Celebrity Makeup Artist Shares Beauty Trends for the New Year.

During this year’s most elite fall runway shows, Mary Kay Glam Squad Member and Celebrity Stylist, Lawrence “Lo” VonRumpf, spotted the hottest makeup looks! Complementing the latest trends for this holiday season, Lo has the 411 on this year’s makeup must-haves to keep you on-trend well into the New Year!

“Not only have I seen bold, burgundy lips and colored eyeliner on the runways this season, but they’ve also been spotted on the red carpet! The combination of these two daring looks is the perfect sultry appeal for the holidays, especially during parties and events,” Lo said.

Emma Stone looks great in both the burgundy lip look and colored eyed  trend.

Mary Kay Eyeliner in Rich Jade or Steely ($12)

  • This long-wearing, ultra-creamy formula glides on smooth for waterproof, smudge-proof and fade-resistant wear.

Mary Kay Creme Lipstick in Blaze Satin or Rich Fig ($15)

In addition to vibrant colors, Lo was excited to spot the all-natural look trending this year, “fresh faced models with a minimalistic approach to makeup strutted down the runway this season. The nude look is fabulous for the fall and winter months!”
