Prepare your beauty bag, because 2018 is bringing with it some surprisingly easy looks you’ll want to try. Many of the year’s top trends are simplified tweaks of already in-vogue looks. (Think boy brows with second-story lashes, or multi-use lip tints for eyes, lips and cheeks).

We’ve combed through the clutter of beauty news, as well as consulted our friends at Pinterest, to find out which beauty and makeup trends we can expect to see in 2018.

Take a look below at the eight beauty trends you’ll want to try out this year:

Unless you live inside a beauty vacuum, it probably seems like everyone you know has ditched her moisturizer in favor of facials oils. The trend will only continue in 2018, as more people learn that oils are actually super good for your skin (and an easy way to get Glossier-model dewy skin). Cleansing oils clean your skin without stripping it of the good oils that keep your face naturally moisturized. A good introductory step to using cleansing oils is by initially removing your makeup with it. Follow it with a smaller amount of your favorite lightweight cleanser. The primary oil cleanser will strip fewer of the naturally good oils in your skin, and after a few uses you'll likely notice softer, healthier, glowing skin. Eventually you'll feel comfortable using just the cleansing oil for a gentler cleansing ritual.Get the look:Simple Kind To Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil ($9)

Geometric nail art
Essie
According to our friends at Pinterest, searches for "geometric nails" have increased at least 83 percent headed into 2018, which means you're more likely to see manicures with clean-cut lines, geo shapes and nice use of negative space. Get the look:Sally Hansen Nail Art Pens ($5.50)

Bright eyeshadow
Milk Makeup
Bright eyes are always on trend, but a little boost of glitter will kick them up a notch. From glittered balms and shadows, to eye-brightening liners and color-popping mascaras, there are plenty of ways to make this trend pop in 2018. Get the look:Urban Decay Heavy Metal Glitter Eyeliner ($20)

Derma rollers
Herbivore Botanicals
At face value (pun intended) derma rollers, or microneedling, look like the beauty trend that we could probably live without. A typical derma roller contains hundreds of tiny needles that poke and prod the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin production. Other versions of facial rollers ditch the needles and instead use crystals like jade to depuff sleepy skin. Either way, these tools are bound to stick around in 2018, as searches for "derma roller" have increased more than 340 percent on Pinterest this year.

Glowing highlighters
Fenty Beauty
Glitter is the name of the game in 2018 (see No. 5), so expect to see plenty of shimmering highlighters this year, too. Thanks to Rihanna's Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter (in Trophy Wife, obvi), golden bronzers and highlighters are the new standard for bright and glowing skin.Get the look:Glossier Haloscope ($22)Too Faced Sun Bunny Natural Bronzer ($30)
