Get your black eyeliner ready.
We hope you’re not sick of glitter yet—because 2018 is poised to be the year of all-glitzy everything. Gold highlighter, glittery glosses, and stark-black eyeliner are going to be your makeup MVPs in 2018. Here, our beauty trend forecast from the runways—and Instagram.
Black eyeliner is taking a dramatic turn in 2018 (as seen at Marc Jacobs and a handful of other runway shows). Trace it thick around both lashlines, wing it out at a dramatic angle, or create graphic shapes with it—just don’t trace a thin line above your lashes and call it a day.
The New Glitter
Glitter will have gone supersize in 2018 if the runways are any indication. Rhinestones, gems, and sequins are the new way to wear the sparkly stuff, adhered on your eyelids and around your eyes using lash glue. It takes a little patience, but the statement-making payoff is worth it.
Rihanna didn’t invent gold makeup, but she did invent the gold highlighter you’re going to see everywhere for the next million-or-so years. Trophy Wife, from her Fenty Beauty line, is the perfect yellow-gold metallic pigment that can (and should) be all over your face.
