Top Makeup & Skincare Trends for Fall/Winter 2018
An exciting time of change as the weather cools, fall is the perfect opportunity to incorporate some of the season's hottest upcoming makeup, skincare, and wellness trends into your beauty arsenal. Just as pumpkin spice lattes and cozy sweaters come back into style, Global Corporate Educator for Osmosis Skincare and Osmosis Colour Mineral Cosmetics Ami Mallon shares her predictions for the top trends of the season.
Makeup Trend: Brows with Texture
It’s no surprise that brows have been on-trend for quite some time now, but the evolution they have made is extraordinary. Brows have moved from thin to big, bold, and overdrawn.
“This season’s take on brows is all about the natural texture of the hair itself," explains Mallon. “Brows are being shown brushed up, undone, and even boy-like. The key to this look? A good brow gel!”
Osmosis Colour’s Brow Gels have just the right amount of pigment and wearability for a more natural application that works to hold hairs in place but will also fill in blank areas as well.
Makeup Trend: Blue Toned Eyes
Although aqua blue on the eyes usually is considered a summer trend, we are nonetheless seeing hints of blue shades all over the runways for fall and winter this year. Blue is a playful alternative to brown or black on the eyes and works with every eye color.
For an azure blue eyeliner that stays-put throughout the day, try Osmosis Colour’s Navy Eye Pencil.
“This pencil can line the eyes or be used all over the lid as a daring shadow that mimics the depths of the ocean. The smooth, water-resistant formula includes vitamin E and jojoba oil to nourish hydrate, and condition for a comfortable, eye-popping dimension," adds Mallon.
Makeup Trend: Blush is Back
Good news! Blush is back with a vengeance, and it’s taking the place of that bronzy summertime tan. We see bright pops of peachy-pink, giving the skin that 'I’ve just been outside on the ski slopes' youthful and fresh look. Achieve this look with Osmosis Colour Crushed Coral Blush.
“This shade is the perfect mix of peach and pink shimmer to warm up the face and draw attention to the cheeks,” mentions Mallon. "Plus, its mineral pigments reflect light to create a soft-focus effect. It illuminates your features while minimizing the appearance of imperfections. Green tea extract neutralizes free radicals while moringa seed oil hydrates and nourishes. Vitamins A and C boost firmness and elasticity."
Skincare Trend: Inside Out Beauty
Ingestibles are all-the-rage when it comes to skincare. After all, you are what you eat! Supplements can treat specific skin conditions when topical skincare products falter. “I love Osmosis Skincare’s Complete Digestive Enzyme supplement, which contains many different types of enzymes,” explains Mallon. “It's designed to mimic the natural functions of the pancreas, tackling digestion, and allowing the body to absorb better and utilize nutrients, clearing skin, and offering a natural radiance.”
Skincare Trend: Supercharged Skincare
Skincare that is catered specifically to you, your skin type and skin’s needs have become popular. However, skincare that offers more is what we are seeing.
"I like to refer to this as 'boosted skincare' - it's skincare that is supercharged and filled with ingredients like peptides, vitamins, nutrients, antioxidants, growth factors, and superfoods for your skin. Osmosis Skincare features serums that are active concentrates, meaning they contain significantly less water than traditional skincare. Less water = more actives and more significant change to the skin upon use. A best seller, Osmosis Skincare’s Stemfactor Growth Factor Serum features advanced exosome technology to maximize the delivery of over 600 growth factors and skin proteins derived from adult stem cells to improve all aspects of skin damage and aging. This unique lightweight serum stimulates new cells and rebuilds collagen and elastin for a radiant, youthful complexion," says Mallon in closing.
