Berry tints have moved from the lips to the lids while neon and sorbet colours will be gracing faces and nails in summer.
"Right now on nails, we are seeing a lot of browns and greys which is just quite scary for the average person," Cosmo beauty editor, Leigh Campbell says.
"But if you wear it on your toes it's not so bad and you keep your nails quite pale ... a pale pinky-grey is kind of an easy way to pull it off."
Campbell also says deep reds and burgundy are gracing eye lids while lips are staying nude.
"We are seeing lots of berry colours on the lids this season instead of the lips," Campbell says.
"Lips are quite nude this winter, so it is kind of an opposite."
Shiny foundation and fake tan are out, while matte base is in.
"Foundation this winter is actually quite matte, it's not so shiny and dewy as it is in summer," Campbell says.
"This winter (is seeing) more of a velvety, powdery finish and not too much bronzer which is nice."
"You don't need to worry too much about the fake tan this winter, just keep it natural."
In summer, Campbell says, we will be seeing a lot of bright tones.
"Summer is pretty exciting, there is lots of neon and sorbet colours so that's on your lips, your eye lids and your nails," she says.
"Lots of brights, pastel but amped up a bit."
Australian fashion week, held in May, saw a lot of pale, blush-coloured garments so a contrast of bold nail polish or makeup is appropriate.
"It is kind of nice to have the pop on the face or on the nails with that kind of pale clothing," she says.
Her top skincare tip for any season is exfoliating.
"So many people ask me `what foundation can I use to get glowing skin?' It's not about the base you are putting on it is about your skin care first, so always exfoliate," she says.
"Winter or summer, that is how you are going to have glowing skin."
