New year, new makeup, new us! This year we are excited to see where the makeup trends go. 2017 got a little wild if you ask us. What with the squiggly eyebrows, nose hair extensions, and color contour. But creative nonetheless! Today, we have the inside scoop on what will be hot this year when it comes to glamming up. Here are our favorite nine makeup looks that we will be rocking all year long.
1. Mermaid Vibes
Us 90s kids are thrilled about the first look. Intense eyeshadow and eyeliner is back in! Choose an eyeshadow color that will make your eyes pop. Keep your face fresh and your lips moisturized so that your eyes will be the only focus. No one will be able to look away.
2. The Year of Holographics
Towards the end of 2017, you may have noticed that holographics was a major influence in the fashion industry. We don’t see holo stopping anytime soon. Holograph eyes, cheeks, and even lips! Don’t go too crazy though. Otherwise, you’ll look like a Lisa Frank character.
3. Shine Bright
Put away your powder and your blotting sheets. Having shine is finally fashionable! Using any type of gloss, face shine, or balm you can achieve this look. Apply your makeup as usual and set it with gloss. We love it!
4. Natural Brow
It looks like this year will be all about rocking your natural face. Which is fine by us, because that means more time to sleep in. When it comes to brows, leave them be. And we mean it. Blonde, dark, red, full, spare, bushy? Leave them. Let your brows do their thing while you do yours.
5. Skipping the Mascara
Like we said, the natural look is the look for 2018. Skip the mascara during your makeup routine. This will give your eyes a more child-like look. Wear blush to bring color to your face and make your eyes pop.
6. Twiggy Lashes
If you can’t live without mascara then embrace your inner Twiggy. Basically it looks like what all of our eyelashes looked like the first time we tried to put on mascara when we were kids. This technique adds more intensity to your eyes.
7. Show Some Skin!
Don’t hide behind foundation this year. Let your “perfect imperfections” show through! Freckles, blemishes, discoloration. No need to cover them up! We love this look the most.
8. Smoke & Flames
This smokey color is awesome because it works for any eye color and will make them pop. Keep your lips clean and free from color and let your eyes do the talking.
9. “Stay Golden Pony Boy”
Stock up on gold makeup because we want to see it everywhere. This look is traffic-stopping. We love how intense the color is and it’s simple and easy! Go for gold!
