The results are in, and we are so over the moon to discover that 2019 is the year where we throw all the complicated makeup trends out the window (go on, get outta here!) and that this year is all about getting back to the basics. Makeup and beauty in 2019 is all about keeping it simple, and celebrating the fact that less is more.

Step out the front door confidently knowing that now you don’t need to lug around huge makeup cases filled with all sorts of powders and creams, now you can be your fabulous self with little to no effort.
We are so excited for these new trends, and you will be too!

 

Natural Base

Pat McGrath once referred to this look as “fresh from the dermatologists”, and fresh this look is. Ditch the under eye concealers, this beauty trend is all about celebrating that natural glow. Using only a little bit of highlighter, moisturiser, and your natural tones, say hello to the no-makeup look of 2019. No more cake makeup, it’s time for nothing but fabulous.

Make this look even more effortless by banishing any under eye puffiness, and in true 2019 style these under eye hacks are so simple you’ll be doing them in your sleep.

Blue Eyeliner

Good news, blue eyeliner is making a huge return in 2019. Covering all different colours and names; cobalt eyeliner, denim eyeliner, baby blue eyeliner, this trend is suddenly making waves across social media. This look is flattering on all types of complexions and helps to brighten up your face and make your eyes pop. Best of all, the look can be achieved with just the eyeliner alone. Try pairing it with some electric blue or aqua accessories to really tie it all in together.

Lipgloss Eyeshadow

Sticky, gooey, and oh so shiny is the way to go with eyeliner. Sometimes referred to as the jelly look, dewey eyeshadow, and hyper gloss, this simple yet effective trend will be your new obsession. Next time you find yourself out in public armed with only your lipgloss or lipstick and an invitation to a groovy party, take a page out of the Vogue runway book. Gently dab some glossy lip gloss on your eyelashes for just the look you need for a simple, yet fabulous style.

Natural Lash Lifts

No more artificial lashes for us this year! Natural, full, lush lashes are now the way to go. Lash lifts are the new false lashes, they not only leave you feeling like a Disney princess but they also remove the need for mascara and lash curlers. Lots of lash treatments now use natural ingredients such as aloe vera and keratin which leave your lashes undamaged and fabulous.

If you need inspiration for natural lashes, check out this Fab-U_Lash treatment we found in Cyberport.

Light Contouring

Heavy contouring is so 2018. No more painting of cheekbones or sharpening of noses, now it’s soft and subtle shades, and gentle highlighting that will make you sparkle. Contouring heavily become a hit on social media last year, and many bloggers were quick to show off how heavily they could apply their shades to achieve that chiseled look. Good news, now you don’t have to shade and blend. Now, you can just apply your favourite base and powder, and let your natural beauty shine through. Don’t forget a hint of blush to add that extra somethinsomethin!

Baby Bangs

Reminiscent of when we were young and we gave Barbie a haircut, the baby bangs has appeared on runways of the biggest fashion houses. Picture the old-school blunt bangs look, but shorter! This simple baby-doll look is super cute, and can work with any look you’re hoping to achieve: cutesy or rocker chick.
Have your hairdresser give your bangs the chop, and get ready to face the world head on! Try one of Hong Kong’s hottest salons for the best chop you can get [LINK: https://bloomme.com.hk/hong-kongs-hottest-hair-salons/]
