The start of a new year means a fresh start with everything, including beauty trends, and 2023 will not disappoint. There is a lot of fun makeup looks on the horizon for the year ahead from gorgeous eye makeup to fun-filled lip colors. You’ll also see some looks from years gone by having their moment in the spotlight once again. Whether you prefer something ultra feminine or super edgy here are the fun makeup looks to help you ring in New Year 2023.
Coquette makeup consists of soft pastels, dewy skin, and unique eye makeup that gives you a wide-eyed doll-like look. Think anime eyes with ultra-long dark lashes, white liner along the waterline, and darker liner along the lash line. Concealer is used to completely camouflage any dark circles. Blush is applied to the apples of the cheeks and bridge of the nose, and lips have a dark line with colors fading towards the center. This is such a sweet and youthful look that we’re sure you’ll be seeing it everywhere in 2023.
Confetti Popper Peepers
Ready for some New Year’s glam? Glittering confetti and New Year go hand in hand, and this look seeks to capture all of that fun. Bronze shadow gives your lids a wash of glimmer that’s then topped with sparkling confetti all along and above the crease line. This is a look that screams, “I’m ready to party!”
If you like the classic cat eye, you’re going to love these zebra wings. It gives this old classic a fun new twist. Just create your basic cat eyeliner and then apply a line of white liner directly above it. It accentuates and brightens your eyes perfectly and pairs well with any color shadow. Dark mascara and fluffed brows complete the look.
One beauty trend that’s been dominating social media is a lip stain. The pigments in lip stains do just what the name implies, which is to stain your lips rather than having the color sit on top as it does with traditional lipsticks. This means that your color will last for hours without fading or smudging at all. Lip stains give your lips a more natural flushed look. You can apply your favorite lip balm or clear gloss overtop to keep your lips well-hydrated and kissably soft.
If you lived through the 1990s you’re sure to remember the grunge look that was so popular then. This “slept in our makeup” look with its heavy smokey black liner, glossy soft pink lips, and dewy skin is reminiscent of Avril Lavigne’s signature 90s grunge look. If you’re going for a feminine look with an edge, this is the look for you.
Are matte lip stains not your thing? If you crave a ton of color and shine, give glassy lips a try. Opt for a nude color or something much brighter if you wish. It’s the application technique that makes this look work. Line your lips well with a slightly darker shade of your chosen color and then apply a light coat of color to your lips. Top this with an ultra-high sheen gloss and step back and admire your new glassy lips.
In the coming year your lips are going to really stand out. Dark navy liner with gradient shades of blue and purple shimmer creates a cosmic effect. Finish the looks with glitter to mimic the stars and really catch the eye of everyone you meet.
This look gives you a bold color, but instead of a defined lip line, the color is smudged on purpose to melt the color just beyond your lip line. A high-shine gloss gives your lips a wet look, kind of like melting popsicles. It can take a bit of practice to get the smudging just right, so don’t attempt this look when you’re in a hurry or it may look messy instead of intentional.
At the end of the day don’t forget to remove all that makeup with Ultraceuticals Ultra Clear Foaming Cleanser and Soothing Eye Makeup Remover to keep your skin healthy. And keep your face well hydrated this winter with Ultraceuticals Ultra Rich Moisturiser Cream and Moisturiser Eye Cream.
