2023 is well underway and, with that, we need to fill you in on the all-important makeup looks predicted to take the beauty world by storm. From grunge eyeliner and thick mascara, to the barely there face base, there’s something new for everyone, whatever your makeup preference. Taking inspiration from celebrities and social media, here’s how to stay on trend in 2023.

Barely There Face Base:

Minimalistic face makeup is certain to flourish in 2023. This consists of glowy and hydrating bases for a minimal but dewy effect, with a focus on clean skin and fresh faces. A brightening and hydrating skincare routine will be your best friend for this look, as well as a dewy primer to lock in that hydrating goodness. As a finishing touch to master this make up trend, a simple but effective tinted moisturizer can create the ‘no makeup makeup effect’, providing long-lasting hydration and a natural-looking, luminous finish.

Expert tip: Use a damp beauty blender to apply your tinted moisturizer for a flawless finish!

For this look, we recommend:

  1. Revolution hydration skincare boost moisturiser
  2. Super base primer vitamin base primer
  3. Makeup revolution create flocked sponge

Statement Lips

In 2023, step away from the subtle, plain nudes of lockdowns past. Transfer your dusty pinks and natural nudes for a glamorous, dramatic pop of color. Whether your bold color of choice is red, orange or brown, you can get creative with this trend and personalize your lip to your style – think of your lips as an extra accessory to your outfit!

For a brown lip look, create the perfect outline with a brown lip liner. And, to bring the statement lip together, add a lustrous sheen to your lip with a clear lip gloss coating over the top of your color to flaunt a bold glossy lip.

Our favorites to make the perfect statement lip are:

  1. Revolution pro lipstick collection
  2. Makeup revolution pout bomb pumping gloss in shade ‘Glaze’ (Glaze)
  3. Revolution x clueless lip liner in shade ‘Tai’


Say goodbye to heavy sculpted contour and hello to rosy cheeks and sun-kissed looks. Blush is likely to become even bigger this year, and we’re all for it! With TikTok viral trends such as ‘the sunburnt look’ and ‘cold girl look’ pushing the long-forgotten makeup product to the front of beauty-lovers minds, blush has made a dramatic return to our everyday makeup bags.

With a variety of blush formulas to choose from, if you’re after a soft matte finish or a dewy complexion, there’s a blush for every skin type and makeup look. Use a cream blush for a seamless, glowing finish or a powder for a tint of color on the temples of your cheeks.

We recommend:

  1. Revolution XX XXccess blush powder (various shades)
  2. Revolution pro hydra bright cream blush (various shades)

The Ultra Dark Eye

Sharpen your eyeliners as the ultra-dark eye is the newest eye makeup trend for 2023. Light brown hues might be a familiar favorite, but it’s time to break out of your comfort zone and create a daring and dark eye look.

Transform your day look to night-time glam with this eye makeup trend by adding black eyeliner or a smudge of shadow. We’d recommend placing the smudged shadow on both the lower and upper lash lines to add depth and drama to your makeup look. Take this a step further and blend the dark with grey and silver shadows to create the perfect ‘imperfect’ smokey eye. Finish your makeup look with a punch of drama with a thick coat of lengthening mascara.

Expert tip: Use a Cream eyeshadow as a base for your daring eye look!

We recommend:

  1. Makeup revolution 5d lash pow mascara
  2. Revolution beauty planet revolution multi-use colour crayon in shade ‘Black’
  3. I heart revolution mini chocolate shadow palette in shade ‘Black Pearl’
