Pinterest Reveals Most Popular Beauty Secrets

Hair, nails, skincare and makeup trends to help you stand out from the crowd in 2019.

Social media and the beauty industry have become inextricably linked, with celebrity influencers and beauty brands representing some of the most followed and active profiles on social platforms. So when sites such as Pinterest reveal some of this year’s most popular beauty secrets, it’s safe to say that engaged followers of all things related to hair, skin and makeup, are eager to hear more about the latest trends. Here are some of the most exciting!

Baby Bangs

Also known as mini fringes, these are typically quite short and hang just above the brow area. Style icon Emma Watson is one of the biggest celebrities to bring this trend to the beauty world, and she’s caused quite a stir, with internet searches for ‘short fringes’ increasing by a whopping 51%. It’s a reasonably flexible look but baby bang enthusiasts tend to opt for a choppy or blunt version of the style.

Dip Powder Manicures

Chipped nail polish is one of the most offensive looks out there, and there’s just no need for it with methods such as powder dipped nails to keep you looking glam. Gel manicures have of course been a favourite for a while now, and the powder treatment offers an alternative which can last for up to a month. There are home kits available, but due to the levels of chemical involved, it’s always safest to visit a salon and have a licensed professional carry out both the manicure and removal.

Embracing The Grey

Although there are also some experimental hair shades out there at the moment, lilac being one of the most notable, there’s also a surge in women letting their natural grey locks shine through. But most impressively, celebrities like Dannii Minogue are setting an example of how to show off their grey with style, whilst still looking as trim and toned as a woman half her age at the L’Oréal Colour Trophy Awards. For those investing in wigs London salons are able to help you embrace the grey trend by hand-blending a selection of natural tones to suit the silver goddess in you.

Perfecting That Pout

Forget the natural look when it comes to your lips though – nude is out in favour of the pout! And this is actually a really handy way to make a statement with your makeup, without having to spend hours contouring or layering your eyeshadow. When it comes to your lips, the bolder the better is the take-home message. Experiment with bright reds, passionate purples or chocolate browns to draw all the attention to your lips. And if you’re looking for a look that lasts all day, then liquid matte lipsticks are the way to go.

Natural Tricks

With the war on plastics and the rise in veganism, it’s not a surprise that many beauty followers are interested in how mother nature can enhance their appearance. Using witch hazel to soothe various skin ailments is securely back in fashion, along with consumers using natural ingredients such as grapeseed oil and aloe vera to lengthen and lift their lashes. It’s likely that we’ll see a further rise yet in this particular trend as passionate consumers become even more committed to sustainable beauty practices.

It’s fascinating to keep updated with the latest beauty trends on social media – so choose your favourite brands and influencers and keep an eye on their latest tips and tricks to stand out from the crowd in 2019.
