In 2017 we saw a lot of ground breaking changes in beauty trends. Women are becoming more influenced by what they see on social media and celebrities on magazine covers. This is a sure sign that in 2018 there will be a lot changes in beauty trends as more people are looking up to social media for inspiration.
Just like fashion trends, beauty trends are fast evolving and the sooner you are in touch with the latest trends the more up-to-date you will be. I know we’ll see a lot of surprises and exceptional creativity in 2018. However here are 5 beauty trends you should try in 2018.
- More underliners
Remember when the smoky eye was so popular? Imagine the complete opposite happening in 2018. Instead of the alluring smoky eye, women are going for more underliners. The underliners involve putting colour right below the waterline of your eyes.
It adds a pop of colour. In addition to that, it’s bold and outgoing. Seems pretty much like the theme of the new year, don’t you think?
- Transition from Korean skincare products and regimen to Japanese skincare products and regimen
Korean beauty products and skincare routines were extremely popular in 2017. A lot of women rushed to the Korean beauty line when they saw its wonders on those who tried them. This is because the South Korean beauty industry invested a lot in research and was able to produce effective skincare products that show really positive results.
However, it seems that they are going to face stiff competition from Japan which is coming up with their own skincare and beauty lines. This is good news for me as there is someone in my household visiting Japan very soon.
- The long eyelashes
The eyes are the mirror to the soul. If that is the case then why not make them more inviting? That’s exactly what is happening in 2018. There’s a way long eyelashes make the eyes pop, especially when done really well.
In 2017 I noticed an increase in the number of women getting eyelash extensions. There was also an increase in the number of women looking for serums that will help promote the growth of their eyelashes. So brace yourself! We’re definitely going to see a lot of women batting fluttery eyelashes this year.
- Cat-eye goes geometric
I absolutely love the cat-eye flick and it has been the darling of almost every woman in 2017. It was all over social media and the tutorials on how to make the perfect cat-eye flick were on almost every fashion blog and vlog on the internet.
And now in 2018, we will see the famous flick metamorphose into something more geometric. From the blunt tip to a more square-like brush, we’ll see a lot of creativity surface on our eyelids this year.
- Glossy lips
The luscious lips are always alluring especially when taken care of properly. This year glossy lips are making a huge comeback. Matte was pretty popular one time but now women are going for something with a little more shine.
Aside from choosing the glossy lips, adding a little glitter to their lips is also fast becoming a trend. That makes the lips more alluring, luscious and irresistible. It’s almost like crystal. This is a trend I’m really loving right now.
Which of these beauty trends do you like the most?
