Top 100 Cosmetics Trends in August

From Pizza-Inspired Eye Shadows to Cannabis-infused Lash Serums

— September 3, 2019 — Fashion
The August 2019 cosmetics trends cover the latest innovations in skincare, makeup, grooming and personal care, with unique ingredients, vivid color combinations, and much more featured.

One feature comes from The Body Shop, with its limited edition body butter, yogurt and polish making use of repurposed bananas that aren't able to be sold in supermarkets. All three products aim to reduce food waste by upcycling the fruit, and the use of the puree works to deeply nourish and moisturize the skin.

While makeup sponges have been a popular staple among makeup fanatics for some time now, the velvety blending sponge from Sunday Ivy aims to improve upon the original design. Using microfiber materials and a unique texture, the sponge flawlessly blends liquid makeup products, and absorbs 70% less product than traditional designs -- making it more effective and less wasteful.
