It’s all about starting fresh in the new year. Maybe you’ve decided to make a big change like look for a new job or move to a new city in 2018. Or maybe you want to do something on a smaller scale—like try a new makeup look. If that’s the case, then you’re in the right place, because we’ve rounded up some of the top makeup trends for 2018. Keep reading for gorgeous makeup looks to try in the new year (and be sure to stock your bag with all the eye shadows, highlighters, and lipsticks you’ll need to create these looks). We have a feeling you’re going to find your new favorite in our list below!

Makeup Look #1: Bronze Smoky Eye

Who says a smoky eye has to be done with gray and black eye shadows? Switch things up in 2018 by opting for a bronze smoky eye made with metallic eye shadow instead. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Metallic Eye Shadow in Brass Knuckles to get the look. Apply a lighter eye shadow all over your lid, then apply this metallic shade just in your crease.

Makeup Look #2: Gold Highlighter

Highlighter has become really popular in the last couple of years (strobing, FTW!), but lately, we’ve been seeing a lot of one highlighter shade in particular—and that would be gold. The good news is, there’s a gold highlighter out there for every skin tone. One easy way to add a touch of gold to your face is by swiping the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Galaxy Stick in Gold on your cheekbones. (For more tips on rocking this makeup look, read our article, How to Wear Gold Eyeliner on Every Skin Tone.)

Makeup Look #3: Super-Dark Lipstick

The vampy lip is another makeup trend that shows no signs of slowing down in 2018. In fact, we saw it on lots of fashion week runways for the upcoming year! Use a liquid lipstick, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Liquid Lipstick in Deeply Disturbed, to get the look. (Just make sure to keep a micellar water for waterproof makeup on hand to remove your liquid lipstick at the end of the day!)

Makeup Look #4: Ultra-Graphic Cat Eye

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that a black cat eye will always be in style. But in 2018, consider upping the drama by creating a seriously graphic version of a cat eye with liquid eyeliner. What we mean: For this look, you’d use a black liquid eyeliner (such as the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints Eyeliner in Black Party) to draw thick lines on your upper and lower lids, connecting them with flicks at both the inner and outer corners of your eyes.

Makeup Look #5: Extreme Lash Volume

Bold lashes were always in—but now they’re being taken to even bigger heights with one of our very favorite types of mascara—fiber mascara. The L’Oréal Paris Voluminous X Fiber Mascara features a black primer on one end a fiber-infused mascara on the other for the appearance of major volume and length. Just use the primer, then follow up with the mascara. Keep the rest of your makeup simple so that all eyes stay on your gorgeous lashes.

Makeup Look #6: Metallic Lipstick

Metallics are in for 2018 in a big way, in fashion and in beauty. Rock a glitzy shade on your lips with metallic lipstick. The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Paints/Lips in Moon Lust is a gorgeous rose gold-esque shade. For a really on-trend look in 2018, try painting on a color-blocked lip using multiple metallic lipstick shades. (Learn How to Do a Color-Blocked Lip here.)

Makeup Look #7: Full-Looking Brows

Don’t forget about your brows in the new year! During recent runway shows, models sported beautiful bold brows. Get in on the trend by using the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Boost & Set Brow Mascara to thicken the appearance of your brows, then highlight your arch with the L’Oréal Paris Brow Stylist Brow Raiser Highlighter Duo.
