Kay Beauty Matte Blush

We all love blush, I mean, come on, who can resist the charm of that fresh, flushed look? This beauty product is going to be stealing spotlights this year, and for good reason. In the past year, we’ve been served with some beautiful blush moments through the cold girl makeup trend phase, sunburn blush technique and much more. All of that (and more) has brought us to the conclusion that blush is back in focus, and bolder than ever.

Less is More

Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind

Loved the no-makeup makeup look? Then you’ll love this one too! Minimal makeup is having a moment, or should we say it’s owning the year. A barely-there makeup look will continue to reign supreme this year — think healthy looking skin, a natural looking flush and fluffy brows. This look can carefully be crafted with skin tints, bb creams and lightweight skin formulas.

Sharp Eyeliners

SUGAR Kohl Of Honour Intense Kajal

While the smudge-y, smokey eye look may be getting all the attention, it’s time to shift the focus to something crisper and sharper. We’re talking elongated cat-eyes, recreating the siren eyes trend, and just elongating the regular winged eyeliner to give your look an eye-conic lift. Dark, bold eyeliners are sure to make heads turn, and we recommend you try it too if you want to do the same. P.S. always try pulling the eyeliner upward and outward for a more snatched look.

Metallic Mood

Nykaa Mirror Chrome Nail Lacquer

High-shine, glossy, and super shiny, metallic is the way to go this season. Be it classic golds, shimmery silvers, or beautiful coppers and bronze, this trend is going to add an aesthetic oomph to your look. Whether it’s your eyelids or nails, lips or highlighter, this metallic beauty trend will not disappoint. Load up on everything metallic to achieve an ethereal glow and channel some major Y2K energy.

Go Grunge

Mamaearth Moisture Matte Longstay

Miss Claire Goth Chrome Eyeshadow

Jenna Ortega as Wednesday Addams single-handedly brought the goth-glam makeup trend back to life. The ‘Avril Lavigne’ makeup is now reigning supreme again and we are all for it! The resurgence of this trend comes with a generous serving of faux freckles, smudged eyeliner, and darker lip shades. The secret to achieve this lies in shades of black and plum. It’s dark, moody, and mysterious. Time to cosplay as Wednesday?

Seamlessly Smooth

Nudestix Tinted Blur Sculpt Stick

Underpainting has been all the rage since Hailey Bieber, JLo, and other celebrities makeup artists revealed that this technique is their secret to acing the base. But here’s the real question, what is underpainting? Simply put, it’s doing your makeup in reverse. It means blending out the contour and under eye concealer first, then going in with foundation and the other steps. The result? A perfectly blended base with no harsh lines and fresh-looking skin.
