2020 Beauty Trends That Are Taking Over Instagram
Claire Miles - January 6, 2020


By Shel Silverstein

My dad gave me one dollar bill
'Cause I'm his smartest son,
And I swapped it for two shiny quarters
'Cause two is more than one!

And then I took the quarters
And traded them to Lou
For three dimes -- I guess he didn't know
That three is more than two!

Just then, along came old blind Bates
And just 'cause he can't see
He gave me four nickels for my three dimes,
And four is more than three!

And then I took the nickels to Hiram Coombs
Down at the seed-feed store,
And the fool gave me five pennies for them,
And five is more than four!

And then I went and showed my dad,
And he got red in the cheeks
And closed his eyes and shook his head --
Too proud of me to speak!

Though we’ve just welcomed in 2020, it might feel like we’re living in 1990 all over again. Remember the good old days of pink eyeshadow, goth lips, and cat eyes? In 2020, beauty trends have departed from the days of no-makeup makeup and natural brows and welcomed in making makeup fun again.


We’re seeing more and more playful looks from sparkly, costume-y trends that popped. Celebrities, beauty bloggers, and influencers are already wearing the out-there trends set to take the main stage in 2020. We’re seeing artsy eyeliner, dramatic eyeshadow, and ’90s beauty trends. Here are the top beauty trends that will be taking over in 2020.

Get ready to see a whole lot of graphic, negative-space eyeliner. Try the look with a neon liner or max-up the glamour by adding a sweep of metallic eyeshadow across your lid just like Amandla Stenberg.

This look is so much fun, we’re loving it! Smudge some electric tones in unexpected places on your eyelids. Don’t worry, you don’t need to follow in Halsey’s footsteps and lose your eyebrows to pull off the look
