Ever since ColourPop launched their $5 insanely pigmented super shock eyeshadows, we started believing that cheap beauty trills exist. The cosmetics brand has come a long way since its initial launch and offered a variety of innovative affordable products. ColourPop constantly proves that luxury doesn’t have to be expensive. The latest exciting drop includes a range of 24 vegan lux bullet lipsticks. Each lipstick retails for $7 which is another shockingly affordable price. Even drugstore brands are on the pricier side than Colourpop, but this once online-only brand made it to Sephora recently. Let’s not forget that the luxury retailer welcomes only high-quality brands in the family. With such low prices, ColorPop is one of our favorite affordable luxury brands.
According to the brand, ColourPop’s team worked for a while on creating a lipstick that will redefine luxury. They even fired up the first batch of products more than a month ago but ended up hating the formula. About 45 days later, and after hours spent reevaluating every single aspect of the formula, the team came up with the game-changing Lux lipstick. The brand claims that this is one of the most revolutionizing products they made. Kylie Cosmetics by the infamous Kylie Jenner, Kat Von D Beauty, and Anastasia Beverly Hills dropped massive ranges of traditional lipsticks last year, so ColourPop most certainly had to make sure that the quality of their lipsticks is impeccable. It’s hard to say that the era of liquid lipsticks is over, but bullet lipsticks will most certainly have a moment in the following period.
The Lux lipsticks by ColourPop feature a creamy matte finish which has a luxury feel. The packaging won’t give you a clue that this product is only $7 – the lipstick comes in a gold casing, emblazoned with stars and the brand’s logo. Each of the 24 shades is 100% vegan which means every beauty obsessive can use them. It can be challenging to find vegan makeup products at such accessible prices which is another reason why the Lux lipstick is a game changer. The shade range includes everything from classic nudes, vibrant reds, and corals to vampy plums as well as bold shades such as black and green.
The Lux lipsticks will launch on January 31, which means we are only days away from this exciting drop. ColourPop will also offer a chic PR box for purchase for those interested in getting the full range. So, you don’t have to be a beauty guru to receive your makeup goodies in a beautiful PR box. Thanks to ColourPop you can also film one of those exciting unboxing videos on your Instagram story.

Great news for all makeup lovers. It is officially time to experiment with all the boldest looks you like. Throughout the year we usually stick to our regular makeup routine and don’t get out of the comfort zone too much. That is mostly because we all have to go to work, where statement makeup looks might not be appropriate. Starting from subtle eyeshadows, to classic lipstick shades such as nude and red, we all have the similar routine. Except for makeup artists, who do fun looks as part of their job.
During the holiday season, you can wear the most festive outfits, hairstyles and makeup looks. That is why we can give ourselves the freedom to rock a statement, dramatic lip. When you think of the fact that every single day you have to put on a toned-down shade, you feel the need to try something new. Thankfully, the latest beauty trends will give you the courage to flaunt a green, blue and even yellow lipstick.
Many of the biggest makeup brands launched bold lipstick collections in the past month. In other words, 2018 officially got a fierce start. Rihanna and her brand Fenty Beauty released a line of 14 game-changing products. Her collection features colors such as navy, deep green, vibrant purple, and statement-making orange. Kat Von D is another makeup guru that followed the same trend. Her Studded Kiss lipstick range is more than impressive. It includes the most amazing lipstick colors like white, black, gray, magenta, green and blue. Even Sephora joined the club with a line of 40 astonishing colors.
If you’ve already chosen a dress for the upcoming crazy nights, you can match your lips with the colors of the outfit. Instead of rocking an already seen red lip, try a fun metallic shade. Green and blue look more than gorgeous in a metallic version. With such a bold lipstick you won’t even need to spend much time on the eyes.
Another way to go is a matte, saturated lip. Once again the options are endless. Orange is a must, but if it’s not your favorite go with magenta, dark brown or even black.
Check out these fierce beauty bloggers who were brave enough to experiment with dramatic lipstick shades. You will get all the inspiration you need to create a unique look ideal for party season. The moment you stop being afraid of colors, your makeup looks will become three times better.
It looks that 2017 is the year of MAC Cosmetics. The makeup giant was dropping collection after collection, collaboration after collaboration. And just when we thought that it’s time to wrap it up, MAC has one last surprise. Their latest release is named Lunar New Year collection and it will be available at the beginning of 2018.
It all started as a rumor, reported by several different beauty sites. Trenmood1 on Instagram already published pictures of the products from the Lunar collection several days ago. That is when it became clear that the New Year launch is happening. Popsugar already contacted the makeup brand, and their representatives confirmed the new drop.
The most talked about thing when it comes to the new collection is the packaging. We are used to MAC’s minimalistic black containers that protect the goodies inside. This time the brand decided to go a bit more innovative with the packages. The Lunar New Year line is wrapped in gorgeous containers colored in pink and yellow with an ombre effect. The lipstick bullets also feature a golden line located between the bottom and the cap. There are already many positive comments about this vibrant change of aesthetics of the cosmetics giant.
From what we could see in the teased pictures there will be five new shades of lipsticks, a blush, and an eyeshadow palette. The lipstick range is based mostly on red and pink tones. “Good Health” is an orangey-nude shade with a satin finish. “Prosperity” is a matte coral hue, while “To Luck!” carries a matte burnt orange tone. “Peachy New Year” is the second lipstick with satin finish and has a more intense peach color. The last one in the line is “Pure Happiness”, soft pink hue with a crèmesheen finish.
MAC’s Luck and Fortune eyeshadow palette is made of nine shades, all of them soft and girly. The only exception is the deep brown one. The rest of the shades are very gentle and bright. The palette offers a great mix of rose and nude hues. There is one final product that will make your skin very happy. It’s the gorgeous powder blush duo Love Token and Long Life & Happiness.
The Lunar makeup line will drop on January 18. It’s going to be a limited edition release, available online and in several MAC locations. If you still haven’t treated yourself with a New Year’s gift, this might be the perfect thing to get.
With only five days to go until party season, everyone is getting their outfits and looks together. Women always pay a lot of attention to their outfit and makeup for New Year’s Eve. Finding the right dress can be a lot of work. And when you do find it, there are other things you need to fit into that story. Makeup is one of the things that deserve a lot of attention. This 2017 was full of many trends that can finally come to life for the craziest night of the year.
For some women, New Year’s Eve is all about having fun while looking amazing. And if there is one thing that can help you stand out that is makeup. These days there are so many great beauty bloggers that post their mesmerizing looks, that is hard to choose one. Another huge source of inspiration is celebrities. They have the honors to collaborate with the most popular makeup artists in the world. A-listers are also the ones that set all the new trends. So if you’ve been looking for the best New Year’s Eve makeup ideas, we chose some statement looks by celebrities.
A great way to start is to decide whether you want a bold or natural appearance. If you are opting for something eye-catching, glitter is the best way to go. The holidays are the ideal time to rock statement glitter eyes and a vibrant lipstick. Another fierce and popular option is a red or burgundy eyeshadow. For some ladies, this is too much, but if you are wearing a simple dress it will make you stand out. Flaunting a fierce red lip is always something to rely on. Actually, every single dramatic lipstick color will bring all eyes on you.
This year we witnessed many strong cases for monochromatic makeup. Just recently, Rihanna showed off an all-lilac Fenty Beauty look. The singer always stuns with her perfect appearance. She went with a soft purple eyeshadow, light lavender lip gloss and a bold lavender highlighter that glammed up her whole look. Don’t be afraid to go hard on that glow for New Year’s Eve.
Take a cue from these famous celebrities and their gorgeous party looks. If you still haven’t decided on how to do your makeup for New Year’s Eve, we made sure to find you plenty of inspiration. Starting from Demi Lovato’s vampy look, to Rihanna’s soft lilac makeup, there are choices for everyone.
Pageant makeup has changed a lot over the years. Ever since the early beginnings, until today makeup looks have evolved in any sphere of beauty. One of the reasons is that back in the 1920 women didn’t have the access to as many products as we have today. Plus, at those times, the only ones who wore makeup, were the ladies who had a stage job. It was considered as a part of the costumes that actresses and singers had to put on for their performances. The first beauty contests first appeared in the 20s. But things weren’t even closely diverse like today. At that time, people tended to celebrate the natural beauty. In the last century, we witnessed many trends that put the accent on lipsticks, eyeliner, eyeshadow, blush and even eyebrows. Those same trending topics affected the beauty of pageants and the contestants.
The first decade was mostly about barely-there makeup looks. Also, the hairstyles were simple and elegant. Women flaunted glowing skin and lightly accented eyes. There were even contestants that participated without a drop of makeup.
The following decade was a complete turn-around. In the 30s, the trends were all about bold looks. These years there was a peak of popularity in daring lipstick colors. Many women chose dark shades such as burgundy. The eyeshadow was also excessive and applied to all over the lids. Ladies didn’t spare their products and opted for dark, black eyeshadows. The only minimal thing was the eyebrows. Women plucked them into very thin arches that looked like lines.
Another important decade in the history of pageant makeup is the ’80s. At that time everyone went by the rule of “more is more”. The contestants paid equal attention to all the facial features. The use of makeup was excessive on the lips, eyes, cheeks, lashes, and brows. Women accented their lips with daring lipstick colors such as orange, pink or red. When it comes to eyes, there was a little bit of everything. Daring eyeshadows, thick eyeliners, and brows were in the game. They also made a strong case for using an excessive amount of rouge.
As we approach to present day, you will find many of the trends familiar. The 2010s pageant makeup involves many of the techniques we use today. In the beginning of the decade, contestants flaunted smokey eyes and contoured faces. Another thing that you’ll often see during beauty contests is the glossy lips. Instead of the matte lipsticks that beauty influencers are rocking today, these women stuck to the lip gloss trend.
Show-stopping lipstick colors are trending again. And there probably isn’t a single color that brings a more dramatic effect than the orange. If you are a real makeup junkie than you must know that celebrities are obsessed with this shade. It compliments different skin tones. The orange shade is very easy to use, in spite of the fact that many ladies are afraid to try. Red and nudes are getting too ordinary, so it’s the time to experiment with something new. Especially if you are wearing a simple outfit, this bold shade will provide that wow factor.
This is not a trend that you can flaunt only in spring or summer. It is a look reserved for every time of the year and every occasion. The striking color will really make your look much more fun. Just a tiny pop of color will make you feel so much better.
A lot of famous designers painted the lips of their models orange on the fall runway shows. Which means that this color is here to stay. Orange lipstick was recently voted as the most flattering shade after the red one. So there isn’t a single doubt on what your next makeup purchase should be.
Also, there are many different hues that you can try. Burnt orange is a huge thing right now. It looks perfect in combination with bronze eyeshadow. Another thing you should go for is a matte striking orange lip. This is officially the most dramatic hue that will bring a lot of drama in your look. If you are opting for a dark eyeshadow and you want to tone it down with the lipstick, then peachy nude tones should be your choice. There are also many celebrities that fell in love with the coral shades of orange. It’s a color that will bring freshness to your look and you can wear every day.
Kendall Jenner loves flaunting her favorite orange lipstick. The supermodel is the ambassador of Estée Lauder, so she regularly uses their products. For one of her recent appearances, Kendall opted for a very natural look that involved glowing skin and a hint of mascara. Her makeup artists made sure to include a vibrant lip color to make her appearance even better.
Here are our favorite celebrity makeup looks that involve an orange lip. Emily Ratajkowski went with a glossy subdued shade of this color, while Olivia Moon chose a matte striking hue. Flip through the pictures below for an additional A-lister inspiration on the orange lip.
It is not easy to pull off a green eyeshadow look. It is one of the most luxurious tones when it comes to makeup. But if you are not good at doing your own, better not risk it. The good thing is that with enough practice and good advice you will end up loving a green look. This season the makeup trends are all about fierce and edgy. And what other shade defines those two terms better than the green one?! Thanks to the many talented makeup artists and their tutorials, this color is not reserved only for green eyes anymore. In the past, most ladies were scared to experiment with such shades. Thankfully all that has changed and the time of extravagant and daring makeup is here.
There are several different options that you can flaunt. The first one is a monochromatic eye look that involves only green color. You can mix several different tones and it will look gorgeous. You don’t have to add green to your whole lid. It can be a very subtle, but sophisticated look if you add a hint of color to several strategic spots. If you do add color everywhere, your makeup might appear too intense.
When it comes to this color, makeup artists usually chose the shade according to the complexion. For women that have fair skin, it is recommended to opt for lighter, paler tones of green eyeshadow. The ones that have darker skin can play with all shades including the dark emerald ones. Since there aren’t any strict rules of beauty, there can be exceptions.
Another huge trend that celebrities love is the green eyeliner. Ashley Graham and Lily Aldridge rocked chic sparkling eyeliner looks that are hard to resist. Their makeup artist Vincent Oquendo decided to play with color and scored big time. Both of the models showed off that change is always good. From time to time escape from your regular makeup routine. You will be surprised by the result.
If you already love purple or golden eyeshadows, they go perfectly with green. These shades make multicolored looks that steal all the attention. Sometimes even if you are wearing a simple outfit, these daring makeup looks can make you feel special.
Take a look at these mesmerizing green makeup looks that will instantly steal your heart. Ashley Graham, Vanessa Hudgens, Eva Longoria are loving this new trend. Now it’s your turn to get obsessed and copy your favorite one.
Burgundy is one of the most beautiful colors to use in makeup and fashion. We all love a vampy burgundy matte lip. Since celebrities love experimenting with new looks, they deliver new trends all the time. The latest thing from the red carpets is the burgundy eyeshadow that looks stunning. You might think that burgundy eyeshadow is risky and unwearable. But these celebrity looks will prove you wrong.
Another thing to know is that burgundy flatters every eye color. You can create many different looks with this shade. For example, you can go for a monochrome lid using only several different shades of burgundy. Since the holiday season is all about statement, you can add a little glitter. Another way to go is to match it with other shades such as gold, emerald, silver, pink, and purple.
For the 2015 AMAs, Selena Gomez flaunted a perfect burgundy smokey eye. The young singer left everyone breathless with her stunning makeup look. Selena wore a gorgeous burgundy sequined dress, so her makeup had to match her outfit. It became one of the most talked about beauty looks of the night. Since then not a lot of celebrities dared to try this trend. But 2017 is the year of surprises, and we get to enjoy many new exciting makeup trends.
The gorgeous actress Sarah Hyland scored big time with her oxblood eye makeup. For the Variety pre-Emmy’s party, the actress looked gorgeous in a sequined burgundy gown. Her makeup artist Allan Avendaño used burgundy eyeshadow to match her glittery dress and lips. It is hard to pull off such a monochromatic look, but Sarah didn’t have any problems doing it. The actress glammed up with a simple look that you can recreate. Allan shared some of the products he used in the process. The gorgeous burgundy eye you see is a result of MAC‘s Pro Eye Palette in the shade of “The Romantic. It is not the most affordable palette but is a good investment. To that, he added a little glitter to the inner eye corners using Pat McGrath Labs Copper 002 Pigment. There are many drugstore products that you can also get to recreate this gorgeous look.
Here are some of the most jaw-dropping burgundy looks that our favorite celebrities flaunted. If you have any doubts about this eyeshadow, these gorgeous makeup looks will change your mind. Don’t hesitate to pin your favorite looks and save them for later.
