SS ’18 Beauty Trends with NYX Cosmetics

Straight out of Hollywood, NYX Cosmetics has long been at the centre of trend progression across the world. Combining high quality beauty products with affordable price tags, NYX is forever on everyone’s beauty wish list throughout each season. With a full range of beauty buys available, from mirror-effect gloss and striking glitter palettes, to jet-black liners and flawless foundations, NYX has everything you need keep you on trend.

Here’s how you can recreate our 5 favourite SS18 beauty trends using the best of NYX Cosmetics.

high shine pout


Trend 1: High-shine pout

It was out with the matte and in with the gloss backstage at Fashion Week this year as runway beauties modelled high-shine mirrored pouts. Think raspberry pinks, bold fuchsias and even classic reds- then pop a touch of glistening gloss on top.   Try dabbing on NYX’s Mega Shine Lip Gloss for a full coverage, Diamond Sparkle Lipgloss for added glitz, or beautifully pigmented Jumbo Lip Pencil with Sheer Tube Lipgloss on top as a juicy highlight. 

striking liner

Trend 2: Striking statement liner

A jet black eyeliner is a staple piece in our cosmetics arsenal, but what’s new this season is its placement. Rather than hugging the lash line, your liners free to be placed anywhere you like. It stole the show at Lanvin and MAC, and Tommy Hilfiger’s power liner made waves among the runway.

What’s great is that this look is perfect for those of us who struggle with perfecting our liner flicks as it’s less about precision and more about making a statement. For easy application try NYX Cosmetics auto eyeliner pencil, Liquid Eyeliner to create pattern and flare, or NYX Felt Tip Eyeliner for wide coverage.

Trend 3: Mermaid muse

SS18 beauty looks are all about attention grabbing colour as was illustrated by the mermaid inspired eyeshadow palettes across the runways. It was full coverage sweeps of opulent blues at Marni and House of Holland, while Fendi showcased the emerald power liner. To pay homage to this peacocking trend we suggest using NYX’s Double Sided Eyeliner and Shadow in baby green or, for a more daring look, a bold swoosh of Eyeshadow Trio in Aquamarine right across the lid.


Trend 4:  Glitter bomb

The one trend that seemed to dominate all four fashion weeks was make up artists’ obsession with anything and everything that sparkled. Glitter eyelids ruled the runways at Topshop, Stella Jean and Ashish, while jewels and rhinestones packed a punch at Ryan Lo, Jeremy Scott and Dries Van Noten. Try the look yourself by sweeping NYX’s Glitter on the Go, Glitter Cream Palette or Glitter Mania Jumbo pencil on the eyelids or top of the cheek for a festival-ready highlight.

To stop your glitter from sticking in places you’d rather it didn’t, first cover the area with NYX Cosmetics Loose Face Powder, then apply a layer of eyelash glue, and once clear dab on NYX Cosmetics Glitter Mania for a sparkling coverage that will stay put all day.

Trend 5: Porcelain Skin

We’re used to models rocking pristine skin, but the trend for SS18 is all about the effortless.  This summer, prepare to let your skin take centre stage with a flawless finish, minimal contouring shades, but layers of illuminating highlights. This simple look was perfectly executed by the likes of Roland Mouret, Rodarte, and Vicky Zhang. Try applying NYX’s The Makeup Liquid Foundation and set with NYX Loose Face Powder before finishing with a light dusting of NYX Mosaic Powder Blush. Keep eyelids and lips neutral with Eyeshadow Trio in Barely There and NYX Cosmetics Black Label Lipstick in Champagne.
