The blush trend has been hot and heavy for a while and isn’t likely to fade anytime soon. Although blush has long been a favorite, placement is everything. The coming year is set to see a resurgence of a former favorite – the 70s trend. These blush drapes with lighter, diffused blushes lift the cheekbones, follow up to the temples, and give an editorial and monochromatic impression. For a seamless C-shape finish, you can even blend the blush with a blusher into the eyes.
Sparkles and shimmers galore! Glitter and embellishments such as rhinestones and precious stones have been the trend for a long time, and it’s still going strong. Embodying an eccentric sense of individuality, these embellishments are the perfect vices to elevate your look as they add a subtle touch of sparkle to any look. Avoid being exact with your stones or making each eye match the other perfectly.
Use them to make a solid statement that portrays your inner diva. You can use it around the eyes, as embellished freckles, or to contour your lips for a striking effect. You can combine them with bold black eyeliner. The gemstones give a stardust-like feel while remaining elegant and stylish.
Sensual Siren eyes
This winter, the siren eye will be prevalent with its cool, smoky eye touch. Every eye shape gets a seductive lift from siren eyes and half lashes without looking too contrived. For the ultimate glam effect, pair with fake freckles and glossy lips.
Frosted, glossy lips
After much experimentation with icy frosted eyes, it is suspected that the trend will be all about the lips with the 90s trends returning. The frosted glossy lip and iconic brown lip liner and balm look leave your lips with an enviably comfortable, lived-in feel. In addition to nourishing balms and heavy-duty lip glosses, plumping oils are the latest must-haves to provide intense moisture while teasing your pout with the slightest hint of color.
