Must Have Makeup 2018

For every season, there is a face and for every face a hot new look to try every season. It seems like there is always a new makeup trend and also one that was new and is coming back for round two! We’ve rounded up the coolest makeup trends heating up this summer season and we think you’re going to love them!

The Midas touch – Maybe everything you touch won’t turn to gold, but we love this yellow-gold metallic highlighter on lips, cheeks and that creates a gloriously golden look.  

Back in black – Oh ya, black is back and bolder than ever! No thinly painted lines here. We’re putting on eyeliner and laying it on thick. Apply it around both lash lines creating a dramatic wing or cat’s eye. We like liquid liner for this hot look.

Eye candy – If you’re more of a fan of colors that pop than boldly black, this cool trend is for you! Eyeliner with a pop of color coordinated with your outfit or accessories is making a huge splash at pool parties everywhere this summer. Think key lime or coral accent against tan skin and matching hair bling.

Well-rounded – There are plenty of trending eye glam tips this season but we particularly like the thumb-print eyeliner trend. A new twist on the classic cat eye, its rounded, less pronounced look is less dramatic but still commands attention.


Morning dewy –Who doesn’t love dewy, glowing skin? Don’t have it? That’s ok, with the current craze for liquid makeups and creams that lend a natural shine to your skin, you’ll be positively radiant! Keep the rest of your makeup minimalist to highlight your natural looking glow.

Whatever your preference is for shaking up your makeup look this season; the good news is there are really no wrong answers! Reinventing yourself with a fresh and fun look is always trending so be fearless and rock whatever look speaks to your personal style.
