Beauty and Beyond: The Latest Skincare and Makeup Trends to Try

Skincare and makeup trends have come a long way since the days of foundation, blush and mascara. Nowadays we have products that help us look more awake in the morning and banish cellulite with just one application (that’s right, it takes just ONE application!). Here are some of my favorite recent skincare and makeup trends that are worth trying out:

1. Contouring

Contouring is the art of using makeup to sculpt your face and make it appear slimmer. The goal is to create shadows where there are none, so that the light hits certain areas of your face more than others. This will create an illusion of depth and dimension, making you look like you have a slimmer nose, cheekbones or jawline.

To contour:

  • Contour your cheekbones by applying a brown shade under them with a brush or sponge (for best results use powder).
  • Contour along the sides of your nose with a darker shade than what appears in its natural coloration (it should be slightly darker than normal skin tone). You want to start at about where the bridge meets each nostril then blend out towards temple area so there are no harsh lines–this will create shadowing around nostrils which gives illusion that they’re smaller than they actually are!

2. De-puffing eye masks

If you’re looking for a way to de-puff your eyes after a long night of sleep or crying, a de-puffing eye mask is the perfect solution. How do you use one? Simply apply it as you would any other type of face mask and wait 20 minutes while it works its magic on those puffy bags under your eyes! Be sure to put on some relaxing music before applying so that your mind can relax alongside your skin.

There are many benefits associated with using these types of masks: they reduce inflammation, improve circulation to reduce swelling and redness around the eyes (which makes them look less tired), tighten up loose skin around them (making it appear firmer), increase moisture levels within deeper layers within that area making things feel softer overall – all while being gentle enough not irritate sensitive areas like eyelids which sometimes happen when using other products on those parts specifically designed only for use elsewhere such as lips/cheeks etcetera…

3. Brightening your complexion with highlighters and illuminators

If you’re looking to brighten your complexion and make it look glowing, highlighters and illuminators are the way to go. These products are used to add light where there is none, which makes them perfect for highlighting areas like cheekbones and brow bones. The difference between these two types of products is that a highlighter will appear more metallic in color while an illuminator has more of a sheer finish.

Illuminators can be used on their own or layered over foundation (or both!). If you want something with more coverage than a BB cream but less than liquid foundation, then this might be what works best for you!

4. Exfoliating lips

Exfoliating lips is a great way to get rid of dry skin and make your lip color look more vibrant. The best way to exfoliate lips is by using a lip scrub, which you can buy at any drugstore or beauty supply store. You can also make your own with ingredients like sugar or coconut oil!

For best results, apply the scrub before bedtime so it has time to sink into the skin overnight. Then wash off any residue with warm water in the morning.

5. Cooling your body to banish cellulite and stretch marks

  • What is cellulite?
  • What causes it?
  • How to prevent it:
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • Exercise regularly, at least three times a week for at least 30 minutes each time.
  • How to treat it:
  • Try topical creams and lotions that contain retinol or vitamin C; these ingredients help stimulate collagen production in your skin, which can improve the appearance of cellulite over time by plumping up the tissue under the surface layer of skin (dermis).

6. Waking up to a face full of makeup

To start, you should be aware that a good night’s sleep is just as important to your skin as any skincare product. It helps your body repair and regenerate itself so that when you wake up in the morning, there are fewer signs of aging or damage. You should also be sure to remove all traces of makeup before bedtime so that it doesn’t sit on top of your skin overnight–this can lead to breakouts or irritation in some cases.

In order for this trend to work well for you, it’s important that you have both a nighttime routine and an early morning routine (if possible). Your nighttime routine should include removing all traces of makeup with an oil-based cleanser; applying toner; moisturizing; using eye cream; and sleeping with SPF protection if needed (since most people forget about this part). Then when getting ready in the morning: apply sunscreen first thing; then use an exfoliating scrub while showering/bathing–this will help remove dead skin cells more efficiently than simply washing with soap alone! Afterward follow up by putting on another layer of moisturizer followed by foundation if desired (or BB cream). Lastly finish off with concealer under eyes – don’t forget these steps!

7. First things first – prepping your skin for makeup application

As you prepare to apply your makeup, it’s essential to make sure that your skin is prepped and ready for the application process. The most important thing is to use an exfoliator on a regular basis so that you remove dead cells from the surface of your face. You can use either a manual or chemical exfoliator, depending on what works best for you and what kind of results are desired (manual options will give better results over time).

Once those dead cells are gone, it’s time for hydrating! Hydration helps keep skin looking young by increasing elasticity and reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as improving overall texture of the skin. There are several different ways in which this can be achieved: using moisturizing creams/lotions; applying serums; using masks regularly (once per week at least). Make sure whatever method(s) work best with each individual person – everyone has different needs!

8. A primer for brown girls only!

You can use an all-over face primer, or you can choose one that’s targeted toward your specific skin concerns. For example, if you have oily skin and want to help keep your makeup from sliding off during the day, look for an oil-free option with mattifying properties. If dry patches are a problem for you or just want something lightweight that won’t clog pores or cause breakouts, there are plenty of options available in this category as well.

If you’re going out on the town with friends and family members who don’t know what they’re doing when it comes time to apply makeup (or even worse: they have no idea how much time they take), then having a primer on hand is essential–it helps keep everything together so everything stays put until after midnight!

9. Highlighting and contouring your nose bridge to make it look thinner and straighter than it is (applies equally well to men)

Nose contouring is a technique that uses highlighter and bronzer to make the bridge of your nose appear thinner. It’s also used to create shadows where there are none, so you can define your features better.

Here’s how it works: Blend a cream or liquid highlighter into the tops of both cheeks, down the center of your nose and across its tip–but not too far down! (You don’t want to highlight what isn’t there.) Then use powder bronzer on those same areas but blend it into the highlighter with a large fan brush for an airbrushed finish. Some people also apply their foundation before blending in their contour products so as not to lose any coverage underneath all those layers!

The best way to do this at home is by using three brushes: one for each product type (liquid/cream) plus an additional one for blending purposes only; otherwise things get messy fast! You should also wear sunscreen daily because exposure causes wrinkles over time…so protect yourself while looking good at once!”

10. Making sure your brows are in place before you do anything else (especially if you have a unibrow – oh my god, don’t run away from me!)

When it comes to eyebrows, the key is to find a balance between overdoing it and completely neglecting them. Your brows should be shaped so that they’re in proportion with your face shape. If you have a wide face, for example, thin eyebrows will look too heavy on top of your forehead and under eyes – but thick ones will make you appear older than necessary (and potentially give the impression that you have an unibrow).

If your brows are too thin or sparse, fill them in using an eyebrow pencil or powder product that matches their natural color as closely as possible (or go lighter if they’re quite dark). You can also try using a few strokes of mascara on each individual hair at its base – this will give them more volume without making them look fake! Finally; use tweezers regularly throughout the day when needed (especially at night) because stray hairs always seem to show up when least expected…

11. Blush that smells like flowers! Or peaches! Or coconuts! But mostly flowers, because who doesn’t love flowery smelling makeup?

Blush is a great way to add color to your face, and it’s especially useful if you’re trying to define your cheekbones or highlight your face. For example, if you have dark circles under your eyes (and who doesn’t?), blush can help make them look less obvious.

Blush comes in many different shades and formulas including pink, peach and coral; there are even blushes that smell like flowers! Or peaches! Or coconuts! But mostly flowers because who doesn’t love flowery smelling makeup?
