AUTUMN WINTER 2018/19 EYE MAKEUP TRENDS
I’m not starting the autumn winter 2018/19 makeup report with the eye makeup trends just because we are getting ready for the night out with our friends. But because the eye makeup is in the spotlight this season. In fact, all you need for autumn winter 2018/19 to make a fashionable makeup is something from the eye makeup department. Good news if you can only afford one thing, right?
So what are the autumn winter 2018/19 eye makeup trends then?
EYESHADOWS FOR FALL WINTER 2018/19
Let us have a look at the eyeshadows first. If you take a closer look when scrolling down the Insta feed, you will notice there are 3 type of girls out there. The pastel princess, the rock chic and after shower girl. Read girls who merely love gloss and could wear it anywhere.
PASTEL AND PINK EYESHADOWS
The number one eyeshadows for autumn winter 2018/19 come in bright pastel colours. Any colour from the Winter pastels palette and also Neon palette. Check these palettes in my AW18/19 Colour report over here.
That said, if you can afford only one eyeshadow this season and not the entire palette in pretty bright colours, then get a pink eyeshadow. If you can afford 2 things, then get a light blue eyeshadow and a pink eyeliner. Yes, a pink one. Don’t worry; I’m explaining all this about the pink eyeliner after we check the new modern smokey eye.
ROCK CHIC MODERN SMOKEY EYE
Smokey eye is still in fashion for autumn winter 2018/19. Not to say it’s more fashionable than any season since we were in the high school. But wait! It’s not your signature black smokey eye that is in fashion this season! No! Instead of black, we wear a very dark metallic shade of midnight blue, chocolate, deep purple or dark grey now. Well, to be honest, it looks black to me.
Anyway, if you go for a black smokey eye, then be sure to use a metallic eyeliner.
Oh, and we don’t blend the shades anymore. Instead, we press the eyeshadow over the smudged pencil with a brush.
To finish the look, we gently buff out the outer edges of the eye makeup. Using small circles. Ps. Don’t try to do this if you don’t have a soft and fluffy makeup brush. It’s this brush from the widget below that you need.
Yes, eye gloss is a thing. Honestly, I have had only one eye gloss so far. A pink one from Chanel. But somehow I wasn’t really a fan of it. Nevertheless, I’m giving this fashion trend a try this season. By the way, do you happen to own any of these eye glosses?
AW 2018/19 EYELINER TRENDS
Here is how to do the eyeliner in 2018. There are 3 lining trends that are extremely powerful this season. Apparently the black one, I mean how not when the rock chic from the 90s is back. And the metallic one. But no, not the 80s blue. This time around is all about the champagne hues. Lastly, there is a bright pink eyeliner. Or sometimes red and violet.
You already know the metallic gelish eyeliner is my favourite one this season. I’m currently using this one from Marc Jacobs Beauty, and I just love it. Truly, it’s the best eyeliner I have ever had. So smooth and surprisingly not easy to smudge. In fact, it doesn’t smudge at all. It stays there where I draw it the entire day and the next morning. That is when I party all night.
Another thing worth mentioning. For fall winter 2018/19 the cat-eye flick is not fashionable anymore. It got updated. Now we end the eyeliner with a dot.
Now, the mascara. The more mascara, the better. I see you, Zala! You must be thrilled right now. Or maybe not as this means you will have to buy a new mascara every single week.
Ps. Here are my favourite mascaras of all time.
By the way, the blue mascara is fashionable again.
GEMS AND GLITTER
Lastly the gems and glitter. It’s fashionable if you glue a gem on your eyelids. Certainly not an everyday makeup, but since it’s the party season, I thought you might want to know. Check the widget below to see where to get some cute gems.
