Five Beauty Trends We’re Happy to Say Goodbye to in 2019!

Feather Brows

2018 has been one of the biggest years in living memory for beauty trends. Some of them were amazing game-changers that altered the way we do things forever, and some of them were nothing more than whacky quirks which no-one should really be doing. Today, we thought we’d take a look at five of the worst trends which we’ll be happy to wave goodbye to:

EVERYTHING EYEBROWS

Okay, so we can’t claim that we’re not fans of a neat, slightly bold brow as it does our faces no end of favours in terms of framing. However, people in 2018 took their eyebrow obsessions too far and we saw weird spiky brows, brows which looked like feathers and even brightly coloured brows. We hope that everyone has got it out of their system and 2019 will be the year for sensible, tidy eyebrows!

Fake Freckles

We love freckles, and natural ones look super cute, but using products like fake tan to create freckles over the top of our make-up just seems like waaaay too much effort. We’re hoping that 2019 will be more about embracing what you’ve got, instead of creating fakery, and empowering women to find beauty in their own skin.

Rose Gold Hair

Let’s face it, rose gold has been a favourite for a while now and it’s probably here to stay, but rose gold hair was just a step too far for us. Aside from being unflattering on the vast majority of people, it takes INSANE levels of maintenance to stay looking good, and most of us needed to bleach the life out of our hair first in order to get the colour to take. Next year, we’re staying firmly away whacky hair colours and opting for something a bit more natural!

Insane Nails

2018 seems to have been all about pushing boundaries, and this has been really clear with some of the manicures we’ve seen this year. Everything from hairy nails to nails which look like teeth, and we are SO OVER IT. We’re starting 2019 with a simple French manicure and hope that the rest of the world follows our example.

Yellow Make Up

Everyone from Margot Robbie to Beyonce went crazy for yellow eye looks last summer, and while we’re sure it’s something that celebrities can rock with minimal effort, the rest of us struggled to make it look like anything other than mild jaundice. Unless someone comes up with a way for us non-make-up artists to do yellow eyes without making ourselves look ill, we’re happy to consign it to the archives!

Cooking Christmas Dinner Without Losing Your Cool

Christmas Day is fast approaching, and while that means presents and fun for the younger members of the family, for many of us it means spending hours in the kitchen, slaving over a hot stove. Even if you enjoy cooking, Christmas dinner is enough to get anyone hot and bothered, so we’ve got five suggestions for products which will help to cool and soothe your skin after tackling the turkey.

Elemis Anti-Fatigue Eye Gel

If your eye area is feeling fatigued, you could also be dealing with puffiness and dark circles. Elemis has developed this eye gel to battle the signs of fatigue and instantly refresh and soothe the eye area. The complex of sugar beet extract, yeast and golden root helps to reduce the appearance of tired eyes, whilst British white willow and olivine extract, rich in magnesium,  cools, revitalises and hydrates the eye area.

Dermalogica All Over Toner

Although this range is developed for teenage skin, plenty of us suffer with acne right through our twenties and thirties. This toner s a purifying mist that controls excess oil and helps eliminate breakouts on the face and body with salicylic acid. Twelve gentle botanicals cool, refresh, energise and revive skin.

Elemis Instant Refreshing Gel

Your neck and shoulders are highly susceptible to feeling hot and tense during times of stress (are the Yorkshire Puddings rising properly? Has anyone checked the roasties?!) so keeping some of Elemis’ Instant Refreshing Gel on hand is a good idea. Containing cooling camphor and menthol this instant revitaliser is perfect for tired legs and muscle tension, especially on the shoulders, neck, temples and across the forehead.

Dermalogica Multi-Active Toner

This toner from Dermalogica is an ultra-light toner with moisture-binding humectants that helps condition and prepare the skin for proper moisture absorption. Arnica and cucumber extracts help keep skin smooth and refreshed and help to soothe and cool the skin while reducing redness and irritation.

Elemis Lip Revive

The lips often feel chapped at Christmas, between the heat of the kitchen, sips of Baileys and too many kisses under the mistletoe! Elemis created its Lip Revive from white beeswax and peppermint extract to give the lips a cooling boost as well as soothing dry, chapped, and sore lips.

Getting Ready for Christmas the Pure Beauty Way

Here at Pure Beauty, we like to keep thing simple while making ourselves feel as amazing as possible and Christmas is no exception. However, Christmas is such a busy time of year that our getting ready time is often cut into by all the other things that need doing. However, we’ve managed to get our routine sorted so that we look and feel great for the whole festive period.

The Night Before

This is the period we call “the calm before the storm” when we get five minutes to ourselves before the madness starts. We like to take a bath, using plenty of Elemis Aching Muscle Super Soak, and apply Decleor Deep Cleansing Clarifying Clay Mask so that our skin gets some repairing nourishment. We finish with Decleor Magnolia Youthful Night Balm so that we wake up with soft, luminous skin.

Christmas Morning

This is the time when we like to give ourselves a properly polished look without taking too much time, so multifunctional products are key. Instead of using a separate primer, base and moisturiser, we tend to opt for Decleor BB Cream 24 Hour Hydration SPF15, which gives a wash of moisture, mineral pigmentation and even sun protection, all in one tube. Elemis Rehydrating Ginseng Toner can be used over the top of make-up as a setting spray which will help to revitalise and moisturise skin while keeping your make-up in place all day.

Boxing Day Morning

Once the madness of Christmas Day is over, we like to take some time on Boxing Day for pampering our skin. We start with Elemis Quiet Mind Temple Balm to help to relax and refocus our mind and body. We also like to use Jan Marini Bioglycolic Bioclear Lotion to help to resurface our skin and reveal the new cells beneath. Dry brushing is also a big part of our post-Christmas routine as it not only helps to brush away dry skin cells, it also helps with circulation and reducing bloating. Elemis Body Detox Skin Brush is the perfect thing to use.

Finally, we treat ourselves to Decleor Body Refining Oil Serum, which smooths the skin and helps restore its softness and elasticity. Associated with self-massage gestures, it helps reduce the appearance of orange-peel skin. Immediately, the skin is smoothed and beautified, its texture appears refined.

Look After Your Skin During the Festive Season

This time of year can be hard on your skin. The weather is harsh and cold, central heating dries you out, and there’s way too much drinking and merriment for most of us, all of which can result in a dodgy complexion. We like to take a proactive approach at this time of year and try to meet issues head on, before they become a problem, so we’ve put together five tips which can help you to beat the blemishes this festive season.

Remove Your Make Up

When you’re rolling home at all hours of the night after boozy celebrations, it’s really tempting to fall into bed without taking your make-up off. However, this is a bad idea as not only with you rmake-up clog your pores, you’re also leaving the dirt of the day on your face to do its worst. Keep Decleor Bi-phase Caring Cleanser and Makeup Remover by your bed with some cotton pads as this will clean your face and remove make up with minimal effort.

Moisturise!

As we mentioned above, weather, central heating and festive boozing are all conspiring to dry your skin out so moisturising is more important than ever. Decleor Aromessence Neroli Amara Hydrating Oil Serum is suitable for all skin types and adds a wash of moisture with just a few drops.

Drink Water

One of the best tips we have ever been given is to get yourself a reusable water bottle, fill it with water and leave it by the side of your bed before you go out. This will reduce the need for fumbling around when you get home for a drink and will encourage you to drink throughout the night, as replacing lost hydration is really important for both your skin and your hangover!

Don’t Forget Your Hands

The skin on your hands is very prone to drying out at this time of year, and cracked skin doesn’t go very well with an expensive Christmassy manicure. We swear by Nailtiques Hand Conditioner for re-hydrating and conditioning the hands and cuticles, as the cream softens the skin but not the nails. Keep it in your bag or on your bedside table and try to apply a coating before bed.

ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz…..

We say this pretty much every year, but burning the candle at both ends is always going to have a bad effect on your skin and trying to maintain a good sleep schedule is the best way to avoid breakouts and major skin meltdowns. If you’re short of your eight hours a night, squeeze in a nap where you can so that the skin has plenty of time to repair itself, and use plenty of Elemis BIOTEC Skin Energising Night Cream to bolster healing.
