From minimal makeup to dark smokey eyes and everything in between, we bring you the biggest beauty trends of the year gone by.
2018 has been quite a year when it comes down to beauty trends. From Hollywood to Bollywood, not a lot has changed in the makeup department. While the year saw a few great weddings, we clearly had our eyes on the glowy faces of our favourite celebrity brides. From Meghan Markle’s barely-there bridal makeup to Deepika Padukone’s signature kohl eyes, we have curated a list of the best beauty trends that were tried, tested and approved by the gorgeous style divas around the world. What’s better than that, right?
Glow baby glow
Do you really need makeup if you have flawless skin like Meghan Markle? The former Suits actress’ gorgeous glowy skin took away all the limelight on her wedding day. The Duchess kept her makeup minimal for the royal wedding with just a little mascara with hints of blush tones on the cheeks. The world called it ‘the no-makeup – makeup look’ before the new royal stole the show and literally made the trend synonymous to her name.
Suit your skin
Smooth, matte skin was definitely the ‘look of the year’. From Priyanka Chopra to Sara Ali Khan, everyone was seen sporting this makeup trend. Flawless matte base with light brown eyeshadow and soft smokey kohl drew attention to the eyes. A hint of contour and nude/brown lips accentuated the look.
Style tip: Look gorgeous in the nude makeup by opting for a lipstick that is two shade darker than your actual lip colour.
Shine bright like a diamond, literally!
Strobing – the new contouring of the beauty industry. Glowy blushed base is taken a notch higher by highlighting the high points of the face. This is perfect to get the gorgeous glow. From Kim Kardashian to Janhvi Kapoor, this technique has gained popularity in the year gone by. The Dhadak debutante was spotted multiple times shining bright with her flawless skin.
Let your eyes talk
While a lot of divas opted for nude, minimal makeup, actresses like – Deepika Padukone, Anushka Sharma, Aditi Rao Hydari let their eyes do all the talking. Deep, dark smokey kohl was definitely the choice for most of them this year.
This trend clearly dominated all the beauty looks in the year gone by. With minimal makeup or dark lips, well-groomed brows was a must-have for most divas in 2018.
Stick to the classics
While a lot of divas opted for trendy looks, some of them stuck to the classics. A simple base, winged liner and red lips was an immediate choice for most of the leading celebrities over the world.
