Beauty on a budget

With many re-evaluating their spending habits amid a global inflation, consumers still believe that beauty products are essential for that frequent dopamine boost. As the cost of living increases, price-conscious enthusiasts turn to hyper-tasking hybrid products that save not only time but money, replacing multi-step routines.


Dupe culture has also been in demand, largely driven by beauty influencers who provide budget-friendly substitute products for luxury cult favorites. Apps like Brandefy recommend alternatives to popular products, too.


Skinimalism…is still in

The clean girl aesthetic dominated our feeds in 2022, and it seems to be carrying over to the new year. Ever since the pandemic, skinimalism has been a force to be reckoned with, as our routines have drastically changed at home. But let’s face it, this isn’t exactly a resurgence of sorts. From “glass skin” when K-beauty had its boom a few years back to “glazed donut skin” thanks to Hailey Bieber’s Rhode, beauty experts just give “hydrated, healthy skin” a trendy name, which sticks.

Micro makeover

Pinterest predicts everything micro to reign in 2023—from barely-there micro bangs to short stiletto nails. Euphoria’s Alexa Demie and 2022 breakout star Taylor Russell rock the trend, as seen on celebrity makeup artist Kali Kennedy’s Instagram.

Grunge glam

Jenna Ortega AKA Wednesday reintroduced the grunge glam aesthetic many thanks to the darkly funny, top-rating Netflix series. This time, we’re no longer just thinking of a pale complexion and a vampy lip. An updated version highlights a rich smoky eye paired with a muted lip color.

Gemini hair

Geminis are passionately curious and known to constantly juggle between things. This accessible two-tone dye job is a non-traditional way to express one’s self, beyond just makeup (and definitely even with a mask on).

You may have already seen this contrasting hair combo on Dua Lipa during her Future Nostalgia days, but the rest of the world is catching on. This scene-stealing trend works well with natural and bold hues. Gemini hair is also such a great conversation starter!

This ultra-flattering auburn hue is highly requested because of its versatility on many skin tones, whether you’re going for a full-on dye or highlights. Because of the many tone options available, it’s never one-size-fits-all.
