Makeup trends – I can´t be the only one that keeps looking them up, but struggles to incorporate them into their actual routine.
Don’t get me wrong, I do wear more makeup than the average woman, but what looks gorgeous on a 20 something on the runway doesn’t necessarily flatter a 40 something doing the groceries.
But seeing that I am stuck in kind of a makeup rut, I decided to challenge myself and see if I can actually adapt the Makeup Trends 2019 to my life – runway to real life, if you will.
To ease into it, I picked the one that was closest to home: Easy eyes and red lips.
I know red lips aren’t for everyone, but I feel like this look works with different kinds of red – soft and fresh as I opted for in the video, but also with a statement pout.

As always recommend you watch on You Tube and in HD.
Now I get that this isn’t actually a surprising look, but it has a few things that are different to how I usually do it.
Take the liner, for example. Or the non-liner, the eyeshadow. As someone who’s “signature look” (which basically means the look that I do while I am still asleep on Monday morning) is always a black winged liner, the soft effect it had was kind of surprising whenever I caught a glimpse in the mirror.
The more glossy lip and the blurred out effect added to the fresh and well-rested impression that gave, quite an achievement given that this was filmed in January when my usual look is more of a grey in grey, blending in with my surroundings.
If you wanted to step it up, try adding a few corner lashes – the lift they will give to the eye transforms the whole look.
All products are easily dupable, but if you want some recommendations, here you go.
