New year, new beauty trends. That’s the saying, right? To help you sort through it all, we’ve rounded up the best looks to try each month in 2018. (And none require the Kirakira+ app.)
January: Wear a Stretchy Headband Outside Spin Class
They’re slightly more sporty than your average headband, so what better way to show that you’re hitting the gym (wink, wink) at the start of the new year?
February: K-Beauty Scalp Care
With South Korea hosting the Winter Olympics this year, February is the best time to try that ten-step scalp routine you’ve been eyeing.
March: Dark Green Eye Shadow
Whether you’re into celebrating St. Patrick’s Day or not, this is the month to bring gorgeous green makeup into your life. Everyone will be—dare we say?—envious.
April: Glossy Lips
April showers may bring May flowers, but the real moisture and shine should come from your makeup. Up the ante with glossy lips for spring.
May: Thick Spider-Like Lashes
Here's your chance to be perfectly imperfect when applying mascara.
June: Fresh-Faced Skin
Makeup is the last thing on your mind in the thick of the summer heat. So go bare. We understand.
July: A Slicked-Back Hairdo
This style is sleek and low maintenance. Also recommended: a deep side part.
August: Long, Embellished braids
“Long hair, don’t care” is the motto for August. Get into it just before the seasonal changes. And don't forget to add some glam embellishments, like metal rings or a bejeweled headband.
September: Vampy Lips
Deep reds and burgundy set the scene for a perfect autumn date night—or a super festive fall party.
October: Graphic Eyeliner
Never could quite master the cat eye? Then go all in on graphic lines. For Halloween, make them as scary—err, fun—as you wish.
November: Bright Blush
Fake a winter glow with a bright pink blush (even if you haven't been dashing through the snow).
December: Champagne Giltter
Think subtle gold and bronze sparkles for the most festive month of the year. This look is everything you need for holiday parties and beyond.
