Skip the predictable vivid pink shadows and wear the colour on your lashes instead. Go with a white mascara on your lower lashes because it’s universal and goes with every other colour.
Dark Ombre Lips (Alice and Olivia)
This dark, vampy gradient lip is a twist on the conventional K-beauty gradient lip trend. The usual suspect tends to start with a concentrated shade at the centre of the lips before graduating to a paler one. While this ombre look that’s the reverse gives you the effect of a fuller pout, especially when it’s topped with a shiny gloss.
Doll-Like Blusher (Angus Chiang)
Apply blushers in neon, highlighter shades to the apples of your cheeks to make them pop. More is more when you’re packing this blusher onto the highest peaks of your cheekbones. It’s edgy with a side of femininity.
Squiggly Liners (Arthur Arbesser)
Bare it all when it comes to the rest of your face and let your eyes be the centre of attention when you sport electric, wavy liners. Your lines don’t have to look exactly like the ones on Arthur Arbesser’s models. The whole fun factor in creating this look lies in experimenting with your favourite coloured liners and shapes.
Cool-Toned Shadows (Badgley Mischka)
In a time where warm-toned shadows are all the rage, set yourself apart from the norm by wearing cool-toned shadows that everyone’s been sleeping on. Yes, you can still keep your coral blushes and lips.
No-Makeup Makeup (Berluti)
The “no-makeup makeup” look is definitely an oldie but a goodie. We recommend a “foundcealer” to achieve this look if you have any blemishes to cover up. It’s basically a concealer that has the strong coverage of a concealer but the comfort of a foundation – one such product is Giorgio Armani’s Power Fabric Concealer.
Thickened Wings (Bibhu Mohapatra)
On days where you can’t be bothered to perfect a sharp wing, just grab a chunky black crayon liner, chalk it up to it being a “F/W’19 beauty trend”, and call it a day. It saves you a bunch of time and boosts your street cred.
'60s Twiggy-Inspired Lashes (Chika Kisada)
It’s 2019 and Twiggy’s iconic exaggerated undereye lashes are great again. It really takes you under five minutes to perfect this look that gives you the illusion of bigger eyes. Simply create tiny flicks of black with the black liner that you use daily.
Under-Eye Shadow (Fashion East)
We think that Fashion East might’ve just discovered a new way to conceal heavy undereye bags. When even high-impact concealers can’t shield the dark rings around your eyes, turn to pigmented vibrant shadows instead.
Eyeshadow, But In Abstract Shapes (Francesca-Liberatore)
Eyeshadow application techniques do not need to be limited to just blending the colours out seamlessly on your lids. You read it here first – abstract shapes in contrasting colours are “in” this season.
