AUGMENTED REALITY. Virtual reality. The days of trying on 15 different lipsticks at the counter could be a thing of the past. Brands are now offering artificial

Do you agree the future of beauty trends will lean towards more of a natural trend/look with less makeup, products, and bright colors?

I think that we are slowly heading back toward a natural look, with a focus on beautiful and natural skin.

I don’t think it necessarily means fewer products, however. I think many people would be amazed by how many products CAN (but don’t necessarily HAVE to) be used for a no-makeup makeup look.

As for bright colors – they are not normally part of a natural look, but I think they can be incorporated into great “color pops” with mostly natural looks…

For example, really dewy, glowy natural-looking skin, just mascara and not a strong eye look, and a super bright lip color, or nude lips and a bright eyeliner or graphic liner. I think those looks are really fresh and fun, and am waiting on edits from a few recent shoots with that! One of those:

And an example from the internet:

If you go to my highlights on my instagram story, you can see all the products I used just for the bare faced look above, before I added the blue pop of color on the eyes! And that is with a young model with perfect skin!

While I’m glad that we’re getting away from the “insta-glam” look that, I don’t necessarily think it’s going to be less work for those going after trends. I am relieved, though, that I think more work/effort will go toward the skincare aspect of it to have a truly beautiful foundation to work on (and I mean skin, not from a bottle) as opposed to caking on product!

If you’d like to learn how to do looks that range from a 5-minute makeup look to a glam date night look, and require minimal products and NO searching through tutorials on YouTube, I’d like to recommend my online makeup course for busy moms and busy professionals, which you can check out here!
