Makeup trends in 2015 might just have you clearing out your makeup drawers and bags. A quick look at many of the models show a trend towards little to no makeup. Of course, it’s not all neutral. There’s plenty of room for color as long as you do it right. Think of 2015 as the less is more year.
Eyes And Lips Only
A major trend for 2015 is skipping makeup entirely except for the eyes and lips. Skincare is more important than ever with this trend. Use a good moisturizer to help your skin glow and apply your favorite eye shadow and lipstick. It gives you a natural look with pops of color. If you don’t want to go completely natural, opt for lightly tinted moisturizers which cover some flaws while still looking natural.
As a counter to the more neutral shades of 2015, neon makeup is making a major comeback. The key is to use it sparingly. Neon eyeliner or neon lipstick with more neutral colors for the rest of your makeup is the ideal way to wear this trend. For this one, you’ll need to go bold because a light application isn’t quite as effective.
Plum And Dark Red Shades
With marsala (a deep, red wine shade) being the color of the year, it’s no surprise that marsala, plum and darker reds and pinks are all trending for 2015. Some celebrities are already embracing the trend. Some are focusing just on the eyes or lips while others are wearing the colors on both.
Bright, glossy colors definitely make an impact, but they’re not ideal for all occasions. Get ready to see more matte colors this year. With the darker shades being front and center, matte is actually perfect. The look is more professional and understated for the office while still making a bold statement. Of course, you can always top with clear gloss if you really want to change it up from day to night makeup.
The natural look doesn’t mean you have to skip makeup. The dewy trend means using natural looking makeup along with a luminizing powder or cream. A light application of shimmering bronzer also gives the same effect. This look is perfect all year and makes you look youthful and vibrant.
Unlike some years, the makeup trends of 2015 are easy to achieve. Basically, think natural with just a touch of color on eyes and lips. It’s simple, yet elegant.
