The world of beauty changes all the time. With trends that come and go in the blink of an eye, it can be hard to keep up with the latest makeup trends. From peach makeup to grunge makeup, we have something for everybody. Whether you’re an avid follower of beauty trends or just need some makeup inspiration, here are 5 Makeup Trends We're Seeing This Year!

Cherry Cola Craze

Immerse yourself in the sweet allure of the cherry cola makeup trend. Cherry cola lips encompass a nostalgic feeling with charm to elevate your makeup routine. Picture the rich tantalising hue of ripened cherries combined with cola, producing a rich lip colour that is bold and enticing. This trend is a crowd favourite as it captures the core of vintage glamour.


Think classic pin-up with a fresh approach. The deep ten tones add sensuality to your lips, while the outline of the brown tone lip liner creates a dark shadow for a contrasting effect. From your lunch with friends to nights out, cherry cola lips will become a daily part of your makeup routine. Give it a try and see for yourself how delicious the blend is. 

Grunge Scene

Grunge makeup is synonymous with rebellion and an effortlessly cool look to achieve. It’s an edgy and messy aesthetic incorporating muted cool-toned eyeshadow, smudged eyeliner, and an ‘I slept in my makeup and just woke up’ appearance. Bold dark lips and messy smoked-out eyeshadow are at the core of the grunge makeup aesthetic.


You can play up or down the grunge look to suit your needs by creating a subtle and softer version of the trend or you can create a more amplified version by incorporating an even darker lip and adding smokier eyeshadow. The 90’s alternative music scene and celebrities such as Kate Moss and Drew Barrymore brought this makeup trend to the forefront. 

Just Peachy

Pantone has declared Peach Fuzz the colour of the year, and we are loving it! Peach makeup is a juicy beauty trend that brings warmth and a fresh look to your daily makeup routine. The softness of the peach tones seamlessly enhances your features to produce a glowy and youthful appearance. Peach blushes emulate the soft rosiness of sun-kissed skin, while peach eyeshadows are a flattering touch for all eye colours.


Peachy-coloured lips or glosses create a monochromatic look. Whether you opt for a subtle peach-toned nude or vibrant coral this makeup esthetic imparts a sweetness perfect for summer. If you’re feeling daring, create a monochromatic vibe by pairing blush, eyeshadow, and lip shades together. You won’t regret it! 

Full Glam? Yes, Ma'am 

Take your makeup game to the next level with a full-glam matte aesthetic! This makeup trend stands out and consists of intense pigments with a soft velvet-like matte finish to deliver a flawless and long-wearing look. Fall in love with dramatic eyeshadows made to define and enthrall onlookers.


Be sure to use a medium to full-coverage matte foundation to keep your skin smooth and poreless so it can last all day! Keep your plush and contour matte to maintain a smooth complexion and coordinate the look. Finish off your matte lipstick with a slick gloss to add a modern twist to an old classic. 

Luminous Wet Look 

Indulge in the trend of wet-look makeup. What is wet look makeup you ask? It’s an aesthetic that brings a fresh and dewy appearance with an added glow, so it looks like you are beaming every time the light catches your face. This makeup look mimics the look of radiant, just-moisturised skin to create a glistening complexion.


Achieve a wet look with beaming highlighters. Whether you opt for a liquid, cream, or powder, it's important to keep the highlighter on the high points of your face. Adding a gloss to your eyelids elevates your look for a dewy and wet effect. Add a juicy gloss to finalise your look. Not sure if this trend is right for you? This look is for beauty lovers who are looking for an ethereal finish filled with luminosity.   

It’s time to embrace your creativity and give these makeup trends a red-hot go! Remember we all have different facial features so recreating these makeup looks might not look the same on you, but that’s the beauty of being unique…there’s only one you.
