It’s April already and 2019 has a lot in store for the makeup lovers out there who want to try all the latest trends. Getting way ahead of the makeup game is the goal of every other girl or boy and we can understand why. The beauty industry has developed phenomenally in the past decade and thanks to MUA’s of Instagram we have a lot to catch up on. But don’t worry, you are not falling behind, you just need to get updated. 2018 is over girl, say goodbye and jump into 2019 as you welcome everything it brings along with it including the must-try makeup trends. Whether it’s your eyeshadow, your brows, you hair or just bold lips, here’s everything you need to know.

1. Bold Is Beautiful

It’s time to say goodbye to your nude palette and embrace those vibrant colors. In 2019, neon is what everyone’s talking about. Regardless of the occasion and even if your dress sucks, neon eye shadows will save your reputation as it is the most glammed up makeup trend that everyone, including celebrities, is following.

2. Go with the Glow

While 2018 was loaded with natural and beautiful-from-within skin, that trend is staying for 2019 as well. In fact, unlike glowy skin, where you apply minimal makeup and a thin layer of foundation to let your real color peek through, there is an advanced trend known as Dumpling Skin that everyone is going crazy over. The only difference is that Dumpling Skin involves more makeup than the regular glowy, no makeup, natural skin.

3. Make Your Brow Game Strong

Strong and full eyebrows never go out of style. I repeat, NEVER. Gone are the days of a pointed arch and thin, almost-impossible-to-see brows. In 2019, you need to up your brow game and start showcasing fuller brows that look more natural. Brows are something that need to be taken care of first and foremost while doing makeup. If you don’t have your brows right, forget making a good impression with the rest of your eye makeup.


4. Glitter, Glitter Everywhere

Glitter is back from the ’80s in a more stylish yet messy-but-cool looking way. If you are a glitter lover then be prepared for this much anticipated makeup trend of 2019. You can apply glitter anywhere: your eyes, your lips, your cheeks! This trend is considered to be holographic as it provides an effortless way to shine bright in the crowd.

5. Hello Pastel Tones!

Ready for spring and summer? Add pastel tones to your must-have list because you are going to see a lot of them when the time comes. You can use colors like pale pink, minty green or light blue and jazz them up with a graphic eyeliner to complete the look.

6. Make Lip Tint Your Best Friend

Lip tints made remarkable progress in 2018 and this trend is here to stay. Looking for a subtle yet cute touch of pink to your lips? Apply lip tint! Having one in your handbag at all times is highly recommended because you never know when you’re gonna need that color refresher on your face, especially your lips and cheeks!
