2018 is already in full swing and and when it comes to beauty, 2018 is focusing on one’s own naturalness. Beauty 2018 is all about self-care, being yourself and enhancing your own natural attributes. Check out the best of the beauty trends in hair, makeup and skincare.
Beauty 2018 – Hair
We love our hair and for beauty 2018, hair is going bigger and badder. We’ve got three of the biggest trends that for hair and it’s all about natural hair lovelies!
Floral & Ornate Hair Accessories
Hair accessories have always been a favorite for women of color and as many go natural, scarves, hats and hair clips are already cluttering our bathrooms. For 2018, hair accessories are going into overdrive and the more ornate, the better. We’ve been rocking flowers in our natural tresses for years now, but for the masses, this is becoming a much bigger trend this spring and summer.
Winter Beauty Secrets For Dry Skin From Head To Toe!
Anywho, it’s easier to find headbands, hair clips and even real flowers to rock in our hair now that it’s gotten bigger.
Honestly, hair accessories are going to be big this year and the more bling, the better! From stretching banana clips for rocking sexy frohawks, to satin-lined baseball caps, hair accessories are taking center stage for hair this year so make sure to stock up, rock them hard and play them up for sexy and fun hair.
Coils, Kinks & Curls Meganess
Not that we EVER need the beauty and fashion world to tell us this or define what is beautiful for hair, but there seems to be a consensus on rocking the natural tresses and the bigger the better. Bone straight hair is slipping to the waist side as more women opt for rocking softer and sexier curls this year.
Just as Rihanna’s hair was styled in fluffy curls at the Grammy’s, expect to see more curls on stars in months to come as our natural hair is making real waves this year. Her longtime hair stylist, Yusef Williams shares how to create this style:
“To achieve the look at home, you might want to use some extensions for drama. I used the ghd gold styler to create soft curls.” If your hair is naturally thick or curly, Yusef suggests using a paddle brush to blow-dry your strands. “Your hair doesn’t have to be superstraight. In fact, we kept a lot of texture in Rihanna’s hair because we didn’t want it to be too smooth.” PopSugar
Natural Hair Focus: Cut & Color
When it comes to natural hair, for 2018, its all about the cut and color. Craving long hair is not the focus this year, but rather having a sexy cut and color to match that’s all about sexiness and style.
According to Teneya Gholston, Marketing Director for Creme of Nature:
“The natural curlfriend is looking for more dimension and details in her color to show off her color. We’ll see more 3D Color Smash Color rather than traditional highlights and all over color as the next big thing. Naturally curly women will begin to see that their curls need to be shaped and opt for cute styles over length. We’ll see women rocking more wedge cuts and bobs.”
Make sure to allow your stylist to create your style with a professional cut. Looking for permanent color? Hit the stylist up for that as well to minimize damage but opt for temporary color to keep hair damage-free and to go wild with bold and vibrant hues.
Beauty 2018 – Makeup
We love makeup and we love natural ingredients. What do you get when you incorporate the two? You get a year all about simplicity and nature.
Less Foundation, More Drama
Beauty 2018 is all about no more caked on foundation clogging up our pores and concealing all our beautiful flawlessness. It’s all about upping the drama factor with thicker lashes, metallics and our natural skin shining through. Yes, we want the glitter and the false lashes, but we don’t want to strip our look of our uniqueness.
Let your freckles shine through while embracing all the colors on your eyes, lips and cheeks. It’s all about enhancing our beauty in 2018 — not covering it up. According to celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta told Stylecaster:
“We will be seeing a lot less caked on foundation and more focus on embracing your natural features. I personally love seeing someone’s freckles shine through their makeup! To this effect, I think we’re going to be seeing the heavy highlight start to disappear.”
The Golden Girl
Rihanna stole 2017 with her inclusive and amazing new makeup line Fenty Beauty and she’s showering us with gold in 2018 with her Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter – Trophy Wife. Become a golden girl this spring and summery by layering Trophy Wife anywhere and everywhere on your pretty faces.
Metallic makeup in all shades will be hot in 2018, so feel free to delve into several big colors including ones with glitter. It’s all about metallic this year for lips, eyes and cheeks so go big, or go home!
Beauty 2018 Skincare
Last but certainly not least, in beauty for 2018, skincare is taking an even bigger turn to nature. As brands tap into our natural resources for the best in anti-aging and flawless skin, women are going to benefit big!
Super food Ingredients
Nature is making a big splash in skincare this year with cleaner and safer ingredients. Products and brands ‘free of’ harmful ingredients are considered ‘clean’ and expect to see this being the focus for big brands brands in 2018. From facial masks to eye creams, it’s all about tapping into nature for effectiveness.
Rachel Winard of Soapwalla shares what to see in 2018:
“I think we’ll continue to see the trend of superfoods as powerhouse ingredients in our skincare (think chia seed, chlorophyll, sea vegetables, probiotics) These ingredients are chock full of vitamins and minerals, and have been shown to have unparalleled benefits when applied topically as well as internally.” Stylecaster
The new oil to obsess over is a lightweight balancing oil that deeply penetrates to protect dry skin. Moringa oil is on the rise as the next big beauty ingredient big brands will be using in 2018. This beauty oil is ideal for removing wrinkles and preventing facial skin from sagging as we age.
Not just for your face, this beauty oil is excellent for your hair and scalp.
Facial rollers are the newest beauty 2018 craze that are easy to use and inexpensive. They come in a few different forms with varying goals but all are popular and are keeping some from expensive salons for their beauty routines. The Derma roller is like a lawn aerator for your face that pokes tiny holes in your face to promote collagen production and enhance product effectiveness.
Not into needles? Try a jade roller which stimulates circulation for plump, glowing skin and improve skin elasticity. Use this roller for a gentle facial massage to help to reduce wrinkles, replenish the facial muscles and revitalize your skin.
