Get the look… Après ski Comments Off on Get the look… Après ski
Oh, the weather outside is frightful… But inside we have a roaring log fire, plenty of chilled drinks and great times with friends ahead!
Whether you’re heading out to the slopes this winter, or you’re just looking to recreate the après ski vibe at home, there’s nothing quite like slope style to make you feel Christmassy wherever you’re celebrating this year.
Slope style is the perfect blend of luxury and comfort, with practical and warm clothing transformed into super stylish atire.
If you’re less inclined to fork out hundreds for a cashmere cardie, never fear! We’ve created the ultimate guide to après ski style for everyone without breaking the bank before the big day!
The make-up method
An après ski look takes advantage of the cool weather and works well for an all-round winter look! Beauty expert Bethany Mota created this brilliantly fun and fabulous tutorial to help everyone achieve the winter look this season!
This is a fantastically understated look that would work really well from day to night – perfect for après ski! We love the slight shimmer on the eyeshadow which is a great way to bring glitter into day-to-day life! Bethany clearly knows her stuff and applies the make-up with a confident and laid-back flourish.
Après ski is super laid back, so everyday clothing such as skinny jeans and a soft, comfortable knitted jumper work really well for a starting point. There are a few extra items that will finish off the look and make you look like you’ve stepped straight off the slope!
Anyone holidaying on the slopes knows that it gets really cold, whether you’re skiing or meeting friends for a party! Christmas gloves are a fun and toasty way to bring the holiday spirit into your outfit without going over the top.
No après ski outfit is complete without some (fake) fur! The best way to use fur for après comes in the form of the boots; however, rather than buying some brand new fur boots, adding some fake fur leg warmers over a pair of your best loved booties will create the look without breaking the bank!
The alternative looks
If you’re looking to put your own twist on this style, there are lots of great alternatives out there for people feeling a little more daring! Whether you bring in a fun edge or prefer something a little more Christmassy, have some fun with the look and make it your own!
While the eye make-up in this look is very similar to that in the tutorial video, it also has a slightly brighter lipstick making it fun whilst remaining understated. Healthy looking cheeks are also a must, so complement your bright lipstick with some blush across the cheekbones.
Is there anything more wintery than snow and ice? When you’re hitting the slopes you’re guarenteed to come across plenty of it so bring these icy colours into the make-up! The blue is balanced with darker pink colours and make the eyes really pop!
The most daring look of them all, this style almost transforms the face into a blank canvas with complete focus upon the lips. Using the winter favourite Vaseline, you can easily create the eye make-up along with some mascara resulting in really smooth skin, leaving you with plenty of time to create your own dark and dusky lips.
