There is what we see on the runways and then there is reality. Instagram helps us translate beauty trends we see on the runways into what we can wear every day. Keeping that in mind, we bring to you some makeup trends that are ruling the beauty world right now, and we are sure they are enough to carry you safely into the New Year!

Pantone violet eyeshadow
 

Pantone violet eyeshadow

It is the perfect winter colour, and we think violet eyeshadow compliments Indian skin tones very well! Keep your cheeks and lips in the same shade range for a monochromatic look.

Neon eyeshadow

Neon green eyeshadow sure packs a punch and don’t shy away from the bright colour. When you keep the rest of your makeup nude, a bright pop of eyeshadow looks great!

Draping
 

Draping

The technique of extending your blush beyond the tops of your cheekbones, and curving it around your temple and ending it above your brow bone is called ‘draping’. It is all the rage on the runways and can create quite a dramatic look.

Glass skin
 

Glass skin

Beautiful, glossy skin is the best makeup one can wear and many International Fashion shows have models walking the ramp in high-shine skin. This is achieved by prepping your skin with moisturiser and just applying serum and highlighter.

Brown lips
 

Brown lips

It is not a trend until Rihanna makes it one. She very casually wore chocolate brown lipstick and it became an overnight trend. It is the perfect shade for the coming colder season, and there is one to suit everyone!

Glossy lips

Ultra-glossy lips are also taking over the Instagram world. Pair it with smokey eyes and glassy skin, and it becomes one helluva attractive look.

Underliner

Add a swish of colour just to your lower lash line in an electric colour for this sultry look. You can experiment with different coloured underliner!
