3 Major Makeup Trends We Saw At The Makeup Show NYC
As you've probably figured out, at Influenster, we're all about staying on top of the latest beauty trends and getting our hands on as much brand new makeup as we can. While we were overwhelmed with the innovation, product releases, and tutorials we saw at The Makeup Show NYC, three major trends really seemed to stand out above the rest. If you're going to follow the big trends this summer you better be ready to look bold and add a little bit of sparkle to your beauty routine.
Don’t get us wrong, we love our mascaras, but sometimes our natural lashes just don’t wow like we want them to. With the rise of false lashes comes a lot of options. At the Makeup Show we saw some amazing reusable silk and mink options from Velour Lashes, which, due to some splurging we’ve already tried.
We also saw some amazing lash options from Lashes In A Box, Elevation Lash, and more—from over-the-top fake lashes with jewels to more natural options for every day, we’re certain you’ll be able to find falsies that suit your wants and needs this summer!
Everywhere we turned at the Makeup Show in NYC we saw glitter—a pleasant switch up from the nude, matte, and minimal styles we’ve seen in recent years. We saw brands big and small bringing glitter to the forefront including household names such as Urban Decay and MAC, and a few companies that seemed to specialize in glitters such as Magnolia Makeup, Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Eye Kandy, and Naked Cosmetics.
Above you can see our co-founder, Elizabeth, trying the Magnolia Makeup glitter on her lips! The girls running the Magnolia Makeup booth were more than generous with their time, showing us exactly how to layer the lipstick, liner, and glitter. Stay tuned because we’ll also be featuring a how-to for this lip look on our YouTube channel soon!
If you’re looking to add a lot of glitter to your makeup in one fell swoop check out Naked Cosmetics. The brand offers six color collections for about $60. You can also check out Eye Kandy if you need help choosing the proper adhesive. A big bonus for many of the glitters we saw is that they are very versatile—easy to use as eyeshadow, lipstick, eyeliner, and more!
IN LIVING COLOR
If you’ve been afraid to add bold colors to your makeup routine, it’s time face your fears. From eyeshadow palettes to eyeliners, lipsticks, mascaras, and even adorable colored brushes, we saw many pops of color at The Makeup Show NYC. We consistently saw bold blues, oranges, and pinks across many brand’s booths. From crazy colored smoky eyes to multi-hued lashes, and insanely bold lips, it was all about color at the Makeup Show NYC this year. We were also lucky enough to get some exclusive sneak peeks at brand new bold and colorful eyeshadow palettes from NARS, Urban Decay, and Winky Lux!
