Today’s Hottest Makeup Trends
This year has been full of beauty hits and misses. Below you’ll find some of our favorite hits of today’s hottest makeup trends. You should be sure to give a few of them before the year comes to an end!
Many beauty experts are suggesting that the rise of the blush bomb is owed to the Netflix original series Stranger Things which takes place in the early 1980’s and somehow made this retro trend look fresher than ever. To rock this seriously blush look you should always prep the skin with a rich moisturizer to prevent the blush from making the skin look dry or flaky. Go ahead and apply your primer, concealer, and foundation as you normally would. Then use a brush to apply a cream blush across your cheekbones, upwards towards your eyes, and then over the entire upper eyelid. Finish the look by matching your lip color to the shade of blush you’ve just applied.
The vibrant red lip is back, ladies! Although a red lip has always been a classic it definitely fell off the style radar for a bit. The crimson color is now being worn in a range of shades and textures including everything from a velvety red-orange to an ultra-matte deep red. The one thing to remember when wearing a bold red lip is to keep the rest of your makeup very minimal.
No, this trend doesn’t involve adding clumps of blue glitter to your eyelids the way you did when you first dabbled with makeup! The glittered eye trend today involves applying a very fine glitter to the upper lids, adding just the slightest sparkle to your eyes. As long as the glitter is a neutral color and dusted on lightly, this trend can totally be worn during the day.
Quite the opposite of a bold red lip, baby lips are another one of today’s hottest makeup trends. Think of the baby lips trend as more of a pout; it’s a very natural look that also requires very little makeup other than the lip color itself. To get the baby lip look all you need is a lip liner that’s a few shades lighter than your natural lip. Softly line the lips, then draw the liner onto your lips from the center towards the liner, almost creating a feathering effect along the edges of the lips.
Oh yes, the no-makeup makeup look is back—and we still don’t hate it. This bare skin look is all about embracing your natural beauty. For those of you who want to wear this look but have skin concerns, we suggest following a skin care regimen that is targeted to your specific skin type. Remember that three of the best things that you can do for you for your skin are (1) wash your face each night before you go to sleep, (2) use moisturizer during the day and night, and (3) drink plenty of water. Further, if you simply aren’t comfortable with baring your skin for the bare skin look, apply a layer of tinted moisturizer and dust your cheeks ever-so-lightly with a pale blush.
