Now that 2017 is over and 2018 is here, new beauty trends are going to pop up as people try out different styles.

Graphic nail designs—Geometric prints, minimalist accent nails, and negative space on nails are going to be big this year. Bright eyes—Eyeliners and shadows in bright colors (think bright blue from the 1980s) are going to be on-trend in 2018. Classic lipstick bullets—For years, liquid lipsticks have dominated the market, but this year, the humble ballet is making a comeback. Glitter—Think rhinestones, gems, and sequins adhered to the eyelids to make any look sparkle. Other hot trends for 2018 will include lip tints, wet and wild hair, and thick, black eyeliner around the bottom and top lids.
