6 Winter Trends to Try With Your Your On-The-Go Makeup Kit

Can we all agree that winter is the best, especially when it comes to the holidays? You get to be surrounded by joy, kindness, generosity, and greatest of all, family. Another of our favorite things about winter here at Subtl is that it offers a time to try new trends with your on-the-go makeup kit. If you’re new here, we call them Staks and they’re a must-have if you’re traveling this winter.

Before jetting off, let us introduce you to six winter trends to try with your on-the-go makeup kit:

Even though fall is fizzling out, the hashtag #pumpkinspicemakeup is still taking over TikTok, proving that the trend is transferring into winter. Creators like Victoria Lyn, Alissa Janay, and Meredith Duxbury helped the pumpkin spice makeup trend take off. Basically, it’s all about using the colors and hues of autumn to create a beautifully cohesive makeup look.

"Pumpkin spice makeup involves warm tones; it's monochromatic and smoky – just like the cozy fire you snuggle up next to while you cradle a warm mug of pumpkin spice in your hands," says Jamie Greenberg, a Los Angeles-based celebrity makeup artist. Fun fact: Pumpkin spice makeup could even be seen on the Burberry 2024 runway, further showing that the trend is super in.

Here’s what to add to your Subtl on-the-go makeup Stak to achieve the pumpkin spice trend:

As we all know, blush has had a major resurgence this year (which we are totally here for at Subtl!). And thankfully – the trend isn’t going anywhere. On the Kim Shui 2024 runway, many of the models had bold, vivid blush draped up to their temples, giving a snow day meets 80s makeup aesthetic. The blushed-up look gave off a youthful vibe that people watching loved.

Beauty guru Helin Doski says, “The heavy blush trend essentially consists of applying a pronounced amount of blush typically along the cheeks and may extend to the temples, forehead, nose, and chin. In 2016, it was all about contour and highlighter. In the past few years, we have seen a shift in the amount of everyday people and content creators who use blush.”

Here’s what to add to your Subtl on-the-go makeup Stak to achieve the wind-burnt blush trend:

Try Cool Tones With Your On-The-Go Makeup Kit

If the pumpkin spice makeup trend mentioned above isn’t your style, then try cool tones this winter. Another big trend on TikTok, cool-tone makeup focuses on muted hues like grey, purple, blue, and natural brown. This look was huge throughout the 80s and even the 90s but rose to popularity again when Alexa Demie and Barbie Ferreira rocked the look on HBO’s Euphoria

"I would love for the cool tones to have a moment this winter," says professional makeup artist Alexandra French. “You can try it with a wash of a gray eyeshadow on your lids, or a grayish-brown lip liner.” If you need more inspiration to achieve this look, try watching Wednesday as Jenna Ortega went viral last year for her cool-tone makeup looks in the show.

Here’s what to add to your Subtl on-the-go makeup Stak to achieve the cool-tone trend:

Try Lip Balm With Your On-The-Go Makeup Kit

Make it a habit to keep lip balm in your on-the-go makeup kit. "Lips are prone to dryness and chapping during winter as they have a low capacity of retaining water and a weak skin barrier," explains dermatologist Elaine Kung, MD. The unsung hero of every pocket, purse, and Stak, lip balm keeps your lips ultra-nourished and soft, no matter where in the world you’re facing winter.

It’s also worth mentioning that traveling can also contribute to dry lips. But why do jet-setting and globetrotting lead to this lip issue? Let's spill the travel tea on why your lips might feel drier than the Sahara when you're on the move: Factors such as destination altitude, dehydration, climate shock, and the notoriously dry environment of airplane cabins all play a role. Interesting, right?

Here’s what to add to your Subtl on-the-go makeup Stak to keep your lips nourished this winter:
