I hope you had a fantastic weekend! For a change, we had a quiet one. :) We just spent some time with family, but were mostly at home, doing nothing, which was great. Jan and I had some fun with photos of Kayla! I'll share them here some time.
On to today's post. It's a custom on the Couch to talk about the predicted makeup, hair and nail trends for the year at the beginning of every year. We'll focus on makeup today and talk about hair and nails Wednesday and Friday.
If you've been following the blog for a while, you'll notice that a lot of the trends are return offenders! Most of the big ones this year, were big last year and the year before too. Which is great, because you probably have the right colours and tools in your makeup kit already. These looks were seen by various designers on various runways. Lets have a look. :)
Pair the coloured lips with lighter, nude made up eyes and you're good to go.
Notice how little makeup she has on the rest of her face? The fresh faced, no-makeup makeup look is back too! But we'll talk about that little further on in the post.
Remember that pink can make your eyes look bloodshot though!! :)
Did you pick up on the lack of blush in the last two looks? Keep a lookout for this trend in many of the other pictures featured today. Apparently going blush free will be in this year.
This one is another returning trend and will never go out of fashion in my opinion. The cat eye is a classic, classy look, and probably always will be.
You can pair it with nude lips and a pop of colour on the lid, or go for the classic pin-up look with light eyeshadow and red lips.
As always, the classic red lip will be big in 2014. You can never go wrong with a perfectly red pout! Check out which shade will go best with your skintone here.
This is one of those looks the Hollywood starlets love (because it's such a fabulous look for going out!!), so be sure to keep a lookout for this one on the red carpets.
You can rim the eyes completely, like in the picture, and leave it messy and grungy, or you can opt for more subtly and perfectly lined eyes, as long as you use black.
(Just keep in mind that rimming your eyes completely with black will make them seem smaller!!)
Once again a trend that will probably feature in the fashion world forever!! I know I can't do anything without my black liner...
Go for bolder designs on the top or bottom lid, but keep the rest of the face toned down if you follow this trend. You don't want to look too overdone!!
Keep your face au naturale, with only hints of makeup to follow this trend. The focus should be on flawless, glowing skin.
Again, keep the rest of the face nude, especially if you're going for the super bright orange lipstick.
Which trend will you be rocking this year? Let me know!
Stay beautiful and be kind to animals,
