From Kylie’s famous lip injections to fluttering eyelash extensions, 2018 is the year of some very innovative and crazy beauty trends. With various celebrities entering the beauty circle and making a huge name for themselves, the dynamics have greatly changed. Today, I decided to list down three biggest beauty trends in 2018 that caught my attention.
Skincare has become a vital part of the beauty industry as well, especially due to its constant association with makeup and makeup brands. Therefore, this slightly scary trend has actually become quite the rage now. Micro needling is considered a popular treatment for acne scars, stretch marks, and fine lines. The procedure involves numerous microneedles pricking the skin to naturally produce collagen. The outcome is softer fine lines and reduced acne scars & stretch marks. The process may sound daunting but it really is not, given that you go to a good doctor who specializes in such procedures and is an expert on the matter. If you or someone you know, is looking to explore the world of micro needling, I would recommend exploring an NYC plastic surgery doctor.
I cannot emphasize it enough; this shiny product has taken glowing skin to a completely new level. Its impact is massive in the makeup industry. Highlighters are now the epitome of glowing skin and it has various brands viciously competing with each other to create the most radiant highlighter. That is not all, highlighters are now available in a vast range of shades from hues of pink and purple to pearl white and gold. You can even find a seven-colored rainbow spectrum highlighter. Furthermore, highlighters come in different forms like powder highlighters, liquid highlighters, and highlighter sticks etc. Some brands like Farsali broke the market with its trendsetting and innovative jelly highlighters. It caused a stir in the beauty community and left beauty bloggers stunned. Whether it is a shimmering shine for the fall season or a sultry bronze for summers, I guarantee you that your make up routine will never feel complete without this blinding addition. So, glow away, girls.
Extensions are no longer the hot item in the beauty industry specifically when it comes to eyelashes. Let’s be honest, nobody likes to pull out tacky extensions from their eyelashes and it is absolutely painful to watch. Racing past the trend of falsies, eyelash lifting has taken over our hearts and minds. Eyelash lifting is like a perm but for your lashes. The process is aimed at lifting your lashes in their natural shape, using a chemical solution and giving them a subtle, realistic curl. The solution is completely safe for use near the eyes. The results are very impressive and the difference is quite apparent. Your lashes look longer and fuller without having to apply any mascara, false lashes or extensions. Moreover, you do not need a curler at all. Another upside, your eyelashes are not pulled along the mascara residue or the lash glue during removal, which does more harm than good and honestly, does not make the risk worthwhile. Overall, even though the whole procedure is quite expensive, the effect lasts six to eight weeks, which makes me consider lash lifting as a better deal than the prior alternatives mainly because there is no risk of damage to the natural lashes.
