It’s 2016 and it feels bloody weird. It’s also my birthday this month which feels double weird – I’m going to be 26 (insert blushing shocked whatsapp face).
I wanted to show you my predictions for the make up trends that will be big this year – then at the end of the year I can see whether I was right or not! In 2015 there were lots of new make up launches…primers, mascaras and new fangled liquid lipsticks. Being a keen user of Instagram I can show you what I think what looks will be big this year and how to get them :).
GLITTER ALL ROUND –
Eyeshadow looks featuring glitter and glitter eyeliners have been big in the second half of this year. Heck, even glitter BEARDS have taken off! This is a great easy way to build a party look or a make up look for a special occasion – a simple matte eyeshadow blended into the crease with a glitter eyeliner is a quick way to create a chic make up look.
Or if you’re looking for something more dramatic you could use a glitter pigment or loose glitter to press onto your eyelids…you can use a gentle make up glue or eyeshadow primer for the glitter to stick to. If you are using an eyeshadow with glitter particles in it you could spray your eyeshadow brush with a setting spray to wet the brush and make the pigment stronger.

MATTE LIPS –
Matte lipstick is having a BIG thing now. This is partly down to the likes of Kylie Jenner pumping up her lips and applying what seems to be a nude paint on them (not entirely sure why this is so popular) but I think this is a trend that is here to stay.
Overlining your lips will help to make them look larger and using a matte liquid lipstick with a lighter lipstick patted onto the centre of the bottom lip will help to create this look.
