Now that 2019 is finally upon us, you may be thinking about revamping your look for a new year. And if your resolutions also include switching to more natural beauty products, read on. Here are some of the trending looks that appeared on the runway in this year’s Spring 2019 fashion shows and how to get the look with natural products.
Glossy Skin Minimalist
Less was more in last year’s spring runway shows where many stylists went for no-makeup looks or limited it to just a stroke of carefully-placed, bold color on the eyelids or lips. But the foundation of all these au natural looks is just that, foundation that makes skin look clean and glossy. Natural foundations are just as effective as conventional products, you just need to choose the right base for your unique complexion. This may seem daunting since it can make or break the whole look, but it really comes down to understanding your skin type and then choosing a shade that complements it.
Lipstick is also trending minimalist with sheer, hint-of-color lips that look youthful and sweet. To get that berry-stained look with natural ingredients, shop for lipsticks that are formulated with fruit pigments and natural minerals rather than synthetic dyes. And natural and organic lipsticks also tend to include healthful ingredients like cocoa butter, vitamin E and antioxidants to nurture your lips and keep them moist. Bonus!
A Pop of Neon
The hottest makeup trend on the runways right now is bold, bright neon eyeliners and shadows. Applied in thin stripes and at avant-garde angles, acid green, electric yellow and hot pink accents are where it’s at. This decidedly unnatural looking style can, in fact, be attained without dousing your eyes in harmful chemicals. Look for mineral-based eye products free from synthetic dyes, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, and potentially destructive nanoparticles.
Glittery Eyes and Nails
Super glammy glitter eyelashes, shadows, and nails to match popped up everywhere on the runways from Kate Spade to Tadashi Shoji. With glitter on the blacklist at festivals and probably your mom’s car, it may not seem like the easiest trend to hop on if you’re trying to be kind to mother nature and your body. Not true! Biodegradable eco-glitter is all the rage. Typically made from plant-based cellulose, eco-glitter is just as sparkly as conventional glitter, and it’s less itchy on your skin, too.
Whether you are going for a minimalist, nature child look in 2019, or you want to make your bold and sparkly style less harmful for body and earth, there are all-natural ways to turn up in the new year looking fresh off the runway.Want to try on our favorite runway looks digitally in the Perfect365 app?
