“Glowy and glossy blush textures are big, so opt for a cream or gel. Terra-cotta will be an unexpectedly popular shade among the usual pinks and corals this year.”


Less Contouring
“Overly contoured faces and intensely highlighted skin have dominated the beauty scene, but we’re seeing a backlash—a return to natural. Now it’s about how we can use contouring andhighlighting subtly, to make us look like ourselves.”

Statement Lips
“Bright red lips are bigger than ever. The key is to keep the color a true primary red and experiment with finishes, from satin to matte to lacquered shine.”
