In 2017, we’ve witnessed all kinds of crazy and over the top beauty trends rise to fame, like: feather eyebrows, metallic lips and pink eyes shadow. Now that we’ve made it to 2018, new trends have already been invented and we can’t wait to share them with you cause some of those sound like pure brilliance and others like total BS:
1. Spider Lashes
Spider lashes are basically lashes that are clumped up together, sorta like spider legs; hence the name. Instagram beauty gurus are combining spider lashes with fresh, natural looking face makeup. And although I’m not a huge fan of twiggy lashes but I respect the trend, only because it’s simple and not incredibly psychotic. Origin of the trend: Dior’s spring 2018 show.
2. Corset Braids
We all know that corsets were made for holding together those extra pounds of weight away from the crowd by squeezing in your tummy, mainly. But now that corset braids have made their debut, the word ‘corset’ is being thrown around and used so loosely. Personally, I am not the biggest fan of this trend because I think that it’s a waste of time and fabric but, nonetheless, I’ve seen some really pretty corset braids. So, if you’re into that kinda thing, you should deff go for it!
3. Golden Glow
Now, this one’s all on Rihanna. Ever since she created her Fenty highlighter in the shade of ‘Trophy Wife’, people have been going nuts for it. Everybody’s forgotten about subtle highlighting with champagne and white shades, and now the entire planet’s into Rihanna’s flashy gold highlighter. I mean, I would go for this only for the hell of it, once. But this is definitely, positively, unquestionably not an everyday makeup look, ya’ll. You know what I’m saying?
4. Slime Highlighter
Now, this is a trend that I can get on board with, maaan. This is woke AF! I love slime and I sure as hell love to highlight the hell out of my face and now Givenchy has graced us with its SLIME HIGHLIGHTER. First off, the highlighter’s 72% water, which is pretty cool. Second, I can’t handle how dope it looks, to be honest. Third, on their website, Givenchy states that the product is “Packed with pink-hued micro pearls” so, I’m pretty sold. Fourth, I have seen a good amount of online video reviews on this one and my $45 are ready #NoTheyAint
5. Freckle Tattoos
People are getting freckle tattoos on their faces and I think it’s INSANE. What the hell is going on, world? How is this the latest microblading trend? I honestly don’t get this and I 100% don’t believe its worth neither the money nor the fuss. The tattoos are semi permanent and they last for 3 years. Damn it, I’m angry!
6. LED Lashes
Shut up and take my money, dude! Imagine having those on at a rave, I would totally try these because they look so fun! According to Cool Wearables, “f.lashes (that’s what they’re called) consist of a motion sensor and individually controlled LEDs connected with almost invisible wires. You get different effects and color options to choose from. These lashes are weatherproof, don’t get warm, and last over 4 hours on battery.”. I like you, f.lashes <3
7. Glitter Masks
Aight so, first off, NO! Second, HELL to the NO. No, ma’am. I knew it was a matter of time until glitter spread to our toothpastes and face masks, I KNEW IT! But, this just looks unhealthy and disgusting. Glitter isn’t even approved by the FDA to be added to beauty products. And by the way, it costs $59 to get all those glittery stars stuck on your face for a few minutes before washing them off.
8. Glass Lips
Nope, it’s not 2006, clear lip gloss is IN AGAIN, baby! Everyone’s digging the dewy, water-shine makeup look now. It started with highlighting your face and now it has made it to the lips! Rihanna herself gave her blessings to the look when she had her makeup artists apply various layers of clear lipgloss to her models’ lips at her Spring 2018 show for Fenty x Puma
9. Inner Circle Highlight
Apparently, celebrities are now ditching traditional highlighter colors for highlighting the corners of the eyes and trading them in for more vibrant colors like pink, blue, orange and even violet, like Shay Mitchell in the photo above. I have to admit, it looks pretty cool, I might even have a go at it.
Pantone has announced that Ultra Violet is the official color of the year 2018 and we all have to bow down cause Pantone is everything. I am totally into this, I approve! I already bought my metallic ultraviolet lip shine and nail polish and I diiiig. “Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.” that’s what it says on Pantone’s website and I was very easily bought.
