Winter Makeup Looks & Trends to Watch - 2021/2022 Edition

By celebrity makeup artist and clean beauty expert Katey Denno

How is it December yet? We’ll never know. But winter is definitely coming and with it, dark lips and bold eye makeup! Our Credo Ambassador and Clean Makeup Artist Katey Denno rounded up four winter makeup looks and trends that will be big this season. Check them out. 


A  brown, purple, or deep red lip is very winter 2021/2022, and is always a great addition to a cold weather wardrobe – whether for a holiday party, or for every day. It’s up to you to decide if you want to pair this winter makeup look with a sultry eye or not. Anything goes!

A less exaggerated brow than what we saw over the last 5-6 years, this season’s brushed up, *but much less intensely filled in* brow is taking center stage.

Eye makeup continues to reign supreme as daily mask-wearing is not yet a thing of the past. Pops of subdued color on lids is a fun way to self-express and show your creativity, and this season we’re seeing a lot of heavily-saturated neutral tones swept across the entire lid, under the lower lashes, and/or above the lash line. Whether it’s shimmery or matte, it’s all in, so play around with placement and shape!

Keeping with the focus of makeup on the eye, we’re going to continue seeing a whole lotta bold color eye shadow – both matte and with shimmer - around the eyes, finished with multiple coats of mascara. Liner is optional!
