Starting Over: How to Reboot Your Makeup for 2016

It’s 2016! Woo hoo! Now that the ball has dropped, the countdown has come and gone and the confetti has been cleaned up it’s time to get serious … about your makeup. We loved 2015 as much as the last girl, but we are so ready to hit the ground running on our 2016 makeup routine. So, stop writing down those New Year’s Resolutions (you’re not gonna follow them anyway) and find out how to recharge your makeup!

New Makeup Tips for 2016

Change Up Your Color Palette

With the New Year, comes a new color scheme. And, we’re not just referring to Pantone’s colors of the year. In addition to Serenity and Rose Quartz there’s a whole new range of colors that will be splashed across our faces in 2016. According to our makeup pros, shades of gray and bright pinks will be huge come January, so it’s time to break out your Urban Decay Naked Smoky Eyeshadow Palette.

Stock Up on Highlighter

Crisp, matte complexions will take a back seat (for a while at least) next year as dewy, glowing faces come into play. Now, by dewy we don’t mean greasy. So avoid over-shimmery or sparkly skin by being strategic with your highlighter. Learn how to strobe like a pro and invest in a dewy foundation. Boom, you’re golden!

Learn the Art of “No-Makeup” Makeup

Naturally lovely, flawless complexions are all the rage in the New Year. Perfect the scientifically proven “no-makeup” look and let your natural, beautiful self shine in 2016!

Get a New Blush

New year, means new blush. Well, it does in our book anyway. Switch up your flush and try a coral-or peach-colored blush that aligns with the natural look we previously discussed. And don’t forget to blend, blend, blend!

Product Recommendations: Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush in Pop of Peach, Lancôme Blush Subtil in Shimmer Peach Lingerie, NYX Rouge Cream Blush in Orange
