Winter Style Guide: Hair Color & Beauty Trends
2019 is here, and just like every new year, we’re using the turning of the calendar as an excuse to shake things up. This winter, we’re redoing our color palette with a whole new group of shades for every personality from the vibrant attention-seekers to the chicest wallflower at the party. This season, draw inspiration from winter’s trending colors: Ultra Violet, Pink Peacock, Rust, and Almond Buff. And since color is about more than just what’s hanging in the closet, we’re recommending hair and beauty looks to warm you up this winter. Look ahead for our seasonal inspiration board, with ideas on how to incorporate each trending color into the first months of 2019, from head to toe.
Ultra Violet has already been trending strong this year, so chances are you’ve spent the past few months working purple into your wardrobe. Now that the color is a fashion staple, it’s time to up the ante with Ultra Violet beauty and hair offerings. Channel your inner goddess with Olia Bold 5.12 in Medium Royal Amethyst. Somehow, this cool burgundy shade makes it possible for a hair choice to be both bold and subtle. It’s best for anyone with natural, uncolored hair between light brown and dark brown.
Complete the royal color scheme with essie nail polish in hazy days, a byzantine purple glazed with warming clay tones that looks like something borrowed from Cleopatra. Add a perfect pink pout with Maybelline’s new Made For All lipstick in Pink-for-Me. Then, create a vibrant smokey eye with the rich purple, pink and brown tones of Maybelline New York Soda Pop Eyeshadow Palette.
This hot pink shade does exactly what peacocks were born to do — draw attention. This head-turning shade will make sure you look chic while you stand out. Choose from two ways to achieve a Pink Peacock-inspired look with Garnier Olia. For those who want a subtle pink reference, Olia 4.15 Dark Soft Mahogany adds cool red tones to a rich base of dark brown. For personality peacocks who want the full pink experience, opt for Garnier Olia Bold 7.20 Dark Rose Quartz. This hair color has intense rose and iridescent reflects, perfect for anyone with natural hair from medium blonde to medium brown.
For a full Pink Peacock look, where else to turn but watermelon? This juicy pink essie watermelon shade will have you dreaming of summer all year long, while matching Maybelline Made for All Lipstick in Fuchsia-for-Me is the perfect pink lip power play. Complete the look while staying just this side of sophisticated with Maybelline Blushed Nudes eyeshadow palette.
The gritty shade of Rust is trending this season, and we can see why. It’s got style, edge, and you can dress it up into a statement shade or down into a neutral. Redheads, blondes, and brunettes alike can style their hair into this of-the-moment shade with Olia 6.43 Light Natural Auburn, for a warm, natural look. The color of a shiny new penny, this copper-meets-gold hair color works for anyone with hair between dark blonde and dark brown. Rust fans can also level up with Olia Bold 7.45 in Intense Fire Ruby, an intense copper and mahogany shade that brings the flames. It’s best for people with natural hair between medium blonde and medium brown.
For a beauty look that that captures the essence of runway rust, we love essie nail polish in seeing stars. The shade has a mahogany brown base, but kicks up the color with golden shimmer. Make it an all-around beauty experience with new Maybelline Made for All lipstick in Spice-for-Me, a satin bronze, then spice up your eyes with the glorious, glow-worthy mattes in Maybelline The Matte Bar Eyeshadow Palette.
The subtlest of 2019’s trending winter shades, Almond Buff is the color of just-toasted almonds. Dress for a festive occasion by pairing Almond Buff with gold, shimmery notes, or take it straight to the workplace with a classic, chic raincoat. Best of all, Almond Buff can translate into both blonde and brunette hair shades. Join the lighter side with Olia 91/2.1 Lightest Ash Blonde, a cool blonde shade designed to lighten and neutralize blonde hair. You can still channel Almond Buff by going dark with Olia 5.03 Neutral Medium Brown, the perfect blend of warm and cool tones for brunettes.
Elevate your beauty look with this cool shade thanks to essie at the barre, a soft, cinnamon color for nude nails with a bit of spice. Add vibrancy with new Maybelline Made for All Lipstick in Mauve-for-Me, the pinky nude perfect for a subtle pop of color. Then complete the look with the cool neutral tones of Maybelline Brooklyn Nudes mini eyeshadow palette.
