25mm mink lashes *snoreeee*
Bold bushy brows, meh.
This 2020, we hope to see the beauty community creating and developing the wildest trends yet--ones that push us to truly enjoy makeup and all it has to offer. In the meantime we have put together a short list of trends we are excited see rise in new year.
1. Breathable skin
The skincare rise has paved way to this new trend. As makeup gurus have started paying better attention to skincare, we have seen an uptick in the “breathable” skin look. Try out this trend by using less foundation, or simply using concealer to spot correct, or a light sweep of foundation powder. The aim of this look, is to let you skin shine through—lets celebrate those birthmarks, freckles, and hyper-pigmentation spots! Everyone has them.
2. Blurred lips
Gone are the days of sharp lip liner obsessions. This new lip trend has been seen on countless runways. The blurred lip look is created by using bright red or soft pink lipstick, in the center of the lips—and effortlessly blurring outward. This look is best created with a lip tint or lipstick, and is the perfect final touch for a makeup ‘no-makeup’ look.
3. Colorful eyeliner
Some may say this trend vaguely resemble 80's makeup party look, but we like to think of this trend as the younger, cooler sister. Colored liner is the perfect go-to for a youthful look, that steps away from the basic matte eye shadow. This look can be recreated by using a colored liquid liner, or any colored eye shadow and a thin angled brush--along the base of the eye.
4. Natural lashes
Everything we’ve seen would seem to contradict this trend, Instagram has been buzzing with 25mm mink lashes, butterfly lashes, and the fluffy-iest lashes ever. But recently we have seen a rise in makeup artists opting for a more natural look, using a thickening or lengthening mascara. The goal is to get a clump free look, without compromising on volume and length. Try this look out, but using a fresh mascara wand, and taking time to pay attention to the defining each lash.
5. Floating eyeliner
Hooded, monolid, tapered eye lids rejoice—the floating liner trend, is one of the few eye makeup trends that works on everyone. This trend draws attention to the eyes, and allows for a sophisticated look with a hint of color. You can easily recreate this look using a thin brush and any colored eyeshadow
