The launch of Fenty Beauty ignited a quiet revolution. With 40 shades of foundation, one for us each, Rihanna made a point that was almost forgotten in the Beauty industry--diversity. Steering away from stereotypes with iridescent highlights, bold eye-makeup and boundary-breaking shades, this season is all about inclusivity. POPxo Beauty helps you decode this season’s trends without having to give up your identity.

Thanks to the woman who made us want to try green lipstick, feel free to add a bit of shimmer to your eyelids this season. Shades of blue like cobalt, turquoise and violet lend luminosity. Draw out lines with graphic liners and sheer eyeshadows.
Fenty Beauty’s Galaxy Holiday Collection is already bringing a fresh perspective to smokey eyes. Steering away from dark colours, look for sheer pink, champagne, amber, smokey brown and platinum to achieve a soft smokey eye.
Sheer shades can also be doubled up as highlighters too. Fill, line and set your brows.
A GLOWING CANVAS
Don’t settle for a shade lighter than your skin. Instead of looking retouched with layers of foundation on your face, aim for a soft matte look. Start by using a pore-minimising primer on your face. Use your fingers to apply a foundation in dot method. Blend outwards using a full-foundation brush.
Rihanna’s gloss bombs were built on universally flattering shades like peach and yellow gold. High on shine and low on pigment, nude glosses are the perfect way to achieve fuller lips. Top a nude gloss in the centre of your lips over your favourite lipstick to achieve this look.

Pixie dust is no longer Tinkerbell's ally, it’s yours to shine with.
The highlight is to achieve a multi-dimensional look. Look for lightweight and buildable shimmer sticks in either matte or shimmer. You can either use the same highlighter on the corner of your eyes and cheekbones or choose complementing shades in peaches, pinks and nudes to create a holographic theme.
