Hello 2019! Beauty Trends for the year ahead
New year, new you? The start of 2019 likely brought an abundance of resolutions. And in the world of beauty, things are no different! Trends are constantly changing, so to help keep you up-to-date, here’s a list of the biggest makeup trends for the year ahead available from your Boots Durham store at Prince Bishops Shopping Centre.
Glossy, Glowing Skin
This year is all about skin that looks ‘lit from within’. To achieve this, it’s important that you have an effective skincare regime set in place and a skin-benefiting foundation. For an at home, ‘mini facial’, to keep your skin looking clear and healthy, try Estee Lauders NEW Perfectionist Pro Range. Their Rapid Renewal Retinol Treatment fights wrinkles and dark spots, whilst the Instant Resurfacing Peel will give you instantly soft, radiant skin.

Follow this with a lightweight, hydrating foundation to ensure your skin looks glossy and glowing all day long. Clinique’s NEW Even Better Refresh Foundation is suitable for all skin types, contains hyaluronic acid to plump out fine lines, powerhouse peptides to improve smoothness, texture and evenness of the skin, and can be worn for 24 hours with little-to-no touch-ups necessary.
For a more budget-friendly option, try No7’s HydraLuminous Foundation. Full of skin-loving ingredients, for visibly fresh and radiant looking skin in an instant.
Pretty in Pink
Who said pink should just be for Valentine’s Day? Spring/Summer makeup trends this year are calling for pink makeup in all forms, from lips to eyes, to cheeks.
Masters of blusher, Benefit have a wide range of pink shades to choose from. Try Coralista for a warm coral-pink or Dandelion for a ballerina-pink that will brighten your complexion in seconds. To tie your look together, why not dust the blush over your eyelids too? Or try their infamous Benetint, suitable for use on both the cheeks and lips, for a natural-looking pop of colour that will last all day long.
When it comes to choosing that perfect pink lipstick shade, look no further than Nyx Cosmetics. For a subtle, barely-there look, pick up their Matte Lipstick in Natural. Want to stand out from the crowd? Try their Soft Matte Lip Cream in the shade Antwerp.
For years, big, bold brows have been all the rage. Unsurprisingly, 2019 is no different. “Brows on fleek” is here to stay, so put down those tweezers and let your natural brows come to the fore.
Need some extra help? Try Benefit’s Precisely, My Brow Pencil. Waterproof, with an ultra-fine tip and built-in spoolie, this pencil will give you perfect, feather-stroke brows for up to 12 hours. Set in place with their Gimme Brow gel, for natural-looking fullness and an added oomph!
On a budget? Try L’Oreal Paris’s Unbelieva’brows…longwearing, smudge-proof, waterproof and available in 6 different shades.
Naturally thick, voluminous lashes are sought after all-year round. Often, false lashes are the answer, but sometimes they can be a pain to apply and an expensive habit to maintain. That’s where a good lash primer and mascara come into play.
Estee Lauder’s Lash Primer Plus is a great way to maximise your lashes before applying mascara. Acting like a magnet, this product will get the most out of your mascara, helping it stick to every lash.
Follow primer with Clinique’s Lash Power Mascara, or for a more budget-friendly option, Maybelline’s best-selling Lash Sensational Mascara, to achieve defined, long-lasting, naturally curled lashes that'll let your eyes do the talking.
