For beauty enthusiasts, trends in beauty have always been a mixed bag. Many trends have been quietly growing online for a long time. Others easily recycle older trends for a brand new generation. We take a look at some beauty trends that will be very prevalent in 2019.

Probiotic skin care

Over the past few years, probiotic skin care products have been filling beauty store aisles. Probiotics are living bacteria that can prevent pathogens from entering your system. This bacteria can also enhance your skin cells. Companies such as LaFlore, Aveeno, and Mother Dirt have been delivering top-notch probiotic filled products. As expected, results may vary depending on your DNA. “One challenge in the development of these skin care products is that each person may have a different need in terms of their skin microflora, and that microflora is inherently different in different body parts,” Dr. Suzanne Saffie-Siebert told Today.

Baby bangs

In 2014, platinum-selling artist Beyonce shocked the Internet with her new baby bangs. Fashion blogs from all over had plenty to say about her sudden change of hairstyle. Recently, baby bangs have seen a strong rise in celebrities such as Ariana Grande and Bella Hadid. Like any other hairstyle, there’s a lot of work needed to keep it fresh. “It is a super big commitment and if you are not ready to commit, don’t do it. Super short bangs are something you have to work on every morning. It’s not a style that flows – you have to wake up and iron them down. It’s not a wash and go type of style,” celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen told Fashionista.


Since the ’90s, headbands have always come in and out of style. In 2018, actress Marissa Jaret Winokur rejuvenated their popularity by wearing them on Celebrity Big Brother. “I wear them all the time outside the house. I wear headbands because I just love them and have like 1,000 at my house. So I brought enough because my mindset was I’m going to bring stuff to share,” she told US Magazine. Other celebrities that have been seen wearing headbands include Rachel Weisz and Lupita Nyong’o.

Jeweled nails

Rapper Cardi B has been gaining attention on the red carpet with her eye-popping jeweled nails. Her longtime nail artist Jenny Bui got inspiration from a trendsetting country. “In 2000, one of my friends sent me a catalog from Japan, and inside were pictures of huge bling on nails. I love diamonds and bling, so I was like ‘Oh my god, imagine if I put the diamonds on my customers’ hands so they don’t have to wear jewelry. How nice would that be?'” Bui told Cosmopolitan. With its rise in social media, jeweled nails will be a hot purchase for nail fanatics.

Glitter makeup

In recent years, glitter has made its way from decorating gifts to decorating our face. Glitter has become the perfect accessory for a night on the town or a music festival. Stars such as Beyonce and Kim Kardashian have made this a key item in their cosmetics brand. “The new explosion of glitter-mania comes from the fact that it’s suddenly grown up and lost its associations with just being kitsch, carnival or Christmas. It’s become an exciting new dress-up tool for real women. A well-chosen accent of glitter should have the same effect as a good piece of jewelry,” MAC’s director of make-up artistry Terry Barber told Vogue. The most popular form of facial glitter on the market is glitter eyeshadow. Nearly every female celebrity has been seen sporting this at high profile events.
