What’s Popular in the Makeup World

So you probably already know what is trending in the makeup world of 2015. It’s the super natural look. You want to look good but also look like you did nothing to make yourself look that good. It’s that I-just-woke-up-but-I’m-damn-good-looking approach that is sweeping our nation. Now, this is very easy for people with perfect complexion and a face that looks like it was chiseled by the hands of Greek gods. But some of us look like swamp thing reincarnated, or a pale and pasty troglodyte.

So for you ladies out there that need a little backup to keep up with the trend, here are a few tips. First, remember the goal is raw, natural beauty. You want a no-makeup look that really separates you from the clown masks of bygone days. But it is also true that the no-makeup look is really enhanced with a little makeup. I know that is weird, but it is true! For instance, high-shine textures on both the lids and the brows will give you a glossy appeal. Use a skin matched foundation with just a dab of blush and clear balm on the lips for a really natural look. Instead of eyeliner, consider strips of satin in pink or peach or other natural-looking hues. Some people will simply use a sheer pink shadow lightly around the eyes and that is enough to give your beauty that natural emphasis.

Moreover, you could always stick to another hot trend of 2015 and that’s the just-the-lips look. Here you want to go in strong with a big bang on the lips, like a blood sort of sleeping beauty red. Consider Chanel’s Rouge Allure Luminous Satin Lip Color in Pirate or Revlon’s Super Lustrous Lipstick in Fire & Ice. This look draws all the attention to your luscious lips which means you want to scale back to a very soft natural look on your other features.

Whatever your style is, give the natural look a try. Or just go big on the lips and see those second looks pile up!
