Sweater Weather Makeup and Hair
A super-soft, gorgeously knit, kind-of-gigantic sweater is something of a goop uniform, particularly when paired with slim black leather leggings and boots, heels, or bright-white sneakers. Depending on the shoe, it’s a look that’s perfect for work, the weekend, a date, or even the plane: Sexy, easy, chic. The makeup and hair that goes best with it is also pretty much a goop uniform: Simple, pretty, not a lot of fuss, gleamy, glowy.
The look—especially when it’s cool enough to be thinking about sweaters—should always start with moisture, no matter what your skin type. For anything from normal to dry skin, smooth goop by Juice Beauty face oil between your palms, press into a damp face, and wait three-to-five minutes before applying any makeup; day moisturizer works, too, and everyone—even those with oily skin—should swipe on a little eye cream right before applying makeup.
goop by Juice Beauty Enriching Face Oilgoop, $110
This nourishing, potent miracle oil sinks instantly into skin and starts to work. Made with a pure blend of organic oils, it leaves skin remarkably supple, soft, and glowing. It turbo-charges any moisturizer, but also hydrates beautifully on its own. It can even be patted on over makeup for a mid-day pick-me-up. The Enriching Face Oil is formulated with USDA certified organic ingredients and contains approximately 99% total organic content.
goop by Juice Beauty Perfecting Eye Creamgoop, $90
The Perfecting Eye Cream deeply hydrates, soothes, and firms the delicate eye area, visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Richly emollient, it increases elasticity and plumps skin for a more youthful appearance. Formulated with olive butter, sandalwood nut oil, and powerful peptides, this high-tech formula delivers immediate and ongoing results.
Whether your skin looks best bare or with a little tint/smoothing/coverage, don’t forget SPF, even in winter. Pot of Shade from Kypris gives the slightest hint of blur, Coola SPF 30 gives a barely-perceptible bit of tint, and the Dew Skin from Beautycounter gives even, flattering coverage as it floods skin with moisture and antioxidants, and tints it for gorgeously smooth finish.
Beautycounter Dew Skin SPF 20goop, $39
This glowy, translucent, instantly perfecting SPF 20 has to be the ultimate no makeup-makeup of all time. It’s less about masking flaws, and more about looking and feeling like you—but better. The delicate, deeply hydrating formula smoothes in like a dream; zinc oxide soothes and protects all day; black currant, peony-root extract, and vitamin C address age spots and enhance brightness, and powerful moisturizers leave you with firmer, smoother-looking skin. If you’re looking for coverage, this is not your product—but we guarantee it makes anyone’s skin look instantly more beautiful. It’s so sheer that different shades work for many different skins; if you’re in doubt, try No. 2, which works for practically everyone who tries it.
Coola Unscented Matte Face Tint SPF 30goop, $36
Coola’s Matte Tint SPF 30 has the freakiest (and coolest) feel ever: It goes on like foam dust, leaving nary a trace behind. It has a very sheer universal tint and matte finish that hides imperfections and evens skin tone, too, meaning it’s kind of magic in a bottle.
Kypris Pot of Shade Heliotropicgoop, $68
This broad-spectrum, beautifully translucent formula is perfect for everyday protection. Boosted with moisturizing botanicals (and no essential oils so it’s ideal for reactive and sensitive skin) and non-nano, non-whitening zinc oxide, it’s brilliant as primer, leaving skin radiant, plumped, and smooth. It feels incredible going on, blends like a dream, soothes any skin type, and makes serious, long-lasting protection a luxurious daily ritual.
Rather than trying to address dark circles, redness, or breakouts with extra (or thicker) foundation, use whatever CC/BB/tinted moisturizer/foundation to even skin tone, and leave the concealing to…concealer. The coconut-oil-infused RMS un-concealer goes on like a dream with either a brush (we love Bobbi Brown’s concealer brush) or your fingertips. Pat to blend—don’t rub it in. (When you rub in concealer, you rub it off what you’re trying to conceal and onto a another part of your face. Pat lightly for a few seconds instead, and it’ll blend perfectly.)
RMS Beauty “UN” Cover-Upgoop, $36
This moisturizing and healing cover-up smoothes blemishes and blends easily, leaving flawless skin behind.
Define your eyes with mascara; the one from Juice Beauty is blackest-black, glossy, ultra-defining, and it doesn’t flake or smudge. If you need a little more oomph, a bit of black or brown eyeliner worked into the outer upper lashes will make your eyes stand out without looking like full-on liner. Dot the pencil (the one from Juice Beauty is perfection with the mascara) or liquid (try this one by W3LL PEOPLE—it’s the only clean, non-toxic liquid liner we’ve seen, and it’s amazing) at the base of the lashes, then gingerly connect the dots, sticking as close as you can to the lash line. Swipe away mistakes with a damp Q-Tip.
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Ultra-Natural Mascaragoop, $22
You won’t believe this mascara is as clean, natural, and organic as it is: The intense pigment, high shine, and serious volume-building capability rivals that of any conventional mascara. Plus, it leaves lashes lush, long, and feathery-soft without the toxic chemicals commonly used in conventional mascara; the formula is ultra-smooth, clump-free, and it doesn’t smudge or flake. GP’s personal tip: Smooth on one coat, wait a few seconds for it to dry, then build color and length with a second coat for a look that instantly wakes up your whole face.
Juice Beauty Phyto-Pigments Precision Eye Pencilgoop, $20
Deeply pigmented, rich, and creamy, this soft pencil defines with incredible precision and blends effortlessly, making the perfect cat-eye, smoky eye, or rocker-chic drama incredibly easy. Made with pure, intense plant pigments full of antioxidants, it’s brilliant day or night, no matter what look you’re going for. No sharpening required: simply twist up to reveal more (intense, ultra-flattering) color.
W3LL PEOPLE Expressionist Liquid Eyelinergoop, $18
This incredible (clean, nontoxic) liquid liner is as brilliant for a great cat-eye swoop as it is for subtle, natural eye definition. It’s blackest-black and incredibly easy to apply—focus on the base of the lashes and work outwards. After a few minutes of play where you can easily wipe away mistakes, it sets and lasts better than most conventional chemical eyeliners: It doesn’t smudge, flake, or fade away, and it’s water-resistant. Miraculously, because it’s made with skin-calming organic rosemary oil, it’s great for people with sensitive skin, eyes, or both. Whether you love dramatic liner or practically none, this is the one for you. TIP: Subtly applied liquid liner means you need fewer coats of mascara to define your eyes.
A swipe of natural-looking cheek stain—try the brilliant-but-sheer Lip2Cheek pot from RMS, or Tata Harper’s creamy Lip & Cheek tint—leaves a beautiful flush without a lot of texture on the face, like you just came in from the cold.
RMS Beauty LIP2CHEEKgoop, $36
This is the ultimate multi-tasking product: You can use these ultra-flattering shades on both lips and cheeks, making it a go-to for women who want to streamline their morning routine. (It’s pretty great in a gym bag, too.)
Tata Harper Lip and Cheek Tintgoop, $36
Strictly natural pigments and added anti-aging elements earn these hard working two-in-ones pride of place in every purse, desk drawer, and makeup cabinet. Whether applied to cheeks or lips, the color goes on sheer for a natural yet sexy, flushed look.
A polished, softly neutral lip pulls the whole look into focus—though, truly, this look works with pretty much any lipcolor. The model here is wearing Kosås Weightless Lipcolor in Rosewater, which is subtle and pretty all at once—and looks good on just about everyone. You could go darker but sheerer with Olio e Osso tinted lip balm in Currant. Another pretty, easy-to-wear one is Beautycounter Lip Sheer in Rose.
Kosas Weightless Lip Colorgoop, $24
These hydrating, everyday-wearable lipsticks are made with organic oils and botanical extracts (antioxidant green tea, rosehip, grapeseed, and collagen-boosting sweet orange), plus deeply hydrating mango and shea butters. The eight universally-flattering shades are perfect everyday lip colors; depending on your style, they range from full-on dramatic to subtle and natural. No matter which one you choose, it’ll instantly compliment and brighten a natural complexion.
Olio E Osso Balmgoop, $28
This citrusy, super-moisturizing tinted lip/cheek balm delivers all the cushy hydration of the original No. 1 Balm, with the addition of the most flattering-to-all-skin-types sheer pigment out there, period. It’s the sort of your-lips-but-better color that brightens up your whole face, yet doesn’t read as “lipstick” or even “gloss”—just all-natural prettiness, pure and simple. Bonus: The stick fits the shape of your lips perfectly, so it feels especially fantastic going on.
Beautycounter Lip Sheergoop, $30
These gorgeously tinted lip sheers are intensely moisturizing, completely safe, and colored with the prettiest, most flattering shades. They are made with completely clean, non-toxic ingredients.
