Four Key Makeup Trends Happening Now!
Trend #1 – 1960’s Eyelashes:
This retro look evokes the famous British model, Twiggy, who made bottom-heavy flutter eyelashes all the rage. To get this look, apply a few coats of black, long-lash mascara to bottom lashes. Once the eyelashes appear long and black, evenly separate them into small clusters, using an eyelash brush or comb. For step by step instructions on how to achieve the Twiggy look – we love this blog from by Melissa J. Bell, Demand Media.
Metallic accents continue to trend in 2014 – from nail polish to eye colors, shimmery makeup is for everyone this year. Go right for the mega-shine with bold metallic colors, or brush eyelids with a rose gold eye shadow and apply a gold bronze to the outer corners of the lids for a more, reserved, golden look. For this softer look, try Bobbi Brown’s Metallic Eye Shadow.
Trend #3 – Minimalism
For those who love to accentuate their natural beauty, there is nothing like neutral tones and the healthy glow of minimal makeup. If over-the-top metallic colors or exaggerated eyelashes are not your thing, then the minimal look is just for you. Simply use a little primer followed by a light-reflecting foundation and eyebrow gel for a natural look that lasts all day.
Trend #4 – Stained Lips
The dramatic, sultry, look of wine-kissed lips is one of the biggest trends this year and is an instant way to update your look. Look for vibrant colors with a flat finish for lasting wear. Products like HOURGLASS Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick deliver a richly pigmented and silky smooth matte lip color that provides 14 hours of continuous wear without flaking or dryness.
