2017 is winding down, which means it’s time to start looking to the future, especially when it comes to next year’s hot fashion trends. I could talk endlessly about the amazing apparel and footwear innovations that are going to be big in 2018, but right now, I want to talk about a different aspect of fashion: makeup. It can be a person’s most noticeable and iconic accessory. Personally, I prefer a more natural look, but I love following what’s new in the world of makeup. Here are 7 makeup looks that will definitely trend next year!
Brushed Up Brows
Thick, blocky brows are out. 2018 is going to be the year of clean, feathery, and brushed up brows.
Models at fashion shows around the world have been making a splash with this new makeup trend: eyeliner that’s rounded at the ends instead of the usual sharp cat-eye flick.
Pink Eye Makeup
It’s predicted that the smoky pink makeup seen in late 2017 will only grow in popularity. If you haven’t tried this look yet, give it a shot. It’s here to stay!
Colorful Lined Eyes
Eyeliner will get a vibrant makeover in the new year. All around the world, people are swapping out their usual black or brown eyeliner for bright, bold new colors, such as aqua, teal, and lime green. Make a splash by trying a prismatic new liner.
Gloss eyeshadow is making a name for itself. It stands out in a wave of experimental and playful new looks that you should add to the top of your try-out list for 2018.
Selena Gomez and Gigi Hadid have been seen sporting this new trend. Cat-eye flicks are being replaced with “pinky” or “thumbprint” eyeliner, which is a rounded smudge of liner at the end of your lid that looks like it was dabbed on with a finger. Several catwalks sported this look in 2017, and it’s expected to go viral in the coming year.
Unique Lip Colors
While classic red lipstick isn’t going anywhere, new colors having been making their debut in the lipstick aisle. Gray, purple, and navy lip color are trending and are perfect for creating cool winter looks.
All in all, it looks like cat-eye liner is out, and new colors and styles—from dots to smudges—are in! Say goodbyes to flicks and try one of these new trending looks.
