In the cosmetic world, trends come and go, but there’s one that has captured the hearts of makeup professionals everywhere: Golden Hour Makeup.
Inspired by the breathtaking moments just before sunset, this trend is all about embracing warm, sunlit hues that accentuate your natural beauty and create a mesmerising glow. We all want that glow!
In this blog post, we’ll dive into the captivating world of Golden Hour Makeup, exploring its origins, key elements, and how you can effortlessly incorporate this trend into your beauty routine.
The Magic Behind Golden Hour
The Golden Hour, that magical time shortly before sunset when the sunlight is soft and warm, has long been cherished by photographers. This enchanting phenomenon has now made its way into the realm of makeup, with artists drawing inspiration from the rich hues and soft lighting to create a makeup trend that’s both timeless and captivating.
Key Elements of Golden Hour Makeup:
- Warm and Earthy Tones: Central to the Golden Hour Makeup trend are warm and earthy shades that mimic the colours of a setting sun. Think soft golds, bronzes, warm oranges, and peachy pinks that bring a sun-kissed radiance to your complexion.
- Luminous Skin: Achieving a lit-from-within glow is a cornerstone of Golden Hour Makeup. Dewy, luminous skin that looks naturally radiant and hydrated is a must.
- Soft and Smudged Eyeshadow: The eyes play a significant role in Golden Hour Makeup. Soft, smudged eyeshadows in warm tones create a dreamy and effortless look. Opt for matte or shimmering shades to enhance the depth and warmth of your eyes.
- Glossy Lips: Embrace the trend by opting for glossy lips in peachy, nude, or soft coral shades. Glossy lips add a touch of freshness and youthfulness to your overall look.
- Subtle Contouring: Golden Hour Makeup focuses on enhancing your natural features rather than heavy sculpting. Subtle contouring and bronzing can help define your bone structure while maintaining a soft, natural appearance.
