Gel EyelinerDramatic black eyes are in, and it’s turning us emo. This year we’re changing over to gel-based liners because they’re the new happy medium between colour-in pencils and drying liquid liners. Use Maybelline Lasting Drama Matte Lacquer Gel Eyeliner to create semi-circular curves, angled, patterned flicks around your corners and to fill your entire eyelid.
Gold HighlighterHighlighting is everything this year. Highlight your cheeks, temples, eyes, arms, Cupid’s bow and collarbone for a captivating, subtle glow. This year, we’re loving the NYX Professional Makeup Strobe of Genius Illuminating Palette for its rich champagnes, sun-kissed bronzes and buttery-lemony shades.
Metallic Lipstick TubesHolographs took the world by storm last year, and they’re not going anywhere in 2018. Go for great quality products that illuminate colours as you move, like L’Oréal Infallible Lip Paint Metallic Liquid lipstick. The melting metal gloss is truly the highlighter equivalent for your lips.
Lash-Lengthening MascaraMascara will dominate this year, and after seeing those forest-thick lashes on every runway, we’re more unsatisfied with our own twig-like lashes than ever. That’s why we can’t live without Lancôme Hypnose – unbeatable when it comes to building thickness and length. It brilliantly separates each lash, so no clumping occurs.
Glitter is an obsession this year, and the otherworldly shades in the Urban Decay Moondust Eyeshadow Palette is the glitter bomb that came to greet us from another galaxy. In the mood for a little drama? Pour glitter over your entire eyelid for a fierce sparkle that will turn heads. Just make sure everyone can see you when you’re standing under bright lights on the dancefloor.
2018 is the year to be seen. Don’t be afraid of going all out with dramatic looks and bright colours, as too much is never enough playing around with light and shades. Keep your sunglasses off, because the glare coming from these products will usher in the new normal and have you shining for the whole year
