Unless you have been living under a rock, you must be well aware about this beauty trend that’s become a phenomenon in eye-makeup. Yes, we are talking about magnetic eyelashes.
According to Google’s 2018 Year in Review, “How to apply magnetic eyelashes” was one of the most searched for beauty questions in the US.
Magnetic lashes are basically false lashes secured with the help of magnets instead of glue. This is a beauty trend that made a huge splash last year and is continuing to make waves.
The reason: Simplicity of application and efficiency. Once you have got the knack of it they are much easier to apply than the traditional lashes. Yes, there is a learning curve and you need to remember to get them aligned on the lash-line. Once you have perfected this, you are all set literally.
Plus, the magnetic eyelashes are good value for money and completely mess free.
And to complement this huge trend is the magnetic eyeliner. Magnetic eyeliners help secure and lock the magnetic lashes into place. You can be assured that your liner stays in place no matter what the weather or routine with zero smudging or smearing.
The removal is also simple. You can remove a magnetic eyeliner quite easily with a makeup remover or micellar water. If you are concerned about safety, then it is completely safe
You can easily remove your magnetic eyeliner with makeup remover, or drugstore bought micellar water.
Magnetic eyeliner is often available in two formats – gel-based eyeliner and liquid liner. Choose the one that works for you.
One of the hottest trends for 2019 – monochromatic makeup is basically 50 shades of complexion.
It is the art of taking a colour and then extending its use by applying different shades of the same on your face.
If you are wondering how to do monochromatic makeup – work with one tone in a myriad of shades. Take a cream blusher to put a lip stain or use your liquid lipstick to work some magic on to your cheeks with a big, fluffy blusher.
Super bright eyeshadows
Tinted eye-liners are back with a bang but so are super bright eyeshadows. Some of the top brands have come out with brightly colored shadows to favor this trend.
The best way to wear it is in a single swipe. Use it as a single shade across the lids and pair it with fluttery lashes. The effect is dramatic but stunning.
There are so many fun and pop colours to choose from and the shadows are available in fun sizes too; for you to take them on the go.
K-beauty is always a step ahead when it comes to skin care and beauty regimen. If you have sensitive skin then trying out new products and creams always rings alarm bells.
Cica creams are the new hero for skincare launches that are designed for safety and gentleness. Cica creams are soothing and claim to calm irritated skin, toughen the barrier and moisturize gently. They supposedly work wonders if you are suffering reactions from:
- Dry patches
- Irritation from anti-ageing treatments
The main ingredient ( often called Gotu Kola or Tiger Grass) is a powerful, ancient herb used over thousands of years in China, Japan and Indonesia for a variety of benefits.
The South Korean market is thus flooded with cica creams that are cashing in on customers’ desire for this super ingredient – Centella asiatica. The trend started in South Korea will certainly continue in 2019 with several “Cica” products across countries.
