We have always been rather fond of the saying ‘Out with the old, In With The New’ — especially when we are standing at the dawn of a fresh new year. With so many amazing and novel things to look forward (Think: New Year resolutions, cars that will drive themselves, world peace, non-dairy everything or just the sassy new season of Vanderpump Rules), we are simply not able to keep calm. However, one thing that tops the list and our beauty obsessed brains? It’s *drumroll* Spring cleaning our makeup essentials kit and getting a fresh hit of all the new must-have products that are gonna be oh-so big in 2020. After all, there’s nothing better than feeling the buttery texture of the ‘IT’ bronzer or adding that elusive illuminating face primer to your makeup kit; oooh and not to forget, getting our hands on those gorgeous metallic lip toppers for a pout like Kylie Jen. Say aye to these makeup trends!
From genius brow stylers, dreamy blue palettes, dewy foundations, luxurious lip glosses and metallic everything, here’s everything that we are adding to our makeup kit STAT. Happy shopping!
Here’s your New Makeup Kit for 2020:
For: That va va voom glow minus the all the greasiness.
So, the news around the block is that fun transformative textures such as Jelly will be a big upcoming makeup trend in 2020. After playing around with the Glowin' Up Highlighting Jelly from L.A. Girl, we now know why! The product comes in a jelly-like formulation that looks wet at first, but then dries to a subtle, highly pigmented glow (oooh la la). What we love most though, is the oil-free, water-based formulation that sits like a dream, won’t clog pores and doesn’t feel greasy or sticky. If this ain’t innovation, we don’t know what is.
For: A lustrous 3-dimensional pout.
We have been enamoured with this beauty since its launch. The unique liquid to powder formula ensures high colour payoff while effortlessly blending to deliver a sophisticated chrome shimmer. While its Marula and Chamomile ingredients delivers intense hydration that makes your lips look plumper and hydrated. We recommend toping it off on your lipstick for that added glam!
For: A custom contour.
Haven’t yet found the perfect bronzer shade to suit your skin tone? Well, this revolutionary product from Physicians Formula is what our contouring dreams are made up of. The special powder combines several different shades allowing you to adjust your shade from dark to light—making it ideal for skin tones that change with the seasons. Pure genius.
For: Embracing the Pantone color of the year.
Believe it or not, this mousse-textured makeup eyeshadow
is a trending makeup product which is beyond gorgeous. The rich blue hue is supremely buildable, so a quick dip into the pan with your finger will give you a painterly wash of color. However, if you pack it on a brush, expect to get a bold, dramatic pop of color—and nothing less. And forget any fading or creasing. We rest our case.
For: That lit-from-within glow after all the party season binge.
Get ready for seriously glow-y skin all year around. So, what if you haven’t been guzzling water by the hour, this one’s the cheat sheet to all that dewy wonder (shhhh). The primer is infused with shimmery light reflecting particles that adds a soft glow to your face; plus, hydrates your skin and helps your makeup last longer. Use this with foundation or under foundation for a glow that won’t be fading anytime soon.
For: Lashes that will pop from a mile away.
This is a good time as any to ditch your black mascaras and add some fun to your makeup kit. We are feeling colored mascaras such as Kiko Milano’s Smart Color Mascara in Metallic Purple that is super cute, wearable and oh-so luxuriously creamy. The highly pigmented color applies like a dream and doesn’t flake out all day. Not ready to wear this alone? Try this over your black mascara for a high definition effect.
For: Super-stylized brows.
The trendiest brow of 2020: Structured, strong and polished brows that aren’t going away anytime soon. Get the look with The Body Shop Brow Sport Liner that subtly blends to match the colour of your eyebrows, sculpts eyebrows and resists fading and smudging. Brownie points for the angular tip that offers an extra precision when you need it the most.
