Spring 2019 will be all about glossy skin
IF THERE was one overarching beauty trend to come off the Spring/Summer 2019 catwalks, it was for dewy skin with a supercharged glow. Proenza Schouler set the tone in New York, where the models sported shiny complexions that were complemented by wet-look hairstyles, making for an extra dewy look. Style icon and designer Alexa Chung picked up the baton in London, sending models down the runway with complexions that were buffed, moisturised and highlighted to shimmering perfection.
Glowing skin was also the focus of the beauty looks at Delpozo, where it was matched with groomed brows, at Hussein Chalayan, matched with vivid lipstick, and at Eudon Choi, where choppy bangs provided contrast. In Milan, the look was softer, with designers opting for a subtler glow.
N.21 put a polished, elegant spin on the natural aesthetic, while plumped, moisturised complexions were the only nod to makeup of any sort at Annakiki. Alberta Ferretti kept things feminine with sun-kissed complexions with a touch of shimmer.
Paris took the approach to extremes, with several designers championing the dazzling complexion. Anton Belinskiy, Giambattista Valli and Stella McCartney all went to town with the highlighter, dabbing it all over the models’ foreheads, cheekbones and under-eye area for a seriously luminous look, while at Alexander McQueen the approach was taken to the next level, with gold-toned highlighter providing a sun-kissed, disco-ready shimmer.
Meanwhile, reality TV star Kylie Jenner, founder of the Kylie Cosmetics beauty brand has registered three trademarks for “Kylie Skin” and “Kylie Skin by Kylie Jenner” with the United States Patent and Trademark Office, as reported by Trademark Ninja.
The trademarks cover products such as skin moisturisers, cleansers, toners, facial scrubs and “skin care preparation products,” as well as serums, masks and body oils. “Retail store services” also form part of the list.
Jenner has yet to confirm whether a skincare venture is actually in the pipeline, but it would be a natural progression for the businesswoman, whose Kylie Cosmetics brand has achieved global success since its launch in 2015 as the purveyor of the label’s signature “Lip Kits.”
The brand has achieved cult status in the space of a few short years, earning Jenner the 27th spot on Forbes’s “America’s Richest Self-Made Women” list, compiled earlier this summer. The list revealed that the star has amassed a US$900 million fortune from her online makeup brand, which now spans products for eyes, lips and face, as well as tools such as makeup brushes.
Jenner would not be the first big star to break into skincare – pop sensation Madonna runs the prestige beauty brand, MDNA Skin, while Paris Hilton unveiled her skincare line, “ProD.N.A.,” earlier this summer. – Relaxnews
