How to Reclaim Your Beauty and Style in 2018? While some of us are super adventurous and ready to dive in and try every new trend that emerges, other are, so to say, set in their ways. They know what looks good on them in terms of fashion and which shades and hues, as well as grooming and makeup techniques, get the job done. However, being ‘set in your way’ is right around the corner from being ‘stuck in a rut’. Having an established sense of personal style is great, but there comes a time when you need to shake things up.
How to Reclaim Your Beauty and Style in 2018
Change is good, and you’ll never know if something new will be surprisingly flattering until you try. The beginning of each new year is a great time to dive in and bring a breath of fresh air to both your wardrobe and your vanity table. In order to get you out of the rut and help you reclaim and slightly upgrade your look, we’re bringing you some of the year’s best trends, and you’ll surely find something that is right up your alley.
If you have an Instagram account there is no way you haven’t noticed the abundance of berets rocked by every established or aspiring fashionista. In the sea of wool winter hats and the almost passé fedoras, this winter (as well as spring and autumn) accessory can give you an instant dose of chic no matter what you’re wearing. They exude the effortless vibe of French girls, and the influence of the chicest nation is spreading at the speed of light, and given how flattering it looks and how strong its ability to elevate any outfit is, this comes as no surprise, so find your color and do it like a French girl.
The brave and the beautiful
It may sound like the name of a soap opera, but today we’re actually here to familiarize you with the mighty Ultra Violet, a color deemed color of the year by the Pantone Color Institute. Yes, it’s a conspicuous and larger-than-life color, one that will definitely bring your style back to life and perhaps even stop traffic. There are gorgeous pieces that you can put to use to incorporate this color, ranging from cute and subtle sweaters to gorgeous day-to-night dresses, so just pick your weapon of choice and get ready to dazzle.
The summer must
One of the trends we’re most crazy about, so infatuated with that we can hardly wait for spring and summer to arrive are the ever form-flattering bodysuits. In an age in which athleisure and work leisure rule, this garment will work hard for you. It can be classy, and given the right accessories – flats, an oversized blazer, a pair of stylish culottes, it makes for a stylish office essential. It can be the epitome of the athleisure trend when worn with cozy sneakers, and a hoodie, and it can be super chic and romantic for those breezy summertime dates when paired with a pleated skirt and chic pumps. It’s a multi-purpose essential that you can wear on almost any occasion and look stunning and appropriate every single time.
The secret weapon
Hundreds upon thousands of women have already chosen among the sea of mighty weapons of skincare and it’s time you get familiarized with this power player. It goes by the name of serum, and it’s a product that definitely delivers on its promise.
The powerful active ingredients of a serum come in a light formula that can be used to target a number of issues from dehydration, blemishes, sun damage, wrinkles and much, much more. A moisturizer is still required to seal the deal, but if you introduce a serum to your routine, you will never look back.
The confidence booster
One of the biggest confidence boosting beauty secrets, aside from great skincare and subsequently gorgeous skin, is a great makeup routine. We know we don’t need makeup to look good, we’re gorgeous just as we are, but it’s still our little ritual that makes us feel more powerful and gives a good start of the day.
If you already have a go-to daily makeup routine that is super complimenting, kudos to you, but that shouldn’t stop you from experimenting a bit. You’d be surprised with how certain techniques and color palettes can make you pop even though you never thought they would.
Contouring and strobing are two techniques that are still going strong, so why not dabble in that art – you could fall head over heels for glowing cheeks. Warm eyeshadow palettes have also taken the world by a storm, and surprisingly they work so well on a variety of skin tones, so treat yourself to a Naked Heat palette and start playing with those burnt reds and oranges. Those eyes will stop traffic and you will look completely reinvented.
