  • We asked professional makeup artists to share their 2023 makeup trend predictions.
  • 2022 saw bold lips, satin skin, and bright berry hues, but 2023 is ready to welcome dark, intense looks.
  • These makeup trends will involve making small tweaks to your makeup routine that will have big impact.

As 2022 comes to a close, we would be remiss not to look back on how much we have changed as beauty-lovers. Slightly more relaxed restrictions meant that our perfected feathered brow techniques and perfectly dewy blush would finally get their time in the spotlight. But as we reach the end of the year, we're starting to see a big shift from the effortless "clean girl" look to a more grunge aesthetic.

While makeup in 2022 was all about bold but practical glam — think embellishments, bold lips, and eye-catching hues paired with base makeup that will last — 2023 is about bold makeup that doesn't necessarily have to be practical. We're prepared to see heavy eye makeup paired with messy eyeliner, heavily powdered faces, and the ever popular "marinated" makeup. We've asked professional makeup artists to lay out exactly what we can expect in the new year to stay ahead of the curve. Join us in whipping out our makeup brushes as we start to rethink our routines for the new year. After all, 2023 has to have a few main characters, and they might as well be us.
