The Zoe Report: The 2019 Makeup Trends You Need To Know Ahead Of The New Year

With the New Year upon us, The Zoe Report’s recent article, The 2019 Makeup Trends You Need To Know Ahead Of The New Year, According To Pinterest, features the makeup trends that’ll be big in 2019. One of those trends features our Glazen Eye Gloss jelly-shadows. Read below to learn all about this achievable “glossy” trend.

“One of the most exciting things about a brand new year is the chance to rebrand. There’s no better time to set goals or try something new — and that goes for everything from your work life to your beauty routine. And while crushing your career goals is something a little more intensive, it’s super easy to switch up your makeup vibe for the year ahead. Ready to get a head start? You’ll be glad to know some of the biggest 2019 makeup trends are likely already in your repertoire this season.

Just how huge are these trends about to become? According to Pinterest’s trend drop, standout lip color has had a search increase of 467 percent over the past few months — that’s pretty much definitive proof that the look is gaining momentum. As for high-shine looks, Pinterest is reporting an increase of 89 percent in users searching for glossy makeup, so it’s safe to say you won’t be alone in giving the trend a try.

Because the trends have already started rising in popularity over the past few months, the best news about both trends is that it’s totally cool to start trying them now. Plus, the statement-making looks are ideal for holiday beauty — so go ahead and learn how to nail them, so you’ll be set for the new year before everyone else.

Glossy Makeup

When you picture a glossy look, you likely imagine high-shine lips coated with a generous layer of lacquer. It’s time to re-think the idea, however, because 2019’s version of glossy makeup is about achieving an all-over glimmer. But don’t give up on the currently-trending lip gloss — use it simultaneously with other high-shine products like dewy highlighters and glaze-like eye products. The result is a high-impact, goddess-like glow you’ll instantly become obsessed with (partially because it’s incredibly easy to create).

What makes the effect so simple to create and easy to wear? Think of it this way: because it’s all about placing a highlight anywhere that you want to emphasize, you can get as glossy as you like on any given day. Plus, you can use multi-tasking products in every area you want to add shine, making it a prime look for low-maintenance beauty buffs. To make sure your shine has a glossy finish, just be sure you select products that stay dewy on the skin (basically, you don’t want powder-based highlighters or shadows here). Then, all you have to do is slick it on, and you’re good to go.

Glazen Eye Gloss – This jelly-like eye product dries with a high-shine finish so eyes look glossy and glistening.”

“It’s officially December, people! That means holiday shopping just became real. It’s no longer a memory of the distant past or a vague note on next month’s to-do list. Now’s the time when we must become serious shoppers or else risk the perils of regifting a present from last year or showing up empty-handed to an intimate holiday party.

December also marks the time of the year when we start planning our most standout hair and makeup looks. (The holiday season is, after all, the unofficial Olympics of beauty.) Whether it’s for Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year’s Eve, or any other celebration, we attend endless social gatherings in the name of food, drink, and good cheer, and when we’re catching up with friends and family, we want to look our best. Luckily, Amazon has us covered. The mega retailer’s new December beauty launches have officially arrived, and as always, they’re good. Keep scrolling to see the 15 we’re shopping for our loved ones (and ourselves).

You can’t go wrong gifting with a nail polish set. Everyone loves nail polish, right? This one, [Delightful Darlings], from high-end nail brand butter LONDON, includes six different shades of polish that range from pale pink to crimson red.”

Elle.com: Should You Be Worried About The Ingredients in Your Nail Polish?

Patent Shine 10X Nail Polish

butter LONDON Patent Shine 10X™ Nail Lacquer was featured on Elle.com in a story titled, “Should You Be Worried About The Ingredients in Your Nail Polish?”

++

“Looking for a natural nail polish is not an easy feat. Chances are you’ve grabbed the polish of your dreams at the salon without realizing it’s filled with harsh chemicals. Natural alternatives do exist. “Safe” polishes are broken down into categories from “three-free” to “ten-free”, referring to the number of chemicals they are free from.

So, which additives should you make sure are not included?

The top three you should steer clear from are formaldehyde, toluene, and dibutyl phthalate.

Formaldehyde: This chemical is commonly used in the embalming process and can cause skin irritation and negatively impact the nervous and immune system.

Toluene: Extended exposure to the chemical Toluene can lead to headaches, dizziness, and, in severe cases, more serious reproductive damage.

Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP): The chemical works to prevent nail polish from becoming brittle but has been proven to impair the hormonal development of male fetuses and in some cases cause early-onset menopause.

Five-free polishes are created without formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, plus camphor or formaldehyde resin.

Camphor: Recently Camphor has been shown to cause severe skin reactions and when inhaled can cause nausea, dizziness, and headaches.

Formaldehyde resin: Formaldehyde resin is not directly linked to cancer like formaldehyde but it has been noted to cause dermatitis in patients.

Seven-free polishes are created without the five chemicals, plus xylene and triphenyl phosphate.

Xylene: Negative effects can cause dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.

Triphenyl phosphate: The chemical can wreak havoc on your hormones and is potentially toxic to liver cells.

Eight-free formulas are free from the additional chemicals ethyl tosylamide and triphenyl phosphate.

Ethyl tosylamide: This chemical can cause severe allergic reactions and in extreme cases cause liver damage.

[butter LONDON] eight-free [nail] features an array of glossy finish polishes that last for up to ten days.”
