Top 2019 Makeup Trends - Look 1 (series)

If you love trying new trends, then this series is for you! The 2019 makeup trends truly have something for everyone.  Rather than wearing every single trend at once, I decided to create a series of posts teaching you how to make each one wearable. 

Look #1

  1. Chose a single matte eyeshadow in a bright, pastel or even neon color. 
  2. The color you choose doesn't have to be super bright, just pick something slightly brighter than you normally would wear. 
  3. Get out your favorite blending brush.

The Trend: Forget all the usual fuss about transition shades, contour colors and highlight. This trend involves wearing a single color on the lid. How easy is that?

The best part about this trend is that it doesn't have to be neat or perfect. The idea is to blend on a sheer wash of color.

I chose Peach Punch from the Too Faced Just Peachy Mattes palette. It is somewhere between bright and pastel, plus peachy hues bring out the blue in my eyes. Using a Wayne Goss 26S brush, I blended the color along my lid, layering more on until I reached the desired opacity. 

While you really only need one eyeshadow and one brush for this look, some may feel more comfortable with an extra brush handy. If you really want the edges to be extra hazy, grab a clean fluffy brush and blend to get rid of any harsh lines.  The key to wearing a color like this is to make sure your base is even to eliminate any redness in the skin.  

Optional: If you suffer from redness under the eyes, or on the waterline, like I do, you may want to use a nude pencil on your lower inner rim to cancel it out. I also took a mixture of Peach Tea and Peach Tart (light & dark brown) along the lower lash line. You don't want this to look too done, keep it very light and blended so it just looks like a shadow. I applied the color beneath my lower lashes with a Furless Cosmetics PPE2 brush, and blended it with a Wayne Goss 27S brush. 

Finishing Touches: Tightline your upper lashes with a brown pencil (I used Urban Decay Demolition) to make your lashes look thicker. Apply just a single coat of mascara to curled lashes, combining out any clumps with a lash comb. 

Tips & Tricks: To get the color applied more evenly to the inner corner of the eye, you can use a small flat angled brush. Just be sure to blend, keeping the color to just a wash. 

Glossy lips are also very much on trend this year. I chose a sheer peachy gloss from Tarte, brushing a single layer on my lips. 

For blush, I used my current favorite Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous

The Final Look:

I kept brows natural, using just a clear brow gel to brush them in place. Feel free to brush on an even sheerer application of color if it makes you feel more comfortable. The important part of this trend is a matte shadow in a bright, pastel or neon color applied lightly.

For added points, this shadow is peach but leans coral and as you may know from my previous post Living Coral is the 2019 Pantone color of the year.
