5 upcoming beauty trends to know about
Category : Beauty
With a new year (and the beginning of a new decade), you can be assured that there are plenty of new beauty and style trends for you to try. It is an exciting time of year when you feel inspired to switch up some of your routine looks. However, if you aren’t sure where to start or don’t know which trends are worth your time and energy, then this article is here to help guide you.
From J-Lo inspired hair to metallic pigments, extreme lashes to experimental nails, read on for five upcoming beauty trends to know about.
1. Glossy Blowout
When Jennifer Lopez made a surprise guest appearance on Versace’s Spring 2020 runway, she had people talking for lots of reasons, including her beautiful hairstyle. For the show, her hairstylist had given her a glossy, bouncy blowout, which gave her tresses an elegant, rounded shape while still looking lightweight. For this reason, you can guarantee that this is going to be one of the top hairstyles of the season.
If you want to achieve the same kind of look as J-Lo, then consider booking yourself a Brazilian blowout service. The liquid keratin formula that is used for this treatment attaches to your hair to produce a protective layer. This then helps to reduce frizz and protect your hair from any external damage.
A Brazilian treatment for curly hair is ideal because it is customizable to your needs, and it is also suitable for all hair types. What’s more, the treatment doesn’t affect your natural curl pattern and requires no downtime, so you can be out and about as soon as your appointment is over!
2. Modern Glamor
For the past few seasons, natural color palettes have dominated the beauty world. However, this year, the tides are going to shift, and you are going to see more glamorous make-up looks that still have a modern twist. Think lots of color, sparkle, and shine! In this way, you can expect to see more colors and textures such as metallic pigments that can be used on your eyes, cheeks, or lips.
This “modern glamor” look was seen on the Spring 2020 runways at Anna Sui, where the designer sent models down the runway with abstract eyeliner designs.
Fendi’s show had plenty of silver glitter in its make-up looks, while Off-White used loose octagon sequins. Try this look yourself by wearing a graphic flick of neon eyeliner, or opt for dramatic sparkly gold eye shadow which is set to be considered a “neutral” color in 2020. This is the year to make a statement!
3. Xtreme Lashes
On the runways at Marc Jacobs and Gucci, one thing stood out (almost) more than the clothes, and that was the intense lashes that the models were donning. For the kitschy look, stacks of false lashes were applied to the eyes.
Similarly, at Olivier Theyskens, models were treated to extra-long extensions with layers of onyx mascara to ensure a stand-ou beauty moment. Finally, Valentino decided to use heavy-metal gold false lashes for a glittery make-up look.
Luckily, you, too, can get the extreme lashes look that has been seen on the runways of some of the most influential designers in the world. Eyelash extensions are ideal for boosting your eyelashes and your overall beauty look. These extensions are specifically designed to add volume to your natural eyelashes and to enhance your eyes.
As long as you opt for high-quality ones, these will not damage your real lashes, and they will feel lightweight and natural while you are wearing them. Alternatively, consider LVL lashes, which lift your natural lashes from the root to make them appear longer.
4. Experimental Nails
Gone are the days when everyone wanted the same nail design. This year, expect to see people breaking out of the norm and experimenting with different-shaped nails and innovative textures and colors.
For example, scallop-edged nails have started to become popular with fashion It-girls around the world. But, in reality, when it comes to nail art, your only limit is your imagination. You can opt to go with one statement nail or decide to go all-out with a full set of nail designs.
For example, the top nail salon in Doha offers a range of different nail art options. Some of their most popular offerings are chrome nails, which come in a variety of colors (rose gold, pink chrome, metallic silver, unicorn chrome, blue chrome, purple chrome), and Swarovski crystal nails which involves applying hundreds of Swarovski crystals onto your nails. Other options include nail studs, marble nails, sunset polish, and metallic threads.
5. Hair Accessories
Next year, accessorizing isn’t only going to come in the form of bags, shoes, and jewelry, but it is also going to include hair accessories that run the gamut from scrunchies to clips to jeweled barrettes to pearl headbands.
All of these accessories add something special to any ensemble and are fantastic for adding a touch of magic to your everyday life. Consider wearing bejeweled barrettes towards the back of your head and pair them with a multi-part updo for a fashion-forward look.
Another great option is a pearl headband, which, again, brings an extra level of chic to any look. White is the most common color for pearls, but don’t be scared to don a pearl headband in another color such as royal blue, or dark purple.
If pearls aren’t your thing, other types of headbands have been seen on many runways – Simone Rocha, Ermanno Scervino, Molly Goddard, and Prada – so you are bound to find a style that suits your wardrobe. For example, Prada’s headbands were satin-covered and featured a bow at the center, while Molly Goddard’s came in black fabric. Simone Rocha’s looked more like tiaras, while Ermanno Scervino’s were adorned with white flowers.
