Here are some of the best beauty trends that caught our attention in the past few months.
ashion and beauty trends are ever-evolving. Every season brings with it various trends, and beauty enthusiasts like to keep themselves updated with what is hot and what is not. Makeup trends take their cue from fashion, and the past few months saw the resurgence of Y2K beauty as witnessed on different fashion runways.
One thing is sure: makeup trends have totally changed the game, and now it is all about expression and experimentation – think bold lip colour and dramatic eyes along with natural and dewy skin. So, it won’t be wrong to say that we have seen an amalgamation of glowy skin with glam eyes and lips take over this year.
Let’s take a look at the best and most innovative beauty looks that have us totally obsessed…
Glistening dewy skin
Ethereal, dewy skin has been the rage for quite some time now and it seems like this trend is here to stay. Glistening skin with flushed cheeks gives off a subtle glow and youthful appeal. This makeup trend is timeless, and you can achieve radiant-looking skin using cream or liquid products. However, the key to getting a dewy glow depends on the kind of applicator you use. Beauty experts suggest using a fluffy, do-it-all brush to achieve that flawless, glowing skin.
Quirky, colourful lids
Earlier this year, we spotted some fun eye makeup on runways and red carpets. Yes, we are talking about bright, colourful eyeshadow. You can opt for jewel tones like bright pink or cobalt blue. It’s all about wowing with your eyes; after all, why settle for regular eye makeup when you can play with an exciting colour. You can achieve the look by applying a highly pigmented shadow to the inner corners of your eyes and extending the colour up to the beginning of your crease. If you aren’t bold enough to apply bright hues, you can go for washed-out pastels like taupe or purple.
Graphic cut eyeliner
More commonly known as the negative space eyeliner, this makeup trend has been quite popular, and we have been obsessed with it since forever. We love this trend because it is a great way to make your eyes pop. All you need to do is use your eye crease as a template to create a simple negative space eyeliner, no matter what colour you choose. You can opt for traditional black, a funky neon or even white. Start by applying a traditional winged liner using an eyeliner of your choice. Then connect a floating line out from the edge of your wings using your upper lid’s natural crease. Just extend the line a little across the width of your eye, and voila, you are all set to flaunt this trend.
Bolder, brighter lips
One trend that caught our fancy and our attention this year were the different variations of red. Hints of red on the eyes or nails are one way to add a pop of colour. However, there is nothing chicer than opting for a swipe of red on the lips. There is no denying that a red lip colour oozes confidence. In fact, statement lips have made a grand return, and strong red lips work for everyone. Be it matte or glossy, red lips continue to be timeless, and we are all for it.
