Makeup Trends for 2019: Colours, Styles & Tricks

1.    Smokey eyes with glitter and gold

If you are in search of a glorious party look, smokey eyes remain the classic that can fit any occasion. However, in 2019, you should go bolder with it and add some glitter or a sparkly eyeliner. Gold is the trending colour, but if your complexion isn’t working with it, go for silver. The point is to make the sparkle subtle but catching in the proper light.

To complete such a glam look, you’ll need to go with a nude lipstick. Go for matte, it’s also trending and will distract even less from your stunning eye makeup.

2.    Colours everywhere

There is this classic makeup rule that you highlight either eyes or lips. It works in many situations, but 2019 is the year for those who want to be bold and daring. The next big trend is using bold-coloured eyeshadow (a single colour only) and painting your lips some vivid shade of red.

The eyeshadow colours can be anything, the bolder the better. This includes yellow, blue, and neon-pink. Choose the shade of lipstick complementary to the eyeshadow and add some artificial lashes to complete the look. Click here to see professional products in trending colour palettes.

3.    Foil-like lips

The natural look still rocks in 2019, so you can go with as little makeup as possible (or none at all) and be trendy. However, if you want to add some glamour to this style, you should play around with the lipstick. Make your lips sensual and impossible to miss by creating a foil-like look.

To achieve it, you can simply paint your lips with sparkling eyeliner. Your lips will look like they are covered with liquid metal, which is sure to draw attention. This makeup style allows for ‘lipstick’ only. It’s the choice for classy parties where you get to wear elegant gowns.

4.    Statement eyeshadow

The natural look is getting a few makeovers in 2019. It seems that now it’s quite acceptable to use eyeshadow only. And you should be using it to make a statement. This means using a bold colour and covering your entire eyelid with it.

The look is daring and will work well if you are planning to show off your street style. It’s also very simple to create but it leaves a lasting impression. Colour-coordinate the eyeshadow with your outfit and complexion.

5.    Abstract eyeliner art

Colours aren’t the only things you can go bold with come 2019. Makeup artists also encourage everyone to play around with shapes. The classic ‘cat eyes’ drawn with an eyeliner are a thing of the past. Today you should be using this product to create ornaments on your eyelids (both upper and lower).

    I love the foil-like look trend for 2019. At my age, I’m not sure I could pull off a smoky eye or the bright neon colors, but I would love it if I were younger!
