2014 was certainly the year of innovation in the beauty industry, and we’ re predicting even bigger and better trends for 2015. From non-invasive treatments to stem cell centered products and makeup that’s more nude than made up, here are six trends we are following closely this year!
The beauty industry has made great strides in natural, chemical-free products, and they’re lining the shelves of every beauty and health food store. The demand for green and safe products greatly expanded in 2014, and this year brings promise of even more.
This year brings a focus to your natural flushed look, aka the all over nude makeup trend! This no-makeup, makeup trend started on the runway in 2014 and was quickly adapted for normal, everyday wear. The key to perfecting this look requires the use of neutral toned makeup products. Try one of our favorites, Glo Minerals base that camouflages flaws with a sheer coverage.
Fresh, Dewy Skin
Fresh, dewy skin will be a staple look for 2015. You know it’s what you’ve always wanted! This fresh-faced look is all about the right mix of highlighting and mattifying. Use a lightweight foundation, followed with the dusting of a light translucent powder all over. For cheeks, start with a powder blush and sparingly apply a highlighter on top of the cheekbone to enhance your look! A bright pink blush will be very flattering against your dewy skin. Skin gym tip: Mist rose water over your makeup as a setting spray for a healthy glow and an amazing, dewy finish.
Bright pinks and bold reds will dominate this year’s lips. Adding a pop of color will create a bright contrast against your nude face. For long wear, go for a vibrant shade in a lip stain or matte lipstick. We dare you to get bold with your lips in 2015!
Nail art is taking a backseat to nearly-naked nails this year! Get the milky white look by wearing sheer polish underneath a matte top coat. Stick to sheer nudes and barely-there pinks as your base color for this manicure trend!
