The 3 Beauty Trends From Pinterest You Didn't See Coming

Photographed by Winnie Au.
While there are plenty of great beauty moments to be had on Instagram, we're still privy to the original trend forecasting site: Pinterest. (What can we say? Old habits are hard to break.) For years, it's been the prime space to discover underrated products or affordable alternatives to some of our favorite buys. And we recently noticed an uptick in three particular trends that we didn’t see coming — and it's all about color. Cool-toned colors, to be specific.
The news is especially refreshing, considering how peach and millennial pink were all over the red carpet, on the runway, and (more than likely) on you. Now, it seems as though consumers are looking for something completely different. According to Pinterest, that comes in the form of lavender, dark blue, and green. What makes it even better is that there are so many beauty products (and hair colors) worth trying — not to mention lots of inspiration photos for your seasonal vision board.

Dark Blue

Pinterest beauty boards these days are basically a sea of dark, moody blues — which comes as a bit of surprise. After all, when you think of starting fresh for spring, you don't exactly envision the color of the sky in winter (even if it does have a lot of glitter). But these products might just change our mind. This eyeshadow from Jill Harth is one of the most-pinned on the site, and is basically made for smoky eye beginners.

Jill Harth Sky Blue Eye Shadow Triple Play, $15.95, available at Jill Harth.

We already know fans of 13 Reasons Why are rocking blue nail polish in honor of the show, but this slightly deeper iteration is on a whole new level.

Purple

The color is having a major moment on Pinterest right now, and the shade variation is wider than we've ever seen. From bright and glimmering purple to muted lilac, we're ready to test 'em all — starting with this bright lipstick.

Somewhere between grey and lavender, this pastel purple is exactly what we had in mind for our next mani. Pinners couldn't stop saving Essie's Bangle Jangle to their boards, but sadly it's been discontinued. For now, you can replace the lilac hue with St. Lucia Lilac.

Essie Nail Polish in St. Lucia Lilac, $8.50, available at Essie.

While hair trends like peacock ombré and unicorn highlights are trending, this subtle lilac addition is all we — and Pinterest — can think about.

Green

Forest green on your eyes is just the beauty move every emboldened makeup lover needs.

A more subtle, summery pick comes in the form of this Essie favorite. Mojito Madness matches our chill summer goals — and our beach drink of choice.

Maybe you went platinum last summer and totally loved it. And maybe this year you'll test the waters again, but this time, with a mossy green.
