When it comes to beauty, things are set to get creative.

First up is the humble fringe, which will reportedly see a revival, albeit in ’baby’ form — if searches for “cropped bangs”, which are up 51 percent, are anything to go by. Going grey gracefully will also become more popular, with Pinterest searches increasing by a huge 879 percent lately. But don’t worry if grey isn’t bold enough — lilac hair colours also look set be a major trend, with searches having increased by a whopping 1077 percent.

As for makeup, Pinterest predicts that the first half of 2019 will be all about daring, standout lipstick shades (with searches up 467 percent), and lashings of gloss — whether it be on the eyes or the lips; searches for “glossy makeup” are up by 89 percent this year.

Eyelash care will also be a big focal point, with beauty fans predicted to spend more time showing their lashes some love by nurturing them with natural oils such as grapeseed oil or aloe vera.

Nails will be ’almond’ in shape (according to a 97 percent increase in searches) and dipped in powder so that manicures last for longer without being chipped, Pinterest claims. Finally, when it comes to skincare, liquid exfoliators (up 58 percent) and witch hazel solutions (up 305 percent) will be the name of the game.

When the Victoria’s Secret show was cancelled it didn’t come as a surprise.

With that in mind, we have decided to re-think the traditional Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show". From 2001 to 2018, (...)
