These 2016 Makeup Trends are definitely intriguing and eye-catching. They were spotted at the most recent runways and they promise to stay for a while.
I decided to compile the top five 2016 makeup trends in this post by spotlighting some of the most famous Instagram Makeup Artists featuring these trends.
If you want to achieve such trends you must follow them on their IG accounts so you could keep up with their tutorials and tips.
The Top Five 2016 Makeup Trends
Contouring gives way to Strobing which concentrates on using illuminating products giving you a dewy and more youthful glow.
Citing PopSugar: “Strobing focuses exclusively on highlighter, applied where light would naturally hit your face (so, your cheekbones, brow bones, the center of your forehead, down your nose, and on your chin.) Dabbing on these soft, shimmery shades will make your complexion look radiant, fresh, and healthy while giving you an ethereal oomph that is sure to turn heads.”
Amrezy is one of my favorite IG Makeup Artists. To me, her signature is that always perfect highlighting. I chose this pic because it shows the strobing technique in all its splendour.
Used: Armani luminous silk foundation mixed with CoverFx cream foundation. Nars creamy concealer mixed with @urbandecaycosmetics naked concealer. @anastasiabeverlyhills cream contour kit set with @katvondbeauty powder contour kit @maccosmetics “Peaches” blush and “Oh Darling” highlighter mixed with @bobbibrown “Bronze Glow” highlighter. @maccosmetics eyeshadow “Nylon” on the tear duct.
2. Blue Makeup
Blue eye makeup is definitely eye-catching and it will be a big trend in 2016. The key relies on accentuating specific areas, meaning, if you are concentrating on your eyes, you would focus on corners, eyelashes, eyeliner or lid. If you are daring and avant-garde, you can go for some blue lips, just like Lupita Nyong’o did at the London premiere of Star Wars.
Kelvin Possidônio is a professional makeup artist and a tutor from Brazil. He chose to emphasize his eyes with an electric blue eyeshadow.
Maryamnyc is a makeup artist who is always innovating and does not mind sharing her techniques through her awesome IG videos.
Used: @emcosmetics liquid liner in Navy Script, @eyeko Midnight Blue black magic mascara and @flutterlashesinc Sierra lashes.
Glitter makeup is already showing in many tutorials going from “…graphic cat-eyes to subdued metallic lids. Whether you prefer a touch of shimmer in the inner corners or full-on dramatic smoke…” Refinery29 says.
Here I chose Maryamnyc again, because I totally love this glittery eye makeup. It is perfect for anyone, because it features just the right amount of glitter, and it is super easy to achieve.
Used: @lorealparisusa silkissime liner in Silver topped with @urbandecaycosmetics glitter liner in Glam Rock.
4. Cherry Pout
We saw the models on the runway “appear bold and beautiful with those cherry red lips and the slightly frizzy half ponytails.” as stated on Fashionisers.com. To achieve a more natural look, you can pair it with neutral eyeshadows and perhaps a catty eyeliner.
Love how Yariszbeth adopted the trend. She is a NY Makeup Artist who is famous for her neutral looks. I think this is actually the first time she wears Red on IG, and we are certainly loving it! She did not state what shade she is wearing but I got you! I highly recommend Legend from Paula Dorf, above featured.
5. Bronzed Eyes
This is another trend we saw on the runway. I personally think this makeup trend is perfect for any season. You can wear a bronze eye shadow all around the eye by itself, or you can instead combine it with smoky eyes, if you want to add more drama to the look.
Just like NayeOna did. I love her always unique approach. She is a creator and it is always transforming. Her style is very dramatic and eye-catching.
Shadow: @meltcosmetics dark matter stack and @strobecosmetics world eater.
