Euphoria Makeup

There was no bigger beauty moment than Euphoria’s glittery and elaborate makeup looks. Following the show’s premiere in June, the HBO teen drama delivered unforgettable facebeats each week on stars like Zendaya, Hunter Schaefer, and Alexa Demie. The internet was instantly obsessed with bold colors, rhinestones, and glitter tears, courtesy of makeup artists Doniella Davy and Kirsten Sage Coleman.


Padded Headbands

Love them or hate them, padded headbands were all the rage this year. You can thank Kate Middleton, who was photographed wearing a pink version at baby Archie’s christening in July. But what really sealed the deal was an appearance on Prada’s spring 2019 runway. Padded headbands caught on like Instagram wildfire, with everyone from celebrities to influencers finishing off outfits with a puffy topper.


Skittles Manicure

Taste the rainbow! 2019 was undoubtedly the year of the skittles manicure. The Harry Styles-approved trend flooded our Instagram feeds with limitless color combinations and provided a simple but effective way for elevated nails.
