MAKEUP THAT POPS!
In today’s selfie driven world where standing out from the crowd is more important than ever, fortune favors the bold! And for those of you bold enough to make a statement with a signature look that pops? You’ll surely have heads turning and all eyes on you! So, get bold and get noticed with some of these hot makeup trends that do more than pop. They explode with style!
Eye of the tiger – Straight from the decade that made the song famous, circa 1980’s, bright colors are back! Sultry stares from brightly shadowed violet lids or smoky gray shadow combined with bright blue eye shadow are popping up everywhere and we love it!
Doing dewy and doing it well –Dewy, glowing skin is in! How do you “dew” it? Simple! Put down the matte finish and dry powder in favor of a good moisturizer or serum before applying foundation. And exfoliate once or twice a week to keep skin smooth and fresh looking!
Glossing it over – Speaking of dewy skin, pair your glow with high gloss – on your lips. Shimmery, shiny lip gloss is the perfect accessory to complete your eye-poppin look!
And if you’re feeling extra sassy, don’t be afraid to be even bolder with a bright cherry red or hot pink color under your gloss.
Get cornered – Applying a bit of color to the inner corners of your eyes is technique used by makeup artists to achieve a more wide-eyed, refreshed look. Adding color with some glitter or shine adds even more pop!
Make mine metallic – Metallic shades of silver, gold and rose-gold have all seen their ways to eye shadow, liner and even bronzer. Metallic lipstick is even more hot and can be part of your cool, futuristic look or hot, edgy rocker vibe. And it won’t leave you with the glitter litter that came from the glitter lipsticks of last year.
Upside down is right on – Continuing on from 2017, upside-down liner is still making an appearance on eyes everywhere in 2018. Applying your favorite shade to your bottom lash-line is an easy and fast way to make your eyes pop even more! Choose a color that works well with your skin tone and get your stare on.
Whether you’re trying to perfect a look that pops for the perfect selfie or for Saturday date night, be bold and have some fun with it. After all, the beauty of a beautiful new look is that it can be taken on and off whenever you choose for an even newer one. Are you a fan of creating signature looks and have a real talent for it?
