Eyelash Trends in 2019

The history of eyelashes dates back to 1906. D.W Griffith, an American film director, invented them. The idea was to make his actor have eyelashes that grace her cheeks. It could be one of the most brilliant inventions in the world of makeup up to date.

Since invention, the eyelashes industry has been evolving drastically, having been embraced worldwide. New trends come up day by day, and in this article, we’ll focus on the trends in 2019.

Glitter Eyelashes

Glitter eyelashes give you glam and a flattering effect. The best way to safely achieve this look is by using glittering mascara. Apply a layer of regular mascara first, then go ahead and decorate it with glittering mascara. Alternatively, one can purchase a pair of glittering eyelashes extensions.

Rainbow Eyelashes

A rainbow is known for being breathtakingly colorful. Similarly, rainbow eyelashes add a colorful and festive touch to your look. There are no rules when it comes to rainbow eyelashes, and that is the beauty of it.

You can select just a few shades of the rainbow, say three or four, to wear on a particular day. You are also at liberty to choose either bright or pastel shades.

Curly Eyelashes

Many ladies would do anything to achieve a big eye look. Curly eyelashes will give you exactly that. Curling eyelashes using a curler and mascara has been for a long time, known to deliver excellent results. Recently, eyelashes with real curls have been trending. However, it is best to avoid putting these curves and waves on natural eyelashes.

Magnetic Eyelashes

These are the best fix when you are invited somewhere within very short notice. Unlike eyelashes that use glue, they are straightforward to put on. Besides the ease of applying, they also come in handy to people whose eyes get irritated by glue. Generally, magnetic eyelashes are very practical.

Hybrid Eyelashes

The main idea for this trend is increasing the eyelashes volume. As opposed to the usual single line of eyelashes, a hybrid combines small extensions to fill in any gaps. It gives a more natural look, which is why it is rising in popularity.

Mermaid Eyelashes

The name itself is outstanding, and so is the technique. It involves adding colored eyelashes for pop and radiance. The shades are playful, such as yellow and purple. The secret to achieving a perfect look with mermaid’s eyelashes is balancing them with the natural lashes.

Eyelash Jewelry

When it comes to jewelry, it is not a reserve for the neck and fingers. Eyelashes too can be decorated. However, overdoing it can do more harm than good. Pick the most subtle designs, and you’ll get the desired effect.

Neon Lashes

For a very long time, neon has been a household shade in the fashion world. However, in the recent past, the same neon shades have made their way to the beauty world with women using them on eyelashes to make a statement.

If not applied correctly, neon extensions can turn your look from flattering dramatic. To avoid that, only put the extension on your upper lash, leaving the lower one bare. You can as well apply a very subtle hint on the outermost top lashes.

White Eyelashes

To many people, beautiful eyelashes are synonymous with outstanding colors. However, white eyelashes have recently become a thing, and they are quite breath-taking. 

Volume over Length

In 2019, unlike in past years, the emphasis is being laid on texture and size. Long eyelashes, though still trendy, are not as important as they used to be.

Half Lashes

As the name suggests, half lashes mean that you only have to put half effort. They are therefore efficient because they save you a lot of time. Besides, they are also very light, thus comfortable to wear. For best results, apply them on the outer top lashes, and you are good to go.

Brunette Eyelashes

This is a fascinating trend in 2019 and is already making its way to the top. The brunette colored eyelashes make your eyes extremely intriguing; people can’t get enough of your eyes. If you haven’t tried them out yet, it is probably time since they are neither dramatic nor attention-seeking.

Clumpy Lashes

This is your go-to eyelashes trend if you want to be extra and look dramatic. Although it was there in the past, it has made its way back to 2019. The trend involves only adding extensions to specific points and adding mascara. Dramatic, yes, but very attractive.

Accessorizing the Lashes

From adding fake petals to pompoms on your lashes, you can play around with accessories. Just ensure that they are light, for maximum comfort. They can be as colorful as you would want them.

Keeping it Simple

One thing women have embraced in 2019 is simplicity. You don’t have to have an entire face painting session to rock at an event. The new trend is just applying ordinary makeup and applying very minimal makeup on the rest of the face.

You can, however, finish up the look with a glossy touch. The elegance in simplicity is unmatched.

Zero Alterations, Just You

Of all the trends in 2019, this is probably the simplest of them all. For the longest time, people have advocated for minimal makeup, successfully. Is there a better way to keep your makeup minimal than leaving your eyelashes bare? I bet not.

Going the Nature Way

As much as beauty is the ultimate goal for pretty eyelashes, incorporating health and beauty have been trending. People are focusing on natural solutions such as aloe vera and castor oil. These oils, besides giving you a pretty look also strengthen your eyelashes. Some people also use these oils to lengthen their eyelashes.

Just like any other industry, the eyelashes industry has gone through so much transformation. The future still looks bright with new trends coming up almost every day. Manufacturers need to put their best foot forward to retain their edge in the market. Consumers, on the other hand, continue being spoilt for choice.
