2018 is almost over and we’re looking forward to a bright new year! I have so many amazing things on the horizon but first let’s dish on what the beauty trends of 2019 will be.
There had been a slow and steady move away from the super polished Instagram makeup that we’ve seen a lot in 2018. In particular, expect to see a trend of soft powdery brows in 2019. As fashion and runway shows showcase a combed up brow, you’ll see consumers and celebs embrace a more natural brow look too. Brands will emphasize clear brow gels with hold like MAC’s Brow Set available now.
The authority in color, Pantone, has named the 2019 color of the year Living Coral. This warm tone comprised of peach and pink will be a big trend since it is super easy for anyone to wear. You can pull off a pop of living coral on eyes, cheeks or lip. Try Too Faced’s White Peach Shadow Palette to ease into the trend.
Glowing skin will always be in style but 2019 will bring in more jelly textures for highlighters. Butter London has had a collection of Glazen eye and cheek products for a bit now and many brands will be following suit. As we look to regions like Korea for new technical innovations in beauty you’ll see jelly textures in cleansers, moisturizers and highlighters come stateside.
I predict 2019 will be the year of the lip oil. Brands are taking strong interest in skincare infused and multi tasking products. 2018 saw the return of lip gloss so a high shine, sheer pigment like these new lip oils from Kiehl’s are the future. Try dapping a bit on the lids for a fashion forward look.
