Hot new beauty trends to embrace this year
It’s time to freshen up your look with the best new beauty trends, straight from the runway to reality.
Get that surfer-girl glow
Beauty takes its cues from long hot days in the form of sun-kissed skin, wind-swept hair and a healthy, well-rested glow.
Create healthy warm skin tones with self-tanning products and bronzer to give skin a radiant look, complemented by surfer-girl (naturally) dried hair.
A sprinkle of glitter and a dash of gloss
Glitter comes and goes, but this season it isn’t going anywhere fast.
Sparkly eyes and hair glitter were huge on the catwalk, along with glossy, glossy lips.
Choose one feature and make it your focus.

The look is a bold, foil-like effect but in neutral shades. Think metallic edginess with a pretty softness.

Nothing says summer like pretty pastels!
Well, this season think played-down neoprene shadow, finished in vivid coral mascara for day, or aqua, lime, and silver with blue mascara for night.
The look is updated iridescent power pastels.
Super-soft low ponytails, effortless up-dos and loose braids adorned with freshly picked flowers create the grown-up fairy tale look for 2019 – perfection for bridal and wedding styles.
