8 Timeless Makeup Looks That Will Never Go Out of Style
1. Winged Eyeliner
Winged eyeliner should be a staple in your capsule makeup looks because it is universally flattering. This technique is worth mastering as it elongates any eye. The wing adds emphasis to the eye in a sophisticated way. You may need to try out different types of eyeliner to find your preferred method of application. The options range from liquid to gel as well as from pointy to angled tips.
2. Red Lipstick
This lipstick color is universally flattering and will elevate every outfit. This can be paired with any eye look from minimalistic to dramatic. It‘s that perfect, elegant pop of color. You may feel that a red which complements your cool, neutral or warm undertone may be the most flattering for you. You can also wear red in many shades ranging from bright to deep red to match any season of the year.
3. Natural Makeup
The natural makeup look (otherwise known as the no makeup makeup look) is a fail-proof for everyday. A little bit of mascara, a dot of concealer, a dusting of powder, filled in eyebrows and possibly some tinted lip balm – and you’re out the door. This look is meant to enhance your natural beauty without being visibly there.
4. All-Over-the-Lid Shade
The all-over-the-lid look is perfect for you lazy girls and boys who just don’t have the time to spend an hour cutting your crease for an elaborate Insta-eye makeup look. Surprisingly, this often turns out better. Just choose a flattering color for your complexion and blend it all over your lid with a blending brush or even your finger tip (this I best with metallics). Tip: Bronzer is a great shade for all over your lid since it’ll naturally match the rest of your face make up.
5. Nude Lipstick
Ahh the nude lip – this has been all the rage for a few years now – and rightly so. The nude lip balances out a dramatic eye look while accentuating them in ‘barely-there’ way. The trick is to find a tone which is as similar to your skin tone as possible. In other words, it shouldn’t lean too pink, peach or grey. You can wear it with or without gloss depending on if you’d like some extra shine (and it’s not too windy).
6. Bronzy Makeup
Everyone looks good with a little extra color in their face. If you’d like an entire makeup look that really only requires one product, then you’re looking for a bronzy look. A bronzer can add a sun-kissed bronze to your entire face and cheeks, while lightly sculpt your face. Added Tip: Sweep it all over your lids to tie everything in effortlessly.
7. Dewy Glowy Face
A fresh face always looks youthful. That is the wonder of the very sought after dewy, glowy look. This can be achieved with face moisturizer as well as dewy products such as primer, foundation, highlighter and setting spray. The trick is to keep your t-zone oil-free by applying mattifying products to those areas. Add some gloss to finish off the juicy look.
8. Smokey Eyes
While some may beg to differ, the smokey eye has stood the test of time. It is another universally flattering look. It has hundreds of variations ranging in color, finish and application – for example, it can be matt, brown or go all the way to the eyebrow. The look is so versatile, you can be sure that you’ll find the right one for you with some trial and error. Check out YouTube or Pinterest for contemporary versions, techniques and inspiration.
