7 Hottest Makeup Trends for 2016 & How to Wear Them in the Real World

About once a year my mom will corner me and my youngest sister and grill us on whether her makeup, hair, and jeans still look on trend. For the longest time, I kind of rolled my eyes while I played along, telling her when it was time to let go of her boot cut jeans and when to bring them back (now). And then I became a mom. Now I’m the one chasing my sister around, asking whether or not it’s still okay to wear my purple eye shadow because I spent a lot of money on it, but I don’t want to be that lady who gets stuck in a time warp and is still wearing her makeup like she did in high school.

Ladies, I got ya. These are the seven of the hottest makeup trends for 2016 that came straight from the runways, onto the faces of my favorite celebs. What’s great is that they’re all easy to do, require limited purchasing, and, best of all, just amp up your pretty, which is all a gal really wants from her makeup anyway, right? And I promise, no time warps here.
