From rhinestones and glitter for the glam, to smooth skin and artful ink for the feminine feel – 2018 is going to be a very good year for beauty. We’ve got a variety of trends showing up on all the runways, and our favourite one must be this: freedom of expression. That’s right ladies, girl power is in, and it’s time to take back our beauty and enjoy it in our own way. The trends are all about making that natural allure shine through, to let our creativity show in clothes and makeup, and to care for our face and body to make it radiantly gorgeous! Are you ready to experiment and have fun? Let us show you some of the coolest things you can try this season.
It’s raining glitter
Have you caught the glitter bug yet? It’s spread almost everywhere, especially in New York and London. It’s been going around the runways, and models have been showing up with their hair, nails, eyelids, and lips so full of glitter that the glam was undeniable. The cool thing here is that you can keep it all totally subtle and simply add a dab of sparkle as an inner-corner highlight for your eye makeup, or you can be a full-on glitter queen and add glitter highlights to your hair to give it some incredibly beautiful visual complexity.
Cat liner? It’s for beginners! This year we’re taking it up a notch and getting creative. Go for thick, smudged lines for a grunge feel, or create something sleek and complex by using a good graphic liner. We recommend it for a night out if you really want to wow the crowd.
With the huge comeback that started in Australia, Japanese ink seems to be overtaking the rest of the world as well. Both males and females are opting for colourful Japanese tattoos in Sydney, and cherry blossoms, dragons, koi fish, and many other motifs from legends and myths grace the bodies of soulful, free-spirited young people with a deep love of art. Your ink represents everything that’s unique about your personality and experiences, so choosing a design from this mythology is a bold, beautiful choice that can be the perfect form of self-expression.
Nail art is back again
If you were a fan of crafty nail art, you’re going to enjoy this trend. Still going strong since last year, Korean nail art (much like their skincare) is on the rise and we’re enjoying some really great designs that range from cute animal motifs to ultra high fashion. Whether you want your nails to look like they were dipped in gold or rock some rhinestones, it’s time to have fun with art again!
