I’m with Christine on this one. Glad to see creamier lipsticks, like MAC’s Love Me formula, which feels good on the lips and doesn’t feather at all.

I am also a fan of the creamier lipstick trend! I also like that lighter coverage base products are more of a trend; that’s what I’ve always enjoyed and it’s nice to have more of a selection to choose from now.

I love that many are embracing a more realistic, far less theatrical instagram makeup look… Rock it if it works for you, but for me and where I feel my personal canvas is at these days, it’s definitely paired down and much more subtle.

I really like the trend of smaller, monochrome palettes. There’s something just so aesthetically pleasing to me about 5-9 different shades of green all gathered together in the palm of my hand.

Like you, it’s the return to more luminous, glossy, and natural finish lips as opposed to the chalky liquid matte lipstick trend. I’m not against a good matte lip, but not shriveled up painful looking lips! Besides, I love throwing on lipgloss over matte lipsticks!

I’m very happy with the movement away from matte lips, and I’m loving seeing more glosses and glossy finishes, shimmers, glitters, and metallics.

I’m adoring the green eyeshadow trend.

I really have embraced the more glowy skin trend. I have older skin and it has been dry for about 30 years. It is easy to look dry and cakey after finishing your base and I have always preferred a more dewy glow. It had been hard to find but with the trend to more glow more foundations and powders give that glowy look.

Another makeup lover glad to see the move away from the matte lip to something creamier and more flattering, IMO (and far more comfortable to wear).

Looks like a trend – big yes to creamy, luminous lip color, and I love having some real choice in warm green eyeshadows after a long drought. Also like the satin finishes I’m seeing more often in blushes, like Clinique Cheek Pops.

I really like how it is now okay to do your makeup in a way that makes you happy. Of course, one could always do this before, but I feel that it is now much more acceptable to show up everyday in soft glam (as I do. Lol) or natural, etc. Makeup is meant to make you feel good!

I’m liking the mores simple makeup looks but especially the ones by some professional makeup artists that create the illusion of lift to the face with the makeup placement. However I hate when this look is achieved with face tapes.

I really love people taking inspirationfrom shows like Euphoria! The looks are creative but simpler too. I love doing complicated stuff that requires a lotta attention to detail because I find it fun, but it’s not always the most flattering look (on me specifically). But wow does a swipe of shimmering shadows across the eyelid look bomb on me, especially a duo chrome type shadow. I also love that I can glitter/ neon/ shimmer out or draw clouds and flowers on my face and wear it out and about and it’s whatever. I’m extra af but hate attention so people wearing this type of makeup out seems to have normalized my preferred look 😂

I’m not sure if this is a trend but I have noticed that more attention is being paid to foundations with sheer to medium coverages. I see more reviews and applications of tinted moisturizers and the like on YouTube than I ever have in the past. I think some reviewers have come to realize that many of their subscribers do not wear full coverage foundation, especially on the daily.
The move away from liquid lipsticks is appreciated too!
I thought there was going to be constant releases of cooler and neutral shades in eyeshadow palettes following Steeletto and Sultry but I’m not seeing them. That is one trend I wish would happen.

Oh yeah, I’m all for any lip trend that isn’t matte. It’s beautiful on others but gives me that “butthole lip” look so I’m not a fan and never will be. Bring on the cream lippies and glosses I say!

I’m really loving facial sprays, whether primer, setting, or just refresh. I love the way they moisturize my skin instantly. We’re talking freckle pick-me-up! I love them glossy, sparkly, matte, or wet. I use them every morning, every night, and in between and I’m still looking for my HG brand, but don’t care if I find it because I love playing with them all.

Loving the new trend of brushed up eyebrows as I have naturally thick ones, (think bushy old-man eyebrows) that I have to trim every week and they tend fan out anyway. I was never into the drag queen style of eyebrows.

A blurred healthy looking lip, sometimes with a little butter gloss rather than what I used to wear daily, time consuming lipliner and a loud matte color. It took several brushes + concealer + lip prep time. Takes too long. Feels dry even in warmer weather. Made my lips appear smaller in pics. I want my lips to look fuller and my teeth to look whiter (as it all ages) so I’ve been wearing buttery lipstick stains and way less opaque loud color.

Trend that’s frightening: Those P. Louise cut creases that seem to go on for eternity while the skin looks incredibly neglected.

I like that light coverage foundation is becoming more popular. Full coverage is not for everyone, and it has a tendency to look cakey. And while I liked liquid lipsticks in high school, I think regular bullet lipsticks are much easier to wear. It’s amazing how much my makeup style has evolved since I first started wearing makeup.
