While the New Year comes with a bevy of trend forecasts, I’m always most excited to learn about makeup trends. As a true makeup girl through and through, I’m always going to be the first person to try the latest trend, no matter what it is.
There’s no doubt that 2022 was a fantastic year for all things makeup. After all, it was the first year we began to shed our masks and reenter society, and with that came many, many makeup looks. People were ready to put products on their faces! We saw the emergence of face gems, ultra-glossy lips, siren eyes, and more.
Next year, expect the makeup trends to get even better. The ’90s are back with glamorous goth looks, supermodel-inspired makeup, and extra-lined lips. To get insider intel on this year’s makeup trends, I reached out to a heavy hitter: Cat Quinn, the executive director of global trends at MAC. No one has their finger quite on the beauty pulse like Quinn does, which is what makes her trend predictions so sharp. Keep reading for Quinn’s 2023 forecast.
