2019 is *finally* coming to an end, and we're so excited for the new year and all the makeup trends it will bring! But first, let's revisit the beauty looks that we saw in the last 12 months. Join our trip down memory lane and let's reminisce the lewks that took over our Insta feeds:
Black and brown-colored eyeliners took a backseat as their colored counterparts took center stage this year. It def made our MOTDs look more interesting!
This year, we loved ~bold~ lipsticks—they're all you really need, TBH.
Bronzed, sunkissed look
This was the year we strived to look like we spent a weekend frolicking on the beach sans the sunburn. Bronzer was our best friend in 2019!
2019 was the year we combined our eyeshadow and eyeliner. If you're looking for a makeup look for this season's festivities, the winged shadow would be your best bet.
If we couldn't score the highly-enviable lit-from-within look through ~good~ skin, we faked it with copious amounts of shimmer instead!Continue reading below ↓
As multipurpose products became more popular, so did monochromatic MOTDs. It was the *fastest* way to look put-together with minimal effort. In fact, we're calling it already—the monochromatic look will still be huge in 2020!
A few years ago, we were all about Instagram brows, aka overly made-up kilay that (we now realize) wasn't a cute look. This year, we just let our brows do their thing—we groomed them while still retaining their natural shape and thickness.
It's official, gloss was trendy again this year. No longer the sticky lip product we used to slather on our pout back in high school, newer formulas had more ~*innovations*~ that allowed our puckers to look plump sans the tackiness.Continue reading below ↓
Bold eyeshadow looks
While we still loved our usual warm colors, we started experimenting more with brighter, more eye-catching shades.
"Fresh lang" MOTD
This year, "less is more" was our motto. We absolutely loved the "woke-up-like-this" look and we were constantly trying to copy the flawless MOTDs of our fave celebs!
