It usually happens, trends come and go. Sometimes, they come back, and go again. You never really know when something is going to come back in style. Remember your mom’s old bell bottoms? I do. The same goes for Makeup Trends. There are some that have come back, some that we miss and some that we can’t WAIT to use again.
Makeup Trends Making a Comeback
Matte lips have been the “it” look for a while now, with every major makeup brand jumping on the trend. After every drought the rain eventually falls though, and this return to moisture has me rejoicing to the heavens. Dig into that old handbag, pull out your favourite lip gloss and once again enjoy a day without dry lips.
You’ll start seeing everything from a subtle deep burgundy to a full rainbow range of colours on shelves again. This trend is easiest to adopt by applying the mascara to the bottom lashes only to give yourself a cheeky pop of color. Have fun with this trend now, it was short lived the first time around in the early 2000’s and I don’t foresee it hanging around for too long this go around either.
It was huge in the 90’s. Brown lipliner paired with a light pink lipstick. This classic look has not returned in its original glory, thankfully, but what we are seeing is the upper lip in one tone and the bottom lip in another. Best to use lip stains if you are going to attempt this look to insure the colours don’t bleed together.
No Makeup makeup!
The “Instagram Makeup” look has reached its tipping point and frankly we are sick of it. Too many steps, too many products and the results are just altogether too much. The reply is a return to the “No Makeup” makeup. Fresh, clean skin and minimal color that simply enhances natural beauty.
80’s Pink Everywhere
If trend setter Rihanna’s MET Gala look was any indication of things to come, this 80’s look is gearing up for a serious comeback. The key is to using the same color on your cheeks and eyes and a slightly deeper tone on your lips.
