7 K-Beauty Trends You’ll Be Seeing Everywhere This Spring
Spring isn’t in full swing yet, but we wanna be ready whenever it decides to show up. A new season always brings new trends with it, and spring 2019 comes packed with very fun ones. While with skincare and makeup there’s no one rule to follow, learning about what’s coming can serve as inspiration for your next beauty spree. Wondering which eyeshadow palette, lipstick, or moisturizer to get next? Look no further, because here’s a list of the trends and beauty items you wanna get your hands on ASAP.
Shine Bright Like a Diamond
Is there really something as too much glitter? K-pop tried it, the masses adopted it, so now get ready to be covered in glitter all season long. From sparkly lipstick to metallic eyeshadow, shiny highlighters, and glitter… lots of glitter. The best thing about this trend is you can actually use it anywhere on your body, from your nails to your neck, arms, and every single spot on your face.
You’ve probably heard about Cica (short for Centella Asiatica) before, but you’ll see it everywhere this season. Cica is an ancestral herb able to calm down redness, inflammation, acne, and heal scars, AKA, a godsend. So far we’ve seen it as part of moisturizers, toners, and acne treatments, but this year we’ll have it in every form possible: think cleansers, balms, serums, mists, and even some makeup items.
Beauty Inside Out
Korea has been known for their great quality skincare and makeup for decades now, but there’s a new category in the market, and everyone is obsessing over it: skin supplements. While these are not new, K-beauty found its way to the “beauty from within” trend, and this season, we’ll see everyone jumping onto the bandwagon. While supplements are not the solution to skin problems, they can be a great way to support your skincare routine.
We’ll see collabs all over the place! While K-beauty is constantly releasing new collaborations between brands and cute characters or K-pop idols, you can’t even imagine how many we’ll see this season. Makeup, skincare, fashion… put on your seatbelt because we’re in for a beauty-collab ride.
Colors All Over
If you’re more of a nude-earthy colors kind of person, you’re about to get tempted by the full color wheel itself. We know spring and summer are already the most colorful seasons, but this time, it’ll be stronger than you’ve ever seen it. Colorful mascaras, eyeshadows, lipsticks, blushes, highlighters… you name it, you’ll find it.
Forget about regulars mists, it’s time for fog mists to take over. These uber-fine sprays are the latest trend in Korea, and you’ll understand why with the first pump. The particles are so tiny it almost feels like walking face first into a cloud. The greatest part? They’re not only meant to hydrate, but to also serve as makeup enhancers and glow boosters.
Vitamin C Lips
Say goodbye to cherry lips and welcome the orangeade into your life! This season is all about citrus-tinted lips, such as orange, coral, yellow, and gold. On top of that, a layer of juicy gloss or hydrating balm will seal the deal, leaving you with vitamin C-packed lips!
