So we’ve almost made it through the first two weeks of 2018, and while I can’t say I’m ready to give up the last of the christmas chocolates there are definitely some things I’m ready to give up in 2018…
Over Highlighting the Skin
While I do love a good glow, I’m just over the tin man/super reflective highlighter. Personally I think it looks fab in photos but on me it looks awful in real life, so in 2018 I’m going to be embracing a softer glow that’s less sparkly and more dewy!
“Baking” the Under Eye area
While adding some excess powder to your under eye can be fab for catching eyeshadow fallout if you’ve already done your foundation, baking the under eye area can often lead to it looking white and can almost ruin a good makeup look. If this is something you love just be cautious as camera flash might not be your best friend.
Overly Drying Matte Lips
While it is widely known on this blog that I love a good matte, I’m over how dehydrated certain brands can leave the lips! Recently I’ve been opting for a (non-sticky) gloss over my liquid lipsticks which helps them be a whole lot more comfortable. My favourite gloss is the Max Factor Gloss in the shade Lustrous Sands.
Of course these are just trends that I’m not into, personally I don’t find them flattering so I’m leaving them behind in 2017. If you love these trends then please don’t be offended, you keep on doing you!
