With 2023 coming to an end, Google has released the most hyped beauty trends of this year.
From cloud skin makeup to faux freckles and cherry cola lips, explore these trendy looks and learn how to recreate them for a stunning appearance.
Thanks to Cloud Skin Makeup, Matte makeup has made a comeback in 2023. Here's a quick crash course on what cloud skin makeup means: It is a makeup technique that creates a soft, matte finish without appearing flat or shiny.
The look is meant to mimic the way clouds look when the sun shines through them. Super easy to achieve, this trend was coined by MAC Cosmetics senior artist Dominic Skinner.

Even though this trend is not so much caught up in India, faux or fake freckles have created quite a stir in the west. Some people called it the Megan Markle effect.
In case you missed it, the Faux freckle trend basically means to create your favorite looks and adding fake freckles to it. There are various ways to create such looks, including a freckle pen, eyebrow pencils, and some people even use Heena.
Take that pen/Tube and start making dots on your face after the makeup.

This year, tasty cherry cola lips made it to the top 3 of beauty trends. To create these lips, imagine the bottle of Coca-Cola with the two main colors - Red and Black.
Well, you will do the same for your lips. Take a dark color like black or dark blue as lip liners, then fill in your lips with lighter colors like light red or juicy pink gloss, and voilà, you're done.
