Ukbeauty and hair supplier Salon Services held the Sally’s SS19 Showcase for beauty pros and press, to forecast the 2019 trends in make-up, nails and hair that clients will be queuing up to get as soon as spring arrives. Inspired by the season’s boldest trends, Salon Services’ experts interpreted SS19 predictions to bring out clients’ confidence. The trends are about expressing individuality and putting your creativity in the limelight.

While this season’s make-up has a matte, neutral finish, it can be emboldened with a slick of metallic colour on the eyelids, and complemented with colour blocking on the nails. Bold palettes of fresh teal and iconic red can be softened with muted tones of terracotta.


Colour block Nails by Nina Subasic

Make a bold and stylish statement with high-contrast colour blocking on mid-length nails. Strong shapes and vivid shades let your clients’ personality shine.

STEP 1 Use ASP Powerset acrylic pink and sculpt the nails into a neat olive shape. Leave the length shorter to create an edgy look

STEP 2 Taking inspiration from the colour-blocking trend, apply block colours of gel polish freehand to create a design. Subasic used shades from the ASP Signature range, including Shadow, Laguna, Monte Carlo, Juicy Lucy and Footsteps in the Snow

STEP 3 Using a dotting tool and black gel polish, add definition with even lines of dots along the edges of your colour blocks

STEP 4 Apply topcoat for a high-gloss finish.


Bold is beautiful by Georgia Cutts

The timeless smoky eye is getting a revamp this spring, using dark, silvery shades and bronze hues, to suit all clients. Team a dramatic shimmery eye with a nude lipstick to add subtle shimmer and let the eyes do the work.

STEP 1 Use a concealer with a flat brush to map out and deine the shape of the wing

STEP 2 Apply a shimmering olive-toned pressed eyeshadow onto the lid, packing on the colour using a stiff brush. Cutts used shade Psyche from the Bodyography Disco ‘Til Dawn Palette.

STEP 3 Next, apply Ardell Beauty Faux Mink Multi- Layering Mascara in Supreme Black to the top lashes

STEP 4 Lightly brush the brows with Ardell Brow Conidentil Brow Duo to add texture

STEP 5 Use a concealer to cover any imperfections and keep the look light and natural

STEP 6 Finish with a translucent powder, highlighter and a nude lipstick.


“No make-up” make up by Georgia Cutts

STEP 3 Use a contour palette such as Contour Cosmetics to add definition to the cheekbones

STEP 4 Finish the look with Bodyography’s Blur, Set, Perfect Finishing Powder to create a matte finish

STEP 5 For the lips, apply the shade Sticks & Stones from the Palladio Ombré 2-in-1 Lip Colour collection

STEP 6 For the eyes, use a matte terracotta shade, and then highlight with a pearlescent peach. Cutts used Killer then Boogie & Dream On from Bodyography’s Disco ‘Til Dawn palette

STEP 7 Finish by using the Ardell Beauty Mega Volume Never Flat Mascara to open up the eyes and complete the look.
