Mecca Australia Sally Axford breaks the biggest myths about winter beauty – and revealed her best tips
A make-up artist has revealed her tricks for choosing the perfect winter makeup – and why it is no longer a dark lipstick.
According to Mecca Australia & # 39; s senior artist Sally Axford, the rules book that was once used for winter beauty, has disappeared from the window.
She said trends like the dying of your hair are a dark color, & # 39; vampy & # 39; lips or wearing a burgundy manicure during the colder months, now are simply wrong advice from the 90s.
Here Sally has invalidated beauty winter myths and embraced a more modern approach with dewy skin, bright hues and glossy finishes.
A makeup artist has announced their tips for winter makeup – and it's no longer just a dark lip
Only wear dark makeup in the winter

FALSE: It is easy to automatically reach the darker eyeshadow palettes when the weather gets colder, but according to Sally this is the best time to bring out the bright colors.
& # 39; Brights are central when combined with neutral winter gear – it's almost like working with a blank canvas, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Play with pastel colors and bright colors, such as baby Jane and Fatal eye shadow from NARS, and try color blocking – by setting your lip color with your eye color in modern matte finishes (we love baby blue eye shadow with an orange red lip). & # 39;
You should change your foundational shadow seasonally
FACT: Many people have different skin tones depending on the season, so it is a good idea to have different foundation colors to hand.
& # 39; I recommend a paler, & # 39; winter & # 39; foundation ready as soon as you start to lose some color after the summer. I made the mistake of still using my summer color well in my lighter months and it is not ideal, & Sally said.
& # 39; You can also opt for foundation lightening drops such as the Mecca Max Life Proof Liquid Lightener to adjust your shade throughout the year. & # 39;

Winter requires a vampire lip
FALSE: Although it is easy to choose a burgundy lipstick in the cooler months, this is not the only option, especially as we have seen the revival of lip gloss.
Sally explained that in the winter we wear more leather, wool and matte fabrics, which she likes to combine with a lacquered lip.
This is because she thinks the look is simple but impressive and a more protective option for chapped winter lips.
The Hourglass New Unreal High Shine Volumising Lip Glosses are incredibly shiny and hydrating and also comfortable on the lip.

You cannot wear bronzer in the winter
FACT AND FALSE: This depends on your skin color, as Sally said that natural deeper skin tones can continue to use bronzer to give heat to the face in the colder months.
But she warned that if you are paler and you use it for contouring, she would choose a more contoured product, such as Westman Face Trace, because it looks more like a shadow and sculpts the face without the noticeable warmth. from a bronzer.
If wearing bronzer during the colder months seems like you have been stirred in badly by pale skin with a makeup brush, you can always use blush to add warmth.
She said that a pale coral or peach can bring warmth and clarity to the face.

Avoid false tan unless you are on vacation
FALSE: For some people, a summer glow is essential all year round, but for others it can be a fake-tan disaster.
If your skin becomes quite pale in the winter, you should use a light formula and apply only one layer.
Jules Von Hep, founder of Isle Of Paradise, uses a technique that he & # 39; patchwork tanning & # 39; calls.
"Just color the parts of your body on the show and keep your product warm for longer," he said.
He recommends the use of Isle of Paradise Drops mixed with a moisturizer.
& # 39; This ensures that my skin stays soft when the heater is turned on, but it is golden and glowing instead of pale and dry & he said.
