Top Makeup Trends to Watch in 2024, According to Makeup Artists

Top Makeup Trends to Watch in 2024

Today, there are some common misconceptions that makeup is used to hide the flaws.

But are you sure about this? 

Makeup can be a fun hobby, and you can use it to express your creativity.

It can become a powerful tool that you can use to enhance your overall style and aesthetics. 

Makeup can provide you with a way to show your experimental way.

Undoubtedly, the natural no-makeup look will stand out forever, but 2024’s beauty trends are stealing the spotlight. 

The playful beauty is back with the bold colors and whimsical designs.

The classic red shade is taking on a new life while the use of glitters and iridescent colors are taking the makeup to new heights. 

There are huge possibilities, and to ensure you don’t miss out on these trends, here are some hottest makeup trends that can help you get a new look.

Shiny lips are cool, and glowing skin is great, but this year’s trend takes it to a whole new level.

It’s called “glass skin,” and it’s been getting a lot of love on TikTok. 

Basically, it means your skin looks super smooth and shiny, almost like glass.

Hiromi Ueda, who works with Armani Beauty, says she loves the “glazed look.” 

This means your skin is glowing, your eyebrows are neat, and your mascara makes your lashes look long and defined.

But it’s not just about the skin.

This trend also includes glossy lips and eyelids, sparkly highlighter, and shimmery colors to make your whole face glow. 

Even makeup artist Gucci Westman is into it, saying she likes it when your forehead shines a bit.

Pat McGrath showed off this trend big time at the Maison Margiela fashion show, where the models’ skin looked flawless and shiny like porcelain.

It’s all about that radiant, glossy look!

Bold Blush

If you often put on a lot of makeup, you might like this trend.

It’s all about making a statement with your blush.

Instead of just a subtle touch, you can really go for it. 

You can apply blush in different ways, like softly for a dreamy effect or more boldly to make a statement. 

Last year, heavy blush was a big trend in makeup styles, whether it was for a fresh-faced look or a wintry vibe.

The key is to put the blush in the right place to make your face look even better. 

You can put it on the apples of your cheeks for a cute look, or blend it with your eyeshadow for a more intense style. 

You can also try different colors of blush to change things up.

Orange tones give a warm finish, while purple shades give a cooler, moodier vibe.

Pantone said peach fuzz is the color for 2024, but McGrath thinks blue will be big.

She thinks we’ll see a lot of blue makeup this year. 

Last year’s mermaid-inspired looks are still around, and blue eyeshadow is a simple way to try this trend. 

Some fashion shows featured blue lipsticks, from bright cobalt to softer grayish tones.

You might think blue makeup is only for the catwalk, but you can use it in your everyday makeup routine, even with mascara. 

You can try it yourself with YSL’s Lash Clash Mascara in Electric Blue, which gets bolder with each coat.

If you’re unsure about blue, try darker shades for a moodier feel.

Classic Red

Sometimes, to move forward, it’s good to look back at the classics.

That’s exactly what’s happening with red lipstick this season.

If you haven’t used your red lipstick in a while, it might be time to dig it out again. 

Even Taylor Swift thinks so!

She wore her classic red lip with a bit of shine at the 2024 Grammys. 

And she wasn’t alone—lots of famous personalities such as Laverne Cox, Jameela Jamil, and Olivia Rodrigo also rocked glossy or matte red lips at the Grammys.

Remember M.A.C.’s famous Ruby Woo lipstick?

It was like every young makeup lover’s favorite. 

Well, this year, designers like Dion Lee, Mugler, and Alexander McQueen reminded us that a red lip is a timeless symbol of elegance.

You can wear it matte for a bold statement, glossy for a glamorous look, or as a lip stain for something more subtle.

Whether you go classic or add a modern twist, the red lip is back in style!

In the spring/summer 2024 fashion shows, like Dior and Comme De Garcons, they showed off a cool style: black lipstick! 

At the Dior show, the makeup artist Peter Philips made a sexy lip look by blending black eyeliner in the middle of the lips for a soft, dark effect. 

If you like bold looks, you can go full goth and wear black lipstick all over your lips. 

But if that’s too much, you can still try the trend by using a dark brown or purple lip liner to shape your lips and then add a natural lipstick or gloss on top, giving you a ’90s vibe.
