Makeup junkies, brace yourselves! The moment is finally here—if you’re excited to know what 2020 has in store for you, then STOP everything and read this NOW.

While 2019 was big on fresh, dewy skin, colourful eye makeup, rosegold tinted cheeks and silver inner corner, to name a few, the year 2020 has bigger and better makeup trends that promise to take your glamour quotient a few notches up.

We asked celebrity makeup experts to predict makeup trends for the year 2020. Here’s all the dope you need!

 

Neon makeup

Think green, yellow, pink and blue—2019 was a great start for including neon colours in your makeup. And, the good news is that this makeup trend is only going to get bigger and better in 2020.

“One trend I feel is going to continue this year is pops of neon. Try a neon green or pink on the inner corner of your eyes to add a playful twist to your neutral looks or a neon berry stain for a juicy-lip effect”, says makeup artist Sonam Chandna Sagar.

 

Lip stains

Move on from creamy mattes. Makeup artists predict that lip stains are going to dominate 2020. While we have seen this trend take centre-stage on international runways, it is yet to dominate the Indian beauty circuit.

“Up until now, dark matte lipsticks ruled the red carpets and runways. 2020 is going to change that with lip stains that have a softer effect, look super dreamy and natural,” says celebrity makeup artist Shraddha Mishra.

Another makeup maven Sneha Joramie Rathi validates the stained lips trend. She says, “Lip stains are going to rule in 2020. Simply dab a lip tint or lip stain on your lips using your fingers to create a soft drain of colour.”

 

Studs

Studs

The year 2020 is going to be a treat for makeup maximalists. While we’ve seen the use of studs in makeup on the ramps, this year will actually see more real-women sporting them.

Celebrity makeup expert Zoya Shaikh says, “Tiny diamond studs or pearls on the lids can help create a glamorous statement look. Although studs sound OTT, it is actually very doable and easy to pull off. Apart from that, using high pigment glitter particles on a soft nude eye shadow is also going to make you stand out.”

 

Floating eyeliner

If you are big on eyeliners, then 2020 is going to help bring out your experimental side. Makeup artist Sonam Chandna Sagar says, “2020 is going to be all about Artisanal Eyeliner. The cult wing liner just got a modern makeover. Play with floating, dotted or even asymmetrical placements and let your inner artist shine”.

Another celebrity makeup expert, Lekha Gupta too believes that floating eyeliner is going to rule in 2020. She says, “You can already see a lot of artists sporting this look internationally. It’s about drawing a coloured or even a black liner not along the lash line but way above it, defining your crease instead”.

 

Blurred velvet lips

Love sporting a statement pout? Try blurred velvet lips in 2020. “To bring this lip trend to life, reach for a matte lipstick and instead of over-lining your lips, diffuse it lightly to create a soft blur. Add more definition using a lip pencil if required, but keep the line softly blurred”, says makeup expert Sneha Joramie Rathi.
