Trends can be tricky if they’re just not a fit for you. And let’s face it, not all the trends we see on the major runways are suitable for melanin girls. This week Dior, Chanel, and Prada held runway shows for their extravagant Resort 2020 collections. While some opted for simple and subtle makeup that didn’t compete with the clothes, some beauty teams added little touches that are sure to be trending through summer and beyond.
The black lips we saw at Chanel might seem like it’s only for the bold, or bud smokers, but if it’s done right anyone can pull it off. If you’re a creature of the night, a black matte or high shine lipstick can easily become you’re going out shade. Try Milani Bold Color Statement Matte Lipstick, $6.99, or Kat Von D Studded Kiss Crème Lipstick, $20, or The Lip Bar Lipstick in Night Owl, $12, for long-wear options.
A tiny pop of red can go a long way when it’s the only color on your face. As seen on the Prada Resort 2020 runway, it can be worn just on the outer corners of the eye. You can also try a red liner for that throwback disco vibe when you’re feeling like having some fun on an average day. Try NYX Professional Makeup Faux Blacks Eyeliner in Oxblood, $7.99, or Morphe’s The James Charles Palette, $39, or Marc Jacobs Beauty Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner, $25 in matte suede, to have everyone seeing red.
For all the naturally hairy girls, the full brow trend makes face grooming slightly easier. Slightly. For everyone else, you’ll need an arsenal of brow grooming products to get those babies filled in properly, and to keep them in place all day. Try Absolute New York 2-in-1 Brow Perfecter, $7.99, or e.l.f. Lock On Liner and Brown Cream, $4, or L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Kabuki Blender, $12.99 to get a natural looking full brow.
