With each new year comes new beauty trends, and we’ve put together some tips for how you can achieve this year’s hottest looks. And plus, it gives you a great excuse to buy some new makeup products!
- Glossy lids
Glossy lids have been all over the runways and social media. We love how it completes a dewy look and gives you a fresh, natural finish. To achieve a glossy lid, you can buy some eye gloss, but lip gloss works just as well! Just sweep some over your lid with a fingertip or brush, alone or over eyeshadow.
- Pastel eyes – shadow and liner
Pastels are all the rage right now, from fashion to beauty. We’re loving pairing a glossy lip with a pastel eye. And you’re not just limited to eyeshadow. Try out a pastel eyeliner to refresh your makeup game. Pro tip: use white as a base to really make your pastel look pop, especially on deeper skin tones.
- Fluffy brows
Forget thin, 2000’s-style brows, bushy brows are back. With the trend of brow lamination taking the world of social media by storm, fluffy, natural-looking brows are oh-so on-trend. So leave your brows to grow and fluff em up with a brow wax, or soap. We recommend filling in any sparse areas with super-thin, hair-like strokes to keep your look natural but full.
- Neon makeup
While pastels are on-trend right now, it doesn’t mean the neon beauty craze is going anywhere. Moving from full-frontal, in-your-face neon looks, we’re seeing a growing trend of using neon accents to add a pop of colour to your look. Try a pop of neon eyeshadow in the inner corners of your eye, or try neon eyeliner.
- Floating eyeliner
A great way to jazz up your look is with this year’s latest eyeliner trend: floating eyeliner. Rather than drawing your eyeliner as close to your lash line as possible, try to bring it up, while following the shape of your eye up to your crease. This is so you can still see the line when you move your eyes, especially if you have hooded lids. Get creative with colours – you could even mix two for an ombre look.
- Watercolour eyes
Say goodbye to super-precise eyeshadow application in 2020. While you may have mastered the art of the cut crease last year, now we’re getting messy with it. Watercolour eyes are the newest craze, and you can achieve this artistic look with ease. It’s all about soft colour and diffused edges – so get blending. Don’t be afraid to bring the colour out further than you would usually, reaching right up to the brows and down onto the cheekbones.
- Dramatic blush
The last makeup tip of 2020 is the dramatic blush. Blush has made an unprecedented comeback in the world of makeup, with a natural flush perfect for balancing out even the most glam of looks, or adding a pop of colour to a neutral, natural look. Blush is truly a universal product that looks amazing on all skin tones. So whether you’re a cream or powder kind of gal, grab that blush and be generous with your application.
