If you are into makeup, then you should be keeping tabs of the different make up trends. Better make sure that you do not blink, or else, you will miss the present ones, and new ones will begin.
Make Up Trends through the Years
What are the various makeup trends for, let us say, 4 years, from 2009 to 2011? Here is a glimpse.
During 2008, the most in demand makeup styles included the accentuated eyebrows. They were reminiscent of the 1930s era too, a time when there was great emphasis on a structured cheekbone and bohemian dark eyes.
By 2009, women were adding glitters into their faces, especially in the corner of their eyes, like a glistening teardrop, and this was not considered a crime. This became extremely popular during the fall of 2009.
At the onset of 2010, some of the trends in the previous years remained. Eye make up trends were still around, and women were sporting the smokey-eye look, very similar to that of Kim Kardashian. It made them sultry. But there was another way of making oneself sexy. One of the make up trends fall 2010 was the use of heavy red lipsticks. They go extremely well with the natural makeup appearance.
This 2011, experts believe that the red lips will remain, but then the ladies will give more attention to the lashes, making them longer, curler, and larger. Interestingly, matching makeup shades is not a fashion faux pas anymore.
How to Spot Make Up Trends
You do have plenty of ways on how to keep up with the current trends in makeup. First, you read fashion magazines, particularly those that are issued right after every season collection (spring, summer, fall, and winter collection). Normally the debut of makeup trends occurs during fashion weeks. At this time, experts and even ordinary women can easily determine if the makeup goes well with the current apparel sold in the market.
You can also read online magazines, as well as blogs, especially those maintained by certified fashion experts and stylists. Lastly, watch videos and TV. A-list celebrities are usually the ones who are most up-to-date with new makeup trends. This is also great since you already have a peg.
Classics Still Remain
Despite the ever-changing makeup trends, there are still things that remain: your own sense of style. The latest make up trends should not be followed if you are going to lose yourself in the process. Hot makeup styles do not count if you cannot express yourself fully.
Never lose sight on the main reason why you are putting makeup: to make yourself look and feel good. Not all makeup trends would work wonders for you, and it is a double whammy if you follow them and you are not completely comfortable.
The makeup trends should just serve as your guide, your inspiration on how you should look. You still have to test them before you follow them. Consider dressing up and styling your hair before you don on a makeup style. Then look at yourself in the mirror. Do you like what you are seeing?
