The aftermath of the pandemic has sparked a surge of celebration, with consumers reveling in the pure joy of life’s pleasures. Drawing inspiration from the expressive, creative, and colorful makeup showcased in the HBO’s Euphoria, new reference points are emerging from the gaming sphere, while Gen Z continues to raid 90s rave culture, 80s pop aesthetics, and the nostalgic toys of their childhood for inspiration. This newfound hedonism is reflected in vibrant colors, intricate embellishments, and innovative formulations that take cues from emerging digital realms.

Makeup Webinar Insight - Cult Euphoria

Drawing on the concept of hedonism and the power of colors, the beauty industry embraces an energizing palette of hyper-euphoric tones and dopamine brights that effortlessly ignite feelings of joy and self-care. This inspiration stems from the digitalization and TikTokization of beauty, where trends and transformative content thrive. As we move towards a phygital future, temporary colors that facilitate polymorphic transformations are expected to gain more prominence.

Material textures also play a significant role in shaping the future of beauty. The focus shifts towards materials that invite sensorial play, such as elastic, slimy, and gluey textures that engage the senses and amplify the overall experience. Embracing non-conventional aesthetics and chaotic expressions further ignites the TikTokization effect, capturing attention and captivating audiences seeking bold and captivating beauty experiences.

The “Supercharged Beauty” trend captures the essence of a minimalist approach to beauty that yields maximum results. It embraces the fetishization of wellness, where consumers strive for high-shine looks that emanate a lit-from-within radiance, reflecting their hyper-healthy goals in their beauty routines.

From Fashion Week runways to viral TikTok videos, there’s an undeniable allure towards dewy skin and super-glossy hair, as they symbolize health, well-being, and a fresh complexion. It’s a trend that is not only about superficial beauty but also emphasizes skin-loving care and enhanced natural beauty, often referred to as “your skin but better.”

Consumers seek potent ingredients through super-powered serums and smart hybrids for an enhanced glow. With a skinimalist approach, this trend focuses on single products that maximize results and emphasize care and safety. Clean colors are formulated for Skintellectuals, combining skincare benefits with a touch of color through powerhouse ingredients like vitamin C, hyaluronic acid (HA), retinol, and AHAs. Additionally, SPF-infused makeup products are essential to meet the surging interest in suncare, providing protection while enhancing the overall beauty routine.
