2020 has been a rollercoaster year but that doesn’t stop you from rocking good makeup. Now, more than ever, beauty enthusiasts are experimenting with different styles of makeovers. In this article, we show you the biggest makeup trends in the beauty industry of 2020.
Every year has its unique beauty trends—2020 is not an exception. In 2019, we were treated to really exciting makeup variations such as colorful glitters, creative eyeliners and bold eye shadows. We even brought back some ‘90s inspired beauty looks like the black pencil eyeliner and standout glossed lips.
What does 2019’s makeup success mean for 2020? For a new decade, it can only mean that trends we stuck to in previous decades will eventually evolve towards a new beauty direction. So far, 2020 hasn’t disappointed with its new makeup trends; styles that are not only classy but have a renaissance feel.
According to top celebrity makeup artists, here are a few of the most trendy makeup styles to consider in 2020:
- Floating Eyeliners
There is a lot of focus on eyeliners, and floating eyeliners is just one of such variations. You can replicate this unique style using products you already have in your makeup bag. Simply whip out any liquid liner of your choice and draw an extended cat-eye. To finish the look, draw another line across the crease so these two lines connect at the outside corner of your eyes.
- Shades of Blue
If you haven’t noticed, the color blue has gained a lot of traction in 2020. There really is no surprise here; ‘Classic Blue’ is Pantone color of the year 2020, because it inspires a feeling of calm, peace and confidence. You can make your own bold blue eye makeup look by simply swiping a navy liner across your eyes.
- Blurred Lips
The advocacy of gloss, liners and lipsticks continues in 2020. It is now the time for blurred lips. Like the matte bold lip, the blurred lips look is just as bold and colorful, but edges the former style in terms of flexibility. To replicate this style, apply a lipstick bullet to your lips. Start from the center and gently fade the color outwards. Do this once more before fading the edges with a Q-tip.
- Over-the-Top Blush
If you don’t use blushes enough, 2020 is the year to do so. The glow that comes from applying a little dab of blush on your cheeks is nothing compared to the shine that accompanies the use of a lot more blush. Why don’t you try extending your blush up to the temples and onto the eyelids today? This is sure to give you an ethereal yet romantic look.
- Glass Skin
Also considered breathable skin, glowing, glass skin is one of the biggest trends of 2020. Expert beauty artists believe that letting your skin breathe is the best way to achieve a revitalized beauty look. To achieve this look, you’ll need to combine moisturizers, highlighters and oil to give your face some glow. Remember to use concealers for problem areas and apply some setting powder on other areas of your face that look oily.
