2018 Makeup Trends.. with Korean Cosmetic Options

Once the New Year comes, I get busy cleaning up my wardrobe and makeup console for a new start – It’s easy to begin with and hoping that new things make a ‘New Me’ – more pretty and younger-looking^0^.
Unlike skincare products which require long-term commitment, makeup can make your look better, more glowing and youthful instantly, with a simple tools & tricks.

I’d like to summerize the 2018 Makeup Trends and Guides which Korean products can help to follow this years trends.

< 2018 Beauty Trend Forecast >

Continuing on from last year, glitter will be one of the hot picks – gold highlighter, glittery glosses, black eyeliner etc. These are the lists:
1. Black Eyeliner & Cat-Eye Flick
It’s taking a dramatic turn in 2018 from Bold Black Eyeliner to Cat-Eye Look – round the edge of eye line or give a sharp flick.

2. The New Glitter – Various size and types of Glitter such as rhinestones, gems and sequins.
3. Everything is Gold!

4. Metallic Makeup – Add subtle glow or go bold.
5. Thick Lashes – Retro clumpy, twiggy-effect lashes.
6. Glowing Look is the key.
A healthy glowing finish on skin instead of a matte caked or powdery finish. Adding more ultra-highighted skin or pearl-sensationy look is also spot on.

7. Natural Eyebrow

8. Bold/Bright Lipstick (80s-inspired bright lipstick) & Smudged Lip
9. Inner Corners – Dabbing a bright color on the inner corners of your eyes to brighten and make eyes bigger.

10. Blue Eye Makeup – Simply draw a lower lashline or apply a matte blue eyeshadow across the entire eyelid.
