A big part of the 2010s was spent trying to create an “effortless” makeup look. However, this new decade introduced us to some fun changes where all the bets are off, and the makeup is as playful, original, experimental and quirky as you want it to be. Retro inspiration hit us hard this year, too. Still, no matter how unsubtle and bold these beauty trends are, you can never say they’re too much.
1. Cold Tones
Finally, cool tones are making a huge comeback after a decade of dominance of warm tones. Cold blues, greens, pinks, and purples will be easily spotted on the streets now, giving your eyes that chic, bold look that you’ve been avoiding for too long.
2. Pearls as Decoration
Of course, we’re talking about craft pearls here, not the real ones. They’re usually used for scrapbooking, which means they’re sticky on their backs and easily put on your face. You’ll definitely get some “wows” if you decorate your lips, eyes or bone cheeks with a few pearls.
If you want to place them on your bare lid, choose the smallest ones and stick them one by one. You can even put some of them in clusters. focus on the areas where you would usually put a highlighter – under the brow bone or the corners of your eyes. As pearls are shimmery, they’ll create the same effect as the illuminator.
3. Glass Skin
This year, moisturized skin glow will be all the rage – beauty trends of 2020 want to achieve a skin-glass look through immaculate complexion. If you want to avoid the long version of the steps, simply apply an illuminating primer after you use foundation, then end with a creamy highlight in some natural shade.
4. Double Fun with False Eyelashes
False lashes are commonly used to add that last touch of drama to your make up. However, this year, they can be your whole look because double lashes mean double fun. So, no reason to go for liner and shadow when preparing for a big event – simply glue the double eyelashes and you’re good to go. A top and bottom pair of eyelashes is all you need. It’s the bottom ones that make that dramatic, luxurious look. And don’t worry – you can use them for any occasion because gluing just the bottom ones will suffice for a cool look.
5. Black Lipstick
Black lipstick may not be for everybody, and that’s ok. Still, it is the ultimate choice of lipstick for those who are not afraid of breaking the rules and being surprisingly original. Moreover, this is the lipstick to go to during special effects make up for events such as Halloween, costume party, or whenever you want to get out of your comfort zone and get wild. The goth shade of the black lipstick works for any season and for some of us it will be as classic as the red lipstick. You can also ease it if you apply a layer of glitter-infused gloss on top of your matte black lipstick. It will also move less that way.
6. Give Credit to Blush
It’s been too long since blush got any credit for doing so much for our looks. It’s a beauty product that makes a huge difference but stays ignored and overlooked. Well, no more! Draping is on the rise this year – blush placement on both cheeks and temples, which was huge in the 70s. If you also add it to your eyelids, you’ll achieve a cool mask-like look.
7. Rainbow Every Day
Using three completely different colors on your eyelids is something you simply need to try. Don’t worry – the look is something you can pull off on a daily basis. Just use different eyeliners instead of eye shadows, keeping the pigment close to the lash line. You can use any three shades next to each other that you like. You’ll need Q-tips for smudging because they’re harder than brushes, meaning they’ll remove the strong lines more easily.
8. Glittery Mood
Euphoria hugely inspired this glittery craze, meaning you can put glitter just about anywhere and everywhere. If you’re feeling bold, apply huge chunks of glitter all over your face. For a bit toned-down look, put glitters under your eyes only or use shimmery smokey shadow. Sparkle is always welcomed.
Beauty trends of 2020 are definitely bringing us some unexpected looks and bold tricks. In other words, these trends are allowing you to let go in both terms of color, decorations, and areas of your face you want to highlight.
