Beauty How-To: Rock The Trends Of 2018
With 2018 looking like another banner year for sheer makeup, you should invest in lippies that don't interfere with your lips' natural hues. Better yet, go for a lip tint that gives the added benefit of a balm. Sisley’s Phyto-Lip Twist comes in a variety of soft colours with shiny finish.
If you’re not into tinted balms, you can try Clarins Instant Lip Comfort Oil in Candy for the same lip tint effect. You can also try Jane Iredale Play On Lip Pencil in Saucy if you want something that's shiny and eye-popping at the same time. Meanwhile for an understated shade, Tom Ford Lip Color in Naked Ambition and Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in Infatuation are both perfect. However, if you just can't quit your matte obessession, there's the trendy Nars Powermatte Lip Pigment in Wild Night which channels Pantone's colour of the year.
The Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour line is also worth exploring if you want to have soft, satin finish that is velvety to the touch. It’s available in a range of striking shades, from nude to deep berry.
To achieve the glossy makeup look, it’s important to set the base for a smooth canvas. For that, try Max Factor FaceFinity Compact Foundation in Porcelain, Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder in Fair, and Clarins Everlasting Compact Foundation in Nude.
The key to glowing makeup is keeping the skin hydrated and refreshed throughout the day. The Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater is meant to give you that midday boost for a rejuvenated look and feeling.
As seen in Chanel, Jason Wu, Christopher Kane, and Mary Katrantzou, wet and slicked back were the hairstyles of choice on the spring/summer 2018 runway. To achieve the same look, you can get the help of Phyto’s leave-on products. Use the Phytolisse Serum throughout the day to maintain glossy shine on unruly hair. Meanwhile, the Huile Soyeuse delivers hydration to fine, dry hair and makes it silky smooth to the touch. Finally, the Huile Suprême is perfect for thick, dry hair because it brings shine, smoothness, and nutrition.
Nail art as a trend is also poised to make a comeback in 2018. To channel the cheery vibe of the upcoming spring/summer season, explore Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure 3.0: Marrakech Collection.
How you smell is just as important as how you look so don’t forget to include scents in your new year’s haul. The trend is leaning towards niche fragrances, so you might find Laboratoires Cadentia’s L’eau des Collines Eau de Cologne and Nature Eau de Cologne interesting.
