When starting a brand or creating new products for an existing brand, it’s definitely worth gaining familiarity with what is currently trending in the industry. Consumers are more likely to acknowledge your brand if you are selling the kind of products that they already have their eyes on and using ingredients they’re familiar with. The length of time that trends tend to last in the beauty industry usually depends on the trend itself. For example, a product that’s made its way into trend regarding aesthetic or style is generally not going to trend as long as a became popular on account of being effective. Below, are a list of brands and products that have been receiving the most recognition amongst consumers at the moment.
Summer all year long

If you are interested in incorporating watermelon in your skincare routine, Lano’s Holographic Watermelon Lip Water would be a great start.

Skincare = self care
Glass skin is this idea of transparent and translucent skin
Face mists and sprays have been on an uprise for a while now; as you may have noticed that most of these products come in travel-friendly packaging as they are great for application on-the-go. That being said, they also work for home use as well; making touch up’s throughout the day is so much easier when you don’t have to wash or remove anything. The glass skin trend is a Korean skincare trend that aims for a smooth and dewy complexion reflecting light like glass. The product was inspired by consumer demand for a similar product to their Glass Skin Refining Serum. The look can be achieved from regular exfoliation as well as layering vitamin-rich skincare products. The Glass Skin Veil Mist would be a great alternative and more convenient than using multiple products at once. With face mists on an uprise in conjunction with the glass skin trend, it’s easy to see why a product like this has gained so much recognition.

The original makeup eraser looks like a face cloth with uses such as exfoliation, effective makeup remover including waterproof mascara. Saves money on makeup remover and good for the planet; this product in particular is advertised as all-natural including no chemicals.
