With some good old trends like the perennial red lipstick making a comeback, Spring 2018 had some other good new ones too including major highlighting, no contouring and a tonne of sparkle.

Check out the 16 makeup trends to hit the streets this Spring 2018:

Glittery, Black Eyeliner

It might sound a bit been there, done that, but celebrity MUA, Pat McGrath added a little twist to it by making the eyeliner thick and round at the edges.

Simply line your eyes with a black liner and then added a glitter black eyeshadow over it.

Shades Of Gold

While makeup brands are hopping on the holographic trend left, right and center, MUAs are still focusing on the good old gold highlighter for the runway looks.

The After Party Look

If only we all looked like this after a party.

The idea behind the look was to create a look that reflected the remains of the makeup after a party. In MUA words, a lip stain and several coats of mascaras. The lashes were pinched in clumps once the mascara had dried down.
