The end of the year is in sight and all we want to do right now is curl up with Christmas films and chocolate.
Before you go into hibernation though, there’s no time like the present to start prepping your beauty arsenal for the new year. And according to Pinterest, who have the 411 on all the major trends of 2019, there’s plenty of quirky beauty looks ahead.
The company have just released their forecast of the biggest makeup, nails, skincare and hair trends of 2019, based on the data of 250 million pinners from across the world.
Among the trends making the top spot on the Pinterest 100 list are grey hair, almond-shaped nails and baby bangs, which we predict will be ALL over our Insta feeds before you can say ‘balayage‘.
Curious to see what else made the list? Read on to find out the top beauty trends for 2019.
Hooray for grey: People are growing out their natural grey hair and letting that silver shine through.
Big bang theory: The next big thing in fringes? Baby bangs. In 2019, the just-above-brow crop is making the cut.

Just like magic: It may sound like sorcery, but old-school witch hazel is gaining popularity as a skincare solution.
Go glossy: Gloss is helping make people’s best features shine – from lips to lids.
The standout pout: Smart mouths everywhere are pairing barely there makeup with a bold red kisser for added attention.
Almond joy: Here’s a nutty new manicure trend: almond nails, named for the rounded shape of the nut.
The next exfoliant: People are lathering up with gentle liquid exfoliators for brighter, smoother skin.
