6 Cool Beauty Trends You’ll Want to Try

Beauty
Skincare

While they say you don’t have to follow the trend to stay stylish, there are a few we’re dying to try. From skincare to hair color, fill your beauty bucket list with six not-so-permanent, easy-to-try fads that will pump up the volume when it comes to self-care. 

 

chrome nails

1- Chrome Nails 

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who has the shiniest nails of all? Chrome nails are nailing it, and we are all about the ultra-shine, especially when it comes to the hologram effect. From au naturel to acrylics, this metallic nail trend will add some extra dimension to your look. 

Our Pick: If you want to get your glam on at home, Revlon Holochrome Nail Enamel Collection meets our must-have super reflective factor. 

 

gloss hair trend

2- Hair Gloss 

Get ready to embrace this Instagram-worthy trend—no commitment requiredIf you’re looking to color your locks sans the permanent processing, try hair gloss. Boosting the natural shine and tone of your tresses while adding subtle color that fades out within a few weeks, gloss is the way to go. And with brands like Redken offering almost every hue of the rainbow, all you need is a few minutes in the chair with your stylist, and you'll be rocking a new look in no time. 

Our Pick: Rose gold is having a really long moment, and we love it! A great color that can be customized to any complexion—especially the strawberry and peach undertonesrose gold will keep your hair glowing. 

 

tinted lip oils

3- Tinted Lip Oils 

Fancier than a balm without the stickiness of a gloss, lip oils are a must-have in our bag. The effortless way to nourish your pucker with a hint of hue, tinted lip oils are the perfect way to brighten your complexion instantly—minimal effort required. With many oils on the market (from Covergirl to Dior), you can choose a color and cost that works for you. 

Our Pick: We are all about the brush-on Burt's Bees® Tinted Lip Oil. Made with a blend of coconut and meadowfoam-seed oils, your lips are sure to stay moisturized with one of these six kissable colors. 

 

lash lift

4- Lash Lift 

An eye-opening experience, this trend is like a perm for your eyelashes. Offering the ultimate damage-free enhancement, it’s all about embracing your natural lashes at a customizable curl level that works for you. With no falsies or extensions in sight, this process utilizes a solution and lotion to keep your lash lift game strong for up to two months.

Our Pick: Wanting to add a little extra drama post-lift? Sephora’s LashCraft Big Volume Mascara gets our vote. Featuring big, smudge-proof volume, the curved brush will easily contour to your luscious lashes.     

watermelon face mask

5- Watermelon Face Masks 

Not just for your backyard BBQ, this summer superfruit is packed full of benefits that can help even the most sensitive skin. Brands like Glow Recipe (who created the seven-time sold-out Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask) made this moisture-rich fruit a tasty sensation. And with a recently launched $8 Watermelon Glow Jelly Sheet Mask, prepare yourself for serious skin hydration. 

Our Pick: If you can’t get your hands on Glow Recipe, we are huge fans of Basics and Organics Watermelon + White Tea Cleansing Milk. Chock full of natural nourishing ingredients, this formula will gently cleanse while removing even the most stubborn makeup. 

 

pigment eye shadow
6- Pigment Eye Shadow

Out with the old, in with the bold. Celebrities are turning up the voltage when it comes to this trend, and now it’s easier than ever to make your eyeshadow electric. The bright colors are super fun to play with, especially when you're getting ready for a night out on the town. 

Our Pick: Choose bright colors that either make your eye color pop or compliment a piece of your outfit. When it comes to our go-to, we-will-actually-use pigment eyeshadow, we are kind of obsessed with Rihanna’s Killawatt Foil Freestyle Highlighter Duo. The dreamy hues and creamy consistency are easy to apply so you can achieve the amplified color you desire.

Not Too Cheesy: Vegan "Cheese" Recipes That Taste Like The Real Thing

Recipes

Nutrition

We all love cheese. And if you don’t love cheese, well, you just haven’t found the right kind for you. If you’re unlucky like me, however, cheese does not like you. Thankfully, we live in 2020, where plant-based cheese recipes are alive and well.

I have been dairy-free for a few years, and cheese is truly the food group I miss the most. As much as we try, we sometimes just can’t get vegan cheese to taste like the real thing. So, I recruited my dairy-loving, cow-consuming friends to be my taste-testers. Their brutal honesty helped me create some “fake” cheese that can actually compete with the real stuff.

Goat "Cheese" Ball

Did you know you can make mouth-watering “fake” cheese with macadamia nuts? Yes, macadamia nuts. If you’re craving that creamy consistency but your stomach isn’t down for dairy, try out this recipe inspired by Simple Vegan Blog
