How to Rock the Watercolor Eyeshadow Trend This Season

1juni2

We all know that life can imitate art. When it comes to beauty, though, it’s more about techniques imitating art. Think: calligraphy-inspired eyeliner, abstract nail art and, as of late, watercolor eyeshadow. Our Instagram feeds have been flooded with soft, dewy, and colorful eye makeup looks that mimic the effect of colorful paintings. Scroll down for seven mini masterpieces that are perfect for warm weather seasons.

Makeup artist Athena Paginton first shared her devil-may-care creation on Instagram, further proving that the days of the picture-perfect, pencil-chiseled arch will soon be behind us. And who's complaining? Any trick to disguise those rogue morning hairs (or the undeniable wreckage the week before I see my brow guru) is welcome here.

Pretty Or Creepy? Feather Brows Are The Most Love-It-or-Hate-It Trend To Hit Instagram Yet

landscape-1491927295-feather-brows

As far as we knew, the outer bounds of eyebrow creativity were limited to coloring, bejeweling, and maybe some highlighting. But then Finnish MUA Stella Sironen made one small parting for makeup kind, one giant leap for exciting ideas in beauty.
Earlier the week, Sironen posted the first known photo of what she'd later call the #featherbrow, in which the arch's hairs are split down the middle using a glue stick (!!!) for an effect that resembles barbs diverging along a quill. Note 1: She credits her friend Leevi for dreaming up the avian look while brushing her brows. And Note 2 : Get a load of that holographic eye and blue mascara—really nice.

so i'm starting this new brow trend please...

Butt Glitter Is the Latest WTF Beauty Trend Taking Over the ‘Net

glitter-makeup

Last year was ALL about the dreamy rainbow unicorn look: from that now infamous rainbow highlighter, to stunning rainbow hair, 2016 was the year of the unicorn. 2017, however is taking on a whole new realm of sparkle, as glitter fanatics have taken things  to a whole other level. With major brands such Urban Decay slaying the fad with their newest topcoat, and more ways to rock glitter makeup than ever before (glitter roots, y’all!), we figured we had our sequined makeup bases covered. But boy, were we ever wrong!

The Must-Have Accessory for Fall Is One You Already Own

GettyImages-645315040

Runway beauty trends tend to range from the wearable to the wacky. While it’s always fun to check out the wilder styles designers send out at shows, they’re hardly ever practical. Luckily, the top hair trend this season is totally doable — and one you may actually already have in your closet. A black ribbon made its way down the catwalks at Tory Burch, Marchesa, and more. Even better: No tutorial required!

NikkieTutorials Launches Initiative to End Makeup Shaming

StopMakeupShaming
If you dabble in the world of beauty gurus on YouTube even just a little bit, then it's more than likely you've heard of NikkieTutorials. She started off like any other makeup obsessee on the Internet, using her skills to educate viewers and gain a following in hopes of creating a community. But she quickly became a mainstay, especially after her "Power of Makeup" video went viral a little over a year ago. In the video, Nikkie leaves one half of her face totally bare to show exactly how transformative makeup can be, and at the same time, calls out makeup shamers who judge those based on the amount of makeup they wear or how they choose to express themselves...

4 Trendy New Nail Color Combinations

creatures-wind

If you tend to get stuck in a nail rut with your normal neutrals or pastel pinks, there’s no better place to look than the quirky runways of New York Fashion Week for a little out-of-the-box inspiration.

1.Prabal Gurung Fall

 The inspiration behind this look was the idea of nails being dipped in a paint bucket. It’s a super easy take on the negative space trend. Simply swipe on a clear base coat, then use the color of your choice to draw a straight line across the middle of the nail. Use two coats to fill in from that line to the tip of the nail. Finish with a clear top coat.

To buy: JinSoon in Auspicious, $18; nordstrom.com.
