LFW 2019: Our Makeup Trend Predictions
Forget Valentine’s Day: February is all about London Fashion Week.
That’s right, from the 15th to the 19th of Feb our favourite models will return to the runway, showcasing the next big move in fashion, beauty, hair and makeup, and we simply cannot wait.
Being the eager bunch that we are here at the Cosmetify HQ, we’ve taken things into our own hands, done a little digging, and predicted a load of makeup trends that we expect to see takeover 2019.
While we don’t like to claim that we can tell the future, we’re pretty confident that we’ll see these looks storm the catwalk. So jump in there early and unleash your inner fashionista, as we provide you with all that you need to know.
1. THE HIGH BROW
Don't fret, those skinny 90's brows aren't coming back any time soon. Chunky, bushy eyebrows are still all the rage, and in fact, they're on the rise. Yep, we're predicting that sky-high brows will be the next big thing in the eyebrow department. While they may be a little more wearable than the feather and halo brows that circulated some time ago, they're definitely one to try for the daring beauty gurus out there.
Benefit High Brow
There really couldn't be a more fitting product to help you achieve this look. The creamy pencil effortlessly glides over skin, leaving you with brows that look lifted.
2. THE COLOURED LID AND LASH COMBO
We’re expecting the catwalk to boast a cocktail of colours this year, as this vibrant lid and lash combo becomes a major hit. From pastels to neon, this is definitely a look for the bold books.
Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Couture Mascara
YSL make being matchy-matchy all the easier with their lush range of lacquer-like mascaras. Choose to coat your lashes with colours such as cobalt blue, hot pink and dark green.
3. WEIRD AND WONDERFUL LINER
Wave goodbye to subtle wings and sultry smoky eyes as weird and wonderful eyeliner makes it debut. It’s time to get experimental as you can expect everything from coloured cat eyes to off-centred flicks and even underliner. We love this look because it means we don’t have to stress if we mess up - instead, it's all in the name of fashion.
NYX Professional Makeup Vivid Brights Eyeliner
Match your liner to your mood with NYX Vivid Brights. Nine neon shades deliver intense and high-impact colour that will put you bang on trend.
4. ALL OR NOTHING
Bold lips have always been a biggie but this year they’ll be back with a bang - think minimal makeup but statement lips. This is a timeless classic that is flawless both on and off the runway, and we're here for it.
NARS Cosmetics Full Vinyl Lip Lacquer
NARS are the OG's when it comes to in-your-face lip pigments that last all day without drying out your pout. Browse their super cool Vinyl collection to find the vivid lippy that suits you best - you'll be spoiled for choice.
It’s safe to say 2019 is looking a little artsy as not only do we have colour everywhere, we also have graphics. Taking a punk rock approach, anything from simple triangular liner to geometric eye looks will be thrown into the makeup mix this year.
Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
This easy-to-use liner will bring all the drama to your eye look. Leaving dramatic bold lines that won't smudge, smear or fade, it's a must-have for when you're getting creative on the lids.
6. A FRECKLED FACE
The freckled faces of the office are rejoicing that fashion and freckles could actually be a thing. We’re predicting that we’ll be seeing a lot more faces sporting cute sunkissed beauty marks – whether they’re real or fake, we’re big fans.
Clinique Pretty Easy Liquid Eyelining Pen
Freckle up with this easy-peasy brown liquid eyeliner from Clinique. The super-fine tip allows you to create the small and precise freckles, whilst the 24-hour smudge-proof formula will come in handy for the times your forget about your newfound feature.
7. GLOSSY SKIN
Last but not least, glossy skin is here to stay. Tying in with the all or nothing vibe, the highlighted ‘wet’ look will surely be papped in London next month.
MAC Prep + Prime Fix + Spray
Stay hydrated and high beam with MAC's popular prep and prime fix spray. Get your daily dose of nutrients, whilst gold and glittery flecks lace your skin for an all-over effortless glow.
And, that's a wrap. As we patiently sit and wait to see how we score, you can find us in front of the mirror practicing our flicks, lips and freckles.
