have dark circles under eyes? Use the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer to disguise and brighten.

Step 5: Add highlighter. It’s snow globe time! Apply a thin layer of the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer all over your face.

Step 6: Set your makeup look. Give your face a spritz of the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Spray & Set Makeup Extender Setting Spray to help lock your makeup look in place.

Winter Makeup Idea #2: Glazed Purple Lips

Winter is prime time to set down your matte lipstick and pick up one with a shinier finish. This season, try a shiny purple lipstick—purple is the it color of 2018, so you’ll be totally on trend.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Exfoliate your lips. Before putting lipstick anywhere near your lips, use a scrub to exfoliate away any dead skin cells from the surface. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Smooth & Glow Scrub.

Step 2: Prime your pout. After exfoliating, use a touch of lip primer, which can help create a smooth base for your lipstick application.

Step 3: Apply lipstick. Paint your lips with the L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in Gleaming Plum.

Winter Makeup Idea #3: Rosy Cheeks

Nothing screams winter quite like the rosy cheeks you see after spending time out in the cold. If you’d rather stay indoors (we don’t blame you!), but you’d still like to sport pink cheeks reminiscent of the cold weather season, then this next makeup tutorial featuring blush is for you.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prime your skin. Reach for a matte finish primer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Lock Makeup Primer, and apply it all of your face.

Step 2: Create a flawless-looking base. Apply a matte finish foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Matte Foundation, with a makeup blender.

Step 3: Apply blush. Now it’s time to fake your rosy glow. It turns out there is a technique to using blush—so make sure you’re doing it right! Grab the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Blush palette. You can wear any of the four shades alone or max and layer them for a custom look. Use a fluffy makeup brush to dust color onto just the apples of your cheeks for a natural-looking flush.

Step 4: Set your look. After applying blush, sweep the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder all over your face with a fluffy makeup brush to help keep everything in place.

Winter Makeup Idea #4: Electric Blue Cat Eye

The cat eye is a classic makeup look for a reason—but the new year is the perfect time to try this go-to makeup technique in a brighter color. Put down your black eyeliner and follow along.

Get the look by following these simple steps:

Step 1: Prime your eyes. First things first: Apply an eye makeup primer to your lids to help create an even canvas for your eyeliner.

Step 2: Draw on your cat eye. Pick up the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Electric Blue and draw the angled wing of your cat eye from the outermost corner of your eye. Then, draw a straight diagonal line from the highest point of your angle down towards your inner corner. Fill in the wing.

Step 3: Finish with mascara. Top off your vibrant blue cat eye with the L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Lash Paradise Mascara.
