Trust Me–You're Going to Want to Try All of These Trending Makeup Looks

It can be so easy to fall into a makeup rut. While we love a dependable, simple makeup look that we can default to time and time again, it can be great to hit refresh on your makeup look and try something different.

We've spotted some key trending makeup looks that are bound to make you want to dig out your makeup bag and experiment. Here are seven trending makeup looks we're obsessed with right now. Be prepared to have your makeup bag at the ready.

1. Minimalist Lips

Bold lips are back. The key to keeping it looking cool is to bare the rest of your makeup back to let your lip colour do the talking. We love this fuchsia pink hue paired with a white shirt.

A deep red always looks luxurious. Opt for a matte lipstick finish to create that crisp application with added staying power.

A red lipstick is always timeless, but we particularly love an orange-red lipstick for summer.

These lipsticks come in powder form to lend a suede effect to your lips.

A liquid lipstick provides a velvet finish, and this formula won't dry out your lips.

2. Bold Brows

Brows have been a key beauty focal point for a few years now, and big, brushed up brows aren't going anywhere. Fill in brows with a fine-tipped brow pencil to add definition without any heaviness.

Brushed-up brows look good with any look. Use a brow spool brush to diffuse any obvious brow pencil marks for a soft-focus look.

Give brows a healthy-looking sheen with a conditioning eyebrow gel to tame brows and nourish.

Growing out your brows? This eyebrow conditioner strengthens brow hairs for healthy hair growth.

3. Sunkissed Blusher

Blusher is big news for summer, and the placement can totally transform your look. Place onto the highest points of your cheekbones and buff up towards your temples for a sun-kissed effect.

Place a lighter blusher all over your cheeks before applying a darker hue to the centre of your cheeks. This creates a multi-dimensional, more natural flush.

Sweep across your nose to mimic a sun kissed look, without the sun damage (we're wearing SPF, always).

For bendable and buildable colour, a cream blush is a winner.

This liquid blush is so easy to apply and leaves cheeks with a subtle sheen.

4. Eye Shadow Haze

Eye shadow looks have become more subtle but still colourful. Think bold colours with a translucent, watercolour effect. It looks just as good with a wash of a single colour over the lid or blended in with a second hue.

We love how this sheer lilac eye shadow blends into the blush.

Mix and match unexpected colours. This soft lavender  pairs well with a muted brown to add definition to the eyes.

5. Winged Liner

There's a reason why winged eyeliner is still going strong. It opens up the eyes and can be done in so many different ways to suit your eye shape and style. Go for a black liquid liner for a defined cat eye, or opt for a brown eye shadow on the outer lid for a softer, smokey wing.

If you find eyeliner too heavy on your lids, then start from the outer third of your eye as your draw your wing.

A gel liner is the most long-wearing formula for drawing winged liner. 

6. Glossy Lips

Gone are the days of sticky lip glosses. With so many lip oils launching lately, glossy lips are back on the agenda. There are so many to choose from, whether it's a tinted lip oil or a sheer, colourless one.

Glowing skin and glossy lips? It's a perfect match.

You'll find one of these in every beauty editor's bag.

7. Bright Eyeliner

We're seeing bright, minimal eyeliner all over our feeds right now. It's a fun way to dip your toe into colour without applying it all over your eyelids. We're obsessed with this sunshine yellow hue.

Blue looks vibrant against brown eyes.

Draw outside the lines and experiment with placement. Katie Jane Hughes leads the way with this  electric blue wing.

A long-wear eyeliner will keep your liner shining bright all day long.
