As a professional makeup artist, I have been keeping an eye on the latest beauty trends and observing what looks are dominating the runway and social media. Here are five of the top trending looks that I predict will be popular in 2023.

Bold Lips

Bold lips are making a comeback and are expected to be a big trend in 2023. Bold shades such as bright red, deep berry, and bold fuchsia will be popular. Matte lipsticks will continue to be on-trend, but glossy and satin finishes will also be in demand. To create the perfect bold lip, start by exfoliating the lips and then apply a lip primer to ensure the lipstick lasts longer. Use a lip liner to define the lips and then apply the lipstick with a brush or straight from the tube.

Glitter Eyes

Glitter and metallic eye shadows have been popular for a while now, and this trend is set to continue in 2023. The key to nailing this look is to keep the rest of the makeup minimal and let the glitter do the talking. Neutral shades such as gold, bronze, and silver will be popular, but bright colors like blue and green will also make an appearance. To create this look, apply a glitter eye shadow all over the eyelid, blend out the edges, and finish with a coat of mascara.

Graphic Liner

Bold and graphic eyeliner looks will be popular in 2023. Whether it's a cat-eye or a graphic liner, this trend is all about making a statement. Bold colors such as blue and green will be popular, but black and brown will always be classic. To create this look, start by drawing a thin line along the lash line and then build it up to the desired thickness. Extend the line beyond the outer corner of the eye to create a wing, or create a graphic shape that suits your eye shape.

Monochromatic Makeup

Monochromatic makeup is all about using the same shade of color on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. This trend is set to be popular in 2023, and it's a great way to create a cohesive look. Shades of peach, pink, and terracotta will be popular, but you can experiment with any color that suits your skin tone. To create this look, start by using a cream or powder blush on the cheeks, then apply a matching shade of eyeshadow on the eyes, and finish with lipstick in the same shade.

Natural Glow

A natural glow is always on-trend, but in 2023, it will be bigger than ever. This look is all about radiant and healthy-looking skin. To create this look, start by using a hydrating primer or moisturizer to prep the skin. Use a lightweight foundation or tinted moisturizer to even out the skin tone and then apply a cream or liquid highlighter on the high points of the face, such as the cheekbones, bridge of the nose, and cupid's bow. Finish with a coat of mascara and a natural-looking lip gloss.
