Winter makeup is all about being bold, dark and dramatic. Play up your eyes using smoky tones, experiment with colored eyeliner in a winter hue like navy or Kelly green, or vamp up your lips with burst of matte color that you wouldn’t dare try during the warmer months.

Selena Gomez is sporting the most popular winter makeup look on the red carpet right now: a grey smoky eye highlighted with white shimmer. The colors will work with nearly any outfit.

To get this look:

Line your top and bottom lids with black eyeliner. Make the line thicker toward the outer corner of your eye. Don’t forget your waterline!

Sweep dark grey eye shadow on the outer half of your lids. Brush some of the eye shadow up onto the outer corner of your brow bone. This will make your eyes appear larger.

Clean your brush, then apply white shimmer eye shadow to the inner half of your lids, reaching all the way down to the inner corner of your eye. For an extra-shimmery look, press the shadow into your eyelid so it builds up a few coats.

Brush a soft dusting of the white shimmer eye shadow on and above your brow bone.

Curl your eyelashes, then carefully sweep on an even coat of mascara.

Use a peach-brown blush on the apples of your cheeks.

Apply metallic dark peach lipstick.
