The 2020 Makeup Trends You Need to Try Today
2020 may not have gone as expected – I know I can’t be the only that’s felt a little defeated.

Now more than ever, I’ve noticed major experimentation with makeup looks and I am totally here for it! From mermaid makeup to watercolor makeup, these trends are completely alluring. Here are a few makeup trends you need to try out:
Try watercolor eye makeup for the first time & not so bad
As we’ve seen on makeup muses flooding our Instagram feeds, watercolor eye makeup is a trend, so I couldn’t help but create my own version of the trend. For this look I‘ve used: Highlighter: Essence Cosmetics holo wow! sparke stick Eyebase: Makeup Revolution conceal&define concealer & NYX jumbo eye pencil milk Eyeshadow: Makeup Revolution maxi reloaded monster mattes palette Eyeliner: Essence longlasting eye pencil life in pink & Glisten Cosmetics wet pastel liner strawberry Lashes: Essence all eyes on me waterproof mascara
The Ultimate Watercolor Eye Makeup Tutorial
Sometimes when we pick up a makeup brush, we get the urge to paint a portrait on our face that’s as pretty as a Monet. This tutorial I saw from the L'Oreal website, and it came up with makeup artist Anne Kohlhagen. And courtesy of IG @vi.marshall @tyronmachausen. STEP 1: Apply Your Outline in Powder The first step to any watercolor eye is building your map of colors with powder shadows, according to Kohlhagen. Focus on letting the colors overlap, but do not combine them. STEP 2: Apply Creams Overtop to Set Once you’ve mapped out where each color is going to go, apply a cream or liquid eyeshadow in matching colors over top to set the look and really make each shade pop. Once applied, go in with a fluffy brush to blend out any harsh edges around where the color meets your skin tone. STEP 3: Set With Setting Spray “If you want to go back and change some of the colors, go in with a Q-tip and a waterproof makeup remover,” Kohlhagen notes. And as far as setting the entire look, finish off with a spritz of the Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray. This will keep your look from creasing and your watercolor shadows from melding together throughout the day.
matching makeup colours with my mood
Daily, i pick colours which match my mood and i form a makeup look with it. I first used MAYBELLINE - Super Stay Full Coverage Under-Eye Concealer which i have been using for quite a while and it honestly helps with my under eye bags a lot. for eyeliner i used COVERGIRL - Outlast Active Get in Line Active Eyeliner which I use daily and is one of my favourite products. for the blue and red eyeliner look i used RIMMEL - Wonder'swipe 2-in-1 Liner to Shadow which is amazing when you wanna add colour to your look with an eyeliner that is easy to use. and also a lip colour filler for the red liner, to make them be bolder i used NYX - Limited Edition PRIDE Ultimate Shadow Palette which gives u a variety of different colours to match whatever you are feeling. as always, a look in my opinion isn’t together without eyelashes and i love using Lilly LASHES - Lilly LASHES 3D Faux Mink Lashes to give me the extra confidence in my look. at the end, i topped it off with smashbox - Shape, Glow & Bronze Set to give myself rosy cheeks and make myself glow with the highlight
