Keen to update your look or try a hot new product this season? Here’s what’s new, along with some fresh ways to rev up your winter beauty routine.
Get ready for Fenty beauty
The biggest bombshell to hit beauty shelves since Kylie Cosmetics has been confirmed. The truth is, we were never ready. Rihanna finally confirmed her beauty range will be launching “This fall”, three months after we kinda, sorta lost it after an Instagram page was created for the brand and then shortly deleted. Way to get the people going! RiRi is known for her edgy style and breaking boundaries, so this new venture has us rather excited. Beauties can sign up to ensure you get all the details as they’re released. Kylie’s kits are now available on takealot.com, so here’s hoping Fenty Beauty will be too.
This is hot on the heels of the BECCA x Chrissy Teigen Glow Face Palette that offers an “endless summer glow” and the news that Karl Lagerfeld will be launching a beauty collection of his own. Watch out, Kylie!
Barbed wire brows, anyone? It’s all about statement brows these days. Beauties on the “Gram” are getting rather creative and simply having full brows doesn’t cut it. From #BarbedWireBrows (pictured above) to #FeatherBrows that make your brows look like, well, feathers, and the more adventurous #DragonBrows. Check them out on Instagram and let us know if you’ll experiment with this look.
The Acupress Jade Roller Massager seems to be the latest beauty must-have. The face and neck massager uses a Jade crystals and the healing powers believed to be attributed to the stone. It is used to roll on and relax the body, reduce dark circles under the eyes and puffiness, and overall promote blood circulation to the eye area. The Jade stone has long been used for its detoxifying properties to reduce water retention and inflammation, making it good for bloating too.
So how does it work? Kristin Petrovich, author of the book Elemental Energy states “We are made up of water, tissues, and minerals, our bones have a crystalline structure, and just as we have an electronic exchange with the Earth, we have an electronic exchange with crystals, gemstones, and precious minerals”. The energy is believed to work with the body’s energy to create a sense of balance. We spotted it on Amazon, if you’re keen to try.
It’s all about experimenting with colour. The latest hair dye trend? Pearlescent hair! It’s dominating Pinterest boards and Insta beauties are taking note. Think shiny, pearl-like effects and multidimensional tones of colour. Any colour goes, just like pearls vary in colour, so go for platinum, to mother-of-pearl rainbow hues with a pearly sheen. It’s reportedly not a very easy look to achieve though, because hair needs to be stripped down to a light blond, without any “warmth”, and then colourists work to create your desired shade – A.K.A more than one visit to the salon. A beauty in the office tried it and we’re having serious hair envy.
Style and beauty have taken a turn for the more adventurous and slightly against the grain. Don’t be afraid to experiment with something new, but remember, moisturising never goes out of style, no matter what season we’re in!
Let us know how you feel about these new trends – and Rihanna’s upcoming new beauty line. Eep!
