A fresh year calls for new beginnings—new beginnings in terms of makeup as well. 2018 is just around the corner, and so are a number of new trends in the world of makeup. 2017 saw greatmakeup trends like black lipstick, glitter freckles, and floating creases. The coming year is going to be the year of glitter, a whole lot of stark-black eye makeup, and glitz. These trends have recently been seen on the runway for the spring fashion shows, and have also been spotted on Instagram. If you’re looking to know more about the makeup trend forecast for 2018, you’ve come to the right place.
1. Black eyeliner
Stark-black eyeliner is set to steal the show in 2018. Thick lines of black eyeliner around both, the top and bottom lash lines were seen on the models at the Marc Jacobs, and a couple of other runway shows. This look is nothing short of dramatic, and looks like it’s going to dominate the new year.
2. Golden glitter
Glitter is going to make a comeback in 2018, and we couldn’t be more excited! Glitter, especially golden glitter, has been a recent favourite on the runway. When Rihanna launched pure-gold highlighter, this trend took the beauty world by storm, and we saw beauty bloggers, editors, and dozens of celebrities rock makeup trend. Still a big hit, golden glittery makeup doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere, and is all set to become a huge trend in 2018.
We aren’t talking about Rhinestone on your clothes—we’re referring to rhinestones used as makeup. Rhinestones, a 2000’s favourite, has suddenly resurfaced, and is a hot trend in the world of makeup. Besides rhinestones, models on the runway are being seen with sequins, and other sparkly stuff glued to their eyelids with lash glue.
4. Inner Circles
In the past, us, as well as renowned makeup artists, would opt for nude shades to brighten up in the corners of our eyes. However, this doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. To add a pop of colour to the eyes, makeup artists have decided to add coloured pigment to the inner corners of the eyes. Colours like pink, baby blue, or even yellow, have proven to be great highlighters. It’s the simple, yet effective nature of this look that’ll make it a hit in 2018.
5. Glowing, dewy skin
Like we said before, 2018 looks like it’s going to be the year of shine. Lately, extra-highlighted skin has been doing rounds in the makeup universe—even Kareena Kapoor Khan was seen donning this ethereal look at the very recentlux goldenrise awards. Although really shiny, this magical look is one of our favourites.
6. Metallic lips
Shiny lips, that almost look metallic, are going to be a huge trend in 2018. This look doesn’t call for a special lipstick, though. It can be achieved by wearing your favourite shade of lipstick, and then applying some glitter over it for some extra shine.
