Beauty Trends: What’s In & Out

LipstickIN: Matte or stained lips in shades like fuchsia, red, bubblegum pink and peachy nudes.

OUT: High-glossed lips and boring lipstick shades like mauve.

“During the spring/summer 2013 runway shows, bold poppy colors in all shades of matte were the hot trend,” says Citizens of Beauty Founder and Makeup Artist, Kendra Stanton.

Don’t have a matte lipstick? Stanton suggests lightly patting a translucent powder over your lipstick to take a shiny lip to a matte in moments.

BrowsIN: Thick, well-groomed brows.

Out: Pencil-thin, overly-tweezed brows.

“Having brows that are thick(er) and more of their natural shape is on trend,” Stanton reports. That doesn’t mean you should go totally Amazon woman; eyebrows still need some shape.

Try a colorless brow setting pencil like NYX’s Eyebrow Shaper ($8.75) to keep brows in check.

 

GlamIn: Glamorous-grungy, textured hair.

Out: Perfect, beachy waves.

“Put down the curling iron and embrace your natural texture to create a style that is textured and controlled,” says Oribe, Co-founder and Creative Director of Oribe Hair Care.

He suggests their Après Beach Wave and Shine Spray to separate and clump the hair for gorgeous texture and shine. “It’s undone, modern and sexy.”

 

Blurred OmbreIn: The NEW blurred ombré hair.

Out: Blunt ombré hair color.

Trade in last year’s dramatic ombré hair color for a more natural, sun-kissed look.

Famed colorist Johnny Ramirez (LA, NYC, and Miami) teases small sections of hair, dips the ends in bleach and uses his fingers to blend upward into the teased strands for a blurred ombré effect. “You can look at it from any angle and there are no lines,” says Ramirez.
