Life demands constant evolution and similarly certain trends fade while some come back strong and some of them stay regardless of time and era. We at HTV are obsessed with all things beauty and always trying out new trends while making sure we are aware of what’s in and what’s out. We take a look at trends that will rule 2019 and those you might want to stay away from.

Grey is the new black

The concept age is just a number is finally being embraced which not only means people will be opting for silver shades but will also be comfortable embracing their natural greys also. According to Harper’s Bazaar and Redken’s global creative colour director, “Work with a colourist to try to get the hairline as light as your natural grey. If the eye sees the lightest colour against the face it will give the appearance of being totally grey.”

The infamous red pout

beauty trendsPouts are meant to be flaunted and 2019 will be the year where you will get to see that classic Marilyn Monroe inspired deep red pout. This trend is a classic but this year it will be all about that dewy look paired with a signature red for that stand-out factor.

Go Glossy or Go Home

Beating the matte trend, glossy lips are back in action and we won’t say we dislike it. In terms of color palette, there will be more plums and browns rather than your usual pinks and nudes. We’re all for this change.

Lilac for the win

2019 will be all about revolutionizing the norms and the year to flaunt edgy hues. Lilac hair will be a normal sight with blunt bobs and moreover, rainbow shades will be taking over, inspiring people to embrace individuality.

Flutter em Eye lashes

Give your eyes definition by opting for natural eye-lash lifting solutions. You can go to a spa or go all-natural in your approach by using castor oil, grapeseed oil or aloe vera. Let your eyes do the talking (literally) this year!

High end beauty products (as much as they’re worth having) can burn a gigantic hole in your pocket with sky-rocketing prices and not to mention their near impossible availability at times. This is when drugstore, over the counter products can come in handy and at times go a long way in terms of results. Here are 5 makeup products we can’t help splurging on because of their decent quality as well as quirky packaging. 

   Maybelline Eye liner gel

It’s been quite a few years since this product was launched but boy does it deliver! It is long lasting and perfect for everyday use without an exaggerated liner look. Needless to say, we’re ready to splurge on this product whenever we can’t afford high-end liners.

   Maybelline Colossal Kajal

If you work and happen to love eye makeup – this is your best bet because this one really allows you to play with your looks without going overboard. Whether it’s the kohled look you look or a winged look, both can be easily executed with this product. Definitely a must-have for your everyday makeup bag.

   Luscious Brow Luxe Tinted Brow Gel

Bushy brows can go a long way if done right and this product can deliver if you use it right.  It tames, sculpts and gives definition to your brows with a light tint. It is particularly great for filling gaps in your brows and making them look fuller.

   Massarat Misbah – Silk Foundation

This foundation is goals if you don’t have much left to splurge on regular makeup requirements. It is a tried and tested product for something that is long lasting and buildable. Not only is it good for everyday use but it can also be used for much needed heavy coverage at times.

   Medora Lipsticks

When things get a bit out of control and more importantly when your finances get out of hands, the wise thing to do is to hunt for affordable products and deliver also. Medora is one local drugstore brand you can totally depend on for matte and buildable lipsticks. They may not be the most long lasting but great for everyday use and they have a huge color palette suitable for every skin tone.

Do you have any personal favorites, comment below to share!

2018 brought with it a myriad of new trends – some were cool while some became downright boring over the period of time and according to us should die before the new year starts. We round up a list of trends that are done to death and should not come back any time soon.

     1. Long A*# Weddings:

2018 was the year of matrimonial bliss that lasted a little too long. DeepVeer, NickYanka and Ambani weddings are just some of the examples. While this trend is nothing new and may vary from person to person (hello capitalism!), we’d like it to go now.

Simple weddings should come back with minimalistic approach – not only because we’d like it to be that way but because it would lessen the social pressure of having a grand wedding to come across as a normal person in the society.

     2. Matte lips

For the sake of novelty, this one needs to go as well. Matte lips started trending in 2017 and since then have dominated the makeup arena. We’re not implying glossy lips should come back either but rather your normal hydrating lipsticks in plum and other statement colors.

3.       Princess-y Long trail dresses

Hey hey! No offense but the whole princess look with long trail dresses needs to go! We’re hoping 2019 will bring structured silhouettes and tapered cuts.

4.   Slick back hair buns 

Many believe it to be a classic hairstyle that can never go out of style but hey, it’s about time we give other fun and edgy hairstyles a try. Prime examples of this overdone style are Deepika Padukone who went for it on almost all her wedding events and Aimen Muneeb on her wedding – total case of catastrophic hair.

5.       Athleisure

It’s hip and cool but way overdone, so much so we’re bored the minute we see an athleisure look now! It started in 2017 and is still very much trending but now is the time to shut your closet doors to it.

6.       Lobs

Another hairstyle we’ve grown sick of! It’s trendy and all but needs to be reinvented and rather people should go for actual pixie cuts or actual bobs.

 

7.       Dollar hike

One trend we’re all praying hard for to go away and never come back for years to come. Since the Khan era started, Dollar is kissing the sky and ruling it. We’re so not happy and would like this trend to never even exist in the first place.

8.       Furry Footwear

The only place fur looks good is on furry animals, and we’d like it to stay there for now! We don’t even want synthetic fur in sight, we’re that bored of it. Needless to say, those fluffy furry slides need to go.

9.   Shellac Nails

Matte lip is one thing but gel/shellac nails are also boring us to death now. We’re hoping the new year will bring classic French manicures and basic polish back in trend.

10. Late or Cancelled TV Shows

      We’re sick of waiting for the new season of our fave show or waiting endlessly only to find out they’ve been cancelled. Happened to us when recently Daredevil was cancelled and then of course the never ending wait for Game of Thrones new and final season. We don’t like the wait and abrupt axing of shows!

Just when you think the biggest Indian weddings are now over, in comes another event. Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas hosted their Mumbai reception for Bollywood recently even though they tied the knot right in the beginning of December. All the glitz and glamour aside, what really stayed with us through this whole thing were the hilarious tweets regarding all three weddings of the year. You already know which ones we’re referring to, right?

The following tweets are our personal favourites:

1. This hilarious dig at Salman Khan being a background dancer at the #AmbaniWedding

Because let’s face it, if you’re rich then even Salman Khan will let you have the stage.
