#CarveComeliness: Take Your Eyes to the Max! | CARVE AFRICA

More is more is MORE in beauty right now. Bigger and bolder! Colours are brighter and the rules are out the window.

A series called “Euphoria” has reminded us of these trends . The series has hauled 80’s editorial looks from the runways, to the streets and has given them a modern carefree look. From “Bold Colour Highlight” to “Diffused Blush” and they’re here to stay.
While many of these beauty trends are far from subtle, they never feel overdone. Think washes of colour instead of complex eye looks, thick natural feathered brows instead of Instagram arches and over-lined lips. While we encourage stepping out of your beauty comfort zone, don’t fuss if the thought of bright blue eye shadow gives you a panic attack .
Above all, beauty trends in 2020 are about celebrating the individual, so throw some pearls on your eyes, pile on the blush, and read on for the 2020 beauty trends you’re about to start seeing everywhere. Let’s get RETRO!
