01 Mar 7 Beauty Trends for 2019
I don’t know about you but I love that a new year brings a whole host of new beauty trends to experiment with. Here I’ve shared a few of my favourite beauty trends for 2019, along with some of my salon treatments that will keep you on trend throughout the rest of the year.
Beauty Trends for 2019
1. Quality over quantity
2019 is the year we strip back our skincare routines. Let’s concentrate on using quality products over the quantity of products. Using fewer products with higher quality, dual-purpose ingredients has it’s benefits. Firstly, is a great way to save time. Secondly, it can save you money. Think moisturisers with SPF benefits.
2. Almond Nails
Believe it or not there are actually trends relating to nail shapes and this year it’s all about the almond shaped nail. Much more practical than last year’s ‘coffin nail’ (do a quick Google search if you’ve no idea what I’m talking about,) almond nails are a celebrity favourite and the perfect shape to elongate your fingers. Fancy trying them yourself? Book a manicure today.
3. Greater transparency on skincare product labels
One of the great things about the Internet is that it empowers consumers with knowledge they may not otherwise have. A good example of this is with skincare. Whereas in the past skincare brands could get away with being pretty vague with their formulation details, today consumers are much more savvy when it comes to ingredients. They refuse to accept things at face value. Because of this, 2019 is likely to see greater transparency from brands when labelling their products.
4. Liquid Exfoliators
Scrubs are out and liquid exfoliators are in. Truth be told, they sound a little scary but fear not, they’re one of the most effective ways to remove dead skin cells and brighten your complexion. There are plenty of products you can buy on the high street but if you’re after long-lasting, noticeable results, why not try a chemical peel? They’re not only great for rejuvenating the skin but tackling signs of ageing too.
5. Beauty-related smartphone apps
In 2019, expect to see an increase in the number of brands creating smartphone apps that can be paired with the latest at-home facial tools. Sounds pretty cool right? There are already apps that provide personalised solutions and real-time skin diagnostics and I for one am looking forward to seeing what they come up with next!
6. Natural lash lifts
There’s nothing new about a lash lift, it’s a service I’ve been providing for years but apparently, there’s been a real increase in the number of people searching for natural lash lift hacks online. Some hacks involve using aloe vera and grapeseed oil but if you fancy a fuss-free natural lash lift carried out by an experienced professional, I offer both LVL lashes or Elleebana treatments at the salon.
7. Gorgeous glowing skin
It’s true, gorgeous skin never goes out of style but the whole ‘I’ve just got back from having a professional facial, look how lovely my natural skin is’ look is a big trend for 2019; with skincare products being every bit as important as makeup itself. Get the glow with regular exfoliation and keep your skin plump and hydrated with a good quality moisturiser. Opt for minimalist makeup and let your beautiful complexion do the talking.
