With so many makeup trends constantly floating on and off of the “What’s Hot” makeup list, it can be hard to know where to start when trying to pull off the sexiest looks of all time. However, you’re search is now over because right here, you have the total and complete list of the 20 hottest makeup trends that have never left the haute list. So grab your brushes, ladies. You’re about to explore a world of perfectly flawless beauty.
Pretty Up Your Peepers
The eyes are most certainly the most crucial part to any makeup look you’re trying to achieve. If you can’t get the pop of your peepers, you might as well forget about the rest of your face because this is the place to pull the attention. Place the focus of your talent on prettying up your peepers with these hot makeup trends that are always in style for your eyes.
It seems that this trend is mentioned time and time again, and it’s truly because it’s always on the haute list. The smokey eye is the easiest and most classic way to create that sex appeal you desire. Plus, it’s highly ideal for a night out with the ladies. The easiest way to achieve this look is to first pick three colors of the same genre. For example; silver, grey, black. Place the lightest color (silver) all over your lid and halfway up to your brow. Brush the middle color (grey) in the crease and a bit above. Take the darkest color (black) and brush that into the corner of your eye like a triangle. Blend, blend, blend and finish the look with some smudged liner on the top and bottom, putting emphasis on the outer corners. Load on the lashes and you’ll be blowing out smoke in no time.
It’s time to add the meow into your look, ladies. The cat eyeliner trend is a total classic and it’s about time for you to indulge and treat yourself to a little sex kitten appeal. Start at your inner corner and keep your eyeliner close to your lash line. Allow it to get thicker as you reach the outer corner of your eye and finish it off with a sweep.
Variations of the Winged Liner
This makeup trend is fairly similar to the prior. In fact, it is the cat liner trend, only with a variety of different ways to do it. Some makeup trends for the winged out liner can be thick and short, while others are thin and dragged out. Some fill the whole lid, while others smudge the liner in. Play around with your talent to find a winged liner that fits your personality. The best thing is that no matter what you choose to fit you, it’s haute because all winged liners are always on the trending list.
Grab your colorful palettes because the sunset eye look is always one that is highly desirable. The neat thing about this eyeshadow trend is that you can truly play around with it to find all kinds of variations of it. For example, you may want a matte gold sunset one day, or a shimmering one the next. You get to decide what kind of sunshine you want to share within your eye makeup.
You can’t ever go wrong when you know how to pull off a makeup look that is a total show stopper. This trend does exactly what it says. It will have people left there with their jaws on the ground, astonished by your complete beauty. Show stopper lids are totally bold and often indulge with the dark tones of your favorite palette. However, you can certainly pull off a show stopper appearance with the colors of your choice. Sparkle and shine your way to a show stopper look.
Black and Bold Peepers
This look is very similar to the previous trend mentioned, however it’s a little more edgier. The grunge trend is one that is certainly amongst the most daring makeup looks as it can be hard to keep it chic and neat. If you’re unsure, blend your blacks to blur the edginess but if you’re ready to take a walk on the wild side, create a fine line of black contrast with a stunning liner and sharp shadow.
Glitz and Glam
Sparkles of silvers and gray hues are totally a hit on the haute makeup trends that last throughout season to season. Fan your shimmering shadows out in a winged motion as you would if you were to be creating a cat liner look, and add a stunningly bold contrast of black liner to get the Hollywood glitz and glam of this haute look. Of course, top the look off with stunning lashes or a set of full faux ones and you’re red carpet ready.
Va Va Voom Lashes
Go big or go home, ladies. That’s always been the trend for lashes and its certainly not about to change now. Keep your lashes bold and black to create the stunning definition of your look. As a little insider tip, sweep your mascara brush up in the middle, and more outwards on the sides to achieve a thoroughly full eye.
Pull out your metallics, and browns that sparkle because shimmering brown lids are always a highly desirable look. It gives you that sex kitten look without the kitten part. Think more of a big cat appeal because the trending bronze shadows give a cheetah roar instead of a kitty kat meow. Sweet a shimmering brown shadow across your lids, and add some darker tones in the crease for definition and voila.
This is definitely one of the easiest makeup trends to pull off, as well as one of the simplest in appearance but do not underestimate its power. Adding a touch of sparkle to the inner corner of your eyes will provide an amazing spark to whatever shadow trend you’re rocking. Add a dab of silver, or sparkling white to the inner corner and drag it along both top and bottom lashes until it reaches the rest of your makeup look. The stunning shimmer will complete any look you’re trying to pull off.
Stop over tweezing and plucking those strands out because bold brows are back. Shading those bad boys in can be the easiest way to pull off the bold brow trend. However, be sure to still maintain those brows because out-of-whack strands, no matter how bold the trend may be, will never be haute. Let your brows grow out, but be sure to trim them up when needed. Brow mascara could be your lifesaver if your eyebrows tend to have a personality of their own.
Although your lips are only one part of your face, just like your eyes, they should not be underestimated. These are the sultry parts of your face that should be accentuated to complete all the adored looks you desire. Make sure to keep those lickable lips luscious with a stunning gloss and any of these following lip makeup trends.
Shades of the Red Carpet
The red lip is a total classic and will never go out of season. However, you truly have a wide range of options when it comes to which tone you want to rock because all shades are absolutely haute. Deep blood, rouge and maroons, and ruby reds are only a few of the amazing colors you can indulge in.
Lust worthy lips are all about getting those pink Barbie lipsticks out and blotting those bad boys along your smoochers. Have some fun and indulge in pops of pinks that you wouldn’t have tried before reading this post. Go loud and luscious with a neon rich fuschia, or keep it bold and bashful with bubblegum pinks.
The latest lip trend is a combination of all the tones every lady loves to rock. The trick is to blend the colors perfectly across the lips to ensure that you look rock-star ready and not like a hot mess. Using a lip brush to blend the colors together should really be all you need to do just that though.
Complete With a Flawless Face
If you’re face isn’t perfect, then nothing else will resemble that either. Complete a total face makeup transformation with these trending ways to create a flawless face.
Those fun multicolored blush compacts are more than just fun for you to look at. They’re actually meant to provide a gentle mixture and combination to your face that will bring out your natural features. Who knew that the pretty image within the compact was meant to be mixed and matched together.
Classic Pin Up
If there is ever the word “classic” associated with a makeup trend, you know that you can never go wrong. The classic pin up look is one to be adored as it’s been the go-to makeup trend for centuries. Everyone from Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Britney Spears and Kim Kardashian have rocked this makeup look in their era, and there’s no need to stop it’s trendiness anytime soon. Keep your eyelids basic with a nude shadow and a slightly winged liner on the top lash. Add a big emphasis on the lashes… Faux are always a go, and get those lips bold with a blast of red.
If you have yet to achieve that sun kissed look, there’s no need for you to worry because the barely bronzed makeup trend can be pulled off with a simple brush of blush, and the sweep of a shadow. Gone are the days of caking on the sparkling shimmer of bronzers. (Those days really never existed. Let’s be honest here.) Keep your bronzer indulgences to a minimum and sweep a sweet metallic over your lids and sculpt your cheekbones with a swift skim of your favorite bronzer. Keep the lashes slender and lack of liner and you’ll be looking effortlessly beautiful with the barely bronzed makeup look.
Sometimes less is more and the neutral look is always a makeup trend you should know how to do because it’s perfect for those days where you want to look great, without the appearance of a caked-on look. Keep all of your shadow choices neutrals such as light browns, nudes, beige’s, creams. You can even decide to leave the liner in your makeup bag if you want, and simply sweep a few layers of mascara on. Complete the nearly nude look with a swift sweep of rose blush across the cheekbones and top the look off with a pastel nude-pink on the lips.
Channel your inner kindergarten and get creative because the hottest makeup trend is all about not being afraid of colors. There are one too many tutorials and makeup trends out there that keep the look safe and neutral. What about all the ladies that have some individuality? This ones for you! Pick out the colors of the rainbow and get happy. Neon shadows, colorful liners and color blasted lips are super trendy this season. Be sure to only indulge in one trend at a time or you may resemble a clown instead of a Barbie.
The Innocent Girl
The cutesy look is definitely one that all ladies should be able to pull off. You just never know when you’ll need to channel your inner angelic side. Keep your shadows peachy, and the same for your cheeky (Had to!), and the lips the same as well, only with a little more simmer. You’ll be hiding the devil on your shoulder and embracing the angel on the other in no time… All with a change in your facial makeup. Who knew?
