Regardless of your individual style, it's a good idea to get ahead of certain trends before they become too popular.
To help steer you in the right direction when it comes to makeup and nails, Pinterest shared its top beauty Pins indicating some trends that are predicted to be huge in 2019.
From shimmery nails to berry-coloured lips, these are the upcoming trends you can expect to see everywhere in the new year.
Pinterest searches for foiled eye shadow have increased by 169%. And into the new year, that percentage is expected to continue rising.
Unless you're a serious makeup enthusiast, the word foil might lead you to think of kitchen supplies. But rest assured, foiled eye shadow doesn't actually contain aluminium foil.
Foiled looks are usually created by using a wet brush to apply a metallic shade of eye shadow or loose pigments. The results should be shiny and reminiscent of metal.
The high shine of foiled pigments shouldn't scare away those who typically aim for natural looks.
Fans of understated eye makeup can use foiled eyeshadow to highlight the inner eye corner, or as a small highlight in the centre of the eyelid.
In the modern makeup world, many companies sell shadows with foiled finishes, essentially giving the same metallic effect without requiring you to use to a damp brush.
Between expensive salon services and DIY tricks, there are hundreds of ways to paint, shape, and style nails. But in 2019, ombre-coloured nails are expected to be the most popular.
Painting your own ombre nails might be difficult if you're not already well versed in nail art, and getting them professionally styled could come with a hefty price.
To achieve this particular trend, try a press-on manicure or ombre nail stickers. Not only will this give you a better gradient effect, but it could also save you time and money.
Searches for this nail style have recently increased by 60%, but the upcoming winter holidays might make that number go up even higher.
Technically, you can achieve the shimmery nail look in a variety of ways.
For example, you can choose a metallic polish to get the look, or you can opt for a polish that contains chunks of glitter.
Similarly, you don't have to coat your entire nail with a reflective polish. Instead, you can incorporate the shimmer effect by using a shiny colour to create small details and sparkling patterns.
Though lip shades like berry are typically considered to be winter colours, there's a good chance that darker lip products will trend throughout the new year.
Ahead of 2019, searches for dark berry lips have increased by 39%.
Whether you can't live without matte lipstick or you're all about gloss, there are dark berry shades on the market for everyone.
