Spring 2018’s makeup trends are in full bloom with stunning sparkle and vibrant hues that will put your garden to shame. We’ve identified the top 5 trends we’re most excited to try and rounded up the products that will help you achieve them at any budget.
Spring sheds megawatt glow with yellow-gold highlighter swiped across your cheekbones and dabbed in the inner corner of your eyes. Fenty Beauty’s shade Trophy Wife has been a favorite newcomer to the market, but Wet & Wild’s MegaGlo Highlighter in Golden Flower Crown packs a similar punch for only $5.
2018’s color of the year may be Ultra Violet, but we’re transfixed by magical mermaid hues like MAC’s Teal Appeal and its drugstore dupe, NYX’s Savage. Swipe the tropical shade across your eyelid or use an eyeliner brush to build it up along your lower lash line.
Ensure glitz and glam with every eyelash flutter by applying a loose cosmetic glitter like those from Make Up For Ever or NYX to your entire eyelid. Or achieve a subtle shimmer by applying a liquid metallic shadow like Stila’s Glitter & Glow or E.L.F.’s $4 Pop of Glitter Gel to your inner corners.
This au natural look, achieved with a light coverage face makeup, will be your best friend on days you don’t feel like fussing with color. Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream can be picked up at the drugstore while Laura Mercier’s Tinted Moisturizer is a high-end favorite.
