It seems like there is a new bunch of Instagram trends every season that everyone wants to follow. One great thing about trends is that they’re relatively easy to recreate since everyone is doing them. It’s nice to put your artistry to the test and have some fun making your own version of each of these trends as they come out. From big, feathered brows to neon eyeliner, we cover the current IG trends that everyone is recreating right now.
Big, Feathered Brows
Big, feathered brows are making a big splash on Instagram right now. Creating this look isn’t as difficult as you’d think either. You’re probably used to seeing this look done for editorial shoots or on the runway, but there is a way to make this look wearable for the everyday gal.
Patrick Ta has created a great way to naturally fluff up and feather the brow. Ta is a celebrity makeup artist who created his own makeup line. His line brings that celebrity glamorous makeup to the everyday person and makes it wearable. In fact, he explains just how easy it is to use his product in this tutorial.
Jade rollers seem like they’ve been all over our IG feeds for a while now, and they’re not going anywhere anytime soon. They are said to be useful for everything from sculpting and toning to firming the skin. This has a host of reported benefits, including boosting circulation, enhancing the glow of the skin, reducing puffiness, minimizing fine lines, improving elasticity, detoxifying, and helping your other skincare products penetrate better. Seems like they can do just about anything, doesn’t it?
This jade roller happens to be on sale right now at Nordstrom Rack, and we are actually doing a giveaway right now over on our Instagram that will run through September 18, 2020.
The Zoe Ayla Jade roller is also great at lymphatic drainage with gentle yet consistent use, as it can reduce puffiness and sag around the eye and cheek area.
Pastels have been everywhere lately, and we are here for it. Pastels are probably one of the easiest trends to pull off, since layering pastel eyeshadow is generally nearly impossible from the formulation of the shadows. This makes it much easier for you though. All you have to do is pick a single pastel color and create a beautiful eye shape, and you look like a pro MUA.
Huda Beauty makes some of the best eyeshadow palettes in Sephora. The mini palettes are great, especially for trendy moments. They make it so easy to create a beautiful trendy moment for yourself without breaking the bank on a large full-size palette.
After Zendaya starred on the HBO show Euphoria, we saw everyone creating the iconic makeup looks from the show. The style of makeup we saw was almost like a reset for the beauty community. In the past few weeks, we keep seeing a revisit of this trend. If you think about it, this may seem a little more difficult than it looks. However, with time and a steady hand, you can easily achieve these eye looks with some jewels and eyelash glue.
Duo makes one of the best eyelash glues. The best part about it is that you can usually find it for less than $7. The brush on applicator is our favorite for getting a more controlled application when you are applying your glue. Simply apply some eyelash glue to the back of whatever stones you decide on and then stick them on with some tweezers. If you feel like you can’t get the stones to stick or that they are too heavy, just apply some to the actual stone. Then add a little onto your skin wherever you are going to place it.
Ever since Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande dropped their music video for “Rain On Me”, neon eyeliner seems to be all over our Instagram feeds. We saw both Gaga and Ariana Grande rocking those stunning white liner looks, which quickly sparked a huge wave of recreations on our IG feeds.
NYX makes an amazing neon liner. We love these because they go on pretty opaque and don’t take too long to dry down. You’re most likely going to want many colors or only do a look like this once or twice. That’s why finding a more affordable drugstore product for this look would be ideal.
Your skin, but better
We never thought we’d see this, but we are entering an era where the Instagram baddie makeup style is out, and people are embracing a natural look. We’re starting to see more and more looks with just a tinted moisturizer and some cream blush. Don’t get it confused, though; the art of “your skin, but better” is just as difficult as mastering the art of full-coverage makeup. Luckily, we’re here to show you some amazing products to help pull it off.
Colourpop has one of the best tinted moisturizers on the market, and it’s less than $15. You can either apply a light layer of this to help your skin out, or you could even use this as a very light coverage foundation to build on. As the formula is a tinted moisturizer, it stays very smooth and non-cakey on the skin, giving you that perfect “your skin, but better” look.
Too faced really perfected making a full-coverage concealer with a skin-like formula. You can easily add a few dots of this around the face and under your eyes, and you’ll have a very natural look that still covers up any acne scars or dark circles.
Selena Gomez just recently released her new makeup line with a boatload of new products. One of the products included a liquid blush with a matte or radiant finish. Upon seeing them applied on review videos, we find the blushes do look very promising. A very natural finish can be achieved with little product. We all love a product that is capable of going the extra mile without having to use too much of it. You get the most bang for your buck.
Have you guys seen any of these trends currently on Instagram? We’re sure you’ve seen your favorite influencer or brand release looks or products that go along with some of these. We hope after reading through some of the tips and products that you’ll see just how easy it can be to recreate any of these looks on yourselves. All you need is a little bit of patience. We can’t get enough of the feather browed look. What’s something you want to try out for yourself?
