Wondering what’s in and what’s out? Here is our list of what’s trending in the beauty world for the coming year. And yes, they aren’t just reserved for the catwalk.

Mellow cat eye – All you need for this look is your favourite pink eyeshadow and a jet black liner. Extend a thin, barely-there flick from either corners and you’d be good to go. With super models like Bella Hadid flaunting this minimalistic look, the feminine cat eye is sure to stay this season.

Fierce red – Feeling bold? Flaunt it with red lips, they say. We say, take it a notch higher and match your red lipstick with a red blush. Keep the rest of the makeup simple; you wouldn’t want to overdo this look.

Gloss on – There’s something about super-glossy skin that is undeniably surreal. Couple it with nude lips and terracotta eyeshadows for a truly unique look.

Neon– If you’re pressed for time and just have a few quick seconds for a liner, go for a lime green, electric blue or fluorescent yellow colour. Yes, that’s literally it. A pop of colour is all you need.

Natural lashes – If you prefer to steer clear of those artificial lashes, the good news is that natural lashes are all the rage right now. Just make sure you find the perfect voluminous mascara that works for you and don’t be shy to use a few coats.

Blush all the way – Aiming for that rosy look? Simply opt for a rosy-pink blush and matching lip stain. Hydration is the key here so make sure you’ve got a cream blush and a heavily moisturizing lip stain.

Soft and sheer – It’s time to bring out those metallic eyeshadows. But remember the golden rule, if you’re going loud on the eyes, keep the lips soft. A dewy shade of berry will add the necessary colour without looking overpowering.

Big natural hair – If you’re a curly head, let it show. The messy, roll-out-of bed look is trending this year with celebrities embracing their big curls.

Neutral classic– Go the classic route with a well-contoured face, smoky eyes and a pastel pink or purple lipstick. There’s no going wrong with this look.

Play with gold – The runways saw a lot of gold this year from simple shimmering gold eyeshadows to gold foil eyelids. The colour is a favourite! But wearing it can be tricky. What’s our advice? Go for a style that suits the occasion.
