With only a few months to go, there’s very little time remaining to enjoy the fashion and beauty trends that have made so many looks that we just can’t get enough of. Don those sweaters and booties and wear them with pride for the weeks you have left before this year falls into the next one and trends change once again.
Many people, both in the fashion industry and out of it, are starting to think ahead to what the new trends of 2018 will be. You can be confident that at least some popular styles will transfer to next year, but what will those trends end up being? Check out some of these beauty trends that are sure to never lose their style, no matter what month, season or year it is.
The Smokey Eye
The classic smokey eye look feels to have been around for much longer than it actually has. If done right, the fading color around the eyelids can make anyone appear to look like they’re out for fun but they mean business. It’s why millions of girls all around the world watch tutorials to replicate the look on themselves or get other people to do it for them. If you’ve finally mastered the technique, don’t worry—it’s not going away anytime soon.
Bold Cheeks and Lips
Putting more emphasis on your cheeks and lips while keeping makeup off your eyes will be a fabulous look for the spring of 2018. It has a mystical look that brings out the feeling of being in a chilly breeze in winter while flowers are just starting to bloom. Pair some blush with light to medium colored lipstick for the ultimate springtime look that will carry you from January to April.
Change Your Eye Color
Most of the time when people think about beauty trends, they think of traditional hair and makeup techniques. However, part of moving forward into the future means that new opportunities will become available, and for the world of beauty, that means everyone can start changing their eye color. When used over time, changing your eye color is sure to become the next big beauty trend because it’s easy and affordable. Plus, anyone can try it, no matter what eye issues you have or have had in the past.
Minimalist makeup and wearing no makeup are two very different things, which you’ll be able to see more clearly starting early next year. While people in the fashion industry currently wear the minimalist look, it has yet to hit the streets, but you won’t have to wait long.
For this look, all you have to do is apply a basic foundation to create an even skin tone over your entire face. Apply a little mascara and brush out those brows. For those who feel like they can’t leave the house without their lipstick, you can even apply a nude lip color with a little bit of shine. Accent your cheekbones and you’ll be the newest minimalist queen in town, ready to dazzle with your accentuated natural beauty.
Many people have beauty trends that they hold onto and swear they’ll never change. Some of these might be things like thick eyeliner, bold lips or deep contouring. However, this year while you’re writing out your new year’s resolutions, jot down a few quick beauty trends to try out.
A large majority of near future beauty trends are all about using less makeup to make a bigger statement, which is something you shouldn’t miss out on. You’ll love the feeling of walking out of the house with very little makeup on, because you’ll be filled with all the confidence in the world. And after all, beauty tips and tricks should be all about bringing out your personality and self-confidence so you can be your best self no matter where you are or what your budget is.
This spring, embrace some of the new beauty trends by trying some out on yourself. You don’t need to do anything drastic and then worry about it while walking around in public. Start small, embrace who you are and use the current and 2018 beauty trends to show yourself off to the world.
