It’s more than just an exaggerated cat-eye flick. Think geometric shapes and floating lines that sit not on the lash line but on the crease of the eyelid instead. You’ll need absolute precision, so use a liquid eyeliner for this.

Trend: The Nude Look

As seen at: Chloé

It’s all about a dewy complexion complete with barely-there makeup. Definitely one of those #iwokeuplikethis moments. But we don’t suggest going completely bare-faced. Instead, try a BB cream or apply foundation to the areas where you need a little coverage.

It was 50 shades of red on the runways from bright and bold to deep berry hues in a variety of finishes like matte, cream and even gloss. Truly the easiest way to brighten any look. Just slick on and go.

Trend: The Flushed Cheek

As seen at: Ralph Lauren

You might not be able to take a walk outside in cool wintry air, but you can mimic the flush you'll get with a rosy glow on the cheeks. Sweep a peach or pink blush onto the apples and even a little across the bridge of the nose. Complete with windswept hair for a total look.

Trend: The Boho Wave

A style that’s here to stay for sure. To work the trend, braid the hair into two or three thick braids, then lightly press them between a flat iron. Release and run your fingers through. Or spritz a salt spray onto freshly washed hair and scrunch for that carefree vibe.
