Isn’t the world awesome? So much crazyarse stuff goes down and you look at it and you’re like WHAAAAAT???
Here’s a few fantastic makeup trends that had me saying WHAAAAT??? but then I realised that there might be a bit of merit there.
Check out #glittertears and be prepared for a horror show to unfold. Warning: it’s very painful but you can’t avert your eyes. I know it’s intentionally done for fun and drama, but it’s still way wrong.
HOWEVER at the same time there are some beautiful moments of uber cool, ethereal sparkle (see below) amongst the whole #glittertears debacle. I mean who doesn’t love a little bit of well-placed glitter? Anyone? Very little makes me yearn to be in my twenties again but I look at these images and really want to be 20 years younger so I can wear subtle sexy glitter tears and go to Coachella with my suitcase of denim undies.
This is the ‘totally achievable’ beauty trend that is booting contouring and strobing back up where they came from. It’s described by BeautyCrew as “a makeup technique that revolves around fresh, natural-looking makeup that gently encourages subtle shape with a glow-from-within look” and The Beauty Counter says, “it’s all about highlighting fresh, bright skin for a diffused, natural look.”
Look I don’t get it. But I’m thinking that it’s maybe about creating a dewy glow. Which is awesome! I love a dewy glow and and it definitely is a look I aspire to every day (well at least on those days when I haven’t been woken up by kids or worked till 1am or have a hormonal breakout or a hangover or a coldsore from being run down…).
Do you remember the 1980s? I do because I was there. And I can tell you, blue eyeshadow was THE colour of the season (for about 5 years). Plus emerald green mascara. And a whole lot of other flourescent crimes against humanity.
And apparently brights have made a comeback.
Although it’s looking a lot more glam this time around (and let’s face it, that wouldn’t be hard). And there’s loads of ways to try out the trend with bright lippies or coloured lashes or a teensy bit of colourful eyeliner.
Give it a go! I will be, in fact I have just ordered a blue mascara from my makeup range Youngblood and I am going to give it a crack.
What about you, will you be trying out any of these makeup trends?
Electric blue mascara anyone?
