When new looks in cosmetics, skincare and hair hit the runways and the streets, you might have a hard time jumping on the bandwagon. Whether the fads seem uncomfortable or unappealing, you might view them skeptically and wait for better ones. Right now, though, there are many beauty trends you can support.
From fun makeup to convenient cuts, you can embrace these latest crazes because they go beyond a surface-level aesthetic. Check out these 8 trends and why we can get behind them.
At-Home Lash Lifts
Perky lashes are in, and rather than getting extensions, many people are going for lash lifts. This process is a way to perm your eyelashes. Natural methods that feature grapeseed oil, petroleum jelly or aloe vera are becoming popular. The natural lash lift trend is a way to boost the beauty you already have — plus, it’s a fun DIY project.
Witch Hazel Skincare
Using witch hazel as a skin toner has been revived in recent years, but this practice is an age-old trick. A home remedy for acne and oily skin, this herbal product can refresh your face and improve your complexion. It’s also pretty easily found and can be picked up at most beauty supply stores.
When it comes to this skincare trend, we are all about jumping on this bandwagon! The product incorporates calming components and antioxidants that can help soothe bug bites, stings, rashes and even poison oak reactions! In addition to all of this, witch hazel is known to aid acne and even reduce oily skin!
Bold Lip Hues
The minimal makeup look is having a major moment right now, and striking lip colors are back. We are all here for a major bold lip color moment, which serves as a welcome antidote to the neutral palette that has been trending in cosmetics for the past couple of years. Deep pinks and daring reds in particular are not only flirty and fun, but they also give a little bit of an edgy vibe to an everyday makeup look.
Many influencers and fashionistas in the know have been rocking silver hair regardless of their age. Internet searches on how to achieve the look and shade have increased, and a silver ‘do has become one of the trendiest colors for dying hair in 2019. If you are beginning to go gray, you can embrace the color with this chic hairstyle.
If you are thinking of dying your hair gray this year, you should keep a few important things in mind. Before making an appointment with your hair stylist, you should be aware that you will need to get your hair bleached before going platinum. Be sure to show your stylist a photograph of someone with the hair color you are looking for so they know what kind of color formula to create.
Many celebrities are chopping off their locks for a shorter bob. This hair trend combines a daring trend with ease and convenience. In addition to the practicality of these shorter cuts, they also present the perfect opportunity to play around with a variety of earrings, like diamond studs to compliment the cut or chandeliers to accentuate it. Who wouldn’t be thrilled about spending less time styling long hair, especially with these cute accessory options!
Fluorescent clothing and makeup are dominating fashion, and rocking a neon palette in small doses can be a bold and eye-catching statement. From lime to tangerine, a neon color palette can refresh your wardrobe and give a whole new look to any outfit. These colors are often paired with neutrals or woven in as accents for a more wearable look.
If you are looking at just beginning to experiment with bright hues, you may want to start with a more casual streetwear look. Try out some longer, tight-fitted biker shorts in a lime green or orange. Or, add the neon pop of color to your shoestrings to highlight your shoes.
2019 has brought us a new trend of rocking powder-dipped nails. Not only do powder-dipped nails help solve the problem of ruining your nail polish, but this trend is easy and pain free to remove! While you can get this stunning look at a professional salon, you can also use the dipping powder at home, helping you to get beautiful nails for less!
Find Beauty Trends You Can Support
We might not necessarily be a fan of every trend that is spotted on the streets in New York, or caught on the runways in Paris or Milan, but these trends we’ve highlighted have a plethora of benefits that will make your everyday makeup and outfit looks turn heads.
