It’s 2018, time for a fresh new EVERYTHING! The year stands before us in all its glorious potential! I, for one, cannot wait to grab hold of everything that 2018 will have to offer! Including a fabulous set of new makeup trends that are RIGHT up my alley! It’s going to be a beautiful year!
I don’t know how anyone could be sick of glitter, when it’s on trend or not! So, all you glitter and glitz fans out there, 2018 is glittering on! Gold highlighter, glittery glosses, rhinestones, gems, and sequins are the new way to wear the sparkly stuff, adhered on your eyelids and around your eyes using lash glue.
As if sparkly embellishment and golden highlighter are still not enough, another massive makeup moment in 2018 will be the rise of ultra-highlighted skin. The glowier, the better.
Spiky, retro clumpy lashes have also made a comeback. Not quite as dramatic as the spider-like lashes of the ‘50’s and ‘60’s – the modern twist DOES require layers of mascara and a few well-placed lashes.
And as for lips, glossy, glowing and either beautifully ‘nude’ or proudly popping with statement colour!
Here are just SOME of the products that will help make your 2018 makeup look super-gorgeous, and super trendy!
Tarte Tarteist™ PRO Glow Highlight & Contour Palette
Ever had a bit of ‘complexion-envy’ when you see a model, actress or girl-next-door with that almost ethereal radiance and glow emanating from her skin? Envy no more and grab the BEST complexion-enhancing highlighter product of 2018! Tarte Tarteist™ PRO Glow Highlight & Contour Palette helps you glow on-the-go using healthy ingredients. Designed to work on every skin tone, the shades have rich, cool undertones to mimic real shadow and light reflection for the most natural look. Each of the four intense highlighters g deliver a buildable, micro shimmer strobe while the universal matte contouring powder adds a balancing dimension powered by longwearing Amazonian clay for fade-free payoff. The palette includes Lit (champagne highlight), Strobe (pearl highlight), Fire (bronze highlight), Stunner (opalescent highlight), a powder contour in sculpt and cream contour in shade.
For those utterly adorable, un-ignorable statement lips we mentioned earlier, I recommend Burberry Burberry Kisses Gloss Wet Shine Moisturising Gloss. The high-impact gloss creates a hydrating veil of intense color and a mirror-like shine finish. Its comfortable, non-sticky formula glides across lips, creating a ripe, fuller-looking pout with a wet look, lasting shine and hydration and buildable color for differing occasions. There are loads of gorgeous colors but my choices are Poppy Red, Antique Rose and Cameo Nude.
The one-step, easy solution to those majorly spiky lashes, is LANCÔME Grandiôse Smudgeproof Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara. What makes this mascara different is that for the 1st time in LANCÔME history this patent-pending “Swan-Neck™” wand and high-precision brush can grab lashes close to the roots to perfectly fan them out, corner to corner to create perfectly open, full and even lashes. Starting with the first stroke, lashes are coated from root to tip. Adapted to suit different eye shapes, this mascara creates a spectacular wide-angle fan effect. An innovative formula enriched with LANCÔME’s exclusive Native Rose-Cell Extract™ creates captivating eyes that are simply grandiose. My grab was for both the violet black and sapphire blue shades for a dramatic party look.
And the look that NEVER goes off-trend? Perfect, youthful, flawless skin. Enter, SK-II Signs Perfect Radiance Liquid Foundation creates a silky finish, smoothing fines lines and wrinkles. Enriched with an anti-wrinkle substance, NAG (N-Acetyl Glucosamine), which enhancesthe elasticity and resilience of the skin and thus reduces the appearance of wrinkles. Perfect translucency and radiance? All yours in 2018!
Another fab trend for 2018 is making your own beauty solutions and using natural ingredients for your beauty routine. Stay tuned to hear all about a beauty staple that can be used for ANYTHING – coconut oil!
