The Zoe Report talks to makeup king, Kristofer Buckle to get the 10 new makeup trends for 2019 that are easy to embrace.
Kristofer Buckle tells The Zoe Report, “The looks on the runways are very diverse, and ultimately being that we're in a time of individual expression and empowerment, they'll all be seen in one manifestation or another on the streets."
Kristofer explains that, "Every time there's an extreme trend such as super-matte lips, the pendulum swings in the polar opposite direction. So now, glossy lips are back and the trend will stay — because it will take a while for everyone's lips to rehydrate after the dry, chalky lip trend that we've endured." The KB Luxury Lip Gloss is the perfect step in the right direction if you’re looking to get with the 2019 lip trend before it’s too late.
Contouring, a Kristofer Buckle speciality is here to stay. He comments, "People tend to abuse fun, new techniques, so we end up having people walking around over-highlighted and looking like the Tin Man — or, their contour looks like they're in the production of Cats. These are useful illusions, but we will see them being used with more subtlety because it isn't magic if you can see the trick."
If you’re into contouring, meet your new best friend, the Exposure Matte Warming Power.
It’s never too late for a 2019 glow up! Throwing a little KB Light Enhancing Duo can make a world of difference to your makeup and make your cheekbones really pop!
Shimmer, Not Glitter
Full on glitter can be over the top and obnoxious, but a light and shimmery glitter can be absolutely stunning. For a subtle glitter moment check out the KB Premiere Palette.
Blotted Velvet Lips
Smooth "blotted velvet" is another comfy lipstick texture that Buckle says will dominate the everyday makeup scene. Using the KB Satin Pout Dual Ended Full Pigment Lipstick and Lip Pencil instead of a traditional lipstick can help you accomplish this blotted look without the tissues.
Full bushy brows are still having their moment, but if you are getting bored of this trend, it’s fully okay to move on. Make your brows dissapear for a while, worst case if you get sick of the look pencil them in with the Full. Set. Define. KB brow pencils.
Kristofer is all about the rosy cheeks right now! He tells The Zoe Report, "I personally think it's time for blush to be embraced. It's very often underused, [but offers] an easy way to add color and 'mood' to the face," In Japan, he says, shades from pink to orange are worn high up on their cheeks and under the eyes for a cool, doll-face effect.
Time to test the waters with blush and check out KB’s Twinset Blush Duo.
Kristofer explains to The Zoe Report that Black liners and pigment are expected to take a temporary backseat to brown and deep metallic hues. A KB hack is to throw on the Satin Pout as eyeliner, it will give you a unique and dramatic pop of color to your eye.
Revamped Red Lips
Yep, Kristofer is living for the red lip revamp! He explains, “You can absolutely never go wrong flaunting a bright red lip; however, deeper shades of wine and earthy reds are becoming classics all on their own.” For a deep wine colored red Kristofer approves of, check out the KB Cashmere Slip in the Obsessed shade.
Playful Mod Eyes
Bright color eyes are on the rise! Get this look by using the Cashmere Slip as eyeshadow.
