Like fashion, beauty trends come and go, with some that are totally awesome to some that I would rather pass on. Today’s Top Five are my favorite beauty trends, beauty trends that I would gladly try out and not feel foolish walking out of my house! I also think these trends are quite doable, even for the makeup newbie and give a great twist to your ordinary beauty routine!
Though you may think this beauty trend is a classic, it’s not just reserved for black and grey shadows anymore. Blues, Purples, and Golds are perfect colors to use for this look, each giving off it’s own vibe, yet screaming glam all the same! I went to Sephora and got a super cool blue smoky eye with one of their mini makeovers. I absolutely loved it!
The classic pin up girl look is totally sexy again. While the first trend plays up the eyes, the lips take center stage with this one. All you need is a neutral eyeshadow, a peachy blush, and bold red lipstick! The vintage glam hair also has a beauty blogger attention, with smooth, shiny pin curls or totally awesome fingerwaves.
Two Toned Eyeshadow
Rocking one color on your lids and another on your lower lash line may have seemed crazy before, but it’s totally hot now. If it’s done right you can add crazy drama to your eyes, perfect for a night out on the town. Just remember that ultra glam eyes call for a soft lip. You don’t want to overdo it!
I was a little unsure about this trend at first because I didn’t think it would work with someone with my skin color. I thought I would look washed out. However, when I tried it out, not only was I proven wrong, I really liked it! You also want to choose a color that not only is closest to your skin tone, but has a little shine to it too, giving your lips life even though they’re nude. My favorite lip gloss to use is Sweet Raisin and Bliss Bronze from Mary Kay.
Grey Nail Polish
I recently gave up my acrylic tips for colored nail polish and I’m having so much fun with it! One of the hottest colors this fall is grey and this was another trend I was kinda iffy about. However, I discovered a grey nail polish called Winter Whisper from Silly Paintz on a trip to Sally’s Beauty Supply that I absolutely love! Instead of the matte finish grey, it has a slight sparkle to it that I love! Granted, the quality isn’t the best (it chips way too easily) but I absolutely love the color and looking for a suitable replacement.
