Reading about new makeup trends might overwhelm those unassuming individuals who are simply into their mascaras and glosses. But the world of makeup is chock full of delicious items and products that may seem overwhelming at first but are actually quite easy and simple to use. Micro makeup trends are cropping up left right and centre but we are here to help you narrow it down to the trends and products that are actually worth investing in. After various consultations and some major research here below are the four major makeup trends to focus on. But don’t let us hold you down… the sky’s the limit…
1 ||Bushy Natural Brows
We’ve recently talked about the new brow shape at length. Gone are the days of the ultra-defined Instagram eyebrow; natural-looking, feathered and brushed-up eyebrows are all the rage right now. Hence the need to invest in products that can help you achieve that look. To get that look you must brush up your eyebrows, and fill them out with a fine-tipped pencil using short strokes that look like actual hairs. You can also use a tinted brow gel to get the density you are looking for. Otherwise if you’re content with the texture then you just have to use a clear brow gel to keep your brushed-up brows in place.
2 || Striking Eyes
Bright eye makeup is having a major moment this year. This is where you can let your wild side out. Experiment in colourful eyeshadows and liners, think winged liner in teal or a splash of unblended orange shadow all over the lid. To simplify, just apply a fun color eye shadow stick to your lash line and blend upwards using your fingers.
3 || Glossy Skin
Glazed luminous skin is taking over from matte skin right now. IF you find yourself getting overwhelmed with the new genre of beauty items such as face glosses, cream highlighters, and dewy foundations, I wouldn’t blame you.Yet it is quite simple actually, all you have to do is to mattify your t-zone and use your liquid highlighters just like you would use your powder highlighter, on the high points of your face. Invest in pearly primers, liquid highlighters or creamy stick highlighters, and dewy foundations. Check out my article below on how best to achieve luminous glossy skin.
4 || Glassy Lips
Clear gloss is backkkkkkkkk! There was a time when I thought that nothing could topple the reign of liquid lipsticks but I guess I was mistaken; everything in life comes with an expiry date. These days you can go back to wearing clear gloss all by itself and don’t worry about going over the upper edges of your lips a little. You can also layer clear gloss on top of any sheer lipstick for a glazed stained look or you can opt for lip maximising tinted glosses.
