I’m sad to say—matte is on its way out.
It’s hard to come to terms with; I, too, will mourn the time spent fixating on matte lips, the edgy-yet-girly flat manicures, and the no-shine skin I have been working so hard for. Nevertheless, I am excited to report that there are quite a few trends I am looking forward to!
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t miss that fresh-faced, sparkling, youthful skin look. There’s just something about looking like you’re naturally glistening effortlessly that truly makes me feel like I’m on a Vanity Fair cover.
I can’t wait to embrace some shine, possibly a little sparkle, and—most importantly—some life back into my lips. I have always been a big fan of a creamy lipstick, and this is one trend I can’t wait to welcome back!
Nails that Shine.
Matte nails will always hold a place in my heart. They made me feel like a total #GirlBoss that could handle everything and anything thrown her way. I felt feminine, strong, and a little rough around the edges with my flat black nails. But if I’m embracing these other fresh and exciting trends, it makes sense that I welcome this shiny-and-sparkly-nail trend as a part of the look.
I will always remember the days of Matte, but am looking forward to life with a little sparkle.
