Hello, lovelies! How have you all been? Hope your week was as kickass as mine. Here’s your weekly reminder: Stay positive and keep doing your thang yo!
During my winter vacation (like not really), except for binge eating, I literally went into the runway world. It was food and runway shows all day, errday (My kinda Netflix and chill). Not just fashion but this time I jot down all the beauty trends that fascinated me and trust me when I tell you this, a new wave of trends will hit us this time. To keep you on the radar, I have taken out the best beauty trends straight from the runways of Milan to New York.
Eyeliner game is going to next level this time. This is the season of bold, bright and dramatic eyes. From inventive shapes to dual colored liner, the designers this time made sure to give you all the reasons to stand out from the crowd.
There were too many designs but the best two with which you can surely experiment are the dual colored liner and geometrical shaped liner.
This is the trend which comes with a breeze of fresh air. Black and thick eyeliner will stay our forever go to but bypassing the typical look for a dazzling, spunky and completely fresh look once in a while don’t hurt anyone. The look is easier to pull off than you believe, just pick up any two shades of eyeliner and apply one to your upper lid and the other to your lower. I have opted for black and teal color (you know it’s my current obsession if you follow me on Instagram). The trick here is to blend both of them properly. I have chosen the classic winged shape but there are dozens of styles that you can try, this look is just to start with.
Among all the beauty trends on my list, geometrical eyeliner seems to be the most fun and simple one. It just needs a unique spin from your side. Well, talking about mine, this time I wanted to not to follow the fail-safe side and went ahead with a rectangle shape. I started to draw the liner from the corner of my eye and took it a little far. Just like my wings, I set my rectangle bold. Although the style is a bit offbeat but it will surely fetch out the beauty fanatic in you.
Okay, if you are somewhat like me who doesn’t fancy about all the blending and work that goes behind those beautifully #eyemakeupgoals, then my friend, this is our year. Completely wearable, liner-free, fresh, easy and only requires a few products, sounds nothing less than a dream come true. Apply a bit of translucent powder to your lids before applying the eyeshadow for that silky and perfectly blended look.
I hope you all aren’t tired of the glitter yet because it’s ruling its way to 2018. Whether you want to stay subtle or go overboard with the trend, it’s time to get your sparkle on. As far as I remember after my eighth-grade dance performance, this is the time when I have applied glitter to my eyes. If it’s done right it can instantly add a dash of glam to your look. I used it as an excuse and went extra glittery. This was downright the way to get the perfect space buns look that I wanted to experiment with from ages. Also, extra extra glittery ft. my sequins top. I heart it!
The world didn’t go crazy for no reason when Rihanna dropped the golden highlighter from her Fenty Beauty range. There’s nothing to be shocked if girls out there want to wear shimmer all over their face. Sweep it across your eyelids, cheekbones, browbone and upper lips like me or just apply it over your eyes for the subtle feel. Everything you do is right as long as it is with the golden makeup.
If the sparkly and one shaded eyeshadow weren’t enough for you, then here’s another trend you can completely dig on. Though we did break up with all our glossy lippies during our high school, but it wasn’t permanent you guys! We are back again and this time much stronger because it isn’t just about the glossy lips now but glossy lids are a thing as well. Apply any shadow over your lid and tap I with a bit of gloss in it.
"Inspired by India, we wanted the girls to have a luminous glow with soft, sweaty lids," says makeup artist Mark Carrasquillo.
Do you need any other reason to try this trend out?
After blingy freckles, here comes the sparkly teardrop. The fresh and minimalistic look with a shiny and futuristic vibe is here to say as suggested by Jeremy Scott. I applied 3 crystals under each eye to achieve this look. Although I couldn’t completely give up on my wings, doesn’t mean you can’t too. Go ahead and experiment if you feel like.
Ruby lips never literally went off the fashion screen but it did take a backseat for a while but say no more because it is back with a bang. From classy mattes to glossy finishes, you will find each and everything drowned in ruby red. Well, not being a red lipstick person, I stick to my classic low and messy bun with big hoop earrings and a grey coat. From formal to cocktail parties to mid-day date, there’s nothing a dash of ruby red can’t handle.
