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.

All-or-nothing nails

Generally, nude nail polish is the standard on and off the catwalk, which is perfect for the every day.

But trending in 2019 is the embellished gem-adorned manicure – a definite case of more is more.

The graphic cat-eye

It’s time to perfect the feline flick, because this season’s cat-eye has been hyped with not only ink black liner but intense jewel shades, too.

Hair hues with impact

Bold hair is back and bigger than ever – consider choosing shades to match your outfit and eye make-up for a truly tonal look.

And the colour that is already proving a standout for 2019 – think pink.

Hail the headband

Hair accessories have been a growing trend, from clips to clasps, bows to barrettes, and even the scrunchie – but this summer is undoubtedly the season of the headband.

From elasticated ballet dancer styles to the studded satin versions and heavily-embellished bands, there’s a headband look for every occasion.

French red lips

This classic look is updated with new pillar-box reds, rich tomato hues and burgundy tones.

Don’t go overboard with your eye make-up; keep it simple to keep the look on-trend.

Heavy metal

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

Brass, copper, and pinks are the biggest colours on the trending parade.

Pastel power

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.

Romantic hair

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.
