These nine bold, glittery, and dewy looks, ahead, are going to be the biggest hair and makeup or beauty trends of 2018.
1 GLITTER LIPS
Last year, Pat McGrath introduced the fashion industry and the masses alike to glitter-dusted lips—and the look will still be fresh as hell in 2018. As conceptual of a lewk as it is, all you need to do is swipe on a gloss or matte liquid lipstick, then pat (haaa) on some loose glitter with your ring finger.
2 METALLIC BROWS
First came microblading, then came the wave brow, and now the beauty trends 2018 is the metallic brow, a super-subtle highlight for your eyebrows, which looks equally lowkey as it does cool. Mix a dab of Vaseline or clear brow gel with loose bronze or copper eyeshadow, then brush it through your brows for a soft finish.
3 EXTRA-LONG HAIR
No, not quite as long as the ankle-length hair we saw earlier this year, but still longer than the hair you had as a kid. From the Kardashians’ butt-length waves to Beyoncé’s magical, waist-grazing braided ponytail, it’s going to be a long-hair frenzy in 2018.
4 BLURRED LIPS
Picture-perfect liquid matte lips had their moment, but now it’s time to give your hand-eye coordination (and your delicate eating and drinking) a break. Enter: The blurred lip. You can embrace the imperfect by lighting smudging and mussing the edges of your lips with your fingertips before your lipstick has a chance to fully dry.
