It’s not a new trend, but I think the trend for Asian skincare/cosmetics will continue to grow, with Asian brands continuing to expand distribution into the USA, and USA companies coming out with their versions of the products ( BB/CC creams, cushion makeup, masks, sleeping creams, essences, etc). Sephora, Ulta, Target, Urban Outfitters, and online retailers now carry some products, but that’s only a tiny % of the many brands and products out there. I’m excited because the Asian brands often have cutting edge skincare products, and some very interesting makeup products and cute packaging

I agree Katherine. Her in Australia you can start to see their influence. They are cutting edge, try the snail masks. They are amazing.

I’m with you on that Alex ? Bring on the snails!!! I would have sworn my entire life that no snail anything would ever voluntarily touch my person. I was using it Cosmetics CC cream daily trying to finish off the tube and some masks I got in a memebox. After about a week I was putting my serum on and realized my skin was so …puffy. But in a good way. I know the snail thing sounds gross but it really isn’t. You will never even know it’s there. Memebox is a great site to try some things too 🙂

Hello Katherine 🙂 I’m pretty sure you already know this but just in case Target is carrying some Missha now :::pause for happy dance::: I’ve wanted to try Perfect Cover forever but there was another BB by Missha too that was also dry skin friendly. Decisions decisions lol

Oh thank you!! I heard it was coming, but not sure when. I was already planning a trip this weekend to Target, so will look out for it, hope the display hasn’t been ransacked. Always wanted to try Missha, and if it doesn’t work out, at least I can easily return. I agree with you on snail secretions –don’t knock it til you try it!! With billions in sales, snail mucous has conquered the beauty world, because it works. All hail the humble snail ! 🙂

I have a strong feeling that frostier, more shimmery lips are upon our doorstep…already beginning to creep in. Also, glossier finishes I think are right around the corner!
Not sure how I feel about it perhaps going full-throttle. But having amassed quite a few mattes, the easiest thing to do is just use shimmery or sparkly gloss over them.
I also suspect that extreme contouring/ highlighting is soon going to go bye-bye, and softer, more natural looking face makeup will make a welcome comeback.

I really hope the contouring/strobing stuff becomes more subtle & I seriously hope the drag queen/fade/instagram brows die. Maybe the unruly 80’s brows will come back in a modified fashion?

Right now, I’m seeing a few big trends: 1) Very light nude eyeshadow palettes keep popping up, and “barely there” makeup looks will get even more low-key. 2) More highly colored and non-traditional colored highlighters are starting to come out. I think more noticeable highlighter colors used in a more restrained way will give strobing a run for it’s money. 3) Glittery nails and lipglosses.

I’m most looking forward to colored highlighters. I love Looxi’s (thanks again, Momo!), and I’m excited about Jeffree Star’s upcoming ones. He used an icy blue one in one of his videos, and it was amazing looking.

Jefree’s upcoming highlighters are going to be f****** amazing I am SO excited. The quality of his stuff is too notch to me I adore his liquid velour lipsticks they are a game changer – also love using them as eyeliner!!

After all the bold very-drawn statement brows trend, I think next one will be understated to minimal brows.

I also think glossy lips are gonna come back at some point once everyone has the liquid-to-matte lip out of their system. And I think I’m going to prefer that, because there are very few liquid-to-mattes that are both within my price range and comfortable enough on my dry lips, so I’ve been over that trend since like ten minutes after it started, haha.

I just bought some L’Oreal Pro-Matte Glosses and they are SO comfortable, they are my favorite “liquid lipsticks” so far. They may not be matte enough for some, but I really really love them! I have them in “Nude Allure” and “Statement Nude”. Can’t recommend highly enough.

I think, as an extension of the strobing trend, all things shiny and glowy will become popular. You know, luminizing foundations, pearlized lipsticks, more highlighters, etc.

Matte lips arent going to disappear but I expect to see a lot more glossy lips for spring and maybe softer eyeliner, with a hint more colourful eye looks. Will be interesting to see which trends are really going to pick up 🙂

I think after all of the contouring trends that we may move into the 80s makeup with the low bright blush and shiny lips, but really, I have no idea.

I think it would be fun to see colorful mascara make a comeback, maybe just for tips and lower lashes? And definitely glossy lips; soo much more comfortable. On a side note, I can’t wait until the crazy robot brows trend dies down, I love a full brow but come on!!

I’ve thought about this recently – 80’s were bright color everywhere, 90s were grungy, smokey, and brown and saw the beginnings of face shaping a la Kevyn Aucoin, the aughts were the nude lip craze, and now it seems like the contour/face sculpting is still going strong . . .I’m not sure what there is left to cover. Maybe going back to the minimalist but glamorous makeup of the 50’s with a bold matte lip and defined, winged eye but not much else definition or color?

Maybe ’20s style blush application – placed high and back, toward the temples. I already see versions of it in editorials, and now the MAC Flamingo Park ads are really putting it out there. I think that placement suits the fun, unnatural, bright blushes that are popping up a lot lately.

That’s actually how I apply blush! I find it’s very flattering and gives a nice “flush.” Putting it on the apple of the cheeks makes me look older than I am.

I’ve been doing that a lot lately, instead of starting near the apple and blending back and up, I’m starting at the cheekbone by the ear and blending forward so the color is more concentrated at the outer face. I’m liking it!
