Here are the top 10 beauty trends we predict for 2019…
1.) Bold lips. If you watched the most recent Golden Globes awards show to see what trends the stars were showing off, you probably noticed some bold lip colors on the red carpet. We saw some beautiful lips adorned with such colors as corral, bright reds, and other striking tones that added striking emphasis to the hair, makeup, and fashionable dresses on the star-lit scene. In 2019, you’ll need a strong color pallet to get your lips noticed from across the room.
2.) Lash lifts are in. This year, it also won’t be enough to apply killer mascara to make your lashes stand out. Thanks to the new lash lifting trend, extensions are no longer limited to hair on your head. You can find products that naturally increase the length, in the form of oils and tonics. And there are other options that use false fibers that have a very natural look.
3.) Minimalist is more. The minimalist trend that we’ll see this year in fashion and accessories will extend into makeup and skincare products. Companies will try to capitalize on the concept called “skip-care,” which emphasizes simplicity in a complicated world of beauty products. This trend was started in Korea, where many brands and innovations of beauty products are born. So expect to see advertisements for products that simplify your beauty routine.
4.) Attention grabbing hair. In 2019, all bets are off when it comes to hairstyles that turn heads. We will continue to see unique cuts that stretch the boundaries of traditional styles. Along with this trend will be an endless rainbow of new colors, and uses of color, unlike anything we’ve ever seen. Look for your local salons to show off their color bar and entice you to think outside your typical color routine. And why not? There’s never been a better time to experiment than now!
5.) Sustainability. In every industry, consumers and businesses are becoming more mindful of sustainable practices. Today’s consumers want to know how products are made, and the values of the companies they support. The beauty industry is already sensitive about animal testing, due to protests about past testing practices that are mostly long gone. But now, companies will start promoting their all-natural, non-toxic ingredients, as well as their efforts to leave behind the smallest carbon footprint possible.
6.) Foiled eye shadow. Makeup trends are always changing, and interesting to keep up with. Like nail art, the right approach to makeup can ice the cake of any fashion statement. Foiled eye shadow is a makeup trend we’ve seen bubbling to the surface over the past several months. If you aren’t sure how to apply a foiled look, you can find plenty of tutorials online. And your local salon professionals would be more than happy to help you in person as well!
7.) Short bangs. We love it when bangs come back in style because so many people overlook how attractive they are. And don’t worry about having to grow them out later on. The in-between styles can be just as fun too! There are many different types of bangs we’ll see this year, as this approach is more versatile than many think. You can go way short with microbangs, or you can go with a more blended, built in look. And there are the traditional mid-length bangs that we’ve been in love with forever.
8.) Hair accessories. Accessories are a must in the world of beauty. We love supplementing our style with trinkets and add-ons that add flair to our look. Expect to see hair accessories this year, such as hats, headbands, claw clips, feathered hair clips, and even crowns and tiaras.
9.) Nail trends. “Bold” seems to be the encompassing theme for 2019’s top beauty trends. Nail color and designs will fit in with this pattern. We will see eye-catching colors, and unique, creative designs adorn the hands of trendsetters and followers this year. If you aren’t sure where to look for inspiration, try Instagram, where there is a world of nail professionals and influencers who are constantly showing off their latest looks.
10.) Dumpling skin. Just when you thought you had your makeup technique down, think again. If you follow makeup trends then you might be familiar with the term “dumpling skin,” which describes a shiny look that transcends foundation into color, giving it a mirror effect. While this trend may not fit into the practicality of an everyday routine, it could be the perfect effect for a big night out or event where you’ll want to stand out.
That completes our top 10 beauty trends for 2019 that we see bubbling to the surface. Which ones are you ready to rock? And which ones do you think are missing from our list?
