How To Recreate 2020 Makeup Trends
I RECENTLY had lunch with my friends from Benefit Cosmetics Philippines to talk about their upcoming releases. Unfortunately, some of these releases can’t be written about yet, but they are products that many Benefit fans have loved in the past. I’m in love with one palette in particular but that is all I’m going to say.
One item I can talk about is the Brow Zings Pro Palette. Brow Zings, which consists of a brow wax and powder, was my first Benefit product. The new slim, portable eyebrow palette has four long-wear powders to fill and shade, along with three waxes to sculpt and define, two high-pigment waxes and one clear wax. It is available in two combinations: Light-Medium, which includes cool blonde to warm brown shades, and Medium-Deep, which includes warm brown to cool black-brown shades.
During the lunch, Benefit Cosmetics Philippines National Brow Artist Czari Domingo did the makeup of her favorite model Annika incorporating 2020’s top beauty trends.
Domingo is a lovely girl who has brows to die for, which is why she is bemoaning the forecast that thin brows will be on trend again after years of thick, natural-looking brows.
I’m happy that one of the trendiest brows for 2020 is structured because I’m not sure I can live through another season of thin brows. In my opinion, they can make people look old.
I like the look of a subtle lip stain, one of 2020’s top makeup trends, because it’s very low maintenance. With the right blush, it also looks very dreamy. I also like the pastel eyeliner and watercolor eyeshadow trends. They are looks I can no longer wear but they’re really lovely.
Domingo did a graphic negative space liner look on Annika using Bad Gal Bang Eye Liner in Blue, a creamy and long-wearing pencil. For the eyes, Domingo also used Bad Gal Bang Mascara.
Graphic negative space liner is an update on the classic cat eye. You’re actually creating the outline of the cat eye, except on a larger scale. You can do it subtly or in a bold way.
The look admittedly needs a bit of courage, both to create and to wear. It’s not very office-friendly. It would be perfect for a work setting where people are encouraged to be creative, like in a publication or advertising agency. But if you are not as good a makeup artist as Domingo, it could take forever to do.
Another makeup trend Domingo demonstrated for us was glossy lips. To do this, she applied a mix of Cha Cha Tint and Love Tint, and topped this with Punch Pop in Sugar Cookie.
Domingo also shared some makeup tips and tricks, the Benefit Cosmetics way:
- Don’t be afraid of color. Peach and blue look good together on morena skin.
- Mixing Benefit Boi-ing Cakeless Concealer with The POREfessional: Hydrate Primer makes concealer glide on smoothly and ensures a cake-free finish.
- If you make mistakes while doing makeup, dip a cotton tip in POREfessional to correct it.
- Keep the mirror low so you can see your eye shape.
- Glossy brows give the illusion of good health.
