Amazing Makeup Trend #1: Faux Freckles, Clumpy Lashes

To put it simply, this is definitely one of our favorite trends. It’s a throwback to the 1970s, when clumpy lashes and fake freckles were all the rage.

Remember Shelley Duval? Clumpy lashes and freckles were her look as a teenager back in the 1960s.

It’s very easy to achieve this look. Use Lord & Berry Back in Black High Definition Mascara, and get your eyelashes extra clumpy by moving the wand back and forth like a windshield wiper.

And if freckles are your thing, press the blunt tips of three different color pencils to your skin to create scattered dots over your cheeks and nose. For a more realistic effect, please put your dots scattered in random places.

Amazing Makeup Trend #2: Chestnut Lipstick

For our next trend, we wanted to point out that chestnut colored lipstick is certainly on the rise in popularity in 2016.

Why are so many women going gaga over the shade? Well, it’s darker than the color tan, and on the other hand, it’s lighter than the color brown. This unique hue is exceptionally easy to create, and you can make this work with a small amount of mascara and concealer and you’re definitely going to be good to go.

You’ll have to get a little creative when making the shade, but it’s best to use M.A.C. Lip Pencil, and then layering it with a blend of red, brown, yellow and orange pigments over the top.

If you plan to attempt to make this shade at home, we recommend using Mary Kay True Dimensions Lipstick in Chocolatte as your main lipstick foundation. Just follow the instructions and you should be able to make this happen relatively easy. And you’re going to love the way that you look because this is an amazing color!

Amazing Makeup Trend #3: Nothing More Than Red Lipstick

This is an exciting new trend to say the least! Women all over the world are starting to adopt the red lipstick trend. Classic red lipstick is back baby, and it’s making a huge splash!

Since this color is absolutely gorgeous, and it really stands out, it’s even better to wear it with bare skin and nothing else.

Why is that?

When your skin is naked, the red lipstick is really going to stand out and catch the attention of just about everyone. You’ll be the talk of the town and everybody is going to notice your beautiful, puffy, bright red lips!

Wear this crimson color with no mascara and no foundation. Our personal favorite brand is Cherry Cherry Bang Bang from Maybelline New York Color Blur by Lip Studio.

Wearing cobalt liner is a trend that is simply to die for! We love it. And other women all around the world also love this beautiful hue.

Why is this trend suddenly catching on in 2016?

It’s hard to tell why a trend becomes popular, but as far as cobalt liner is concerned, it really stands out. And in this day and age, women have to do everything possible to stand out and be recognized.

That’s exactly what you’re going to get when you start wearing cobalt liner. This chromatographic shade provides extra pizzazz and really helps the inner rims of the eyes sparkle.
