The first makeup look that you will be seeing a lot throughout this year will be focused on experimenting with embellishments.

Ready to really make a statement this 2023? By the looks of it, vinyl lips, or statement lips, are going to be one of the hottest makeup trends this year.

Makeup trends 2023: Blush baby
Have you heard that blush has made a comeback? In 2023, we will see blush worn in many different kinds of ways. It can be applied as a face contour, or angled all the way to the temple, and even spread from the temples to the highest point of your cheekbones. There are currently many blush-inspired takes trending. From the natural “sun-kissed” look, to techniques such as the “sunburn blush” and “blush draping”. All of which have already entered the red carpet. So, what are you waiting for?
Back to the past with Y2K makeup
Am I the only one obsessed with the Y2K trends? I mean, what’s not to love about crop tops and butterfly hair clips? Definite must-have’s! And how can you ever complete your 2000s outfit without the perfect makeup look to go with it? In 2023, we will be seeing a lot of looks featuring signature Y2k makeup elements like bright and bold colours and everything shimmers. It’s all about getting creative and letting go a bit. Glossy lips and icy blue eyeshadows, here we come!
Bleached brows as a makeup trend
Can’t say that this is my favourite look, but it is trending in 2023, so how can I not include it? The bleached brows trend was popularized by Kendall Jenner, and it’s certainly one for risk-takers. Celebrities like Bella and Gigi Hadid have been seen wearing the trendy look, and it definitely calls to high-fashion. Many runway looks feature bleach brows, so if you want to feel like a model, then you know what to do! And if you don’t want to reach for the bleach, you can always just use concealer on your eyebrows to resemble the look.
Luminous skin is so in this year
Hello, it’s time to get your glow on! The favoured luminous skin trend is not going anywhere for 2023. Say goodbye to mattes, and embrace liquid highlighters and serum foundations. Such creamy formulas will result in a dewy skin look, combining plenty of highlighter to give you the shine you very well know you deserve. This year, be on the lookout for liquid, creamy and glossy formulas. Such will get rid of dullness and improve your natural skin glow.
Barbiecore makeup trend 2023
I love love love this trend! The Barbiecore trend was huge last year, thanks to the news of the upcoming Barbie film starting Margot Robbie. And this super girly and stylish trend is certainly staying for 2023! Barbiecore is continuing to inspire many mesmerizing makeup looks, that leave you dreaming about them long after you have saved their images on your phone. Think of bold hot pink—vibrant eyeshadow, graphic eyeliner and soft candy blush. Pink will add exuberance to any makeup look, and will certainly be a colour we will be seeing a lot of this year.
