It is exciting to keep up with hair and beauty trends because there is always something new to try. Apart from the innovative offerings, a lot of old techniques and classic products are making a huge comeback so younger audiences can know about them as well.
Of course, not all of these trends are wins but they make the process of discovery quite fun.
Take, for example, the release of magnetic lashes. In theory, they seem perfectly logical as the easiest solution to applying fake lashes. Unfortunately, the structural makeup of the human eye is way more complex for this simple solution to work. But still, trying them out would be interesting
If you are all about the successful trends, rounded up below are eight that are making waves in the beauty industry:
1. Romantic updos
Looking like a heroine in a romantic movie is all the rage these days.
Braids, twists, and knots that pull the hair back and then loosened to achieve volume and to frame the face more softly dominate hair tutorials.
If you have long and thick locks, you can rock these updos easily especially if you follow all the new hair hacks stylists are coming up with. If you have thin hair, however, invest in good hair products like Folexin, or go for clip-on hair extensions. Integrate these to your natural mane for more volume.
2. Natural hair
Banishing hair straightening treatments and tools is not just a trend these days but a movement and advocacy.
In the last three years, more hair stylists have come forward about the best techniques in taking care of and styling naturally curly hair. Along with this, new products have been released to support the natural hair movement.
If you have curly or wavy hair but you still rely on your straightening iron for a good hair day, now is the perfect time to embrace your natural curls. Loving what you are born with is the trend.
With the movement to protect natural hair, stylists are encouraging many to invest in wigs.
There’s no easier way to achieve the colour, cut, and volume that you want for your crown than by putting on a wig.
Take a cue from Zendaya. In order to let her natural hair grow out healthily, she kept her hair free from hot styling tools and chemical hair coloring treatments. Instead, she purchased high-quality wigs that she can switch up easily according to the look she’s going for.
4. Hairline makeup
Defining your hairline or hiding a receding hairline is now easy with hairline concealer and cushion hair makeup.
This trend popped up as a solution for people who are often teased for having a “fivehead” instead of a “fourhead” (forehead).
1. Glass skin
Flawless dewy skin that looks like glass is incredibly popular, especially in Asia. It gives off a completely natural and healthy appearance. Glass skin is a tricky trend to try especially if you have big pores and problematic skin.
Makeup artists, however, have shared techniques and the best products to use for people who wish to jump in on this trend.
Highlighter drops are a must as well as teeny tiny concealer makeup brushes to achieve a pore less finish. Taking vitamin E in cream or pill form also helps in having healthy, radiant skin.
2. Faux freckles
Freckles are again called “beauty marks” after being considered blemishes for a long time.
People want them for that no-makeup glow. Because of this, faux freckles have become a makeup trend because not everybody is blessed with them.
To create faux freckles, makeup artists recommend using a brown pencil liner to draw on the spots. Follow that up with a sweep of coral blush and highlighter for a truly pretty flush of colour across the cheeks and nose.
3. Pigmented lip gloss
Liquid lipsticks that create a matte finish are slowly making their way out, and taking over the top spot for highly recommended lip products are pigmented lip glosses.
Beauty influencers rave about the new formulations in the market today, saying these products are nourishing and give amazing color pay off.
Lip glosses also make the lips look more plump and healthy, so there’s no need for those fillers anymore.
4. Keratin lash lift
For those who are not too keen on using eyelash extensions and prefer a more natural appearance for their lashes, a keratin lash lift is worth considering.
This beauty treatment is perfect for people who want curled eyelashes that make eyes look wide awake. It is not only better for the lashes, but the result of the treatment also lasts much longer.
