5 Instagram Trends For All You Beauty Buffs

Forget runway trends; it’s all about Insta trends! With a new makeup trend being born on Instagram every day, social media has made it a lot easier to keep up with what’s hot. If you’re looking to rock a couple of new looks this month, here are five makeup trends we’ve spotted all over our Instagram feeds lately.

1. Strobe it ’till you make it

Effortless eye makeup really does exist and it’s a lot easier than you think! We’ve recently seen inner-corner strobing of the eye pop up on our Insta radar and love how it brightens up the face with just a few brush blends. Keep it simple or pair it with your favourite jet-black liquid liner for a dramatic effect.

Rock the look by… applying a brightly coloured eyeshadow to the inner corner of your eye using a small brush.

2. Kill ’em with white eyeliner

While not everyone can pull off white eyeliner (with Cara Delevingne as the benchmark, it’s pretty hard!), it’s definitely a killer look that’s worth trying. Bringing back that 90’s flair, white eyeliner not only brightens the face, it’s also a great secret weapon in making your eyes look a lot bigger!

Rock the look by… applying white eyeliner to both your eyelids and bottom inner lash line to make your eyes look even bigger.

3. Fake a holiday glow

Summer vacation plans gone out the window? Don’t worry; you can still fake that holiday glow without getting on a plane! All you need to do is get your hands on a multi-purpose stain or cream – a super handy 3-in-1 product that will transform your lips and cheeks in minutes.

Rock the look by… applying a multi-purpose stain to your lips and cheeks, and blending using your fingers.

Out with the matte and in with the gloss; this season is all about glossy finishes and natural shades! Quick, effortless and oh-so glamorous, this subtle look is a great makeup routine when you’re not in the mood to get overly dolled up.

Rock the look by… using a nude lip gloss for a natural-yet-noticeable finish.

5. Rock a peachy matte look

You can never go wrong with pastel colours, especially when they’re as flattering as this soft, peachy matte eye look! Add a splash of colour to your eyes and a nude plump to your lips, and get ready to turn some heads!

Rock the look by… applying a peachy matte eyeshadow to your eyelids and just under the lower lash line using a brush.
