Don’t Miss These 2018 Beauty Trends!

Last year brought us a lot in terms of beauty innovation, and 2018 has gotten off to a great start as well. We’re always on the lookout for the best in beauty. From skincare and haircare to the latest in cosmetics, here are some Makeover Essentials favorites:

” Inclusiveness: Finding the perfect shade of foundation is essential for avoiding patchy, mismatched skin. There haven’t been a huge number of tones (10-15) from which to choose in the past, which was problematic for many. Thanks to brands such as Fenty Beauty, however, there are now more than 40 options. It’s refreshing that diversity is recognized more than ever!

” Monotone Eyeshadow: A significant amount of effort is involved in using different eyeshadow colors for undereyes, creases, and lids. Luckily, the monotone look is gaining ground. We’ve seen bright colors like ultraviolet and electric blue on the runways. For day-to-day activities, our Makeover Essentials beauty experts prefer rose gold, copper, and tans.

” Cleansing Oils: These products have historically received a bad rap in the beauty world, but we know better. Cleansing is the foundation of any skincare regimen, and cleansing oils are now recognized as the best catalysts for clear and glowing skin. They don’t dry out the skin as many products do, nor do they clog pores.

These are just a few of this year’s trends; we can’t wait to see what the coming seasons will bring! Go to our Makeover Essentials Newswire to find out what else is big in 2018.

How Meghan Markle Is Challenging Royal Beauty Rules

By now, Meghan Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry is old news. All the details that surround it, however, are still hot topics. People continue to chatter about the impending wedding festivities. Even throughout the Makeover Essentials office, the image of her elegance in a stunning white gown, bejeweled accessories, and flawless hair keeps discussion lively and curious.

As with any big event like this, people all over the world are keeping close watch on the Prince’s and Markle’s public appearances. Since the engagement was announced, for instance, they visited a youth-focused radio station based in London. We noticed right away that aside from Markle’s genuine smile and grace, something was different.

We’re used to seeing the actress sporting her Hollywood look – wavy brunette locks worn loose. During her outing, she opted instead for a bun set low on her neck. A few wisps of hair framed her face, which was free of makeup. It’s clear that Markle is stunning with or without the fuss of a beauty routine, and her no-fuss appearance only adds to her appeal.

Markle’s style adds something natural and refreshing to the royal entourage. After all, even Kate Middleton is rarely seen without her signature rosy cheeks and lips. Our Makeover Essentials beauty experts are eagerly awaiting more of Markle’s unconventional yet sophisticated statements.

The countdown to the happy couple’s big day has begun. Like Makeover Essentials on Facebook to stay informed.

What Are 2018 Pre-Fall Fashion Trends? Find Out Here

When it comes to the world of fashion, we at Makeover Essentials believe there are more than four seasons. In fact, the pre-fall season seems to extend throughout the year. For many fashion businesses, sales of autumn-ready products start booming in the summer. They don’t taper off until mid-winter. Then new trends begin to emerge, covering outerwear, casual daywear, formal evening attire, and beyond.

With all this in mind, our Makeover Essentials beauty experts have already identified the following 2018 trends:

” Sequins: Sequins continue to be a staple in eveningwear. We’ve seen them shining brightly on off-shoulder gowns, skirts with asymmetrical hems, long-sleeved tops, and more.

” Head-to-Toe Patterns: The days of patterned garments paired with solids are long gone – at least for now. Attention-grabbing outfits with uniform prints abound.

” Fur: People are donning real as well as faux fur this year. They’re out and about in soft shades and bold, multicolored looks alike.

” Graphic Stripes: These consist of vibrant, colorful stripe layouts on casual attire. Horizontal and vertical stripes, as well as those of varying sizes, are all in.

” Animal Prints: From snakeskin to leopard, animal prints are available on all sorts of attire. Many designers have released them on outerwear that makes for easy and attractive layering.

Year in Review: Unique – and Sometimes Crazy! – Trends

Every year carries exciting trends in just about every industry. The world of fashion and beauty is no different. For instance, the eyebrow received all sorts of attention in 2017. There were also unusual application methods, hairstyles, and more. Here are a few that did not escape notice at Makeover Essentials.

Let’s begin with eyebrows. We’ve seen them feathered and even photoshopped into squiggles. In fact, beauty guru Huda Katten tried the look herself after being impressed by the photoshop look. Kendall Jenner and Bella Thorne were just as daring, with Jenner bleaching her brows and Thorne adding pink glitter to hers.

Moving on to makeup application methods, did you know that people have been using everything from hard-boiled eggs to condom-covered blenders to don their cosmetics? Our Makeover Essentials beauty experts are impressed by their creativity!

Short hair is one thing, and buzzed or shaved looks are entirely different. Katy Perry, Kristen Stewart, and Cara Delevingne sported little to no hair at all, whether for film obligations or simple personal preference. The style accented their facial bone structures beautifully.

A final look worth noting was presented by none other than Kim Kardashian. She and her sisters are known for their plump lips, and she enhanced hers using a dragon’s blood mask. It’s made from a tree sap, aptly named because it drips (like blood) when it seeps out of the bark.

Who and What Made the Biggest Waves in 2017?

For the most part, we keep our eyes on the future. By staying ahead of the biggest trends, we keep Makeover Essentials on the cutting edge of the beauty industry. Now that the year is drawing to a close, however, it’s fitting to reflect on the people and styles that made the biggest impact in 2017. These were a few of the heaviest hitters:

• Breakthrough Designers: Many new designers found their footing throughout the past year. Their brands include Magda Butrym, Gabriela Hearst, Attico, Reiina Pyo, A.W.A.K.E., Ganni, and Jacquemus.

• Brands With Staying Power: Of course, there are some fashion mainstays. Makeover Essentials favorites include Gucci, Balenciaga, and Off-White. These brands have the type of longevity that is sure to extend into 2018 and beyond.

• Big-Ticket Items: We’ve noted some impressive sell-out rates as well. Gucci’s logo tee continues to make a splash, for instance. The wrap dress made big waves, as did bags like Chloe’s Nile. Shoes in velvet and satin were notably popular too.

• Greatest Transformations: There is more diversity than ever in the world of fashion, and it’s quite refreshing! There are great looks coming from Budapest, Japan, Sweden, and more. What’s more, it seems as if the year’s largest trend is the anti-trend. Style is beautifully customized by the individual.

Makeover Essentials has done the work to save you the stress of finding the best products to protect your skin during all the upcoming family gatherings and cocktail parties.

Winter’s dry air is known for the havoc it can wreak on skin, but Tatcha Gold Camelia Beauty Oil will save the day.
