Winter is finally about to end and in addition to the wonderful weather that spring brings, there are also some very fun new makeup trends that spring of 2020 is bringing to us. For those who just love wearing makeup and trying new trends, there is a lot to be excited about as 2020 is looking to be very colorful, fun, artsy and bold. Let’s take a look at these exciting new trends!
We all know and love the smokey eye, but in 2020, the smokey eye is getting an enhancement. The matte smokey eye is out and what is in is a glittery smokey eye. Brandon Maxwell’s spring 2020 show is all about the glittery smokey eye. To get this look, you simply swipe on a primer to make sure the eye shadow stays in place and then put on a shimmery or sparkly shadow on top. You can use any color to achieve this effect, but silver is going to be a very popular choice.
In addition to the glittery eye, body glitter is also making a comeback this year. There are many products available, such as sparkly oils and powdered highlighters that are all designed to use on specific parts of the body. Body glitter can be used on the face, shoulders and decolletage. In order to err on the classy side, it is recommended that you use a product with extra-fine particles.
Pastels are going to be another big hit this year, and this is going to build on the explosion of color that we saw last year. There are many makeup brands that are releasing palettes in colors that remind us of Easter and are a perfect fit for spring. Going along with the theme of color, the Pantone color of the year often seems to have an effect on makeup trends, and the color for 2020 is Classic Blue. You can expect to see a lot of blue eye shadow and eye liner and this might be the perfect time for you to try something new and experiment with different shades of blue.
Neon cat eyes are another trend we can expect to see more of. Cat eyes are a makeup trend that many love, but the new take on it is to use neon colors to accentuate the look. To get this look, you will simply swap out your normal colored eyeliner for a bright neon-colored eyeliner, either liquid or a gel pencil. This look is very fresh and very fun.
If you have already perfected and experimented with neon cat eyes, you can move onto the other eyeliner trend of 2020, which is to use white eyeliner. This look is very fresh and fun and is a wonderful contrast to the classic black eyeliner look.
Red lips are always a classic and daring look and this year is all about it! In order to achieve the perfect red lips, you should first clean your lips with a lip scrub to get rid of any dry or dead skin and then put on a matte lipstick in your favorite shade of red.
There are so many exciting and fun makeup trends to try this year, but remember…makeup is all about individuality. So try the trends, or stick to what you know and love!
