Makeup Styles For the face
1. The natural makeup
So, as you can probably see, even if the makeup look from above features a classic red lip, the eyes are almost completely naked. This is the secret for this kind of timeless natural look. You should only apply an eyeshadow shade that’s identical to the color of your skin followed by a few layers of mascara this time. We need to make the eyes pop but without any crazy colors on the lids. Deal with your eyebrows by filling any empty spots with a pencil and then by brushing them with a spooly and transparent gel, and that’s it for the eyes. The one in the picture is a complete look that you don’t necessarily have to follow if you don’t want to. For now, we are only talking about the eyes and about how certain looks, like the bold rep lip one, are forever trendy and fashionable wherever you travel to.
2. The timeless bohemian makeup
This second example of a timeless makeup look is definitely more suited for artists, dreamers, and those people who absolutely adore this bohemian vibe. This look is all about being free, one with the nature, and at peace with yourself, something that will never go out of trend. For this look, your hair should be aither braided in uniue ways or left to flow in the wind. You can also add some flower crowns and match them with your outfit that should also be flowy. Your eye makeup should be based on earthly or mauvy tones. Put on a few layers of mascara and go all in with the blush. You want to look as rosy-cheeked as possible. Keep your skin hydrated and use a light-coverage foundation mixed with an illuminating primer for that dewy look. As for the lips, a juicy gloss in a nude or reddish shade is just perfect. As bohemian as it can get, without going out of trend at all.
For the eyes
3. The smoky eye
The smoky eye is definitely one of those looks that people will do and reinterpret over and over again. If this doesn't make it timeless, we don't know what will. Matte, using black and grey shades or other colors, glittery, glossy, with or without falsies, and in any combinations, the smoky eye makeup look is no longer just makeup: it's an accessory that women from all over the world proudly wear on special occasions. It doesn't even matter how you choose to combine it, with what lipstick shade or if you have a matte or dewy skin finish. The important thing is that the smoky eye is there and will forever remain one of the classics of makeup. Like a member of the hall of fame, and we love it!

Even today's celebrities adore this vintage look. Just take a peek at Gwen Stefani, Ditta von Teese or Margot Robbie.
