We have only just entered the New Year but the internet is already buzzing with 2019’s newest makeup and beauty trends. And Instagram we believe is the one place to get all the scoop on anything that is trending.
Off late, makeup has been all about embracing the natural, which is why trends like glowing makeup, glass skin and no makeup-makeup have been doing the rounds. Well, guess what. The latest makeup trends that we scouted for on Instagram are also, all about the glow!
These trends are surprisingly wearable and look absolutely stunning. Let’s find out what they are...
Flashbulb skin is nothing but having your skin look lit up from within with the use of right products. This is an updated version of another makeup trend of strobing your face. If done correctly, this highlighting technique gives your skin a super warm and flattering glow. Using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, and applying small amounts of the product to the precise area is the key to mastering this look.
Sounds yummy, doesn’t it? Juicy skin is nothing but a glamorous yet wearable highlighted face. Inspired by the K-Beauty trend, juicy skin simply means skin that looks pore less, reflective and translucent, just like a sheet of glass. The easiest way to achieve this skin that looks full of health, simply mix your favourite foundation with some face oil for a base that looks absolutely dewy and natural. Finish it with blush and oodles of highlighter on the forehead, cheekbones and tip of the nose for that high-shine, ‘juicy’ finish.
Initially coined by the Instagram makeup guru, Nam Vo, 'dumpling skin' is the term used for skin that looks ultra-hydrated, plump and juicy. It is a high shine, doughy look that starts with thoroughly exfoliating and moisturising your face. The ‘dewy dumpling’ look helps bring light and shine to a face that is both contoured and highlighted to balance everything out. As Nam Vo puts it, “chisel in the forehead, cheeks, nose and jawline with a contour product before going in with highlighter. Make sure to hit the highs of your cheekbones, which is a good place to accentuate, as almost no one breaks out there.”
