KARACHI: Unexpected beauty trends such as flannel hair and cleansing oils took 2018 by a storm. And there’s more of that to follow this year. Pinterest released a list of the top beauty trends they expect could take over in 2019. Scroll and pick which one you’re willing to try.
1. Statement lips
It’s time to bid farewell to your nude lipsticks and clear lip-glosses because this year is all about loud lips. A colourful pout is the most stylish yet sophisticated way to amp your bare-faced look. Heading out for happy hour or to work? Just slide on a bold lip colour and you’re good to go. Opt for cherry lips or the classic red.
2. Glossy makeup
Nothing highlights your features better than a little gloss, but nailing dewy lids is trickier than lips. To get the best wet look, prep your eye lids with a little lid primer and apply your favourite eye shadow. Seal the lid with a layer of gloss and work it.
3. 50 shades of grey
No, we’re not talking about the movies but if you’ve been thinking of growing out your grey hair lately, 2019 might just be the year for you. Just make sure your hair looks healthy.
4. Lilac locks
Lilac locks are all set to take over your Instagram feed. The soft, pastel colour will brighten your cold winter days and is a playful choice for the upcoming spring/summer season. For a bolder look, dye your hair to a rich lilac shade or colour a few strands through balayage.
5. Baby bangs
The new year can encourage many to adopt a different lifestyle. Some might even like to change the way their hair falls, which is why 2019 is all about baby bangs. Much-like Audrey Hepburn, a super short fringe looks good on just about anyone. But if the baby bangs are too dramatic for you, consult your hairdresser on ways to get the best bangs for your face shape.
6. Powder-dipped nails
Chipped nails are a nightmare, especially when they happen a week into your last manicure. Opt for powder-dipped nails this year. Not only do they solve the ruined nail polish problem, but are also super easy to remove. Bonus: They last longer than traditional gels. So what are you waiting for?
7. Almond-shaped nails
The next time your manicurist asks which shape you prefer, tell him/her that you want almond-shaped nails. But make sure your nails are strong enough to sport the look.
