Not all makeup and runway trends are wearable in the real world. That’s a fact. But when they do translate IRL, they are so fun to embrace and play with. These wearable beauty trends and products will assist you with high style while there’s still a chill in the air.
Butter London Glazen Eye Gloss: Sparkly eyes have been a huge trend on the runways. While the this may sound young, messy, or too glittery, trust me. This trend is as fun as it is wearable. You can smudge this product, which has a pudding-like texture, on your lids for an imperfect, sexy look. Everyone should sparkle a little or every once in a while, regardless of their age or style.
L’Oreal Brow Stylist Frame & Set: Full brows are remain a thing. But if you can’t get or grow naturally plush brows, this is the way to fake it! Use a tiny amount of this product on the supplied brush and draw hair strands wherever you need or desire. No one will ever know that it’s makeup and not your real brows. It’ll be our little and beautiful secret. Shhhh….
Urban Decay Vice Lipstick: Dark, vampy lips are a trend that may have you thinking, “Yeah, I can’t pull that off.” But I assure you that yes, you can pull it off and with confidence! These lipsticks, which come in bullet and liquid form as well as in multiple textures, will allow you to get “LOOK AT ME” lips every time. Don’t be shy. There is a shade or six for you.
Smashbox Always On Gel Eyeliner: Super smudged or extreme winged liner are two not-going-anywhere trends for the eyes. This super-saturated, long-lasting gel pencil doesn’t pull and you can use it for a defined line or to smudge and smoke out your lid. #Choices.
L’Oreal Voluminous Miss Manga Rock Mascara: Exaggerated lashes were everywhere in the fashion world. This drugstore tube features a 360° spiked brush so you can hit every single lash, even those tiny, hard-to-reach little buggers. Every time I use it, it’s like my eyes are instantly wider and more awake!
Urban Decay Naked Lip Gloss: Velvety, matte lips remain “in” but glossy lips have been making a comeback. These colors are way flattering, the shine is intense without being sticky, and you get a shot of moisture, which is always essential. Buh bye dry lips.
