If you want to get ahead of your beauty game for 2019, thanks to Pinterest you can. Pinterest’s 100 is an edit of the biggest and best trends for the year ahead, and we delved through the stats to find exactly what makeup, nails, skincare and hair trends we’re going to be seeing everywhere next year. From lilac hair, to bold lips, witch hazel, and almond nails, here’s everything you need to know.
1 Lilac hair
2016 was all about smokey lilac hair, but for 2019 we will see a return to straight up lilac dye. With Pinterest searches up +1077%, it’s time to book that hairdresser appointment to get involved with the biggest beauty trend of 2019, or just leave your purple shampoo on that little bit longer…
2 Embracing your greys
If Pinterest is anything to go by, you’ll no longer be scared of finding your first grey hair, in fact you’re actively go looking for it. Searches for ‘going grey’ are up +879%, proving we’re finally ready to embrace our silver roots.
3 Bold lips
Thanks to Glossier, 2018 saw the minimal makeup movement seriously challenge the heavy Instagram look. For 2019 prepare to compromise and pair your barely there base with a bold lip, as ‘standout lip colour’ searches increased by +467%.
4 Powder nails
If you haven’t managed to kick your gel nail addiction, prepare to become obsessed with powder dipping, or SNS as it’s otherwise known. By using powder instead of gel, your manicure will last as long as a month, without any of the damage of gel nails. With searches for ‘powder dip nails’ up +442%, it’s worth booking that nail appointment now.
5 Witch hazel
As skincare continues to eclipse our makeup routines, searches for ‘witch hazel’ have increased by 305%. Yes that old school, spot-fighting ingredient just got a brand new shiny makeover.
6 Almond nails
If you need a bit of help remembering all the different nail shapes read our guide here, but all you need to remember for 2019 is ‘almond’. As we bid farewell to the beautiful, but impractical coffin nail, ‘almond nail’ searches are up +97%.
7 Glossy makeup
Matte addicts look away now because gloss is back and it’s more sticky than ever. Not only will we be ditching our matte liquid lipsticks for lip gloss, but we’ll also be extending the shininess to our skin, eyelids and wherever else we want our hair to get stuck. With searches for ‘glossy makeup’ up +89%, it’s time to embrace the stickiness.
8 Liquid exfoliators
First of all, if you haven’t tried a liquid exfoliator yet, where have you been? Scarier than they sound, liquid exfoliators, or acids as you might know them, are way more effective at removing dead skin cells, brightening skin tone and evening complexion. Searches for ‘liquid exfoliators’ are up +58%, so get started early with one of our favourites from Glossier.
9 Natural lash lifts
If you’ve ever had a lash lift, you will know how it can turn your lashes from zero to hero, in an hour and 45 minutes. But if you don’t have the time, or more importantly the money, you’re not alone. Searches for ‘natural lash lifts’ including hacks like grapeseed oil and aloe vera are up +52%.
10 Cropped bangs
When it comes to fringes, we’re all commitment phobes, but it’s time to get serious in 2019. Searches for ‘cropped bangs’ are up +51%, so it’s time to channel your inner Bella Hadid and get those long wanted baby bangs
