Black Attack
Get your black eyeliner ready

Black eyeliner is taking a dramatic turn in 2018 (as seen at Marc Jacobs and a handful of other runway shows). Trace it thick around both lash lines, wing it out at a dramatic angle, or create graphic shapes with it just don’t trace a thin line above your lashes and call it a day.

The cat-eye flick is getting a new look in 2018. Instead of tracing an ultra-sharp wing, round-off the edge.
Trace the outline of the wing first, then fill it in. Or use a small makeup sponge applicator (the kind that comes in most
eyeshadow pans) as a stamp to create the
rounded shape.

Retro clumpy lashes made a comeback. These aren’t quite as dramatic as Twiggy lashes, but they do require layers of mascara and a few well-placed lashes.


Metallic makeup in all shades and finishes will continue to trend in 2018. Wear it subtly by swiping a clear lip gloss shot-through with holographic shimmer over your favorite lipstick. Or go for bold by choosing a frosted or glittery lipstick in an unusual shade.

We hope you’re not sick of glitter yet – because 2018 is poised to be the year of all-glitz everything. Gold highlighter, glittery glosses, and stark-black eyeliner are going to be your makeup MVPs in 2018.

Glitter will have gone supersize in 2018 if the runways are any indication. Rhinestones, gems, and sequins are the new way to wear the sparkly stuff, adorned on your eyelids and around your
eyes using lash glue. It takes a little patience, but the statement-making payoff is worth it.
