The Beauty & Skincare Trends That Are Already Rocking 2019
What trends are sending the beauty and skincare gurus into a frenzy this year? Beauty fads ebb and flow like the tides, but for 2019, the trends are can’t-miss. You don’t have to follow all of them, of course, but if you’re a brow-obsessed beauty girl or a believer in the power—and fragrance—of essential oils, then it’s your year to shine! From gorgeous glass skin that resembles flawless porcelain to the emergence of beauty and skincare products with CBD, we have the 411 on all of the trend trains that are worth the price. Are you ready?
Fabulously Functional Multi-Action Products
Who doesn’t love a multi-purpose product? It’s almost impossible to get through life without multitasking a little. The problem is that very few multi-action beauty products are actually able to pull off every job successfully (unfortunately some of us have experience with using a lip and cheek stain that left our cheeks looking like we smeared them with clown makeup).
Fortunately, Kismet’s Pumice Loofah Soap is on-point. With a single sphere of soap, you can cleanse and exfoliate your skin while ensuring it stays moisturized, even after you step out of the shower. Within each soap, which uses glycerin, there’s an aged loofah hiding in the middle. To use it, just scrub away, no sponge or washcloth needed! Talk about ingenuity!
The Glass Skin Trend
The glass skin trend began as a K-Beauty phenomenon, but it has since spread from South Korea to take over the entire world of skincare. Women and men alike crave the flawless, porcelain, poreless appearance of glass skin, which is why it continues to be the goal in 2019.
The thing to remember is that it takes dedication to achieve glass skin. You have to stick to a pretty intensive daily and nightly skincare routine that includes all of the essential steps. Your routine should begin with a cleanser to remove all of your makeup, followed by a toner that will plump up and smooth your complexion. Many people even incorporate a sheet mask once or twice a week to ensure their skin receives an ample amount of nutrients outside of what their usual routine provides. A facial mist is another must-have. The key, really, is to keep your skin as hydrated as possible. For that reason, you also need an excellent moisturizer. In the daytime, always make sure to apply a lotion with SPF to protect your skin from UV damage (it is the #1 cause of premature aging, after all!). At night, follow up your day-time routine with a thick night cream in the evening to help your skin’s natural repair process as you sleep.
Brows Still On Fleek
The beauty world’s obsession with flawless eyebrows isn’t going anywhere. Your brows highlight your eyes and help to frame your face, so it’s no surprise that the shape and sculpt of them are essential. But you’re not the only one if you’ve found getting the right shape to be close to rocket science at times. 2019 is all about the easy-brow revolution. With everything from brow shaping tools to easy-to-use, swipe-and-go brow mascara, this year is all about helping turn your brow routine into one streamlined process. Get in on this trend by finding products that simplify your beauty routine and get those brows on fleek without the hassle.
Out with Perfume
You’ve no doubt noticed the buzz surrounding essential oils. Lauded for their healing properties and all-natural nourishing benefits, everyone’s jumping on the bandwagon. What you may not realize is that essential oil blends, when safely diluted, are the perfect alternative to perfume. If you’re sensitive to artificial additives or find traditional perfume overpowering, then you might want to consider creating a blend of essential oils that can stand out as your signature scent.
Get Your Glow On
Highlighters and illuminators remain a must-have in the makeup world. The trick now is to discover an illuminator with fresh hues that are highly pigmented and promise to last all day and into the night. You should check out the Lovely Liquid Illuminator from Kismet Cosmetics. Not only does it tick all the right boxes, but the formula is entirely natural and free of parabens and phthalates—meaning you’re giving your skin the best ingredients possible. It’s cruelty-free, too, so you know you’re helping the world, just a little bit, when you get your glow on. Scope out the Lovely Collection to find your perfect shade!
Au Naturel with All-Natural Products
Speaking of natural things, all-natural beauty and skincare products are trending in a big way. 2019 is all about the realization that we need to be careful about what we apply to our skin. From organic skincare to cruelty-free vegan products, 2019 is all about bringing mother nature into your everyday beauty routine. Currently, matcha is the magic ingredient of the year. With a collection of powerhouse antioxidants and super nourishing catechins, matcha has become the #1 star in a series of serums, moisturizers, and other beauty products. Not only does matcha help calm inflammation, but, with regular use, it can also help eliminate wrinkles, crow’s feet, fine lines, and more!
CBD for Skincare
CBD products are everywhere, and with good reason. Cannabidiol comes from the cannabis plant, but it’s distinctly different from marijuana and contains no psychoactive properties. Adding it into beauty products is no different from the use of other botanical ingredients, and CBD has been proven to help with everything from inflammation and acne to fine lines and wrinkles. You can currently find hair products, facial moisturizers, lip balms, and lotions with CBD that all lead to a gorgeous glow, balanced and clear complexion, and ample hydration.
Without question, 2019 is shaping up to be a standout year for the beauty and skincare industry. In addition to beauty trends, such as glass skin and bold brows, we are currently seeing a wealth of innovations. The focus on natural treatments and methods can only be beneficial to your skin.
