Pinterest Beauty Predictions for 2016

At the end of each year, social media site Pinterest predicts what the next year will bring when it comes to fashion, beauty lifestyle and more. OROGOLD takes a look at some of the most exciting Pinterest beauty predictions for 2016.

Woman with natural hair

Natural Hair
For those of you who hate spending precious time styling your hair, this Pinterest beauty prediction will make you quite happy. Pinterest predicts that this year will see us all put aside our styling products and tools and embrace our natural hair texture. Whether it be curly, wavy or straight, it is time to let your natural hair shine!

Coffin nails.

Coffin Nails
Coffin nails are an oblong shaped style, resembling the shape of a coffin. While this may seem quite dark, the nails are anything but, looking fierce but sophisticated at the same time. Pinterest saw a massive 4 million coffin-shaped nail ideas being pinned in 2015, and with this showing absolutely no signs of slowing down, it is something we can expect to see much more of in 2016.

Mermaid-Inspired Locks
Tying in well with the natural hair prediction are mermaid-inspired locks, which are all thanks to a new trend called fluid hair painting. This is a new hair dyeing technique, in which the hair is fanned out onto a large surface and painted in large sections, creating a beautiful gradient effect. Subtle pastel shades have been popular in 2015, and we all predict this to continue on throughout this year.

Clean, Androgynous Makeup
While 2015 was the year of contouring and strobing, Pinterest predicts that 2016 will pave the way for simple and androgynous makeup. This will be quite a change from the different beauty looks that we have seen in 2015, and OROGOLD is excited to see how the androgynous makeup trend develops.

Eyebrow grooming

Eyebrow Grooming
There has been quite an emphasis on eyebrow grooming lately, and this is a trend that will definitely continue. If you aren’t blessed with naturally thick brows, OROGOLD suggests trying out some of the many new eyebrow products that have appeared on the market, from gels to powders to pencils, all of which will help to create a bold and natural-looking brow.

Cat eyes

Inspired by Adele
Adele’s signature cat-eyes are almost as distinct as her voice, and Pinterest predicts that we will be seeing this style replicated much more in 2016. There are many different ways to create this look for yourself, and if you truly want to exude an Adele vibe, OROGOLD suggests pairing your cat eyes with nude lips and the singer’s statement blush.

Man having  a manicure

While manicures have always been popular amongst women, it would seem as though more men will be catching onto this beauty secret in 2016. The mani and pedi aimed at men is looking to become much more mainstream, so keep an eye out for it at your local nail salon!

From an exciting new hair dyeing technique bringing us mermaid-inspired locks, to even more of an emphasis being placed on beautifully groomed brows, it seems as though 2016 will be filled with style and sophistication. OROGOLD looks forward to seeing more of these looks as 2016 progresses.

Spring Beauty Trends to Try Now – OROGOLD Reviews

Each new season brings with it fresh new beauty trends, that have made their debut appearance on runways across the world. This spring is no exception, and we have brought together three of the most exciting beauty trends for this season, giving you a whole new dose of makeup inspiration.

Drawing on a serious cat eye

When it comes to cat eyes, there are two directions that you can take; subtle or bold. For a subtle look, which is great for the daytime and even to wear to work, use a liquid or pen eyeliner to draw a line over the top of your eyelid near to your lashes, flicking the line upwards at the corner. Bold cat eyes are also huge this spring, and the graphic look is easy to achieve with the right eyeliner. The method is the same, except that the line you draw needs to be much thicker, and rather than a delicate outward flick, you can go heavy with your line, creating a graphic shape around the outside of your eye. You can also buy thick graphic eyeliners, meaning that you only need to draw the line once rather than multiple times with a standard eyeliner. For those of you with shaky hands, try using a teaspoon as a guide, holding it against your eye and drawing your lines around it.

Pops of Color
Bursts of color around your eyes are a refreshing change from heavy black lids, and are perfect for spring. There are some gorgeous new eyeshadow shades available in yellows and magenta, or you could also use a wet brush to create a colored eyeliner. For a flattering shade that works with every skin tone, try lavender. Blend this over your eyes with a mauve shade for an extra special look. Be sure to keep the rest of your makeup light and minimal, as you want the purple tones to look fresh and cool rather than heavy and overdone.

The Natural Glowing Look
This look has been seen on countless catwalks, and is a step up from the classic natural look. Instead of just focussing on a flawless complexion, the aim of this look is to make it seem as though your skin is luminescent and glowing from within. Keep your skin well moisturised and opt for a light coating of foundation, avoiding multiple layers. Use a highlighter to contour your cheekbones, also applying it around your eyes, to really make them seem bright. Keep your lips nude, either with a nude colored lipstick or a sheer lip gloss. A gold lipstick also works extremely well with this look, as it adds a rich shimmer to your lips whilst keeping them looking natural. To keep your eye makeup subtle, choose eyeshadow colors in shades of bronze, or even better, one with flecks of gold, which will really bring a luxurious sparkle to your face.

It is always fun to experiment with new makeup trends, adjusting certain elements so that they suit your own facial features and skin tone. The most important things to remember are to keep your foundation light, make the most of highlighting and contouring your features, and add bursts of bright color around your eyes, keeping your look fresh and minimalistic.
