3 ways to wear bright color makeup!

When it comes to winter beauty, it's all about a dash of bold-color makeup and messy, minimalist hair. From bright orange lips and cobalt-lined eyes to all-over pastel pink, these fresh ideas will provide a cool update to your cold-weather beauty routine.

1. Electric Orange Lips: Seen on the runway at Rag & Bone, Prabal Gurung and DKNY, this sporty, energetic color replaced classic red and bordeaux hues for a fresh new take on the bold lip.
