10 New Makeup Trends For 2016

It is a new year, and that means that we are going to be seeing a lot of new trends. As they say, out with the old and in with the new, and that goes for makeup trends too! Last year, out of line mascara, rosy cheeks, and heavy metal sparkle were some of the hottest makeup trends, but this year is calling for a change. As we all know, trends go in and out of style faster than the snap of a finger, so how do you keep up? Not to worry, we have you covered with 10 new makeup trends for 2016 right here!

1. Bold Blues

Harpers Bazaar

That's right 80's fans, blue is back! Bolts of blue eyeliner and powder blue shadow have been taking the runway by storm in just the past month. Take a trip down memory lane and give this old trend another try.

2. Glitter


Another favorite of many, glitter is making a comeback! For some, perhaps glitter never left your makeup routine, but this year, fashionistas are all about it, especially around the eyes.

3. Glossy Shine

Decorating Ideas

To mimic the kind of shine you would get from dancing all night, skipping foundation and using Vaseline over your eyelids and cheek bones is the new thing to do. It gives you a natural, yet glamours look, and accentuates the best parts of your face.

4. Red Lips

Trending Fashions

The classic red lip truly never goes out of style, but this year it will be especially prominent with current, varying shades. Bold mouths fit very well with the backdrop of seemingly bare skin, which is perfect to pair with that glossy shine!

5. Bronzed Lids

Pakistani Ladies

In addition to the blue trend, bronzed lids are also very big this year. Use your favorite bronzer to give your eyes shine, sparkle, and warmth!

6. Subtle Contouring


"Spot treat" your face by using one area to specifically accentuate, like your cheekbones, nose, or jawline. By picking just one part of your face to contour, you will look more natural, but will still stand out.

7. Perfectly Pink Cheeks


Red cheeks are out, and pink cheeks are in! By using light pink blush, you will look more natural, and still maintain that young glow that we all love!

8. Bottom Liner

Beauty Stat

This year, the cat eye is out and bottom liner is in! By just applying eye liner on your bottom lid, you will achieve a more natural look, and it won't take you nearly as long to perfect.

9. Gold Lips


Gold everything is big this year, but especially gold lips! This retro trend is new to many, but it is one that you should definitely try on a night out with friends!

10. Strong Brows

One Fine Day Wedding Fair

Strong brows are back...again, and we couldn't be happier! Accentuating your brows makes your eyes pop, especially on a natural face with light makeup.
