Power Up Your Beauty Vibe With These 4 Must-Try Trends

It’s time to try something new.

Whether we’re perusing the latest runway pics or scrolling through TikTok, the inspiration to mix up our everyday makeup look is seemingly endless.

While we love a signature lip shade or a go-to glam we can (almost) do with our eyes closed, sometimes we want to stray from the norm and try something new for our next night out.

From face gems and wet-look skin to carefree, lived-in liner, we’ve summed up the four biggest beauty trends of the moment.

All About Embellishments

This trend is all about ringing in the bling. Heavily influenced by the shimmering, maximalist makeup looks in Euphoria, rhinestones have made their red-carpet return.

Whether it’s a high-impact, head-turning look like Doja Cat’s full face of red rhinestones at Schiaparelli’s Paris Week Fashion Show, or Jodie-Turner Smith’s faux freckles on the BAFTAs red carpet, it’s about taking the progressive and experimental gem placements usually reserved for music festivals and bringing them into the world of everyday fashion.

Want to start small? Dot a few rhinestones on the outer corners of your eyes, or follow your natural crease line to take add a hint of dimension to your liner.

Wet Look Makeup

We’ve heard of wet look hair, and now the “fresh from the shower” look is extending to our faces. Say goodbye to matte makeup and embrace illuminating and glow-inducing products, like light-reflecting foundation and liquid highlighters.

Of course, the perfect base starts with skin that is radiant all on its own. Part of the next generation of serums, Dr. LeWinn’s Renew Serum combines encapsulated retinol and Beauactive for results that are five times more powerful than retinol alone*.

The encapsulation technology enhances the penetration of retinol (which increases cell turnover to help treat and target common skincare concerns), without irritation, and visibly reduces lines and wrinkles, while renewing the complexion. Beauactive boosts collagen, and Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, moisturises and nourishes the sin for a healthy-looking complexion, sans makeup.

For an added touch of radiance, blend the Renew serum into your foundation for an illuminating effect, or apply to high points on your cheeks, nose and brows after applying makeup for an Insta-worthy glow.

Neutral Nails

If glazed-donut nails were the standout trend of 2022, then 2023 is definitely the year of the “milky manicure”.

While nude nails have long been an it-girl staple, right now it’s all about sheer washes of white and cream when it comes to natural-looking nails.

A favourite of the likes of Nicola Peltz Beckham, Jennifer Lopez and Elle Ferguson, this go-with-anything look is perfectly achievable from home, leaving room for you to experiment with bold, bright colour elsewhere in your style.

Grungy Glam

Blame it on the hotly anticipated book-to-TV adaption of Daisy Jones And The Six, but right now, gritty, rock-and-roll inspired glam is dominating our feeds.

Think lived-in liner and “didn’t sleep last night” shadow that’s smudged in all the right places, complemented by heavy mascara in natural tones of black and dark brown.

The best part of this trend? It’s designed to be “too cool for school”, so the less perfect and polished, the better.

For the ultimate frontwoman feeling, finish with messy, textured waves and a nude, glossy lip.
