There isn’t a beauty trend that doesn’t seem off-limits these days, from Bella Hadid’s “fox eyes” setting the trend for cosmetic surgery in young girls, to people who eat collagen powder to the spoon.
Hair and beauty experts from across the UK shared their beauty predictions, with Hollie Ellis from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics revealing that the “smokey eye” will be popular again.
GCT Lifestyle journalist and makeup artist Despina Karp took a look at the trends to watch this year (or what’s left of them) and here’s what we found.
The Return of the 80s Glam and Smokey Eyes Inspired
Hollie Ellis, a PRO Artist for Bobbi Brown with over 14,000 Instagram followers, has announced that makeup trends that were popular in the ’80s are set to return next year, including bold lip colors and smoky eyes. .
Her makeup advice?
- “For spring / summer, bright colors are a trend that we will see for sure. Whether it’s an accent on the eyes or lips, bold or a soft spot, it’s a look not only for the catwalk but also to stand out in a crowd.
- “Bold lips stand out more if you apply lip liner to give them that crisp, crisp effect. Outline and fill in your lips to serve as the base for your lipstick. Go with your bold lipstick for that statement look. I would recommend luxury lip pencils and matte lipsticks for bold lips that will stay perfect ”.
Cosmetic surgery: jaw massage and eye lift (fox eyes)
- Caroline Payne of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons talks about an increase in facial sculpting and jaw and chin contour in an effort to achieve a more flattering “video appeal look”.
- “The lighting on video calls is often very unflattering,” she said. “It makes people needlessly worry about their appearance. Many have focused on the lower face and worry about this area when they don’t realize that often it’s just the camera angle, shadows, and poor lighting.
- Payne also said she expects upper eyelid facelifts to become more and more popular throughout 2021. “Upper eyelid surgery can produce very good results and has long lasting and long lasting results. downtime, while still being one of the most affordable surgeries, ”she added. .
Anti-aging trends: LED light therapy
- Jennifer Rock, dermal facialist and founder of Skingredients, explained that home treatments are expected to remain popular throughout the next year (presumably as blockages continue).
- She said that “LED (Light Emitting Diodes) therapy is becoming an incredibly popular treatment in salons and clinics because it can target redness, acne, and aging without the need for physical touch or the risk of irritation.” skin. It is booming in multi-modality treatments, that is to say treatments that mix several therapies such as a peel plus LED, or mesotherapy and LED.
- “LED is very efficient and it is more and more common to see LED devices in the home – however, watch out for the buyer! Home LED devices cannot provide the same results as clinic LEDs. These devices just aren’t as powerful. With that in mind, if you’re looking for something that can help with spotlights, maybe an LED fixture could be a secondary line of defense for you.
- Celluma – the most recent and powerful form of light therapy will be a trend to watch out for. The treatment uses a face like mask that diffuses a combination of blue, red, and near infrared light, which stimulates circulation, firms the skin, and banishes any pimple-producing bacteria.
Chinese herbs? Trends in well-being and nutrition
- Unsurprisingly, Jennifer revealed that wellness and nutrition are also likely to become a fundamental part of the beauty industry.
- “Adaptogens, if you haven’t heard of them, are herbs that can help our bodies respond to stress when ingested, and I think we’ll see more of them in skin care. Some examples include ginseng, tulsi (holy basil), and ashwagandha. They also have topical benefits: Ginseng is believed to have antioxidant properties and is believed to have anti-inflammatory effects, holy basil is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial effects, and ashwagandha is believed to have antioxidant and antimicrobial properties and also brightens the skin.
Skin care trends
- Dr Bibi, of British Aesthetics, predicted: “I think 2021 will see a growth in the popularity of ‘combination fits’. It will be the era of the cosmetic medicine consumer who will benefit from a multi-faceted approach to facial and skin rejuvenation, using the advice of their doctor to incorporate medical grade skin care into their daily routine and learning how to combine them with skin boosters, advanced medical facials and delicately tailored injectables to achieve subtle, natural results.
- “The days of overly swollen lips and abnormal facial contours are long gone. “
- Lesley Reynolds, beauty / aesthetic expert and co-founder of Harley Street Skin, added that the impact of the lockdown on the skin will greatly affect skin care regimens in 2021.
- Lesley told the Daily Mail: “Increased screen time, poor diet, stress, lack of fresh air, constant hand washing and wearing masks have taken their toll on the skin of the country. , so the treatment of effects will be a major trend next year. It will be about inner beauty. Skin quality will be the new buzzword with products and treatments that promote good health, helping to improve skin conditions like rosacea and acne ”.
Trend: Collagen Supplements
- The resident facialist of Dorchester, Adeela Crown predicts an increase in beauty fanatics supporting their regimen with supplements to improve their health.
- “Consumers of beauty products are beginning to recognize the relationship between their diet and their skin. This heightened awareness has made unmanageable collagen the heroic ingredient of the moment. Collagen and its derivatives have become a mainstay of our daily skin care products like collagen creams, serums and sheet masks.
- “Ingestible collagen is bioidentical, which means our body recognizes it as its own, because it is already naturally found inside our dermis. Therefore, increasing collagen intake for several months can improve skin elasticity (i.e. wrinkles and roughness) as well as signs of aging.
- Just make sure you choose your collagen from a reliable, long-lasting source.
The mantra “prevention is better than cure” is so important when it comes to skin care and the health all around. I recommend adding collagen supplements to your diet and using SPF 30+ every day. I cannot stress enough the importance of protecting your skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays, especially if you live in Australia.
Your skin will thank you in your 30s, 40s and beyond!
