A beautiful, fresh, glowing complexion is the goal for every makeup lover, and it can be accomplished even with a full coverage foundation. This desirable look can be achieved by piling on a highlighter for an almost wet look.

This dreamy, soft makeup trend is perfect for the more minimalist makeup connoisseur. You can stick to just one color to achieve this unique look or experiment with multiple different colors. Try using one color for the inner corner, one color for the center of the lid, and one color for the outer third of the lid and you’ll end up with a more intricate colorful look.

This trend never goes out of style. The sheer makeup or no-makeup makeup look is a go to look for any and everyone. This trend enhances your natural beauty by using less product on the face. Try using a natural glossy lip color, subtle blush colors, natural brow and glowy highlighter for that effortless look.

Exaggerated eye makeup is a fun trend you can try this year. Eyes are a huge focus for 2020 and these whimsical looks will enhance your natural eye color. Try making this look soft, blurred and undefined for a more ethereal look, or try going for structured lines for a more edgy look.
