The main makeup trends for 2018

If you want to achieve a spectacular look, it is worth paying attention to the main trends for this year 2018.

Natural makeup

Gone is the time when super-heavy makeup was worn. This year 2018, natural makeup is a trend, especially this Spring-Summer season. The face asks for simplicity , although this does not mean at all that you do not have to wear makeup. It is therefore about achieving a “good face” effect with the right make-up products.

The first step to looking your best face is to take maximum care of your skin , both inside and out. To do this, it is important to follow a proper facial routine, as well as drink two liters of water daily to hydrate the skin.

When thinking about makeup, to achieve a natural look it is important not to mix tones. The best thing is to bet on pastel colors , which are very soft, thus creating a sensation of cleanliness and fabulous purity on the face. In addition, they have a great advantage, and that is that they adapt wonderfully to all kinds of occasions and makeup.

An essential product to achieve that natural finish is the concealer , ideal for covering small imperfections around the nose and in the area under the eyes. To give a touch of color and luminosity to the face, blush is key; It is best to choose one in nude, peach or warm pink. It is worth remembering that the blush should be as close to the skin tone as possible.

When it comes to making up the eyes, a mascara that enhances the look is enough. And finally the lips; they are perfect with a nude tone.

When we talk about natural makeup, we mean natural in every way. Try to find makeup without parabens (read our article on this topic).

Dark colors

Without a doubt, dark colors are taking the makeup world by storm this 2018, both for everyday looks and for special occasions. The truth is that it is not a new trend, but it has been happening for some time. However, experts point out that we still have a lot to discover about it.

Dark colors are worn especially in lipsticks , thus enhancing the natural beauty of the lips. Matte shades such as burgundy and wine red are trending very hard, and we can already see them on the lips of celebrities and it-girls from all over the world.

The best thing about dark colors is that they look great with all kinds of looks, even the most natural ones. The key to showing them off is to get a perfect, totally opaque coverage. In this way, the mouth is super seductive and sensual.

Of course, applying a matte lipstick that looks good, without lumps, it is essential that the lips are well hydrated so that the color is well distributed. In addition, it is convenient to exfoliate them a couple of times a week to remove dead cells.

There is a trick that works wonders to give the lips extra volume: just apply a lipstick a lighter shade in the center of the lips. In this way, it is possible to provide a touch of light that achieves a spectacular XXL volume effect .


If there is a makeup product that this year 2018 is paying special attention to, it is the eyeliner. Although black is the main color, the truth is that there are thousands of different formats and presentations.

The main technique is a fine outline that reaches the end of the eyelid, which is the most elegant. The “cat eye” is also very popular , in which the outline extends almost to the eyelid; the best to achieve a look of the most feline and sensual.

As for the type of eyeliner, there are three options available. On the one hand, the most traditional format, the pencil; the pigment adheres very well, but requires a great technique to apply it well. On the other hand, liquid eyeliner , which is becoming increasingly popular; It is applied with a brush and provides a lot of depth and intensity to the look. And, finally, the most innovative option of all and that is the simplest: the eyeliner with stamp.

To get a really groundbreaking and spectacular look, glitter shadows are sweeping this year 2018.

Ash hair and visible roots

This hair style is sweeping this year 2018, and the truth is that Kim Kardashian has been the forerunner of it. The greyish blonde is very popular . But it does not end there, because there is an addition: the roots must be visible, thus creating the contrast.

Until not long ago, wearing the roots was considered in bad taste; All those women with highlights or with dyed hair, as soon as their hair grew a little, they ran to the hairdresser to dye it again. However, what is being carried now is just the opposite; for example black hair dyed blonde and with visible roots.
