Makeup Artist, Paige Padgett Predicts Top Beauty Trends for 2009

/PRNewswire/ -- The overall makeup theme for 2009 is free-spirited, yet polished. There is a strong focus on texture and finish. New, high-tech products will create interesting finishes. The trend in cosmetic spending is eco-friendly. The buzz words in beauty are sustainable, ethical, organic and natural.

-- The Nude Face has come back in a variety of manifestations. But don't
assume it's seamless; from primers to a myriad of skin-preps, this is
makeup worked to the max. The face is flawlessly finished. This look
is highly groomed and uber sophisticated.

-- Gloss, Glitter, and Gossamer is a key beauty story this year. Cheeks
will glimmer with luminizer. Eyes will sparkle with glitter. Skin will
gleam with gloss.

-- Metallics create instant luxe. And who doesn't want that? Faces will
be drenched in gold, bronze, copper, and platinum.

-- Eco and Ethical is tipped for the greatest opportunity for growth.
Organic Monitor published late last year valued the global organic and
naturals market at $7bn, and forecast that it would surpass the $10bn
mark by the end of the decade.

-- India and China are setting trends. Cosmetic companies and consumers
alike are looking to authentic remedies from the East for beauty
inspiration such as traditional Chinese and Indian Ayurvidic Medicine.
