Brrr! It's freezing outside—but that doesn't mean your makeup has to get the cold shoulder.

 In fact, it's often easier to get more experimental with cosmetics in the wintertime, since you don't have to worry as much about looking overdone or having your liner or foundation melt off in the heat. 

And here's where we come in... the inspiration part! Suggestion: browse through these pics and then recreate one (or three) at home to beat the chilly-weather blues. Maybe you'll lust after winter standbys like Michael Kors' rosy cheeks or Gucci's moody dark lipstick. Or if eyeshadow's more your thing, how about Jason Wu's Pantone emerald green or Chanel's ethereal silver? Even more dramatic—but insanely fun—would be some Stella McCartney-style blue mascara or a Moschino Cheap & Chic metallic lip.
