Beauty Trends to Try this 2018

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.

 

  1. 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?

 

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

 

  1. 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?

Humidity and your Hair

For those of us with curly hair, we know exactly what kind of effect high humidity can have on it. Without warning our hair can frizz up leaving us looking like one of those poodles in a dog show. This isn’t the best situation when we are headed out for a date or to a special function.

The truth is, high humidity can have a more serious effect on your body than just your hair. When the humidity is high you could suffer from heat stroke to an overgrowth of mold in your home. This is why, some folks who live in areas of the world that have higher than average humidity levels invest in a dehumidifier. Not only can it save you some annoying dust mite infestations, a device like this can do wonders for you hair too!

 

Why Does It Frizz

Before we get to the how, why don’t we cover the why. Scientifically, when hair comes in contact with the moisture, hydrogen bonds in your hair are formed between the molecules of water and the proteins in your hair. This will cause your hair to frizz.

Of course, why it happens isn’t as important to us and to the how to get rid of it or how to prevent it in the first place. We are all about prevention on Fashion and Style Police so we would like to start there.

 

No Hands Ma!

One of the worst things you can do when you are afraid of your hair getting frizzy is to keep touching it. The more interaction your hands have with your wet hair the more likely it will turn into a big mess. No matter how tempted you might be do your best to keep your hands off of you hair.

 

Dehumidify

As we mentioned earlier, a dehumidifier could do a great deal for the humidity in your home. Unfortunately, this help won’t reach outside the walls of your home, yet, once the frizz is tamed in your home, it will be much easier to handle when you head out for the night.

 

Beauty Products

If you have curly hair and live in an environment that boasts high humidity then you are very familiar with the fact that there are tons of products on the market that climate to combat the frizz the moment you get out of the shower. They can come in a wide array of prices and forms.

There are serums, foams, and gels that can help you keep the frizz at bay. Other ways you can use beauty products to prevent a frizzy head is to use a shampoo that has an anti frizz formula. This can battle the problem while you are in the shower.

Since we mentioned the shampoo, it is important to mention that keeping your hair well conditioned will do a great deal to help fight the frizz before it even sets in. Find a conditioner that is highly rated when it comes to preventing frizz and go from there.

Natural Remedies

While we love the beauty store, there is no denying that sometimes, the best remedy is the natural kind. Not only do natural aids tend to be cheaper they don’t add any more chemicals into our world. Let’s take a look at some natural items that claim to settle the frizz.

 

Apple Cider Vinegar

This product can be found at any grocery store for a fraction of what a frizz serum would cost. If you rinse your hair with apple cider vinegar you will find that your hair will not only be free of frizz, it will have a healthy shine as well.

 

Avocado and Olive Oil

If you take one ripe avocado with a tablespoon of olive oil, mash them together, you can create a natural mask for your hair that will rival anything on the shelves of the beauty shop. Just apply it to your hair after washing and let sit for up to an hour. Rinse and then condition so your hair doesn’t smell like guacamole. You’ll find the hydrating qualities of this natural mask to do a world of wonder for your frizz problem.

 

Coconut Oil

Known for its amazing beautifying qualities, coconut oil can also hydrate your hair and prevent frizz. In fact, if you find that your hair is frizzy,  you can use a dab of coconut oil as a finishing product to create a smooth and shiny look.

 

Olive Oil and An Egg

Combine a raw egg with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and smother your hair in it before you wash it. Let it sit for an hour and then wash and rinse like usual. These two natural items are chock full of healthy fats and protein, which are needed to fight frizz.

 

 

Conclusion
