2014 seems to be a big year for collaborations between the biggest names in fashion and major players in the beauty department. The Jason Wu for Lancôme collection includes eyeshadow, eyeliner and mascara and it’s a step ahead when it comes to bringing runway makeup to the masses faster than ever before.
The limited edition makeup collection created by Derek Lam for Estée Lauder is another example of one of the biggest skincare trends in 2014. The mascara, eyeshadow, pencil liner, lip color and gloss are available in a designer minaudiere created by the designer.
While the first CC creams showed up almost 4 years ago, 2014 seems to be the year when these next-generation multi-purpose products will really make it big. The Revlon Age Defying CC Cream, Black Up CC Cream and Almay Smart Shade CC Luminous Primer are some of the most popular choices when it comes to this type of tinted moisturizers that also contain sun protection. Forget about BB creams and try the new generation CC creams if you want to be a part of the newest skincare trends.
The biggest cosmetic brands of focusing on products that do more and more in less time then ever before. Look for new combinations of makeup and beauty products with multi-purpose functions, like co-washes (cleansing conditioners for your hair), and for makeup brushes that deliver more finishes in a more compact form.
Offering spa experiences and other cosmetic treatments at home is another big trend and the Bare Escentuals BareMinerals 7-Day Skin Detox Mineral Brightening Peel is one of the most perfect ways to do it. With different formulations for all 7 days, this revolutionary product takes all the guesswork out of getting a great peel at home while also detoxing your skin.
One of the biggest skincare trends in France, mesotherapy is finally arriving in the US with the help of plastic surgeons like New York-based Dr. Shirley M. Madhere. Her VitaGlow method of micro-injections gives the skin all the vitamins and antioxidants it needs to get a beautiful glow. Mesotheraphy offers a more subtle effect than most cosmetic procedures, but mixing a multi-vitamin with hyaluronic acid and injecting it in small quantities right into your skin keeps your face looking fresh for longer.
Cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing)
Freezing away the fat could very well turn out to be one of the biggest skincare trends in 2014. The process has been gradually improved over the past few years and is now ready to become a true phenomenon. Using cryolipolysis, you can literally destroy fat cells with the help of a small plate that cools the skin, and the fat is eliminated naturally by your body in a few weeks.
Aminobutyric Acid (Non-Toxic Botox)
If you’ve been avoiding Botox because it is a toxin, you might be convinced to try aminobutyric acid. Extracted from snake venom, it’s injected into the face for instant effects in reducing fine line and wrinkles. While Botox paralyzes muscles, the non-toxic Botox simple blocks the signal between nerves and muscles.
Ultherapy (Ultrasound Facial Rejuvenation Therapy)
After getting the FDA approval for its skin tissue lifting effects, ultherapy is set to be one of the biggest skincare trends in 2014. The non-invasive procedure is pain-free and it can stimulate your body’s own regenerative process when it comes to tightening your skin and generating new skin cells.
Lipotripsy (Radial Wave Therapy)
Fight cellulite with one of the newest skincare trends. Lipotripsy is a procedure for that reduces the signs of cellulite using small shock waves from a hand-held device. It can increase blood flow in the affected areas and has a beneficial effect on your skin’s elasticity.
