Hottest Makeup Trends Of 2019… So Far!

20 Jan 2019
POSTED BY Alvin Thomas

From the runway to the red carpet, this season’s hottest makeup trend is all about going au naturel.

Deep neutrals and knockout nudes were found all over the lips and tips of celebs gracing the 76th annual Golden Globe’s red carpet walk of fame. And, from the catwalks of Tom Ford to Tory Burch, models walked the runways of the Spring 2019 Fashion Week fresh-faced and natural.

Dare we say it’s official? The nude colour palette is the new year’s hottest makeup and beauty trend and it’s all about loving the skin you’re in. From rich browns to caramel creams and shades of ivory, it’s a look that brings out the best in all skin tones. Here are some of our top easy ways to help you get the look! 

1) Lip service

Brown is the new red, in lip-colour this spring! Don’t be afraid to draw the line with a neutral shade that’s somewhere in-between your natural lip colour but with a warm earthy undertone. Gone are the flat browns and overly-lined pouts of the 90s.

We love: Bare Minerals Gen Nude Under Over Lip Liner. This creamy, versatile liner is the perfect before-lipstick primer, blending easily and refusing to budge. Order it from Sephora for RO6.15.

2) A light flush

This season, blush is all about achieving that natural flush. Opt for one that’s packed with true-colour mineral pigments, and apply lightly for a fresh-faced, healthy glow that’s in line with your natural skin tone.    

We love: Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush in Peaceful. This soft-nude peachy shade works well with both dark and fair complexions and helps control moisture while avoiding build-up. Price: RO15.

3) Up in smoke

Offset a more muted lip shade with a slightly smoky eye that keeps it in the neutral colour family yet adds depth and drama via shimmering metallics that accentuate your peepers.

We love: Maybelline New York The 24K Nudes Eyeshadow Palette. Beautiful and budget-friendly, we’re in love with its subtle golds and rich hues that complement all skin tones. Price: RO4.6.

4) Perfectly polished

Doll up your digits with delicate colours that are both muted and opaque with an extra-glossy finish for extra ‘oomph’. Think shades of grey, neutral taupe, and pearlescent apricot. 

We love: Essie Nail Lacquer in Without A Stitch. This dove-grey polish bridges the gap between barely-there and bold perfectly. Bonus point: It’ll also go with any outfit in your wardrobe. Price: RO3.4.
