How are you doing?
So, Beauteque asked bloggers on instagram to write something about what we think are the top 3 beauty trends for 2015 and I thought, why not, it sounds like fund =D
In case you don't know about beauteque, not only are they an online shop for Korean cosmetics but they also have an instagram with very nice staff on it ^^
1. Hydrogel masks
As most of you may know sheet masks are a staple in a Korean (or Asian) skincare routine and I'm pretty sure most people who have tried them will continue using and loving them.
But wait...there is a new player around now: hydrogel masks. They are believed to be a step-up from the cotton/fiber/pulp sheet masks.
As you can see, the mask has a gel-like texture. They are called hydro-gel because multiple water-soluble ("hydro") layers of ingredients are blended until they form the consistency of a "gel".
Compared to sheet masks made of cotton/fiber/pulp hydrogel masks have the advantage of excellent absorption properties and will contour well the skin.
2. Liquid lipsticks
This trend was already here in Germany in 2014 with various brands releasing a liquid lipstick product. And just in January of this year Etude House released their product named "Color in Liquid Lips".
A liquid lipstick is basically a product that has a glossy texture but highly pigmented. Making the product packaging actually like a normal lipstick seems to be pretty popular with companies.
I have a similar product from a French brand, which I really like. Liquid lipsticks make for a rather bold and statement look but are a lot of fun to wear. I'm looking forward to try out the Korean versions!!
3. Dark lips
The third trend I predict are dark lips. In Korean cosmetics I often encounterd light colors, gradient lips but rarely dark lips.
But I think this is to change (probably half of that thinking is wishful thinking...maybe XD)
Just a few days ago 4minute released their video for "Crazy" in which the girls look they're wearing pretty dark lipstick. And we all know that K-pop and Korean beauty are definitely related.
