Beauty often lies in the eye of the beholder, that’s what’s been known for centuries. Nowadays, there are trends and even though you don’t need to strictly follow them all, there are some of them that will make you look fresh, pretty and confident. Even if you don’t wear makeup regularly or don’t like changing your hairstyle, embracing some trends can do wonders for your self-esteem so for that reason, here is the list of beauty trends we’ll see in the upcoming year:
1. Bright and bold makeup
In the previous years, we had absolute domination of nude, beige and neutral makeup, but 2020 will be the year when things get a bit more colourful and upbeat. We’re expecting to see more blue, metallic and neon eye shadows sometimes even combined pink lipsticks, among others. Next year makeup will be all about that glow, so feel free to live your inner disco diva by experimenting with fun and contrasting makeup tones. Shimmery makeup will be all around us, but if you want to wear it at business events, it’s better to do it subtly, because that’s the best way to look elegant while still being trendy.
2. Floral and fun nail art
Nails will continue to be all the rage next season, except that this time, nail art will be inspired by bouquets of flowers from roses to sunflowers. And if prefer something more subdued, then don’t worry, because snakeskin elegant pattern will be one of the most prominent nail art designs. In case you’re someone who enjoys older nail art, then you’ll be happy to know that French manicure is expected to come back, with some changes apt for the modern age. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself contemplating a double French manicure with extra embellishments, because this type of nail art will be everywhere.
3. Injectable facial treatments
Not too long ago, cosmetic enhancements were considered a taboo and people rarely admitted to having them. Nowadays, more and more women are embracing it because they can help you look fresh and plump while also being less invasive and safer than ever. Getting an injectable facial treatment isn’t a big deal anymore, so opting for subtle lip fillers can improve your whole appearance without actually changing a lot. Having full lips can make you feel self-confident, especially since lips are the first thing others notice on you. But, before you decide to make an appointment, be sure to talk to the staff at the clinic and always keep in mind to ask all the questions no matter how illogical they might seem to you. A professional and experienced aestheticism will always be patient and forthcoming, so if you notice any suspicious behaviour or evasiveness, maybe it’s best to find go somewhere else.
4. French-inspired haircuts
Getting a (slightly) bigger chop can be terrifying for a lot of women, but if done right, haircuts can truly transform your face and add some necessary self-confidence into your life. If you need to get inspired, look no further than French fashionistas and other celebrities since they’ve mastered it better than no one else. Fringe will be quite popular in different styles from clean bobs to dishevelled curlier cuts. When it comes to colours, shades of red will trendy, so in case you ever decide to make a transition, remember that red dye washes away faster than other tones, so always use a moisturizing and colour-protective shampoo and conditioner.
5. Skincare will get
Taking care of your own skin is one of the best anti-aging treatments that you can do that only costs you about ten minutes a day. A lot of people tend to neglect their skin during their youth and then desperately panic once first wrinkles start to appear. Therefore, to avoid that, you should establish a skincare routine that works for your skin type. Next year, skincare will revolve about vitamin C and retinol capsules, because serums packed in single-dose capsules are enough to nourish and protect the skin during the night. Another ingredient to make an impact will be niacinamide, a B3 vitamin that can reduce the signs of aging and minimize the appearance of big pores, thus leaving skin smooth and soft.
These beauty trends will be all around in 2020, which doesn’t mean that you must embrace them all, because the sure way to look great is to create your own style that will reflect your personality. So feel free to channel your inner princess by wearing a bright blue eyeshadow, and don’t ever apologize for visiting a beauty clinic, because next year is all about being unapologetic and feeling powerful in your own skin.
