Seasonal changes often bring mixed feelings, leaving us unable to decide on the outfits, shades, and makeup looks that are appropriate for transitional weather. Thankfully, there’s no need for confusion this year. From bold, impactful colors to all things shimmer and shine, this season’s makeup trends are as clear as ever, defining the looks we will be seeing everywhere in the upcoming months.
To that end, here are some of the best and biggest makeup trends you might want to try out this season as well:
Bold smokey eyes
Sultry smokey eyes are an all-time favorite, representing the ideal glam or nighttime look you can never go wrong with. But instead of the classic grays and blacks, we have mostly seen up until now, this season the smokey eye is all about color, mostly deep emerald green shades and even some bolder blue hues. If you’re feeling daring this season, combine a vibrant smokey eye with a nude lip and a picture-perfect base, for a sexy and impactful makeup look that is bound to knock everyone off their feet.

Shiny glittery lids
A more impactful and daring makeup trend that came from our favorite American bloggers, all things glitter, sparkle, and shine is about to dominate the upcoming seasons. While some decided on a beautiful gold or silver glitter pigment all over their lids, others took it a step further by combining a shiny nude eyeshadow base with small stick-on gems for the ultimate sparkly eyes look. If you want to have all eyes on you this season, either one of these stunning shiny eye makeup looks will undoubtedly sparkle in the sunlight, helping to brighten up your entire face in an instant.
On the other hand, Australian beauty gurus are still nurturing their love for simplicity and natural beauty, creating the trend of an enviously flawless complexion we’ll be seeing everywhere this season. Starting the look off with a buttery primer that perfectly melts into their skin, Aussies tend to apply a light layer of quality foundation to even out their complexion, and then finish with a touch of warm bronzer to sculpt out their best features. If you want to recreate this gorgeous look as well, you could also buy the finest cosmetics online in Australia that are not only highly pigmented and long-lasting, but also made by some of the most famous and trusted brands.
Bold blush looks
Blush is an essential aspect of any makeup look, effortlessly giving you a bright, glowing, and healthy complexion. However, instead of just a hint of a flush on the top of the cheeks, blush is bolder than ever this season, applied all the way from the brow bone to the temples and the apples of the cheeks. To try out this impactful look, keep the rest of your makeup simple, and opt for a peachy or light pink shade of blush for a more balanced look overall. If you’re feeling experimental, you can also choose two or three shades of blush in a similar color, and then perfectly blend them out to achieve a wonderful ‘watercolor’ effect.
If glittery lids are too attention-grabbing for you, another glowing trend is set out to be big this season. Whether you opt for a glittery glow or just a slight sheen, highlighters will be applied all over, from the brow bone and the inner corner of the eyes to the cheekbones and the bridge of the nose, and even slightly on top of your collarbones. No matter which aspect of your face you’d like to accentuate, don’t be afraid to grab a fluffy brush and pack on a shimmery highlighter for that otherworldly glow.
Peachy nude lips
Nude lips are always a favorite, but even more so this season, when other eye and face makeup trends are so impactful on their own. However, instead of pink, beige, and brown shades of nude that we’ve worn so far, this season you might want to opt for a neutral peachy lipstick shade that perfectly matches your skin tone, for an added cool factor. If you wish, you could also complete this lip look with a swipe of sheer lip gloss, to fully embody the season’s glowy tendencies.
As we were forced to tone down or even entirely forgo makeup last year, it’s no wonder we finally want to experiment with all the possibilities this art form offers. This season is all about daring and eye-catching looks, and there are certainly some interesting makeup trends in the wonderful list above you’ll want to try right away.
