As per usual, at the beginning of this new year I tried to gather the most interesting new trends in beauty. Some of them are old, some of them are new. But all of them are really interesting and I’m looking forward to see what this 2016 will bring.
Strobe make-up , more exactly strobe contouring. Strobe is a fancy term for highlighting. By contouring your face using the strobing technique the result is a dewy, shimmery, more youthful glow to the face.
Korean beauty trends. Korean beauty was noticed recently by the beauty industry, the BB/CC cream trend starting a few years ago and still going strong. There is no beauty brand high-end to low cost that hasn’t embraced the BB cream craze. Everyone loves it since it a three-in-one product (face cream, SPF and partly foundation), it’s time and money saving and very easy to use.
Another Korean trend that has just taken off is that of Cushion make-up. I have discussed this trend last year in a previous post on the blog a-new-trend-in-make-up-for-2015-cushion. Since then the cushion foundation has appeared both in medium cost brands as in high-end ones, the latest being a Dior cushion foundation (Dior Diorsnow Bloom Perfect Cushion) to be launched in Spring 2016, since the brand has teamed with the huge Korean AmorePacific brand to create a cushion make-up product range.
In make-up bold colours are IN, the red lipstick in all types of shades and looks is always fashionable. A new trend in the recent fashion shows is the electric blue eye look.
Multi-functional products. Both in skincare and make-up. This trend has already been started by BB creams (face cream, SPF and partly foundation), continued with Cushion foundations: L’Oreal Lumi Cushion Compact, Physicians Formula Cushion Compact, AmorePacific Color Control Cushion Compact Broad Spectrum SPF 50+, Dr. Jart+ BB Bounce Beauty Balm, It Cosmetics CC+ Veil Beauty Fluid Foundation SPF 50+ and make-up.
Make-up products for lips and cheeks (stains or tints from both high-end brands and lower cost ones: The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Velvet Stick Universal Shade, Stila Cherry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain, Benefit Posietint and the rest in the tint range, Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge for Lips & Cheeks, Yves Saint Laurent Beauty Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain and more).
The eye primer that contains anti-age and anti-pollution ingredients (Benefit Air Patrol BB cream eyelid primer with SPF 20 contains EnviroDefend complex which promises to to help guard your delicate eyelids against sun, smoke and pollutant as well as extends the wear of eyeshadow for long-lasting color that won’t crease, fade or smear).
I have to admit I am really interested in seeing how cushion make-up will be developed and embraced in the Western world, what other hybrid multi-functional products will apear next. The future in beauty is interesting and exciting, don’t you think ? Tell me : What is the trend that appeals to you most ? Until next time, Love M
