A new year means a new season of beauty. Our Lead MUA, Rachael Keeley, sets her beauty trend forecast for make up that is set to be huge for 2018. Love them or loathe them, these looks will definitely make an impression…

Glow Getter

Highlighted skin isn’t going anywhere – in fact, it’s only getting glossier! Luminous, glass-like finishes on the cheeks, eyes and lips are set to be huge; go for a golden tone to be super on-trend. Always opt for liquid and cream based products that melt into the skin for that glowing, wet-shine finish.

Next Level Lashes

Not for the faint hearted, retro lashes have made a comeback. Deliberate clumps of mascara piled onto the top and bottom lashes create that 60s-style spidery effect. Pinch the lashes together as the mascara dries to really recreate this quirky style.

Unusual Liner

Graphic liners are not only staying, they’re taking it up a level. Under the eye, on top of the eye or all the way around, anything goes with this powerful and compelling look. Go bigger, or even go neon to make a bolder impression!

Glitter Bug

The party season has come and gone yet sparkle, shimmer and shine are here to stay. Whether it’s a subtle wash or chunky pieces, glitter can be seen on the eyes and even the lips for that extra feel. You could even go that extra mile to bling up your look and add rhinestones and crystals!

This year’s trends take 2017’s looks to the next level. Skin gets glossier, liner gets crazier and lashes get more voluminous, all topped off with a large serving of sparkle.
