Now that 2017 is gone, we can finally wave goodbye to some of the worst make up trends of the year! (Think squiggle eyebrows and lollipop lips.)

As we move on to 2018, we say “Out with the old and in with the new!” Coming from the hottest runways on the planet, here are a few of 2018’s make up trends that we are excited about!

1. Can You Rock That Cleopatra Look?

Black eyeliner is back, baby! And it is taking a dramatic turn for 2018. Spotted on several runways, eyeliner is no longer worn only on the upper lash, but also on the lower lash. Think thick lines around both lash lines that you can wing out at a dramatic angle! Just like how Cleopatra wore her eyeliner back in her days.

For the best eyeliner that will last all day, we highly recommend the Kat Von D Tattoo Liner that can be found at Sephora (approximately P 1,171 after cashback).


2. Drop Dead Red!

Everyone knows that red lips will never go out of style! This difference is that this year you don’t need to make it the main focus of your look. Rock your red lips with smoky eyes, full-on highlight, and contour. We fully support it!

We are not talking about eyeshadow and lipstick. We are talking rhinestones, gems, glitter tattoos and sequins!

You can find sequins and glitter face tattoos on AliExpress from USD 2.82, approximately P 140 (after cashback).


5. Gloss Those Lids!

We probably had a hint of them last year, but it looks like this trend is here to stay! It is an easy way to elevate your eyeshadow game without having to spend so much of time! All you need is to grab some non-sticky clear lip gloss (or lip balm), dab some on top of your eyeshadow and voila! Just think of it as adding a topcoat to your eyeshadow.

One of the best lip balms that you can use for this look is Vaseline, which can be found on Lazada at approximatelyP 117 (after cashback).


6. Time for Gold and Holo!

This is the year that ultra-highlighted skin is an in-thing! Choose from a bright, vivid gold or holographic pigments to bring your highlighter game to a whole new level! Not only that, your highlight is no longer bound to just your cheekbones or Cupid’s bow. Just lightly spread it all over the high points of your face for a glow-ier look!

If you would like something bright and vivid for the new year, we highly suggest Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife that you can find on Sephora for approximately P 1,852 (after cashback).


7. Going Ultra Violet!

Every year, Pantone will name a color of the year, and this year’s color is Ultra Violet, a color that is mysterious, complex, intriguing and contemplative. From eyeshadows to lipsticks, we can’t wait to see what awesome make up looks will crop up with this color!

You can find this pretty Ultra Violet lipstick on AliExpress at USD 1.35, approximately P 67 (after cashback).
