New year, new beauty trends. Congrats on making it through a great year — now sit tight, and gear up for a new list of makeup madness. Feeling the hee already? Fret not, we’re here to guide you through what’s hot in 2018.

1. Shimmer & Shizzle

We all probably had our fair share of glitter over the holiday season, but honestly… will glitter ever go out of style? Beauty experts say no — and we can’t be more thrilled to sparkle and shine all year round (as usual!).

We recommend:

Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Liquid Eyeshadow, US$24


2. The Blackest Black

Oh, yes. 2017 wasn’t exactly the most happening year for eyeliners, considering the trend placed emphasis on natural, fluttery lashes. Well, not anymore. Ring in the new year with a bold flick of black, courtesy of only the highly-raved eyeliners.

We recommend:

Em Cosmetics Felt Tip / Illustrative Eyeliner, US$15

3. Lashes To The Gods

The hunt for the perfect mascara that curls, lengthens and add volume never really stops, at least not for us Asians with poker straight lashes. Granted that there may be a couple of gems from the drugstore, if you are looking to splurge on a piece of luxury that has been tried and tested, we’ve got you covered.

We recommend:

Diorshow Pump’N’Volume Mascara, US$29.50

4. Golden Glow

Ever since the release of Riri’s winning highlighter in Trophy Wife for her Fenty Beauty line, the craze for golden highlighters got turned back on. Be it a subtle healthy sheen, or a beaming opulent shine, you can bet that the gold glow is the right way to go.

We recommend:

NikkieTutorials x OFRA Cosmetics Everglow Highlighter, US$35

Jouer Cosmetics Powder Highlighter in Citrine, US$24

5. Active Makeup

With all that new year’s resolutions in place, there’s bound to be one that includes “working out more”. Great job if you’re sticking to it — we’re here to serve up some beauty products that’ll complement your regime so while you exercise to keep fit, your skin remains in tip-top shape too.

We recommend:

e.l.f. Active range, from US$3

CliniqueFIT range, from US$14 (limited edition!)
