Hello, darlings. Today I am collabing with the one and only Brooke Clarke! Everyone please go check her out if you haven’t already. She has an amazing beauty and lifestyle blog. She’s so active in he blogging community and she’s sweet as pie. She produces so much top notch content, I don’t know how she does it! She is seriously amazing. Thank you for collabing with me again, Brooke. You’re the best!
For our collab, Brooke had the idea of doing makeup trends. So we decided to come up with 3 each. I went to Instagram and looked at what makeup trends I saw on there. I’ve noticed that “less is more” is the case in most trends. That paired with what I see a lot in everyday life, I chose these three trends.
Glitter is a part of everyone’s makeup collection these days. It’s a versatile product that can give any look some va-voom. You can use it over shadows, as shadow by itself, as liner, paired with liner, highlighting, anything. Today, I tried to pair some glitter with my liner. This is what I got. I didn’t go crazy with my shadow today because I didn’t want the look to be too busy. I’m going with the less is more theme today.
This is a photo from Michelle’s Instagram. She’s a very talented makeup artist. She was pairing glitter with her liner in this photo as well, but she’s obviously way more talented and adventurous than I am.
2. Shadow Liner
Shadow Liner is using the eyeshadow you’re wearing to create a wing. I’ve done this a lot recently, although I always use liner as well. Some people use solely eyeshadow to create a faux winged liner. I’ve seen this a lot in the beauty community on YouTube recently. This also follows the less is more theme, because you’re using less product. I obviously always am so extra when it comes to my makeup, so I do the shadow wing and traditional black winged liner as well.
Here’s another photo from Michelle. You can see how she used her shadow to create the shape and almost al illusion of a wing.
3. Glossy Lips
Last year was all about the matte lip, well this year is all about the glossy, high shine lip. I’ve been seeing this everywhere. Especially with all the lip toppers being released. This is obviously go with the less is more idea, because the look of gloss isn’t as bold or as much product as what the trends have been before, with matte lips and what not.
And those are the 3 makeup options I’ve noticed are trending recently. I hope you all liked this post. Thank you again for collabing with me, Brooke! Everyone make sure you check out her blog. Thank you all so much for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow.
