Are you ready to step up your makeup game in 2023? Whether you're a makeup pro or a beginner, these five boss makeup looks will have you feeling confident and stylish all year long.
The "No-Makeup" Makeup Look: This trendy, natural look is all about enhancing your natural beauty rather than hiding it. To achieve this look, start by applying a lightweight, hydrating foundation like the Glossier Perfecting Skin Tint. Next, add a touch of color to your cheeks with the Nars Orgasm Blush and a swipe of the Maybelline Great Lash Mascara to your lashes. Finish off with a swipe of the Burt's Bees Lip Balm for a healthy, hydrated pout.
The Bold Lip Look: A bold lip is the ultimate boss move, and there are so many amazing shades to choose from. For a classic red lip, try the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo. Or, go for something a little more unconventional with the Fenty Beauty Stunna Lip Paint in Uncensored. Just be sure to keep the rest of your makeup minimal to really make your lips the star of the show.
The Smokey Eye Look: Smokey eyes are always a showstopper, and the good news is that they're actually easier to create than you might think. Start by applying a neutral, matte eyeshadow all over your lid. Next, use a small, flat brush to apply a darker shade to your outer corner and crease. Blend, blend, blend until you get the desired intensity. Finish off with a coat of the Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara and you're good to go.
The Cut Crease Look: This trendy eye makeup look involves creating a defined, angular crease using a lighter shade of eyeshadow. To get the look, start by applying a base color all over your lid. Then, use a small, pointed brush to apply a lighter shade just above your natural crease. Blend, blend, blend until you get the desired shape and intensity. Finish off with a few coats of the Benefit They're Real Mascara.
The Glitter Glam Look: If you're feeling bold and want to add some sparkle to your makeup routine, try a glitter glam look. Start by applying a neutral, matte eyeshadow all over your lid. Next, use a small, flat brush to apply a glitter eyeshadow to your inner corner and under your brow bone. Finish off with a coat of the L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara and a swipe of the Sephora Collection Lip Gloss in Sparkling Cider.
So there you have it, five boss makeup looks to try in 2023. Whether you're into natural, minimal looks or bold, glittery glam, there's something for everyone. Just remember to have fun and experiment with different shades and techniques until you find what works best for you. Happy makeup-ing!
