Glossy Lips

While a matte lip is gorgeous, impenetrable, and capable of resisting even the greasiest of food, it is officially time to put them aside. The liquid lipstick has had some ground-breaking success in recent years since it first launched and all for the right reasons. They are long-lasting, reliable, and hassle free because you don’t have to constantly worry about reapplying it wherever you go. However, they can get quite boring and monotonous. Glossy lips, although require constant attention; happen to look gorgeous on the lips. They add a very luscious and full effect to the lips that is extremely flattering on all lip shapes giving them shape and dimension.

This year was all about embracing our flaws and allowing our skin to not suffocate under a blanket of products that conceal its radiance. Breathable makeup focuses on healthy and radiant skin that is fresh and glowing. Put aside your full coverage foundations and concealers. Instead opt for sheer coverage and maybe a counteracting bold lip or eye to tie the whole look together.

Dimensional Lips

After glitter lips broke the internet, this trend was a long time coming. While glitter lips are stunning to look at and look amazing enough in pictures to generate some interesting Instagram content, they are not the most practical. The whole idea is to create dimension in the lips using different textures and consistencies. Ombre lips and a simple dab of gloss over basic lipstick just right in the centre are the hot trend of the season.

Straight Stark Brows

The Instagram brows are out and natural, untamed, straight brows are the talk of the town. Fuller brows make you look more youthful and give your face more structure. Stick to simple brow gel and light pencils for filling in sparse areas and put away that pomade because natural brows are here to stay.

Time for a throwback to those emo days when the only thing we all seemed to enjoy on our eyes was stark black eyeliner. This new trend incorporates its own twist into the look by keeping it very versatile and quirky. Black eyeliner adds a grungy, smouldering and sultry feel and can up an extremely basic eye look to something extravagant in few seconds.

If you are a lazy girl who likes to keep it minimal, follows a very simple no fuss beauty routine, or just simply does not know much about makeup, and wants to stick to a limited number of products, then this is the look for you. Multitasking makeup is quick, on the go, and just very convenient. Pair up similar tones on the lips, eyes, and cheeks and you have yourself the perfect monochromatic look.

Pinks are the new neutrals. Move aside earthy brown because the rose tones are here to stay. What makes neutral colours even better is their ability to work well in every part of the face. Add a healthy flush of radiant colour to an otherwise boring face with a few swipes of blush and watch your face come alive.
