NYFW beauty trends

This year’s New York Fashion Week showed makeup looks that were reflective of natural beauty. And while slicked back hair and dewy “glass” skin are all well and good, they aren’t as exciting as the more outrageous looks spotted on the runway. As lovers of all things beauty, we’re always looking for the next big NYFW beauty trends to try.

NYFW featured many bright colors, not just in fashion, but also in beauty. Painted over eyelids and drawn across lips, many celebrities decided to go for the “bright and bold” look despite the humidity of New York City. Scroll through some of the top beauty looks from NYFW, fresh from the front rows and runways. Celebrities may have hired professional makeup artists to paint their faces for them, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try these NYFW beauty trends at home.

NYFW Beauty Trends: Hot pink eyes

NYFW beauty trends

Fierce and feminine, hot pink eyeshadow is a great way to draw attention to the eyes. Celebrities like Aimee Song paired their fashionable pieces with stunning hot pink eyeshadow. With this look, you don’t have to blend several colors. One hot pink shade is stunning enough to make people stop and stare.

NYFW Beauty Trends: Bottom Liner

NYFW beauty trends

The traditional eyeliner looks great, but it isn’t as creative. Forget the usual cat eye or colored liner, one of the greatest NYFW beauty trends is bottom liner. All you have to do is line the bottom of the eye with bold, black eyeliner or shadow. It instantly transforms your look into something sleek, high-fashion and runway-ready.

NYFW Beauty Trends: Colored Liner

If bright eyeshadow isn’t your thing, then you may want to try colored liner. With this look, you won’t have to worry about picking the right shades that blend together, because you only need to use one eyeliner. You can line both the top and bottom of the eye to make it more dramatic. Depending on how intense you want the look to be, vary the strength of the liner as well as its tail. A cat eye-like colored eyeliner is great for vibrant looks.

NYFW Beauty Trends: Angelic Look

Angelic doesn’t necessarily mean you have to wear a halo and rock feathered wings. One of the NYFW Beauty Trends was all about rosy cheeks and nude lips. This simple look is absolutely angelic and luminous. To get the look, find shimmery makeup like rose or gold highlighter and shimmer powders. Eyeshadow should be kept to a minimal as you keep a “natural” look. Focus on the glow of your skin and the pale pinkness of your pout.

Highlighters are a tricky thing. Find the best highlighter for your skin type here.

NYFW Beauty Trends: Black Lipstick

NYFW beauty trends

Black lipstick isn’t just reserved for Halloween or gothic themed parties. The New York Fashion Week showed that black lipstick can be worn all year round. When you’re putting on black lipstick, be sure that you draw right on the lips. Stay within the lines! If you struggle with finding where your lips end, you might want to check out lip contouring.

Lip contouring uses permanent ink to define your natural lip line. This gives the illusion of a bigger, bolder lip, and definitely helps if you want to fill in your lip without going overboard!

biggest 2019 eyebrow trend

It’s only less than four months until 2019, which means it’s time to start looking at what next year’s biggest beauty trends are going to be.

InStyle magazine already has a forecast for what the biggest 2019 eyebrow trend is, and we’re bringing you the best ways to get the new year’s upcoming hottest trend, today.

We’ve gone through the 90s’ stick-thin eyebrows, Cara Delevingne’s thick, bushy eyebrows, and the extremely polished Instagram eyebrows. What do you think is next for our arches?

Drumroll, please…

Get ready for…contoured eyebrows

That’s right: contouring is not just for your chiseled cheeks. Eyebrow contouring is the biggest 2019 eyebrow trend. Hannah Mutze, Benefit Cosmetics’ National Brow Artist, told InStyle Australia,

“This look is a paired back take on the OTT Instagram Brow—and is all about clean edges, accentuated arches and tapered tails. The clue is in the name, as this brow works to lift, frame and contour your facial features!

“Think eye brightening, nose-slimming and facelifting! I love this look as it flatters faces of all shapes, sizes and ages.”

The beauty industry has long anticipated this trend. Benefit Cosmetics earlier released a four-in-one defining and highlighting brow product that has everything you need to contour your arches.

Jared Bailey, Benefit’s Global Brow Expert, told Bustle that the product’s goal is to make the ideal eyebrows easily accessible to anyone who wants to achieve them.

“As brows have really become a fundamental step in everyday beauty, the attention to detail has become more and more refined,” he said. “To achieve those aspirational brows that you see online, in print, on social media, or even on the streets, you have to use multiple products in multiple shades.”

“And unless you’re a makeup artist or a brow pro, it can be really difficult (not to mention expensive) to grab the right products, in the correct shades, etc.,” he added. “We created four products to help fill, shape, define, and highlight the brow and put them all into one [pencil].”

Wondering how to rock the contoured brow look? Here’s a guide:

The quick and easy way to get contoured eyebrows

Eyebrow makeup is the quickest route to getting contoured eyebrows. And it’s easy, too! There are only four steps involved in getting 2019-ready brows:

  1. Apply color to your brows in a gradient or ombre style, meaning lighter colors at the base of the brow and darker colors towards the tail.
  2. Taper your eyebrow tail into a neat point to ensure that your brow looks neat and polished.
  3. Define the edges of your eyebrows to make them look clean.
  4. Highlight your brow bone to give brighten your eye area. Swipe your highlighter underneath your brow area and blend well.

Getting contoured eyebrows that last

If you’re looking for brows that can last you years instead of hours, look no farther than eyebrow microblading. With zero downtime, zero side effects, and a hundred percent compatibility with all skin types, microblading is an effective and convenient way to contour your arches.

All you need to do is take three easy steps:

  1. Take this quick and easy quiz to find out what color your eyebrows should be.
  2. Schedule an appointment with our microblading artists to get a consultation.
  3. Spend no more than an hour at our clinic, and get the eyebrows you’ve always dreamed of!

kylie jenner lip talk

“I was super insecure about my lips. I really wanted the illusion of bigger lips, so I overlined mine like crazy, and then people started getting obsessed.”

…and so summarizes the world’s fascination with reality star and business mogul Kylie Jenner and her lips.

The 21-year-old gave a tell-all interview with GLAMOUR UK in their September 2018 issue. Jenner also graces the magazine with three different looks for three different covers.

Check out all three covers of the ‘Keeping Up with the Kardashians’ star below.

Jenner is as famous for her widely successful makeup line ‘Kylie Cosmetics’ as she is for her plump, eye-catching lips. However, the mom to 7-month-old Stormi Webster recently admitted to getting rid of her lip fillers.

Fans have speculated that the new mom is avoiding the possibly harmful effects of silicon fillers.

Jenner herself has yet to reveal why she took her fillers out, but she did open up about the other ways motherhood has affected her life.

“Pregnancy completely changed my body at a super young age. But I really don’t care,” Jenner confided.

“I work hard for Stormi and being able to pass Kylie Cosmetics onto her–if she is interested–would be such a cool thing to do,” Jenner added.

“The business has given me a purpose. I love to work, as Mom has installed such a great work ethic in all of us. If I didn’t have that, I don’t know what I would do. I get to create, it exercises my mind, and I am always thinking of how to make the formulas or develop new products,” she added.

The fallbacks of fame: Thick skins and transcience

Of course, being a reality star and a future candidate to be the world’s youngest billionaire comes with its own set of headaches.

“So many negative things come at me all the time. Of course, it does affect me, but you develop a thick skin. Nothing has lasted so long that I haven’t gotten through it, so whenever a new bad story or rumor emerges, I know it will pass, too,” Jenner said.

“Everything in life is transient,” she added.

True enough, there’s no stopping the social media phenomenon. Kylie Cosmetics recently launched eyeshadow singles, which allows makeup enthusiasts to customize their own eyeshadow palettes.

“Favorite shades from previously sold-out and limited edition collections, as well as must-haves from existing palettes” will be released as singles, according to the official Instagram page of Kylie Cosmetics.

Get the look: Lips contoured to the perfection

Whether or not you’re a Kylie fan, you have to admit: the girl’s got her makeup game down to an art.

If you’re part of the thousands of people who contour their lips every day to achieve Instagram-worthy lips, then it’s time to look at a more serious solution: permanent makeup.

Why waste hours upon hours lining your lips? With permanent makeup, all you need to do is sit back and relax for an hour, and microblading artists will do the contouring for you.

The best part? They last up to five years and they’re 100% safe and 100% organic.

Singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani was spotted by Hollywood Life with what looks like plumper lips than usual. Did Gwen Stefani get lip fillers done?

The former No Doubt frontwoman was seen on the way to a studio in Los Angeles, California last Sept. 4. with an upper lip that looks significantly plumper than her lower lip. Her lower lip also looked bigger than it usually did. The singer was rocking a yellow plaid outfit with black tights. Stefani was also in her signature polished makeup and a sleek high ponytail.

Of course, it’s highly possible that Stefani found an ingenious way of contouring her lips to make them look extra plump. After all, trends like makeup lip contouring, whether temporary or permanent, is the most convenient way to getting fuller-looking lips.

Gwen Stefani rose to fame as the lead singer of ska band No Doubt. She debuted a solo album in 2004 titled “Love. Angel. Music. Baby.” She also released her clothing line in the same year. Her second album, “The Sweet Escape”, peaked in the top 10 charts in the US and UK.

The 48-year-old has long been speculated to have had some plastic surgery done. One thing’s for sure: whether or not Gwen Stefani went under the knife, doctors agree that she looks fantastic.

“Gwen appears to have done Botox,” Michael Salzhauer told Radar Online in 2016. “But she’s also had her already luscious lips plumped up to perfection. Aside from that, she’s just most likely had a series of chemical peels. She looks great.”

Getting plumper lips with lip contouring

Lip contouring brings the plump-lips effect of lip fillers but without the harmful silicon injections. Perfect for health-conscious and pregnant women, lip contouring is the best alternative to lip fillers in the industry. The best part? They last much, much longer than lip fillers do.

Not only that—lip contouring is longer-lasting. It can also balance uneven lips, correct uneven lip colors, and even create a stunning ombre lip.

In fact, at Organic Permanent Makeup, we take it one step further: our clinic offers 100% natural and organic lip contouring.

That’s right—getting your lips contoured at OPM means you will experience zero side effects. This also means anyone can get their lips done at OPM; the pigment we use is compatible with all kinds of skin types.

Getting your lips contoured also lets you choose the colors of your lips. Want a ruby red look? You got it. Looking for a beautiful dust rose? No problem. OPM not only believes that you get to define “beautiful”; we also make sure that you do.

Lip contouring at OPM only takes 40 to 50 minutes of your time and has zero down time. You can get your lips contoured during your lunch break and be back at the office, stat!

Say goodbye to lip liners; get your lips contoured once (plus the annual retouching) and you need not worry about getting out the house with pale- and thin-looking lips!

Book an appointment today, and get the lips of your dreams.

Get bigger lips with lip contouring

A long time ago, Kylie Jenner changed the beauty world forever by deciding that full, bigger lips were in. Suddenly, lots of people, including celebrities and influencers, wanted to have bigger lips. Though Kylie got her luscious lips by using lip fillers, luckily the beauty industry has several products that can help you achieve the perfect pout without that expensive procedure.

Whether you want bigger lips like Kylie (she still has a great pout even after ditching her lip fillers) or if you just want more volume to your thin lips, these tips will do the trick. And, if you want to go even further, check out OPM’s lip contouring procedure below.

Get rid of flaky lips

One way to get bigger lips is to create an illusion. Flaky lips reflect less light, which makes your lips look thinner. Get rid of flakes by brushing your lips with a toothbrush, or by using a lip scrub that moisturizes your pout. Scrubbing or brushing your lips increases the circulation in them.

Cover your lips to get bigger lips

Using concealer or foundation, cover your lips starting from the lip line. This creates a canvas that can better show the pigment of your lipstick, as well as make it seem like you have bigger lips.

Use lip gloss

Choose a lip gloss (non-sparkly, please!) that’s close to the color of your lipstick. Dab it in the middle of both of your lips. As we mentioned before, lips that pick up light make your pout look bigger. Get ready to start blowing air kisses!

Overdraw the lipline

Even though Kylie’s lips are already plump, she still uses lip liners to make them look even fuller. Find a lip liner that’s the same shade as your lipstick. Draw slightly outside your natural lip line to make it look like you have bigger lips.  Then, fill in the rest of your lips with the matching lipstick. Clean up the edges using concealer for a defined look.

Use light lipsticks

There’s a reason why nude lipsticks are so popular. Unlike dark lipsticks, which actually make your pout look smaller, a nude or pale pink lip can make your lips look naturally bigger.

Find the best nude lipstick for you with this list of 10 Best Nude Lipsticks of 2018.

Highlight your cupid’s bow

The trick really lies in the lighting. Using a concealer that’s lighter than your shade, or using highlighter, take a small amount and dab it on your cupid’s bow. This creates the illusion of having a more pronounced pout.

Use lip plumpers

Some lip glosses contain lip-plumping ingredients like spearmint and cinnamon. They only give you a temporary plumping effect, but if you just want bigger lips so you can take selfies for a few hours, then lip plumpers are for you.

Lip contouring

Why settle for temporary big lips when you can have bigger lips all the time? While lip fillers often look overdone and unnatural, lip contouring gives you bigger lips without looking clownlike. The edges of the lips are traced using permanent lip liner, and lasts up to five years. Having contoured lips defines your natural lip shape, making them look bigger and fuller, since it’s like you already have lip liner on!

Schedule an appointment with OPM today to get bigger lips like you’ve always wanted!

hairy lips

Yes, hairy lips. 2018 is the year to go all-natural, after all, and beauty trends are no exception. People are finally embracing going green for good, from vegan diets to living a plastic-free, zero-waste lifestyle. Is it any wonder that the beauty industry is going organic, as well?

Enter M.A.C. cosmetics’ recent Instagram post that, predictably, sparked both overwhelmingly positive and negative feedback from its users. The reason?

The model’s hairy lips.

A repost of makeup artist Matthew King‘s Instagram post, the photo is a close up of M.A.C.’s iconic Ruby Woo lipstick and a lip pencil in the shade Chestnut. A few strands of upper lip hair are visible in the photo, leading to comments from Instagram users such as “What’s up with the moustache?” and “Upper lip hair showing too much ?.”

Other comments praised the brand for posting a realistic photo. One user commented, “Thank you for not photoshopping the hairs out ❤️ It’s nice to show the true face once in a while. Because the reality is more women deal with facial hair than those that don’t! Thank you @maccosmetics for keeping it ?!!”

We get the strong reactions. It’s not often you see little “imperfections” like upper lip hair on high-end brands’ advertisements or social media posts. For some, it may be surprising; for others, refreshing.

Still, hairy lips shouldn’t be an issue. Everyone has upper lip hair. In fact, every woman has had to deal with waxing or shaving or plucking their upper lip hair.

Most likely, on busy days, they’ve also had to forego the hair removal completely and just put on makeup despite the visible hairs.

This comment debate harks back to an earlier post, this time by M.A.C. Cosmetics U.K. In the photo, tiny lower lip hairs are visible.

“This stuff is totally normal and barely noticeable. I’m glad they’re showing it,” commented one user.

“This really does mean a lot to a lot of us women. No one ever leaves natural facial hair on makeup models,” says another. “That’s why I felt so super self-conscious about my little mustache hairs when I was younger. If all you’re seeing are completely hairless women, you’re going to believe that that and only that is considered “normal”, “acceptable”, or “beautiful”.

“Keep showing young women that we’re all beautiful,” she added.

Will we be seeing more hairy lips from now on?

Are hairy lips going to become trendy? At the very least, they should be accepted.

There’s nothing wrong with not wanting to strip your skin of its natural protection. Whether or not M.A.C. commits to showcasing the hairy lips look, these two posts were enough to spark debate and maybe raise tolerance for going all-natural.

Trends like organic lip microblading, organic lip tints, and even organic makeup are already taking the beauty industry by storm. What’s one step further?

Heck, even Kylie Jenner ditched her lip fillers (at least, for a while). Maybe it’s time to put the tweezers down for a day or two, as well.

Learn more about what it means to embrace organic beauty. Organic Permanent Makeup is the only clinic that provides 100% all-natural, safe, and effective permanent makeup solutions, such as lip contouring and eyebrow microblading.

In a move that surprised many fans and non-fans alike, billionaire businesswoman Kylie Jenner has ditched the lip fillers that helped launch her widely successful makeup line, Kylie Cosmetics.

The reality star posted photos on Instagram in July that got her followers scratching their heads, trying to figure out why Kylie looked…different. It was only when Kylie herself replied to a comment that the difference became clear.

“She looks like the old Kylie here idk why,” wrote one of Kylie’s followers. The star herself commented back. Kylie wrote, “I got rid of all my filler”—complete with a couple of ‘shocked face’ emojis.

Kylie previously admitted to being insecure about her lips. She also relayed how that insecurity helped her start her makeup line.

“I was insecure about my lips, and lipstick is what helped me feel confident,” Kylie told her sister Kim Kardashian in an interview for the Evening Standard. “I feel like people could see that it’s authentic to me, and it was organic, and it just worked!”

Kylie Cosmetics is famous for its line of lip kits, which are notoriously impossible to buy—because they get sold out in a matter of seconds.

Can you get rid of lip fillers?

It’s unclear if the 20-year-old let her lip fillers dissolve naturally or if she had them removed.

“While hyaluronic acid (the ingredient in lip fillers, which lasts about 6 months) naturally dissolves overtime as your body metabolizes it, it is also reversible,” Dr. David Shafer told Elite Daily.

“An injectable enzyme called hyaluronidase can ‘melt’ the filler almost instantly,” the New York-based plastic surgeon added.

This is good news for anyone who’s been wanting to make the switch from lip fillers to a more natural and authentic look.

Lip fillers may look great, but they need to be re-injected every six months, like Dr. Shafer said. While that works great for stars like Kylie and the rest of the KarJenner family, it might not be practical for everyone else.

So, why should you ditch your lip fillers, and what’s a good alternative?

Permanent lip contour is better than lip fillers

Lip fillers don’t do more than make your lips plumper. They’re also very quick to dissolve. What if there was a way to get fuller-looking lips in a gorgeous color? And what if it lasted up to five years?

Sounds better? Well, that’s exactly what lip contouring does for you.

Lip contouring has a ton of possibilities: it can create fuller-looking lips, balance uneven lips, correct uneven lip colors, and even create a stunning ombre lip.

The procedure only takes 40 to 60 minutes at the hands of our lip contour experts. It’s safe, gorgeous, and—best of all—it’s all natural.

That’s right; Organic Permanent Makeup is the only US brand whose lip contouring pigments are 100% organic. Not only are our pigments allergy-free, they also last longer than inorganic pigments and are compatible with all skin types.

Getting full lips is as easy as booking an appointment, consulting with our contour artists, and waiting 60 minutes to get the lips of your dreams!

Fifty-year-old Karine Barry was a huge fan of lip liners and permanent tattoos. In fact, she started getting semi-permanent lip tattoos in her 20’s—that’s around 30 years of lip tattoos! But, one day, she decided she wanted something more than permanent. And that was when she went on a trip that, unbeknownst to her, would end with a lip tattoo gone wrong.

“Semi-permanent tattoos always disappear very quickly on me so I went overseas in the hope of getting a permanent tattoo,” Karine of Victoria, Australia told news.com.au.

“My parents live in Tahiti, and Polynesians are normally the best tattooists in the world. They’re brilliant, so that’s why I chose Tahiti,” she explained.

It was supposed to be an experience of a lifetime—but in a good way. Instead, when her chosen tattoo artist started explaining the lip tattoo process, Karine became unsure.

Blue + green = red?

“He started mixing blues and greens and a little bit of pink. He told me it was going to come up green, but [that] it would turn burgundy eventually,” Karine said.

Karine trusted her tattoo artist, however, and let him proceed with the tattoo. $250 dollars and thirty minutes later, Karine had green-lined lips.

“My son refused to sit next to me on the plane home,” she confided to New Idea.

Lip tattoo gone wrong

“Back home, as a receptionist I was the face of a big company,” she continued. “I kept reassuring my boss the green around my lips would fade, but three months later, it was actually greener as the pigment had settled into my skin.”

A permanent solution to a permanent disaster

Despite lathering on lipstick, Karine’s lip liner was still very visible.

Fortunately, one of her friends recommended a laser dermatology clinic, and Karine made an appointment.

“They couldn’t promise good results as it was a foreign ink, with a color that is the most difficult to shift and in an area they hadn’t treated before,” she said. “I was a guinea pig, but I didn’t have much choice.”

This time, however, her appointment was a success. After just one session, the dermatologists were able to remove her entire bottom lip liner. The rest came off after three additional sessions.

“My boss is happy, my son is okay to be seen with me again, and I’m relieved I don’t have to look like that for the rest of my life,” Karine said.

Lesson learned: How to avoid instances of lip tattoo gone wrong

Karine isn’t the only victim of botched permanent makeup procedures. A few minutes of your day, however, can solve this issue before it even pops up.

Karine herself admitted it: she hadn’t done any research on her tattoo artist. If she had, she might have completely avoided her lip tattoo gone wrong moment.

Is permanent makeup safe or are we all destined for a lip tattoo gone wrong?

All beauty procedures can be dangerous in the hands of non-professionals. When attempting any beauty procedure—whether it’s a manicure, a haircut, a nose lift, or a tummy tuck—always seek out those who were trained on performing your chosen procedure.

The same goes for permanent makeup. Make sure to:

  • conduct research on several clinics before choosing;
  • inquire if they are qualified to perform your desired procedure; and
  • go over customer reviews about similar, if not the exact same, procedure.

If you want to minimize as much risk as possible, avoid attempting beauty procedures that involve harsh chemicals. Not only are they harmful and unhealthy, they’re also much more difficult to deal with in case you want or need to modify your permanent makeup.

Organic Permanent Makeup (OPM) is the only location that offers organic and permanent makeup services, including lip microblading, eyebrow microblading, permanent eyeliners, scalp micropigmentation, and tattoo removal and correction.

OPM provides a safe and comfortable facility for all your eyebrow needs and houses a team of rigorously trained beauty experts. In fact, our beauty experts conduct training sessions of their own at the OPM Academy.

Don’t settle for less. When it comes to beauty, nothing beats best.
