James Vincent Shares His Spring Beauty Trends for 2019
Spring 2019 is an exciting season for beauty. From jewel toned eye makeup taking center stage at Versace, to red lips pouting perfectly from Paris, NYC and London and the love of all that is gilded and glittery, there are so many ways to bring your individual beauty style into Spring and Summer 2019.
Hot, Hot, Heat
It is a long and hot summer this season as runways and red carpets showed us sun-kissed skin and a gorgeous glow. Warm tones are perfect for giving some summer radiance and the summery look was all the rage, ranging from a hint of bronzer to a golden tan. Prabal Gurung, Alberta Ferretti and Michael Kors and Chanel are just a few of the fashion legends leading us to beachy beauty. Danessa Myricks Beauty Oil brings a sensual radiance to the skin with actual gold leaf. Melanie Mills Hollywood gives you gorgeous gleam from head to toe in shades from Rose Gold to Bronze and lets any makeup wearer look like a summer goddess.
Shimmer and Shine
Glitter has managed to make its way from kids craft projects to fashion in a major way. We saw glitter and shimmer in the form of jewel and foil finishes on the eyes at Giambattista Valli, glitter lips at Jeremy Scott, crystal finish at Valentino and metallic eyes at Versace. Every artist from Val Garland to Pat McGrath are bringing it again this season. Lemonhead at Alcone offers easy to control glitter without the difficult clean up. Shadow palettes like Viseart and MustaeV make it easy to bring jewel tones on to the eyes. For metallics, Mehron Metallic Powder is ideal for real gold and silver touches, try the rose gold for the eyes and lips for an unforgettable look. Stila at Frends beauty gives glitter a fashion forward look for eye and lip with a while collection of jewel tones, glitters and metallics that are perfect for the pro or everyday makeup wearers.
The Year of the Cat
There is not much in makeup that gives such immediate drama as the perfect feline flick. This season sees cat eyes in new colors and more dramatic shapes that allow the wearer to be more individual. Many designers brought dramatic shapes to the runway, but brands like Burberry did it in shades like taupe. Take a look at Danessa Myricks Color Fix or Cushion Color for a large array of color that is also waterproof. Classic houses like Dior showed more artistic flare and finish and many challenged the size and shape of the cat eye. Crown Brush eyeliner pens come in an array of shades and at less than $10 do not break the bank. Kevyn Aucoin at Camera Ready Cosmetics has the most beautiful black liner with a perfect tip for natural or dramatic looks. Kryolan Skin Liner pens come in shades that range from taupe to red and bold blues and allow any person to perfect the cat eye like a pro.
This season it was a truly glowing, natural look. Every day skin care and beauty routines help to bring a gorgeous complexion all summer long. Start by gently exfoliating with Twinmedix Resurface, a non-granular exfoliant that gets rid of all the dry and dead skin. Rebels and Outlaws Potion are the perfect blend of organic Hydrosol and essential oils infused with Crystal to balance your skin PH and your energy. Protect and moisturize with celebrity secrets from brands like Perricone MD and Mario Badescu Skin Care. For coverage, try airbrush with Mineral Air or Kett Cosmetics for a flawless finish that looks natural and lasts through the intense Texas summer. Try Limelife by Alcone One Drop Wonder and Dew Date for skin that has exceptional glow without the grease.
What could be more classic than a bold red lip? Paris Fashion Week embraced pillarbox reds at Givenchy, orange reds and deep, burgundy tones at Moschino, and more. Look to Smashbox Cosmetics and MAKE UP FOR EVER for the largest selection of lip looks. Hollywood favorite Stillazi has lip color in gorgeous sheer textures that allow anyone to dare to wear the red lip they have been longing for.
Bold brows and lush Lashes are here to stay but the hard liner brow and overly black lash of the Instagram set is nowhere in the runway.
Bushy brows took over at runways, ranging from Fendi and Moschino to Jeremy Scott and Michael Kors. Lashes are still going strong at high fashion brands like Chanel, Prada and Tom Ford, but the look is more polished and romantic than the overly exaggerated lash look we have been seeing the last few seasons. Brow pens and pencils are the perfect way to sketch in more natural fuller brows. Try combining a lengthening mascara like Smashbox with a volumizing mascara like Kevyn Aucoin for a lash look that feels customized or add in a wispy lash set from Ardell for a softer look that still has impact.
The Makeup Show NYC will be held Sunday, May 5, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. and Monday, May 6, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 W. 18th Street, NYC. For a complete list schedule of events and scheduled speakers, visit www.themakeupshow.com.
