Contouring and highlighting the face is a woman’s makeup goal lately. Whether they want to appear thinner and enhance their facial feature, the contour and highlighter sets are becoming a huge trend. Many tutorials on Youtube are also uploaded to teach women with different face shapes on the correct ways to contour and highlight their face.

The smudgy eyes are back as it gives that sexy sophisticated touch to a woman’s face. Apply this makeup for a date night out, parties or even going to the club with your friends. It will definitely make you appear alluring to the eye’s of others too.

 

3.     The No Makeup Look

This year there is a beauty challenge of whether you would dare to go bare by not wearing makeup at all. Alicia Keys rock the bare look but for the ladies who are not comfortable with that, there is always the no-makeup look. Simply put some gloss or lipstick shade that matches your natural lip colour, powder up a bit, put mascara on and a touch of blush for that natural beauty glow.

 

4.     Glitter Lips

Last year, everyone was all about matte lipsticks but we are definitely going for a more glamorous look of the glittered lips. Although you can’t pull this off as your day-to-day look, you can always rock the glittered lips to parties or hitting the club with your girls.
