Top Beauty Trends for 2018

Whilst 2017 had some truly unique, transformative beauty trends that had everyone talking, 2018 is already showing some serious differences.

It’s no secret that beauty trends can change super quickly. But, with this exclusive guide of 2018’s top upcoming trends certain to make a bold appearance, you’re guaranteed to be on-trend at all times with your beauty regime.

High-Shine Lips

2017 was undoubtedly the year of the matte lip. With some of today’s most well-known celebs consistently wearing matte lipsticks throughout the entire year, it’s no wonder this took off and became perhaps the most popular beauty trend throughout the whole of 2017.

However, 2018 is already showing a serious lip switch-up. High-shine, super glossy lips are already taking over, with a huge amount of makeup brands set to release gloss-influenced lip products throughout 2018.

After all, glossy, shiny lips instantly add a fuller, more plump look to the lips without having to resort to the needle. Better still, they’re far less drying than matte lipsticks too!

But, if you’re looking for a permanently plump look that’s simply unachievable by using lip gloss alone, we offer bespoke dermal lip filler treatments here at A New You, specifically designed to create your perfect lip shape.

‘Clean’ Beauty

The whole concept of clean eating skyrocketed in popularity in 2017. With a huge number of social media influencers advocating the benefits of a clean, natural diet, ‘eating clean’ became a massive trend in its own right as opposed to just a healthy lifestyle choice.

And this ‘clean’ idea is set to soon take the makeup and skincare world by storm too.

Solely focusing on creating products free from toxic, harmful ingredients, many brands are now being encouraged to ditch the synthetic fragrances and parabens for a more natural approach – certain to provide some serious skincare benefits too!

Face Masks

The ever-growing face mask market is set to boom in 2018, with the face mask industry becoming increasingly sophisticated and cutting-edge.

2018’s face masks are predicted to be even more targeted to resolving specific problem areas on the face as opposed to offering multiple functions in one. So, whether you want to reduce redness, eliminate stubborn acne or finally get rid of those ever-deepening crow’s feet with something as simple as a face mask, 2018 could be your year.

But for a more permanent skin-rejuvenating solution without having to undergo trial-and-error with a variety of different masks, check out our extensive range of professional facial treatments.

Less is More

Whilst 2017 was undoubtedly the year of crazy highlight and super-sculpted contouring, bare skin is definitely in for 2018.

Keeping things light, fresh and breathable on the makeup front is almost certain to become one of 2018’s biggest beauty trends of all – especially as we get closer to the spring/summer season.

Switch-up your heavy foundation for a tinted moisturizer and put down the harsh brow pencil and opt for a more natural, fly-away brow instead. A more natural, less high-maintenance look is likely to surge in 2018 (and take far less time in the mornings!).

And there you have it – some of the most highly-anticipated beauty trends certain to take 2018 by storm.

But remember, there are virtually no rules when it comes to makeup, skincare or beauty routines in general. If none of the above take your fancy, just wear whatever you’re comfortable with! Or, if you’re looking for a more permanent skincare solution without needing to use makeup, get in touch to see how we can help here at A New You.
