    You may think that, as beauty editors, we here at R29 would be totally on top of our game when it comes to trying out the newest beauty trends. Cobalt liner, neon shadow, even white nails — it's all temporary (and, duh, kind of our job), so why not take these of-the-moment shades for a spin? Well, dear readers, we have a confession for you: Sometimes, we're not as daring with the trend-trying as we'd like to be.

We're listening, ladies, so tell us — which of these trends are you most excited about, and how will you rock the look?

The Prettiest Makeup You'll See All Day
