2017 was all about having that gorgeous highlight, which is still trending. Highlighting isn’t going anywhere anytime soon from what I see. It has become part of my make-up routine ever since highlighting was introduced. But we are in 2018, and it is a new a year for a new makeup trend and 2018 will be all about showing off your pretty eyes with stunning new eyeshadow palettes.

I mentioned a few favorite brands that are soon to launch their eyeshadow palettes for spring and summer of 2018. But, let me tell you, there are more shadow palettes coming soon, these were just a few. Some brands are launching more than one palette at a time for this season and of course throughout the year. I can’t say who or when just yet, but if you keep up with the NinerTimes, I will make sure to keep all of you updated with new releases. Like I said, pretty eyes in stunning eye shadows is the trend for 2018 and we will be seeing a lot of more creative eye looks with these new launches.
