The more things change, the more they stay the same – and that phrase rings true in a major way when talking about this year’s beauty trends. So to make sure you’re primed and ready, we have our favorite hair and makeup trends perfect for both right now and the warmer months ahead. With such a crazy range of looks, we’re sure you’ll find at least one that will tickle your fancy.
Classic red is back in a big way, but it looks much cooler against bare skin. Red lipstick is classic, of course, but never have makeup artists been so united on the shade front as they were this season. The color to know: Snow White apple red—as true as it gets.
Bright eye shadow is making a major comeback this season. And one of the biggest color trends? Any time a non-neutral pops up in a major way, the inevitable first question is: How do I wear it? The answer, when it comes to blue eye makeup, is any way you want. Go smoky with sparkly navy, draw a heavy line across your lids and for days when you want “a little bit of chaos” (and a lot of attention)
Mascara, on the whole, has been non-existent backstage for the last couple of seasons. Ask makeup artists why and most will tell you that it’s simply become too expected, too boring. It’s good news if you’re looking to shave time off your morning routine, but if you love a lash moment (and we do), there were some big ones at the shows that bucked the trend.
Glossy Black-Cherry Lips
Black-cherry lipstick is sexy. Black-cherry lipstick covered in latex-like shine is sexy and bad ass and a little bit naughty (in a good way). The only tricky part is getting this glossy look to stay in place. To ensure staying power, start by lining and filling in your lips with a deep wine-colored pencil
Pinks and peaches are usually reserved for lips, but spring is seeing them on the lids, where they’re just as soft and pretty, but with an added element of surprise. Pink is the most flattering on all the girls.
Get ready for these new trends. Don’t ignore it. Or worse, be the last to try it.
