4 Ways You Can Rock the Latest Makeup Trends
A few notable trends stand out among all the makeup looks being displayed at fashion shows around the globe. The most eye-opening looks incorporate classic elements and can be recreated easily at home. Experiment with them to make a statement, or tone them down to make them your own with a subtle change in your everyday appearance. Either way, you can’t lose.
Ever since Pantone named Tangerine Tango its 2012 Color of the Year, shades of orange have dominated makeup counters and been a staple in the kits of runway models creating a chic look with a retro touch. This won’t change anytime soon. To make this look your own without remaking your beauty routine, try swapping matte orange lipstick for your usual shade of red. If you prefer a more muted hue, try coral lipstick or gloss.
Shade your eyes in vibrant blue
Many designers feature rich blues with shimmery finishes in their current collections. To match the look, swipe blue eye shadow over your eyelids. Framing your eyes in blue pencil or liquid eyeliner can also work. When using such bold colors, keep the rest of your eye makeup minimal and apply a soft lip color to avoid looking overly made up.
Matte foundations have been the preferred look in recent years, but healthy, glowing skin is currently back in style. Try to avoid looking shiny, though. When getting made up for a casual outing, try applying a mixture of fine highlighting liquid and tinted moisturizer, then putting on white, shimmery eye shadow and eyeliner. If you prefer, you can just highlight specific areas of your face, such as your cheeks and forehead.
Reinvent the cat eye
You see cat eyes on runways everywhere, but this stunning makeup effect has been reimagined. The new trick is to draw a thicker wing and a thinner line along the lash. This is a bold style that’s ideal for special occasions and nights out on the town.
