"The bolder, the better" will be your new M.O. when it comes to choosing lipstick in 2018. Although a bright lip has always been the easiest way to add color to your look, this year you’ll see more and more ’80s-inspired brights in the spotlight like Saorise Ronan’s fuchsia lipstick.
And while liquid lipsticks aren’t going anywhere, traditional bullets are also making a comeback. Consider Kylie Jenner’s—the unofficial queen of liquid lipsticks—new Silver Series classic lipsticks as proof. For a similar shade to Ronan’s bright pink, try Bite Beauty’s Amuse Bouche Lipstick in Sangria ($26; sephora.com).
Negative Space Eyeliner
Get your black eyeliner ready. While a cat eye is a staple, switch things up this year by giving your sharp flick a new look. Leaving the inside of the wing unfilled for a negative space effect is just as easy to do, but makes your usual liner look so much cooler.
To create a similar look to Bella Hadid’s, reach for a liquid eyeliner with an ultra-fine felt tip such as Dior’s Diorshow Art Pen ($33; dior.com). This applicator gives you more control so that drawing on a clean, straight line is almost effortless.
Rihanna may not have invented gold makeup, but she’s definitely made you want to wear shimmer all over your face. Her Fenty Beauty’s Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter in Trophy Wife ($34; sephora.com) is the perfect gold pigment that can be swept across the eyelid as a shadow, or on the cheekbone and brow bone as a highlighter.
Dabbing a color on the inner corners of your eyes is to 2018 as what reverse eyeliner was to 2017. Lining the inner corners of your eyes with white eyeliner is a trick that makeup artists have relied on for years to instantly make eyes appear larger and more awake, a shimmery color on the inner corners takes this technique one step further.
You can go for a metallic silver like Yara Shahidi’s makeup artist Emily Cheng did by using a similar silver shade from Chanel’s Architectonic Eyeshadow Palette ($80; chanel.com), or pick a more vibrant shadow for an unexpected flash of color.
