Matte has been the king of all makeup finishes for quite some time. Everything from foundations to powders, eyeshadows and lip colours has worshipped matte in varied forms – velvet matte, powder matte, metallic matte, and so on. However, come 2019, things take a U-turn as makeup traverses the glossy route. Runways, magazine covers, and Instagram feeds are the testimony to this new trend that’s all about the glow. To help you gear up for the paradigm shift, we’ve put together a list of makeup must-haves, which let you rock the glossy trend like a pro.
