The predictions for 2019 makeup trends are in, and we can’t lie, they have us pretty excited. With a forecast of graphic liners, natural brows, pastel palettes, and glossy lips, who wouldn’t be? If all this sounds like the ’90s are making comeback (again), then you’re right. The fact that skin is also in, merely confirms it. We’ve already seen celebrities stun in a number of natural makeup looks this awards season, and we expect more to come. Until then, we’ll be drawing inspiration from the gallery ahead. Click through to see what happens when #skingoals meet #makeupgoals. It’s stunning.
This Black Panther actress is literally one of Hollywood’s freshest faces and judging by the way she owns this barely-there-makeup, she knows it too. Need we mention how this understated look draws attention to her beautiful bedazzled braids. #WakandaForever
Whether you chose pretty pastel shadows like actress Kiki Lane or a sultry smoky eye, fresh-looking skin will always make your lids standout.
Even if you have amazing skin like Yara Shahidi, it’s pretty hard to resist this season’s clean-makeup trend when it makes your brows standout like so.
Don’t let the freezing temperatures stop your shine, get a gorgeous gleam like actress Logan Browning, by applying a sheer foundation with a natural finish.
We love the fact that even slightest wash of color looks HD atop natural-looking makeup. We can’t decide what captivates us more, Amandla Steinburg’s peachy pout or her pastel eyelids.
Expect to see more mesmerizing melanin moments from this Black Panther actress, who brilliantly paired her pastel dress with her lipstick, thus making her skin standout. We’re taking notes.
The Boo’d Up singer is a whole mood with this moody lipstick. Her wine-colored lips make her glass-like skin stand out.
We can always look to Jhene Aiko for two things: amazing brows and a spotless complexion. Luckily you can get latter with Fraxel, the resurfacing laser treatment the Wasted Love singer swears by, or with makeup when applied like this.
We couldn’t miss SZA’s gorgeous glow from underneath her curls galore if we tried.
Of course, RiRi knows a thing or two about makeup that looks like skin, she created an entire collection of it and we’re just happy that it includes everything we need to get this stunning Fenty Face.

This is how you keep things funky and fresh. We love how this neon lip and eye combo pops with the Blackish star’s signature no-makeup look.
Perfection. Need we say more? If you look closely, you can see Zoe Kravitz freckles. That’s the beauty of natural-looking makeup. It doesn’t hide your skin, it enhances it and we love that.
Speaking of barley-there makeup, sometimes a white liner is all it takes to get a revitalized look and amp up your overall glow.
